Money, money, money. If I’m honest, I’m sick of thinking about it. For once, I’d like to enjoy myself without worrying that I’m going to either have no money at the end of it, or no money to begin with. I can never just let go, and quite frankly I am sick of it.
Now I know I’m not the only student to have gone through this, and I can’t even complain that much because I had more than most students – a student loan, a monthly bursary and I’m living with my fiance’s parents, but it was still hard. And right now, I’m neither a student or graduate at this point – I’m in limbo – and I’m struggling. I have one last bursary payment and a small amount of savings to last me until possibly the end of April, and I really don’t want to spend that time being so stressed out I can’t enjoy my time off properly, or my work when I start it.
So, what did I do to try and sort my finances? I asked Google – obviously. Who doesn’t? The answers? Not so helpful. I was shown to a number of survey websites which take a lifetime to get a payout because you get written out of almost every survey you try and complete! I also found things like babysitting. Now, I LOVE babysitting, because I love children (I’m a paediatric nurse – almost) and I’ve been babysitting for years. I’ve gotten one babysitting job after posting and messaging I don’t even know how many times. I also tried photography – something else I love, but that’s also a dead end.
I guess I’m just stuck – and I’ve just realised this entire post is just me moaning about something everyone is going through at the moment – and I just want to enjoy life for a little bit. Just a few, stress free weeks. Is that really too much to ask?
Almost everything in life is more important than money – friends, love, family – but being comfortable can relieve a little stress, allowing you to enjoy those things that are more important without that stress at the back of your mind.
Anyway, apologies for the moaning post guys. Thanks for reading.
