I Am Doing Pretty Well Now

A lot of the people that I know from college are not doing so great, they need structure in their lives or they can not hold things together. I have always been able to stay motivated because of all of the money I am going to owe in student loans. They are not going to care whether or not I got my money’s worth or not, so I am working hard. In fact I think I must have wasted a lot of energy on girls, I even found a job doing HVAC near me in all the spare time I found. I really did not phrase that well though. This old guy does the work really, or he does the part that requires you to know what you are doing. He tells me what to do and smokes these nasty smelling little cigars. I drive the pick up truck, apparently this has nothing to do with his age. Instead they claim that he drives like a maniac and they can not afford to insure him.

Of course this is a balancing act, but this old dude does not seem to want to work full time either. I took him home and I can see why. He lives out in the really nice part of Long Island’s South Shore. He laughed at me when I stared and told me that his wife was a big shot at one of the stock broker things. Then he asked me if I wanted to fish off of his pier. He lives on a creek about half a mile from the Long Island Sound and they have the sort of boat that you need a couple hundred dollars to put gas in. Of course I hardly even know how to fish, but I suspect there will be girls on boats there when the weather turns nice.

I Needed to Get New Locks

The only thing that worried me when I bought my new home a couple of years ago was how many people would have access to it without my knowledge. I had read where the smart thing to do when you buy a new home was to change the locks immediately. I had no idea which of the Brisbane locksmiths to even have come out and do this, but I knew that it was something that definitely needed done because I just did not have a good feeling about the limited amount of keys the previous owners had said there were.

They seemed like decent folks, but I have seen a lot of stories on the news where nice folks do some things that are not so nice. Read More

The Perfect Tombstone for My Cousin

When my cousin passed away, it was the hardest day ever in my life. The two of us were born within six months of each other, and we were closer than most sisters. When she passed, it was a hard time for all of us, but I took it especially hard. She had entrusted me with her arrangements, as we knew that it was coming because of her poor cancer diagnosis. She helped me make all of the arrangements, and we even went to a monument store in Morris County NJ together. I thought that it would be morbid planning her funeral with her, but it was actually very helpful for both of us. Read More
