Been hearing and talking about post grad life, yea, end of the year will be officially study free, mom ask me do masters, but.... am i really up for it? not now la, studying since 6, now i'm 23.. thats 16 years! wait, er, 17 years! Maths fail.... i failed education! Or, since i'm in this place... did education failed me?
Anyway, all i hear about the working life are money issues, taxes, loans, ho
w you should plan ya life.
Attended cell yesterday and someone spoke about finances and how you shojl manage it well. Yea, it was good, wise and definitely his words was worth following after. But... what i heard was:
- I am gonna have more responsibilities.
- Must get house before car to prepare for marriage life
- Gonna work like a dog, wait dogs don't work.. erm..work... like.. slaves, paid slaves! yeap, work like paid slaves to pay off loans.
- Credit card is murder
- Taxes are troublesome
- something about half past 6 government (lost track of this one)
- Life gonna suck.
Ok, back to my point, yea, in one sense, its awesome you gotta make good financial plans, but where gone the childhood dreams? Where gone the "dude, i am so gonna open a bar" or "lets travel the world and forgot the corporate world!"
Now its all about money money money.
I should know, me and my family constantly have financial issues, been there done that, so i know how important is money!
But.. is life all about striving for money? Yea, you throw God in the picture, then we should use it for God, but then... in retrospect, you see how much our life revolves around the greens? Claim all you want about God giving us money so we can put in good use, to me, honestly, we just sometimes use that as an excuse to find more money.
OK, stop, i know if you wanna preach about cash and God, save it, i know!
What i am trying to say is that, even myself, i am already starting to hunt for job, why? All
because of money, if money didn't exist, then there wouldn't be such things as debt, or loans, but in reality, money is always an issue. Just speaking of it, i bought a Rm78 modem! because for some stupid reason, my modem died on me. There, RM78! Money i've been saving to go overseas next year to visit friends! How long am i gonna save my money before i can afford a one way ticket to somewhere?
Money, pfft, if i were alone in this world with no attachment no family, i think money would not be so much of an issue, but now got family to care, and study loans, so have to strive for it, no
bumming or slacking after graduation, work work work, Work my ass off to pay off ptptn, pay back mom and dad, then plan for my future, sigh, a cycle, a stupid dead end cycle, no wonder movies are fairy tales, how can one actually just dump everything and "live life"? I wish i could.
Enough ranting, amidst all this, i guess, i will find something better to strive for soon. Soon.
