Part 1. Introduction
I am one to spend money. I have always been. There several reasons I seem to spend so much money. I love to do things on the weekends that cost money such as traveling and going places with my friends. I especially spend my money on food throughout the whole week. I live right near a good bit of restaurants that love to take my money. I could definitely be smarter with my money and I have to be in the future. For this exhibit I will try to go 3 days without spending any money. This will be difficult because I do not think I have ever gone that long withut spending money older years. I even locked my wallet up so I couldn't touch it.
Part 2. Journals
April 11th, 2017 Today is Tuesday April 11th, 2017. I woke up around 9:30 am and started my just like any other day. I hopped in the shower, got dressed and later ate breakfast. For breakfast I had a bagel with cream cheese. I hung out for awhile before heading to campus around 11:00 am. I did some homework in the library before I my meeting with one of my teachers. After my meeting I went to eat lunch. I planned to drive my car to Bojangles off campus and half way there I remembered I didn't have any money. It made me laugh but I really wanted Bojangles. Instead I just went to my place and made a sand which. The rest of my day continues and I did not have any problems with spending any money. It is in fact a Tuesday.
April 12th, 2017 Today is Wednesday April 12th, 2017. Today is a busy day unlike yesterday. I wake up like any other day around 8:00 am and head out to my history class. My history class ends and I head out to Entrepreneurship 1010. A girl was eating a Bojangles and that had me thinking. The rest of my day continued and I did not have to spend any money. I was either on campus and or at my place. I ate all my meals on campus. Wednesdays are boring.
April 13th, 2017 Today is Thursday April 13th, 2017. One day away from being Friday the 13th. I am the superstitious one. I woke up around 9:30 and started my day by working out. After working out I went back to my house for a shower. I had plans to go get food in the shower but then remembered I wasn't spending money. Thursdays are tough because I like to go out with my friends and this usually involves spending money. Instead I eat on campus and stay in for the night. No big deal because I do not mind a break.
Part 3. Reflection
This whole money spending situation was not difficult at all. Instead of eating anywhere off campus, I just ate on campus using PawPoints. It could technically be money but it is somewhat limited. A college student must in fact eat. During Tuesdays and Wednesdays I do not spend money unless it is on food. Throughout the day I only drink water and never eat many snacks. I also had a few things in my room that I was able to eat if I became starving and needed something quick. Thursday was somewhat of a bummer because I was not able to hangout with my friends but that is okay every once in awhile. To be honest it was quite easy saving money for 3 days. I know I could definitely do it for a 5 day span but I do not know about the weekends. I am going to try and practice this method every week for now on and maybe even try it for a whole week.
