Time is Money

I think everyone has heard this phrase before. But, what do people mean when they say time is money?

I  look at time this way: we were given a certain amount of credit on this, but we cannot recharge it. You know; like one of those prepaid cards. Wal-Mart allotted me about 40+ hours to make $1600/month to live on. In Korea, when it is all said and done, I make a decent living, but every second is more precious than the last. I have to use those seconds responsibly; especially if I only have 30+ hours of free time per week. This is why I read a lot instead of partying or squandering money endlessly.

I do eat out; because I consider a cheap meal at a fast food place more worth my time, than slaving over a kitchen stove for 2-3 hours. What I am saying is, lately I notice I have been getting sucked into pointless debates. Is it fun to join them? Yes. Do they accomplish anything? Probably not. Am I losing  money? Absolutely! Because time is money! I could spend that time off the Internet doing something contructive like solving world hunger or finding a cure for AIDs. :-O

 Or better yet, meeting real people and having real social interactions. Think about that.... Peace~

Chuckiesblurbs has donated to the Japanese Red Cross

In order to help raise awareness of the situation in Japan, I have decided a few months ago to donate to Japan. I am a man of my word and CB has personally donated 16,000 JPY towards the relief effort in Japan. Please if you have anything to spare, please donate to their cause. The people of Japan have got hit with a paramount 9.0 Magitude earthquake leaving close to 30,000 people dead.

A little bit ago, Japan was hit with another 7.1 earthquake and these tremors are exspected to continue for a long time. For me, Japan really is a second home and I feel like I'm obligated to do something to help them. So please, contribute what you can.  Go here if you want to donate.
