Two More Hours Then It’s Either Music or Two Person Beach Volleyball

The job working for the HVAC business is also a workout so I think I am getting ample exercise each week between the sports and the job

I have basically two groups of friends; musicians and performers, and sports enthusiasts. Both are tugging me to come play with them but I only have so much time and energy. I love doing both volleyball and singing but each of them takes a lot of energy and I can only do one at a time. I also drum when I sing, which is really a lot of work on the shoulders, and it leaves me sore the next day and unable to play volleyball. I also have to work on HVAC equipment, mainly cleaning and servicing systems at home, and I need to have strong shoulders to do that work too. So I can only really play ball or drums twice a week as I need some time off to rest my shoulders. I have to carry HVAC condensers and compressors up many flights of stairs so I need to be fresh for work when the time comes. I workout a few times a week, along with daily 15 minute yoga sessions and cold swims in the sea to keep my body strong and intact. The job working for the HVAC business is also a workout so I think I am getting ample exercise each week between the sports and the job. I probably need to actually rest more than I do but something keeps pushing me to do more, maybe it is my restless childlike spirit that wants to keep running. I just need to save energy for the local contractor who helps keep a roof over my head and food on the plate.

Going to do An Hour of Deep Meditation Soon

I have been dabbling in meditation a bit more now as I am back to my quieter and slower life here overseas.

I didn’t have the time when I was visiting the states because there was just a lot more going on over there. I was doing a lot of driving and also a lot of HVAC equipment service and repairs as I am a certified HVAC specialist and my family often has me working on their units when I am back to visit. They pay me to do it so it works out great for all of us because they know me and probably pay me a bit more than they would pay a normal company because we are relatives. They know that besides doing HVAC system servicing I have been doing comedy and music for the past twenty years and it didn’t exactly make me a millionaire just yet. I just do it for the love of it and sometimes you have to starve to feed the world. Playing music feeds my soul and helps others, like the guy from the HVAC company who comes to listen, and that makes me feel even happier. I think if I practice a few more years on the drums I will be good enough to play in clubs and bars for money. We have a few local businesses interested in our music and if we get it together soon we will be able to play in some of them in the next few months. The winter season is coming and it will be good to play inside.

The Quality of Life and the Air Quality are so Good Here

We stay pretty busy with all of the local customers and even get calls in the big city to come work on commercial heating systems there, which pays us a lot more money but is a long trip to get to and from

I’ve lived in some big cities in my life and they all seem to be loud and smelly. I really don’t like big cities anymore because of that and prefer to live by the sea in a small town. I was living in BCN on the Spanish coast but the thieves and drunks were too much for me to handle so I moved south about 45 minutes by train to a small town of only 25,000 people. I work at a cooling technology store part time and teach volleyball the rest of my time. It is a bit loud here right now as it is summer and a lot of those “citiots” come here from that big town and visit our cute little town. I don’t mind though because during the week it is quiet again and we can rest till the weekend comes around again. Also, in the winter a lot of local businesses are closed, except for the HVAC company I work at which specializes in heating equipment service during the winters. We stay pretty busy with all of the local customers and even get calls in the big city to come work on commercial heating systems there, which pays us a lot more money but is a long trip to get to and from. It all works out and then summer rolls around again for another round of tourists and beach fun. We sell a lot of mini split air conditioners and portable AC units in the summer, mainly to people coming in from other countries for the summer.

Life is About Taking Chances and Challenging Ourselves

They say old age comes when we have nothing more to look forward to.

I know that not challenging myself and pushing my boundaries gets me stuck in ruts that seem to drain the life energy out of me, cooling down my soul to the point where I feel depressed.

So, I also know that I need to push myself just a little bit each day to get out of my comfort zone and try new things, heating up my soul once again and giving me that lifeforce. Talking to a stranger and making a friend is one good way for me to get out of my comfort zone so I try to do it each day when the timing feels right. My job for the cooling and heating store gets me talking to new people every day basically but I don’t count that as me pushing my boundaries because it is just work related idle chat I’m talking about when I am out on the streets and seeing people who might interest me to talk to. That little voice in my head is always trying to boss me around and tell me who I should and shouldn’t talk to and I am tired of listening to it. The HEPA filter salesman job does help me practice my communication skills with others so that does help me out in the long run when it comes time to talk to a stranger. I just want to be nice to people and be a friend because it feels good to have friends.

Thank You HVAC Company for All You’ve Given Me

I am still grateful for the HVAC company I once ran many years ago.

I appreciated and admired the company so much that I got an FBI tattoo, which are the initials of my business, on my left shoulder to remind me of my accomplishment. I was able to buy several houses from the money I made with that company and chase my comedic dream, which led me to live a life overseas in a town that I love. So when I see this FBI tattoo it reminds me of how my choices shape my life and the power of dreaming of what is possible. If I didn’t take the chance and start my own HVAC business I could have been stuck in my office job till now. That local business of mine gave me the freedom to live the life I am living now and the ability to chase my crazy dreams all over the world. I’ve performed in front of the quiet and shy Finnish people, the obnoxious NYC crowds, and the wild and young Spanish audiences. I’ve been in clubs without heating or cooling in the most extreme weather and had my car stolen at one of the shows I was doing. It’s been a cool experience though doing standup for 17 years across the world and I have my HVAC equipment sales and service company to thank for all of those memories. I still enjoy reading about the industry and seeing the latest technology coming out but as far as running my own company again that is now just a memory, albeit a great one at that.

A Cup of Tea and A Good Book by a Fire

It’s sad that he has to wait till he is almost 70 years old to do so because a lot of his life energy will be gone by then

I just enjoy the simple things like a cup of tea and a good book by a fire during a cold cloudy winter day. A nice popping small fire in a fireplace would be nice and maybe even some incense burning in the background with my lovely lady snuggled next to me lost in her favorite novel. That doesn’t cost much to have yet gives me so much joy, and I am lucky I can do so working part time for the HVAC company near me. I like being semi-retired, as I have been for over twenty years now, as it gives me a chance to live life while I am still young. I somehow managed to semi-retire at age 32 and it has allowed me the time to do a lot of things I otherwise could not have done had I been shackled down to a full time job and family obligations like most of my friends. My one friend who is a local contractor told me that when he retires he is going to live just like I am now. It’s sad that he has to wait till he is almost 70 years old to do so because a lot of his life energy will be gone by then. We all make choices in life and he chose to run a successful HVAC business, allowing him to have endless spending money and all kinds of toys. But he doesn’t have the freedom that I have and I think freedom is the most important thing for happiness. We all make sacrifices though.

Got My New Electric Heating System and Ready for Winter

Summer is winding down and the tourists will all be leaving in a few weeks.

Usually by the beginning of September most people leave town and go back to their normal working lives again.

It’s nice because summer can be very crowded here and the change of pace is refreshing and healing for the soul. I like having people here, but after many months of it I get quite burned out and I feel like I need some time alone to rest. A lot of the local businesses shut down here in the winter because it is so slow, so this town becomes a ghost town more or less when winter comes. I work at the HVAC company during the winter mainly answering phone calls for service requests or helping people with questions about their smart thermostats or HVAC systems. I only work about 20 hours a week during the winter at the store and spend the rest of my week chilling on the beach or teaching yoga to a few private clients. I make just enough money to pay my bills so I need to keep my HVAC system use to a minimum when possible to save on electric bills. I may get a flatmate this winter and see how it goes because I could cut my living expenses down to under $1000 a month if I did so and alleviate some of the stress of trying to pay my bills each month. I have a new central heat and air conditioner and a nice big flat, so it should be easy to find a flatmate.

I used a plumber to replace my broken garbage disposal

So, he called Rob to make an appointment for him to maintenance the garbage disposal, and rob was able to come to my home the next afternoon

My bestie is an IT guru, so I never have to worry about any issues with my electronic devices, but over the years, he has programmed everything for me. For instance, when I got my Smart thermostat, he affixed it to all my devices; Similarly, when I got my doorbell cam, he set it up & affixed it to my PC, Wi-Fi & tablet, and best of all, I always have the latest software & upgrades on my devices. And they are loaded with all kinds of apps to make my life easier, but i like that he is able to do all of that because I wouldn’t be able to figure it out on my own, however while my bestie is tech savvy, he is not savvy when it comes to fixing things in his condo. When he had a leaky faucet, he contacted a plumber to have them maintenance it, however he didn’t have a plumber on hand, so he searched for plumbing maintenance near myself and others on the internet. He ended up finding a guy named Rob & he has used him ever since for all his plumbing needs. When my garbage disposal stopped laboring, I called my bestie to help myself and others with it. He came over & looked at it for a few hours & instantly decided that he needed to call his plumber. So, he called Rob to make an appointment for him to maintenance the garbage disposal, and rob was able to come to my home the next afternoon. After he inspected the unit, he determined that it had a burned out motor & needed to be replaced, but every one of us bought a current unit that afternoon & the plumber was able to install it for me.

Chainsaws as well as Air Purifying Systems all At Work Today

I hear a chainsaw ripping down trees in the background as well as I am trying to drown out the noise with our whole beach house air purifying system.

The saw has been going for a couple of minutes now as well as I don’t want to see which tree they took down with it as all of us don’t have more than 2 trees left in this town.

The local corporations are growing as well as they are building a lot more flats around town, which tells me that our tired little neighborhood won’t be tired or little much longer. I moved here after getting a job at the Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C company as well as truly liked how small as well as quaint it is here. I know that is all going to change though because I have noticed there are more as well as more people moving here. My Heating, Ventilation, as well as A/C rep told me that company has been booming for them because of all of the new construction going on, however he also said he doesn’t love how crowded the streets as well as stores are becoming. I’m on the same page as him as well as if it gets too crowded here then all of us will absolutely transfer again to another smaller neighborhood as well as start over. At least the local corporations are doing well. I need to buy a HEPA filter this week at the local businesss store because mine is pretty much shot. I want to get a washable 1 so hopefully they have those in stock. I don’t work at that store though as well as our store doesn’t carry any HEPA filters at all, so I absolutely won’t be getting the employee discount there.
