Get Whatever You Want in 4 Easy Steps

This is a sponsored post and everything written here are my thoughts and opinions.

2016 is almost over and you are now asking yourself what happened to the days when you were supposed to save money. You mope and think about it. What went wrong? Do you still remember the time when you vowed to save money at the beginning of the year? How about the daily expenditure plan you have made to organize and keep up with your saving goals? Well, I guess it is time to say goodbye that little dream of yours for you can never buy that iPhone 7 you have always wanted. Your saving plan did not go kablooey for no reason. It was you. But as the old saying goes, everything happens for a reason. It is not too late. You can start anew with your saving plan, this time much disciplined and goal-oriented. So, here’s how:

4 ways

Step 1. Set a goal. Ask yourself what you want, what do you really want to achieve. If it is an iPhone or a car, then be it. You must be determined to get it.

Step 2. Develop a saving plan. In a small notebook or a piece of paper, write your daily budget. Organize what you need to do, divide your allowance into portions (depends on you, really) –food, transportation, savings, etc. This way, you will keep track of your expenses and remaining money. If written on a piece of paper, stick it to your wall as a reminder.

Step 3. Discipline yourself. When you want to buy something, use the Need vs. Want principle. That is self-explanatory.

Step 4. Be smart. Always look for discounts. When you already reached your target money and ready to buy your dream iPhone or whatever it is, look for discounts. Plenty of sites on the internet such as Verizon Wireless, Tillys, offer discounts for various stuff such as smartphones. Different coupons from Groupon Coupons are also available. Think wise and do not just settle for what is good, look for the best.

Botox Treatment for Younger Look

This is a sponsored post and everything here are my opinion.

While the young generation is living like a grown-up individual, adults, on the other hand, tend to do everything to look younger. Ironic, isn’t it?

Nevertheless, this is the reality and is what we see especially in the social media. This is also one of the reasons why Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons coupons are getting fancy. An example of groupon offering discounted treatment option is for treatment with Botox.

Botox is produced by certain bacteria and is usually utilized to treat swallowing problems, breathing and even speaking. It is usually injected in the muscles of affected area. For instance, in elbows, wrists, fingers that usually have muscle stiffness, Botox is injected. However, in the cosmetic industry, Botox is used to treat sweating of the underarm, but only given when topical medications usually fail. It is also injected to the wrinkled area of the face. Others wanted to correct their wrinkled forehead and so Botox is injected in the frown lines between the eyebrows to look even younger that is wrinkle-free. Some wanted to modify their facial smile, and perhaps have the Botox in the cheeks area near the sides of their lips.

There are a lot more advantages in having yourself a Botox treatment. It is even more achievable because of Groupons that are affordable and less pricey.

Things to Know If You Want to Run for Office

If you’ve ever dreamed of running for political office, you can turn your fantasy into reality if you’re able to fulfill certain requirements. Whether you wish to become a member of commerce, get elected as your state’s governor or hold office as president, there are many different positions that may be open to you. Here are a few basic things that you should know if you plan to run for office in the U.S.

Be of Age

Certain political positions have strict age requirements. To run for president, a candidate must be at least 35 years old. Senators and representatives must be 30 and 25 respectively. If you want to be elected as governor of your state, each state sets its own age requirements.

Have the Right Amount of Experience

Although experience isn’t necessarily required to hold a position in office, it helps with your credibility. Listing your experience on your campaign’s website and in other publications can get the attention of voters who may be more inclined to choose you. Mike Crapo is just one example of a politician who has used his prior experience in law, congress and the senate to his advantage. Even if you don’t have the experience of someone like Crapo, you can still draw upon experience in other fields to persuade voters.

Pay the Fees

In order to be eligible to receive votes officially, you must pay the required fees. If you plan to run for state office, you will need to check your state’s specific fee structure. You will need to come up with at least $5,000 in campaign contributions or personal funds before you can become a candidate for federal office.
Clearly State Your Causes

Voters will want to know what you’re about, and you should be ready to state the causes that you wish to promote. You should stand firm in your convictions so that more people will be inspired to follow you.

Study Your Opponents

You should study your opponents’ tactics and learn about the issues for which they stand so that you can prepare solid arguments if you ever take part in a formal debate. You can also use the information that you learn about your opponents to find weaknesses and create campaigns to exploit their shortcomings. You may even luck out and be the only candidate who’s running for a particular position.

Respect the Process

Running for office requires a lot of time and commitment, and you’ll likely face a lot of challenges along with way. You might feel frustrated over certain circumstances that are beyond your control. Regardless of the obstacles you may face, you should respect the voting process. Respecting the process is also important if you lose, and showing humility and class in the face of defeat may convince people to vote for you in the future if you ever decide to run for office again.

Trying to obtain a position in government can be a rewarding ordeal regardless of the outcome. If you meet the necessary requirements and are willing to work hard, you may find yourself winning a position in office.

Where is the Nearest Guitar Center?

Holiday season is just around the corner and gift-giving is one thing that every child and child-at-hearts are excited for. Of course, that includes me as well. Although malls and other establishments are still hyped for the Halloween, I am getting really more excited with the holidays then.In fact, as early as now, I am already thinking and trying to complete my list for gifts to share. I also tried figuring out where is the nearest guitar center that is accessible from our new abode since I plan to buy my little man a new set of kiddie guitars or, perhaps, a drum set instead.

Guitar Center

Sad to know, the guitar center is obviously far from here and I still need to transport half an hour. It’s alright. At least I have known where to go when I need to get one.

Moreover, going back to my list, I might have this completed after the Halloween since we will be preparing for the trick or treat events that our little man will be joining.

First Day Of Fall 2016

It’s first day of fall today, September 22, 2016, Thursday, based on the Eastern Timezone. But off course, living in a Pacific timezone, we only have two seasons, the wet and dry. Obviously, we can not enjoy the changes in seasons, the 4 seasons every year.

First Day of Fall 2016

So this first day of fall 2016, as with my friends abroad both online and offline who are enjoying today’s great day, I just want to sing with you all the song You’ve got a friend. Maybe you’ll ask me why, but this is because the lyrics mentioned the four seasons. But more of that, is the idea that whatever the season would be, and even we are miles away from each other, we still are connected by heart we always can depend one another as we always have something to lean on called a friend.

I, myself, could not contain my emotions in me so I decided to try the song in our newly bought karaoke set. I have not fully assembled our system yet because I have not purchased a speaker and an amplifier. The speaker and amplifier set that I like most are those like from the musiciansfriend.com crown amplifiers and speaker. I have already checked and compared brands from one to another, considering their prices and their physical look to fit in my home video and audio interior designing. But at least, of I have here can still cater my moments in singing out my emotions.

3 Reasons Why Large Trucks Cause Fatal Car Accidents

Highways are full of 18-wheelers and oversized commercial vehicles. It’s not safe to assume, however, that the people operating such heavy machinery are highly skilled and heavily trained professionals. Large trucks cause fatal car accidents every day, and there are several reasons why.

Large Trucks

Inexperience

The commercial driver’s license (CDL) exam involves passing a written test, and briefly driving a large truck around a closed area. The examination is similar to what must be done to acquire a regular driver’s license. The training requirement for new truck drivers, after they have earned their commercial driver’s license, is to spend 10 hours in the classroom – that’s just a little over one work day of learning time. By anyone’s standards, the sound of that kind of training, especially for someone who will be operating a huge vehicle, seems insufficient. Of course, it can be argued that learning by experience is better than sitting at a desk, but time on the job is better spent when the newbie is equipped with the right tools to absorb all the information at hand. Otherwise, motor vehicle operators on highways are surrounded by grossly inexperienced – and therefore, dangerous – large truck drivers every day.

Distraction

Are you easily distracted by your cell phone while driving? Commercial truck drivers are not immune to the pull of technology. And these solo riders are no doubt looking for some stimulation and connection with people after driving alone for hours. Cell phones certainly makes it seem like you have company on long drives. Text messaging, talking on the phone, even surfing the web can lead large-truck drivers to cause distracted driving accidents with smaller motor vehicles. Distracted driving is right on par with drunk driving for accidents and fatalities.

Exhaustion

The federal driving limits for truck drivers are to have no more than 14 hours on duty and no more than 11 hours of drive time. Drivers must take breaks for rest, but even that sleep is unlikely to be solid or restorative. At many truck stops, drivers are only allowed to park for a few hours at a time before being cleared out to make room for other drivers to park and sleep. It’s safe to say that, even if they’re fueled by a lot of caffeine, truck drivers are certainly in danger of getting drowsy behind the wheel. And exhaustion is a serious form of distracted driving and cause of auto accidents

Overconfidence

Veteran large-truck drivers may feel confident taking it easy behind the wheel because they’ve been on the road for so long. The old-timers may push themselves a little harder to get to their destination because they want to end their trip. They may not rest enough or they may be too comfortable with familiar travel routes and take their knowledge of a road for granted. Beware truck-driving newbies as well as veterans. Their experience does not always come out on top.

It is naïve to assume that every driver of a large truck is qualified to do so. Motor home operators and drivers of private moving vans do not need a CDL license, nor to drivers of military vehicles on active duty, police or fire emergency vehicles, and farm equipment. While many national trucking companies have increased their standards and worked independently to provide weeks of extensive training with senior operators, large-truck drivers are still dangerous.

There are laws in place to protect you if you have been in an accident with a commercial driver, including third-party negligence laws.

This is excerpted from Wikipedia:

Independence Day (Filipino: Araw ng Kasarinlan; also known as Araw ng Kalayaan, (or “Day of Freedom”) is an annual national holiday in the Philippines observed on June 12, commemorating the Philippine Declaration of Independence from Spain on June 12, 1898. Since 1962, it has been the country’s National Day.

And since, it is holiday, what are you going to do now? As excerpted from Wikipedia:

The day is spent with family bonding with friends and relatives and in either outdoor and indoor activities. All government offices and schools are closed as are private enterprises save for commercial establishments. As required by law the Flag of the Philippines, first flown on that day in 1898, is displayed in homes and establishments from as early as May 28, Flag Day, or on a selected date of May by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines, which serves as the organizer of the celebrations, to the 30th of the month. Fireworks displays are the norm. Kawit, Cavite holds a yearly commemorative act with the flag raising at the Aguinaldo Shrine and the reading of the Philippine Declaration of Independence. Worldwide, Filipinos will gather on June 12 or a date close to it to publicly celebrate, sometimes with a Philippine Independence Day Parade.

Happy Independence Day Filipinos!
