Being Broke!

By Sunaina Patnaik at Wednesday, April 10, 2013



It is just the second week of the month and we haven't hit the weekend yet. But I am broke! Yes, already. I am always broke. I feel happy when I receive a text from my bank saying my salary has been credited. Who doesn't? And even if I am in a deep slumber drifting into a fairy-tale world, I wake up. I wake up and plant myself in front of my laptop. I order all random stuff online and convince myself that I would use them. Obviously! Why else do you buy stuff?

And well, you get the drift. I am broke by the end of the first week itself. The remaining days are, clearly, spent in misery. Sometimes, I wonder if my bank is stealing my money. Sometimes, I wonder if my wallet has a massive chunk of hole that makes my money fly away and then, like always some sense creeps into me. I open my closet, I open my shoe case, I look at my cup-boards and I understand where my money flew. And of course, there are times when a set of bills and all fall into my lap from my wallet. The 'souvenirs' as I call them. 

And now, I know how being broke feels. It feels hungry, it feels horrid, it feels like 'you need to buy every piece of shit but you cannot because you spent a greater deal on other shit in the first week of the month', it feels miserable and it feels like..umm..you know..a Mango dress with a pair of matching Steve Madden.

But on the other hand, being broke has its own benefits. For instance, let us see the following:

1. When I have money, I have this inane urge to buy useless things. And I buy them. And throw them away once expiry date comes closer.

When I am broke, I do not have to stress my brain on what to buy and what not to buy. 

2. I do not have to worry about buying things anymore. Because I let my father buy them. Ha! :D

3. You turn responsible. No, really!

But if you are a person like me, then, you don't. How sad!

But anyway, I tell you what? Your early twenties is the phase in your life when you can be irresponsible and get away with it. You do not have to think a lot, save a lot or worry a lot. Let us just save all the trauma for the post twenties and have a happy (and should I say extravagant) early twenties right now?

Hello, mommaa?? Are you listening?
