I’ve always craved living an independent life. No matter how tough or nerve-wracking it seemed, ever since I could remember, I just wanted to be a grown up. The thought of going through the adventure called life excited me. I know, I sounded like a weird kid, but I’m sure I wasn’t the only one! Well, I’m here now, and although most days I question what I’m doing, there’s no doubt about how much I’m having fun. Graduating college and #adulting is one of the best experiences. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being independent, earning your own money and making your own decisions on where to spend it. I know I get some sort of thrill when I pay my bills, because it makes me feel alive.
I know a lot of my readers are in college or have recently graduated and are starting their own life adventures too… This time in our lives kind of remind me of the movie Jungle Book, how we’re all making our way out into the world, stepping out of our comfort zones and starting our own adventures. You’re probably like, “What are you saying, Camie?” but listen to me for a moment… And I’ll try not to spoil the movie here for those who haven’t seen the original cartoon — We are Mowgli. Not in the sense that we were raised by wolves, but in the sense where Mowgli’s at a point in his life where he begins an adventure; for you and me it can be finding a new job, moving to a new city, or a first solo trip abroad. We’ll meet experiences and challenges along the way, for Mowgli he met a man-eating tiger and a mean python; for us, the man-eating tiger is probably quarter-life crisis and the mean python is all our adult responsibilities, like our finances. Are you following me? If not, go see the movie. You’ll totally get what I’m trying to say here. On a budget? I know a way for you to get free tickets to Jungle Book, just keep reading until the end of this post. ;-)
Anyway, our way of living suddenly becomes one of the most important factors of our survival in this world. As much as I hate to admit it, money really does make the world go round — and as much as possible, we want to make enough to be able to survive. So, I’m excited to share with you a new Globe Postpaid myStarter Plan that I wish existed when I graduated college myself because I’m 100% sure it would’ve made things tons easier for me. You see, I’m a postpaid user, but technically I don’t have my own postpaid account. During my time (… I sound so old), it wasn’t possible for me to apply for a postpaid account unless I had proof of income. I was a fresh graduate, what was I to do? So I resorted to asking help from my father. I pay my own Globe bills of course, but any activity I choose to do with my plan like upgrading or changing it, I have to course through my father who I no longer live with. I found this quite a bit of a hassle. I was also under a monthly 999 pesos plan, which up to now can still be quite steep for me.
The good news is, Globe has found a way for you to be a postpaid user AND not have to worry about big bills or commitments! If you’re an existing Globe Prepaid user, there’s a new plan called the Globe Postpaid myStarter Plan that allows you to upgrade to a postpaid plan while keeping your prepaid number at the same time, and what’s even better is there’s a fixed-monthly payment of either 300 or 500 pesos and nothing more than that. Think of it as a hybrid of the prepaid & postpaid plans. It’s a match made in millennial heaven, and I’m so glad it’s finally here!
As if this wasn’t good news enough, there’s more: once you’ve gotten a myStarter Plan, you automatically get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a 4 day vacation trip for 4 to Palawan… AND you get 2 tickets to Jungle Book the movie! You can view more about this promo here.
