[IMPORTANT: From today (December 28th 2020) every donation I will receive through this platform will take part in the "Travel Fund" to finance my first after-pandemic trip!After a couple of months of pandemic unemployment, this month I've been so lucky to work a little bit, I had a couple of shootings and I decided to do something I've never done before: save money.
If you followed me for a while, you already know that I don't come from a rich family so I don't have savings. I see myself as a startup. I invest everything I have because I've nothing to lose, my life is a constant all in, sometimes I find myself with less than 10€ in my pocket but I feel ok because I tell myself: "don't worry, you've sown your money and you will soon see the result".
And, to be honest, I often see the results. When I'm broke, I always survive because I receive some job proposal. And when I don't receive a proposal, I create an initiative on Instagram and I raise some pocket money to pay the grocery store.
Now we're still in the middle of a pandemic, and what I miss the most is travelling. So I was thinking: "Ok, we can't travel and I really suffer because of that, but what if in a few months we will be able to take a flight again? What if I will be so broke to can't afford a flight?"
That could be a problem, so I decided to create a fund.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not saving thousand of euros, at now I saved just 50€. But they are the first 50€, and even if it looks ridiculous, it means a lot for me. And I hope to save enough to take a flight as soon as we will be able to do it.
I need that.
I need to travel.
And I have to be sure to be able to do it, as soon as possible.
It really made my day, in less than half-hour I already saved 70€, my fund grew by 30% just because somebody understood what I said and felt so generous to take part in this experiment.
