Life Keeps Getting In The Way

Hey guys (:
I haven’t been blogging.. or online, really for a few months.
I got a job as a hairdresser! For about 2 weeks… Until I saw an offer for another- an office job, yes, but I’ve realized it’s much more rewarding for me.
I had the qualifications so I applied and got the job. I hope to work my way up!

But now I have some weekends free, despite the fact I’m drained most weekdays and want to spend free time with my boyfriend (see below). So I’m trying to earn spare cash here and there… I’m trying to start saving up.

Therefore I’m working on a site called SwatCash where you get paid for completing offers.
Also, you can earn SC and redeem them for prizes and you can play games to earn more SC!

I also checked some of my favourite PTC’s to find $8 in my Adstab balance and $12.83 in my Fox Cash balance. The cashout for both is $10.00 but I have to click every link for 20 more days because on Adstab I need $2 more and on FoxCash they’ve made a new rule that members must click 250 links before they cashout and most of my earnings come from referrals…

I’m gonna give Ximmy a go, too. They pay you to write comments about your favourite sites. Then there is my Triond, which pays me when people look at my articles!

With romantic issues– well the guy Mat I met in May is still the one (: Since our kinda romantic meet-up we’ve been going strong and today is like our two month anniversary or something <33

He persuaded me to go for a more challenging job and I’m so glad he did.

Love, Emma xx

I’ve found a new site called EntreCard which lets others visit my blog and “drop” so they earn credits… this basically shows they’ve visited. With credits you can buy a space on mine or others blogs.

Anyway, it’s a really neat system…

I’m sorry I haven’t posted for a while, I was so busy with my birthday and that =(

Basically, it was my birthday on Wednesday and celebrations, and leaving parties got in the way!

Today was also my first “trial day” at my new job (= It was great fun, if not hard work. It’s shocking how badly some people look after their hair! Anyway… I’mma try stick it out. I need a stable job and this is something I want to do! It’s really like a dream come true to me!

Hopefully I can move out of my parents place by the summer… But who knows if I can afford a holiday…. I may not even get this job =(

My parents gave me a great sum of money for a flat deposit, so that’s in the bank, and I’m just over the moon that things are on the right track!

I’ve also been offered my first post with blogsvertise! *happy dance*

Buying a Flat/Apartment

Filed under: Articles,Flat-Hunting — by citrusemma @ 5:26 pm
Tags: , , ,

Since I’ve been flat-hunting recently, I thought I’d give you a mini-guide on how to pick an ideal flat or apartment.

Before you set out, make sure you have a list of things you do and don’t want. Decide what things the flat MUST have, what it CAN’T have, what it SHOULD have, and what it SHOULDN’T have. For example, you might say that having a garden is a must, but a nice view out the window is only a nice benefit.

– Don’t view flats by yourself, you might be pressured into buying something you don’t want or signing something

– Take notes, so you can compare after you’ve seen all the prospective flats. If you’re allowed, take photos.

– Check that windows shut & lock properly, that hot and cold water runs properly

– If the flat is furnished, make sure you ask how much of it is included in the price- you might find out too late that there is no bed for you too sleep in!

– Look for bad finishes, open cables etc.

– Take in details like the surroundings. It might be obvious, but if you live next to a railway, you might have trouble sleeping.

– Remember, there are certain things that CAN be fixed. The room’s bright pink? You can certainly fix that.

– Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Don’t be rude, but don’t put off asking vital questions. Are the windows double glazed? etc.

Today I came across a site called contest blogger. It is a free forum where members can promote contests on their blogs or sites- and there were some great prizes! I’ll be entering atleast a few, that’s for sure.

Contests are also a great way to get people to subscribe to your blog, and interest visitors- I’ll be holding a giveaway/contest as soon as I have the cash.

Anyway, be sure to check Contest Blogger out, because you could win $$$$ or prizes! Plus, you can promote your own contests there and get traffic to your site!

I’ve been looking for flats

I’ve been looking for flats online (=

My parents said they’ll be giving me money to get a deposit on a decent place! 😮 I’m over the moon! (: So, I’ve been doing a bit of research online and seeing what sort of place I can afford…

*yawn* I’m really tired, and I’ve been busy… finishing off stuff for university, gathering my stuff together, planning to move, planning for my job training, checking out other opportunities, looking at houses.

Blehhh… I’ve got a headache coming on!

I’ve found a great new site called Ximmy!

What does it do? Well, you can review sites for 10 points each, or add links for 1 point each. At 1000 points, you can be paid $10. If you reach payout before June, you’ll be paid an extra $20, via paypal!

You can easily review 10-20 sites a day- it’ll only take you half an hour to earn 100 points (=

So… if you review 20 sites a day, and submit links… 210 points

If you do that for 10 days, you’ll earn 2100 points…

So, you’ll earn $21! But that’s not all! With the $20 bonus, you’d earn $41 in 10 days for hardly any work!

How do you join?

Just click the banner below (=

Exams, exams…

Don’t you just hate ’em? So, why is the title of this post so cheerful when I’m talking about exams?

A hairdressing salon has replied to me! (= I’ll be doing a trial week in two weeks time, and then after that I will hopefully get to work there full time…

In other good news, it’s my birthday in… 7 days! Hmm… I wonder how I’ll celebrate it?
