Things have been going very well for me these days.
Landed 2 freelance projects. 1 has potential to bring in lots of money in future, the other has been giving me a good opportunity to build my base code which caters to my style of PHP scripting, allowing me to build new apps faster in future.
I spend about 2 hours, 2~3 times a week after office hours, at any random place on my laptop working on these projects. So I usually reach home at 10pm~11pm, with enough time for a shower and some anime before I sleep.
Thanks to these projects, I found out what I want to do in future for my career. Web applications.
Things at work have been getting better. My salary has finally reached an acceptable level. I’ve been pushing for work that interests me to the point I don’t mind coming back on Saturdays to work some more.
Having less time for Final Fantasy XI now but since I spend almost the whole day during weekends on FFXI, it’s a good balance.
Also trying to go into property investing to earn more with my savings. One feasible suggestion for my low budget that I’ve gotten so far is to buy a small apartment (SGD$200k~) in Australia and rent it out to people. Much cheaper and safer than buying a condominium unit in Singapore (SGD$500k~700k) and renting it out.
Got to find out how to do this quick!
Never felt the need for earning more money until certain “incidents” that happened early this year. While I felt depressing for quite some time, it’s just what I needed for me to change for the better. Right now, I’ve never felt happier in my life.
I’ve also begun taking driving lessons. Hopefully I can buy a cheap second-hand hatchback car for myself by the end of this year.
One group of friends who are health concious invited me to jog together once a week. Maybe it’s this jogging thing that’s been giving me the energy for this busy schedule.
I like jogging. Once I get warmed up, I can jog for an hour or maybe even more. Sadly my knees start hurting after about 40 minutes. Only regret here is not jogging regularly after I started working full time. :(
