Life at Age 55 in the United States

Did you know in the United States when you reach 55 years old, you're consider a senior citizen? Carmina realized being one year to become fifty-five years old she can take advantage of the benefits when you're visiting the United States. Certain stores provide a discount when you shop at their store example in Seafood City Supermarket it is 12% from your purchases on every Tuesday. Ross Dress for Less Store every Tuesday is 10% off your purchase. Basically, you can gain a pension from support from the government to apply for low income when you want to start a life living back in the United States if you wanted too without having an income. Just visiting the United States if your 55 years old has a lot of benefits that some people are not aware of for example the friends I've spoken too. Did you know you can purchase a house that is for the 55 years and up for Retirement and 55+ Communities?  Carmina's friends have been informing when you're 55 years old you can co

Social Media

Ever since I started writing my blog I started spending less time in Facebook. I stopped glancing to see new post that comes out on your screen. The only thing I kept on was my Facebook Messenger when my family or friends would leave me a message. They too hardly go online to check their Facebook. They use Facebook Messenger more often and when I had visited California this year for my niece high school graduation and 18th birthday they call it texting. From that moment I didn't know what they meant. To me I call it chatting. Everyone has their own terms how they say, it.  Living in the Philippines we call it chatting and texting is through our phone called, "SMS" which stand for short message service. Anyway, my family and close friends uses email when we want to get a hold of them. They are not into the Facebook world. They have a Facebook account, but they are not so active. There are family members who don't want a Facebook for personal reasons.

My Way of Eating Healthy

When I was a teen I was the skinny person who always wanted to gain weight. I had high metabolism. Whatever I ate I was still able to loose that weight. I was too active doing aerobic during that time it was very popular during my teen years. I went to night clubs just like an ordinary twenty one year old would do.  There was a time in my life when my Father found out he was high cholesterol. I saw him drinking some sort of medicine that he drank to lower his cholesterol level. He asked, me if I wanted to drink it.  My Father side of the family have obese and that is the scary part when I was growing up.  Even if I couldn't gain the weight in my childhood years. I still didn't want to be like my Father being high cholesterol. I stopped eating chicken skin and started eating healthy. My family thought I was a vegetarian. When we ate out at Carl's Jr. I would remove the hamburger patty and hide it in a paper towel on my lap when they are not looki

Have you've ever got lost in the woods from a hike?

When we want to run away from the city and have peace in our mind. We tend to go visit the nature and hike up and explore in the woods. This is one of my remedying to bring closure and bond with my close friends in California who you haven't seen for a long time. The smell of the woods and fresh air gives you a sense you can fly as the wind gush into your face. Dogs running and giving way where to walk y ou see other people greeting with a smile. I am not a real hiker like my close friends. I can say I am just an average girl who gets tired easily and need a push in the back to keep going. I am a slow pace and can't keep up with my close friends.  There was a time in my life I got lost in the woods. During that time I was with my boyfriend and we had a fight. I went wandering in the woods to cool myself together. You realized you went out of the trail. It was a day I cannot forget until now. I hid this story from my parents when I was young. I couldn't tell th
