It’s so nice to finally sit and write to you. This week has been weird. I’ve been quite busy with work, maybe a bit too much, hence my 180% quota for last week, haha. I didn’t do so well last month due to me feeling sick and not being able to see my clients. I’m already at 70% for this week and Monday hasn’t even started yet. Achieving over 100% should be a piece of cake. Obviously, I’m feeling much better. Who knew taking a generic form of Allegra would make such a difference? I’m hardly coughing anymore and I’m back to feeling myself once again. Writing down what I did for the past week is like writing down on an electronic time capsule that I can put on a tiny USB for the future. Will future generations even have USBs anymore? Perhaps having a USB will be like holding a fossil to them. Maybe in the future all people will have to do is think and everything they want written will be typed out for them without the use of fingers. I read somewhere that people who suffer from seasonal depression (due to the lack of sunlight) can have earplugs that shine light into the ears which then go to the brain. Studies showed these people became happier and showed less depression as a result. The earplugs were developed in Norway.
I know. That was random, but I think it was funny!
I took Adventure Boy to camp today. He was nervous seeing all these tall boys and almost changed his mind about going. This was Adventure Boy’s first time going with the Junior High age group; gone are those days of the younger age groups. They will be going to Ocean City and an amusement park later on this week. In the coming weeks I’m taking Adventure Boy kayaking, safari, going to Ben Franklin Institute to see the Spy things and of course to see some movies. We’ve been busy helping my mom out every weekend, we’ve hardly had time to really do anything fun this summer. I’m really trying my best to raise my son to be a total gentleman even at his age. I’m always getting compliments about how well behaved and polite he is. What can I say. Down in Brazil, Brazilian children are very, very polite to their parents and elders and I promised myself to raise him as such. He’s not perfect, but near perfect. My idea of the perfect gentleman is Tom Hiddleston. Have you seen how he acts in interviews? Good lord. He’s amazing. 97% of my guy friends are gentlemen, but there is one on my FB friends who keeps “liking” all his stripper friends and their pictures being spread eagle wearing almost nothing on the pool table. Lol. And he wonders why I don’t want to date him and just be friends. Rolls eyes.
This week I’ve been debating once again whether to buy a home or continue renting. The benefits of buying a house is that I can finally own my own place and invest in it. However, when I do move out of State, I can either rent it out and have extra income or just sell it. I found this one home that has 3 bedrooms with low property taxes. I also found a very cool and modern 2 bedroom condo with a loft (I love lofts), but no pets are allowed. I’ve dreamed of owning a Samoyed dog or two for 7 years now and if that means to pass on up on this condo for my future dog, then I will do it. My mom knows a realtor who is willing to help me if I decide to buy a home. So much to think about. My lease is up in December. Buying a home takes several months with paperwork, inspections and bank approval. Good thing I’m very analytical because I see all the many facets of what goes into buying a new home. Finding a realtor I trust is also important. I’ve come across some realtors who didn’t take their jobs seriously and just disappeared on me. Never again.
National and International News: Snowden wants asylum in Russia temporarily until he decides where to live. What’s funny is he wants to seek asylum in the countries where journalist or any other person who speaks out against the government are thrown in jail. How ironic. Zimmerman was found innocent. Napolitano is resigning. A Glee star was found dead in a hotel. I don’t know him because I’ve never watched the show Glee, but it is sad. Twinkies are back on the shelf, but I said that a few weeks ago.
