I am sometimes afraid that I won’t be able to afford my flat, but it always seems to work out each month with paying the mortgage and utilities.
I could always get a roommate if things got tough, which would cut my monthly bills down to under $1000.
I could easily live for a year on my savings if I had a roommate and no income, but I always seem to find a way to make money if another source dries up. There are a million jobs online, including this one where I write for air conditioning companies about smart thermostats and ductwork cleaning. There are a lot of other writing jobs online but I like writing about the HVAC industry as I have spent many years working in the field. I mainly did service jobs for customers and a little bit of stocking the shelves when I began many years ago. I just lost a lot of money in the stock market and am worried that I will never get it back. It’s become a big challenge for me to see if I can regain what I lost. I wanted to buy a new HVAC system for my flat when I got the money a few months ago but decided to invest it and try to double it. Well, that didn’t work out as planned and I ended up losing 90% of it as of now. I guess the new heating and cooling system is going to have to wait till the market bounces back, which hopefully will be sooner than later.
