I got up here four days ago and it was lucky for me that I had a friend who was already up here. In fact he told me about the job opening and told his supervisor that I was a great guy. He had his own motive, but it is certainly not one that harmed me in the least. His lease was up and he wanted to get a two bedroom Silver Spring apartments to split with another person. It is a really simple concept. You get a one bedroom place up here and it is going to be really expensive, depending on the area and the niceness of the place. However if the place costs 800 dollars for a one bedroom place, the same place is going to have two bedroom apartments for about a hundred and twenty dollars more. The math is really simple. You split that two ways and you end up paying something like sixty percent as much as you were. That gives you another three hundred and some dollars that you can spend any way that you like.

Of course I have roomed with the guy before, when we were in college at the University of Richmond. He is the sort of guy who likes to party, but only in a reasonable way. He likes girls and they like him back, which is great with me since he is willing to get the girl to set me up with one of her friends. That often does not work out, but I lose rather little in the process and at least it is not boring. At any rate this is a big change for me and I am really excited about it. The big thing is that you have all sorts of opportunity to advance here.

I don’t know about most people, but for the last year or so, I have done almost all of my shopping on the internet. I just find it to be much more convenient than buying things in the store. Of course, I still get my groceries in the store, but maybe one day I will buy them online as well. Anyway, it has occurred to me that I could be doing a better job at finding good prices when I buy things online and I need to compare prices online shopping before purchasing items, in order to make sure that I am getting the best deal that is out there.

Of course, in order to manually find the best deal on a product, when you are shopping online, you often have to manually navigate to all of the sites that sell the item, and compare the price that way. That can take a lot of time, and it is probably why I have not thoroughly searched for good prices on items before buying them in the past. But if I were able to find one site that would list all of the prices for things when I am shopping, then that would be ideal. What I mean is that I am trying to find some sort of price comparison site, that searches all of the sellers of an item to find the best price.

I am pretty confident that there are sites that do this sort of thing, I just have not used one before and I do not know why i did not think of this sooner. It is definitely a good idea, and I probably could have saved a lot of money if I had been using one all along. Oh well, I can’t go back and change that now.
