Cleaning Up a Junked Up Property

We have started working to clean up this derelict property that the boss bought. Of course I was really interested in the current scrap metal prices after I got a look at this place. It has all sorts of junk on it, most interestingly a lot of big chunks of metal. There are three or four old junk cars and I know that the last time I sent a car to be scrapped one vehicle was worth between three and four hundred dollars. Obviously it depends on how much the car weighs and how good of a price you can get per pound for scrap steel. There are a lot of other things, including a bunch of steel plates. These are really heavy steel plates. Continue reading “Cleaning Up a Junked Up Property”

Moving into My First Apartment

I was really excited to move out on my own. I had never been completely by myself other than a few rare nights when my parents had overnight plans somewhere. I know that it can be a scary thing, but it is also really exciting when you are 23 years old and ready to tackle the world too. I knew that I wanted to look at apartments in Asheville NC rather than houses because I was just not ready to take on that kind of responsibility. Even though I would just be renting, I knew that taking care of a house requires a lot of work, just from watching my parents with their house. Continue reading “Moving into My First Apartment”

I Need to Find a Roommate

It is going to be a tough thing for me, but I am out on my own. I have found a pretty decent factory job, but it was not close to home. I had to move an hour and a half North to Toledo, up on the Great Lakes. So far I have not had any real luck looking for affordable apartments for Toledo. Of course if I want to live on my own it is going to be really hard to find a decent apartment that is in the range that I can afford. Fortunately for me I have a friend up here and he has been letting me sleep on his couch, but that is not something that is going to hold for long. You really can not expect your friend to let you stay in his place for long, it is enough to have them do it for a couple of days without complaint.

In fact I was asking him if the place where he lived had any two bedroom apartments, because that is something that would make a lot of sense if I could take him into it. Continue reading “I Need to Find a Roommate”

The Music in Korean Dramas is Mesmerizing

When my college roommate had a couple of friends over, they started watching Korean movies on our big screen TV. I thought that it was going to drive me bonkers since I didn’t know a thing about Korea at that time, but I found myself getting pulled into the story line along with my roomie and her friends. There were subtitles, but it was even more than understanding what they were saying. The music drew me in the most, and I knew that I was going to end up finding some Korean films to watch on my own to see if they had the same effect on me.

That was nearly a dozen years ago, and I still enjoy watching Korean movies to this day. I even understand a good bit of what is going on in them without having to watch the subtitles. Continue reading “The Music in Korean Dramas is Mesmerizing”

Detailed Record Keeping is Necessary

It is hard to stay in business when you are disorganized. Trust me, I know because I was disorganized for years. I still don’t know how I didn’t completely fall apart without an accounting software program like Quicken 2016. I thought that keeping track of business accounting records would be very similar to keeping track of my own personal checkbook. The only problem is, I was not very good at that either when I was left on my own to do it. I knew that I could not use a regular notebook, but I thought my system was still good.

That thought changed when it came time to do my taxes for the first time for my business. It was always so easy taking care of my taxes before because the form was so easy. I also did not have to worry about employee pay, deductions, and expenses either. Continue reading “Detailed Record Keeping is Necessary”

How Hard is It to Sell This Sort of Stuff?

I can tell that there are a lot of things that are best suited for selling on the web. For example the guy who would buy adult videos and dildos in the comfort of his own home might not do it in one of those shops. In this area none of those places are allowed to be in a lot of areas. You can not have them near schools or near a church. In fact for the most part they end up being in the part of town where you do not want to be. So it is obvious that a lot of people will not be comfortable frequenting those places. In fact in one area there are these places and there is a couple of clubs where the entertainment is of an adult nature. Continue reading “How Hard is It to Sell This Sort of Stuff?”
