For someone in the field of finance, I am terrible when it comes to budget and estimates! My sister would often tease me about it. I am good with others but I am terrible when it comes to my own. My explanation for that is this: I am careful with the finances of others because if I lose even a buck of it, I will be liable. Whereas when it comes to my own finances, whether I am accurate about it or not, it’s mine and I get to suffer if I am wrong in handling it.
Lately, though, I’ve been missing the budget again and again. I kept blowing it and using the money I am saving up for my brother’s tuition on other things. The coming remittance was intended for something extra. But because I blew the savings for the tuition, it is now intended for that.
