Destiny

Monday, 24 December 2018 19:08

Destiny / fate (whatever you call it) is capricious and ever changing. It has different effects at different times, but it also has different effects on different people. For some people, it shows up regularly, to give them a fresh dose of hope. Then there are some people who it never takes notice of. These people live calm and quiet lives and enjoy their simple joys. And then there are other people who destiny pays too much attention to.

Sam Brown really wanted to be invisible. But destiny never gave him that opportunity.

He was tall, thin, and with fiery red hair, and so he stood out in any team photo. He had to endure the same jokes about his appearance over and over again, and in the meantime, he patiently waited for his peers to become mature and to quit their stupid jokes. Eventually the jokes about his appearance went away, but they were just replaced by newer jokes.

For example, people found it comical that he always used to sing songs with his last name in the title (like “John Brown’s Body” and “Sweet Georgia Brown”) at talent shows. And “educated” people would ask him, with a smirk, if his uncle, a famous writer, would give them an autograph. Sam was always surprised when it happened. Why did they want his uncle’s autograph? What would they do with it? And why not his aunt’s autograph? She could sign her name just as well as his uncle could.

Although Sam was accustomed to the constant attention, he nevertheless tried to hide from his fate. Therefore, he got a job in a supermarket and worked in the back. He assumed that in the warehouse, he would interact with fewer people and hear fewer dumb jokes.

But even in the warehouse, fate found him.

One day he went to the bank to make a regular payment on a loan and he was surprised to hear that his account had been blocked. When he asked who had blocked it, they told him it was the police.

Sam Brown had never dealt with the police before. Even about speeding. But then again, Sam didn't have a car. Well, there’s a first time for everything. Sam called the police and asked why they’d blocked his account. They told him he was suspected of several crimes and they asked him to come to the police station voluntarily.

He went.

After two hours of talking, it turned out that a mistake had been made and that the suspect was actually a completely different Sam Brown. Our Sam Brown, accustomed to the unexpected twists and turns of destiny, politely asked when his bank account would be unblocked. He was told that the procedure would take two to three days. Sam said that such a delay was unacceptable, because he had to make a loan payment the following day. The police told him that nothing could be done and that he had to just wait.

At that moment, Sam Brown lost it and started shouting. He yelled about his rights, that they couldn’t do this to him, etc., etc. He did a lot of yelling. Then he calmed down. Then they offered him coffee.

Sam was no fan of coffee. So he quickly left and went back to his job. He walked past his boss, past the staff, and over to the back where the unloading ramp was. There he saw his friend Mark, who was carefully looking at a state map.

"What's new?" Sam asked.

"Our state has some pretty cool city names!" Mark answered, still looking at the map.

"Do those cool cities have banks?" Sam asked, thinking about his problem.

"I suppose so. Why? You already have a bank account, don’t you?" Mark asked, looking up at Sam.

“My bank…doesn't love me,” Sam said, and then briefly explained his situation.

"That’s not a problem,” Mark said and shrugged. "Listen. I’ll tell you what you have to do."

Sam listened and even wrote down a web address. Then he went to a computer, typed https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got money. The next day, he used that money to make his loan payment.

He also did another thing. A very unexpected thing. He bought a lottery ticket.

His reasoning was thus: "If fate is testing my strength and it hasn’t broken me, well, maybe I can test fate.”

Let's hope that fate / destiny gives Sam a break. Sam sure needs it.

Black Friday

Monday, 17 December 2018 17:44

Understanding is the key to a healthy relationship. If a husband and wife understand each other, the bond is strong and they can withstand any blows of fate.

"Do you know Black Friday is the day after tomorrow?" Marcy asked.

"If today is Wednesday,” answered Andy, “then the day after tomorrow is Friday.”

He was unsuccessfully trying to repair a toaster.

"You don’t understand,” Marcy said. “The day after tomorrow is BLACK FRIDAY!"

"So what? Do you want me to wear black or something?" Andy couldn’t figure out why the wiring in the toaster went left instead of the normal right.

"They’re going to have deals on everything!"

"Including toasters?"

"Yeah, toasters too, I guess. We can get a new one on Friday."

"But if I fix this one,” Andy said, “we won’t have to buy a new one. Self-sufficiency is a matter of principle.”

"No, it’s not. If they’re selling toasters 70 percent off, we’ll buy a toaster."

"Even if we don't need one?"

"How can you know if you need something until you buy it? Once you buy it, then you know.”

“What? I wasn’t listening,” Andy said, fiddling around with the toaster. "What did you say?”

“It doesn't matter,” Marcy dismissed the question. "The point is they’re having big discounts. On everything."

"On cheese? You know I love unusual cheese."

"I’m afraid there will be no discounts on cheese. But as for electronics, clothes...hey, do you want me to buy you a new T-shirt? If it’s 70 percent off?"

"No."

"Why not?"

“Well, if a shirt is 70 percent off, then there must be something wrong with it.”

"You don't understand marketing at all!"

Andy kept working on the toaster.

Marcy excitedly walked around the kitchen, then stopped and quickly turned to Andy.

"Do you have any money on your card?"

"No, I get paid next week. Why do you ask?"

"Oh, no reason. Hmm. Well, where did you get the money for your tool kit?"

Andy told her. Then Marcy went to a computer, typed https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money.

Andy didn't fix the toaster that day. And he didn’t fix the toaster the next day. But at 5 a.m. on Friday, Marcy entered the local megastore and bought a lot of stuff that was 70 percent off.

Andy never did find out the full extent of his wife’s Black Friday shopping purchases. But the important thing was that Marcy was happy. And they had a working toaster once again.

Seventies Party

Friday, 14 December 2018 15:07

If a woman sets her heart on doing something, she’ll do it. Even if she has to make some sacrifices.

Claire and Bruce met at a party given by their mutual friends. Or maybe they didn’t have any mutual friends. Who knows? The important thing is that Claire and Bruce both showed up at a party where neither knew anybody there.

Of course, at a noisy, fun, and alcohol-fueled party, it’s sometimes hard to understand the person you’re talking to. But Claire immediately understood Bruce. Behind his external coldness, aloofness, and even occasional rudeness, she saw a sensitive, vulnerable heart. A heart that could respond to someone else’s trouble and empathize, but was itself protected by an armor of indifference. Calire saw Bruce as he was and she accepted him. She liked him too.

However, their relationship developed unevenly. Sometimes Bruce would call her every day, telling her everything that was going on in his life, suggesting they meet, and then meeting. But sometimes he would disappear for a week or two and not even answer her calls. At first, Claire excused Bruce’s behavior, but then it began to annoy her. She wanted at least a little stability in her life.

When she realized she couldn’t get any stability from Bruce, she decided to take the situation into her own hands.

As often as possible, every man should remind his woman that she is the most beautiful in the woman in the world. And if the man does not say these words, then the woman has to remind the man to do so.

One day, Bruce invited Claire to a seventies-themed party their mutual friends were giving. Claire knew that Bruce liked the music of the seventies, as well as the style and atmosphere of the seventies. She was a 21st-century woman with 21st-century tastes, but she looked around and found a website where she could buy seventies-style clothes for the party. She found some thigh-high boots and a short, colorful dress. She imagined getting a new hairstyle and putting on make-up and was pleased with how she thought she’d look. There remained two things left to do: she had to wait for the day of the party and she had to go the party with Bruce.

Claire waited as long as she could - three days. Then, unable to hold out any longer, she went to Bruce’s friend, Dirk the music store guy.

"Hi!" Claire waved and then immediately turned to the topic at hand. "When was the last time you saw Bruce?"

"A week ago. Maybe two weeks ago," Dirk shrugged. "Why? Is he missing?"

“No,” Claire shook her head. "It’s just we agreed to go to a seventies-themed party, but he didn't tell me when it would take place."

“Oh. It’s tomorrow,” said Dirk.

"What?!" Claire was so surprised she dropped her purse. "Tomorrow?”

"Tomorrow," repeated Dirk. “Here’s the address and the invitation,” he said and turned the computer monitor toward Claire.

"But how...there’s not enough time..." Claire said, looking very confused.

"Not enough time for what? Did he forget to tell you?"

"No, he told me," Claire said and pulled herself together. "It’s just my dress...I guess I’ll have to buy it today. I just don’t have enough money on my card."

"You can’t imagine how many times I hear people say it. But look, it’s not a problem at all."

Dirk showed Claire what to do. Claire went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money. Then she bought the dress and boots and went to her hairstylist.

And then she went to the party. Everything was great: the music, the decorations, and the atmosphere itself. But best of all, of course, was Claire in her new dress and boots. Bruce appreciated her new outfit and told her she was the best-looking woman there. Then a half-hour later, he said it again. And as they were leaving the party, he said it a third time.

The Presentation

Wednesday, 12 December 2018 18:36

There are some simple rules in life that you should never forget. For instance: Wash your hands before you eat. Don’t cross the street when you shouldn’t. And look where you walk.

But Paul was too deep in his thoughts to follow that last maxim. He even decided, mid-walk, to pull his laptop out of his backpack in order to test some new idea. But no testing would take place that day. Because something happened that often happens when a person forgets the simple rules.

Paul tripped and fell. The asphalt was not harmed, but Paul's ambition was. And unfortunately, so was his laptop; it had broken in two. You don’t have to be a computer repairman to know that broken-in-two laptops are pretty darn broken.

Paul got up, brushed off his pants, and stood in the middle of the sidewalk, holding in his hands the two parts of what had until recently been his beloved laptop. People walked by, some bumped into him, others even yelled at him for blocking the way, but Paul could neither feel nor see nor hear. Until a policeman said something, that is.

"Sir, is there a problem?"

"Huh? Oh. I'm fine," Paul said, although he was not at all fine. He was in shock. One moment, he was going through life, happy as a turtle, with a wonderful future that he had been working toward for six months, and the next moment, it was all gone. What could he do?

He walked forward, pressing the laptop’s severed carcass to his chest, and then he suddenly turned down a side street. He pulled out his phone, although he had no idea who to call. He clicked the Call button and saw that the last person he’d talked to was Bruce. He decided immediately. He pressed the call button.

"What else do you want?" Bruce asked in a very displeased tone. "We’ve already gone over everything."

"Listen, I need your help! Can you help me?"

"Don’t yell! I can hear. Jeez. Well, what's the problem now?"

Bruce's calm, almost indifferent voice could sober up anyone. But not Paul and not today.

"Could you lend me your laptop for a few days?"

"What? Why?"

"Look, tomorrow I’ve got a presentation for investors and my laptop is broken. It's a nightmare!"

"Do you still have the presentation itself?"

"Of course. I always make a copy on a flash drive."

"Well, buy a new laptop then. What's the problem?"

"I don’t have the money to just go out and buy a brand new computer. And I need one tomorrow and if I don’t have one, I’m toast. All that time, all that work...”

"Shut up and listen," Bruce ordered. "What are your coordinates, soldier?"

Paul told him.

“There’s a music store not far from you, just two clicks north. There’s an employee there, goes by the name of Dirk. Tell him I sent you. He’ll explain everything. Do I make myself clear, Private?!”

“Sir, yes, sir!” Paul yelled, hung up, and ran in the right direction.

Dirk really did explain everything and then he allowed Paul to use his computer. Paul went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money. Then he bought a laptop.

The next day, Paul gave a presentation to his investors and everything went gravy.

Afterwards, he joyfully glided out of the building and ran through the streets as if he were in a dream or a mid 50’s Technicolor musical. But then he suddenly stopped, remembering something. Maybe it was one of those simple rules that everyone should follow. He stood up straight, and barely restraining himself, he walked slowly, paying close attention to the world around him.

Who Can Take Out a Payday Loan?

Monday, 10 December 2018 21:53

Are you interested in getting a loan? Most likely, the first thing you’ll think of doing is going to your bank’s website in order to learn more about their loan programs. And it’s quite possible that you’ll see large loan amounts that can take several days to be processed. But what if you need a small amount of money to cover current expenses, pay bills, repair equipment, or spend on an unexpected little trip? Can you take out a loan quickly? Do you fit the criteria?

Yes, you do fit the criteria…if you borrow from an online loan company. Speed is their second name. You can get a loan 24/7, weekdays, weekends, holidays, whenever (read more here: Choosing an Online Loan Company). Let’s see what the criteria are:

• You are 18 or over

• You have a driver’s license or passport

• You have a debit card or credit card from an American bank

• You have a phone number and an e-mail address

Maybe it sounds too easy. Well, here are the answers to some frequently asked questions,

Do I Have To Be Employed?

No, it’s not necessary. Whether you’re temporary unemployed or unofficially employed, on maternity leave or retired, you still have an opportunity to get a fast loan. While it’s true that it’s best to have some kind of income (even if it’s low) to prove you can pay back the debt and the interest, online loan companies have very flexible conditions. You always have the chance to reach an agreement quickly.

They Won’t Like My Credit History

Maybe they won’t. But you will usually be able to borrow at least the minimum amount the company offers, since online loan companies want new clients and are willing to provide the necessary amount for a short period of time. And if you take out a loan and pay it back on time, it will improve your credit score.

In short: literally everyone can take out a payday loan. And that’s a great thing.

Do you still think that taking out a loan is difficult and inconvenient or that it involves waiting in lines and filling out documents? Well, everything’s changed! There are a lot of reliable online loan companies that have shortened the process and they’re ready to help you any time of day, any day of the week. You won’t be able to receive huge amounts of money immediately, but you’ll be able to cover your current expenses and needs without having to wait for a paycheck or help from relatives.

The advantages of online loan companies:

• Fast Process (less than an hour)

• Availability for the unemployed or clients with negative credit history (companies approve more than 95 percent of applications)

• Flexible Conditions (even if your repayment is overdue, it’s best to cooperate with the company instead of waiting for debt collectors)

• Online Contract (you can get a loan without walking out the front door)

So What Do You Need to Apply for The Loan?

1. Visit the site from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. Many companies have a loan calculator on their website that will help you calculate what the loan repayment will be, based on the amount and duration of the loan.

2. Fill in the form with your personal information, the loan amount, and the terms of loan repayment (the duration of the repayment schedule, whether it’s gradual or full repayment).

3. Wait for approval and instantly get the money on your debit card. Use your money.

4. Repay according to the schedule and try not to be late (read about overdue repayments here).

It’s easy, isn’t it?

Guitar Man

Monday, 03 December 2018 18:21

Everybody has at least one talent and some people have more than one. Sometimes the talent is hidden and sometimes it’s obvious. One person is good with numbers, another with drawing, and another with housekeeping. Unfortunately, not everybody knows what their talent is.

Jimmy had a talent for writing music and playing the guitar. But he was young and not yet aware of his talent. He just wanted to play, so he played, and, luckily, he was good at it. There was one small problem: he didn’t have a good guitar. He did have a guitar, but after he’d played a really high-end guitar at a music store, he couldn’t even look at his cheap, hand-me-down guitar anymore, let alone play it. After trying the music store guitar, his guitar seemed different: the strings felt too hard, and the guitar (V-shaped, as if it was from the 80’s) suddenly appeared ridiculous. Jimmy couldn’t afford to buy a quality instrument, but he still really wanted to play.

So Jimmy started to regularly visit the music store. He would pretend to be sampling the guitars, but he was actually just playing his music and never planning on a purchase. The salesman, by the name of Dirk, quickly understood what Jimmy was doing, but he let him do it anyway. In fact, if buyers entered the store, Dirk recommended Jimmy as someone who could demonstrate the merits of each particular instrument. And Jimmy had a good time doing so.

Another regular visitor of the music store was Bruce. Bruce was skeptical of the music that Jimmy composed and played. He believed that all the good stuff had been written and played in the 60’s and 70’s, and that everything since then was just a footnote. Jimmy didn’t really argue his case; he just wanted his music to be heard.

One day Bruce walked into the store and saw that Jimmy was sad about something. Jimmy was playing some slow, mournful tune with open chords.

"What’s wrong with him?" Bruce asked Dirk.

“I don’t know. He’s been like that for two hours,” Dirk said.

"Hey, buddy!" Bruce said, turning to Jimmy. "We sell instruments here, not coffins. What are you trying to do, scare everybody away?”

"Oh, sorry. I just thought…" Jimmy said, his voice trailing off.

“What’s going on?” Bruce asked.

"Well, there’s a guitar competition tomorrow. I’ve been practicing, I’m already for it. I’d like to play my stuff, but…”

"But what?" Bruce. asked

“I don’t have a good guitar,” Jimmy replied sadly.

"What’s the problem?" Bruce exclaimed and turned to Dirk. "Let the kid have a guitar for a day!"

"Do you want to get me fired?" Dirk asked. "If you want to help him so bad, you buy him a guitar."

“I don’t know him as well as you do,” Bruce said weakly.

“There’s a cash prize if you’re in the top three,” Jimmy said. "If I win, I can pay you back."

"Well, do you believe in yourself?" Bruce asked. "Are you ready to fight for it?"

"Of course!" Jimmy shouted.

"Good. That’s the attitude you need to win," Bruce said. "Come over here. I'll show you where you can get the money."

Jimmy walked over and Bruce showed him. Jimmy went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money. Dirk ceremonially handed Jimmy the chosen guitar.

Bruce and Dirk went to the guitar competition and cheered Jimmy on. And it was not for nothing: Jimmy got first.

Of course, Bruce thought that all the music in the competition was second-rate and that none of the competitors had done anything really new. Dirk, meanwhile, praised himself for being careful with the store’s merchandise and for virtuously holding onto Jimmy’s instrument until the act of payment. As for Jimmy, he was just happy that he had two new friends.

Many people think that financial comfort can only be attained through hard work and saving money. That may be true, but imagine how much time and effort that would take! And even if you had the energy and patience to pull it off, would you still be able to have fun, travel, try new job opportunities, develop new hobbies, or start a family? That’s where quick loans come in.

1. Take Out A Payday Loan and Continue Saving Money

How exactly? Well, don’t simply break your piggybank because you need a little extra money. Save the amount you usually save, take out a payday loan from a reliable online loan company, and then pay back the loan with your next paycheck. This way you can continue saving money without losing out on opportunities or joys!

2. Develop New Sources of Income

Find opportunities to invest in. Maybe you’re not sure if the investment is worth it, but you really want to try and they’re not asking that much anyway. Well, take out a fast loan and then pay the loan back with the money you might get from your investment!

3. Find Ways to Earn More

Passive income is not the only way to get a little more. Sign up for interesting online courses and tutorials, learn a new language, develop your professional skills, and pay for it all with money you borrow from an online loan company. As an added benefit, rapid loans can improve your credit history (read here How can short term loans improve your credit history?). And who knows how it will all pay off in the future!

4. Additional Financial Comfort

Financial comfort also means being able to get the money you need anywhere and at anytime, whether you’re on a cruise down the Nile or if it’s a federal holiday. And you can do all this and more when you take out quick loans from trustworthy online companies.

Everything is possible! Start feeling financially comfortable ASAP.

Space Opera

Monday, 26 November 2018 15:47

"The starship shuddered at the unexpected impact of a meteorite. The Pilot wiped the sweat from his forehead. Just then, the emergency sirens began to wail.”

Jake paused, and then leaned back in his chair and began to think. Having never been on a spaceship, he had no idea what would happen onboard one after a direct impact from a meteorite. He didn’t know what to write. His hands hurt a little. He had been writing for several hours straight. Well, a break might be good, he thought. So he got up and went over to the kitchen.

Long, long ago, Jake had decided to become a writer. And not just a writer, but a successful and famous writer who composed mainly in the field of science fiction. By the time he had begun work on this future masterpiece, he had already written several short stories that he had proudly showed to friends and family. He’d heard “It's nice” a few times and he’d decided to interpret that ambiguous statement positively. However, one friend had been more direct and asked him, "What’s the point?"

Jake wrote that friend off as a philistine.

He ate pretzels out of a bag and tried to imagine what would happen onboard a spaceship after such an accident. But when the bag was empty, he still didn’t know what to do, so he decided to ask for help.

"Who can help?" – that was the question. He called some friends who had said his stories were “nice,” but they all turned out to be “very busy” and unable at present to discuss hypothetical astrophysical problems. However, there was one person left: Bruce, the same Bruce who had asked him: "What’s the point?"

Jake dialed Bruce’s number and when Bruce answered the phone, Jake said, “Bruce, you’re my only hope.”

Bruce listened while Jake explained the problem, and after Jake was done, Bruce paused and then asked: "Is this meteorite part important to the story?"

"Well, not really," Jake said, reluctantly.

"Then skip it. Write something like, 'A few hours later, the Pilot entered the cantina.’"

"Brilliant!" Jake exclaimed. "Can I call you back if I get stuck again?"

"Sure. I can always say I’m too busy to talk."

Jake rushed back to his computer.

The spaceship landed on a very unusual and previously unknown planet, which looked a lot like Earth. Jake still hadn’t figured out in what way the planet would be strange, but he decided that it would be like Earth in at least one respect: almost all problems on this planet would stem from lack of money. And the hero of the story did not have enough money.

Jake thought of different ways the hero might get money. Theft, robbery – those wouldn’t work. His hero was a good guy. And finding a bag of money wouldn’t work either. Things like that didn’t even happen in fiction. What could he do?

Jake called Bruce again and posed the problem.

"So this planet is a lot like ours?” Bruce asked.

“Yeah,” Jake said.

“Then how about…” and Bruce explained in great deal what Jake should write.

"Wow. You have no idea how much you’ve helped!" Jake exclaimed.

Jake ran back to his computer and started typing:

"The Pilot went to https://ezrapidloan.com/ completed the application form, and got the money. Now he could repair his starship and head off in search of new adventures.”

Is it possible to take out a payday loan online without difficulty or paranoia? Of course it is. But first you have to find a trustworthy online loan company. That’s what reviews and ratings are there for. But maybe you have some other concerns about online loan companies. Let’s examine some popular myths about them.

Myth 1: I Can Borrow The Maximum Amount The First Time

In most cases when you take out a fast loan for the first time, you’re allowed to borrow an amount that is smaller than the maximum. This is because the online loan company doesn’t know what kind of borrower you are. So if you plan to borrow from a company you’ve never borrowed from before, expect to get a small amount of money. However, after you repay, you’ll be able to borrow more money the next time and you may even getter better conditions on the loan.

Myth 2: Credit History Matters, I Shouldn’t Even Try

You should definitely try! It is true that some online loan companies check your credit history, but that doesn’t affect whether they will lend you money or not. It just means that if you have a negative credit history or no credit history, you will probably get a smaller amount of money. Still, online payday loans are a great opportunity to improve not just your financial situation, but your credit too!

Myth 3: My Loan Is Small, I Can Avoid Repayment

Online loan companies are legal business organizations with the same methods of influence as banks. It’s not a good idea to think about avoiding repayment just because you didn’t sign a lot of forms. Online agreements are protected by law. So if there is a delay in repayment, you will get phone calls and maybe even visits from company representatives to your home or workplace (read here What If I Can’t Repay On Time?). Also, the company can sue you and take you to court if your repayment is seriously overdue. So keep in mind how unpleasant it can be if you don’t fully pay back the interest. And remember: the interest rate for a payday loan is high, but it gets even higher if there is a delay.

Ask yourself the following questions:

• Do I really need the loan right now?

• Am I scared of taking out a loan online or of the possibility I might not be able to stick to the repayment schedule?

• Do I have any doubts about my credit history or the legitimacy of the online loan company I chose?

• Is it really so difficult to deal with online financial businesses?

Think carefully and make your decision.
