New Apartment Mishaps

Guest post from: Kent Lara

When I first moved into my new apartment everything went very well at first. The place seemed to be in great shape, and I was excited to get a fresh start after the hard work it takes to move. I went to and connected my satellite TV, moved all my furniture in and got settled. I started to get to know the neighbors too, and they were all very friendly and happy to give me suggestions about the neighborhood. It wasn’t until the second week that I was living there that things started to go wrong. First, the toilet in the guest bathroom backed up for absolutely no reason. I don’t know what happened to the plumbing in the building, but something was definitely going on. After that, my dishwasher stopped working, and the shades fell off of my bedroom window. It took me two weeks to get maintenance in to fix it all. I was upset, but hopefully now that everything is fixed things will go better. I am locked into a one-year lease, so I don’t have much of a choice either way.

She goes to a super store and buys it in bulk and I really should go with her one of these days because she really soes get great stuff at great bargains.

Movng Up the Ladder

The article written by Victor Flowers

Today, I turned on expertsatellite and tried to get my mind off of everything that I had left untied at work. It was my day off, but I was being bad and bringing my work home with me. I used to never bring my work home. I was always really carefree and worried about work only when I was there. Actually, now that I think about it, I didn’t ever even worry about it. Part of the problem that comes with being promoted ( I was delighted to get a promotion!) is having a lot more responsibility. In my case, it means being responsible for other workers and their production. I never realized what my boss meant before when she said that she worried about something all weekend. Now I find myself doing the same. Honestly, I don’t know that all of the worry and extra effort is worth the pay! It was good for my career but if moving up the latter means worrying that much more, I don’t know that I am cut out for this job!
