PSY Breaks Out Catchy New Dances Moves – Napal Baji

Posted by on Dec 1, 2015 in Music | 0 comments

DAMN YOU, YOU GLORIOUS KOREAN DANCE HERO!

Psy has done it again! Forget the one or two similarly weird, but failed tracks since Gungnam Style. Psy has made a new track that is going to annoy you all summer long. It took us long enough to get over doing that stupid horse dance, and now I think we are going to have to deal with something similar. I don’t think it is going to be to the same “WTF-kill-me-now” magnitude, but I still think this one is going to stick for a bit.

Oh lord have mercy upon our sin-fueled souls.

The real reason I am sharing is this so that there is at least one other person that jams along with me when this comes on. Don’t fight the feeling – just give into those weird, compelling Korean eyes that seem to take over the world one weird dance move at a time. DAMN YOU ASIAN PERSUASION!

Saving Rands To Make Cents Of It All

Posted by on Jul 21, 2015 in Financial | 0 comments

Someone praise me for my brilliantly cleaver titles! No? Really? Rude.

Moving away for your disdain for genius, let’s talk about something that is really smart: managing your money properly. I am normally tighter than the thriftiest Scot with my money, and at any time I can tell you how much I have in my wallet and bank account, but that is just my personality, and I am very consciences with my finances and where money goes (*cough* the bar *cough*).

However, I didn’t actually follow a budget that I had set in stone, so with this month being National Savings Month, I decided to gooi some numbers into one of those fancy Excel docs. You know, like a pretend adult would do.

HOLY CRAP ADULTING IS DIFFICULT. There are some expenses that you just don’t really pay much attention to, but they really start to add up once they are down on paper <- specifically toilet paper! A really good bit of advice that I got from Ben, (the man, the legend), was to plan out a budget for Jan to Dec and plan each month out. There are always those sneaky fuckers that come around once a year that normally accost your wallet and stab it before it even has a chance to defend itself – such as car services, trips to the dentist, doc etc. Here are my 5 tips to helping you budget

  1. Set aside retirement savings first – no R100pm isn’t going to cut it, but it’s better than nothing.
  2. Set aside savings every month for a rainy day/unexpected expense.
  3. Plan your budget for a year at a time, rather than a month at a time – don’t forget the once off expenses and filter those bad boys in!
