Money Matters

What happened was I had an epiphany and was able to rewire my brain with regards to my finances and income generation.

Enjoying life on a tight budget

With all the payables that we have after moving in to our new home, there are certain luxuries that we just have to skip. We get fewer outdoor adventures and going to the mall is now subject for debate. Nonetheless, we try to keep ourselves entertained as we try to maintain our sanity despite the new challenges of owning our own property. Fortunately, the pandemic lessened our choices and actually made us think of more practical ways to enjoy without breaking the bank.

Our Journey To Our New Home

This made me realize we are not prepared for this investment. I was not ready at all. But I don’t want to disappoint both myself and my wife so I thought, we gotta do this because we’ve come so far already.

Life of working from home

To be honest, I can no longer remember the time when I stressed myself out in commute to work. Add the fact that stress from actual work is a totally different story. All I know is that I dreaded going to work. I dreaded heading out, battling it out with fellow commuters, only to be bombarded with work when I get to my work area.
