Miranda called up Hector, her ex-boyfriend, to get some tips on how to save on guitar recording software. She is helping out her current boyfriend set up a music studio and he needs all the help he can get in saving up. The cost of the studio has gone sky high now and Miranda is worried her boyfriend will get himself bankrupt even before opening up his business.
Hector is a very kind man. He and Miranda became friends months after they broke up. They really call each other from time to time to ask for help and since Hector is into selling music-related stuff, he’s the first one Miranda turned to when her current boyfriend already asked for help.
There are days when I yearn to let go, really let go, and live! Like be wild for a day or two. Or take a big risk without worrying about the consequences. Or just go at the drop of a hat!
But I am not that kind of person. Sometimes I wish I am so I can throw inhibitions to the wind and be carefree for once.
Whenever Charlie goes out of the country for a business conference, he makes sure he books a flight only at United Airlines. He trusts the airline company to bring him to his business destination on time and without any hassles. He books a flight with them online, most of the time a week or two earlier than his estimated time of departure.
I’ve known Charlie for more than a decade now and I’ve heard so many of his horror stories with some of his trips abroad. Some were plain horrible while were too terrible it’s already funny when you hear it! He began traveling when he was still a medical representative of a large pharmaceutical company in the country. Later on, he opened his own pharmacy and concentrated on it after two years of launching it. He continued his travels abroad more so when he became his own boss. He would attend pharma conferences almost every quarter. In between, he would meet potential investors and business partners in other countries, too. And twice a year, he would bring his whole family for vacations in different destinations. You can just imagine the mileage being accumulated by this person in a year!
I heard that Charlie is already booked in a United Airlines flight this coming weekend. He will meet potential business partners for a pharma plant that he is building. It will be a huge deal if he closes this agreement and he is making sure he will arrive in his meeting looking fresh and ready to take on the world.
Death is a part of life. People usually get scared when they hear a person they know just died. It’s even scarier to the family members of the person who died especially if it happens unexpectedly. Problems arise not only on the loss of the person but also on the funeral arrangements. It’s very hard to think if people are on the process of grieving that’s why it’s always best to be prepared for it.
Death can strike anyone at any time so why not contact the nearest and trusted funeral service so that if Death comes knocking on anyone’s door, the bereaved family members won’t be struggling in giving the best funeral service to the one who died.
My aunt once said that it is always good to be remembered for being reliable, trustworthy, honest, and basically a good person. That’s what I have been telling the younger ones as well. I am reminding everyone to be good to others and it’s best to be remembered that way.
So when my brother was given an assignment to check the delivery of the studio amps 300 watts into 4 ohm at musician’s friend, I told him to make sure everything is in place and that to turnover the delivery to the rightful owner as soon as possible.
And that’s what he did!
He just wants to be left alone. That’s one wish that Ernie has. He grew up in a dysfunctional home with the adults fighting all the time. Every single day he dreaded going home from school. He would rather sleep in the garage where he would keep the guitar that an elderly neighbor gave him. He would rather suffer sleeping on the rough floor than be in the middle of the fighting inside the home.
He learned to love the guitar back in those days. He also began wishing to be left alone as he was way happier when nobody notices him. Now that he is older and can do as he pleases, when not at work he is all alone in his apartment, playing his old guitar.
It’s a very expensive renovation when the whole floor was taken down first before walls were put up again. That’s what we did with the second floor of our house. There used to be three bedrooms of various sizes there but we opted to take all the walls down so the whole floor would have an open concept.
We are halfway through the renovations. Walls for the single bedroom were done. Paint is slowly being applied on all walls including the ceilings. And the bathroom with the modern bathroom vanity for the pregnant lady is about to be installed tomorrow.
I do hope costs will be worth it as it’s really putting a huge dent on our savings.
I’ve always been one for bright lights. I love that a room is well lit. I guess this has something to do with my desire to always know that there will be brighter days ahead. Not only in my own life but also in the lives of all my love ones. If battery operated window candles can make everything okay, I will buy dozens of it and light it in all the windows where my love ones are.
