Hey. I hope you are doing well. I have been all over the place but I am finally settling down. The past few weeks have been about reflection and taking steps towards my goals. It has also given me time to appreciate how far I have come. I am slowly understanding how progress works i.e. putting in a lot of effort at the beginning which will eventually pay off in due time. I feel like I am at peace with where I currently am emotionally, physically and mentally. I thought I could share a few things that have been on my mind.
Loan apps: I have been seeing so many ads when I am online offering to give you money. Some are even sending texts. I feel like we are becoming a borrowing nation, especially among the youth. Apart from people who use it to start businesses, what do people actually do with that money? I am so scared of taking loans and I know at some point in life I might need one, but it shouldn’t become a culture.
Further Studies: Everyone has career goals. I have always wanted to continue with my studies till PhD (I know right), but then I found out you have to put in some lecturing time. I don’t know why I have something against lecturing but maybe I will cross that bridge when I get there. I have a lot of decisions to make.
Adulting: There have been so many mornings I wake up wishing someone could just give me money or that I was rich but no, you just have to start from the bottom. It is all about having priorities and figuring out how to survive, but when will you live when you are constantly struggling to survive?
YouTube: This website now has a channel. If you read my ‘should I do it’ post you will see how I doubted myself in everything. I was given a push to join, but I am happy I ventured into something different. I feel like there are things I would want to write about but gathering my thoughts takes time, so it will be much better if I can just talk and engage with you guys. I have two videos up already so please go watch, comment, like and subscribe. I love watching YouTube videos but now that I am doing it, I can appreciate how much energy is put into creating content. In one of my videos, I remember constantly saying it’s hard but I just continued recording. It is a different space so I have to learn more skills.
