To all my Indian brethren out there. This is how I saved some money as an international student in New York and also some free guidance. Feel free to thank me in the comments.
Hello people,
As a college student, I initially thought I couldn’t afford it. Rent in New York is prohibitively expensive, the price of food is triple the amount I would have paid back home, and my NYU tuition bill put a nice $50,000 dent in my wallet each year. However, I was meticulous with my saving, and as a graduating senior, I have a few tips to share about saving money as a student in New York.
Look for affordable housing
Living in Manhattan or downtown Brooklyn may seem glamorous, but it can burn a hole in your pocket. If your college is in Manhattan, consider living in Queens, Brooklyn, or Jersey City to save money. If you’re attending a college in Brooklyn, look for places like Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, or Coney Island. Sure, you’ll have to travel an extra 30 minutes every day, but it’s worth it. And try to find apartments without broker fees. It can save you almost $500–$1000. And also, use Zillow.
Another tip is to look for sublets or hunt for people looking for roommates in Facebook and WhatsApp groups. This way, you can talk to the people you’ll be living with and save on guarantor fees. Guarantor companies charge around 1 month’s rent in order to insure you.
List of Affordable and safest neighborhoods in NYC (that i know):
  1. Bay Ridge(Brooklyn)
  2. Dyker heights(Brooklyn)
  3. Journal Square(Jersey City)
  4. Forest Hills(Queens)
  5. Jackson Heights(Queens)
Waive your college health insurance
Saving over $4,000 per year sounds too good to be true, right? But trust me, it’s possible. You just need to know the right information. My wonderful friend, Sai, introduced me to a free health plan from a company called Kimber Health during class. Since I was hardly paying attention anyway, I filled out my application on the spot. At first, I was skeptical, but two weeks later, I received my insurance card backed by UnitedHealthcare. And just like that, I waived my NYU insurance and my roommates and I saved almost $15,000, which we used for our trip to Puerto Rico. Yeah, it was alright!
Useful links:
$0 health insurance for New Yorkers?
That’s right!
Won’t the Essential Plan affect my immigration status?
Cook at home
NYC is notorious for its expensive food prices. I mean, who wants to pay $20 for a sandwich? The best way to save money on food every day is to cook at home. I know it’s tough as a student, but you can take turns cooking with your roommates or preparing food in advance for a couple of days. You can also make instant lunch, like a chicken salad. And say no to Uber Eats. Trust me, your wallet will thank you.
Take advantage of discounted Metro cards and Museum visits

Saving money in NYC can feel like a never-ending battle. But don’t worry, there are ways to make it easier. One of them is using Fair Fares NYC, a program that offers discounted metro cards to eligible New Yorkers. Thanks to my friend Sai, who introduced us to this program, my roommates and I save upwards of $60 per month. It may not be as much as health insurance savings, but it’s a consistent saving. And the best part? Immigration status is not affected. I did my research and spoke to an immigration lawyer, and it’s clearly mentioned on the NY state gov website that these details will not be shared with federal immigration authorities at any point in time.
Note: This applies to Health Insurance saving too(Tip 2).
Not a money-saving tip, but a money-earning tip
Saving money is important, but so is earning it. Try to find on-campus employment as soon as you get admission. Each university has different ways of finding employment opportunities, so start by emailing someone and I’m sure they’ll help you find the right person. At the end of the day, it’s not just about saving more money, but also earning it.
With these five proven ways to save money as an international student in NYC, you can focus on your studies and experiences instead of worrying about your finances. Or, with the money saved, you can take a nice tropical vacation after your finals.

2023.06.08 23:13 Successful-Fox-7971 I feel like my brother doesn't always care about me as much as I care about him.

I (28f) live with my brother (29M) because rent is so expensive where we live. I love my brother dearly, he is the only real family I have and I would honestly say he's my best friend, but I'm sure like most siblings we have our issues.
About a year ago my brother got offered a job as a paralegal, it was a huge thing for him after being a property manager for 3+ years and he really wanted to go, however our apartment at the time was dependent on him maintaining that management position. So, he worked it out where his workplace would let me take over as manager (I was the assistant at the time) and we could keep the unit. Now I never wanted to be manager, I have a lot of health and mental health issues and was actually seeking getting on disability because I have been told It is not healthy or safe for me to maintain regular work. But I didn't want to hold my brother back, and if I had said no he would have refused the better job as a paralegal, so I accepted and took over the role as Manager.
Cut to only about 6 months later and we lose the apartment anyways because my Brother could not clean up after his damn cats (He has 4) and so we got kicked out, but I maintained my job. A job I never wanted, hated in fact, and the fact we where evicted is on my record, not his, even though it was his animals that caused the damage, even after I told him to take care of it.
I cannot go on Disability now because I know for a fact it would not be enough to cover our new rent or utilities, and after the Plague a couple of years ago, we are both deep in debt. So I've stayed at this job, looking for others, in a city that does not want to pay jack for hard work.
Today I had an interview at one of the biggest companies in town, that has an amazing reputation, and is a lot closer to home, it went really well and I am in a position now that as long as the per-screening goes well, I am guaranteed a new job. I am so happy, I cannot even begin to describe it. My role as Manager has hurt my health, both physical and mental, so bad that for the last year I have been consistently thinking of taking my own life, I've never told anyone this before because I can't afford the help I need to deal with it, and I don't want to put my issues on my brother when he is dealing with his own shit, (He was in a car accident last month and has his own health/mental health issues) Either way the interview took longer than expected because I had to fill out some paperwork, and my brother was waiting. Now I know that normally you don't mess with your phone in an interview, it's rude and looks unprofessional, but I know I should have told my bro (I don't have a license due to weird circumstances but am working on getting it, so he drives me). Either way I came out and told him the good news and he went off on me, complaining about how long it took, how I should have informed him (I know I should have and I apologized) and then complained about how his ear infection was hurting.
I hate seeing my brother in pain, and I did apologize profusely, but he kept at it and didn't let up and I've been having a lot of conflicting feelings. I feel bad for taking too long and not texting him, but at the same time I fear that if I had pulled out my phone during this interview I could have been seen as unprofessional and lost the job, and I need this job. I don't think I would be as upset if this was the first time he's done something like this.
Throughout our adult lives I have always tried to accommodate him, in the old apartment I handled most utilities, the cooking, majority of the cleaning, and in the new place I still cover half the rent, all of the utilities, and have been the only one to do any cleaning. He had promised to take over the cooking, but he hasn't, and once again his cats are leaving massive messes he won't clean up. And with the job, I only took over so that we would not lose an apartment and he could pursue something better, we lost the unit anyways, and now that I get to move on to something better for me and I get yelled at because an interview went longer than I had expected. I feel terrible that I had inconvenienced him so badly, but I also want to be happy about this amazing opportunity that I finally got, after working for a terrible, abusive company that makes me feel worthless.
Add this to the fact that when we lost the old apartment he never took responsibility and threatened to leave me behind and move to another state, and I'm exhausted. I just want to be happy for myself for a few minutes and take care of myself instead of worrying about him. I love him, I'll always love him, but I do think living together is not good for either of us. As long as I take care of him he'll never learn to take care of himself, and as long as I am reliant on him for company and things like rides, I'll never be independent.
The more I think on it and look back, the more I recognize more of this behavior. When he's sick or hurt he is incapable of doing anything and I'm always looking after him, making him food, taking care of his cats, etc when he needs help. When I'm sick or hurt, even when I was dealing with kidney stones, when I'd lay down to rest he'd come knocking on my door to cook dinner or do the dishes. I ask him to let my dog out, which just involves opening the door so she can run in the yard, and he won't do that unless I remind him. I don't think he does any of this maliciously, but it hurts, and I feel like my opinions and words about it never really sink in with him.
Sorry for the rant, but this today really hurt me and I kind of wanted to get it off my chest, specifically not to people in my friend group, and in part because I find a lot of reddit replies to be sort of funny and might make me smile. Oh, and this is my first ever post.

Thank you

2023.06.08 22:59 Smallcutewolf I am ill, tired, exhausted, without family, noone loves me, everything in my life went wrong. Every time I try something bad happens. Is the only chance to have peace when I wont be alive?

I was born to alcoholic abusive mother who hated me and father who didnt want me. My whole childhood was a mess. Bullied at school for my looks. Kids didnt want to talk to me because of family too. Mother often went to city and shit herself while drunk walking around. Her mates sexually assaulted me. I lived with grandparents who were abused from family for saving me and I was abused from them verbally. When they died family took house and made me homeless. I tried so much to study and work but I got panic disorder and depression. Lost my job by the sea abroad, lost my dog because grandmother killed him. She killed my rabbit too. Tried many antidepressants, but they ruin my stomach and give me horrible side effects so I survive on benzos. I also ended in bad relationships, was beaten, used, lied to.
Finally when I met someone who was nice their family ruined us. We went abroad and his father commited suicide. Its very long story involving alcohol and toxic relations. Another family members were jealous of our wedding, our plans with home and work abroad. We had to go back to this shit from after 2 weeks. My grandmother died from overdose of pills she told me to buy. Mother died by train. Friend hanged himseld. Step grandfather shot himself. And my husbands father followed them all. Then I got covid 3x and ended with gallbladder removal which led me to bile reflux and now I burn inside and in throat every day. 7 months every day and no meds help. They say it could be forever.
I also suffer from joints and bones pain, from 1st covid in 2020 and to this day I am not diagnosed. My other dog was killed by some stupid fkr. I live in poverty shit country where people kill animals for fun. I lost another job. Had 3 jobs where I was sexually abused too. Its just too much. This life is just too much. I always tried so hard but this fkn life keeps throwing bad things at me everytime I feel little bit happy and strong and now health is gone I just dont want to live like this anymore. I am 37 and this is just way too much. Everyone who says be positive or oh you are so negative stupid people who have no idea what happened to me in all these 37 years and how does it feel to live shit life like I have. I am sure I wasnt meant to be born. I think its not normal to have to deal with so much shit. Im angry, tired, exhausted,. I just wish I was dead but I dont want to commit suicide. Why some people are so lucky to have happy life and some have to suffer to the point the cant see any light anymore. Even my husband doesnt love me anymore, we are just friends now. Everything is gone, ruined.

2023.06.08 22:41 thin-slice-pizza Ex removed shared album

Anyone care to talk? I’m feel like my mind is really spiralling right now.
Although we my ex and I blocked each other. My ex and I had a shared album and this morning I noticed it was gone. It struck a realisation in me that this was real.
I have been really focusing on my healing, reflecting my own accountability, all the externals like work and activities and my health, eating well, sleeping, working out. But today I couldn’t focus on work at all. My hunger shut down. My motivation shut down. This morning I thought to myself I would call out of work, but I haven’t because I wouldn’t know what to do with my time except be in bed which would make me feel worse. But I’m also so distracted I am barely getting any actual work work done.
For some time after I left and I arrived here, I kept thinking this wasn’t real. This was temporary. It felt like I was just going to be away for some time and I would go back to “our” home. But seeing our album gone made everything more real. I am trying to let go, but deep down I do not want to.
I moved to new city so I don’t have anyone here and I haven’t really made any “friends”. Anyone care to talk?

2023.06.08 22:41 Terianky [M4F] “-Will you go with me? -Always” ; A puzzling goth girl and a strange street guy meet each other while delving into occult mysteries. A story about an impossible love, esoteric secrets, and a hateful occult world.

<< The flickering red lights felt like they had a soul of their own. The beat dropped and the boom resounded in every clubber’s soul. The concussion blasts reverberated through the ears of the hundreds of people either yelling "what" at one another or pretending to hear what the other person had actually said and laughing drunkenly. There was a mosh pit of desperate souls holding out their cash at the bar hoping only one of the two bartenders would notice, there was the inevitable drunk dude-bro who wanted to start a fight, and there was a fair share of drunk unconsciousness. The “Rotterdam Club” was Stephen’s favorite place of business.
It was wall to wall people dancing erratically and the floor itself had become invisible under a sea of dancing feet. Despite it being hard to navigate through this mass of people, Stephen was like a fish in the water. He squeezed his way through the mass and could notice scattered pairs of interested eyes among the clubbers, some of these guests gave nods or even went out of their way to seek Stephen out. Then, Stephen would listen to their wants, swiftly bury his hand in his bag, and nonchalantly exchange a handshake with the customer where money and pills would be exchanged.
However, this specific night, Stephen wasn’t feeling right. For the last month, Stephen had been experiencing insomnia due to a series of weird nightmares, strange dreams which seemed to grow intense night after night. And in the last few days, a dark girl was frequently appearing in these dreams, a dark girl with dark omens drawn in blood. To work efficiently was becoming harder and harder for Stephen due to this. At the third hour after midnight, Stephen stopped in the middle of the club as all the clubbers formed a cyclone of drunken dancing, he stood still in the middle. As his eyes were scanning the venue for something interesting, his gaze fell on an intriguing dark silhouette facing away from him. A pale woman with a beautifully twisted aura stood still just like him a few feet away. Finally, she turned around and she stared back…as if she knew him, as if he knew her. And Stephen’s mind finally solved the puzzle as this girl’s image erupted in his stream of fractured memories…The girl in his nightmares, in his dreams, the dark omen, the goth girl who dies holding his hand. And for that moment, for both of them…time stopped. >>
Hey, I’m looking for a semi-literate partner to roleplay with. The story will take place in a rather big city which hides a few esoteric secrets. The vibe would be something in the middle between Stephen King-esque grittiness, Lovecraftian existential dread, and the interpersonal horror of the World of Darkness universe in addition to some Silent Hill bizarreries. Therefore, the themes of this story will be tied to esoteric thriller mysteries, interpersonal horror, and unattainable (toxic?) love which is my favorite thing to write/read about. The characters we play would be ordinary people who fall victim to the arbitrary and unknowable dark Supernatural. They have little to no Supernatural abilities or nature. They're humans who are just trying to survive.
If this genre of horror and thriller interests you. If stories of secret witch covens, underground cults, esoteric beings, and half-dead unknowable gods and demons entices you, or if you’re a big Silent Hill fan like me, then this RP might be real fun and a nice writing exercise in the genre for you. So, join me and let’s dive deep into this city’s intricate web of enigmas. A city where a girl recently died in mysterious conditions, where a boy is struggling with hallucinations of another world, where a man with glowing eyes is driving around at night hunting, where a veteran of war is following the possible trail of a murder cult, and where a school teacher is struggling to hide her true nature and true potential, all the while desperately and madly falling in love with each other in a world that cannot allow it.
I play in third person and use ref pics. I would like my partner to be able to create and manage multiple “NPC” characters since I will be doing the same. Also I would like my partner to have autonomy and to create plotlines as they wish. I am not a GM so please don’t expect that of me. I do not have any clear ideas of where the story goes for now, I only have my character kinda figured out but I’m sure that we can come up with something good if we put both our visions together. Please message me only if you have a character in mind with a brief bio and a ref pic.

2023.06.08 22:27 sadrustylynx 6000 people are waiting for evacuation from the flooded left coast of the Dnieper. Occupation authorities do not allow volunteers to save residents.

The database of volunteers collecting applications for rescue from the flooded zone contains about six thousand people, the "svobodnieslova" (Вёрстка) telegram channel calculated.
According to journalists, these people are scattered over 1,700 addresses in at least 12 different settlements. Most of the applications from the city of Oleshki, as well as rescuers, are waiting in Kardashinka, Malaya Kardashinka, Solontsy, Right Solontsy, Naked Pristan, Saga, Kokhanykh, Nechaevo, Peshchanovka, Novaya and Staraya Zburyevka.
Volunteer Ekaterina told reporters that about 10% of the points are urgent cases, people are waiting for rescue on the roofs of houses. According to her, there are about 500 such people.
"A large number of the elderly, including people with limited mobility, remain in the city. The Ministry of Emergency Situations does not organize the evacuation of people, and therefore there is a real threat to the life and health of a large number of people living in the flooded area," the appeal says.
The legal mayor of the city, Yevgeny Ryshchuk, told "Current Time" that approximately 90% of the city's territory was flooded, and the occupying Russian authorities did not help residents with evacuation. So far, nine deaths have been reported due to the floods.
"The occupying authorities simply ignored this situation, abandoned people. For two days now people have been on the roofs of houses. Yesterday, until night, people were taken out. Before that, all boats were confiscated, because of this there was a problem - where to get a boat in order to help people. <...> This all happened even earlier, when the Antonovsky bridge was blown up and the Russian troops went to the left bank. And then they massively took away watercraft from the population. "
“The local authorities interfere with us very much, the Ministry of Emergency Situations interferes. There was a case on a critical street, which is located in a lowland. Five boats were sailing today, a lot of applications were received from there, five boats were not allowed in by the Ministry of Emergencies, they turned around, ”said Yaroslav Vasiliev, coordinator of volunteers, to Layout. According to him, we are talking about Lower Street in the city of Alyoshki (Oleshki in Ukrainian). “Then [from there] there were reports from relatives that [the whole] family was dead. And such messages come every 30-40 minutes,” Vasiliev added.
A large number of victims are spoken not only in Alyoshki, but also in other settlements. So, in the village of Solontsy, Tatyana's mother-in-law from Nikolaev drowned. “She had two strokes, she is 85 years old and it is clear that it was impossible to go upstairs to the attic,” Tatyana said. - She wanted to go to the dam, such a hill. And it turns out that at first they started to raise it in the wrong direction, and the water went sharply and that’s it. And she stayed there to swim. She was 85 years old"
According to Tatyana, there are many other victims in the village. “Right Solonets was completely flooded, there were people who were not independent, they all drowned, everything,” said Tatyana. The residents of the neighboring Left Solonetsy also need help. “People are also screaming for help, there is a grandmother’s son. They moved to a two-story house there and are waiting for evacuation, but they have been waiting for three days, but there is no one, ”Tatyana added.

I have $195K left to pay off, and 9 to 12 years left of IDR payments.
I've hustled, counted pennies, and cut off every bit of unnecessary expense like a maniac during covid, and was able to save about 70% of that amount. Realistically, I could pay it off by August of next year with a tight emergency fund in toll. I will be inching closer to 40 next year, single with no family or anyone to rely on other than me and my lonesome, so the thought of clearing my bank account after years of sacrifices, budgeting and savings, albeit being the plan all along, is now costing me my sleep as we approach the end of the pause.
Here's the catch: I've "manned up" and kept my head down as much as I could in my current careejob and the city I'm living in. I get paid well, but I'm miserable, burned out, and quite frankly, the stress and anxiety have negatively affected my physical health resulting in horrible chronic pain. I feel guilty for complaining over my blessings, but I'm just not happy with my current life situation. I simply don't have a life because, at my own fault, the past 7 years have been laser focused on saving to pay this debt.
Worth adding: I've been applying for other jobs for months, and have looked into moving within the US, but the stars haven't aligned in that regard. My best option is to freelance, which is what made me think of the following option:
  1. I have the possibility of moving abroad, which has been my lifetime goal, and take advantage of the FEIE (Foreign Earned Income Exclusion), use a small sliver of that money for the move and keep the rest invested (leaving the predicted tax bomb amount untouched), pay a minimum amount on the IDR to make that time count towards the forgiveness while having a $0 due each month, while I wait for that forgiveness after that decade elapse. This would allow me to have a better quality of life, with lower COL compared to where I am, and in an environment/people that are more aligned with my persona. I could potentially buy my first home within 5 years, because property in the country I'm aiming for is significantly cheaper. 1/5 of the price in my current city. The con is that I'd have to take a 40% pay cut to qualify for the FEIE, but my cost of living would drop tremendously, and considering that I manage to live with very very little in a HCOL area as is, I'm confident that the drop in income won't affect my life in any way, especially if I no longer have to spend $1600 a month just to cover interest on these loans. Also, the Tax Bomb would be hard to predict, and we all know that the current political climate can mean that IDR forgiveness might not even exist by then. I'd also have to secure/rely on US clients (long story as to why) for the visa I'm looking at, which isn't quite a con, but freelancing abroad might or might not create roadblocks when trying to secure work.
  2. The other alternative is to continue in my misery, but be debt free by next year. Then continue hustling to re-save a decent amount, which would take me an estimated 4 years before I can make the move. At a glance, it sounds like a short timeline, but I honestly don't know how much longer I can take it in my current situation. To be debt free, and pay it all off, would bring such relief, but it will come at a higher cost to my overall well-being for another set of years. I keep giving myself pep talks about this option to help me cope with just getting out of bed, but I just feel incredibly unmotivated.
  3. A third option is to do half and half, pay part of the debt now and skeddaddle at a later date, but I'm not confident that this option makes financial sense as that would mean I'd be putting in the IDR payments until I leave, plus at least 6 months after living in a another country till I'm properly and legally settled.
I'm just at this crossroad that literally makes my stomach turn, and with our payment deadline approaching, I really needed to bounce my thoughts off of people who understand what this debt means. What path would you take if you were in my shoes?
Anyways, thank you for reading my brainstorm/sob story!

2023.06.08 22:08 KappaAlphaPhi Part 3 Conceptual Approach on How to End [Nuclear] War + A Matter of Pride and Integrity

A Matter of Pride and Integrity

Level 2-based: Trade remains an essential expression of solution-focused processes. It is fundamental for high spirits, joy, and optimism in society. Trade is a tool of peace, not of war. Holding innit the power to unite not divide. Because trade is an expression of valuring and respecting harmony between people of most different cultures and walks of life.
Let's recess from all the noise and appreciate again this fundamental principle of entrepreneurial wisdom: people spend money if a product solves a problem. Therefore, entrepreneurs innovate and solve problems for adequate compensation, enabling progress and happiness in society.
Rising from the dirt, the archetype of the middle class ended the Middle Ages. From scientists and philosophers concepts, it was merchants and engineering craftsmen who brought about a new reality of better living conditions through practical solutions.
I would like to invite you to enjoy a wide horizon and reflect upon dignity and integrity from this practical point of view.
Let's remember and embrace pride in the honorable goodness that trade brings.
To create directly applicable solutions, entrepreneurs need:
Unbound by logically insufficient morals, entrepreneurs are usually the second-fastest group in society to adopt modern concepts, right after the persecuted who stand up for what is ethical. This usually includes the new approach to morals early philosophers.
Unstiffled by inefficient regulatory bodies in order to get stuff done.
Unburdened by the motivation to benefit from stirring up drama and terror. Entrepreneurs prefer honest, frank, and direct communication because it is faster. And isn´t time is money?
A reliable justice system manifested in sensical laws and rational enforcements to sort out disputes.
Go ahead and let me know what else entrepreneurs truly require to prosper. It might turn out to be an effort investment with a high return, as I will gladly integrate valuable and valid premises into my governmental concept.
To be fair, entrepreneurial success does mostly not require fairness.
Entrepreneurs tend to forget its value until it threatens their own business, such as in questions of intellectual property expressed in patents.
But as society is one big body that is unhealthy in whole, if one part is sick, the unspeakable and immeasurable sufferings of the working class [1] and the ensalved [C 0] made me a fan of union work. Environmental cautions are equally important as they are valuring creation itself and are better thought of as one when honoring other aspects of goodness.

Indeed craftsmen and entrepreneurs value profound virtues at heart. In rational self intrest, to sell products that are pratical solutions, entrepreneurs value:
intelligence to increase the engeerning abilty of staff in a competitive market. In self-interest, they support the education of people and the fostering of talent and genius.
Creativity in aesthetics. Since the visual appeal of a product boosts sales, artists and entrepreneurs can both profit from collaboration. Though AI will likly take a big cut of those.
International diplomacy: They are quick to abandon differences and stereotypes in gender, race, religion, etc. Because a paying customer, is such and done.

7.1 Few groups in society honor this many positive concepts.
The argumentation line of anti-business protestors tends to lack empathy, ironically precisely what protestors critique. Proposing wishful utopian concepts that are highly irrational and can never come to be, many activist´s point of view lacks the wide horizon of ackowledging how society truly flourishes.
This is the result of entrepreneurs not prioritizing communication over centuries.
Showcasing and offering interactive experiences to embrace the greatly positive goodness that entrepreneurship presents to society is crucial to reduce tension. When it comes to business self-interest does not equal a less honorable results for society.
But scams and exploitation steal the spotlight. If occasionally necessary cleverness in navigating outdated regulations freely gets confused with undermining sensical regulations for personal benefit, the aspects of goodness are seen as the enemy. Those who don't adopt the listed great virtues turn out to be scammers, not entrepreneurs.
At the expense of people's health and sanity, as well as irreplaceable environmental and cultural destruction, respect for such buiness ventures shatters.
Insight and participation are keys to sorting out conflicts before classes are at each other's throats.

Finding myself occasionally rubbing noses with the startup scene in Berlin, I have developed respect for the energy and character of founders.
To build a business from scratch, founders have to push through risks with everything they have and are. In such turbulent waters, many find themselves praying for good odds now and then. Gratitude, if fate plays in one's favor, contributes to faith. Equally, crushing those efforts does not contribute to the experiences that foster faithfulness.
Rising to the many challenges of business, which morph into challenges of personal character development, successful entrepreneurs typically possess a equally intelligent and experienced as curios character.
An entrepreneur's manifestations of safety and well-being are wealth and influence. They are earned through dedication: skill and hard work.
One legitimately manages possession and power proportionally to one's expertise and experience.[L2] This principle is fundamental to bringing solutions into reality and enabling positive progress. Entrepreneurs naturally apply and defend it like no other group in society. Your effort resonates deeply with me.
On the other side of the spectrum, reality-detached, ego-driven governance can never allow innovation, as the cleverness necessary to produce solutions is the same cleverness that can disrupt any system.
Entrepreneurs have always been the most considerable danger to illegitimate rule, right after philosophers. Providing humanity with the service of their razor-sharp minds, philosophers lay out a better future theoretically. Yet, it is entrepreneurs who hold most of the keys to providing the practical solutions necessary.
Historically, entrepreneurs, together with middle-class intellectuals, have conspired and incited revolutions if a regime threatened their possessions. This was the key factor leading to the demise of many influential monarchies in Europe, ending, for example, the maximum of royal power in France and Austria. Despite the necessary close ties in their ranks, these autocrats were deeply scared of entrepreneurs' flourishing influence and self-awareness. Through dedication, cleverness, and bravery, craftsmen and merchants freed themselves from the brutal incompetence of monarchs, either through bloodshed or peaceful means. Like when they raised an astronomical sum and bought the freedom of Bremen, a trade city.
An entrepreneur can repurpose chains into strings and remold them into wings. If autocrats attempted to undo this process, it was their undoing.
The same dynamic is the reason why the Chinese Communist regime is currently cracking down on its entrepreneurs and why they are at the forefront of planning out its fall.
I experienced this Level 2 dynamic up close. I got to know some locals in Myanmar when traveling after my high school graduation during the short fruitful period before the current unrest. It is the same story:
The military regime opened up the country for tourism , with the intent to keep almost all of the profit. Hotels, for example, have to hand over the majority of profit to the government, and licenses are handed out only to regime-obedient people. Still, running a hotel was considered a desirable business opportunity, one of the few ways to reach a middle-class living standard. Thus, obedience to the regime became rational self-interest.
But As the country opened up, more and more different business opportunities arose. Entrepreneurs from amny countries also came to Myanmar because its economy was depleated and in many ways decades behind. Myanmar became an inviting opportunity to be the first to run already proven business models and succeed with the rise of the new middle class.
The military regime in Myanmar has a manner of seizing possession of whatever they want, destroying people's businesses and genuine efforts in a snap. Eventually, this new middle class wanted at least safety for their possessions and criticized the unreasonable ransacking while pushing for a system of more legitimate rule.
As the military regime saw its power challenged, it wanted to undo the process of the newfound middle-class confidence brutality. This is a major factor leading to the current unrest, which appears to be a political expression of a coup against election results. But at its core, it originates largely from the most basic human desire for safety through possessions. It needed a reliable framework in government and justice systems.

The latest involvement of the chinese regime, seeing the chaos as an opportunity to exploit and establish dominance, comes to show that, of course there are always many factors throwing a society into chaos.
However, the challenges Myanmar's society faces could have been sorted more smoothly if people were not deprived of basic necessities. With a large portion of the population hungry and uneducated, they are pushed to the brink of a resource war. Today, Myanmar withers in shambles too due to the economic sanctions that targeted its regime but hit its people.
A key factor to understanding how this chaos has ensued, is to be aware that it was a strategy by tyranny, the response to the positive initial force challenging it.
The key factor of entrepreneurial spirit, the wish for freedom from tyranny, gets underestimated these days. It is an eye-opening part of human history, currently in the shadows.
Why does it never get mentioned, not encouraged to be thought about, analyzed, and honored publicly? Out of tradition? An actual benefit in secrecy? Or is it because today's high-multiplier-factor individuals are afraid to be measured against? Are today's governments afraid of the built-up in self-esteem, the pride in competence, entrepreneurs are rightfully eligible for?
Just like in gardening, you can plant the most beautiful flowers, but you need bees and such to buzz around and bring it all together to flourish sustainably.
In governance, you can have all the right concepts, but you still need entrepreneurs to vitalize daily life and make society prosper.
Competent, legitimately acting governments have nothing to fear from the positive processes that come with entrepreneurship. If a government wants to establish itself as legitimate, it is imperative to encourage analysis and public recognition of their accomplishments and significant contributions to human history.
Rather than shrouding them in secrecy, humanity is best of to taking notes from brave and clever individuals. Skill and experience are best always valued.
The rising roar of Europe's free trade cities echoes the lands till this day. Similarly, e.g. "special economic zones" rise to lift millions into a better life.
the many positive processes stemming from providing practical solutions that offer realistic chance at better life speak for themselves. They are fundamental if a society rises from tyranny upon savages into prosperity for the cultured.

Yes, I am aware of the terrors upon the environment, workers, and children in particular; that must be depicted on the other side of the medal. I see a sincere will to extinguish the terrors of unfairness in the entrepreneurial community itself. There are plenty of solutions, often in a conceptual state, sadly, but also practically proven bittersweet marathon-winning techniques, like sincere union collaboration, offering direct and fast harvest of efficiency-improving ideas.
I witnessed union congresses over several years. The top management must be future-focused and aware of external competition to deliver awe-evoking numbers. Yet, at the pulse of tasks, the middle and lower management tends to become aware of internal dangers ahead first.
Some years ago, a major German tech giant considered it reasonable to cut costs by focusing on layoffs rather than the costly process of educating and hiring young people. Early on and very practically, the middle management noticed the effects of the demographic change kicking in. During interviews around the same time, the lower management noticed that it became more challenging to find staff curious and capable in regards to new technologies. Said company now faces a significantly lesser talent gap than its competitors, a major competitive edge, all due to its union insisting on educating and hiring young people at consistently high numbers years ago.

Out of the rational self-interest that is food on the table, staff is usually far from loyal. They just approach the company's well-being with a different perspective: a manager strives for refined profit for the next year or quarter, while a worker sees supporting a company as a marathon to ensure a constant salary for decades. Both are leverage for long-term growth, but a marathon needs different training techniques and equipment resources than a sprint.
Yet, just because there are reasonable approaches, it does not mean all people want to apply them. Thought and action are two completely different leagues. To uphold integrity takes will and effort that people with experienced, grown ethical concepts show.

In regards to protest and activism, I would like to state my stance clearly:
I am not in favor of killing positive processes.
Therefore, I am not in favor of killing businesses out of sole concern, be it environmental, political, medical, or other. Panic and fear are not to be trusted as guides to a better future. Complex problems require listening to minds that have calculated the complex solutions, turning opposing interests into beneficial profitable processes.
The summary stays the same despite all: offering directly applicable solutions gives humans a realistic chance at better living conditions. Thus, entrepreneurs push a society into an optimistic spirit. Entrepreneurs play a vital role in creating a society that promotes, rewards, and functions on stability, morality, sanity, and peace.

2023.06.08 22:03 egmeabudhabi Exploring the Environmental, Economic, and Social Benefits of Electric Buses

Electric buses have emerged as a sustainable solution to transform public transportation systems worldwide. By replacing traditional fossil fuel-powered buses with electric alternatives, cities can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and enhance the overall quality of life for their residents. In this blog post, we will delve into the environmental, economic, and social benefits of electric buses. From reduced emissions and cost savings to increased accessibility and community well-being, electric buses offer a multitude of advantages that make them a compelling choice for modernizing public transportation networks.
Environmental Benefits:
One of the key advantages of electric buses is their significant environmental impact. By operating on electricity instead of fossil fuels, they produce zero tailpipe emissions, thus reducing air pollution and contributing to improved public health. Electric buses help combat climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as the electricity used to power them can come from renewable energy sources. By transitioning to electric buses, cities can make substantial progress towards their sustainability goals and contribute to a cleaner and greener future.
Moreover, electric buses operate quietly compared to their diesel counterparts, resulting in reduced noise pollution. This benefit has a positive impact on the quality of life for residents, especially in densely populated urban areas. Additionally, electric buses can incorporate regenerative braking technology, which captures energy during braking and feeds it back into the battery. This feature enhances energy efficiency and reduces overall energy consumption.
Economic Benefits:
Electric buses offer several economic advantages for cities and transportation authorities. Although the initial purchase cost of electric buses may be higher than conventional buses, the long-term operational cost savings are significant. Electric buses have lower fuel and maintenance costs compared to diesel buses. Electricity is generally cheaper than diesel, resulting in reduced energy expenses. Electric buses also have fewer moving parts and require less maintenance, leading to reduced maintenance and servicing costs.
Furthermore, governments and organizations often provide financial incentives and grants to support the adoption of electric buses. These incentives can help offset the higher upfront costs, making the transition more financially feasible. Additionally, the increasing demand for electric buses is driving technological advancements and economies of scale, leading to a potential decrease in prices in the future.
Social Benefits
Electric buses bring numerous social benefits to communities. One of the primary advantages is improved air quality. By eliminating tailpipe emissions, electric buses reduce the release of harmful pollutants such as nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, and carbon monoxide. This improvement in air quality leads to healthier and cleaner environments for both passengers and pedestrians, particularly in areas with high traffic congestion.
Moreover, electric buses operate quietly, reducing noise pollution and creating more peaceful urban environments. This benefit is particularly significant for residential areas and sensitive locations such as hospitals and schools, where noise disturbance can have adverse effects on well-being and productivity.
Electric buses also contribute to increased accessibility and social equity. By providing reliable, efficient, and eco-friendly transportation, they enhance mobility options for all members of the community, including the elderly, individuals with disabilities, and those without personal vehicles. Improved access to public transportation can bridge socioeconomic gaps and promote inclusivity by connecting people to education, employment, healthcare, and social services.
Additionally, the adoption of electric buses can generate job opportunities in manufacturing, maintenance, and charging infrastructure development. As the demand for electric buses grows, it stimulates the creation of a skilled workforce, supporting local economies and sustainable employment.
The benefits of electric buses are wide-ranging, encompassing environmental, economic, and social aspects. By transitioning from fossil fuel-powered buses to electric alternatives, cities can achieve significant reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and create healthier urban environments. Electric buses offer cost savings in terms of fuel and maintenance expenses, while financial incentives facilitate their adoption. Moreover, electric buses enhance social equity by providing accessible, inclusive, and quiet transportation options for all members of the community. The advantages of electric buses make them a powerful tool for modernizing public transportation systems and fostering sustainable and livable cities.

2023.06.08 21:50 asomebodyelse Carson Update - Amtrak Improvements; Bipartisan Diagnostic Testing Preparedness Plan Act; Medicaid Changes

Here's an update on what's been happening in Congress this week:
I’m proud to serve on the Transportation and Infrastructure Rail Subcommittee as we work to improve rail service in our country.
During this week’s hearing, I asked about improving service on the Cardinal route, which runs between Indianapolis to Chicago. I’m pleased that returning to daily service is now being considered – which means it would be easier than ever to get from Nap Town and Chi Town. This week, we also announced new federal grants that will reduce travel times between Indianapolis and Chicago. I’ve recommended more funds for a stronger rail system each year, and I’ll keep fighting for better communities.
I was encouraged when Amtrak responded to my questions at the hearing with their recognition of the critical work at the Beech Grove rail maintenance facility in the 7th Congressional District. This facility employs Indianapolis residents and does critical safety and repair work to keep our nation running well. Over the years, there have been short-sighted proposals to down-size this facility, so a public commitment from Amtrak to increase support for the personnel and the vital work done here is long overdue.
It was a banner week for improving rail service in the Hoosier state and beyond. Rail is a job creator and bridges opportunity gaps. When we’re better connected, our country succeeds. I’ll keep advocating for improved inter-city passenger rail service for all.
This week, I joined my colleagues Congressman Greg Pence, Congressman Larry Bucshon, and Congresswoman Kim Schrier, to introduce the Bipartisan Diagnostics Testing Preparedness Plan Act.
But what are diagnostics, and what do they mean for public health?
Diagnostics can address a range of health issues, from infectious diseases and diabetes management to cancer and cardiac health. During the pandemic, it became more important than ever to use diagnostics to respond to the COVID-19 emergency as fast and effectively as possible.
But the pandemic also revealed gaps in diagnostics tests available in the US – including supply chain issues and reliance on foreign countries for materials, coordination between government agencies and diagnostics companies, and overall capacity to develop accurate, externally validated tests.
The Bipartisan Diagnostic Testing Preparedness Plan Act will streamline those processes by requiring the Department of Health and Human Services to develop a plan to be used during public health emergencies. Whether it’s a bad flu season or the outbreak of a new infectious disease, my bill will ensure Indianapolis and cities across the country are better coordinated to respond to the world’s most serious health problems.
The Bipartisan Diagnostics Testing Preparedness Plan Act is endorsed by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, AdvaMed, and Roche Diagnostics. Roche Diagnostics is headquartered in Indianapolis and leads the industry in developing diagnostic products for cancer, cardiac health, infectious diseases, women’s health, and diabetes management, while also employing over 10,000 employees across the country.
I’m honored to work with Roche Diagnostics as well as my Hoosier colleagues across the aisle on this important bill. I look forward to seeing it signed into law.
There are some changes coming to Medicaid. A recent report from the advocacy group Hoosier Action found that one in three Medicaid recipients was unaware that they even need to go through a redetermination this year in order to keep their coverage.
Are you or someone you know receiving Medicaid benefits? Not sure what these changes mean for you and your coverage? Our office can help. Reply to this message or give us a call at 317-283-6516 if you have any questions.
Success story of the week:
“I wanted to thank you for all your hard work in finding a resolution to our tax issue. We are happy to inform you that we have received the check. We have spent countless hours and money working with multiple tax professionals with no result. Your ability to cut through the red tape in such a relatively short time has been a blessing for us. Thank you so much for your public service.”
– District 7 Constituent

2023.06.08 21:49 egmeabudhabi Exploring the Economic, Environmental, and Operational Advantages of Electric Vans

Electric vans have emerged as a game-changer in the commercial transportation sector, offering a range of benefits over traditional gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles. In this blog post, we will explore the economic, environmental, and operational advantages of electric vans. From cost savings and reduced emissions to improved operational efficiency, electric vans are revolutionizing the way businesses operate their fleets. Let's dive deeper into these advantages and understand why electric vans are becoming the preferred choice for sustainable and efficient transportation solutions.
Economic Benefits
Electric vans bring significant economic advantages to businesses. Firstly, they offer lower operating costs compared to conventional vans running on fossil fuels. Electricity is generally cheaper than gasoline or diesel, resulting in reduced fuel expenses. Additionally, electric vans have fewer moving parts and require less maintenance, leading to decreased maintenance costs and longer intervals between servicing.
Moreover, businesses can take advantage of various government incentives and grants available for transitioning to electric vehicles (EVs). These incentives can significantly reduce the upfront costs of purchasing or leasing electric vans, making them more financially feasible. Additionally, some regions offer tax benefits and exemptions for EV owners, further contributing to the economic advantages.
Environmental Benefits
One of the most compelling reasons to switch to electric vans is their positive environmental impact. Electric vans produce zero tailpipe emissions, helping to reduce air pollution and combat climate change. By replacing conventional vans with electric counterparts, businesses can significantly contribute to improving urban air quality and public health.
Furthermore, electric vans contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. As the electricity grid becomes cleaner and more renewable energy sources are incorporated, the environmental benefits of electric vehicles become even more significant. By charging electric vans with renewable energy, businesses can achieve a truly carbon-neutral transportation solution.
Operational Advantages
Electric vans offer several operational advantages that can enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of commercial transportation. Firstly, electric vans have instant torque and provide smooth acceleration, resulting in better driving performance. This aspect is particularly valuable for urban environments where quick acceleration and maneuverability are crucial.
Additionally, electric vans operate more quietly compared to their combustion engine counterparts, reducing noise pollution in cities and residential areas. This is particularly important for businesses conducting deliveries during early morning or late evening hours, ensuring minimal disturbance to residents.
Electric vans also benefit from regenerative braking technology, which converts kinetic energy into electricity and stores it in the battery. This feature improves overall energy efficiency and helps extend the vehicle's range.
Furthermore, the growing charging infrastructure for electric vehicles enhances the operational feasibility of electric vans. With an increasing number of public charging stations and the ability to install private charging infrastructure at business premises, range anxiety becomes less of a concern. Businesses can strategically plan their routes and ensure access to charging facilities to optimize their operational efficiency.
Electric vans offer a range of benefits, making them an attractive choice for businesses seeking sustainable and efficient transportation solutions. The economic advantages, such as lower operating costs and government incentives, combined with the environmental benefits of zero emissions and reduced carbon footprint, make electric vans a compelling option. Moreover, the operational advantages of instant torque, quieter operation, and an expanding charging infrastructure further enhance their appeal. As businesses embrace electric vans, they not only contribute to a cleaner and healthier environment but also improve their operational efficiency and financial bottom line. The future of commercial transportation lies in the electrification of vans, and embracing this transition brings a host of advantages for businesses of all sizes.

Everyone's Crushed is absolutely one of my favorite albums of the year so far, and it's been incredible to watch their rise ever since the release of Structure in 2021, one of that year's best albums that only grows stronger over time, a feeling that holds over to their new LP as its strengths continue to rise to the surface. If you haven't given it a listen yet, well you've got until Sunday as the duo of Rachel Brown (they/them) and Nate Amos (he/him) join us for an AMA on the 11th!

2023.06.08 21:38 Affectionate_Hat494 What scenario is the most evil?

"Charlie" and "Theresa" are a married couple and they have seven children together in New York City. They met as teens, but lost contact because Charlie had a little girlfriend. When they reunited fifteen years later, Theresa is a divorcee with three children from her ex husband, Nick. Theresa has mental health problems, and despite loving Charlie, she still feels hurt about his actions from when they were teenagers (he made some mistakes that really screwed Theresa up emotionally). Turns out, Theresa has a child from another man (not Nick).
Scenario A: Theresa had a child after her divorce from Nick, but before she reunited with Charlie. The man she had children with, Damien, is one of Charlie's (enemies?). Damien tried hitting on Theresa when they were teenagers, and it resulted in Charlie accidentally revealing he liked Theresa when he had a girlfriend. In this scenario, the child will be raised by Damien, so the child grows up in Missouri. By the time Charlie finds out, Damien junior is an evil teenager.
Scenario B: Theresa cheats on Charlie and has a child with Peter. Peter lives in Theresa's hometown, and they went to middle school and high school together. Peter is a convicted felon, and despite Theresa's willingness to be intimate with him, she doesn't want her child to be raised by him or his family. Peter and Charlie have similar hair and eye color. As a result, she passes Peter's child off as Charlie's, and this child doesn't learn of their parentage until they're a teenager.

7840HS / 2.8K, 16:10, 100% RGB 120Hz Display screen / 16 GB LPDDR5-6400Mhz / 1 TB SSD / 499 EUROS !!!!!!
OK, here there is the NOT OVERPRICED Zen 4 7040 4nm Laptops !
MECHREVO The Mechanical Revolution 7840HS2.8K, 16:10, 100% RGB 120Hz Display screen with High Color Gamut16 GB LPDDR5-6400Mhz1 TB SSD
1.4 kg, Type-C usb3.2 ports 2 , usb3.1 ports 2 , M.2 ports 2 , webcam, microsd , wi-fi 6 , bluetooth 5.2 , battery 60Wh , 100W Type-C Adapter Charger
Promotion is: 3799 Yuan meaning 499 EUROS !!!!!!
Without Promotion is 549 EUROS !!!!!!
REMEMBER Apple M2 at promotion you can find it for 499 USD / 8GB +256 GB SSD.
It will be very UNWISE to pay for OVERPRICED Zen 4 7040 Laptops or MiniPC !
Anything with a price tag over 600 USD IS PURE OVERPRICED !
If You do think with Your wallet and You are addicted to overpriced junks then there is no cure for you !
But if you are a mind thinker and you are cool and calm and most important wise, then you will see that buying in hurry and overpriced is not for you !

ALSO check for official GLOBAL launch of
GMK 7940HS
GMK 7940HS Price tag will be UNDER 500 EUROS !
Starting price 407 EUROS !
Now distribute this post for others to NOT fall in manufacturers OVERPRICED TRAP and so to NOT buy Zen 4 7040 series at over 600 USD or 1000 USD or a lot more as some manufacturers do to scam you !
Care for others too !

EDiT 1: So any overpriced ryzen gen 4 7040 series MiniPC or Laptops, anything above 600 EUROS will stay in/on shelves and on inventory warehouse / non fire hazard pallets !
EDiT 2: The only person who can force the manufacturers to not overprice or extreme overprice stuff is You, and in order to do that You must unite and dismiss any trace of overpricing.
Exemple: Lenovo has made on Q1 2023 billions of usd in profit
And that is easy to do billions of USD in profit since Lenovo is selling an everything with add up to 200% ! Or Zen 3+ series over and way over 1000 USD !
How can You stop manufacturers from scam You, it's easy as i am gonna give an example: Here You see i did create this post due of fact that i have friends who got scammed by super overpriced junks from Lenovo, ACER, ASUS, HP, DELL...Some of my friends had hurry fever, as buy fast now before someone else does.
How can You help, easy just send this post to manufacturers alike Lenovo, ACER, HP, DELL, RAZER, MSI and others and show them that a premium laptop with 7840HS / 2.8K, 16:10, 100% RGB 120Hz Display screen / 16 GB LPDDR5-6400Mhz / 1 TB SSD can truly cost way bellow 600 EUROS !
In this way if thousands of mails they get then they will become aware that they can't keep up pumped up priced by 70% or 170% anymore !
So You and Your family or friends will not have to bother anymore or worry about spending your last money for overpriced stuff !
Be aware and take action now, give a damn if You care and do care helping others too !
ps: for the tech sites that are reading here, you can help most if your post is not sponsored by manufacturers as to create a post (no need to link to this post on reddit here, just make you own post) saying look is possible for last gen laptops like 7040 series to NOT be overpriced ! Your post will help thousand of buyers and you site will gain respect from someone close by maybe a family member or a close friend too or even a completely stranger !
It is in your power to do so !
EDiT 3: Please be objective and try to think that Zen 4 Phoenix is very good at realistic price tag and next year if You want to see realistic price tag of Zen 5 Strix Point with 16 CU's up to 40 CU's and with 32 GB or more then You will be better send those mails from now as to make manufacturers aware to never again hard pumping their stuff !
As for now if You do ignore this and not take action then be sure that your beloved Laptop or MiniPC manufacturer like Lenovo or ACER or ASUS will release their variant of Zen 4 7040 Series at 500 EUROS too + 170% more overpricing bonus so it will be like 1350 EUROS, because they do care for Your wallet !
EDiT 4: ASUS Today 07-June 2023 released their "BEST" ryzen 7735H ASUS ExpertCenter PN53
Now compare ASUS price vs GMK 7940HS where ASUS 7735H will be overpriced with what % + % = 170% more ?!
And again ASUS releases
ASUS Chromebook 14 (CM3401) laptop is equipped with a 14-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display (most probably TN screen aka Twisted Nematic, that will harm Your Eyes forever), AMD Ryzen 3 7320U chip, 8GB of memory, and 128GB storage everything at just 499 USD !!!!!! For You yeah because ASUS cares for You, ONLY 499 USD WITH ryzen 3 7320U !
Imagine just how many people will get scammed by ASUS ! Many parents with just enough money to pay the bills and to please their children's will get scammed by ASUS ! I do personally know friends and people who spent their last savings to buy an Celeron and they had to eat only tea and bread, and some use their laptops only once per week and they cover it with blanket against dust !
More old people grandparents i saw and heard going to sell in house things or make loans in order to buy an laptop for their grandchildren(s), imagine old people with small income pensions are doing anything to please their grandchildren(s). For them they youngsters joy in their eyes is everything and worth even their last income !
Don't You feel sad knowing that they are being scammed buying overpriced and with even a bad for health display and the youngsters will have over the years eyes health problems !
Yes many are poor and it's no shame in to be poor but it's a damn shame to be scammed by the big manufacturers with their Q1,Q2,Q3,Q4 earnings of multi billions of USD dollars !
People this post is NOT about votes or to look good is about to open Your EYES and Mind and to SEE that You are being scammed by greedy corporations !

2023.06.08 21:31 flyingSavage Experiences

And today marks the end of my 25 day long vacation.
Visited 5 cities, had a lot of experience with my friends and family. Met a lot of people from different background.
I have met my college friends after 5 years and it was just so awesome and the best part is that we took off right where we left. The way we synced together was just the best. We enjoyed carefree just like the good old days. I will any day have a trip with them. They are precious. ❤️.
The next trip was w my family and it was another great one. Explored the Himalayas. I had planned the whole thing and I am so glad to say that all of it went so well and better than what I expected. I have spent so much quality time with my family in this trip. It had made me more confident and more responsible person and I will carry this forward. 🛐
All the people I had met during the trip have left an impact on me as I came across their thoughts and ambitions opened up so many perspectives of seeing the life that we live. I have so much more to explore, so many risks to take, so many places to visit and so many more people to meet. 🙏
I have also made a online friend which was unexpected. Never vibed like this with an internet stranger. No more a stranger, We bring out the best in each other. I hope/wish we cling for life and meet someday down the line. 🫶
What's next for me
Oof, here comes the hard part.
  1. Health>>>>>>>> : Aiming for fitness will be the at the top of the list. Inspired by my friend ., What a change in personality I have seen. Mind = Blown. I hope that I can setup a schedule and stick to it.
  2. Job : Tripping around the country carefree and jobless was so much pleasing to the brain. After working 5 years this was a great break but after flying all the savages must land. So, yeah, job hunt will have to start now immediately.
  3. Finances: Have to reshape my personal finance and make better decisions. Need to make more calculated decisions.
  4. Love: Find your tribe and love them hard. I want to fall in love with someone and spend the life together with them. No more hardships. But first need to fix the 1st and 2nd point.
  5. Travel: After completing/sorting the 4 points, I will travel the world for life. Period.
All for all I know that, life will always put you in the right place wherever you were meant to be. So I just need to hustle myself and follow my goals.
