To be honest, I did not hear about personal financing until I started working. I had some idea about saving, because I’ve always been saving for something when I was a child: a new bike, a new computer or after I have turned 18, a car. But I shouldn’t be surprised, since in this corner of the world only a few people have some financial education and the chances that you have such a person in your circles who could act as a role model in this area are very low. Unfortunately in our country most people don’t trust the banks (which is not necessarily a bad thing) and instead of creating deposits, they hide their money under their mattresses. A lot of people only use their cards to withdraw money from the ATM and still use cash when paying in supermarkets.

Even though I already suffer from complete ad-blindness, sometimes they still annoy me, especially when it comes to mobile apps when a whole screen filled with ads just pops up randomly. Not to mention those sneaky pop-ups/pop-unders in your browser. I’ve tried different ad blockers, both on Windows/Ubuntu and Android, but wasn’t very happy with them.
