A life changing sum of money October 24, 2006

Posted by britishbullblog in General, Personal.

I was just thinking about my financial circumstances and wishing, like thousands of others around the world, that I had just that little bit more. However, most people are usually saying things like ‘I wish I had a million pounds!’ or ‘Wouldn’t it be great to not have to ever worry about money’. I do agree that being a millionaire would definitely have its benefits, but it’s a highly unrealistic prospect. I therefore started thinking about what would be a realistic life changing amount of money for me?

I realised that £9000 (16800 USD, 13400 Euros, 2011143 JPY) would actually be a life changing amount. Whilst this is still a very sizeable chunk of money, it’s nowhere near that million mark! £9000 would essentially allow me to clear the debt that I accumulated over my time at university and leave me with a clean slate and a fresh start, which to me would be life changing.

If you are honest and realistic, what would be a life changing sum of money for you? I would be interested to hear.


Another addiction for the list October 22, 2006

Posted by britishbullblog in Emailing, General, Internet, Personal.

I think I have officially become adddicted to checking my emails. I have heard about other people also being addicted to this, but I never thought it would be me!

It is down to a number of contributing factors. The first, I now have a couple of blogs and am always wanting to see if comments have been made. Secondly, I have now set-up my mobile phone so that I can check my emails when I’m out and about. So I now find myself always reaching for my mobile when I’ve got a few spare minutes to see if my inbox has a new visitor.

I guess there are worse things to be addicted to, but I nevertheless dislike the idea of being addicted to anything. I see addiction as a real sign of weakness.
