It is widely believed and agreed upon by any working professional that “Your Salary is Credited” is more appealing than an “I Love You” text from your loved one! And if it’s the question of receiving the very first salary the anticipation and the excitement raises to a whole new level.Working those long tiring hours can be a real bummer but the very thought of receiving the paycheck is what keeps us going. The golden dreams about all the infinite number of things we will do with the hard earned money makes our lives worthwhile. The rough phase before setting your hands on your beloved paycheck is filled with wishes and dreams.
Here are the three things all girls dream and ponder upon before receiving her very first salary!
1. Shop till You Drop
We girls are excellent planners! We plan and rehearse the exact things we are going to do after getting the money in hand and shopping tops the chart no doubt. Whoever said money cant buy happiness had no clue where to shop from! Countless stops at store windows, browsing through clothes and accessories on online shopping portals and secretly whispering to the items, “I’m going to get you!” is all we do. The whole idea of buying anything without being answerable to someone else is a thrill in itself. Adding items to the cart without checking the price tag is mostly the reason most girls dream of getting a job and put in all the effort and hard work!
2. With Money comes Responsibilities
When the shopping spree dies down a notch, our sense of responsibility comes into play. Getting a surprise gift for your ever supportive parents becomes the priority. The contribution of parents is immense but we all try and give back a little to bring a smile on their faces. Buying them clothes or treating them to a peaceful vacation are few undeniable ideas that have crossed our minds. Gifting a token of thanks to our benefactors and well-wishers or even to our ever supportive pet is sure to be in the list too.We can never deny that the idea of investment or spending on insurance has never crossed our mind. But why worry now? We have many more paychecks to set out hands on!
After all the excitement dies down and we think clearly with a calm mind; spending money on oneself becomes the only relevant idea.Spending on oneself is a luxury in itself. Treating yourself to a rejuvenating spa, getting an inspirational tattoo (Let’s face it they are both an expensive as well as a long term investment), taking a long vacation alone or treating yourself to a luxurious restaurant can be enriching and motivating; making you ready to take on the next grueling month ahead.
