Choosing a Kitchen Contractor

When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, having a knowledgeable, professional contractor on your side can make all the difference in the world. In addition to construction services, many contractors offer additional services such as kitchen design services. Good contractors will also ensure that you are included in all of the decision making throughout the project to ensure that any changes fit in with your overall project goals. There are three basic steps for finding the right kitchen contractor for your kitchen remodeling project. These include: 

Generate a list of contractors 

To get started, begin to make a list of local contractors. You should stick with local contractors that have a physical presence in your area as this will ensure that the contractor you choose has registered their business with the city in which you live. This gives you recourse in the event something goes wrong. 

Ask your friends or family if they have anyone they would recommend. This will ensure that you have one reference that you can trust. Your list should include at least three or four options. 

Request bids

Next, contact each contractor and ask for a bid. The contractors should come out onsite in order to get more information about the job and every bid should be in writing. In addition, request a copy of the contractor’s proof of insurance and proof of valid business license as well as a list of references. 

Choose Your Contractor

Once all of the bids are in, conduct a background check to ensure that each contractor is in good standing in the community. Contact references, the local business licensing authority and the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been any complaints and what the final resolution was. Then choose a contractor based on price, availability, and professionalism. 

Choosing the right contractor for your kitchen remodeling project will not only ensure that you get the best possible results, but that the project is completed on time and under budget.

Blogging Hiatus?

Thinking about my blog career nowadays, it is quite deteriorating. I am not really into blogging hiatus, I just do not have the luxury of time anymore. When I tried to check the number of posts that I was able to make for the previous years, it is quite a number, way too far from what I have accomplished for this year. 

However, I realized I was not alone after all with this dilemma. In fact, when I checked the blogs of those I followed, they too seems to go through the same thing with me. Nevertheless, I do not want to stop doing this thing. I still want to blog. I am confident that someday, in one way or another, such passion will be reignited and I can be on my way again in expressing all my random thoughts, my opinions and my views in life's perspectives.

Maybe, I just need to collect all my thoughts, exactly the same way that I just did right now.

Where are those memes by the way?

Rekindling Passion

"I saw you once, I doubt if you knew it but somehow I am quite bothered with what I saw. It has nothing to do with your outfit,because the truth was, I barely noticed what you wore that time. I am greatly bothered with your companion. Yes, I am pretty sure he's with you because he was standing next to you with intimacy. Yes, that's right- you're so close to him that time as if you were whispering something that is why you didn't get to notice me. In fact, I am just few steps from you that time anticipating your attention. But both of you just simply walk away, completely ignoring me"... 

Hmmm... here I go again, with all those scripts on my mind. The frustrated writer and her frustrating stories- that's me. I used to do comic strips and short romantic stories during my high school years. But all those passion suddenly vanished. Maybe because I lost some inspirations, or maybe because, I was too preoccupied during my college years. But I truly find it so amazing watching movies whose story lines are all seems too familiar to me. In fact, I can predict some future scenes on prime time movie shows. Oh, well. Maybe I have to rekindle this passion once more so that someday maybe I will be able to do the best scripts of my life.

Planting Seed of Hope

I just realized, I've been teaching for a decade already. It is such a great fulfillment to see some of my past students living a kind of life that they truly deserves, in the same manner, I also felt sorry for those who were not able to make it to their dreams.

Until now, I am still doing the business of meddling with their lives. Just like a concerned mother, I never run out of tested and proven pieces of advice. However, not all of them are receptive enough in heeding because they want to live their life according to what can make them happy. Honestly, I also came to a point of giving up on reminding them, nurturing them because for me, it's just another case of vain effort.

But how can I just neglect them when it is very evident that there is a greater need for teachers who can empathize with them. After all, not all of them are playing deaf to all my reprimands, reminders and warnings. As a matter of fact, there are few who will just approach me unexpectedly to thank me for the gesture of concern when they were still with me. It brings me joy somehow. And these are the kind of students who will then be a living example to others. I use their stories for others to learn.

I am a teacher indeed who must continue to plant the seed of hope even if others will just simply ignore it because I am equally hopeful that within the four corners of the classroom, there is at least one soul who will heed my call and become successful someday.

I'll just wait for them to see me, and perhaps, to thank me that once in their lives, there is this school teacher who spend a minute or two of her time reprimanding them, scolding them and punishing them with tons of activities for them to grow and realized that indeed going to school is an investment for their future and no one should declare total bankruptcy.

One Year Is Over- Wazz Up with Yolanda Victims?

One year is over since the horrific Yolanda killed thousand of lives as well as hope of many Filipinos. As far as I could remember, tons of help came from foreign countries in a form of goods and cash. There are also many NGO's who took the effort for relief operations. However, not all victims were given financial assistance. In fact, many of them were not able to regain from total loss. Has the government helped those in dire need, there will be no rallies that could be seen in the commemoration of the tragedy right now.

I could only hope that the government will be serious enough in answering their needs.

Deep within most of us lies a sincere desire to express our individuality. Individual expression may not be appropriate in certain work or social settings. However, your home is the prefect place to be as individualistic as you desire. Most likely, you've browsed through magazines and seen room designs and furniture that is attractive, but not precisely what you would create for yourself. Sometimes, one piece of furniture can be the statement piece in your home that epitomizes your style. You can learn more about custom furniture pieces at a place such as Adobe Interiors. There's nothing that compares to the pride you feel when you bring a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture into your home. The whole atmosphere of the room becomes more exquisite.

Interior design may not be something you are experienced with. However, when it comes to knowing what you like, no one knows that better than you. When you have the opportunity to work with consultants who can help you design furniture for one room or for your entire house that is as unique as your personality, you can be sure of ending up with a decor that is unlike any other. Those who visit your home will be in awe of the magnificent, individualized creations and designs that you have incorporated into your home. You can enjoy the blissful feeling that comes from knowing that once you enter your home, you are surrounded by items that are a true and accurate reflection of your style.
