Get "The Feeling Richer" Effect

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

I can't help it but laugh at one of the Straight Talk commercials. It is funny when they get the feeling richer effect just because they can talk all day and night to their family and friends. Few years back, my husband and I paid so much dollars to single line phone bill. In fact, I barely used my phone to call or even press a word for a text message. I don't even call a friend who lives in the same state as mine because I'm afraid we will be talking longer than one hour. We felt cheated by the big wireless phone company. I can just imagine the amount of money we could save for two years if we have been wise choosing the right phone company. 

If I have an extra money, I could buy a home theater with all the money I could save. My husband is already thinking on switching to a better phone company without any hassle, difficulty and annoyance. A phone company that has no contract, no surprise bills and with great nationwide coverage. How cool is that? A phone with everything you need that is free from activation, reactivation and termination fees. My husband's daughter is already a subscriber of Straight Talk and she's enjoying the service that a smartphone can do. She can check her Facebook, send picture message, browse the internet with unlimited calls and text messaging. Again, how cool is that? She's definitely hook, line and sinker through her phone because she's getting the feeling richer effect. At Straight Talk, everything you need in a cellphone without a contract is amazing!

The Tropical Flower Test

You Are a Dreamer

People usually totally love you or totally hate you. 
You are extremely intense.

You aspire to great things. 
You dream big, and you have the self-confidence to make your dreams come true.

You are a total brainiac who enjoys learning new things. 
You think studying is just plain fun.

You try not to go overboard on anything. 
You are down to earth, and you aren't easily swayed by emotions.

Find Love, Give Love

I never thought I would be married to a different race. My husband is a United States citizen while I am from the Philippines. I gave up on love. I never had a serious boyfriend while in school. Though I cannot hide that I envy some of my classmates who got boyfriends while in college. But I was really fine being single. I just can't find myself on a date on Valentine's Day with someone special.

After college, some of my friends who's older than me found their someone special from a dating site where it is cherished and treasured. Few months ago, I visited a friend in Florida and her family. They met on a special dating site and they have one daughter together. I can tell that they are an ideal and happy family. The product of a dating site, a family with full of love, happiness and harmony.

Finding a Home

Who would ever say NO to Hawaii? If you love the tropical weather, the fusion of Asian cuisines, the adventures on the islands, the beautiful white sand beaches and interesting culture, then you might want to live and enjoy the beautiful islands of Hawaii. The islands of Hawaii for me is a paradise. A perfect getaway for me and my husband when we needed the break from work. I miss exploring the beauty of Hawaii. We still have some islands to visit to complete all the islands. I would love to go back.

There's a lot to do in Hawaii. I was never bored when my husband and I spent our winter twice in Hawaii. It's always been the ideal getaway from the harsh winter in North Dakota. I was lucky enough to be able to explore three islands in Hawaii. If ever we will go back, we like to check Hawaii Realtors to gather informations about the properties they're selling. Who knows, we might just buy a house for the winter and enjoy the tropical weather while everyone is bundled up.

The American Pickers

My husband and I are watching some shows at History Channel. It's an interesting channel where you learn about history of a certain thing. From vintage cars to signage, from little trinkets to old furniture, everything has a story to tell. I myself enjoy the shows Pawn Stars and American Pickers. It drives me to the past where even a single silver spoon made by a famous American silversmith can be worth thousand of dollars. How cool is that?

I never did stop learning. Learning is always fun. If there is a way to learn, I do it because I need to know them. Thanks to History Channel for producing relevant and interesting shows like these. It is good for everybody.

Severe Thunderstorms

In just one week, we had two thunderstorms visited our county. It wasn't that really bad just like the one reported down south but people get scared. The first thunderstorm we had three nights ago, the campground office was open until nine o'clock to accommodate campers who keeps coming back asking about the weather report.

It is a scary thought that thunderstorms can do damage to our property. The thunder and lightning can strike big trees, buildings, people and just about everything. I have to admit that I am a little scared to even think about it and I am even more scared when something goes wrong and do damage to any of our property. The repairs isn't cheap and I know it will cost me a fortune. After a big thunderstorm, my husband will make sure that there are no signs of water damage anywhere in the house, inside and out. I have to make sure that I know who to contact right away if ever we need repairs and clean after the mess.

Break Time

Alright, I got my break yesterday morning. I was out from the campground five minutes to nine and it feels so good to finally have a little break. I went grocery shopping for our necessities and went to small department stores in town. Our town is small so I guess we can't just have it all here. If I need to go shop for a name brand clothing, I have to go all the way to Fargo and drive 100 miles to go shopping. But that's just not gonna happen anytime soon. 

My break lasted for about two hours and I am back at work again. You see, working six months of the year has its advantages and disadvantages. A job with lot of perks and a little drawback. But, I have no complains. Maybe next time, I can get longer breaks than the usual two hours.

Get Involved!

I have seen kids who got birth defects. I was thinking that maybe the mother experienced a lot of trauma, been smoking, drinking alcohol or worst, taking pills not prescribed by a doctor. Aside from the reasons, pregnant women could have taken a prescribed medicine that is not good for them that develop birth defects to their babies. My heart goes out for all babies and kids who suffer from it. Pregnant women should read labels and get involved with all the information if they have taken paxil. They may have a case and they can file a Paxil Lawsuit to the company who made them so no more sufferings and no more birth defects. They seek legal counsel.

Fashionable Scrubs

My friend in Texas works at nursing home for over three (3) years and I work in a campground for over three (3) years now. We live in Texas during winter time and I get to see her only when we are home in Texas. When she's off from work, we made sure that we see each other. One time, she came to visit me and she's still wearing her cute and stylish cotton nursing scrubs. She looks fashionable wearing them. I asked her where she buy all her cotton medical scrubs because I want to be comfortable when I'm working in the campground. It would be my cute "campground uniform" without worrying what to wear for work the next day.

I also found out that I can buy more stylish and snazzy but cheap scrubs at where I can choose different styles and colors for an affordable price. How cool is that? I don't have to worry on what clothes I will wear for work. All I have to do is, choose the style and color and be fashionable at work!

4th of July Aftermath

How was your 4th of July go? Did you prepare lots of food for the whole family and friends? Did you shoot some fireworks? What other summer activities you did last weekend? Did you have fun? Are you all stuffed from the good food? 

As for me, I worked all day since July 1st. Ever since I started working in a campground, I never did go anywhere to enjoy the full day of 4th of July. But I enjoyed it. The campers brought us lots of food in the office. We had crawfish etouffe, hamburgers, hotdogs, pork chops, barbecue spareribs and beef brisket. We had different kinds of cakes too! We had cupcakes, birthday cake, cheesecake, and strawberry pies. We're all stuffed. We didn't have to worry about what to cook because the campers were so nice bringing all good food.

World Financial Group

Saving for the future is the best thing to do. I always tell myself that I should save for rainy days. No matter what happen, we have something to get for emergencies or we will be thankful enough because we have money to pay all the bills. The reason why I'm checking on World Financial Group to cover my financial assets and learn how I can save up for my future. I always think that World Financial Group has a better idea or plan laid out for a self-employed person like me. I should study more about it because I know that the World Financial Group is helping individuals and families identify their dreams and achieve financial independence, and that's what I want!
