Youth & Money?

As a young adult, one of the biggest challenges I face is learning how to be responsible with money. I don’t know how to do this, I’ve never had my own money before or things to pay for. As a kid, if you wanted to do something it would go one of both ways, either your parents would give you money to go to what you wanted or it was time to get creative and have fun for four hours with whatever you had in your garage. So here’s the dilemma now, I’m still young and want to do things but my parents no longer give me money for that (which isn’t expected), but having ”garage fun” isn’t really a thing at my age or even that much of a thing for kids in 2017. Everyone at my age is always wanting to go out and do things, whereas most things cost money now. Now we face a decision of whether or not we want to use the money to enjoy being young or try to save it in hopes of eventually making more money for our futures. Like everything else in life, the solution is to have the right balance of both. I guess balancing your money is easier said than done but one step I am going to take in attempts to have a better balance is finding out what I want to support with my money, and only spend my money on products and other things that I support. That’s how I plan on saving a little bit more money, how do you save your money? Do you have any fun activities that don’t cost any money?

Birthdays

So some of you may know this already but just this past weekend I turned nineteen, and now I’m sitting here in front of my laptop and not much has changed except for the fact that I’ve now experienced what spending too much money on one drink is like. This entire weekend I was really trying to summarize my thoughts around birthdays and what they are, and what they mean to me. After all the time I spent thinking and pondering on the subject I’ve realized a few things. Even though as we get older we may not get as excited for our birthdays like we did as children, but when our birthdays roll around all we want is to feel special by getting a little bit more attention than usual. Which makes sense though because society has built an entire industry around birthdays and other similar types of events. We all think that there are things that we have to do or that we’re supposed to do when it’s our birthdays. Which isn’t true, birthdays are just a day where you get to look back on yourself and see how far you’ve progressed. Essentially see what you have done in a years time. As humans, we’re fortunate to be able to live as many years as we do and this should be taken advantage of. Give yourself a reason to celebrate on your birthday every year because if you don’t then it’s just another day. Potentially a sad one at that.

Progression

So I just recently started putting myself out on the internet vloging and bloging, and so far it`s been great. Yeah it`s a few more things on the to do list everyday but that`s a good thing because I`m being productive and doing things that I like to do, it`s a two birds one stone kind of situation. I`m currently 18 years old and will be turning 19 shortly. So right now I have enough life to look back on and see how much I have already progressed while still having so much time to continue to do things and further progress. It`s very exiting and also a little bit scary. Since I started being more productive and producing original content on some of the great platforms 2017 has to offer, tracking my progression has become something I look forward to everyday. I started doing all this with hopes that it would help me figure myself out a bit more, and so far it`s been working. I`m definitely feeling a lot more confidence in myself and I`m also supper exited to see more progression in my self esteem as I continue to unwrap myself on the internet. As always thanks to all my readers and until next time stay alert and stay safe.
