If you’ve read my first post which you probably haven’t (it’s okay I wouldn’t either its not very good but it’s here just in case you want to my first post yo! 😉 ) you’d know one of the reasons I’ve started this blog is because I wanted to earn money and after trawling the internet, apparently if you work hard enough and persevere and put your heart and soul and all that other stupid crap into your blog maybe just maybe you can make a living. Realistically chances of this blog thing taking off is pretty slim and honestly I continue writing on this mostly for fun and for the fact I’m a pretty bored student who likes to procrastinate.
Anyway back to the money. I’m a poor university student trying to set himself up for the future. Not that I needed to tell you I was poor you could’ve probably guessed that by the fact I spend my time googling ‘how to make money’. Now after hours of googling how to make money I’ve stumbled across lists upon lists of how to make money and I thought it’d be a fun experiment to actually try some of the things and document my experiences and how much money I actually earn doing so. I plan to make monthly progress posts on this as well as my monetary status and who knows maybe by post #2234 I’d have made it to my dream of becoming a millionaire. Some of you by now are probably thinking I’m pretty materialistic but hey I like to live and having a lot of money makes living a lot easier. I have a girlfriend I want to move out and buy a house with, I have a future family I’d like to be able to provide for, there are theme parks around the world I still haven’t visited, there’s apparently wine that doesn’t come in a box (I know crazy) that I still haven’t tasted… I could go on but I think you get me by now. Those people who tell you money doesn’t buy happiness probably aren’t buying the right things. But nah in all seriousness I thought this would be a fun little game to see whether a bum 21 year old dude with a below average IQ could actually defy the odds and make some bank. So hopefully some people want to follow me on this journey and who knows maybe you’ll get some good money making tips out of it, I mean not likely but stranger things have happened look at the current President of the United States not gonna lie America you guys really dropped the ball on that one! I’ll be keeping these posts under the Side Hustle category of my blog.
Now let’s move on to some starting statistics:
I currently earn a shitty income of anywhere between $300$-600 a week depending how much I choose to work.
Current Savings Account Balance: $3099.30 (hehe that’s right ladies form a line just kidding I have a girlfriend who’s slightly crazy lucky she doesn’t read my blog)
Remainder until goal reached: $996,900.70
Till next month where I’ll share what money making methods I’ve been trying I’m thinking ebay or uber to start off with so stay tuned for my new savings balance let’s hope it actually goes up not down.

I never got to move schools. Literally went to the same school from kindergarten to year 12 that’s 14 years at the same institution! How boring. That being said I never got to be the new kid introducing himself to a classroom like you see in the movies where the protagonists then being cool and mysterious gets the attention of the hot girl. Definitely didn’t get to be that guy either as I had a crippling fear of talking to girls and still do. Despite that I somehow currently have a beautiful and loving girlfriend (1 year in just over a week woohoo!) still baffled how that happened more on that later though.
I’m really just rambling here aren’t I? Guess that’s the beauty of blogs I can write whatever comes to my head. My point is being the new guy in this community I finally get to make one of those awkward introductions and you guys will be the new friends I make so here we go!
Hi my names Daniel I’m 21 years old currently living in Australia. I’ve always been just your average guy. In school I was never popular but never unpopular. As a kid I was quite comfortable with myself and found it easy to express myself but after moving to high school something just changed. I started doubting myself more, I wouldn’t like any sort of attention on me, I felt like I was constantly being judged. I slowly went from being a kid who really enjoyed life to a reclusive broody teenager suffering from social anxiety (self diagnosed). I really found it tough to just talk to people I had a few close friends I could be myself around but apart from that I was just that kid who’d you greet with ‘hey how ya going?’ and then move on with your life. I even started having trouble talking to my own family who I’d always been so close with. Sometimes I even thought about going to the doctor but always thought nahhh it wasn’t serious enough but looking back I really should’ve spoken to someone I was pretty miserable for a while but I just didn’t feel comfortable enough to talk to anyone I guess. Being out of school now for almost 4 years (holy shit I’m getting old!) I’m definitely finding that I’m a lot more comfortable with myself. I still find myself avoiding a lot of social interactions but I do find talking to people a lot easier and I’m make a lot more friends than I used to! Oh and I’m super close to my family again 🙂
This is really starting to become way longer than I thought I should probably change the title to ‘a lot about myself’ but writing is strangely addictive I haven’t done any since school. I’ll try wrap things up as I’m supposed to be studying. Which ties me in nicely with my next point. I’m currently studying Law. Do I like it? Not really. This is my second degree I first started off with pharmacy but after 2 years gave that up. People are always telling me to follow my passions and interests but what happens when you don’t really have any strong passions or interests and no real talents? Play it safe in some old boring degree. But enough about me I’m being selfish you’re not supposed to talk too much about yourself when socialising with people right? haha jks its my blog i can do what i want 🙂
I don’t really know how this blog is going to work it’s really just a hobby right now which I’m really enjoying. Coming from other social media like instagram, facebook etc. I was really just expecting no one to read anything I write or for some nasty trolls to pop up. But so far the blogging community has been amazing and supportive! I love hearing the nice things you guys are telling me its really feeding my ego so keep ’em coming. For now I’ll probably just keep posting you guys about my life until you’ve caught up to the latest episode and also the random things that come to my head. Everything I write is really just off the top of my head I don’t really plan anything as this is all just a bit of fun at the moment so sorry if things seem a bit rough around the edges.
Bye for now off to learn about torts (who knew that was a word am I right??)
Follow and leave a comment if you want to keep finding out more about me it’ll make my day 😀

Hi i’m bored you proably are too if you’re reading this
So… why was this blog created and what can you expect to find and or gain from reading this blog?
Simply answered this blog was created one night after I was bored out of my brain and googled how to make money… as you do. After a solid 25 minutes of skimming the generic top 10 lists of how to make money and seeing that surprisingly writing a blog was a common denominator I thought hell yeah I could probably do that. Probably not well enough to make money but as a wise man once said yolo. Which I feel doesn’t make sense as im sitting here at 11.30pm writing a blog that I’ll probably give up on haha!
To answer the second part of my own question, you can expect to find in this blog interesting updates on my interesting life and find out interesting things about me yay!
As for what you can gain probably not much. Honestly this blog’s probably for bored people just like me who are choosing to spend their time in the weird corners of the internet when they should really be doing something productive.
So without further ado sit back, relax and read my shit or don’t and find out about my life!
ps. yes i know my grammar and writing sucks hopefully that improves hey
pps. I had to google further ado. One of those funny things you say but writing it seemed kind of odd lol or was that just me? what even is ado? man I’m stupid goodnight!
