Music Accessories

There are many new accessories that can help your music so nice to listen, which can help your performance with best results. But some accessories, sometimes it is not easy at all to determine. I mean yeah those are part of your instruments but because they are so techie at all just like this overdrive pro, I am not sure if how that works with your music. But one thing for sure is that it could help you to get the best performance ever. I wonder how could this accessory help with my youngest daughter performance for her violin. Will it help or not?

Summer Swimming Competition 2015

Last Saturday and Sunday was the summer competition of Mj. It supposed to be held on summer but the host keeps on delaying it, the reason why it was just held recently. Mj did not win anything, although almost, as it was only seconds that she was behind. Almost that means we are lacking of training. Mj was always absent lately since I was too busy at work, this is the price when we are working, most often than not we are left behind with our kids activities and even school. I plotted for vacation leave so at least I still get paid if I have to be absent. The result was not bad at all. But I still hoped that she won at least, oh well anyway, this is what we get whenever she won’t concentrate on training. Till next competition instead, I hope she could already.

It was two days competition, so we had to slept in a hotel. I was dread tired because that night after the first day of competition, instead of making up with my friend in the team since recently I don’t go to the pool very often, I slept. I know I needed plenty of sleep and rest. We had dinner at one of the restaurant there. Mj was still so happy mingling with her friends although she did not win to her events. But her hopes are still high that next time she will. DACS is coming and she have to do it.

Ways to Get the Family Involved in Saving for a New York Vacation

Planning a year in advance for your vacation will give you plenty of time to amass a large savings account. As long as everyone in the family does his or her part, 12 months can go by pretty quick. Especially if you have a family goal meter set up in the house somewhere such as on the fridge. New York is a big city, and you want to make sure you get the most out of the experience for yourself and the family.

The time to Travel

Nearly every major destination across the world has peak times where more visitors arrive. In many situations, businesses will hike up prices to get as much as possible during these seasons. If you visit New York during an off-season time, travel expenses and lodging could be cut by a large amount. Discuss the perfect time to travel with your family. This can also give you an idea of the cash you’ll need to visit the Big Apple.

The Perfect Lodging

Allow your family to help you decide on the perfect hotel to stay in while visiting New York. Using Hipmunk’s guide to NYC hotels, you can find great deals fitting the needs of your brood. WiFi access, prime locations, swimming pools and more can be scrutinized among some of the most affordable locations in New York. By letting the family have a say in where everyone stays, even the children can feel like they have a voice. This can strengthen bonds within the family dynamic and enhance the experience overall.

Coupon Clipping Parties

Having a coupon clipping party is a great idea to get the family involved. However, you should take it a step further in order to show the family’s determination to visit New York. Tally up the total of the coupons and immediately put that much money into the savings account after each party. Make a game out of the experience by trying to beat each week’s record savings. This will also help prevent you from spending the money on something else that’s frivolous.

Monthly Utilities

Turn saving money on utilities into a game. Try to see how much water or electricity can be saved. Again, deposit the difference of each month directly into savings immediately. This may require alternatives to entertainment. Why not spend a few evenings playing card or board games at the family table instead of running computers and gaming consoles?

The family can contribute greatly when saving for a vacation to New York City. By getting everyone involved, you turn the experience into a team effort. What can you do to encourage your family to participate when it comes to preparing for travel?

Violin For Her

Just last week, during my pay off, I went to the mall right away after work to look for a violin for my youngest daughter. I went to the mall where I looked for a violin and made a canvass for her, it was not good because when I ask if there are still stocks, the staff said they don’t have already. There’s one violin available but it don’t have a string. So I went to the other mall, they have plenty of stocks but the most affordable one is P 3,015.00 that price is already discounted. I just grabbed it since there is no other choice. I went to Faith school right away to let her see the violin, too bad their music schedule is already done. Anyway, last Friday she was able to use it, I have to hand it over right away to her teacher so it won’t get busted right away. I told him not to give it to Faith, I’m afraid if she will hold it, her classmates will definitely wanted to share it. And it will just be damaged.
