Being Broke in London will happen a lot....loooot times ...!
London is one of the most expensive cities worldwide. Rent is really high the most of the times and whatever you want to do (entertainment, fun, pubs, drinking, food) you need to pay. Sometimes is like we are just breathing and we pay in London ! Anywhere ! London has two sides its either you love it and you hate it sometimes at the same time. Of course it seems more fascinating being a Londoner but do not forget London has a good pay rate so it will help a lot if a job opportunity comes to you do not leave it ! Jobs in London are many , however its hard to find one as its really competitive .
My suggestion on that is never give up on sending lots of CV and if you really need a job try anything. It does not matter what kind of job is it money is money and London is paying well.As a student there will be lots of times that we will be broke and most of the times we are trying to save some money. Trust me...in London is quite hard ! There are good money however the money we earn we give all of them to : rent, transport, food shopping, travelling around in UK etc. However my manifesto personally is that it's not all about the money. I hate thinking that whatever I do money is on my mind ! Try to avoid thinking in that way because the only thing you will succeed is being miserable and never satisfied with what you have. Money its okay , yes we need money to live but it doesn't make you more human or gives you more values.Do not forget your humanity.Its just simple! Try to find a part time job as well as a student and you do two things at the same time , so you are having a work experience as well on whatever you do ! Never give up on that-build a strong CV and do not let down yourself. It will be worth it!
