Have you noticed that we keep making the same mistakes, and content ourselves with finding new excuses?
Well, I have a friend* who while we were at the University was weekly misplacing his copy of the room key. Nearly every week we were either searching a restaurant, turning the next room upside down, mowing a lawn with our hands, upturning his shirts and trousers, aimless walking round the reading room or just thinking of where next to search. I remember a day, after managing not to misplace the key for two weeks, his mind couldn't adjust to this unusual event and made him believe he has misplaced a key that was safely tucked in his left pocket. That day, we went to every room and restaurant we had been to, we left no sand unseen along the paths we took. And when he heaved and put his hands in his pockets out of exhaustion, the key was found.

Life is like a game of monopoly, no one ever gets rich living on his paycheck alone. And for me, I have been barely surviving on my paycheck. The truth is that I have been living from paycheck to paycheck, so bad that whenever my pay is delayed by 2 or 3 days, I feel extremely pressurized and like I will need a loan to come to work the following week. Yeah, it's that bad, everyone in the office notices and they even try to assure me that delay is with the bank.

So, how have I been trying to fix this?
