Life without money

As much as I would like to be dripping in C notes, I’m not.

But heres the thing, I dont have expensive taste. I live paycheck to paycheck and it’s fine because i shop on the cheap always.

However, my addiction to traveling has left me wanting that lavish lifestyle. It’s forcing my mind to panic and like for money every where I turn.

I see now why people become strippers to fund school and if I was in shape I’d do it as well. But I’d also be terrible at it because I can’t dance.

Like at all. It’s a shame.

The need for a second job is pulling my down and making life hard.

Like every other self funded college student I must learn to push through.

Life has changed and I must adapt and change with it to survive.

My future

I question my life choices every day and wonder is it enough for me to be strong-willed and stubborn.

Money plays a large fact in everyday life and with me not being apart of the top 1%, I like everyone else has to work for a living.

Hmm, I am valued by how many hours I put in and how hard I slave away. Being a number in the system doesn’t sound fun to me.

Does anyone truly have a plan for the future? I’m spending thousands of dollar (or pounds) on a chance.

The possibility of a chance to be a writer or a PR agent. What a gamble.

*** Never drink people, this was in my drafts.

Travel on the cheap

Okay, so this part of life is extremely important. I always travel on the cheap and find that when I do it’s a better experience.

Airlines have a lot of cheap seats and they tend to be at their cheapest a few months in advance. Booking at least 3 months ahead helps.

When I do book in advance I think of it as this, buy now spend less and enjoy more.

Cheapest airlines are more than likely gonna be your local ones. So look at those first and save some time.

If all else fails, book 2 separate legs, meaning don’t book that super expensive flight check for one way connecting flights.

Once the flight is booked, you need to find a place to stay.

Like flights, hotels run deals and specials all year long. However, if you are wanting to save like I do, pick a hostel.

Hostel World is my go to for travelling. You pick a city and country then set your price range and they give you what’s available.

I have no problem sharing a room and most hostels have lockers so you have some security.

Food wise, I got smarter as I moved around. Most cities have community functions where food is provided, take advantage of that.

If you’re hard up for cash and need food, go to local spots, such as food markets or strips and bargain, trading items is still a thing.

Nine times out of ten, you end up on top.

I had to remember that things are free you just have to ask about them.

Anxiety Attack

I had a massive anxiety attack during an interview.

So if you don’t know, I’m in college studying journalism. Yay! However, it’s crazy hard and I’ve been struggling to keep up.

The professor says that I’m taking it to serious and that I’m not doing awful.

Apparently, my mind and body are not in agreement with him.

But I was out following a story and just walked into this man’s shop. Sweet man and he had no problem letting me interview him.

I have been told that I talk to much and need to let the person speak. Well I spoke during the interview and that completely screwed me.

I got a hot flash and my ears started to ring, I got lightheaded and could hear my heartbeat in my ear.

The stress, thought and fear of failure is trying to kill me.

I stood there and let this mental attack go on because I needed this shot. This interview was so needed that I would have given up without it.

University is so stressful and I didn’t realize how much my body was suffering.

It was definitely a kick in the ass.

Top five places I have to visit.

Okay, so this will more than likely change in the next 15 minutes but it’s worth a shot.

1: Cuba

I love the idea of going back in time but since that’s impossible I’ll settle for a country frozen in time. I want to see old cars and stand on the street that separates the rich from the poor. I want to eat outside and just take it all in.

 

2: Greece

Greece, Mykonos & Santorini, October 2018

This picture speaks for itself. I love water and countries surrounded by water make me so happy because I love the beach.

 

3: Morocco

Morocco, floatation, currency

I want a red house but a blue one will do as long as it close to the beach. I want to learn how to fish but I know that I don’t have that patience. Morocco is supposed to be cheap but at the same time have great quality in their products. So I want to shop and see a beach but at the meet new people.

 

4: South Korea

South Korea is a great place for an autumn holiday. There are plenty of spots to enjoy the fiery reds and oranges of fall, and have a taste of the country’s rich culture and tradition. This itinerary takes you in and around Seoul, then guides you to venture out into the countryside where you’ll see South Korea’s best spots for autumn.

They are known for their beauty, which is beyond me. I don’t know the first thing about makeup and wish I did but I have never been able to get the hang of it. Other than that, I want to sit outside and eat at one of those places that allows you to cook the meal.

 

5: Brazil

Honestly, this is because I want to see the difference between here and Cuba.

I want to go to a lot more countries but these are my top five, for now.

Planning vacations.

I have a 5 week vacation coming up mid- December but I’m stupid broke.

Like broke people see me and they look away trying not to show pity.

However, I have to be irresponsible and go somewhere, so when looking for inspiration I do what most people do and hit the internet.

There are so many places to visit and I cant imagine just picking one place, so I have to plan and plan and plan till I have it down to a tee.

My favorite source of planning and picking a place is Facebook. A page called Places You’ll See has shown me more places than I would have ever thought of.

Watching travel videos and going through pictures makes everything so surreal.

Traveler’s struggles

Okay, so I’ve been on this traveling journey for close to a year now.

I find that getting the time to travel and completing your at home responsibilities to be my biggest challenge.

This year, I’ve gone to Spain, France, the Netherlands and have now settled in England. The problem with that is that I now have to pay England living prices.

But not just that England university living prices.

For those that don’t know, England is expensive, not Singapore or Hong Kong expensive but up there. For every dollar I spend I cry a little inside.

Not being able to travel at a wim is frustrating and saddening but mostly it makes me feel trapped.

Money is the root to all evil but it supplies you with much needed travel time.
