Now that I have a job, I am getting my own money. And with this money my possibilities are endless!
I could buy a car (I've always wanted a new car), a new wardrobe (You can NEVER have too many clothes!), more data for my phone (I'm at 75 percent now.), or a new set of golf clubs (golf is my new-found hobby). I think these are all awesome ideas, but they may have their flaws.
See, with a car you need gas (and a license), with a new wardrobe you need a new hairstyle, with more data you still want more, and in order to use your new clubs you need to pay to golf. And don't let me fool you, I'm not making THAT much money.
Maybe I don't have that many possibilities. I need to rethink my options. I could... (let me think). I could... get a puppy (I love puppies and Tucker needs a friend), a mini fridge (So I don't need to walk all the way downstairs to get something to drink), or a guitar (I can play my guitar by the campfire)!
Another list of awesome investments! Man, I'm good! I should become a professional list writer! I could make lists for ANYTHING! Now that I think about it though, these have flaws, too.
Of course, a puppy needs food, a leash, and toys; a mini fridge is practically useless if you don't have the groceries to fill it, and since I don't know the first thing about guitars I would need to take lessons and that can't be cheap.
With these options being still too expensive, now I have no idea what to do with all my money! This is a lot more work than I thought it was going to be.
I need to think of a logical, non-expensive, flawless way to use my money. Maybe I should think about saving all of my money.
Yeah, that probably won't happen. Maybe I should ask my dad what he thinks. I think I need a financial advisor. Then I wouldn't have to figure this out by myself.
But wait. How much do you think a financial advisor would cost?
