SuperCon Volunteer

These past few months have been weird…

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!

This has become a spark of hope that maybe I’m transitioning out of limbo…..

 

 

3 Ways I Got Freebies!

  • Trial Period. Things like gym memberships, amazon prime, and netflix have trial periods were you can receive service or products for free. Its free as long as you don’t pass the trial period.
  • Subscriptions on Your Birthday. Places like Sephora and Denny’s will give you free stuff on your birthday as long as you are subscribed to their emails.
  • Subscription Boxes. Goody boxes like Fabletics, Blue Apron and AdoreMe will give first time subscribers HUGE discounts for their products. I paid only $25 for a whole outfit from Kate Hudson. I paid $30 for a box of Blue Apron opposed to its regular price of $60 for 3 meals. I paid $25 for a bathing suit set that would of cost $50 at their regular price on AdoreMe.

 

I got inspired to share my experience from this video from BeatTheBush: How I Get All My Free Stuff.

 

 

 

How to Become a Grocery Master

The Financial Diet (TFD)  is a very fun and educational Youtube channel that gives you plenty of knowledge and ways to tackle-down everyday financial life.

 

My Additions:

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.

 

Please comment below on ways YOU master grocery shopping.

Lovely Life Reminder

Life Reminder:

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.

 

My Relatable Experience: You Totally Don’t Have to Read

> 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.
