Decisions On Money

I have this friend, N, who's gay and who's been having this relationship with, yes, another gay. I'm not against that but what I was not particularly fine with was when I learnt that my friend and his partner had been spending plain too much that they have loans from different banks.

I am glad though when they took out a loan to pay off all other loans. At least, they had learned not to spend too much and to just focus on paying that one big huge loan. They, at least, would not have to think of all the papers from the various banks. It was just one loan and though the amount may be huge, it helps to think that it was from one bank only.

I'm pretty sure that if my friend heard about credit card for bad credit, he may have considered this option as well. I heard they're doing pretty okay now financially.

Impulse Buyer Goes Online

Hi everyone. I am Peachy. And I am an impulse buyer.  

Yes, I am not afraid to tell people that I am an impulse buyer. I know it's not something good but sometimes I just cannot help it. Especially when I know that there's still some money in my wallet. But see, the benefits of being an impulse buyer includes me getting good deals.  

When I discovered online shopping, the impulse buyer in me has gone haywire. I just click and then I buy. I go to a site and check out the prices. See, I find it easy to find the best deals because I can compare prices from various online shopping sites. That is just one thing I love about online shopping - the convenience that it gives me for I do not have to go to the mall to get that thing I want.  

So when I go shopping for Johnny Depp items, I do not feel as if I have been robbed because I can choose and I can always go for the best deal. My Johnny Depp movie collection is increasing, by the way, and that collection is nearing completion. Yey!

I have been bloghopping for around an hour now. I know there's work to be done but I just could not quite focus on work right now. Maybe because I'm thinking that there's tons of things to do and I've written too much. Or maybe it's because I feel sleepy. Whatever the reason, I decided that bloghopping would be the good solution. I could get some inspiration while reading others' blogs, you know.

Anyway, here's two things I'd like to share with you. I surely like what they're saying and I think that I best share them with you as well.

Gabe Mercado:
These rallies are our reaction to the rape of our country. You're complaining that the rape victim is crying too loudly.

Noemi Dado:
My husband says that he doesn't like Jun Lozada but added that you don't have to like the messenger to get the message. It's so easy to turn a blind eye and live within our comfort zone. How convenient it is to just watch the telenovela of scandals, greed and corruption in the sidelines, continue with our household jobs and watch all the scenes unfold us and wish it woud just go away magically.

I will not be left out this time. My heart is filled with high hopes for our nation despite the convoluted and confounding events unfolding before me.

Push for change, BE the change. The change starts in me but it does not have to end or should not end there.
I find it enlightening to read stuff like this. Honestly.

Growing Old & Long-Term Goals

When I was in college, I was thinking that the only purpose of going to work was so that I could earn money to buy me the stuff I need (or want). And that was it. I brought that thinking with me even when I had my first job. I only realized that I had been spending my money on useless things when my mother asked me where I had spent my money during the whole year that I was working in this call center.

Now that I have a kid of my own, I have realized that there is a need for me to save. I need to be able to save up for our future needs and the future (as it looks to me) is approaching fast. Right now, I'm thinking that the things I have invested on are not much and I just need to invest in something that would be really valuable in the days to come. I'm thinking that I need to save up to buy myself a car and maybe a piece of land where I can build my own home.

I'm happy that my friend who has migrated to the United States has been able to buy himself a piece of property that he calls his own after looking through real estate in Austin, Texas and he now has property with his name on the title.

I sure am going to work on having my own piece of land. And that would be one of my long-term goals. (Gee, I really must be growing old for I did not have any long-term goals ever.)

Although Atomicgirl graduated with a BA Communication Research degree, this feisty Bicolana is quite satisfied with the industry that she is involved in right now. She now lives in Legazpi City although she sometimes misses the fun times she had during her 6-year stay in the jungle of Manila. She is a woman. She is a writer. She is a mother. And she is most definitely not a saint.

Buy me a cup of coffee.
