The Purchase of My First Home

I’m thankful that I was able to get my first house with the help of Montecito Real Estate. I was living with my parents for a long time, and had the desire to move out, but I wasn’t ready to do so because I didn’t have the funds needed to buy my own home. My parents wanted to help me by giving me financial support, but I didn’t want to put them through such a burden. I wanted to stand on my own two feet and pay for the house with my own money, even if it meant that I would be working for a long time.

I was prepared to even take a second job to get the money needed to buy a home, but it didn’t come to that. Continue reading…

The Advantage of Pre Workout Supplements

People at the gym would always get better results than me, and I wondered why. We all seemed to be doing the same exercises, but everyone else could work out for longer periods of time, were less tired at the end of the workout, and had the most gains from the workout. I couldn’t contain my curiosity any longer and asked someone how they were getting such good results. They told me that they were using a Body Fortress pre workout supplement. I was only using some protein powder after my workout, but apparently this wasn’t enough.

I did some research on pre workout supplements, and noticed that there were powdered varieties and gels. I wasn’t sure which one to get, especially since they both seemed to provide the benefits I needed. I didn’t have a particular preference for one kind over the other, so I had to just flip a coin to decide. Continue reading…

I Kept Trying Until I Found out What Inspired Me

I dreamed of my business growing, but at the same time, I did not have faith in it happening. This is because I sometimes have faith in myself, and at other times, I do not feel strong or smart at all. But I told myself not to give up this time. I had given up on so many other things in the past, but I had determination this time around. The business grew to the point that I was able to call in someone to do a custom conference room setup for me as well as hiring more employees, too. That was when I realized that I finally had the willpower that I had been lacking for so many decades.

I can remember more than one teacher tell me as a child that I would not make much of myself in life if I didn’t follow through with things. It frustratedme to hear them say things to me like that. Looking back, I can only assume that they thought that framing things in that sort of negative light would scare me into changing. Instead, I felt deflated and stupid. Continue reading…

When You Need That Disk Array

I recently needed to buy disk arrays, and I needed to do it in a hurry. I work in information technology, although it’s not as glamorous as it sounds. If you’ve ever seen a movie where there’s a guy sitting in a glass room surrounded by stacks of hardware while he pounds away on a keyboard, that’s me. Although I must say my office and the hardware stacks are much smaller than something you would see in a Hollywood thriller. It’s more a few stacks and I’m spending most of my time reading logs to make sure hackers aren’t destroying our system.

But the boss decided to upgrade the system, and expand it, and so he put me in charge of locating the hardware to accomplish this task. Now while I work with the hardware, I’m not up to speed on actually purchasing said items. I came into this job and everything was all set up. Continue reading…
