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..

I Use Surveys to Decide New Dishes

I own a restaurant, and I am constantly changing our specialties. If something is really selling well, then we will rotate it with a few other dishes several times a year. I don’t want to invest in a dish without getting some prior knowledge on how well people will be receptive to it. I know the best way to know this is by receipts at the end of the day, but I also use a survey creator so I know whether to even try a new dish out or not.

I used to create new dishes without doing this, and it was always hit or miss with our patrons. Some of the dishes sold out quickly we took a loss on others. Those losses are what hurt us the most, so I knew that I had to do some homework before committing our kitchen crew to the work. If it was not going to pay off, then it just was not worth it to even try on certain dishes. I found out that the best way to do this was just to compare some ideas for dishes that I had with one another. … Read More..

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 Fire Mat is a Great Idea for Candles

One of the things I remember most about growing up is how many candles my mom would burn. It does not seem there was a day that had gone by that there was not a candle burning somewhere in our house, even in the summer months. My mom not only burned them, but she made them too. She just loved creating different scents, though she just buys them now that she is older. She still burns them daily though, which is why I did a search for feuerfeste unterlage not that long ago.

My mom is nearly 80 years old now, and she is still very independent. She has gotten a bit forgetful at times though, which is why I was afraid that she would leave a candle burning when she dozed off for a nap or for the night. I knew that there were products available that would help to prevent that.… Read More..
