Money, money, money, money, money. Money is the root of all evil. And financial woes. Especially financial woes …
What’s going on, friend-o’s? Hope you’re all enjoying sun! And if it’s not sunny in your nation today, or your space station doesn’t have it’s Virtua-Weather system set on ‘Balmy Summer’s Day’ mode, then I hope you enjoy the future sun.
Today, I would like to blog about a particular topic that plagues many late teens/early adults that are still wet behind the ears, emerging from the flowing ravine of high school life and into the dry dullness of civilisation. And that subject is money.
Now money, as you all know, is pretty darn cool. It can be used for all sorts of goods and services. It can also be used to buy said goods as presents for your lovely girlfriend/boyfriend or, if you don’t have one of those, your friends. Or if you don’t have those, your dog! But money is something that is rather absent in a young Australian teen/young adult’s life. Especially mine, since I study full-time and work no job.
Lately, I’ve been needing to replace things. The jeans I’ve worn for a good four years now, riddled with tiny tears and rips around the knee, are in need of a replacement. The phone that I’ve used for six years keeps crashing and freezing as most apps that I indulge in on a regular basis are no longer compatible with it’s outdated OS. And that bloody Xbox One needs to go the fuck away and replace itself with a brand spanking new Playstation 4 instead. And I sorta need a console at this point, simply because the thing that I play my games on is normally the thing that I also watch DVDs and stream YouTube clips on as well. Unless it’s my Wii U … zing!
Furthermore, the prospect of future student debt and potential loans also chills me to the bone and freaks me the fuck out. I am sitting there, late at night, worrying that my potential future funds and spending habits might render me bankrupt!
Anyways, I am off to take a good long sigh. Hope you all have a wonderful week!
