HOBBIES – MONEY

2 x 3 issue Money Magazines Subscriptions £2

In short I have spent a lot of money recently.

OK, so I have bought a lot of magazine subscriptions. They were my reward for getting the second job. I love magazines but rarely buy them as they are really a waste of money. I looked around for cheap deals and for the price of 2 impulse purchase magazines I have got 12.

*OK, so long story here. There was a women in front of me in a store buying a few things. It came to about £5. She tried to pay by card, her card was declined, she tried to pay by cash and it turned out one of the coins she thought was a pound coin was actually a Euro. She didn’t have any other means of buying her shopping.

I don’t know the circumstances for why she couldn’t afford to buy her shopping, all I know is once I couldn’t buy a cup of tea for similar reasons when I was in an Arts Centre in my town (one I later worked in) and the person in the queue behind me paid for it. I always vowed to return the favour ‘to the universe’ one day.

Also I have been giving away a lot of money recently as call me a superstitious idiot but when I went to my interview for the second job, I passed a homeless person and I gave them money as I got it into my head if I did something good then the Universe would treat me fairly. I have also read many theories that the richest people in the world have attracted their wealth by giving a lot of it away, plus in general I live my life by the idea that I would be ashamed of myself if I had something/wealth and I didn’t do something to help those without.

I have finally realised at long last that people create their own luck, but sending a few good ‘vibes’ out into the world won’t do any harm.
