@Freddybbee needs to have a seat like the fuck
Lmaooo bet he thought that post was to his benefit
I have spent the last 6 months plus relatively comfortable with no job. I get paid here and there for my art and social media stuff. And once in a while, Google sends me a paycheck if I’m consistent enough.
"But how you you REALLY survive?", folks ask a lot, occasionally side-eyeing me as if I’m getting some sort of special handout.
How do I very briefly say, “Well, it’s called being frugal as shit and knowing how to handle the fuck out of your money. My trick (not really) was simply to work my ass off for well over a year and save. Possibly awesome friendships were never strengthened because I skipped many offers to hang out. People eventually stopped asking me to join them for dinner. The not so clever trick was to move home and when I couldn’t, I lived in the basement of my employers lol. I held off on nice clothes, shoes and gadgets. I was willing to look like a hot mess for a bit.
I’m still a bit of a mess. Of course I’m not completely alone because there are some amazing people who say things like,”Hey, you can live with me for free for ____ amount of time” and other things like,”You can make it! Don’t give up!”
I have the time and freedom to focus on my dreams and work towards them instead of working off debt. Doesn’t mean that it isn’t as stressful as anyone else’s daily grind, but in the end, I’m living the life I want now because I made certain sacrifices and I’m willing to make more.
But how do I shorten this hmm??
Thank you for appreciating!!!!
