I Am in Amsterdam Again

I got back here just about two weeks ago and I have been getting settled in. In fact things seem to be working out pretty well. The last time I was here I was really interested in this very attractive young lady, but she had a boyfriend at the time. At any rate I ran into her almost immediately when I returned and the obstacles are no longer there, except for right now she is undergoing commerciele training for her job. That is at this town called Appeldorn which is probably an hour to the East of here. Of course I have to really be careful when I travel in this country, it is not very difficult for me to get lost with the language barriers. I speak the language on a very limited level, but honestly I can manage because English is quite commonly spoken in all of the places where I go. At any rate the training starts early in the morning and ends in the evening, so there is not much time left for my pursuit.

Of course the big deal today is the Women’s National team winning their semifinal tonight against the Swedes. That is really important here, the Netherlands has had a good team for some time and they obviously want to be the USA for the Women’s World Cup. No one here wants to talk trash to me, because they are quite polite and they all know that we are very good at the women’s game. If it were men’s soccer then they would likely feel as though they had it in the bag, although I do not think that we even made the World Cup in men’s soccer. I obviously do not know as much about the game, offsides seems stupid to me for example.… Read More..

A Scooter Temporarily out of Service

My grandfather has been using a mobility scooter for a few years now, and recently he had to get a new battery because the old one wouldn’t hold a charge. The battery was fine when he first started using the mobility scooter, but as the years passed, the battery began to need charging more frequently, until one day when it just stopped. Since my grandfather isn’t the most tech savvy person, he asked me to help him order a battery online. I found a battery at https://slkmobility.com/mobility-scooter-batteries/ that was compatible with his particular scooter.

While waiting for the battery to arrive, I had to push my grandfather around to whereever he wanted to go. He could do some walking, but only for short distances, and needed to use his old wheelchair most of the time. His arm strength isn’t what it used to be, so trying to push a heavy chair around like a younger man would have been quite a difficult task. He uses the chair to go everywhere. Whenever he makes a trip to the store, he normally uses the scooter and loves rolling around in the store aisles, but with the chair, I have to push him around the aisles. He always wants me to go faster, as if he’s in some kind of go cart. I never thought being pushed around would be fun, but to him it was fun.

Once the battery arrived, I took out the old one and put the new one into the scooter. My grandfather was happy to have his scooter working again, but also missed that I wouldn’t be pushing him around the store anymore. I told him that I could come back and push him around some more if he wanted, but then he said that I would only slow him down.… Read More..

The Tool Online That Improves My Reports

I am not the best wordsmith around. In fact, I would not even qualify as an average one! I do have determination though, so I knew that I needed to find some help when I had to write some reports. If they just needed to have facts in them, I would have been okay with that. However, they needed to have personality in them too. I have a good personality in person, but it does not come across in the things I have to write. That is why I found a reworder tool online, so my reports would not be so dry and boring.

I had looked long and hard for a tool just like this, and I had tried several but had never been satisfied with what I found. When someone told me about the paraphrase tools website, I went there and tried it out. I put in one of my more basic reports just to see what it would do. It changed it up just enough that it did add some spark to it without completely changing the overall tone. I could not have asked for anything better than just that!

When I started handing in my reports after I started to use the reword tool, my boss asked me what had changed. He knew that the reports were still mine, but he could see the extra spark in them, just as I had. When I told him about the tool that I was using online to help me, he wanted the website address. I had no idea that he wanted to use the tool for himself too! When I get his emails now that have reports in them, I can see a difference too. They are so much better, just like my own reports that are better with the reworder tool! … Read More..

Brandon and I Write a Paper

Brandon and I have been best friends since childhood. We have been it some very interesting adventures. We even attended the same college. I never expected that to happen. For as long as I know him, Brandon has always had a major flaw. He would constantly shirk his responsibilities. It was hard for him to stay on task for anything. He would get easily distracted instead of doing his work. I found out the hard way about Brandon’s problem in college. We did a paper together. I used a plagiarism checker and it saved our college careers.

Once, Brandon and I were took an American history course. Our professor assigned us a paper. The topic that we had to write about was the Civil War and its importance. We had to work in teams of two. Normally, I would work by myself and make a perfect grade on my paper. Unfortunately, our professor required us to work in pairs. I wanted to ask Allison Tang to be my partner. She was smart and very beautiful. I knew that we both have good ideas for the paper. Just as I was about to ask her, my friend Brandon approached me and suggested that we work together. As soon as I turned around, Alice had already partnered with someone else. Brandon would have to do… Read More..

I Just Found out We Have Money

I was never really aware that my girlfriend’s father had any money, although I have known him for about four years I guess. They live in a normal house, although it is rather nice and they have a swimming pool. At some point he did talk to me about being a bitcoin trader, but this was right after I met him and at the time I was not really sure what bitcoin was. Of course the man never really seemed to do very much, but I thought this was because his wife was the vice president of a fairly large company. I never saw his office until recently.… Read More..
