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

Valentine's Day

I've never celebrated Valentine's Day in my life. I don't look forward to it since I have never experience it.  My friends always want to have a date on Valentine’s Day and to them it is a really big deal to go out with their boyfriend or spouse on this special day. I see those receiving flowers from someone who does service to deliver flowers to their work and they get all so excited. Sometimes it gives those other people wanting to have what they are experiencing right now. There was one time my mom was telling me her best friend decided to order flowers and have it sent to her home. Her best friend wanted to see what her husband would say when she had received flower other than him. Some people do other things to get attention or to give miss signals to someone else. I've dated before, but never allowed to reach to the point to have a relationship during the holiday. Maybe it is luck for me so I will not look for those days to feel I need

Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop in the Philippines

This was the first time I went to Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop that caters to most of all the food in one restaurant.  Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop actually came from Canada and they have branches here in the Philippines. I had ordered a Tuscan chicken Panini that comes with chicken strips, mozzarella cheese, red onion, tomato with garlic roasted mayo dressing. It was actually good even if the sandwich looked small I was able to get filled up from eating it alone. I was missing apple fritter donut which my brother in-law would always buy in Berkeley, California. In fact the difference is there was a lot of cinnamon in the apple fritter you couldn't really take the apple inside it. Not bad it was able to take out my cravings out from the apple fritter was very moist and soft. 

Age 50

What happens when you are at the age of 50 and you need to look for a job? You left your old employer not realizing what a big mistake you made. I know a lot of friends who have encounter this mistake they have made in their lives. They had quit their employer where they have worked over ten years and they decided to quit because they felt they we’re having a difficult time. I was telling my co-workers that when you get older people will not hire you because for one thing they will hire the younger ones who are well educated and the ones who have experiences. We have a lot of employees who left for one year and came back. They came back because they knew they had no source of education back ground it was harder for them to get a job. We had hired them back, but not from the income they left. They had to start from the beginning as how they had started when they use to work. They know how the real world is when you are outside and you need to get a source of inco
