Beginning on a Budget

I meditate on life and ask myself, "what can I do to make life better, more fun, more meaningful, more exciting". Yep. That's me. I'm forever trying to top up my glass, a glass half full is not my style and I love my glass to be mixed like a cocktail, shaken not stirred, with lots of fun, adventure and experiences.
