about a year and a half a go I made this post about how I had just landed an internship, and didn't know what to do with the income I'd be bringing in. General consensus was that I'm only young, have a blast and get it out of my system, I'll only 19 once.
Well I had my fun while it lasted, but something happened in March that kinda helped me save a little more than I was. After a 6 month extension and roughly now 8 months of WFH, sitting on a larger nest egg than expected at around 50g.
Funny enough doing 16 months at a bank has not helped me understand my financials any more than before. I've been seeing more and more about it being unwise to rush into housing, I'm a little too scared to take a dip into investing as almost nothing has made sense to me this period of why some businesses are soaring. Hoping OZB will help with a variety of opinions and discussion, as I feel almost anything is better than letting it stagnate.
I plan to complete my last year of uni without working, hope the world goes semi back to normal and can enjoy it like my first and second years as a dumb student. Still sitting on very minimal expenses, my parents are giving me the best chance I can to make a head start in this world and I'm infinitely thankful for that.
Hope this doesn't come off as a humble brag, I'm very aware about how lucky I am to have had this opportunity and having thankful to my Uni for making our third year a mandatory internship, insane how much benefit it has brought through experience and savings.
