Okay, time for the extrovert to think out loud. Today, I’m going to be dealing with a topic I hardly think about. I am a person who likes doing things on the fly. At the other end of the spectrum, if I plan things, I go into excruciating detail. Kind of an all or nothing person.
So here we go!
Today’s topic is Money & The Future.
What sparked this off: Looking at my bank account & the talking of insurance plans with WH.
Questions he raised were: Did I have a financial goal for myself, such as owning a house by a certain age? Or a certain amount etc. I sheepishly answered no to all his questions- pretty much dodged all the bullets, including the one about my job. Muh.
I guess it’s time to ask myself what I want to do. I am almost 22. Like many I would like to own my house and children. Kind of gave up on the car thing though I would want to ferry my child to school. Expensive but I hope to cope!!
Frills, I can do without. Travel, I don’t really want to. Social life- it’s the food that is costing haha but I don’t want to give up on good food. Clothes, I don’t really shop cause I’m lazy.
The “zen and new me” exercise will begin! Aiming for a room detox for the 3rd time of the year. Can live with less things. Embargo on all money spinning things. Saveeee for mah future child and house. And pay off travel debts :O Also want to support my sister and family, and have some extra cash on the side to learn something new in a class. Like maybe art or another language class.
Money makes the world go round no? But I guess every day is a choice. I’m going to be active in my choices and not let life just consume me the way it wants. Like I want to go down I want to die gloriously hahaha. Better die trying than do nothing at all! <— sounds like words of a fool, no? Going to try smarter strategies instead of headstrong decisions. It helps to be informed when we’re making decision that will majorly impact my life. Wonder if 30 year old me will love or hate me for the things I do now.
I have not exercised much- from minimum once a week- max 5xweek/ to a measly, pathetic once/month thing. It’s terrible. Hate it. Going to do something about it. :D
Trim trim trim. Trim all the edges in life that bogs me down- they say we can’t have it all but I can die trying. So.. shall stop spending money like water just for 15 minutes of pleasure. And maybe not junk my body too much?? (Macdonalds and chips too many times in recent weeks.)
WE CAN DO THIS! thou shalt not be defeated so easily
Here is a white swan Yi’an and I spotted on our Botanic Gardens walk today!! It occurred to me that swan necks are incredibly… weird. Spent quite a few moments observing it extending, turning, twisting and using its neck to groom itself. Like an elephant’s trunk. Like a hairbrush. LOL
Just thought you might want to know.
Also: didja know the first pair of swans for the BG Swan Lake were imported from all the way from amsterdam?
[damn lol so hard to get swans eh in SG!!!] nuuu baby cygnets!!]
Caught up with my movie buddy Cha today- we finally caught Lucy!
Had like zero expectations for it- from the trailer I thought I was gonna watch some sexy action flick. Was such a pleasant surprise when I left the theatre feeling very intrigued by this whole concept of unlocking the human mind.
spoilers all over the place so leave while you still can. Haha.
(I’m assuming some stuff the movie says is true. Have not researched or anything but lets just go hypothetical for now.)
If humans only unlock 10% of the brain, and dolphins unlock 20%- why are we unable to unlock it?
Is it because of
1. time- humans will need maybe another 5000 years to unlock/grow/develop the next 5%
2. reasons. if humans know the potential of their true power, the world will truly be in chaos? Ok but then this would mean somebody is deliberately locking our brains up.
Haha. In the end maybe we’re just Sims running through the levels, unlocking ‘levels’ when we finish certain stages hahaha.
So anyway I just wanted to say I enjoyed the movie- it was thought provoking. Left me with more thirst for life. I think feeling awed and active, wanting to connect to the world after watching a movie is one of the best stuff.
Also: I did the #20facts thing and tagged a whole bunch of people and I’m really glad cause I love knowing more about my friends. Some of them don’t blog like me, and I don’t get to see some sides of them. Plus since we hardly meet/have common interest/locations now, it’s sometimes hard to get to know them better. I’m glad for all this sharing :)
