I Had a Makeover After My Divorce

Thursday, November 30th, 2017

I went through a pretty rough divorce and was not feeling too good about myself. My ex had said some very hurtful things to me, and I believed them at first. I took on all the blame for the divorce, but my friends quickly put an end to that. Friends are supposed to lift you up, but my friends were doing more than that. They were showing me the truth, and I believed them. I stopped my pity party, and I decided to hit life head on. The first thing I did was look for a manicure service in Singapore, because my ex had the nerve to call me frumpy looking.

While I will never win a beauty pageant, I knew that I still looked good for my age. I never had a nice hairstyle or manicured nails because he was too insecure about his own self. I did not want to do anything that would lead him to a jealous rage, so I just kept my own style very simple and plain. Those days are over now, and the first thing I wanted was to have sexy nails.

I’m Having a Great Time with My Parents in a New Place

Friday, November 24th, 2017

I moved with my parents to another country when I was just 17. It has been a lot of fun, but I have also worried about what I would do after I graduated from high school while living here. As soon as I graduated, dad told me that I needed to find work, so I became employed by a company that offers regular cleaning services in Singapore to rental companies. It keeps me busy and I can handle the work easily. I really enjoy being able to save most of my money so that I can put it toward my future college degree. My dad is really pleased that I am keeping busy and being proactive about saving for college.

When my parents first told me that we were moving, I was devastated. I had made so many new friends in school, and I really did not want to leave them. I also have a best friend who I have been friends with since elementary school. I wondered if I would ever see her again. My father explained that his job overseas would only be for 3 years. He told me that I was too young to stay back in the US without my them being with me. Both sets of my grandparents have passed away, so staying with them was not possible. Neither one of my parents were comfortable with the thought of me staying with a friend’s parents while my own parents were away.

At some pointed, I resigned myself to the fact that we would be moving. I was excited, but I was also scared because I did not know what teens in Singapore would be like. However, the first week that I went to school there, I made lots of new friends. All the other students are so friendly. Everyone was helpful and knew that I might be scared. I was only there at that school for one year before I graduated.

I Have to Get Some Extra Money

Friday, November 24th, 2017

Of course this was not something I really wanted to do, I would be much happier if I were spending my spare time out with my friends having a good time. However this is about my long term plans and the money that I am going to need to make them happen. So I am working a full time job during the day and at night I am a part time helper in Singapore. I work for this cleaning service and mostly what I do is the hard stuff. The other guy gets started while I am taking things in the building and then I empty all of the trash cans and put them in a big rolling trash can that you dump into the dumpster. It is a poor paying job, but then I am only doing it for extra money. I am trying to get them to give me a lot of hours on the weekend, since that is when I have the time to do it and I will not be so tired getting up in the morning. (more…)
