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.

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.
