Icon7 My first blog!!!

Hello boys and gals, I am writing to you today in order to share with you my blog where I've written my first article.

My dream is to travel the world and write about it on my own website. I hope this is a step in the right direction .

It would be awesome if you guys could check it out and give me some honest criticism and it would mean the world to me if you could even drop a follow . So without further ado, here is the link:

Thank you and have a nice day

the only piece of criticism i can give you is to look at jobs/money from more than just the perspective of a young student..

jobs don't exist to put a roof over your head - they exist to meet the needs of consumers so they in turn can consume what they'd like in order to live comfortably. true, don't look/continue on with a job you can't stand doing.. but just because you don't "love" it doesn't mean you should ditch it. some people start out with jobs they absolutely enjoy doing.. that's definitely a perk.. but sometimes people don't have that option because they need to support more than just themselves. This forces them to take a job that pays more because it's less exciting (and harder for the employer to fill otherwise).. that doesn't make their decision terrible - because even though the individual doesn't enjoy the job itself, they find joy in what they bring home or what they're able to do because of it.

@Blankboi Your one liner, 'Life is quite boring when your only purpose is to study' is quite discouraging, for how else are you going to learn for a job in order to earn a decent wage to support you and your family? Learning - studying - is a privilege and the more you learn, the more likely you are to succeed and pass your exams.

For sure, prices will always increase, but we all need money and that has to be earnt, often by long hours. I work like a trojan to buy my younger sisters what they need since our father abandoned mum and us for someone else. Does money bring happiness? Yes and no. Having bunches of banknotes brings no happiness except what to spend it on and bring happiness to those you love and who depend on you. My father is wealthy, but is he happy? Only he can answer that, whereas my darling and I are quite happy with less income, for our true happiness is family-orientated as we give to those in need and help my ever-anxious mother.

As you get older, so your values change. What you perceive now as possibly a waste, in years to come may become important. Therefore studying brings purpose for an exam so it may qualify you to achieve a super job which should bring fulfillment and satisfaction because you slaved hard in studying.

Zoe Williams of The Guardian said, 'We don’t live to work, we work to live. Why don’t we say so?' Her article published on 9 June 2015 is good reading.
