Improving your self Document Transcript

  • 1. DIRECTIONS FOR IMPROVING YOUR LIFE BY:THOMAS H.HOPKINS FORWARD This is a basic work book to aid you in the action of planning your future.The ideas in this book may not apply to all of your needs but has been prepaired to assist you to lay the fundimental ground work for you to achieve your goals. "Man's goings are of the lord;how can a man understand his own way?" No one knows what lies ahead but God.Tomorrow you could win the lottery or you could get attacked by a terrorist.You could be praised by the masses or lampooned into shame.This book is only a refrence guide to help you where you may need it.If it helps you then I am proud ,if it dosn't then let it be and have faith in the way that is set before you.You may not need this book.If that is the case than I congradulate you and wish you the best of luck and recomend that you say a quick thank you prayer.
  • 2. DIRECTIONS FOR IMPROVEING YOUR LIFE First I would like to start off by motivating your self confidence.What I would like you to do is to think about all of the things that have ever gone wrong in your life.Think about all of the failures,all of the disapointments,all of the regreates,all of the sadness and misfortunes and dissapointments.If you would like to write them down. Now what have you learned from all of the trials and tribulations that you had gone through in your life? Did you die?If you have then please accept my deepest condolences and gratuity for reading this book. If you have not died however in time eventually you will. For the remainder of the time you have left here I hope that your life is enjoyable and satisfying. Now write down all of the things you are good at.It might not all come to you right away so just write down what you can think of off of the top of your head and add anything else you can think of later. Now write down all of the things you have succeded at in life include as much as you can think of off of the top of your head and make shure to add all of the things you have learned from your failures as well as all of the things you are good at. Fantastic! Now your stepping in the right direction.Alright next write down all of the things you have.Include clothing shoes socks,books,furneture and anything that you think might be of value to you or to someone else.Even if the list is short you can always add to it later. Now write down the names of all of your friends.Even if the list is short you can always add to it later. Write down the top ten things that you want for yourself in your life. Now think of how you can get those things.
  • 3. Two important skills you should develope is the ability to plan ahead on goals you can fallow through with and the ability change your plan without a moments notice. Not every project or task is going to come out the way you initially planned it to and sometimes in the middle of the project you start you may find that it isn't that important for you to do right away.Do it when you've got your heart in it and you'll do a better job. There's only 24 hours in a day and on the average you sleep 8-12 hours and work 4-12 hours a day.Then there's the commute to work and back & the time it takes to get ready for work and changed for bed.At the end of the day that dosn't leave you with much time or energy to do very much of anything. Fallow the step by step guide to help you develope the best plan for your individual needs. If things are going wrong don't take it out on the baby Jesus. Remember that the direction you are headed is most likely where you'll end up. How fast you get there is up to you. Just like driving a car you control the gas and the breaks and the direction.The perpose of this book is to give you a very basic road map.The rest is up to you! Also remember that even if you don't have much right now your wealth will accumulate over time so don't get discouraged if things aren't going your way right now and just keep trying.If things don't pan out in one direction just make a new plan and take it into a different direction.Your the driver! Ask yourself this question:Am I joy rideing or am I speeding?It isn't good to have bad driving habbits on the road of life or on any road for that matter. You control the wheel!Don't drive like an ass hole, keep your vehicle well maintained,fallow the rules of the road and watch out for other drivers! For the homeless For the homeless here's the plan Find the fallowing resources and use them
  • 4. shelter First write down the names of all of the people you know that would let you crash at their house.Cross out the names of anyone that would be physicaly or emotionaly abuseive.Cross out the names of any one that would cause any legal problems or ask you to commit crimes in return for the favor.Cross out the names of anyone that would also be known by someone who is a potential threat to you.Now call the remaining numbers on the list and explain your situation. If no one you know can help you then call any of the local homeless shelters and explain your situation. If someone has hurt you call 911 If you have a drug or drinking problem call 911 and ask if they can take you to a rehabilitation center. If no beds are avalible at the homeless shelter then you'll have to get creative.Look around for 24 hour resteraunts bus stops,truck stops or anywhere that would be warm and out of the elements. Now get some rest! food Now get something to eat.Pick the way that best suits your needs. Many places frown on people begging for money so be careful about doing that.There's nothing wrong with it and it's not a sin but in many places it's ilegal.That's on their soul not yours. Another coures of action is to dig food out of the trash. Be careful about that too. Aside from the germs and bacteria there's also the posibility that poisoniouse chemicals such as pesticides are in the trash can as well. If you decide to get food out of the trash take it from the top of the can or even better sit in the resteraunt and wait until someone gets up and throws the food in the trash then grab that. You can also grab the food that people leave behind on the tables (leave the tip for the waitress alone though). You could also ask the resteraunt manager if you could may be mop the floor or do the dishes for food then explain your situation. Churches and non for profit organizations also sometimes
  • 5. help homless people with food Homeless shelters also serve food to the homeless Another idea is to make a sign out of a cardboad box that says "will work for food"and stand along the side of the highway with it.Make shure it's big enough for people to read it. Many stores and resteraunts have free samples of food as well as free condoments like ketchup and saltines and creamers that with a little enginuity can be made into tomato soup or a stew. If you goto the department of family services and tell them that you need emergency assistance with food they might be able to "exbidite your case"and your food stamp card will be active within one week of filing your aplication. for the long term it's worth the wait so give it a shot. hygene Now that your well rested and have some food in your stomach you should take care of your hygene so that you can find a job. Public restrooms are a good place to clean up and change your clothing Wet 2 paper towels and put a little bit of soap in one of them. Go into the toilet stall and lock the door.First use the soap towel and wash your genitals and rectum.Then use the other towel to clean away any remaining soap. Now wet 2 paper towels and put a little bit of soap in one of them again then go into the toilet stall and lock the door.First use the soap towel and wash your feet and between your toes.Then use the other towel to clean away any remaining soap.Be shure to dry your feet well. Repeat the same process for your armpits Now wash your face and neck at the sink and wash your arms up to the armpits but not the armpits themselves. Now while your in the rest room go back into the toilet stall if you have a change of clothes and change there. (for future refrence if you don't have a change of clothes use the list of places below to help you in your serch.) clothing Churches and homeless shelters give away clothing if your not too perticular about it.Non for profit organizations that have thrift shops sometimes give away clothing voutures.
  • 6. Sometimes people throw away clothing at the laundromat or leave it behind and are up for grabs in the lost and found box. Hospitals also have lost and found boxes and might have a pair of gloves or a winter hat for you. Behind apartment buildings in the dumpsters you might find clothing. Along the side of the highway you might find shirts,ball caps,gloves and as strange as it sounds you could also find a pair of jeans here and there. In the wooded arieas and camp grounds and in parks,near lakes and along the river banks you could find clothing. In residential neighborhoods like the suburbs you could find clothing in the trash cans. Behind thrift stores you could find clothing in the dumpster In parking lots you could often find articles of clothing money like I said earlier many places frown on people begging for money so be careful about doing that. Temporary services like LABOR READY hire walk in people and some times have a job lined up for you the same day.Other times however you might wait around all day and get nothing.That's the best time to sleep. In the warmer weather construction contractors hire people without any experience and train them to do clean up and waste removal as well as carrying the tools and materials from the truck to the sight. In the warmer weather land scapers hire people without any experience and train them to do clean up and waste removal as well as carrying the tools and materials from the truck to the sight. Many farms rely on unskilled labor to plant and to harvest crops too delicate to be harvested by machines. In the winter time people sometimes hire people to shovel their drive ways and sidewalks. If you can find an aluminum recycling center practically everywhere you go there's soda and beer cans you can pick up and bring to the recycling center for a little extra cash.
  • 7. Sometimes places pay for human blood and plasma look under blood banks in a telephone directory while your at the temp service waiting for a job. Sometimes truckers hire people to unload their freight for them because they've been driving all night and their tired. Sometimes resteraunts hire people to do nonfood related tasks like sweep and mop the floors,clean the bathroom,take out the trash ect. While your at the temp service Besides looking for the blood bank also look for listings in the newspaper for roomates wanted then call and explain your situation. If that dosn't pan out then try the rooms for rent section and explain your situation when you call. Also look in the houses for sale section of the news paper and see if you can find any listings for no money down homes for sale.Give it a shot!After all what do you got to loose?What the hell right?Besides the worst that could happen is that they say no.If you go for it and they say yes then there you go,but don't expect it to be a palace in a gated community. If you already have a job and a car Then your alot better off then alot of people. Park at a highway rest stop and sleep in the car then goto a truck stop and take a shower and wash your clothes.If you are strapped for cash goto a payday loan office and make a loan for as much as you can get or need to get. Now is not a good time for you to goto a hotel because you'll need whatever you can get to get your life back on track. For the people who aren't homeless BASIC STEPS STEP 1 Getting it together The first step is assessment and organization.This is the most important step because in the process of self assesment your counting your blessings.Go through your home and write down all of the stuff you already have in an inventory list.
  • 8. As you go through the things you have in your home clean each item to like new condition and if damaged make any nessisary repairs if possible and economicaly feasable.Organize by putting it in it's respective place I.E. dishes in the ketchen,toiletpaper in the bathroom ect. Put all the items you plan to get rid of into seporate piles and mark a box for each pile as yard sale/garage sale donations,e-bay,christmas presants,birthday presants ect. then put them away in storage. STEP 2 Make a list of the things that you still need that you don't already have.List the things in catagorys to make it simple to use.I have included a general list of the most common things found in the every day home.It isn't nessisary to have everything on the list but you can use it as a helpful guide.I have also included a list of the most common places to find items you may need.Before you go out and buy any of the items on your list first ask your friends,family church members,coworkers and neighbors if they might have any of the items on the list they are willing to donate to you or know anyone that has something on your list they are getting rid of or selling for really cheap. "Ask,and it will be given to you;serch and you will find; knock,and the door will be opened for you." __Matthew 7:7 Now make a list of all of the things that you could not afford to repair right away.There are a few factors that should be considered when repairing anything.First is how important that item is to you sentimentally.Second is value to general society.Even if you have no possible use for it if it is valuable to someone else you can sell it to them or trade for what you want or need that you do have use for. The third thing to consider is if it would cost more to repair then it would to replace and if it would cost more than it's value to repair.Sometimes it's cheaper just to buy a new one. Also consider how often you may use this item.If it's being kept as a sentimental item then dose it need to be repaired right away or can it wait?Another question to ask is if it can be repaired.If it is damaged to a state of unrepairability then think about what you would like to do with the remains. You can simbolicly incorperate them into the design of something else or keep it as is or throw it away or bury it in a symbolic gesture of respect for the object you once cherished.That's your choice!
  • 9. STEP 3 Make a budget of your money.This should include your rent,utilitys,phone bill,internet charges,car payments,car insurance,grocery bill,credit card payments,student loans,cable bill and any other bills you might have and subtract them from the amount of money you earn. If your monthly bills exceed your pay check then figure out the bills that you can cut back on and some of the extras you can do without. Even if your bills don't exceed your monthly budget you should cut back on expenses anyway. Do you really need 180 channels of reruns and repeats? Do you really need a cellular phone in case of an emergency or can you just use a pay phone or flag someone down if you break down? Put away as much money as you can into savings. Invest your money!Aside from putting your money into savings you should put aside a little for investments,tools supplys,and things that will help you make a profit later on. Do your research to learn more about stocks and bonds and mutual funds,buissness ventures and other investment intrests. Find the highest paying job you can and go back to school. Take a course in something that you enjoy and are intrested in. If it's something your intrested in your more likely to remain in an occupation that is relitive to this ,the rewards will be more enjoyable and you will be more likely to do well. Be patient!Take your time and do well!Take little steps and don't push yourself too hard!Keep a slow steady pace and keep trying. Stay out of trouble!Keep your nose clean as the saying goes.No matter how hard a person trys to pull you into a conflict stay out of it.Don't have anything to do with criminal activity as much as possible and avoid situations that may lead to wrongful incarceration if possible.For the time and money you loose and all of the other ramifications involved you'll loose more than you gain Mabe you can nigotiate or try to resolve the situation in a peaceful manner first.That isn't as easy as it sounds and
  • 10. way easier said than done but with a little practice it gets a lot easier over time. The reason we work is to improve our own lives as well as other peoples lives and the lives of the generations to come so donate your time and money to improve your community and the world you live in. Volenteer at your local red cross, do fund raising for the animal shelter,pick up the garbage around your ariea streets and side walks. Join the Boy Scouts of America or what ever you feel you would like to do to make the world a better place to live. Remember that everything we have comes from the ground.."We brought nothing into this world and it is certain that we can carry nothing out." I Timothy 6:7 Your not going to live forever that's just part of life but what you give to others will impact the world long after you are gone. Everything you have right now comes from the earth and it's value is truely nothing compared to the value of human decency and integraty.That dosn't mean to give away all your worldly possesions but if you have enough to be in a situation where you can afford to help others and it isn't going to effect you by giving help then do so,but do it because you want to help others and don't expect to have any recognition for it or to gain anything in return. LIST FOR THE HOME The fallowing list is a list of common household items currently found in the average home.Use this list as a scavenger hunt list and mark off any of the items you already have.Remember that you should buy the items that best fit your individual needs so it's up to you to decide if you should buy new or used,name brand or genaric and to choose the style,color ect.It's what you value that matters the most.Remember it's your money!

Some ideas are out lined below. offer to watch the kids while she's at work. offer to do some of the repairs to her house or apartment. offer to repair her car. offer to do some yard work. offer to help her file her taxes offer to repair her computer. offer to help her to find better bargins on the things she needs. Do the best you can to sweeten the deal then fallow through with it if she says yes. If you don't get along with your ex wife cut your losses and move on.Think of it as giving your kid up for adoption.You can explain it to your kid when he or she is older and moves out.Stay out of the drama game!Move to another state or another country and stay the hell away!It may sound cold but think of the alternitive!I could fill a book just on the sick things that devorced parents do to their kids to get back at each other.Is it worth it?No!Move on and don't look back!
  • 24. Trust me your kid will have plenty of time to get to know why! On the other hand it might give you just the time you need to get yourself together and become more mature and able to handle the responsibility of being a good parent. On the government side of the equashion you should explain your financial situation then offer payments on any back child support as you pay the current payments. If that dosn't work try to pay it off with a credit card if you can, then make payments on the card until it's payed off. After you have everything current keep it that way!

Clothing can also be found in the dumpster in most apartment complexes. HYGENE Soap and toilet paper can be found at resteraunts and service stations.In a pinch you can use paper napkins as a substitute for toilet paper. REPAIRING ITEMS IN YOUR HOME To save money sometimes its better to repair an item instead of replaceing it.Use the list below as a helpful guide.Some of the methods date back as early as the 1800s.
  • 26. PLASTIC ITEMS To repair a plastic item it is helpful to have a few scraps of the same kind of plastic that can be used to weld or glue in place as a patch on any items with holes or missing pieces. It is also helpful to have a little creative ability in sculpting and to have patience. CRACKS For small cracks in a piece of plastic that dosn't hold any pressure behind it clear apoxy like super glues will work fine.For PVC pipe that may hold water pressure it may be nessisary to cut the pipe and put a streight connector in place.for long cracks it may be nessisary to use two streight connectors and a replacement piece of PVC pipe. The freshly cut ends and the connectors as well as any replacement pipe should be sanded and cleaned and free of oil before glueing them together.Use PVC cleaner to soften plastic before glueing fallowing the directions on the can. Use PVC glue to glue the dry pipe and connectors together. SMALL HOLES For small holes in plastic appliances use plastic filler purchased at any hobby shop.After the hole has been filled it may be nessisary to touch it up with paint.You should try to match the color and texture as closely as you can.for imitating texture of an object lightly press a piece of plastic filler over an oiled section of the project then let dry.use this to impress onto the patched ariea of the project.It may at times be nessisary to etch the patterine by hand to blend it with the existing piece. LARGE HOLES You should cut the hole into the simplest shape you can then trace it's edges on a piece of paper.cut the traced image out and use it as a pattern to copy onto a piece of plastic.Cut the plastic then put a bead of glue on it's edges. Press the piece firmly in place and let it set for a few hours regardless of whatever it says of the drying time on the glue lable.Paint and sand the object then dry. WOOD Regular wood filler can be used to fill small holes but for larger holes in wood it is nessisarry to use a piece of wood that will fit inside the hole then coat the edges with wood filler and remove excess from surface. Cheap wood filler can be made by mixing wood glue and saw dust together to make a puddy consistancy.I leave this
  • 27. to the reader to determine the consistancy desired and to measure the quanitys there of. Once the wood has been filled then sand the wood to a smooth surface then paint.The wood filler unfortuneately will not stain properily but if you desire the piece to be stained you can mix coloring into the wood filler to match the surface color and it will dry to roughly the same color. METAL For metal surfaces there a number of things you can use to repair holes.The most common is to use body filler.Fallowing the directions on the can mix the body filler on a scrap piece of cardboard using a plastic puddy knife. Be shure that the color is consistant and that the filler is thourally mixed with the cream hardener.Once this has been done quickly place the mix onto the surface and flaten as smooth as possible.It may help to have a mask or rag over your face to keep from inhailing the noxiouse fumes.It may also make the job easier to whear gloves because if it sticks to your hands it's difficult to remove.Let the work dry over night then sand the surface with an electric sander using course sand paper to get it about level with the metal surface then use fine grit to bring it even with the surface. Be careful to not apply too much pressure to the sander or to sand an ariea too long.This will cause it to melt and make melted balls of body filler on the surface of the sand paper that will destroy your work. MIRRORS This a job that will take considerable skill to do correctly if you intend to repair the glass.If you don't mind replacing the mirror glass then the job will be worlds easier. You will need to remove the mirror silvering from the glass before you weld the pieces back together.Once the glass is clean prepair a setiline or propain tourch by opening the valve on a low setting then lighting the gas.slowly raise the setting until the flame is blue.slowly heat the glass on a nonflamible surface such as metal or concreate.Remove the flame periodically to move the pieces of glass closer together then continue to heat the edges until the glass has mended together.Continue to give even sweeps over the surface of the glass and lower the flame.Slowly reduce the amount of time given to each sweep then lower the flame again.Continue this process until the flame is off.Let the project cool slowly.The slower the better. MIRRORING GLASS Buy a can of mirroring spray paint and a can of grey primer paint.The mirroring paint can usually be found at any
  • 28. hardware store,craft store or hobby shop.It usually sells for the same price as regular spray paint.Lay the glass on a newspaper or a piece of scrap cardboard then spray the glass with the mirror spray paint in even sweeps.Be shure to stop periodically to shake the can.Let dry completely then spray on the primer paint in an even coat over the mirror sprayed surface.Let dry.Reinsert the mirror into it's frame and secure. STCKERS,DECALS & LABELS For replaceing stickers,decals or labels make a photo copy of the original then adhere it to the project you are working on.If you do not have the original stickers,decals or labels then you can improvise with custom decals using fonts on your home computer or picture samples you find in magazines or other sources.Once you have found the picture sample you want simply print it out to size as a color transparency and cut it out then adhere it to it's proper location. For large stickers,decals or labels you can use the same transparency method or you can trace an image onto the surface of the project using stencils or a photo copy of the item and a sheet of carbon paper then paint it with a artists paint brush or mask it off with masking tape along the lines and spray it with spray paint in light even coats. HANGING WALLPAPER Hanging wall paper is difficult but there's an easier way to do it. First determine the height you would like it to run it if you don't plan to run it the full expanse of the wall from floor to celing.After the measurement has been made for the height of the paper use a chalk line to mark it or use a ruler and a guide.I recomend using a chalk line and if you don't have a chalk line you can use a piece of string as a chalk line by rubbing it in ash.Take one end of the chalk line and nail it to the marked height of the desired wall paper height then do the same to the other end keeping the line taunt.Pinch the line between two fingers and pull it back then let it snap back in place.This should give you a fairly acurate marking of where the wall paper is to stop.Spray some spray adheasive to the surface of the wall where the paper is to be hung.Line up the wallpaper end with the line you have made then bend the paper to the corner and cut it streight across.Make shure that the paper is smooth against the wall and that it dosn't have any air pockets.With the freshly cut end of the wall paper still on the roll line it to the chalk line
  • 29. and the end of the freshly hung wall paper.Repeat the steps used to hang the first piece and continue until your done. PATCHING PLASTER If you have a small screw hole in the wall use a little piece of toiletpaper ,napkin or straw wrapper by chewing it into a spitball then forceing it into place with your finger.Flaten it out then paint over it. For larger holes cut the hole into a small square then cut a small piece of sheetrock into a square to match it.If you have no sheetrock use a piece of cardboard and cut it to fit the hole.For both you should carefully press the patch into place as flush as possible.Cut strips of news paper to a two inch width then wet the paper and stick it to the wall over the patched hole.Carefully place a layer of joint compound over the paper and smooth it out with the puddy knife.Let dry then sand it smooth.paint and texture it then let it dry. SPACKELING TAPE To save a few bucks on spackeling tape you can use strips of newspaper cut to the width of the spackeling tape and apply it the same way you would use the tape. STUCCO For reparing stucco you can use a mix of paper mache and dry plaster mix.To make the paper mache rip up as much news paper as you need and put it into a bowl,add water and let it set over night.Break up the newspaper with your hands and mush it between your fingers.Add in a little plaster of paris at a time until the mix is similar to stucco mix then apply to the damaged arieas.Allow it to dry before painting. PAINTING It's a good idea to first clean the walls free from any dirt grease,soap scumb,bird droppings,loose paint and ect. before you paint.After you have prepaired the wall you should patch paint over any ariea that you scraped away loose paint or that may be stained or discolored.For stains that bleed through the paint you should spray the ariea with degreaser and wash the ariea with a hot soapy towel. Let the ariea dry then patch paint the ariea again using the same color as the wall and blend it the best you can. after the patch painted arieas are dry apply a thin coat of paint the same color as the paint already on the wall over the entire wall.The more you can blend it and stretch it out the better.Hopefully you won't need a second coat of paint after that. PAINT
  • 30. For dried out paint in a paint bucket you can add some paint thinner to it , stir it in and mix it well into the dried out paint and you should be able to use it as paint.The end result will be a chunky soup of colored paint thinner and softened globs of paint unless you mix the hell out of it and mash the globs with your hands.It's messy to do but it works. If you don't have any paint thinner you can also use kerosine gasoline or lighter fluid to soften up the paint. for paint that's too watery you can add a little plaster of paris or powdered joint compound to absorb the excess moisture. keep in mind however that it will lighten the color of the paint. If you don't want to change the color of the paint I would suggest that you just leave the can open for a day or so to let the moisture evaporate.You may need to stir it occashionally to keep it from skinning over at the top. PAINT BRUSHES Even cheap paint brushes cost money but if you take care of them they can be used almost indefinantly.For used paint brushes that are damaged by dried paint they can be easily cleaned by placeing them in boiling hot water and picking out the big globs of paint by hand when they are softened. Once the larger globs are removed the smaller globs of paint can be worked out with a hair comb and the remaining paint should wash out fairly easy. ROLLERS Like with cleaning paint brushes, rollers can be cleaned by using hot water and pulling off the large glops of stuck on paint.After the large glops are removed use your hand to force out any wet paint still in the roller.Wash the roller several times and force out the paint each time until the water comes out clear. CARPET Instead of replacing your old carpet you should see if you can restore the existing carpet by giving it a good shampooing with a rug shampoo machine.If you buy a rug shampoo machine you can bring it back after you use it.Spray any stains in the carpet with stain remover first and try to work out the stain.If the carpet is discolored but the mat is still in good shape you can always dye the rug for a fraction of the price of buying a new one. TRIM WORK For base boards,corner moulding and trim around doors and windows you can use calk to fill in small holes.You can also use paper mache, plaster of paris,spackle,wood filler,mud mixed with elmers glue,body
  • 31. filler or even playdough to fill in the small holes. For large holes you have to be a little more creative.For the larger holes you can fill them in with paper mache,plaster of paris,spackle,wood filler, mud mixed with elmers glue,body filler or playdough to fill in the holes, but you have to sculpt it into the shape of the rest of the moulding.To make it a little easier you can make a cast of the moulding then use it as a tool to slide across the surface that is to be moulded. For the really large holes or missing pieces you can remove the trim from an inconspiciouse ariea like behind the sofa or behind the bed and piece it in then blend the ariea with hole filler and paint. If there are no inconspiciouse arieas in the room that you can swap a piece of moulding then you can use the moulding cast and instead of using only hole filler cut a strip of cardboard small enough to fit the largest portion of the ariea with the missing piece then fill the rest with the hole filler. REPAIRING TILE Instead of replaceing all of the tiles first see if you can find replacement tiles that match the existing tile and replace only the tiles that are damaged or missing.If you can't find any tiles to match the existing tile then see if there's an ariea of tile in an inconspiciouse spot like under the refridgerator or behind the toilet and carefully remove it from that ariea.Once you have the replacement tile make shure it is cleaned well and make shure you clean the ariea of loose grout,dirt and tile before you apply new grout.Next apply the new grout and press in the new tile. press firm but carefully and slowly allow any excess grout to ooze out around the edges of the tile.Wipe the surface with a sponge and then press a book over the top to check if it is level.Use the cover of the book to check if the tile is lined up properly with the other tiles.If too many tiles are missing you should replace all of them. LAYING TILE First measure the room then determine the amount of tile needed by the measurement of their size.Spread the tile glue in strips of the same width as the tile and lay the tile in a streight line over the glue side by side then run another line of glue and line up the tile side by side next to the other tile line so the corners of the tile are side by side with a streight line in both directions.continue this process until you get to the edges of the wall then cut the tile by using the last tile as a guide. TUBS,SINKS &TOILETS If your tub,toilet or sink is broken see if you can replace only the broken portion of the tub,toilet or sink first.If the tub toilet or sink is damaged beyond repair mabe you can replace it with a used tub,toilet or sink. If the damage to your tub,toilet or sink are astetic flaws like rust stains scratches and nicks or chips missing ,cracks ect. you may still be able to
  • 32. repair it. For chips, nicks,scratches and cracks use body filler to patch them then sand it smooth.Clean the tub,toilet or sink after sanding to remove dirt and debris then clean the entire object well to remove grease,wall paint soap scumb,lime,calcium,mineral deposits and rust.To remove rust stains use rust remover and spray sparingly over the stain then rinse the stain well.Repeat if nessisary until the stain is gone. Remove the tub,toilet or sink from it's location then find a clean,dry and well ventilated ariea to paint your work.Shake the can of tub ,toilet & sink spray paint well.Make a last minute check to see if the tub,toilet or sink is completely dry and cleaned.Now spray the ariea that you made the repair to first with a really fast sweep and keep the can about a foot away from the project.Now let that dry completely before you put on another coat of paint.Clean the surface of the project and let it dry.Now spray paint the rest of the project with a thin coat of paint and blend it together the best you can.Clean the surface of the project and let it dry.If it's nessisary apply another coat of paint then clean the surface of the project and let it dry. HOT TUB If you have the ability to work with concrete you can save a lot of money building a hot tub yourself.First goto a place that sells hot tubs and get one of their flyers.Pick the one that you would buy if you had the money and find out what parts goto it and how much the replacement parts cost. Get the replacement parts and copy the design using concrete instead of fiberglass. PIPES You can save money on PVC pipe by useing garden hose. You should only use the garden hose on the cold water pipes because the hot water makes the hoses expand.It's better to use garden hose instead of PVC in arieas that are prone to pipes freezing in the winter because PVC tends to split and garden hose expands more readily.To connect it into the plumbing system use hose clamps and tighten the hose clamp & hose as tight as you can against the PVC without busting it.It helps to have a little rosen or glue to help seal it so it won't leak but if the clamp is tight enough you won't need any glue. ELECTRICAL This is not an ariea you should be cutting corners in.I'm not going to recomend it.However if it's nessisarry in an emergency it's need to know information.So I will include it in this book to be used at your own discression. HOUSE WIREING Old appliance cords recycled from refridgerators,ovens,telivishions, VCRs,sterios,microwaves ect.can be used temporarily to replace damaged house wireing.
  • 33. Extentions can be used temporarily to replace damaged house wireing. Heavy grade speaker wire can be used temporarily to replace damaged house wireing. FUSES For older fuse style fuse boxes a strip of aluminum can be used temporarily to replace damaged house fuses. For older fuse style fuse boxes a piece of old appliance cords recycled from refridgerators,ovens,telivishions,VCRs,sterios, microwaves ect.can be used temporarily to replace damaged house fuses. Heavy grade speaker wire can be used temporarily to replace damaged house fuses. LIGHTING If you don't have a lamp in your house a light bulb with old appliance cords recycled from refridgerators,ovens,telivishions, VCRs,sterios,microwaves ect.taped to the leads can be used temporarily to create a makeshift lamp.To make it a little more like a lamp you can tape it to the top of a beer bottle or liquer bottle. ROOFING First see if you can find any used replacement shingles that will match the existing roofing.If you can't find any replacement shingle that will match try to find something that's at least a fairly close match then swap it for some shingles in an inconspiciouse location of the roof like in the back of the house over the gutters. Use plenty of roofing tar under it when you put in the shingle and be shure that it lines up with the rest of the shingles. For arieas of the roof with rotten spots in the plywood you should strip away the shingles as carefully as you can over only the rotten portion of the plywood.Cut away the rotten plywood and replace it. Lay down a layer of roofing tar and roofing paper over the plywood patch then lay the salvaged shingles. For flat roofs cut away the rotten plywood and replace it.Next lay a thin layer of roofing tar and lay a cheap black plastic painters tarp over the ariea and press it down firm.Cut away any excess tarp then give a good bead of tar under and over the edges of the tarp and press it firm against the roof to prevent any leaks. TUCK POINTING If you don't plan on doing masonary work as a career more likely than not you don't have a tuck pointing tool. Instead of going out and buying one the next time you
  • 34. do masonary work on your house you can use an old spoon to push the concrete into the cracks and smooth it out. SIDEWALKS & PATIOS To save a few bucks the next time you set out to replace your patio or sidewalk you might want to consider using the broken chunks as filler for the new concrete you pour. You'll have to bust it up into smaller chunks with the sledge hammer but you'll save money on gravel and on dumping charges to get rid of the stuff. DECKS & PORTCHES Before you replace your deck you should consider just replaceing the damaged portions.If you intend to build a larger deck you should consider just adding onto the existing deck and staining it or painting it all one color. DOORS Instead of replaceing the door mabe you could repair the door you have by sanding it down, filling in any holes with wood filler,painting it or staining it,using larger and longer screws for fastening any hindges ect. Another idea is to buy a used door if the old door is unrepairable or missing.If your any good with wood working you could build the door from scratch and just copy the design of the door you really like for a fraction of the price of the door at the store. WINDOWS Like with doors you can salvage or replace old windows with old windows but I would recomend replaceing old windows with new ones that are more energy efficient. If you can't find any old windows you should consider useing plexiglass.It's a lot cheaper than glass and alot easier to cut. If you live in an ariea that you would be prone to having sports equiptment hurled through your window you may be better off in the long run to use plexiglass or plant a tall shrub in front of the window. STAINED GLASS WINDOWS These are truely the most beautiful windows to have in your home if they are done right.Many times they can be cheaper to make than replaceing a window with a used window.If you decide to go with stained glass instead of a regular window you should goto your local libruary and look under stained glass windows for some general ideas of the best patterines for you.Many people use religiouse themes,historical themes sports themes,nature themes,family crests ect. .
  • 35. LAWN & GARDENS You can use plastic bags,rags,carpet scraps,card board and newspaper sticks, saw dust and leaves to help prevent soil eroshion in your lawn or garden.This will also help to hold in soil moisture and absorb excess soil moisture.Scrap metal, broken glass and scrap plastic can be used in your lawn but it is not recomended for use in vegitable gardens. Human waste,animal waste,food waste, mulch and burned ashes make great furtelizer for lawns and gardens.It is important however to remember to meashure the PH content of the soil to assure proper growth of vegitation. IN GENERAL Any repairs that are made to your home adds value to your home.Even if it's only a rented apartment if you put your time and energy into repairing it and you have value in it as a home others will value it and respect you more for putting the effort into it. I would like to point out however that if you live in a rented place and do not own it or are not on the lease the land owner should be asked before any repairs are to be made.If there is a clear explination of the intentions to correct damages to your home that are minor astetic infringes to the overall structure usually there will be no disagreement as long as the land owner dosn't have to pay for it. You should adopt the same mentality as far as saving money and only make repairs that are absolutely nessisary to the order of the homes overall apearance.In other words if you can hang a poster over it or hide the defect with a piece of furneture do it and forget the problem unless you own the place you live in. CLOTHING REPAIRS Though it would be difficult if not impossible to include all of the styles and tecniques used in the modern world I give rough ideas of cleaning and repairs for general perpose use. DYING CLOTHING Wash the fabric then fallow the directions on the box of the dye manufacturer.It is a good idea to dye many items at one time to reduce waste of the dye.Things such as wash cloths,towels and dish clothes should be dyed multible times and then set to prevent the dye from fadding. Sheets,blankets,pillow cases and furniture should be washed thourally before being used so the dye dosn't wear off on your skin or clothes. REPAIRS
  • 36. For a pull in a sweater use a paper clip to pull the loose thread to the other side then pull until it is no longer visible from the out side of the sweater. For black shoes with a scuff mark clean the shoe then use a little vasoline or lip balm or grease,motor oil,butter margerine,Armor All or what ever you have to use to shine it and put it on the scuff mark then lightly buff it with a rag or a paper napkin or a wash cloth. For faded suits throw them in the washing machine then throw a couple of packets of Rit dye in with it and wash it on the most delicate setting you have.Let the suit drip dry then iron out the rinkles. If your sewing a sock always turn the sock inside out and sew from the inside so it won't show on the outside of the sock. BOOKS BOOK COVERS To repair book covers make a color photocopy of the book cover then cut it along the edges and paste it to the binding and existing cover. BOOK BINDINGS To repair book bindings first make shure that all the pages of the book are in proper order then align all of the pages so that they are flush along the back of the book.Now glue the edges together and press a piece of paper against the back cut to size.Let the glue dry then glue the book cover onto the book over the piece of paper. BOOK PAGES To repair damaged pages of a book press the edges of the torn paper together then gently apply a bead of glue and smooth it.Let it dry then glue it on the other side. For serverly damaged pages photo copy the page on both sides then remove the old page and replace it with the two new pages. COMPUTERS Pervention is the best medicine when it comes to computers.It's a reallt good idea for you to invest in a good libruary of anti virus related software and make as many back up files as you can.
  • 37. You should also turn off your computer when it's not in use.Not only dose it save on electric it saves whear and tear on the computer from heated circuit boards and dust collected as a result of ionization of the circuit board that acts like a dust magnet. Every six months you should crack open the case and give it a good vacume.Be shure that you lable every thing so you can remember where it goes when you put it back together. A really good way of preventing your computer from virus attacks is to install a simple on/off switch on the telephone inline that connects to your computer.When you want to use the internet put the switch in the ON position.When your not using the internet put it in the OFF position.Just make shure that the telephone and answering machineis are connected to the direct line and not to the output line of the computer. LOW COST THINGS TO DO FOR FUN Without some kind of entertainment you will find that things start to get more difficult.Your over processing things in your mind and making things more difficult than they need to be.The function of entertainment is a tool because it helps you to relive stress and unwind.Rather than to make snap judgements that you may later regreat you make clearer healthy judgements based on thought processes of a relaxed and healthy frame of mind.Too much of anything is a bad thing sometimes so it is your responsibility to decide when enough is enough,however it is healthy to balance this entertainment by using it as a tool to aid in learning. CANDLE MAKING If you have some old melted candles somewhere around your house you can make some pretty cool things from them with a little creativity and emagination. SUPPLYS AN OLD SOUP CAN SOME 100% COTTON STRING MODELING CLAY PLASTER OF PARIS CARD BOARD TAPE
  • 38. USED CANDLES PAM NO STICK SPRAY PAINT GLITTER SHOT GLASS SMALL PEBBLES PEN Put the candle scraps inside the tin can and put the can on the oven range on a low setting and let the wax set until it is melted all the way.Use an oven mit or a rag to remove the can from the range because it will be extremely hot. Carefully pour the wax into the shot glass untill it is filled half way to the top.Tape the small pebble to a piece of cotton string and let the pebble end fall into the shot glass while holding the other end with your fingers.Tape the free end to the center of the pen then rest the pen on the top of the shot glass and tape the ends that touch the glass to the glass then let the wax cool.when the wax is semisolid transfer the shot glass to the freezer and let it set for a half an hour.Once the wax is completely cooled remove it from the refridgerator then place it on the counter top.You will notice a dip in the center of the candle.Put the can of wax back on the range and heat it on a low setting until the wax is completely melted and then remove the wax can from the range and carefully pour the melted wax into the shot glass until it is full.Let the wax cool to semisolidification and insert into freezer unit .Set for half an hour and remove from glass. PROCESS 2 Sculpt a piece of modeling clay into a desired shape or design then place in the freezer.make a small box using a piece of cardboard and tape the edges of the box.Mix the plaster of paris and pour it into the box then place the sculpted design into the box halfway.
  • 39. don't It would make it easier to remove the sculpture if you spray pam or cooking oil on the modeling clay in a light coat.Once the plaster has set make another box for the top and fill it with plaster then the other box with the sculpture in it should be flipped around so the sculpture is faceing down and placed ontop of the new box. Once the plaster is dry in the top and bottom parts of the mould remove the sculpture and the outer layer of card board.Determine where you would like to place the wick then bore a hole into the plaster in the shape of a funnel. This is where the wax will be poured into the mould. Use a rubber band or a piece of tape and tightly secure the top and bottom of the mould together then pour the wax into the funnel shaped opening.Tape a pebble to the end of a piece of cotton string and drop it into the opening of the mould.It is easier to make the opening in a place where the top and bottom of the mould join but this isn't always possible to do unless for thought is in play and the sculpture is set in a way that it can be feasable. PAINTING MIRUALS First make an enlarged black & white photo copy of the subject material let's say a cartoon.Now use some wood ash and smear it on the back of the photo copy to make it a crude form of carbon paper then tape it over the ariea you want the mirual to be.Now carefully trace it and remove the photo copy when you are done.Now paint it with a cheap water color paint set or you can use colored markers. Paint the solid colors first then shade it in. OTHER CHEAP ENTERTAINMENT

  • 81. The most important reason is for your own health and safty as well as the health and safty of others.It's also rewarding to have a well maintained,clean and organized home to live in. For the cost of a few cleanig chemicals and a little time you save money in the long run because it is less likely that you would have to replace the items you have. It is also less likely that you would become sick from the germs and bacteria or injured from an item that was improperly maintained. I will help you go through a room by room order of cleaning tecniques and helpful tips to organize and save money. Fallow the directions the best you can and take your time. You could clean and organize one room a day after work then after the worst of it is taken care of fallow through by just keeping it organized and giving it a quick cleaning every Sunday or every other Sunday when you've got the time. KETCHEN The ketchen is probibly the most difficult to clean of all the rooms in your home.There are many places that dirt can collect. oven Generally if you spray on a thick coat of oven cleaner and let it set for a few hours it will be easy to wipe down but the smell is enough to make you gag.If you decide to use oven cleaner then get out of there as soon as your done and go do something else.For the large chunks of food use a spatula and scrape it out.if it's still stuck on use a paint remover blade or streight razor and carefully scrape under the stuck on piece.For any remaining food use a scrubby pad and wipe with pressure moving in circle motions then wipe the remaining grease with a sponge. For the oven racks soak them in the sink and clean them with a wire brush or steel wool to get the worst of it off first then wipe it down with a sponge. refridgerator To clean a refridgerator use regular dish soap and a bucket of clean hot water.Remove all food items from the refridgerator and put them in a polystirene cooler to keep them from thawing out too much.Use a scrubby pad and
  • 82. free up any food stuck to the bottom of the fridge.Once this is done wipe down the surfaces with a sponge rinsing frequently with the hot soapy water and rinse it down using a wet towl to clean off remaining soap residue.To disinfect the refridgerator surface that may retain oder use isoprople alcohol and apply it to the surface with an old T shirt or a rag. floors For heavily stained floors use bleach to remove the stains. Full strenth vinigar works too.Apply directly on the stain and let it set for a few hours.after the stain has been removed wipe away the bleach then mop.For heavily greasy arieas use degreaser. cabinets Use a little degreaser to wipe off the really caked on grease then use furniture polish to clean the wood surfaces. Use glass cleaner to clean any glass surfaces,metal surfaces or mirrored surfaces. SINK use glass cleaner on the faucets to give them a nice shine for the sink use degreaser and a scowering pad then wipe it down with a sponge.If theres any rust use sand paper or a wire brush to scrub it off. COUNTER TOPS Use degreaser and a scowering pad and clear everything off the counter before you start to clean.Wipe off any excess degreaser with a sponge and water.For wooden countertops furniture polish will make your counter look nice.For formica countertops armor all will make it sine like new. MICROWAVE Use a sponge and degreaser to clean the entire thing. Remove the microwave tray or plate and wash it with the dishes. DISHES I recomend washing the dishes by hand instead of in the dishwasher to save money on electric.To make washing dishes easier instead of using a sponge use a cheap pair of cotton work gloves from places like the dollar store or a discount store.For stuck on food let the dishes soak over night..Be shure to scrape out as much as you can before you soak them to make it easier for the water to soften the stuck on food.You should do the big dishes first to get them
  • 83. out of the way that way if you get sick of doing dishes you don't have a huge pile to come back to. BLINDS Remove the blinds from the window and put them in the bath tub or shower and spray them down with degreaser. Wipe them down with a scowering pad to free up any stuck on grease then wipe them down with a sponge.If you don't have any degreaser you can use regular dish soap as well. CURTAINS Remove the curtain from the curtain rod and wash it in the bathroom sink.using cold water and dish soap apply the dish soap to the material and work the soap into the soiled arieas first.Rinse the soap from the material then repeat. LARGE SURFACES Generally for large surfaced arieas like the outside of the refridgerator or the oven it's better to use a large rag like an old Tshirt or a towel instead of a sponge.Hot soapy water or degreaser can be used to aid in cleaning if desired. SMALL SURFACES For small surfaces it's better to use a wash cloth or soft sponge.Clean the hard to clean arieas like push buttons on the blender with the corner of the wash cloth or sponge or use a Qtip.Make shure any electrical device is unplugged before cleaning it.If the device gets wet in the process of cleaning and water seeps into arieas that are carring an electrical current it could damage the device or cause seriouse injury or death.If you are cleaning an electrical device and water gets into it let the device dry out for a few days before you use it again. LIVING ROOM RUG For short mat rugs sweep any large dirt by hand then vaccume.Spray rug foam on portions of the rug that are heavily soiled or stained and let it set.Vaccume and repeat if nessisary.Long mat rugs fallow the same process.For oval rugs clean them in the bath tub or shower in warm water and rinse out all of the loose dirt before using cleaning chemicals.When theres no more discoloration to the water comming from the rug soak the rug in laundry detergent and warm water for a few hours to work out any stuck on dirt then rinse well and let dry. FURNITURE
  • 84. For the coutch,chairs and love seats if it is made of material you can use rug foam and work it into the material then vaccume it out after the foam has set. For leather use leather cleaner for swade use swade cleaner and for vinal use armor all.For any wood surfaces use furniture polish.For any glass surfaces use glass cleaner.For metal surfaces use glass cleaner or crome cleaner.For plastic surfaces use armor all or degreaser or glass cleaner. NICK NACKS & FIGURINES For delicate items of sentimental value it is best that you consult an expert on a case by case bases for such items. If it is something that dosn't have much value then I would suggest spraying it down with degreaser then rinsing it off under cold water useing a soft sponge to clean off any dirt on it's surface then use a Q-tip to clean out any crevices.If the item is made of a material that would desolve in water such as chalk or mud then consult an expert for the item. For feathered items like a head dress or imbalmed bird consult an expert. BED ROOM RUG For short mat rugs sweep any large dirt by hand then vaccume.Spray rug foam on portions of the rug that are heavily soiled or stained and let it set.Vaccume and repeat if nessisary.Long mat rugs fallow the same process.For oval rugs clean them in the bath tub or shower in warm water and rinse out all of the loose dirt before using cleaning chemicals.When theres no more discoloration to the water comming from the rug soak the rug in laundry detergent and warm water for a few hours to work out any stuck on dirt then rinse well and let dry. BLINDS Remove the blinds from the window and put them in the bath tub or shower and spray them down with degreaser. Wipe them down with a scowering pad to free up any stuck on grease then wipe them down with a sponge.If you don't have any degreaser you can use regular dish soap as well. CURTAINS Remove the curtain from the curtain rod and wash it in the bathroom sink.using cold water and dish soap apply the dish soap to the material and work the soap into the soiled arieas first.Rinse the soap from the material then repeat. PICTURES
  • 85. Use glass cleaner to clean glass cased pictures.For posters use a damp wash cloth and lightly clean the surface.for tapastrys and oil paintings consult a professional. LAMPS For lamp shades spray it down with water then spray on degreaser then rinse.If the surface is water stained use a flat piece of paper towel and spread it over the surface then spray on ammonia and let it sit for a few hours. For the base of the lamp use glass cleaner on glass,plastic and metal surfaces and use furniture polish on wood surfaces. BED SPREAD First look for cleaning instructions on the tag.If there are no cleaning instructions then fallow these directions.For cotton and polyester bed spreads wash them in cold water in the washing machine then dry in the delicate press in the dryer.For silk,wool or down filled bed spreads consult the manufacturer. BATHROOM LARGE SURFACES Use a towel or an old T shirt and degreaser on the large surfaces like the tub,toilet and sink.Use a scowering pad to free up the thick film and residue then use the towel or T shirt to wipe it the rest of the way down then rinse the surface. GLASS AND METAL Use glass cleaner and a T shirt to wipe down the surface and on metal surfaces with caked on lime deposets and mineral deposits use lime away.If you dont have lime away use a scowering pad or a piece of sand paper and carefully scower the surface ariea then clean with glass cleaner. TRASH CAN First remove all waste within the trash can then rinse out the inside the best you can.Use hot water and bleach to clean the inside and degreaser to clean the outside.Fill the can about a quater of the way full with hot water then add a cap full of bleach.With a scowering pad scrub the inside then empty the can and rinse it out. BUGS & MICE If you have a bug or rodent infestation remember to use the chemicles and pesticides before you clean the house.
  • 86. VALUE When it comes to calculateing the value of an item what your doing is determining how hard you would work to get that item or how hard you think other people would work to get that item.There is no set mathimatic equashion that can be used to estimate the value of an item unless you consider the going price of a similar item already on the market,but that items overal market value had to be determined by someone and how much they felt it was worth to them. EXAMPLE:To a construction worker a sledge hammer is a very valueable tool.To a dentist or a heart surgion it would be much less likely to be used in their job routine so thus considerably less valueable to the doctors and even less so for their patients. On the other hand it could easily transfer it's value because of it's proper potential effective use as a construction tool. The value of an item is sometimes effected by it's history. EXAMPLE:The gutar used by Elvis Presley has great value because of it's historical significance,however if Elvis Presley had never been famouse it would have much less value. For calculating the value of an item you should weigh the pros & cons of it to figure out if it's right for you.Ask yourself the fallowing questions: Do I need it? How often will I use it? How much will I save if I buy it used opposed to new? How long will it last? Will it get stolen? Is there a lifetime guarentee? Can I but a new low quality item instead? If I buy it used dose it work? How much dose it cost to repair? Can I repair it myself? Do I know anyone that could repair it for me for less than a repair shop? Will they do it without complications or drama? What are the features of the item? If I payed a little more could I find a better deal on the features,quality,quanity and ect.? What other uses can I get from it in a pintch?EXAMPLES:clothes iron used to make a grill cheese sandwitch or duct tape to repair a hole in your muffler. Do I have enough money to get it? Do I have enough space for it? Will it make my life more comfortable,productive,efficient,enjoyable,effective,ect.? Will it cause problems with others if I buy it? Could I borrow or rent one for less? How much time will it take to repair? Do I need it right away? Will the price go up or down? Why do I want it? Why do I need it? Will I die without it?
  • 87. Is it worth it to me to have it? Why? NOW THAT YOUR IN ORDER Once you've got your life in order you should goto school. Fallow the guide the best you can and don't be afraid to ask anyone for help. FIDING A CAREER Choose something that you can do well and that you'll enjoy telling people that this is what you do for a living. You should enjoy the job you do and find a place that you get along with the people who will be your coworkers. The more you enjoy doing your job the better it is for you and the better it is for the company or buissness you work for. Start by doing a self assesment and figure out what it is you would like to do in your life then weigh the pros and cons of the job and determine if this would be the job that's right for you. Not everyone is cut out for the same job so determining what is right for you is your own responsibility. Before you even think about applying to a university you should know as much as you can learn on your own about the subject you intend to study.Trust me on this you'll save yourself a lot of embarassment and humiliation.You should be able to just walk in the door and knock off the final exam before your even registered at the university.The better you know your material the better you do on the test.The better you do on the test the more likely it is that you will pass without a hitch. A word of caution to first time students beware of any interaction with anyone in the university building and only interact with people if it is absolutely nessisary. The key here is to be abrupt and avoid eye contact. Never ever use the resourse rooms Use the internet at home or at the public libruary. If your unfamiliar with computers have someone you know at work or at home show you how to use the computer that way if you make a mistake your education and future career isn't at stake.
  • 88. Aside from universitys and technical schools there are also a number of corispondance course providers that offer a wide range of courses and degree programs for a suprisingly low price.Also many high schools and universitys offer night school courses and non credit courses.The goal here is for you to figure out what's best for you. If your willing to travel you should submit your resume over the internet and apply for the field of your intrest. Also see if the company is willing to train you.You may save a lot of your own money if you can find an employer that's willing to foot the bill for your education.They make out in the long run because they get an employee that's trained to perform the job they are hiring you for and they get a little extra kick back from Uncle Sam in their tax return. TIPS FOR STUDYING The information you learn is a tool that you should use as a tool.The more tools you have the more easily you can perform your job dutys. If you maintain these tools then they will work for you but if these tools become damaged or inaccessable then they are no longer useful.It is imparitive that you keep these tools well maintained and as accessable as possible.This is the reason you study.This the reason you need to actually learn the information instead of constantly refering to text sheets. All of those mathamatic equashions and nickle and dime words have a reason and should be learned to the best of your ability even if it seems boring and a waste of your time. All of those bible quotes mean absolutely nothing until you understand the storys and the morals of the storys and the reason that the quote should be befitting to a spicific subject. These storys have meaning and a reason for them being passed down from generation to generation. Another example is if you see a complex mathamatic formula on a black board, it will mean absolutely nothing if you don't understand the formulas.To you it will appear as random letters and numbers scattered on the black board. With out an at least a rudimentary knowledge of math you could never know how much money you made at work or if you got ripped off at the store.
  • 89. My point is that once you've got the general knowledge of the subject then you can begin to use it to your advantage to make your life easier and less complicated. Keep that in mind when your studying. The better prepaired you are to do a job the better you'll do at it. You won't always have the tools to do the job right away and there's no way that you can possibly memorize everything so this is why we have libruarys and books and the internet. These are tools that should be used as well.Familarize yourself with the local libruary and book stores around the ariea you live and read up on subjects that may intrest you. For studying a forign language here's a trick you can use to make it easier. For items say the word over and over again in your head and think about the item. Close your eyes and picture the item as clearly as you can in your emagination. Now do something really insane with it.Have sex with it,hurt people with it and do something really funny and bizzar. Now sound out the word and think of other words it's sounds like.Make up a story from the words it sounds like. What your doing is playing with it in your head while your familiarizing yourself with the word. Words are great tools and powerful wepons to use to help you to communicate your thoughts and ideas and to express your feelings and needs. Chances are that you remember every movie you've ever seen and though you may not remember all the details you would almost certainly remember a clip of it if you saw one or know if the movie had been edited or changed from it's original format. Chances are that you remember every telivishion show you've ever watched and could remember the theme song to it. Chances are that if you looked around the room right now you could name all of the items without breaking a sweat of the items you have seen and used before and can recall how they are used.
  • 90. Learning a forgn language is just learning a different name for the same thing.That's all it is!Once you have built up your vocabulary you can construct sentences and paragraphs of words to say to people. Remember that there are words that sound the same but mean something else so it is important to memorize it correctly or people might get ofended. This is why it is important to memorize the phenetics of the word and break it down into sylibles to achieve the proper pronounciation of the word. After you have used it over and over again it will be automatic to be able to switch from one language to another without any thought about it. Another helpful tool is to use a yellow highlighter marker to outline the point of the material. Every book has a little fat in it even this one.Use the marker to cut through it and use a pen to make notes about the material and what might connect to it. The study patterine you should adopt is how the human body processes food 1)HUNT AND GATHER(take what you want) 2)STREAMLINE (throw the rest away) 3)ABSORB(organize & customize it to fit your needs) 4)STREAMLINE(scrap the rest) 5)REPEAT This process can be applyed to almost all aspects of life. In conjunction with this process there is another process that may also be benificial to you in applied aspects of your studys as well as all other aspects of your life.This process is known as the Osborne checklist.Use this in the third phase of the process stated above or by it's self. Go through the check list and ask yourself COULD WE...... 1.MODIFY? _________what to add _________more time,greater frequency _________stronger,higher,longer,thicker _________duplicate,multiply,exaggerate
