It’s infuriating when you can’t save

Posted by on Dec 22, 2014 in Life

I’ve been trying to save money for some time now and I actually came to a point where I had saved a decent sum of money. However, that decent sum of money has been demolished by my sister who had rented a room from a shady landlord who will not give the full deposit amount back. Instead he chooses to give only one third back of the amount, which is £150 from an original deposit amount of £450 of which I lent to my sister. I forgave her of that debt because I had managed to get a better job that paid significantly more money. Later in the year she asked for £400 to move into another place as she was disappointed with the people she was living with (her landlords), as they were arguing about money all the time. She got to the point where was fed up and just wanted to leave. And so she did, with the help of £400 that I had lent her to pay for the next deposit at her new place. I lent her this money in good faith that she’d pay me back with the deposit she had paid her last landlord. But that’s not happening as the previous landlord has fabricated damage that she had...

First Week at New Job – So far so good

Posted by on Nov 30, 2014 in Life

I started on Monday and finished all the way to Friday – yay. That’s not to say that I would not have turned up on certain days if things got a bit hairy. Generally things have gone well. I of course don’t have the same friends that I left behind at Zenith, so it has been a bit lonely as I was speaking to quite a lot of people at Zenith. Now I’ve only got a small handful of...

House Hunting In London – Nightmare

Posted by on Oct 27, 2014 in Life

Where do I begin? Finding a decent place to live in London is unbelievably difficult as you’re literally competing against others for that awesome room that you found on either Spare Room or GumTree. Am I right guys? I viewed a place in Edgware Rd only a week ago and 10 people were viewing that place on the same day as me. How much did that place cost? It cost £700 incl bills and was available as a double...

Tough Mudder Review – Epicness

Posted by on Oct 26, 2014 in Health, Life

Tough Mudder: a 12 mile obstacle/assault course that I had just completed yesterday with a bunch of other people I went with. It was utterly brutal with obstacle after obstacle putting your mental thought to work as to whether you can continue or not. Or in some cases the obstacles would rejuvenate and spur a lot more energy in you to carry on. For example, who would have thought that freezing cold water would have kept your mind off the fact...

Never live with a live in Landlord

Posted by on Sep 17, 2014 in Opinion, Tips & Advice

I’m actually fuming at the moment. I love when I can write a post on here that comes from the heart and soul. So I live with a live in landlord or a resident landlord and it has been an utter nightmare to live in this place. I mean the house is nice, my room is nice and the other flatmate is nice. It’s the landlord that is the problem. The reason I’m writing this blog post at the...

Wandering Around London

Posted by on Sep 13, 2014 in Health

Living in London can be amazing at times – especially if you live in Zone 1, where you can conveniently walk to locations that are full of joy and happiness. Today I went on a little wander around the city after having gone to the gym for around an hour and a half. Before that actually I ran for around 1.9 miles. I didn’t complete the 2 miles because that’s exactly how far I live from my gym. I’m...

When’s the right time to find another job

Posted by on Apr 26, 2014 in Life, Opinion

How do you know when the time’s right to move on and find something that you really find challenging? A colleague of mine very recently was accepted for a job at Twitter. It kind of opens your eyes as to what is available out there when someone doing the same job as you is able to get a nice job like that somewhere. You kind of think, “if she can do that, then maybe it’s possible I can find something...

Work Is Tiring Me Out

Posted by on Apr 2, 2014 in Health

 I seem to be constantly thinking about work and it’s getting quite hectic at work as we’ve won new business. I’m likely not allowed to talk any further than this about work, but I’m certainly feeling the heat. I was reading this BBC article before about stress and it has a useful stress testing tool on there. One of the first questions I answered was, “How often do you find yourself being irritable with friends and family?!” and I...

Dentists are insanely expensive in the UK

Posted by on Feb 20, 2014 in Health

£53… My dentist appointment today cost me £53! That’s crazy. It was for 3 x-rays that cost me £24 (£8 per x-ray) and a general upfront cost of £30. It’s no wonder why us Brits have a bad reputation when it comes to our teeth. I also tried seeing if whether my company provided dental insurance and unfortunately they do not, which sucks as that would have helped. Fortunately, that also covers an additional consultation which I have on...

Opened up a Cash ISA and Credit Card Account

Posted by on Feb 4, 2014 in Life

Yep, it’s true. I’ve gone ahead and done it. I have opened myself to debt and a life of monetary despair. I’ll now be poor forever paying back whatever credit I’ve borrowed from the bank using my delicious credit card. On the other hand, I’ve also opened up a Cash ISA and have chucked half of my savings into it. There’s also a special feature on the Lloyds Bank internet banking website that allows you to rename your Cash...

Weight timeline from 16th of December to now

Posted by on Jan 5, 2014 in Health

This post was meant to be all about my fitness and health; however, I’ve had to shift this towards a more distracting matter. It’s to do with living in a house share. I have mentioned this issue in specifics in an article entitled “5 Reasons Why I Hate House Sharing” and this is mainly to do with the internet being so fucking slow. It’s driving me crazy and I’m seriously going to rip the heart of the person in...
