I haven’t updated my blog in awhile because I’ve been quite busy but I hope to get into a better routine and update it more frequently.
Lots of things have happened recently. I graduated from McGill, with Honours. I got a great summer internship at The McGill Institute for Health and Social Policy (which ends next week), I am almost finished a summer writing course at Concordia which I took to improve my writing skills and I got offered a full-time job in September.
But the thing on my mind today is group coupons, my biggest weakness. Since this phenomenon began just a few months ago, I have been addicted! I’ve bought manicure and pedicure deals, massage treatments, hair styling and even food. I keep on thinking I am getting an amazing deal, and usually I am, but it’s only a good deal if you actually would buy that item full price anyways. If you wouldn’t, then it’s just money wasted.
As I start moving on with my life after graduation, I hope to start managing a budget and tracking my expenses. I never really did that in university and instead just trusted myself to know how much I am spending and not waste money on superfluous things. Now that I’m “all grown up,” I want to keep a detailed account of what I do with my money so I can start saving for my future. My major obstacle will be these impulsive group coupon deals!
If that’s my biggest problem in life, I’ll count myself lucky. For now, I’m off to redeem one of my deals.
