What is money?

Money doesn’t make the world go round. The universe does. Money doesn’t always make you happy. The state of your mind does. Money doesn’t tell you what’s right from wrong. The state of your consciousness does. Money doesn’t have to be the carrot for everyone.

It’s not for me. What I do is what I love. What I love is spacing out, creating ideas, the Internet and forming new relationships to share this love.

Do you dream of bigger things?

If money is what makes your world spin, wouldn’t your world end when you die? Wouldn’t your ideal world disappear then?

We live a life of choice. The choice you make creates your world which you will live today, tomorrow and the day after.

My choice is money is what I need, not what I love.

If I didn’t have

The Girlfriend

It would feel very weird. Like there’s something missing in my life. As much as freedom is a guy’s most valuable asset, it would grow on you to realize there’s an emptiness. One of those emptiness is someone I could hold, hug, kiss and hold hands with fingers clasped. Excluding you get pissed drunk and come back with a lady every¬†other night, that is.

The Car

Running a website design company would be very difficult. And, expensive. Our affordable rail network only connects so far right now. Plus, cabbies here ain’t exactly respecting the sticker; ‘no haggling is allowed’, despite it stuck on their doors. Plus, I guess the computer gets lumped in here too since it’s a tool for business.

Friends

I’d seriously not know where I’d be. My friends have taught me through my life. I went through being a smoker, clubber and other experience to be who I am today. Without them, I could’ve imagine myself becoming a computer addict. Stuck on the computer 365 days a year and possibly on it 24/7. Brrr.

Family

Although my parents and me don’t have as many family discussions anymore, I know there’s still love. And you can’t avoid the fact, they’re your parents and siblings. They nourished and brought you up. As for me, I’ve been very lucky to have a life I wished. Instead of taking up the opportunity to study website design in the US (right after my last SPM paper), I told my parents I wanted to spend more time here with them. Crazy, right?

Money

And who’re we kidding. You can’t survive in this world without the currency. You may not need a ton to survive, but you still need that much to live. Some would agree, without money, you’d not have any of the above. As sad as it sounds, the currency is so powerful it affects you physically and mentally.

Life

I think if I didn’t have any of the above, my life would be a huge burden to the world. It would be like living my life with a lie. A lie of which I comfort myself everyday saying, “it’s okay”. While your¬†sub-conscience tortures you in return asking, “are you sure?”

Thank you to everyone who’s been there for me. The girlfriend, friends, family and all objects trivial as we continue to live in this world.
