Hey guys so I don't know where to begin I'm 27 years old and I just came to the realization of how urgently I need financial freedom so currently I have 312.00 and maybe about 10 or 15 dollars in change in my change cup in my car outside so what's my point well guys this is all I have to my name no savings no nothing but the funny thing is I been living like this.

since I was 17 paycheck to paycheck I never knew how scary this was till today I don't know what happen maybe I've been blind this whole time or just sleep on like but I'm WOKE now if my car breaks down IT'S OVER WITH IT, if I get hospitalized ITS OVER WITH, If anything really disrupts the flow of my life in a negative way I could be homeless.

How can anybody live the life I live how can I live the life I live I've always been able to just be able to make it by always had enough money to go out to eat sometimes, shopping here or there, maybe a date, pay rent on time and live my life and just work go home do some hardcore gaming maybe invite a young little tenderoni over "NETFLIX & CHILL" and then proceed back to the online gaming.

And that is my life to this day 6/3/2018 I have no savings, one car, my own place with a roommate, and I only have 312 dollars to may name till I get paid how scary is that I lived like this for so long its numb to me I'm hardened to it its like another Sunday morning but I'm like a glass cannon when I shoot I destroy S*** (side note hey admins can we use profanity in this community I'm just asking for story telling purposes since I'm telling one of my life side note over) but I can be easily destroyed I have been living like this for ten years depended on jobs just to get by.

Its time for me to grow up and I and build something that's going to get me out of the rat race I been running in it long enough 10 years is a long time its time to switch gears this community is the only thing I can do affordable this is it for me I'm giving this my all and going to keep grinding!
