What I’m looking for

Looking to connect with fellow musicans, local or non local. Would be great if you’re in Canada, or the United States since it makes it easier to meet. I currently live in Windsor, Connecticut.

People Want to Know Who Has the Cheapest Auto Insurance

Getting the Cheapest Auto Insurance

I don’t know about everyone else, but myself and a few of my friends have pondered this topic for a few months now and it’s getting to be a bit outlandish. I think it makes absolutely no sense to remain with an insurance company that doesn’t reward a good driving record. We want to know who has the cheapest auto insurance. ( Which I found here by the way: http://www.whohasthecheapestautoinsurance.com/) These insurance companies are making it almost impossible to remain loyal to them because they do nothing to reward customers when they go years without getting tickets or into an accident.

My family and I travel a lot during the summer and have done so for the past fifteen years. None of us have received tickets or been involved in any accidents, but our rates steady increase. We are currently in search of cheaper coverage and I am sure we will find something that costs less than that we have now. In fact, I may consider purchasing a new vehicle if the decrease in the insurance is substantial. Everyone I talk to tells me about their great insurance rates and I want to reap the same benefits. I was considering purchasing a boat because I have wanted one for a while. This is another reason that it is important to save on insurance cost if we can do so.

I really don’t understand the failure to offer rewards for safe driving. Every day on the highway, I see people getting ticketed and accidents happen all around me. Although I’m aware that it could easily happen to me or a member of my family, at this point it hasn’t and I would like to receive a discount for being one of the good drivers out there. I know how difficult it is to have teenagers who drive your cars but we have young adults that have been on our policy for more than seven years. I expect they will remain on the policy until they marry or start families of their own. Until then, we want to be rewarded for our good driving habits.

Worst Things To Finance With a Loan

Was talking to my old roommate yesterday and remembered this funny story. Decided to share it 🙂

When I was at university, I had a roommate who was, apparently, allergic to money. Upon receiving his first student loan instalment of the year he spontaneously booked a cruise from New York down to Mexico. We lived in London, England. He had no plans to go to New York.

Then the next instalment arrived and he immediately blew hundreds of pounds on an ‘inflatable hot tub’. And yes that is essentially one of those kids pools you have in the garden in summer. That he paid to get delivered from China. And yes, he could have just gone to almost any other store and bought one for 10% of the price.

It arrived, already with a puncture, he tried to fill it up in the kitchen and flooded the entire apartment (and the one below it when the water escaped through their ceiling).

But this made me wonder what other crazy purchases have made people think ‘oh I must take out a loan so I can afford that, immediately’.

Here are the top 3 worst things people were willing to admit to spending their loans on. Turns out not many people are willing to admit their dumb spending habits.

1. One guy spent all of his loan money on McDonald’s happy meals after becoming addicted to collecting happy meal ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ toys. Cool.

2. Another guy with literally no income at all applied for a loan to pay for a cruise. Who knew cruises were so popular amongst the financially unstable?

3. On girl even went as far as to apply for, get accepted into, and enrol at a university she had no intention of attending just to get her hands on the loan money to pay for a boob job. To be honest I’m actually quite impressed with the thought that went into this strategy. It would definitely be cheaper than heading to one of the title loan companies near me to risk my car.

Good Car Insurance – My Embarrassing Reason to Buy

Debated weather or not I should share this on my blog, and decided it’s for the best that I do!

I’m no stranger to embarrassing moments. In fact, it’s the main reason I refused to join my friends on one of those silent meditation retreat things in India. I can think of nothing worse than sitting in a room with only my own thoughts for days on end. I’d hit myself over the head with a rock immediately, rather than allow my brain to bombard me with every even slightly humiliating thing I’ve done in my lifetime.

I may not want to think about them for days on end, but I do believe that you can learn from these bouts of embarrassment. And just one of the things I have learned is the value of decent car insurance.

About a year ago, I was back home for a few months looking to find a job to replenish my bank account. I scored an interview at a company I really wanted to work at. Turned up surprisingly on time. The interview went pretty well. I strolled out of the building feeling positive. And got into my car, which was parked in the car park right outside the front entrance.

I then proceeded to, very loudly and confidently, reverse directly into the offices I had just been interviewed at. At full force. And in the direct eye line of a large percentage of the company staff, including the woman that had just interviewed me. Excellent.

This scores above average on my list of embarrassing moments. Yet it taught me an important lesson. Get decent car insurance. I already had it, out of luck. But it would have been much more difficult to laugh off my embarrassment had I not.

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering. Despite leaving a lasting impression. I didn’t get the job.
