A safe storage compartment

Have you heard about locker? Some lockers are made up of wood and some are steel. I appreciate the concept on how it was built to store things in which many people could enjoy the storage compartment without requiring a large area. There are many places in which lockers are very useful. Examples are in schools, offices, gyms, airports and etc.

I remember when I was working in a big company with many employees; I was once assigned to make canvass of locker for sale in our town. It was a big tasked to my part especially that getting the best quality of lockers at the least price was very difficult. There were many procedures to make on purchasing an item with huge amount involved. The standard procedure of canvassing the prices must be observed and must be presented into detailed.

There are numbers of features or characteristics in which lockers may vary especially the width, depth, height, color, thickness and etc. It was an exhausted but very challenging tasked to my part because I was given the chance to practice the standard way of purchasing an item with a large amount involved from canvassing up to purchasing it.

When we had chosen the supplier for our lockers, we then presented the proposal to the rest of the employees. Most of the employees preferred to use the wood lockers but one of our supervisors did not agree on wood locker. She said there must be a variety on the lockers we have chosen and that she suggested of having our gym lockers made up of steels. Our gym was on separate building which was attached to our building. She also added that having steel gym locker gives additional beauty to our gym. Her suggestion was being agreed and approved by everybody. Every one of us was confident that our things left in our own lockers was safe and secured.

Thank God for the Strenght

I though it was my end when I got a high fever and hard of breathing last Friday. I never thought of being sick because I never felt any early symptoms of sickness the day before I was confined in the hospital. I thought I was a healthy person but it was just a deceiving feature of the real me. Inside of me was the worst of all, the deceiving acts of viruses that almost took my life. Huh!! Praise God for saving me from death. For the first time I was diagnosed with viral Pneumonia and asthma. I was in the hospital for how many days and now I am still praying for my fast recovery. I am claiming God's promises. My body is His' temple and no one could harm me. I am serving the God, who is greater , powerful, merciful and loving than he that is in this world. Thank God for a complete healing and for my strength.

My Math Problem Solution

It was 5 years had passed since I stopped schooling. Just the 2nd semester of 2009 I had decided to go back for school to take up another course to enhance my knowledge. It has been a while since I am out of school so I find difficulties on adjusting to some of my subjects especially the Math. On the previous job I had been working with for more than 4 years was merely involved more on writing letters for our reports, advertising and marketing strategies for our products. It has been a while also since the last time I encounter arithmetic.

Last week my Math teacher confronted me about the low grade I got this last grading period. She was afraid I will be failed if I will not put effort to work it out this last grading period. What a pressure to my part especially that I only had one more grading period left to catch up. I am a bit worried on how to get a higher grade as early as possible to pass the subject. I am not just aiming to pass but to have a higher grade for math subject this semester.

As I chatted with my niece this morning and I shared with her my math problem. She suggested to me the Online Math Tutoring which she uses for more than a year already. I remember also that my K12 younger brother has been using an Online Math Help for more than 2 years already. It never came into my mind how helpful it was to my younger brother this Math help since he was elementary until now. Since I already had an Online Math Tutoring for my math problem, I am confident to pass the subject with a high grade I expect.

Student’s Frustrations

There are many students that would excel to some subjects but very poor in others. This is one of the most frustrations to most students to graduate from school. As we all know that Physics, Chemistry and Science are the subject that most students are having a hard time of understanding it from theory to calculations.

Just like what my hubby had experienced during his high school years but for me I never had one. Computer before was not too popular and we do not even have an internet in order for us to research or access online about the answers we were looking for. Today, students are so lucky enough to have new innovation online tutoring for the subjects that they are having a hard time with.

My classmate shared to me one time about how happy she was when her father had provided her an online help since K12. Since then she never find a hard time to some of her difficult subjects. She was very confident that somebody could help her tutored anytime she likes. She shares the big help she got from online about the Physics Help, Chemistry Help and Science Help to our best friends. Tutor is very important especially to those students who are having a hard time on understanding very complicated subjects.

New Year’s resolution

One of my new year’s resolutions for this year is to become more progressive as person. In spite of my busy schedules as a student and a wife at the same time; I will make sure to give myself enough time to relax.

Have you heard about planters? Yes, planter for plants. In my case, planter is very useful. I am fond of plants but do not have enough space because we are just renting a house. Plants make my mind relax especially having seen those green plants and beautiful flowers which we placed inside planters. Hubby got the idea of maximizing our area with plants without destroying or redecorating the apartment. Outside the window hubby bought me window box planters for those plants that need sunlight.

Flowers or plants add beauty and fresh air in your home. Your house does not need expensive materials or furniture to make people appreciate on how you decorate it but the way you put natural decors like flowers either inside or outside your house is what matters most.

There are some plants which can survive inside the house. Last week we bought some high end planters for our dwarf coconuts and dwarf pine trees, which we bought along the way back home from a travel. The dwarf plants are good decorative plants along the way to our porch.

My Best Friend Vacation

The New Year of 2010 has just started and the long holidays of vacation from school and work has ended. This morning I received a call from my best friend who just arrived from their family travel. It was a perfect time for her to spend with her family as part of their family bonding during Christmas holidays and as a part of celebration for her promotion from work. The kids have a long school break for Christmas vacation so they decided to spend it outside the country.

I am so happy for her especially that she finally got the promotion she has been aiming for. Her husband surprises them with a descent trip and decided to stay at Myrtle Beach Resort. My best-friend asked me if I have heard about the Myrtle Beach Resorts. I’ve heard about the resort but never gone to the place yet. I was wondering what makes the resort so special to her hubby for his wife and kids. My best-friend Sheila said that her hubby likes the views, place, food and especially the ambiance of the Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resorts.

We have chatted more than an hour about their travel. She shared to me her greatest memories they have had during their stay at Oceanfront Myrtle Beach Resort. She never realized how her hubby really treasured the family bonding and making ways to maintain their closeness despite of their busy schedules. My best-friend Sheila is planning to bring us with her family this summer. I am so excited to go with them this summer.
