Just a quick savings update with Chantel!
And also, HERE‘s a link to the blog I mentioned in the video 🙂
Keep an eye out for more vlogs coming soon… Itinerary vlog with Grace will be next 🙂
Being a full-time musician and student makes it a great deal harder to save up for anything. I get the occasional gig here and there but as many of you know, unless you’re a worldwide superstar, being a musician doesn’t pay greatly. But don’t get me wrong! I absolutely love what I do and I wouldn’t have it any other way however it becomes a great dilemma when you’re trying to save up for Korea!
So how can I save any other way?
Obviously, there’s having a job which would be my number one option. I quit my job last year once I became a full time student and since then my bank account gradually became emptier and emptier. Being a student isn’t cheap. Every week my public transport expenses costs me $30, I have to spend for food if I don’t want to starve myself, plus there are tuition fees. As I mentioned in my 10 Ways to Save For Korea post, I’ve begun packing lunches for uni but occasionally I do want to eat some nice hot food and sometimes my packed lunch just isn’t enough. Either way, if I’m packing lunches or buying at uni, I’m still spending none-the-less.
Anyway, I’ve applied for a few jobs and I have an interview on Thursday! (Woo!) I’ll just have to deal with being an employed full-time student somehow.
Regardless of what I’ve mentioned above, here are some things I’ve been doing to help fill up my piggy!
My band Enter the Ninja and I have been gigging around Sydney since late 2010. However, until the day we get as big as Big Bang, originals bands just don’t earn nearly enough but it is a great way to save on the side. Fighting~!
Anyway, Piggy is getting fatter and fatter! I’ve just got to keep finding ways to feed her!
