Rescued from a life of crime by stwristbands nowrangersVacation Destination: Memphis, Tennessee I like to visit with my friends and I like to cook and when I put these two things together it is called a party. I have never thought of myself as an event planner but I do love to plan parties at my home and I have become quite efficient at it. Trust me I am no Martha Stewart and lets face it most of us are not. The important thing is do what you love. If you want a theme party do it, and if you want an intimate dinner then have at it. You are in the driver"s seat. The important piece is to plan. Never be afraid of too much planning but do not let the planning take away the fun. Stay flexible. Music travels to California must be during the mid of April. This is because the month of April is when the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival takes place. It is a festival wristbands that is conducted every year, and a lot of music lovers pool in during the month of April to be a part of this event. The duration of this festival wristbands is three days. Yes, three days is a very short time, but still there are such crazy music lovers for whom every second of their favorite band counts. Rock, hip hop, indie, pop and so on are the genres that you get to enjoy if you are successful in journeying to California during the month of April. This is about the big picture of creating a healthy, happy lifestyle here. It"s not always going sport wristbands to look exactly the way we think it should. As long as it"s healthy overall, then cool it with the stress and guilt. That kind of thinking will create its own negative health consequences. WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE YOUR EVENT? Location is usually the area of the least control. Some locations require a reservation a year in advance, so you can not wait until the last minute. Researching locations 18 - 24 months in advance may help relieve a lot of stress early on. I you are having the party at your house then you just need to deal with the family. So weigh your odds early on! If you are like most people buying event wristbands (or armbands or bracelets) for an event, you want to be sure they"ll help you let the right people into a venue and that they"ll keep the wrong people out. WHO ARE YOU GOING TO INVITE? Your guest list will be the determining factor in almost every decision that you have to make while planning your party. If you have to rent a location for your event you will need one large enough to hold all of your guests. The number of people you have will determine the amount of food, how many chairs and the number of gift bags to prepare if that will be part of you event. So sit down and make a list of potential guests. Wherever your Labor Day weekend plans take you, be careful on the road. Holiday traffic will be heavy and there"s construction around town and across the state.
I was 9 years old when my mother left our family in Yumuzhai, a village in Hubei province, which is surrounded by mountains. We were very poor because there was very little suitable farmland on the mountain slopes. We regarded rice as luxury food because it was only available for a few months after the harvest. We ate corn most of the time.
During my schooldays, I never ate lunch, because we had no food. Sometimes, I couldn"t bear the hunger so I stole radishes and sweet potatoes from the fields to eat.
My father had obtained a loan of 200 yuan ($31) from the bank to raise goats and he was always in debt. I didn"t even finish grade 2 of primary school because I had to drop out and help him.
Often during Spring Festival holidays, I buried myself under a blanket and cried. I asked myself why I should pay all the money I made to the bank instead of spending it on a good dinner.
When I was 12, I decided to leave home, and traveled to Guangdong province. My first job was raising ducks on a farm, making 300 yuan a month. I was short and thin, so the boss accepted me on condition that I was only paid half the amount the adults received.
I often thought about my poor family. I felt hopeless and quickly gave up hope.
At age 16, I moved to Jiangsu province, where I joined a gang of thieves. When the 10-strong gang was stealing, I was the lookout. We didn"t work, so when we ran out of money we began stealing again.
Fighting was another big part of my life at that time. We often fought with people if they bullied our friends. Sometimes, we started a fight simply because we didn"t like someone. I was once detained for two weeks after taking part in a gang fight.
I stayed with the gang for more than 18 months. I finally left thanks to the efforts of two kind-hearted men who often urged me to quit. One of them told me I should try to be a good man to give my father peace of mind for the rest of his days.
I can"t imagine what my life would be like if I hadn"t met them; I would probably be in jail. I still keep in touch with one of them.
In 2008, I returned to Yumuzhai to help my father. He died in 2013. Lacking any skills, I followed in his footsteps and raised goats for a living, but it wasn"t profitable so I sold all 120 goats in September.
Now, I take temporary jobs as a construction worker. After Lunar New Year, I plan to leave Yumuzhai again to look for work. Lacking education, I often feel helpless about changing my life, but I want to make an effort to guarantee my two children a good education.
Today is one of the happiest days of my life because I have finally had the opportunity to say the words that have been hidden in my heart for 30 years. I am extremely relieved.
