I have been living in my apartment for over 6 months now and I decided to finally buy an upright full size vacuum. Don’t get me wrong, I love Agador Spartacus (my iRobot Roomba), he does exactly what they say it should do — but it is true, they say it does not replace an […]

Surprise, I’m having surgery! Becuase my insurance ends at the end of April (maybe? it might not end for another year now with the new Obama Care changes), I have been going to the doctors to get things checked out. Things I have been ignoring — I know, that’s bad. Turns out that when I […]

As you know, I have been investing in the stock market. Nothing big, just 1 or 2 stocks here and there. Yesterday I bought 2 stocks in Trinity Industries, Inc. (Symbol: TRN). It was completely on a whim. The only reason was because it is a Dallas based company and I see the headquarters building […]

If you read my previous blogs, you know I have a few New Year’s resolutions. Well, you’ll be happy to know I am working on all of them. I even got a chance to use one stone for two birds (make a Dallas friend/workout). The other week I made an acquaintance that has had a […]

I knew how to bring in 2010 right — asleep. Yes, I slept through New Years! Here is the story. After work I went to the bank, Target, grocery store, and then home. At home I watched some TV and ate dinner with a glass of sparkling wine around 8pm (it was a special day, […]

The week before Christmas was miserable for me. Let me explain. I have now realized that almost 90% of your christmas spirit comes from decorations and friends/family — all things I did not have around me. Because I am newly on my own, I don’t have any Christmas decorations — in fact, the only thing […]

My studio friend Briana got a job near Garland Texas (next to Dallas) so we have been hanging out. Because it is getting cold, I have been wearing all the clothing I bought in Germany to stay warm — makes me felt like I am back in Germany. It really felt like it when Briana, […]

My mom came up to Dallas around noon. She took me to a restaurant on a 27 floor that overlooked Downtown Dallas. It was a four-course meal with complimentary bottomless mimosas. Absolutely fantastic. After, we drove around Dallas and I showed her some of the residences I am working on at work. Then we went […]

Its been a warm summer all the way up to this weekend. Then, just as it does in Texas, winter hit on Monday. We dropped our nice autumn 75s (25 C) weather to the 50s (12 C) — overnight. Because it got so cold, I stopped off at my apartment’s club house to get some […]
