Since starting school, I’ve been working the occasional evening and weekend event as a way to make some extra cash. I know what you’re going to tell me. I have heard it before. You’re going to say that there are much easier ways to make some extra cash, like checking out sites like SoFi to learn more about investing. My friend has done it recently herself and has said that she never thought in a million years that she would have made the extra cash that she has done. It’s really quite amazing. But there are some benefits to be working more here and there to make extra cash. Luckily, it’s a lot of fun to work in the field and experience events around the city, but it can get exhausting. For example, I worked over 20 hours between Saturday and Sunday this past weekend, which as you can imagine, takes its toll.
Whilst I have found myself too tired to function on some days, I have to think about this logically. The more hours I spend working, the more experience and money that I will get, and this will be extremely valuable for my career. Everyone likes to earn some extra money here and there as it allows you to fund your lifestyle, as well as putting it to one side to save for special occasions and so forth. I think I have come to realize the importance of money more recently, as my friend has found herself in some unthinkable financial situations that she has done so well to get out of.
I’m not going to lie, at one point, I was really worried for her. She could hardly make ends meet. But that was until she decided to invest the money that she did have in some worthwhile investments, like bitcoin. This type of digital currency has really come into its own recently, and because she has made a decent amount of money from it so far, she has since decided to look into something like this Bitmain Antminer S17+ to see about mining her own cryptocurrency that hasn’t been discovered yet. From there, she can do as she pleases with it (I suggest selling it for more money haha).
So, when I think about it this way, working overtime, that has seen me make more money, as well as helping me to take positive steps in my career, I think I’m on the right track to be successful. Although, it does make me very tired…
When I’m this busy, I don’t get overly creative with my outfits and will typically wear jeans and a t-shirt. If I don’t feel like doing my hair, I’ll throw on a hat. I instantly feel more put together with a hat on, and find it’s the starting point for a chic or sporty look. While I wouldn’t typically define my signature style as ‘sporty,’ I like to play around with that type of style from time to time. Come to think of it, this look was most likely inspired by my last post.
One of my favourite ways to give a sporty edge to an outfit is to wear my NY Jets hat. When I wear this baseball hat, it’s not unusual to get asked about whether or not I’m a fan. The answer is no, I’m not. I bought the hat because I loved the colours and vintage look it had.
I remember being on vacation a few years ago, waiting in line at the bar. A random guy started talking to me about the Jets. I had no idea what he was talking about, because at the time, I didn’t even know they were a football team. Needless to say, the conversation didn’t really last long…
