I’m back in Delaware for a couple if weeks until it is T-Minus pack and move back to Cali.
The days are going by faster than I can grab and it seems like when you want to treasure moments with those you love the most, they slip faster than you can imprint in your mind.
It comforts me to know I will be back shortly for visits, birthdays and Holidays that will quickly arrive.
On the flip side of the coin, my new adventure, new path, chapter is eagerly awaiting for me with crisp, fresh, clean pages as I readily dip my pen in ink to begin my calligraphy.
From the East to the West I’ll be heading back to where it all began and where I used to call

“Home”

Google Voice

Google Voice

A friend of mine really had me thinking some time ago about Google Voice. I remember hearing the rumors and seeing the clips of Google Voice from my Gmail inbox, but didn’t really pay note to it since I was happy with my voicemail I already had. And then it happened. My content little answering application from the free Android apps decided to ‘charge’ a fee for the service. Ugh! Not only that, it started to have ‘glitches’ and like a friend who moved away, it began to forget about me. It started not to notify me of voicemails or cut off in the middle of the callers attempt to leave a message. I have to admit, I became disappointed in my little app I had grown so fond of.

During a visit to my friends house, the subject of ‘voicemail’ came up again. My friend’s sister needed a new number to avoid a somewhat obsessive/mental ex but 1) there’s a fee to pay for the phone number change 2) still needed the current number for expecting incoming calls. Solution, Google Voice. It was perfect and also my cue as well to chime in on the opportunity to also create my account.
It was easy. Not too complicated and easy to follow steps. One thing I love about Google – It’s simple and understandable πŸ™‚
So whats the big deal?
1) Google Voice is a FREE voicemail client
2) It’ll text you as well as send an email of voicemail notification
3) You can create a number of your choice (if available) which is awesome for someone like me since I freelance
4) You can keep the lowest phone plan and utilize Google Voice to make your calls, which again….are FREE
and 5) You can personalize your voicemail(s) for certain calls.

I liked this one too

Need I say more?
I’ve been using Google Voice ever since. Not only have I been able to save on my minutes, have a professional number AND filter my phone calls, the best part is I don’t miss my voicemails anymore…now if I can just get a new phone, lol πŸ™‚
Who said there’s nothing in life that’s for FREE….Love, Peace and Hairgrease πŸ˜‰

what I do

 

So the move to Tampa dust has finally settled. I’m loving my new place and adjusting to my new RL. I recently picked up a second job in Downtown St. Petersburg for a real estate company Getaway Homes as a Graphic Designer. I take it day by day and hope to catch up on some bills with the extra cash flow. Tip percentage has become minimal is not close to nothing so I’ve been eating a lot of Top Ramen and salads with potatoes.

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on my “social networking” with the tools that keep me connected to friends, family and clients. wow, that just sounded like a sponsored plug. But I have and I’ve been having fun with it.

I’ve been using 12 seconds.tv. This site allows you to upload quick 12 second vids via webcam or phone. They have “Challenges” with topics and you can 12 sec your thoughts. Or you can just 12 sec what ever you want. Some of them are funny.

Of course, there’s the Twitter. I’ve always liked this concept although there are more people who are beginning to hate it. I think this network tool can be misunderstood. But once you understand it…it’s a gold min!

Facebook is one of my favorites. They are constantly updating and some of these updates are turning me off to this network tool and pushing me more to others (e.g. 12 seconds, twitter, dailybooth) but its still is an awesome site

and lastly on my daily Social Networking updating list, there is DailyBooth. I love this! You take a photo everyday with a blog/log. I know this will go viral when more people discover it, but until then, its like my Twitter before everyone tweeted.

Well, I’m ready to hit the hay and catch some z’s. So GoodNite and sleep well πŸ™‚
