I was hired as a professor at the Art Institute of Salt Lake City a few years ago. I looked at the different cities and towns around the institute so I could find where I wanted to live. When I came across the city of Taylorsville, I was impressed with everything that I read about it. It is only nine miles from the institute too, which is not a bad commute at all. I then did a search for apartments for rent in Taylorsville Utah to see if there were any decent apartments there.
I would much rather travel a little further if it meant having a nicer apartment, but I did not have to worry about that because I found a really great place to live in Taylorsville. The apartments at Autumn Glen are really nice, and I was impressed with what all they had to offer to me as a tenant. Continue reading “A Nice Apartment That is Close to Work”
I was helping my Dad out the other day and I realized that he must have had about thirty garbage bags full of crushed aluminum cans behind his garage. They were all covered up with this great big green tarp and at first I had no clue what could have been under there. Of course he explained that he was waiting for scrap metal prices to go back up. He said that he would take them up if the price got back up to sixty five cents, which is almost a quarter more than the current price of aluminum cans apparently. Of course that makes a lot of sense. Continue reading “My Dad Has a Whole Lot of Crushed Cans”
I work from home, so when my husband told me we had to move, the first thing I did was check out Internet availability in the area where he was being transferred to. He does the majority of his work at the office, so it would not matter to him what kind of Internet connection we had. I don’t have that luxury though, but it turned out to not be a problem. When I saw that I would be able to get FiOS, all of my worries disappeared. I have had FiOS for the last few years before we had to move, so I was happy that I would be able to carry on with it in our new home. Continue reading “I Needed a Good Internet Connection”
I just decided to move to Texas. Well it is not like I decided out of the blue that I wanted to live in Texas, or anything like that. Rather, I received a really good job offer from a company that is based in Texas, and obviously, in order to accept said job offer, I had to relocate. I am pretty excited about this opportunity, but moving is always a bit of a drag. I will need to find out more information about energy providers in Texas, so that I can pick a company to go with once I start the process of moving into the new house that I bought.
I thought about just renting for awhile, so that I could find out if the new job was going to work out, but after thinking it over some more, I realized that buying another house was a good investment, because it seems that the housing market is going to keep going up, for at least a few more years, but probably longer. And besides, it is not much more expensive to buy a house than it is to rent an apartment, in terms of monthly payments on your mortgage and such anyway. But of course, it is a good bit harder to get rid of a house that you don’t need anymore than it is to get rid of a rental agreement that you don’t want to be a part of anymore.
In any case, I was pretty shocked to find out that there are a whole lot of energy providers that you can choose from in the state of Texas, which is pretty cool, but not something that I am used to. Where I am from, you just buy electricity from the local energy company and that is all there is to it.
I decided that I needed to make a change with my body last year. I let myself go for far too long, and I was really feeling the effects. I no longer felt like I did in my twenties and thirties, and I was only 48 years old. If I had to pin down an age, I would say that I felt like I was in my fifties. In no way shape or form was I anywhere near the best for Australia or my wife. I wasn’t even in good shape for myself. I felt fatigued, old and grouchy. I couldn’t take it anymore, and a lot of things needed to change.
My biggest fear was that I had done too much damage to my body by not taking care of myself. As a young man in my twenties, I did work out at times, and I ate a pretty healthy diet. But by the time I reached my thirties, I became lazy. Continue reading “I Finally Started Doing What is Best for My Body and Mind”
