Life is a funny old thing. You try to live it the way you think you should and then one day you question it all, decide on what you want to change and get comfortable and change nothing. No? Just me then.. Yes? Then why do we compare ourselves to others and their lives? Grass […]
I know its still currently 2012. The main focus for the moment for most people is Christmas, luckily or not luckily my family have never been into the whole festive season so I don’t have to worry about presents. Stupidly I act as if we do, I think its partially wanting to fit in with […]
You can probably guess the tone of this post today, it’s Monday. Mundane. Monday. You get the picture right? Most weekends the extent of my plans are – I’m going to the gym. With the odd exception when I meet up with friends to do something. A few years ago I realised that unless I […]
As I’ve only recently started this blog, you’re not to know this. I had intentions of becoming a personal trainer, I was extremely unsure though as it costs almost £3k to do. Once you’re qualified and gain a position within a gym you have to pay the gym “rent” to use their equipment. I didn’t […]
Do we really grow apart from people or do we just subconsciously distance ourselves knowing we don’t want to deal with traits of their personality we don’t want to deal with anymore?
Sometimes we forget, we are human after all. I don’t know about you but I let my thoughts and feelings stop me from doing a lot. I’m really trying to move away from that way of life, over the past two years I lost 2 uncles. I only knew about their characters and the way […]
In a previous post about my job hunt I mentioned weaknesses, I guess this is where my blog shows how my brain crosses paths and ideas together. I’m still trying to push myself to not care what others think when it comes to my own decisions. I guess that it what has put me off […]
I had my fat percentage measured yesterday. We all know about women, numbers and weight, right? I’ve religiously been working out daily since February and I weighed and measured my body fat on a stand alone machine at the gym. That said I was 25% body fat although I’d take that with a pinch of […]
I guess through my bigger plan – which I know I haven’t really mentioned other than I’m saving for it. I guess its undisclosed is the fact that there is no definite plan. In fact I have several options each of different costs and their own requirements. How do you commit to a plan where […]
This year its different, honestly it really is
Another birthday came and went in August, I spent part of it on a beach in Barbados and then on an Aeroplane. Not my first choice although this was remedied through a good old knees up back in England! Whenever a birthday is due or a new year arrives I always think about things I want to achieve or do, then everyday life comes along and ruins it all. Not to mention impulsive spending.
This year its different, honestly it really is. I’m not getting any younger and various things on my buck list are age restrictive!!!! See it really is different this time!
So what have I actually done differently? Well I’ve opened a savings account and I’m actually actively adding money to it. So far I’ve made £22.65 through using Quidco a website that gives you cash back for purchasing through them, that has one in the pot.
I’ve listed a few items on eBay so fingers crossed they’ll sell!! I have a number of people watching items, I know I’ve watched items previously and forgotten about them!! Think positive!! I must keep a positive mantra!!
I also have an account through Halifax that pays you £5 a month for depositing a thousand pounds into the account. This also goes straight into the savings account.
I’m debating other venues so hopefully I’ll have other money making schemes that aren’t too taxing.
As for my list, well I’ll keep it close to my chest for now!
