Thinking About Living in the Upper Peninsula

I have started to think about how hard it would be to move part time up to this little cottage that my family owns in the Upper Peninsula. Obviously it is a real problem to live up in that part of the state during the Winter. I am not planning on trying that, although it has always been a problem to take care of this place during the snowy months. You can not leave it there unattended the entire Winter, or else you will get the roof caved in by the weight of snow. Hughesnet in Michigan is probably the only way to get the internet up there, which is going to be less than ideal. Satellite internet is quite expensive to begin with and it is just not that good in comparison to the other options. Continue reading

Started to Look for a New Apartment

I do not think that I can stand very much more from the other people at the complex where I have been living for the past six months. My lease is almost up, so I have began to look for nice and inexpensive apartments for rent in Buffalo Grove IL. That is not easy to find and I thought that I had done really well when I found this place.

Right now I can pop out of bed, jump in the shower, grab something to eat and get to work in around a half an hour. Continue reading

This also means that I need to save money and be careful about which company I get access from. I found some interesting deals at when I was trying to research the best company to go with.

The last company that I was with signed me with a one year contract. As soon as the 12 months was up, they dramatically raised the price. I was stunned. When I called to ask about the increase, they said that I was welcome to sign another contract for yet another year, and if so, they would then discount the price back down a little. I felt like I was in between a rock and a hard place, so I went ahead and did it. However, the discount they gave me was not as much as I hoped that it would be. Then, my service began to have problems. Continue reading
