5 easy ways to use your money online

So, we’re not advocating spending money you don’t have, we’re just in awe of how many ways and how easily you can actually spend money online. Since the beginning of the internet, the number of ways to splash the cash without leaving your sofa has increased more and more. And we should also acknowledge that the convenience of online spending has improved the consumer experience massively in a number of areas.

So, whether you have lots of disposable income and are bored, or you’re just interested in all the ways you can spend money without even heading out of your front door, then keep reading on.

Online shopping

Online shopping is incredible. Shopping for clothes is great because you don’t have to go into those poorly lit changing rooms, shopping for books is great because you can browse without someone who wants to get to the shelf you’re at breathing down your neck – basically, all shopping is better when there are fewer people involved!

Online shopping saw a huge increase in popularity during the pandemic as we were all confined to our homes, and that popularity has just increased even as we’ve come out of the pandemic.

People are spending more money than ever, all from the comfort of their own homes, and it’s pretty incredible to see.

Online casino games

There is a huge number of online instant withdrawal casinos that make it incredibly easy to enjoy a flutter and pit yourself against the house.

With sites for almost every casino game you can think of, from roulette to blackjack, you’re almost certainly going to find a game you like when browsing an online casino site.

Streaming services

Streaming services have grown more prolific in recent years, meaning we’re subscribing to more and more of them each year. With their own film productions going on and the FOMO of missing the latest Netflix series, it’s no wonder either.

Streaming online has come to almost replace the cinema too, with many films now being premiered on their streaming platform rather than in the theatres. Whether this is a good thing or not remains to be seen, but it is just another way we’re spending more and more money on online services.

Online sports betting

Like with the casino games, sports betting is easier than it has ever been in 2022. With a number of high-profile apps out there from well-known betting giants, you can wager on everything from Football, horseracing and rugby to Formula 1, snooker, darts or even something that little bit more niche.

Online courses

And finally, universities around the world now offer a range of short courses that you can take online. They do offer free versions of the course, but many of the paid courses allow you to expand your qualifications and add them to your CV.

And it’s not just universities, you can do courses in almost anything from language learning to coding, all online and for a small fee.

Final thoughts

The amount of money we invested online increased massively during the COVID-19 pandemic due to the inability to physically go anywhere, but this trend had already begun long before the pandemic.

There are a huge number of ways to spend money online, and there’s no getting away from the fact that we value convenience as a society.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
