Tell Her That You Care

It could be very difficult for people to articulate how they feel for the ones they love. I know that my dad is a very stoic person and that it could be very difficult for him to tell us how he felt about us growing up, but he had no problem telling my mom how much he loved her. He was also very affectionate with her and it showed. He would write love poems for her and I knew that it meant a lot to her. He was very different with her than he was with us and I still have a hard time understanding that as an adult with a family of my own. Continue reading

Consulting with Singapore Movers About Moving Illegal Items

I am going to be getting out of high school in a few months and of course I am thinking about going to a trade school to take graphic design courses and art classes. Right now I realize that I am shy of the skills that I need to earn money in the field. It is not so difficult for you to sit around and doodle, but that is not what you get paid for. Probably a good number of people can earn some money as artists of the sort that you read about in books, Picasso, Van Gogh and Rembrandt. Continue reading

Finding a Reason to Smile

I have always had pretty bad teeth. I had always wished that I had taken better care of them while growing up but as an adult I was too busy to see a dentist. Or so I told myself. The truth was that after an incredibly emotionally scarring experience with a dentist as a teen, I had been far to anxious to see another. They got to a point where I couldn’t ignore them while I was living in Singapore. A front tooth fell out and I had to find a dentist to give me a dental bridge in Singapore. I was worried about the standard of care I would receive in a foreign country as well as the cost.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the cost was very affordable and I made an appointment and thought about getting some anti-anxiety medication to help me get through it without going to pieces. Continue reading
