New Provider for Cable Television

My cable bill is terrible right now. I just actually looked a the statement for the first time in a few months, and it was enough to make me sick, like literally sick. I do not know how they think it is okay to charge these bills, but I am going to switch my provider, or something. I am looking at cable-tv.com to see if there are other providers that I might be able to switch to in my area, and if so, what their prices look like.

I definitely want to get digital cable, because my kids would start a riot if we got rid of the digital cable box. I know that for sure. I mean I should tell them that we are getting rid of it, just to see what their reaction would be like. I should film it too, and maybe send it in and win some money. I don’t know if it would actually take the top spot on that show, but I know that it would be close. Continue reading “New Provider for Cable Television”

Started to Work on Buying a House

If you want to buy a house I have been trying to figure out how exactly you can do it. Of course I mean the fine details of getting it done are sort of eluding me. I realize that there are some basic precepts, for example you definitely need to get the down payment. Of course I pretty much thought that was the big thing you had to do. However if you visit site here you can see them talk about one of the things I did not know, which is that you need to get home insurance before you can even get the bank to make you a loan on a house. The underlying principle is just as simple and plain as it can possibly be, that being that the bank wants you to give them their money back with interest.

I Needed to Downgrade My Operating System

I am a big fan of change. I know a lot of people don’t like it, but that is definitely not me. I know that when things change, that it usually means something has been improved. I am also smart enough to realize that this is not always the case, which is what happened when the operating system that got upgraded on my phone was not to my liking. I wanted to go back to my former operating system until all of the kinks were worked out, so I did an online search to see how to downgrade ios to the previous version.

I knew that there had to be a way to do it, but I had not done anything like that before. I was prepared to spend a few hours to find out how to do it, but it took me just mere minutes to find what I needed to know. Continue reading “I Needed to Downgrade My Operating System”

I Love My New Straight Teeth

I used to have straight teeth, but over the years, they have become very crooked. Over time, I became very embarrassed of my teeth as a result. I have always wanted braces, but just did not do it for a variety of reasons. But a friend told me I should look for the best Invisalign braces dentist in the area to see what could be done for my teeth. She said that I would be able to get my teeth straightened without needing traditional metal braces on my teeth.

I had never heard of Invisalign before, so I started out by doing a little research to learn more about what this type of orthodontic treatment is. Unlike other types of braces, you are given aligners that can be taken out of your mouth as needed. Continue reading “I Love My New Straight Teeth”

From Condo Life to Future Wife

Thanks to a condo that I found at http://www.condogallery.com.sg/city-gate/, I was able to find a place to live, and a woman to love. I moved into the condo after living in a house with 4 other people during my college years. After college, we all went our separate ways in different countries, and I was the only one still living there. I looked for a condo and found the one I currently live in. While living in the condo, I met a girl who was living on the floor below me. We started having casual conversation each day, and eventually we started hanging out.

Our encounters turned into dates, and we became an item. Things between us progressed so much that we became engaged. I proposed to her at a restaurant and got down on one knee in the traditional sense. When she said yes, everyone in the restaurant applauded. Since we were getting married, it made no sense for both of us to live in separate condos, so she moved into mine. We had a small wedding with our closest friends and family members.

Whenever we tell the story of how we met to other people, sometimes it sounds a little corny to them, but we don’t care. It’s not everyday that a person can find the love of their life by moving into a condo. If I had moved into a simple apartment or continued staying in that house, I wouldn’t have found my wife. My wife and I hang out with the other married couples in the condo and they don’t seem nearly as happy as us. I think the reason why we’ve been able to have such a good relationship is because we have so much in common. We never get tired of seeing each other, even if we’ve been with each other all day.

A Pink Selfie Stick is a Great Stocking Stuffer Gift

I bought my wife a pink Selfie Stick as a stocking stuffer. She uses it all the time. She is an amateur photographer who has a nice DSLR, tripod and other gear. However, it is the smartphone that you have with you all of the time. She keeps the Selfie Stick in her purse. It is not that big, and she uses it to grab stills and video of things she finds interesting throughout her day. She has become an expert at using the telescopic tube that her smartphone attaches too to take pictures.

I have seen her use it to take amazing shots outdoors and indoors. She has one of a nest of baby birds that was on a low branch just out of her reach. The video looks like a camera was hidden in the nest. She does crazy stills and video with it too. Continue reading “A Pink Selfie Stick is a Great Stocking Stuffer Gift”

Just Got My First Place

I have to do a lot of things now, because I moved out of the dorms and now I am living about a mile from the campus of Johns Hopkins University. I am living with a lacrosse player I met playing pickup basketball games with. He is certifiably insane and I do not think I would want him to be my doctor, but I do not think he is going to stick with pre med either. I like him for this because he has money. For instance we are looking at information on Baltimore high speed internet access and I tell him that I can probably not afford the most expensive kind of internet. He shrugs and says that he will put it on his credit card, of course his credit card bill goes to his Dad who is a lawyer in Baltimore and his Mom who is a professor at the University of Maryland Baltimore County.
