Many months ago, I found a condo near MRT to live in while I was attending college. The condo was close to the college, so I didn't have far to go to get to class and the library. This has been really beneficial for me, because there have been plenty of times where I've woken up with only a few minutes to get to class. A lot of college students live in the condo besides me. In fact, the condo is one of the top options for students in the area. Those who don't live in the condo either live in some other nearby housing or commute from farther away.
While on campus one day, I met a girl who lived in another apartment nearby. We started talking and I told her that I was living in the condo. She wanted to live in the condo, but couldn't afford to do so at the time. I invited her to my condo so she could see it and she agreed. We hung out for a couple of hours, talking, watching movies and eating food. She eventually had to go home to get some work done, so I took her back to her apartment.
The next day, when I was in one of my classes, I noticed that the girl who I had been hanging out with was in the same class. The class has close to 100 people in it, and takes place in a large lecture hall, so it's a little hard to see everyone who is in the room. She sits closer to the front of the hall, while I'm closer to the back. I walked up to her and mentioned that I didn't know she was in this class. Now we hang out pretty much every day to discuss our class and other things. Go On Studying
Sometimes you just find yourself without a ride. For a number of years I've been travelling rather frequently with my company as we work on a multi-national project that has many of us criss crossing the globe. For the most part it has always been an easy transition from one place to another with rides always available until the other day when landing in Penang, the regular driver hadn't shown up. Not a big deal thanks to Penang Budget Car Rental being right there. Cheap prices were of course the main draw but when I found out I could actually get a driver, I was sold. Go On Studying
I've never driven in the city so I really didn't trust myself to not get lost which is why a driver was pretty much necessary. I'm lucky that I haven't had any other problems like this crop up before so I guess it can be said my company really does watch out for us and everyone drops the ball once in a while. Apparently orders were mixed up and they thought we were coming in at a later date - the day that we were supposed to be leaving, in fact. At least they were prepared that day.
It can be difficult for a bachelor with hopes of having a family to spend the amount of time that I do in the air. I am giving up quite a bit of my life with the hope that I can move forward when the time is right and have the money that I need to build a family from it. It's going to take a couple of more years at least until I feel financially secure in my decision to start a family but I trust that I will have everything in order when I do.
I was up in Anchorage last weekend. They offered me the job and it looks like a great deal at first blush, but it is hard to say whether or not I would be ahead of the game or not. You have to figure out what it is going to cost for instance you need certain things, like the Internet and cable tv. I was trying to figure out what I am going to have pay for that sort of thing, looking at site like this one, http://www.cable-tv.com/comcast/alaska/anchorage/ and trying to get a grasp on what it is going to cost for us to live up there. Of course I am think that you are making more money up there because it is going to cost a lot more for a lot of the things that you need. In fact when you think about it Alaska produces a lot of things, like seafood, oil, timber, minerals and so forth. However just about any manufactured goods you buy are going to have to come from a long way off.
In fact every place has stuff from all over the world. You look around your house and you will see a lot of things that were made in China or Germany or in Malaysia and so on and so on. However there are lots and lots of things going to North Carolina or Florida, places where there are tens of millions of people living in relatively compact areas. It is not like that in Alaska. Anchorage is not far from Vancouver or the U.S Northwest, but it is still not close to those places. The rest of Alaska is a very long way from Anchorage and it is very hard to get stuff to where it needs to be up in that part of the world. Go On Studying
