We Hired Housekeepers to Free Up Time for Other Things

by admin

My wife and I took on some extra work at our jobs. It put a strain on our schedule for getting other things done during our time off. We needed to still be able to visit her parents and see our friends, but we also needed to do our household chores and manage all the other aspects of daily living. We hired a part time cleaner in Singapore to clean our condo. This was an efficient use of resources. The hours of working earned us more than it cost us to hire the person to clean our condo. The time savings allowed us to get more things done and still have some time for rest and relaxing entertainment. Without the ability to relax and refresh, then a job can become too tedious. We did not want to get burned out at our jobs. Making more money to save is great, but you want to enjoy your life too.

I think that our professional cleaner does a much better job than we did even when we had more time. Read the rest of this entry »

Visiting My Parents and Their New Place is Giving Me a New Start

by admin

After my divorce earlier this, I felt really lonely. My parents have been living in another country for the last 5 years, so I didn’t have family to spend time with at first. They moved overseas to purchase a Singapore New Futura Condominium, and they often emailed me photos and emails about their new life so far from me. I lived on my own for awhile, but I really missed them. Being single meant that I no longer needed to answer to someone else, so my dad told me that he was sending me an airplane ticket so that I could visit him and my mother.

My ex-husband was always very controlling. He always wanted a say in everything that I did. I had once planned to go to Europe with some friends of mine, and he came up with every excuse in the book as to why I should not go. He told me that we could not afford it and did his best to be negative about it. I decided not to go because I was tired of listening to him. After he was out of the picture, I was free to go where I wanted. Read the rest of this entry »

Extra Tutoring Help is Getting Me Through My Hardest Class

by admin

Physics has never been a class that I have had an easy time with, but I know that I must pass the required classes in college in order to continue on to graduate with my chosen degree. I’m taking my second year of physics, and I had such a hard time with the first year as it was. I was looking online for help when I learned about Singapore physics tutors. I asked my parents if it was something that I could do, and both of them agreed that I should enroll myself. They were both pretty happy that I was being proactive about trying to get help, so I joined and really enjoy it.

I can’t wait until I graduate. I’ve never loved going to school in general. However, I have been working ever since I was in high school, and I have always enjoyed working. You can get up and move around and do all sorts of things in the workplace. Read the rest of this entry »
