Since I’m in the midst of moving (in the virtual sense), I thought I might share this fun article by Anyvan with you guys. Gotta give these moving companies credit for the wacky names. If you want to move with a twist, you might want to give them a try!
If you are looking for something more than a run of the mill moving company then think about using one of these ones with interesting names. Whether you want to go with Pack Attack or One Big Man, One Big Truck, you can find everything you need with a little extra pizzazz to make your move that bit easier! Anyvan; the courier service comparison website showcases the following.
There are some hilariously named moving companies out there so if you are looking for help with your big move but want something a little different, you might want to think about one of these. Whether you want to go with the Sultans of Schlep or the Puma Moving Company you can find high quality moving services with a little something extra to lighten the load on you.
These are some of the top most ridiculous names for moving companies but nonetheless, these companies have been in the business a long time and have many satisfied customers. For example, with services such as One Big Man and One Big Truck you can get moving for small offices, you can get help loading or unloading your rental truck or you can get help moving into one, two or three bedroom apartments. With One Big Man and One Big Truck you can rely on a company which has been in business since 1983 and can offer you a comprehensive service alongside the owner’s friendly and personal nature. The company has now earned a strong reputation and seeks to change the perception of the moving industry thanks to its simplicity and honesty.
Two Hunks in a Truck is another moving company with a ridiculous name but which is nonetheless a popular choice. The company is known for efficiency and for offering to work for a reasonable hourly rate. They are reliable and strongly recommended by many companies as they not only wrap your furniture for the move but are considerate in carrying your fragile goods as well as heavy goods upstairs for you. The company is quick and resourceful so that you get a cost effective and caring service.
With Puma Moving you can get another service which offers a full line of moving and packing services despite it’s rather ‘out there’ name. The company is customised to fit whatever moving needs you have. They can do a small move of only a few items as well as a full furniture move from your own home to a new one. You can get a top notch service which has a range of offerings so that it can be tailored. You can get protection for your personal belongings so that you can have a smooth move. Puma has air ride trucks and full moving equipment, which, coupled with its highly trained staff, means that you can get the best deal.
With Puma you can get residential moving services such as delivery of moving supplies before the big day and free wardrobe boxes. You can also get free blankets to cover your furniture and no extra charge if you want to move on the weekend or other holidays. You can also be sure that you will get prompt pickup, transport and unloading of belongings from whatever location you are moving from to your new destination. This company also offers long distance moving as well as piano moving and commercial moves so you can get sorted for anything you need.
If you are looking for a moving company with a ridiculous name which has something different about it then you might think about Pack Attack. This company is experienced, trustworthy and reliable and is operated by women. The company serves a diverse community and it also offers many services such as organising and de-cluttering for you as well as packing and unpacking with full moving co-ordination to take the weight off your mind. The company has serviced over 1,000 homes and is still growing in popularity thanks to its comprehensive services.
Permit Puller is another company which is popular among those moving home, offering help with saving space for moving. You can get city-issued temporary ‘No Parking’ signs from this site and it means that you can get a space reserved in front of your door when you need it most. This means that your move can be more streamlined with better access to your property for less stress. With Permit Puller you can get a simple, web based interface which requests permits in less than a minute so that you don’t have to wait in line or fill out forms. This service makes all the arrangements for you so that you don’t have to stress and they hang the signs in advance of your moving day. This means that on moving day you have little to think about except the task at hand, so you can make the most of your experience.

Thanks always for reading this little blog of mine. Really.

1 out of 10 students drop out of school because of bullying.
Bullying is not acceptable. If you’re a victim, please, do not suffer in silence. Find someone to talk to. Do not be ashamed of it. There is nothing embarrassing about it. Get help. It’s hard to believe, but there is always something better in this world. There are good people out there who’s willing to lend you a listening ear. Some people often think that bullying concerns just the victim alone. Unfortunately, families suffer, as well. The journey is a difficult one, and sufferers may find themselves feeling hopeless and suicidal. The scariest thing in the world is not having any purpose in your life. Some people blame it on teenage angst, what do you think? The truth about bullies? They’re having a miserable life. They have insecurities and low self esteem. Somehow bullying makes them have a sense of power. Please think twice and look at yourself. Be kind, put yourselves in their shoes. Words and actions kill. Below is a detailed account of the journey of parenting a bullied kid. I urge everyone to take the time to read it.
Let this nightmare stop.
The Journey of Parenting a Bullied Child
Parenting a bullied child can be traumatizing and make a parent eventually feel like a victim themselves. I found a research article that was recently released describing the journey of 11 parents who had bullied children. Each of these parents went through a similar journey.
The process of discovering that the child was bullied happened in different ways. Sometimes the child told the parents directly that they were having serious problems a school. Other times it was discovered through unusual behaviour. For example, one little girl started kicking her cat that she loved. This was a big red flag for the parents.
The normal next step was to give the child advice about how to manage the situation. Some of the advice given was to be nice to the bully, to avoid the bully, or confront the bully. None of the parents advised a physical altercation. Unfortunately, for the parents in this sample the advice did not work. This is not to say that advice doesn’t work for all parents. I would expect that if advice had worked these parents wouldn’t have been part of this study.
As bullying continued or escalated these parents began to report their concern to the school officials. The parents generally first called the school receptionist who directed them to the school counsellor. Unfortunately, these parents found that the school counsellor, while sometimes appearing very concerned, was not effective. Normally the parents did not get a call back and later found out that the higher administration had not been informed and no action had been taken. When they pushed farther, the general experience was that school officials indicated that their “hands were tied.”
One parent in the study actually had a good response. The principal investigated the case by interviewing the children involved and then took action by having the children apologize. The principal also informed the teacher who also intervened by explaining why the behaviour was wrong and asking the children to report any further misbehaviour. The parents in this case felt that the action was appropriate and well done. They did not have further problems. Unfortunately, this was not the experience of most of the parents in the study.
Most of the parents, in the end, were left to manage the situation on their own. They found that the more they complained the more their child was thought of as a “problem”. Some of the parents found that moving their child to an out-of-district school was the best solution. Some others began home-schooling. Unfortunately, some of the parents didn’t have the financial or personal resources to take action and had to watch their children suffer years of abuse. These parents described themselves as feeling victimized themselves. One parent described their experience as being a “living hell.” The researchers were surprised by the amount of emotion that was expressed during interviews. One parent, who was surprised by how strong her emotions still were, cut off contact with the researchers after the first interview.
The researchers from this study recommended that parents take action when their children were being bullied. They encouraged parents to continue to go to higher authorities, like the superintendent or school board, until action is taken.
This study aimed to deeply describe the experience of 11 parents. This may not be your experience or even be representative of most parents who have a child who is bullied. However, these experiences have lessons to teach all of us on the difficulty parents can face when their children are bullied and the importance of parents being vigilant, because sometimes schools aren’t there when our children need them.

The novel lacks conviction. I’m reeling in shock as Summer Sisters by Judy Blume currently holds a 3.8 rating on goodreads. Commonplace characters set in a weak plot: natural disaster. A heavy emphasis on the characters’ teenage years, the story has potential, but failed miserably. Tawdry. So skip it.
Two unlikely friends said this to a young lion,
It means no worries.
Sitted on the puffy cloud, Dorian thought to himself that anything is possible.

Life is a beautiful lie. Death is a painful truth. Who is this girl lying on the beach, and will she live?
p.s: I wrote a short story (inspired by Susan Cain’s Quiet) on wattpad. If you guys could leave me some feedback, I would really appreciate it!
This is the current state of my bedroom (minus the bed and wardrobe):
The only thing that stands out is the world map bought from Cats Socrates. Something I’ve grown rather proud of. So when Ubert from PAINTASTIC Art Craft offered to give me 2 sets of mini paintings to try out, I was ecstatic. I initially declined as I felt bad, but he insisted. If my memory serves me right, I literally thanked him a dozen times. With no further ado, let’s take a closer look at these paint by number kits, shall we?
First up, a screenshot of PAINTASTIC Art Craft official website:
The reason why I’m excited is the price. Large paintings cost less than a hundred bucks! Even if you’re not skilled in painting, these handy kits are bound to help you acheive stunning artworks.
The paints are non-toxic and environmental. Extra brownie points! Oh and kids, if you’re reading this: please do not eat them.
This is the back of the canvas.
It’s painting like this where you want to poke yourself in the eye. Why did I choose this? Why didn’t I pick the easier one? Confession: I was a tad worried when I saw this. This wasn’t easy; required a lot of patience and coordination. Luckily, I had this.
I used my own brush (bigger one) for the background. Tip #1: Might be useful if you have your own brushes as well.
Save the background for last. Never mind the smudges, for the white paint is going to save your artwork.
Tip #2: Close the caps until you hear a click sound. Being a nitwit as usual, I found out that one of the paints got dry. I then mixed white paint with the pink one. It went well.
My first try, so I think I did well enough! This took me approximately three days, as I was busy with school assignments. This oriental painting is not perfect, but perfect for me.
Ubert picked this for me.
I have to come clean and admit that I’m not a sucker for cute stuffs, but I was won over. Recommended for children! I took about 2-3 hours to complete this painting.
Tip #3: To achieve better effect, apply additional coating.
Special thanks to Ubert for these creative paintings! If you would like to purchase these art crafts, visit PAINTASTIC for more info!
