When I decided to apply to Edinburgh University, I made sure that I did all of my homework on not only learning about the university but about the area as well. I did not want to get accepted to the university only to find out that I would not be able to afford to live in the city too. I already knew that I would be completely happy with the university, so I focused on learning about the Edinburgh University flats that are available to international students like myself. It actually did not take me too long to find the information that I needed because of a website that I had found.
Competing against the other racehorse trainers in my area is no joke. These guys get really competitive, and I guess you have to be if you want to have any chance at wining. When I first became a horse racer, I was what people would consider a green horn. I knew next to nothing about horses or racing, and the other trainers really let me have it. Part of it was hazing to make me tougher, while the other part of it was seeing if I had what it took to compete with them. I wasn’t going to give up so easily like some of the other people.
Each day that I came to train with my horse, I put all of my effort into it. The horse and I practiced to make each other stronger.
I bought a home for cheap in New Jersey to live in. The home was what people in the know call a fixer upper, because it needed a lot of repairs to make it presentable. The plumbing was in desperate need of work, there were holes in the wall, and the rooms needed painting. I’m not skilled in anything other than putting together than furniture from the store, so I had to hire a plumber and painter in Morris County NJ. I was going to hire someone to repair the holes, but I actually figured out how to do that by watching a television show.
The plumber had to put a new hot water heater in, install some new pipes, and add new faucets to the sinks.
I may not make a lot of money, but I save when I can so that I can try to keep things updated in and around my home. Just recently, I was looking for some shower doors in Somerset County NJ to make some changes to my bathroom, and found a business that sells them a great price. It felt really good to be able to have the change made in that particular room. I have always found changes to be really nice for my overall morale about my surroundings.
The house I live in is about 75 years old, and much of it looks that way. I am not talking about in a good way either. It has been dreary and drab for so many years.
