I got the Robinhood app a year and a half ago just after lockdown to give myself something to do.
It was one of the worst financial decisions I’ve ever made.
I’ve been saving money from my online teaching job and managed to save over $13,000 in the bank in a few months. Sadly, I took that money and bought some cryptos with it and now our money has dwindled down to zero. It almost seems impossible that you can lose all of your money; however trust me, it’s totally doable. I’m impatient and greedy and that cost me dearly. I could have taken that money and bought a nice HVAC unit to save me utility bills in the apartment since the winter was so cold the last couple of years. I worked so hard for that money and just threw it all away with my bad habits, I guess life can be a bitter pill to swallow occasionally. Now I have to work part time at the air conditioning store stocking shelves with smart thermostats and heat pumps and think about all of the money I wasted. I need to let go of that money because it is in someone else’s pocket now. My cooling representative told me he made the same mistake and that he is a cooling expert and not a financial expert for a reason. I guess we just need to stick to what we are good at and let the other people do it for you. I’ll just focus now on the indoor air quality levels in my home instead of cryptos for a healthier mind, body, and bank account!
