It’s been a while since I wrote here in my blog. Been thinking of what to write. Initially, I planned to write a lot about Cryptos but I think it’s not my field of expertise and I don’t really have a lot of time to research on this area so I will write more about travel and food which I do a lot.
Occasionally, I will add some topics on Cryptos. I do lots of eating, will be writing more about the places that I have eaten at which appeals to the mass rather than the niche.
Been a while since I’ve been dedicating myself into doing reading. So it’s time to reduce screen time and increase read time to better improve the knowledge I have towards various topics. I guess the next post I will write about is about the trip to the Sultan of Brunei’s palace which is opened once annually for only three days.
Writing is therapeutic. It isn’t easy to write what it’s in our mind. Every single piece of written work is unique in its way. I don’t think we could write the same 500 word essay. I like writing with my laptop more than when I write on my phone. The screen is bigger and the feeling of the keys being pressed is orgasmic.
In a world today, is it enough to have a million bucks for a start?
There are definitely lots of people who would say that a million bucks nowadays is really nothing as everything is expensive around the world. The first question is, how many of us has ever seen a real million dollars in a pile of cash in front of us? This is the case for many Malaysians who are stuck in debt with not much in their banks.
What would you do if you had a million bucks?
Would you directly buy a new house, cars and diamonds?
If suddenly a million bucks landed in my bank account (which is unlikely), the first thing I would do is to pay off all of my debts. I still need to pay for my car which is another three years. I will prepay all the insurance for my wife and I for the next decade so there is no need to worry for that.
Give 200 k to my parents. 200 k kept as cash just for emergency purposes.
Donate some to charity, maybe get some modification done for my car. Bring my family to the States and China for a vacation.
Some may use the money to open a business, but I think a having enough money and spending it slowly would last for a while if we spend it wisely. If I had a lot of cash suddenly one day, I guess, I have to still maintain my spending at current levels but keep more as cash. Use what I earn from investment to be spend to maintain the original levels of cash that I have.
Then the rest of it, I am going to invest it. I will try to spend only the money I earn from investment and to grow the whole investment. I am still looking at different online virtual investments to get into that are safe. There is currently Celsius which lets you earn around 7% per year of your Cryptos. That’s great isn’t it. Having assets that increases in value yet also paid in interest for those assets you own. Imagine that.
Currently, it’s been 298 days. It’s how long I’ve been on Steem. I have also met many fellow Malaysians here on the platform. Loving every minute on the platform being in this new experiment to test out what the future would be like. I have benefited in monetary terms and also in experience.
298 days later.
Another 0.3 till reputation 65. That was my target reputation for last year December 2019. Musing was my hope to achieve that until it lost it’s delegation.
I have met many new friends here. I have tried to convince some of my friends who are people I know in real life. The first hurdle which has proven hard for many of my friends is the keys. Most of them registered and after two weeks of waiting, they got their account but when they tried to log in, either they did not know which key to log in or lost their keys. End of story.
In a couple of weeks, my reputation would be hitting 65. I will be making a new post and also to thank everyone who has been around. There are days too which I feel lazy too but I have to force myself to get things done no matter what.
At night, when I lie in bed, I find it hard to sleep and star blankly at the ceiling having this overwhelming thought of owning lots of cryptos. Currently, I have been formulating a strategy of accumulation of BTC. I don’t know how much BTC I would have in the future, every Monday, I make it a habit to deposit some Steem into my BTC wallet. I guess, it all adds up.
If I gave up a long time ago, which was a halt from activity after I registered a Steemit account when I was still new. I did not even know what I should do at that time. It’s been a long long time. Luckily, I have not broken any rules in the platform. One thing I tend to not do is copy anyone’s writing as I think every single content written by me is a masterpiece.
My advice to those who are new here. Just keep doing it and don’t give up. Just keep trying. Every effort adds up.
