money + life sustainment
In my previous post, I opened up about my current Life situation. Please do not get me wrong. I am not begging you to help me. I want you to read and hopefully become enlightened with the current state of affairs with today’s society.
There is a lot of poor out there. More than you know, I am just honest about it. Apologies for bringing up any of your anxieties and worries, especially with COVID. It has been tough and many are suffering in ways that is hard to express.
But one must wake up. So we can work on making this world a better place.
You can do without an ‘instagram worthy’ bedroom. I wonder how many of you lost a lot of likes being stuck in your actual homes during lock down, or how many of you new influencers lost your ‘job’.
My Poor Crew did not suffer the anxiety stress that you may have suffered, We are not living on the ‘cloud’. We the poor can divulge to your real actual problems. MONEY! In the first world, there are certain amenities one needs. These are not desires.
Desires are connected to an individual’s dreams and aspirations and what fuels their motivation to reach milestones in life and pinnacles of their evolution. Your desires are personal and unique. They should not be projected onto others or be made to considered as necessities for life-sustainment. You are not going to die because you have no data left. If you can’t get a takeaway go to the shop and grab yourself some raman!
FUN FACT! How to make Raman fancy? Add some frozen veggies to it and crack an egg and pop it into the microwave.
When everyone got to know what Furlough Meant
Entitlement and benefits are sums of money provided by governing authority for life-sustainment, however, they require you to budget. NOT TO LIVE IT LARGE! Living on a budget does not mean you must sacrifice key elements that are needed for a humans survival.
With this lump of money there are things you need to pay first that does not concern your digital lifestyle. Like – RENT – UTILITY – FOOD
During COVID, a lot happened. What were your bills. What was actually left to pay in terms of subscriptions if most of your ‘life’ was put on Lockdown? I found it quite odd that many physical subscriptions, that incur a monthly fee, all of a sudden went ‘Digital’ to justify the cost.
DIRECT DEBIT – FRIEND OR FOE?
For those that are not poor, and do not have to be conscious of the amount they have in their bank accounts, tend to use the facility of direct debits. This is to remove the ‘stress triggers’ bills invoke. It is important to know one should utilize direct debit for utilities and taxes as to create a relationship with the bank and create credit (yes I was one of those that got excited with some of you putting your fico score on tinder 😛)and suitability for future loans. makes one look responsible.
WHAT IS DEBT
It is money you have asked for to pay for certain amenities and have to give back over a specific time period, as it never belonged to you. I had a telecommunication argument with a local authority 2 year back when while
an overdraft – a debt you will never get out of. Try not to get one. The UK did a statistic and found a huge sum of the population LIVE in their overdraft. SCARY TIMES, ALWAYS TO BE IN THE NEGATIVE.
I feel the day we started getting personal mobile number was the day the devil appeared on earth with a way to get people to sell their souls to telecommunication companies. It is wrong, that in our day and age, people ask for fee to have a contract be written up, let alone pay to break the clause. This is Kongmong behavior. As the administrator is already being paid a salary do to this clerical work.
*Kongmong- Adjective, Synonym for Idiot, someone who is backwards in their logic – A word I created, the species that I feel would exist in the land of Mgog with the ruler Gog.
ENERGY DO WE NEED IT
Utility is a certain life sustainment. You need utilities. I urge people to stop funding Nuclear by going ‘green’. Even if you prefer using ‘greener’ methods, you are still using utility facilities to fuel your home. It was again an even sadder time when the environmentalist hooligans started dictating how fuel should be generated. You’re not enjoying the high utility cost from wind, solar and hydro are you? The energy generated isn’t as powerful as what you are used to. This is pushing for greener options such as Nuclear. I say let’s go back to Oil and Natural Gas people and back to NATURE.
Living off the grid is hard, and not many succeed. I have no doubt that they end up tapping into electrical wires and steal the energy. To be kind to the planet, you must pay the price of the cost it takes to provide you with energy, or learn how to deal with the Natural Elements of the Earth, which again not many know how to do OR want to do.
Our 1st world problems of today that affects every individual on this planet today is DEBT – UTILITY – CONTRACTS- THE DIGITAL SPACE pretty much. Once you remove these does one still have enough to life-sustain? A question to think about.
THE AGE OF SELF-ENTITLEMENT
Self-entitlement is another term to call someone who is acting like a brat. Many do. I am sure many parents of little children under the age of 21 were happy to see their spawn leave the house after Lockdown got lifted over COVID. Everyone has a selfish perception on what is to feel fulfilled, but the demanding behavior of today’s world is unsustainable. There is no togetherness anymore. It is even more funny with the promotion of ‘mindfulness’ and positivity. In order for that to be achieved you must share and be kind to one another. WE ALL HAVE IT HARD.
Social media has diseased you. Did you forget how much you hated commercials. So why are you then living your life like one. This is why I say get off that cloud. When the internet is turned off, what do you have around you? What will happen to you life? We all live in a very isolated way.
Only those that had no electronic cards to pay for things to live or/and a house to shelter themselves from the outside elements are the ones to really feel affected by the COVID pandemic. I suffered dearly; I didn’t find anyone to give me a break. Or at least distance. Those without homes or shelter, were provided a room such as a hotel. But this is a luxury and not a life sustainment. You do not know how difficult it is to live in a hotel like it’s a home, when you are homeless.The annoyance with luxury items you need add ons. You only ever get to appreciate this when staying in a hotel room.
What does a hotel provide you? An upgrade of your room or home for guests in a foreign land. What do you need to pay for? Just a room. What does a room have? A bed, TV, a private bathroom, A which includes a shower, toilet, and sink. A small little fridge if you are luckyI Understand hotels did not want to help the homeless out because they smell, they’re loud. PLUS, I CAN TELL YOU THE POLICE WERE ROUND EVERY DAY! They don’t know how to function inside a property. You need some humanistic understanding with how bad it is for those that have forgotten how.
My Post for How to help homeless Sam is important. It is also good general knowledge for anyone on how to function and organize themselves at home on a budget, and who wants to live on a basic standard. When you stay on the streets too long you forget home. I still find myself having to readjust sometimes by staying indoors. Luckily for me I was a homemaker, so I know how to snap back into gear, it’s like riding a bike, but I prefer when the weather permits to be outdoors for as long as I can. It is something you get used to.
The United States upgraded the basics of what is meant to be provided in a hotel. Mini-Apartments, with a kitchenette, free amenities, low cost washing of clothes with a dryer. Bigger bottles of cosmetics. The american attitude is cool, if everyone needs to have the same, its gotta be big. Bigger is Better.
The USA knows the life of the ‘Salesman’ which is many. They live on the road. So, this country adapted to remote/nomad living. The UK hasn’t. People manage to live in their cars in the United States. It is rougher out there than it may be in the UK. It looked like to was bad due to the influx of migrants we were getting but due to Brexit this has stopped. A new order of distribution should have happened to house the poor and needy, but due to the governmental party of privatizing social housing, has caused more stress on individuals that will never get housed. There are many catch-22 in our time. I feel it is time for everyone to take a step back and look at the picture of reality we are in now. NOT where we want to be, or what it should look like, BUT WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW.
SOLVE PROBLEMS THIS WAY.
