When I was a student, I had loads of free time. And my thought of spending it was doing almost every day the same. Watching some movies, doing a couple of my hobbies, go out once a week and that's it.
But now x years later I'm working. And I had never thougt that I would be this exited every time the workweek is over and it's time for some weekend fun. But the problem is I want to make as much as fun as possible in a weekend. rather than how I used to spend my weekends just hanging out with some friends.
Going to clubs friday and saturday. Sometimes even sunday afternoon. Going to the movies, bowling, buying some gadgets,... As you can see, not very healthy for my bankaccount...
It's not that I wasn't saving. It's just that I was spending money on some useless things (but fun!!).
Currently I'm trying to find the balance between saving and having fun. But I feel if don't spend my whole weekend doing something, It's a weekend wasted and the weekend is over before you know it.
For me personally, I only work because I have to work. Everybody expects it and I'm too much of a pussy to go against it. It's not that I don't like my job, but I feel I can do 'greater' things rather than making a company some money.
I'm still young, so I hope I get the guts to change my lifestyle somewhat and do the things I feel like I should be doing!
