i got paid for the first time yesterday, after three weeks at my new job. i called the bank thing and found out it was there and suddenly had this feeling that i for once earned something XD that now i had a foothold on the long slope of power and had a freedom. or so i think...
as soon as dad heard i got confirmation the money had been deposited, my dad demanded the for-emergency-only-and-gas-and-out-with-friends credit card back. but i got to thinking; if i'm paying for my own gas now, i can go about my business and i dont have to report my whereabouts, or why i took long, or even just leave the house randomly and go do whatever i want. or am i wrong? perhaps this freedom is imaginary.
how was it when yall got your first paycheck?
how did you resist the urge to spend it all at once?
(right now i'm tempted to spend it all on something with sleeves just to demonstrate that nobody's gonna tell me what to do with my money)
this thread is good for the youngsters here who are new to the workforce like me, so elder advice would be quite helpful.
