Being a university student and living away from home for almost three quarters of the year, one thing you have to pick up rather quickly if you don't know how to already is how to cook for yourself.

If you are lucky enough to go on a placement year and truly experience the industry you are training for you may find it a shock to the system. Either because it's going into a working arena or because it's not what you pictured it to be. With this in mind, a lot of people tend to fall into teaching as a second choice career.

Why Is It So Hard To Manage Money?

*Contributed Post*

As a young adult, one of the biggest battles we have is with money. Nobody teaches us how to manage it. Our parents might have given us a little bit of advice, or perhaps moaned, to put some of our paychecks into savings. But as a young adult, there’s nothing we want more than the freedom to spend our own money. So it leads to some bad mistakes during the teenage and early 20 years. But then we start to realise what the real world is about. We outgrow our own homes and are driven to save money to move out. Some of you will have saved that little bit longer in order to have a mortgage, some of you will have rented. Whatever route that’s taken, we all end up at the same junction. The junction where money is hard to control, and often unmanageable. When you get yourself into certain financial situations, it can be so hard to get out of them. So, we’re going to explore why it’s so hard to manage money, and hopefully give you some tips on how you can manage it!
