I save up for my books with the weekly allowances that Mom sends us. I bought three new books last week.
Now I’m broke.
I feel like books is keeping me from eating out with friends and my siblings, buying essentials, saving up for my bank account, and keeping extra money for emergency purposes in my wallet. I created this blog because I love blogging. I love expressing my thoughts and arranging words. With my love for reading, I incorporated reviewing books. Reading and books is the life and heart of Belching Words. It’s the oil in the engine.
But with this problem, I must cut off my budget for books. You might not understand it but it’s a pain to do so. The thought of buying books, the silence of the bookstore, the thrill of choosing the right title – all of this I will miss.
I guess, this is what you call discipline. It’s choosing one thing over another. It’s controlling and prioritizing. Money management.
Mom would be happy that’s I’m teaching myself something even without her presence.
