How to use money Score: 4.5 July 23rd, 2017 by a

What should people spend money on? This is a difficult issue to answer and there are a lot of attitudes toward it. Some argue that people had better spend money on vacation, while others claim that money should be spent on car or house.
If asked, both gropes would present compelling arguments to corroborate their assertions.
The answer depends on personal experiences, personality type, and emotional concerns, but as far as I am concerned, I strongly believe that a friend of mine should use all the money to go on vacation for the following reasons.
First and foremost, we will not have time to go on a trip in the future. After we graduate from the university and begin to work, we will be so busy that we will not be able to go on a vacation with ease.
Although we have much time while we are students, we do not have enough money. If a friend of mine has enough money to go on vacation, he should use it for trip.
To give a individual example, my older brother, who began to work this April for a human resource company in Tokyo, Japan, often says that he has a lot of thigs to do so he can travel only once a year.
This example clearly shows that we will not have time to go on a trip in the future.
In addition, the memories of travel last forever. I still remember that I would often visit my grandmother who died ten years ago when I was a junior high school student.
She lived far from my house, so it was a little trip for me to go to her house by myself.
She always took me a Japanese restaurant and I loved their dishes. Even now I sometimes go there.
As the above instance illustrates, I suppose the memories of travel last forever.
Traveling encourages me to broaden my horizon. Meeting people who have different backgrounds makes me notice the differences of culture. Actually, I was surprised by the way people live in America when I went there to see the sights. The United States comprises of people from various countries and they interact with each other. During my stay in America, I met a young boy from German who came there to see the sights, too. He told me his life in his country and I learned its tradition. If I had not been there, I would not have the chance to talk with a German and know the country. When I am earning my living by working as a pediatrician, having touched the local culture is very beneficial to me, because I have many opportunities to talk with patients who differ from one another.
Therefore, I am convinced of, for these reasons mentioned above, that a friend of mine should use all the money to go on vacation. Firstly, we will not have time to go on a trip in the future. Secondly, the memories of travel last forever. Thirdly, Traveling encourages me to broaden my horizon.
