Budget Survival
About me

About me

I am currently an urban survivalist and environmentalist residing in Sacramento, California and aiming for a career in train dispatching. I believe in minimizing the expenditure of money so that I can spend it toward activist causes and also so it plays less relevance in my life and the lives of those at large. It is my goal to be a pragmatist with my activism, as I don’t expect anyone to do what I won’t do myself.


1991

The year I was born. My parents were lower-middle class and my maternal grandmother and grandfather were (and still are) on the US East coast. I was born on the US West coast, where my paternal side of my family resides. My mother had moved here some time before, where she met my father.

2018

The year I started this blog. I needed a place to organize my research on saving money (see Purpose of this Blog), specifically for nutrition and dieting, as I was a disqualified student needing money to finish college. The goal was to sustain myself on a food budget of $5 per day and continue my education while also saving time by making meals which were quick. Having a history playing video games, the term “min-maxing” is familiar to me. This is a blog keeping track of my “min-maxing” of daily urban survival.


And here I am now

Doing research on how best to save money for accomplishing what’s needed to secure a future for myself. I hope to give my kin quality structures on tight or small budgets, for their thriving and advancement day-to-day.
