The Sands of Time

Today it dawned on me how quickly time flies. I figured I’ve lived about half my life now, right? And what do I have to show for it: a ginormous credit card bill.


I have always been the type of girl who shops impulsively that does not worry much about tomorrow. I always think that there’s still a lot of time to save and plan for the future. Well, apparently I am so wrong about that! While talking with my colleagues earlier who were planning a trip abroad, they mentioned words like “savings”, “investments” and “bonds”…all of which I couldn’t relate to. I know what they mean, don’t get me wrong, but I never really made that a priority. So when I got home, I decided to take stock of my assets and liabilities, as well as to create a workable plan to get out of credit card debt and to start investing for my future. This included checking out various life insurance leads and business investments I can get involved in. This way I have something to count on when I reach the ripe old age of retirement.

    A friend of mine who is also an economics professor said that it’s good to buy T bonds.
