I’m a finance student who loves to cook and eat. I find that I can eat and make meals that I really enjoy for hours, even cooking and eating while studying. But I also know that there are times when I feel like I have too much going on, and it’s really hard to have time to cook and eat. I often have to make a real effort to get that time back, and have to make it something that I truly enjoy.
I’m gonna admit I was a little bit shocked to hear that people are actually paying people to cook for them. I think it’s a great idea and something that should be done in the future, especially since the majority of restaurants and cafés are struggling. As long as it’s not a slave-like situation, I think it’s a good idea.
They are, at least in our case. I did not have a slave-like situation in my own kitchen, so I decided to try out a new and better kitchen, with a cook who also works a few shifts at the grill shop. The cook is a very nice, but tired, man. The grill shop is also very nice, and I feel like I get to do what I want to do there. I get to work with a great amount of energy and creativity.
I have to tell you, I have a really hard time seeing the’slave-like’ situation. I feel like some of the slaves worked so hard to get where they are, and so am I. The more slaves you have, the harder it becomes to break free.
When I hear the word slavery, I immediately think of the horrible things that have been done to the African-Americans during the civil war. The Civil War was a vicious conflict that killed over a million people. The same thing is happening today with many of our fellow Americans. We have to figure out a plan that will allow us to get paid for what we do. The more slaves we have, the harder it will be to break free.
I’m a slave to the company I’m born into. So when my wife and I bought our first house, we were excited because we had the opportunity to get paid a reasonable amount of money for the work we were doing. At first we thought we’d be able to pay everyone in cash, but the bank wouldn’t let us. We had to take out first mortgage. The first thing we did was to get our names on the mortgage.
We were surprised that the bank wouldnt let us pay in cash. We did pay in cash, but only until a few months later because, after doing it a few times the bank started to complain about our lack of payment. We had a few months where we only had to pay our bills. The bank kept on asking us if we were sure we wanted to pay them in cash. The only way we could pay them was by taking out a second mortgage.
In any case, we went to the bank and told them we didn’t want to take out a second mortgage until we found out what happened with our first mortgage. They said that this was common practice. The bank was more than happy to talk to us in person. They gave us the option to pay them in cash or in a lump sum. We chose the lump sum because after months of having to pay them by check, we didn’t want to be paying them by check anymore.
The second mortgage was much more problematic. Our first mortgage was a 30 year loan, and in our first meeting with the bank, they told us it would take approximately nine months (in full) to clear the second mortgage, and if we did not meet the terms, we would need to pay $1,000 a month in penalties. We felt like we just wasted a month of our life in this situation.
This isn’t to say that we will never pay off the second mortgage; in fact, we will probably pay it off by the end of the year. But, the idea that we will need to pay off a mortgage this month is an idea that makes no sense to us.
