1. Beach Bum
I’ve had to move again for the 4th time in 2 years. I was placed on academic probation and denied my financial aid. I transitioned to part time because I thought I was going to continue going to school, leaving me broke and frustrated.
I’ve been trying to find a job these last months with no luck. I’ve been feeling hopeless and the future seems very unclear. Everyone says I should stay in school and “study something” but what if that “something” is not what I like?
Just-a-while-ago, I was stuck studying a career I didn’t enjoy. I ended up wasting two years of my life already. So now I’m left with the ultimate question that any new budding adult is asking themself…” what do you want to be in life?”
I’m in something I define as the worldy limbo. I’m not losing a job but I’m not gaining one either. I’m trying to find out what I’m good at and what I’m interested in and pursuing that. I’m re-visiting hobbies I enjoyed such as cooking/baking, anime, planning (event planner/volunteering), and budgeting (financial planning).
So I would like to mention that I am now a volunteer for the South Florida SuperCon!
Bring a List: Writing down what you have already decided you need helps you stay focused and prevents you from buying things you want… but don’t actually need.
Use Apps: Apps like Ibotta or Walmart Savings Catcher help you get money back on purchases. Snap a picture of your receipt and you are good to go!
Budget: Establishing a monthly budget (whether on paper or mentally) of what you think you should be spending on groceries, can help you stay in control of your spending. Try limiting the amount of times you have to go to the grocery store.
According to their website, “As if getting FREE ice cream doesn’t feel good enough, Carvel is partnering for the sixth year with The American Red Cross to spread good will in support of the charity’s annual Giving Day. While supplies last, Carvel will offer a $1 coupon book worth more than $20 in Carvel savings, with all proceeds contributing to Carvel’s donation to the American Red Cross. Including donations this year, total contributions to support disaster relief efforts will exceed $150,000.
Honestly, you are your worst enemy.
There is no one to blame for your decisions but yourself.
When there is something shi**y going on, don’t moan and groan about it. Take action!
Don’t close yourself from opportunities.
> Lately, I’ve been feeling bored. I wish I had more people to talk to. But I also close myself to opportunities. I realize that I’m the reason I feel shi**y sometimes. I reject hangouts but then wish I could of gone out. Well that all is going to change. Truthfully, being in a new relationship has changed me a little bit and I feel like I should stay “myself”. My boyfriend is totally on board with that. But I’M the one stopping myself from getting out there. I’m young, I still have a lot to do and stuff to explore.
> Sorry that it has been a while since I posted but it was because I wanted to post ideas for parents. A lot of readers have children and I just wanted to make it easier for your guys to have access to ideas.
