The HVAC and apartment need constant maintenance

I recently moved out of my apartment and into my forever home.

I feel bad for the next tenant in that place.

They are moving into a place that needs constant updates and care but doesn’t get any. The landlord of the place refuses to call in a HVAC contractor, plumber or electrician. He just wants to cash checks and for you to leave him alone. That took me a while to learn. Once I realized I was on my own in terms of repair, I just did what I could. I immediately fixed anything little I found so it didn’t turn into a big problem. The HVAC in particular needs constant love and attention. I changed the air filter every single month and vacuumed the inside of it. Thankfully I have a buddy who is a HVAC contractor. I had him replace the refrigerant, lubricate my fan motor belt and muck out my condensate drain anytime he came over to my house. With all that love and care, the HVAC reliably turned on. If I didn’t, the HVAC would immediately stop operating and I would have no form of climate control. The same would be with the dishwasher, stove and dryer. Thos emachines I was constantly taking apart and putting new parts in. Luckily I make good money and I am a handy guy. It was hardly a hardship getting everything fixed up and able to be used. I hope the new tenant can fix things. He should at least find a HVAC dealer to be friends with, he is going to need it.

A fitness class is a great way to meet people

The physical training session has some guy in there and several women I like very much

When I moved to a new area for our job, I knew no one. I didn’t have anyone to eat dinner with, watch movies or to do any fun activities. I was so horribly lonely and work wasn’t a great place for meeting people. I decided to put myself out and figure out a way to meet some people. I couldn’t force myself to go to a bar or club alone. I am not that type of person. I then thought the gym might be the best means of making new friends. I joined a group fitness class with the idea of meeting other people my age. It turned out to be a beneficial experience. I take a hot yoga class three days a week, a spin class one day a week and a physical training session on the weekend. I have different fitness instructors for each session and there are different people in each of them. I have met all sorts of wonderful people and made some terrific friends. The girls from yoga are all around my age and work in an office setting. We are all taking the class during work. It is fun meeting them up during our lunch break and chatting about all sorts of things. My spin class ladies are older than me and have a book club they invited me to join. The physical training session has some guy in there and several women I like very much. I am hopeful of getting asked on a date soon. The fitness classes are not only ideal for meeting new people, but my confidence has greatly increased. I feel more energized, motivated, fit and attractive after getting an hour long sweat in.

Tending to neglect arm workouts

Each day I workout a different area of my body.

  • I used to entirely handle my own fitness routine.

I then realized that I always seemed to neglect arm day. I never seemed to find enough time for a concentrated arm workout. I am quick to add longer cardio rather than weightlifting. I would much prefer to stretch for an hour than life weights for ten minutes. My arms became so underworked that I looked ridiculous. I had created a well-toned stomach, butt and thighs but had these little sticks for arms. Now, I take a few days a week and go to a local health club for my workout. For two of the days, I use the machines. I like to just run on the treadmill, use the elliptical or pedal the stationary bike. That is fine because I spend one day each with a certified fitness expert. I have a semi-private physical training session with a personal trainer on Tuesdays. I usually need to admit to the trainer I haven’t completed a single arm day. Then she tortures me. I complete tons of different arm reps. I utilize the machines, free weights and resistance bands at the gym. My arms become so sore and tired after an hour that it is nearly impossible to shampoo or comb my hair. I try to motivate myself to lift on the other days because I dread how strenuous the hour of personal training is. I would rather have the trainer focus on cardio and make me jump rope instead of lifting weights. My arms are beginning to gain muscle definition. I know that I need to keep up with personal training. I should probably lift another day of the week if I want to see real results.

Gym

Working toward the goal of a left side aerial

My husband and I are planning to try to get pregnant this summer.

  • Before I make that commitment and can no longer be as physical, I have some objectives I hope to achieve.

I prefer doing a gymnastic based workout every day. There is a skill called an aerial cartwheel. It is a basic cartwheel but performed with no hands. I am able to do this maneuver on the right hand side. Completing the skill leading with my bad side is extremely difficult and virtually unheard of. I have decided to achieve both sides of aerial cartwheels before the opportunity runs out. To prepare for such a challenging gymnastic trick, I need to be in peak physical shape. I have been practicing left side cartwheels every single day. I perform cartwheels off a block where I focus on pushing with the foot and getting lots of height. This allows me to forego touching my hands. I complete drills with the leg held up in the air to start and practice whipping my body over. I cartwheel off the knee, from a hop, a run, and all sorts of ways. My body isn’t accustomed to being so left side dominant. I have experienced soreness in new areas such as my right butt cheek, left quad and the left lateral muscle. I am delighted that I am targeting these specific areas. I am hoping to not look lopsided by developing both sides of muscles. I have been debating whether I should start visiting a gym and adding some weightlifting to my routine. I want to tone without bulk. I want to be sure my whole body is supporting my goal.

My regular gym switched locations

I had a regular routine going for a while.

I’d get up extra early, pack a bag and head to the gym.

I would take an hour fitness class led by a certified fitness expert and then shower in the locker room. I’d get ready for work and arrive at the office before rush hour started. Because I started my workday so early, I was able to leave earlier as well. I could beat traffic again and get home at a decent hour. This gave me extra time to clean the house, tackle laundry, cook a healthy meal or even spend time outside before bed. My gym just recently up and moved to the other side of town. The commute is twice as long for me to get there. So I decided to switch to working out at home. Everything is different now. If I work out at home, I end up driving in rush hour and starting my job at a normal time. I lose half of my day by not handling my workout near the office. The solution is to find another gym close to the office. The options for gyms are not goot. I got spoiled at the other locale. I could take a fitness class, indulge in personal training, have a spacious locker room and access all sorts of equipment. There was even an indoor swimming pool and sauna. The other gyms in the city only include a limited number of antiquated machines. None of their classes line up with my schedule and the locker rooms never provide towels. It is not the same level of enjoyment. At this point, I am considering just driving the distance to enjoy the better workout.

Group Physical Training Classes

A champagne bottle heated up in my bag while the furnace ran

I’m the sort of guy who likes to hit the road whenever things are feeling stale in my life.

I do not entirely like to just sit around as well as live the same morning on repeat like it’s Groundhog’s Day.

I much love to get out as well as see some modern sites when things have gotten a bit too mundane! This is a single of the reasons why I found myself at my best friend’s lake house last weekend on an extended visit. I was drastically glad to soak up some moderate air as well as some sun as I travelled across several states. When I reached my best friend’s lake house I anxiously threw my bags on the floor as well as both of us began hanging out… Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that it was going to get rather freezing outside that particular evening. The moderate air of the morning abruptly turned into a brisk 50-degree evening, however my friend’s heating, cooling, as well as air quality control proposal automatically detected the change in climate as well as adjusted the central heating as well as cooling proposal to be more appropriate with the indoor air temperature. This meant the heating proposal started undoubtedly working. Too awful that I had no system the oil furnace was running, pumping out high-quality indoor air, as well as sending the sizzling air flow rate through the ductwork. The hot-air was then emerging through the air vent which was directly below my backpack. Inside of my backpack was a huge bottle of champagne… Which did not love the extra heat, but you can imagine our mutual surprise when the bottle of sparkly booze abruptly exploded in my backpack as well as a cork went shooting around the room. Welp, looks like I’m here as well as ready to party; all both of us needed was to heat things up a bit.

I wasn’t expecting the temperature fluctuation at my friend’s house

I’m the sort of lady who likes to hit the road whenever things are feeling stale in my life; but I do not legitimately appreciate just sitting around and living the same day on repeat as if it’s Groundhog’s Day.

I much like to get out and see some new sites when things have gotten a bit too mundane… This is 1 of the reasons why I found myself at my best friend’s house last weekend on an extended visit.

But when I reached my best friend’s house I anxiously threw my bags on the floor and every one of us began hanging out.

Welp, looks as if I’m here and ready for a celebration, and all every one of us needed was to heat things up a bit.

Renovations mean charging more money for rent

In a trendy Community with eating establishments, bakeries, day spots in addition to Boutique shops, the people I was with in addition to myself have multiple rental properties.

Real Estate in the area is severely overpriced in addition to many apartments being in demand.

The people I was with were in addition to myself own buildings in nice locations. These locations are close to all of the Town amenities. When the people I was with an addition to myself purchased our first building, it was neglected in addition to run down. The exterior paint was peeling in addition to the fact that the roof had multiple leaks from wood rot in addition to disfigure. Instead of replacing the windows, the previous owners had them boarded up. The people I was with an addition to myself had to spend a heap of money for new vinyl siding, gutters, in addition to a new roof. We also added some fire to the garden with grass, potted plants in addition to shrubs. I really need to install drainage pipes in addition to new electrical wiring, but this is a large expense that I will undertake after the next tenant moves out. Although it costs a small luck to renovate all of the apartments, the people I was with an addition to myself can actually charge more for rent. As long as we are in the part of town where property is in demand, then the people I was with an addition to myself will always be able to charge a hefty fee for rent.

The apartment a/c needed some repairs

The person who owns my home doesn’t live around here.

The guy uses a Property Management Service to handle all of the problems with the property.

When I get a problem, I call them up and make a home repair request. Last week, I called the property management repair to tell them that the apartment a/c unit needed to be better maintained. I kept hearing a very weird noise coming from the components and I felt that the indoor air was not as chilly as it should be. I called the property management repair request on Sunday and I left a telephone message. I waited all day for someone to return my calls. On Sunday day, I called again and I left a second telephone message. Saturday I tried to call over again, and Friday I tried to call. Friday day, I stopped at the property management office on my way back home from work. There was a single automobile in the parking lot, even though the front door was locked. I knocked and knocked and not until someone finally answered the front door. I demanded help with the a/c in my home. I told the person that answered the door that I have called them five times or more this week. She apologized over and over again, and she said it was too late to call the a/c repair for that day. She promised they would be at my home first thing in the day the next day. Thankfully, she proved to be fantastic on that promise. The handyman was at my residence before 8am, and the a/c was fixed before lunchtime.

I should have learned more about the property lease

Water started spraying everywhere and I had to run and turn off the water to the sink in order to stop the flow.

As soon as I was 18 years old, I wanted to transport out of my mom and dad’s locale and find an apartment of my own. My friend and best neighbor Tomas was living in his parents basement and he wanted to transport out as well. Me and Tomas started to look for our own apartment so every one of us could share all the expenses, the rent and the utilities.Every one of us found a multiple-kitchen apartment way over on the other side of town. It was a nice locale, even though it was a little small. Both of us had a kitchen, plus an entirely immense and spacious living room area, and bedrooms. Every one of us had to share a single powder room between the multiple of us. My best friend and neighbor and I were ecstatic to sign the lease and moved into the property. Just a handful more weeks after every one of us moved our final piece of furniture to the apartment, Tomas and I had our first apartment problem. I was emptying a box in the powder room and the box fell across the sink and broke the handle off the powder room sink. Water started spraying everywhere and I had to run and turn off the water to the sink in order to stop the flow. I called the landlord to repair our powder room sink and he told myself and others it was my responsibility. In the property lease we signed, I am responsible for all repairs to the apartment. I definitely should have learned about the property lease more carefully. Tomas and I did not have the currency to repair the sink, and every one of us had to spend half of next month’s rent to get the concern repaired.
