Leaving the Nest….

Well, after years of trying to subtly hint that I’d like to live on my own, or have my own space. My mom has kind of come to terms that I’m moving. To be honest, Asian cultures, they often do not let their kids grow and they tend to “nurture” us into adulthood. And it makes sense that you live with your parents and then you end up taking care of your parents in their old age. Plus, with the cost of living here on Maui, it’s literally impossible to get your own place unless you get roommates, and trust me the pick of people here… ahem, I just wouldn’t.

I’m very excited to finally leave the nest! I’ll be moving to another island and I’ll still managing another store in our company! J I’ll also be paying rent and staying with my uncle for a couple months before I find my own place.

I think my mom is only letting me fly because next year when my little sister graduates, she can come stay with me… lol.

But yay me, little birdie is getting out of the nest! Finally finished with my Bachelor’s in Business! Yeeeeyeeeeyeee!

Any tips for moving? Especially for a first timer?

Finances

Like many young Americans, I find life very very hard to wade through. I’m still living at home with my mom and sisters. I just can’t imagine struggling to pay bills, I rather sacrifice my freedom for the moment. It’s just so stressing. I’m thankful that I maintained a job while attending school full time.

I’m in my last two semesters at UHWO before I get my Bachelor’s in Business. I’m very ecstatic. I’m also very excited because my job promotion allows me more leeway with my bills. I no longer struggle too much w/ bills because I’m getting paid better and salary too. I’m not complaining.

Now though, I see all my friends struggling and nothing much I can do to help. I just started this business with Wake Up Now, not because I was the “lucrative” compensation, mind you I have my plate full. My friend Jerrell pitched this onto me, and I was like hmmm, sounds too much for me. Nevertheless, I Googled this company. My initial thoughts? It’s a scam.

But I figured it can’t hurt to try. I’m enjoying the discounts. I like it! I’m enjoying the freebies. Love it! But getting others onboard is quite hard. :\ I’m not good at selling something that not in my hands. I can sell my ass of t-shirts, but this one is harder. I’m guessing I’m not in the mind-set to spread an amazing product. It’s designed to help keep people out of debt and lower it, meanwhile, offering them a great way to earn residual income.

Well, I have a couple term papers to write. So online marketing has to wait. I seriously cannot wait to finish school. It’s taking over my life.
