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

Carmina's Evaluation Bob Cut Hair vs. Long Hair

  Carmina's comparison based from having a bob hair cut and long hair is something I realize on my own. Bob Hairstyle Comparison : Having bob hairstyle half of your life you we’re so use to just keeping the same type of cut every time you have decided to have a trim. I would have my neck shaved every time I had a haircut. I was told my hairline is long on my neck. After taking a shower I would put argan oil before blow dries it after 15 minutes. The only difference the curls on the ends would stick out if I didn't blow dry right away. I would need to use a blow dryer and hair strengthener iron to maintain my hair. I would wear a barrette on my hair in order my hair not going to my face when I would eat my meals. Or I would put cream gel on my hair just to keep my hair off my face. Long Hair Comparison : There we’re times of my life I wanted to grow out my hair for a peak moment when I wanted to change my hairstyle but always return back into the same bob cut over

Job at 50 Years and Up

Job at 50 Years and Up To the factor age 50 years old is consider as a senior citizen in some countries example the Philippines. I know the fact in the United States when I was working there was no problem to get a job in the age of 50 and up. Most people at that age go toward working for a department store into sales associates, cashier and inside the fitting room. Or there are people who work inside doing clerical work in a office of some sort. Did you know when you're age 50 in the Philippines it is the opposite? It is harder to get a job especially if you're experience most companies would prefer to hire people age in the 30's that are capable to catch up and learn right away. I guess I never really had to think of that because there was always a job handed to me from family members and friends. I do remember when I was younger in the California when I was applying for a job the first time how it was during an interview process was always an introduction who you we'

Have you've ever encountered a friend you've emailed or try to get a hold of them?  You reach a dead end you hear nothing from them and you've become curious what ever happened between you and them.

Did you ever think someone like Carmina can lose a lot of friends just want you decided to do with your life? Life in the pandemic you realize a lot of factors in your surrounding how friends you have known a long time tend to drift away from you. You have other friends who tend to hibernate and reconnect from you once they are preparing to communicate. You are expe
