  • What if the last momoen you think about when you die is where you spend eternity? What would yours be?

    Mine would be the day I proposed to my wife. We had just signed our first lease together and I was filming "move in day" I had the ring on the counter. She was so happy to see it and she was so beautiful. That is where I'd want to spend eternity.

  • Will I owe back property taxes?

    My wife and I closed on our new home on 12/06/16. The property value was calculated based only on the un improved lot value of $7785 (this is a new construction in texas).

Come Jan 1 2018, is the bank going to require us to pay back taxes on the home value as of 1/1/17(roughly $6000) or will the mortgage just increase by $500/mo? We are prepared for the worst case scenario, but this is our first home and are curious. Thanks

  • Is there Shame is switching from electrical engineering to electrical engineering technology?

    I'm 30 years old and I'm taking one engineering class a semester while working full time. Classes have me so stressed out that I'm losing sleep and I'm barely passing. I feel shame at the thought of switching to technology but I don't think I can continue engineering at this rate.

I have decided to eliminate soda (currently I only have soda with dinner) and get my caffeine from black coffee. I have svourd my pantry and there arec lot of sugary foods but nothing has trans fat or hydroginated oils. I am going to cut back on pasta and potatoes (a large part of my diet I love Mack and cheese and mashed potatoes) and I will start walking (or some other form of workout) at least 30 min a day. Is there anything else I can do?

    Long story short, my mom is a convicted felon (fraud). Because of that she has found it difficult to find work ( as in, won't apply to the hundreds of leads I have sent her to companies that hire felons as a second chance). So she works as a cleaning lady. My brother fell on hard financial times and moved back in with her with his wife and son. In exchange for rent, he drives her to her cleaning jobs. Problem is they are toxic for each other. They yell and scream at each other and my mother hates my sister in law so she's allways screaming at her to get out... well, they did. My bro took his family and moved to florida Now that my brother is gone, she expects me to drive her to her cleaning job. That's 8 hours of my time gone for her to make $90. I told her that I wasn't able to do that and she lost it. I told her to buy a non owners policy for insurace so she could start renting cars again. She refused and told me to put her on my insurance (not happening, she's a terrible driver and I won't let her spike my rate) . Then she proceeds to tell me that the flip phone i bought her isnt good enough. She wants an i phone. I told her if she wants an i phone, she needs to purchase her own plan (I offered to pay deposit) because I can't afford the added cost) She screams at me that I'm punishing her. For being convicted of a crime she didn't commit (yes she did, but that's another story) and that im a terrible son for not helping her. What do you think?

    My boss assigned me a project to great a flow chart for the current process at work. I created a high-level flowchart and he told me no, I need more detail. So I took a day of pto so i wouldnt have to worry about other job responsibilities and made a lower level flow chart on my own time. he reviewed it and told me to add somethings. Today we had a meeting over the flow chart with my self and three other managers (mine included ) where the other two started chastising me for the chart being too detailed. They wanted a high-level chart. I expected my manager to jump to my defense because he told me to make it more details but he jumped on me with the other two. My question is, should i ignore and go about my job as if nothing happened, have a sit down with my manager or have a sit down with the other two and show them the emails where he told me to make more detailed?
