Trying to keep up

August 13th, 2008 at 09:04 am

It's been a while since I blogged. So I just wanted to say hello. There have been major changes professionally and personally and I am just trying to keep up with all these changes. So it's been a little stressful. Being so stressed, it appears makes me spend money, so I will have to be careful about that.
All in all, I am just tired and need a vacation. But then vacation costs money too!!

A down day

July 17th, 2008 at 09:04 am

Not feeling very positive today. Perhaps due to some personal stuff and job related stuff. I went to bed at 2 last night! What was I thinking? That too, after that post about discipline. Ugh! I am so bad at it. There is not really much to be motivated about right now. I need to switch myself around and my thinking around. I need to stop feeling sorry for myself and start doing things to make it better.

I did bring my own breakfast and lunch today though.

Being Disciplined

July 15th, 2008 at 07:57 am

I understand that one has to discipline herself/himself in matters of personal finance. It's not easy to have no spend days. It's not easy to save. However it is very easy to give into wants and make purchases you will regret later. So my goal is to try and discipline myself to save every dollar that I can. I live in a very expensive city. I can't really say that I have a quality time to myself or with friends/family, or that I am very happy with the place I am right now in life. I have noticed this also lends to spending where I shouldn't be. I was walking around last week, and stopped in a store and ended up spending $60. I could have waited for those things I bought. But I was feeling bad, and I thought why not? They gave me temporary happiness. But no, I shouldn't be spending recklessly like that. Especially not in this economy. Well, never really. I have also been eating out a lot, which is not only expensive, but also unhealthy. So what am I going to do? I am going to discipline myself. I am going to discipline myself to do things that I necessarily don't want to do, for eg: exercise. I have heard exercising helps a person mentally. I also think it will motivate myself to eat healthier. After all, I don't want to counter-effect all that exercise. I am going to discipline myself to pack my lunch, go to sleep on time and wake up early. I am going to start with small steps and see how far I can get along.
