Living While Saving
Another month has passed and new experiences are in the books.
So, a couple of weeks ago I had an interview with one of Norway’s largest investment banks. I was prepared and ready to answer any question. However, there was one thing I didn’t account for, my umbrella had a hole on the right side.
And it was pouring!
So when I took off my coat I noticed that the right side of my blue shirt was soaking wet with rainwater. If there is one place you shouldn’t show up in a t-shirt, it’s when going for an interview for an investment bank. Oh boy, those guys are so stiff.
Somehow, I managed to get the job but declined because I felt that being an equity broker wasn’t my thing. It’s too much pressure and day to day stress. Notice though, that when you are young, being an equity broker basically means talking to customers or clients on the phone.
Other than that, I spent around $1000 to buy tickets so that I’ll spend Christmas in Tokyo. Really looking forward to New Year’s Eve!
Also, this is what I’m reading right now:
August 2018 Dividend Income
The total dividend income for August landed on $164 which is a 15% increase from August 2017. The total dividend for 2018 is now 16,874 NOK or $2,006 which means an 82.78% increase from 2017.
I finally entered the green area of my dividend meter! A goal for 2018 is reached! Maybe we can reach $2500 before 2018 is done?
For the income per month, day and hour, as well as the SleepMoneyTotal, go the Dividend Income Spreadsheet
As we can see, next year, the dividend income should be $3,396 or 28,552 NOK .
Right now, I am making around 8 USD per day and for 2019, that will increase to 9 USD. My hourly wage is still very very low, but one day this number should be double-digit with respect to USD.
Well, 3 USD or 24 NOK for sleeping. At least my coffee is “free”
The main objective now is the make sure that I beat the past year’s income. For August, that’s also the case.
The accumulated income is now close to $4,000 USD. Can’t wait to reach $10,000.
Received Income Per Company
Man, I love graphs!
That’s it. We are done with August and can finally move on to a few more rewarding months.
