We said this blog was going to be about honesty, and giving you guys what we really think. So, to keep it a buck, being broke sucks. With what we show you guys on social media you would think that we are two girls who do whatever we want, and have all the money to do so. Which for the most part is false. We just know how to make things work for us. Being in college is funny because for the most part we are all broke, and we all get on twitter and try to flex for each other to make it seem like we all go it. I’m here to let you know that it’s all fake, and I’m a master at finessing the system. Okay, so it’s not all just finesse, but I will say that budgeting is a huge part of how I survive. It’s all a matter of what you want to spend your money on, and are you willing to sacrifice some things for what you really want. A trip to LA is something I wanted to do, and I made it happen for myself, but I had to sacrifice some things. Going out with friends, buying a pair of shoes, cutting back on a meal.. Or two. Though in the end it was all worth it. I’m not saying starve, but figure out what is important to you, make it a goal, and see it through no matter how dim it might look.
A couple of weeks ago I found myself extremely frustrated with my progress, and feeling stagnant. If you know L&B that's not an emotion we take kind of. So, I started to unravel my emotions, and why I'm feeling this why because i'm certainly doing what I can. Through conversations, and thoughts I realized it's because I haven't been investing enough of my money. Listen folks, money is the key. It's not something you should praise, but just like when you transition into being an adult. You know if you break something you pay for it, so you care for something that much more. I'm realizing that's the type of care we should have for our craft, and so with that being said... I'm trying to make coins into dollars. So in turn when I realized I needed to put my money where my mom mouth is... that hoe got ate... quickly. But, hey you make money to spend it, and I just had the time of my life in LA. Experiences will always be there, but money comes and goes. Don't be afraid to struggle, it's good resistance. I'm bougie tho... So, I'm still learning that concept.
