January 2019

Not much happened this month. Had a holiday dinner, went to a doctor’s appointment, and mailed off 4 applications for a new apartment. The reason for this, is I will likely have to have surgery, in the future, and the current place does not support a wheelchair.

Also had a few emails, and someone I know communicated with me for a little while on Hangouts (Google’s IM Service). One thing to note is I do not like the new backend for WordPress. It feels too simplified with no real control.

December 2018

This month was a little busier than usual. The first week, I went to the post office to acquire a PO Box. I also sent some funds to a PA Able account for my future goals. In addition, I went to get cleats on my shoes, and turned in papers for Section-8.

In the second week, I went to the post office to get no mail, and went to the bank to make a deposit. I also went to the grocery store to get some groceries.

November 2018

This month has been much like any other month. I regularly take Malak for a walk except for days with rain, and snow. The TV is working as expected. I usually watch the news, and a few TV shows after they air. I also had some unproductive conversations with my brother. To respect his privacy, that is all I will say about that. Last, I opened a PA Able account which I will be using to save for moving in the future.

October 2018

Not much happened with most of the activity being in the first week. During this time, I had a doctor’s appointment, and I purchased a TV so I can watch the news. This TV has Roku which allowed me to link my Hulu, and Netflix accounts so I don’t have to use the PC to watch video content.

The second week, my food assistance benefits came in. I went to the grocery store to get food for the month. The third week, I went to PAT (Public Transit) Customer Service and replaced my card. No other activity happened this month worth noting. Continue reading October 2018

September 2018

A little bit happened this month. I had a couple of doctor appointments, and a couple of times – had to run errands. Most days, I got to walk Malak, and managed to pay bills a couple of days early because of when the first fell. This month was also spent in managing my music through iTunes.

First, as for the walks with Malak. I had to adjust where I walk him due to increasing pain with long walks. I won’t go into detail of the streets as I like my privacy. Once, I acme across a former friend of my brother’s. We caught up on what was going on for about 30 minutes. I explained that he didn’t see me much because of where he lives being too far for me to walk Malak. Speaking of my brother, he called me for a few minutes and wanted to know some details about security cameras. I don’t know much of them, but I gave him the best answer I can.

August 2018

Not much happened. There were no appointments, or events in the first week. Did some website management during this period to keep everything up to date. As usual, I paid my bills and taken care of my expenses with exception of food. And last during the first week, I closed my AMEX account. The reasons of this was I wasn’t using the card because available credit and interest rates were to my liking. My best card is my Capital One card with $2750 at 16%.

The second week was much like the first week. I did have to get groceries. I also watched some shows on Netflix. In addition, I had to go to the bank to deposit and transfer money to my primary checking account. An acquaintance asked me for dinner a couple of times. While I don’t feel she is in the best position to feed other people, it wouldn’t have been worth arguing with her about it. Also, had to replace my media player. This of course cost money, but I had it to spend, so that didn’t hit me too hard. Continue reading August 2018

March 2018

The first week was pretty quiet. I aided someone that needed help with something, and again in the second week. I also managed to add funds to my savings account which is getting closer to my target goal. I also acquired a new domain which I am working on finding something to do with it.

In the third week, I had two appointments. One was with the eye doctor, and the other was with my pain psychologist. While speaking with her, she enlightened me to something that after careful consideration – forced me to reconsider my plans. This will likely force me to make changes with what I will want to do, and force me to adjust my plans.

February 2018

Not much has happened this month. My birthday was in the first week as well as a doctor’s appointment. A friend of mine insisted on taking me out for my birthday, but otherwise – it was much like any other day.As for the appointment, all is well and went through as expected.

The second week, I had another appointment which I went to without issue. On the second week, I also had to wait on UPS to deliver a package from Amazon. Nothing too special, just recycling bags. There were a couple of warm days (considering it is Winter) which allowed me to get Malak out for a walk. Continue reading February 2018

January 2018

The first week of the month was pretty conventional. I managed to pay off my phone which is good. This means I only have my personal loan to pay off. I am expecting to have that paid off in April of 2018. I also did laundry which needed to be done. In addition, I was referred to Mon Valley Initiative for assistance in buying a house. I sent the referred to counselor an email, but as for the first week, I have yet to hear from him. Continue reading January 2018

November 2017

Little happened this month. I saw my Pain Psychologist, and my anesthesiologist in the second week of the month. I also got Internet Essentials from Comcast. It was disappointing that I couldn’t use my own modem and router, but such is life. I did some changes in how people reach me. I will be phasing out my “home” phone line and just relying on a single number. I have been able to solve the time calling rules that were in place.

Also took Malak to the vet. He had some wounds on him under his chin. I cleaned the area and went to make sure nothing bad happened. It seems as if all (buy my pocket) is fine. Nothing else happened. December will be more active.

Thanksgiving was a bit of effort. I helped someone with their dinner. Malak got to eat some turkey skins. He also finished his medication treatments. The third and fourth week however otherwise has been relatively quiet. On some good news, I managed to almost make my savings goal. I should be finished in the first week of December.
