Saving and Spending Lessons from 2016


After gaining employment at a financial institution, I fortunately became more aware of the importance of planning ahead, saving, borrowing and saving while you borrow. After a number of habitual splurging episodes I was also more aware of some unnecessary spending choices that I made.  In an effort to incorporate some of this knowledge, I decided to take a few steps towards better financial security and document them on my blog for future reference. Perhaps they may assist you as well.

Being Camera Shy

Upon the onset of adolescence, I became deathly afraid of cameras because I was convinced that acne, the spawn of the devil, was created to destroy my life. Every camera was too close for comfort and I’d quiver before reviewing the final shot. I hated being photographed by others but loved capturing memories from my own angle. It got to the point where I would process hundreds of photos of family, friends, strangers, animals and other things. At the end of the day, I could only find a handful of self-shots, most of which would be deleted. My father always found this displeasing. A part of me desperately wanted to be captured on film. I wanted nothing more than to look back and find myself in the midst of all the fun but I would become so uncomfortable when someone else was in control. Their eyes made my skin shiver but I was as stiff as a pole when they hit the shutter button. Worst of all, I was positive that my esteem would plummet to an all-time low after viewing the final image.
