Day 216

You appreciate money more when you earn it – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 10: 39 PM on day 216 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself a bread and jam sandwich for dinner and tweet about my campaign some more – still no luck.

Today I woke up to find that someone had made a donation to this blog and told my father that I could pay the electricity bill if he’d let me because although my parents had told me that their money was my money I wasn’t like most people of my generation who were more than happy to live off the fruits of their parents labour so I promised myself that I would contribute to the household expenses as soon as I started making any real money and I guess that is my message to all my peers out there who sleep until noon and sit around playing video games the rest of the day you have to have enough pride in yourself to say mom dad I am grateful for all you’ve done in raising me but I think I’ll take it from here. Have your parents robbed you of your self-esteem by giving you a free ride though this life?
