1: In order to live my dream life I will have to go to college. The average cost for college can range from 15,000 a year to 25, 000 per year, and even higher for a private college. I will have to attend college for 4 years to get a BS degree in Biology. I will have a large student loan to pay off when I am done with college.
3: Although starting pay for a pharmaceutical rep can be around $40,000 to $50,000 thousand per year, they can make up to $120,000 per year. I may decide to stay in school and get a pharmacy degree so that I can become a pharmacist. Pharmacists earn over $130,000 per year. And with my dream life in mind, I would like to make more money.
4: A car payment usually runs about $350 a month for a decent car. My dream car would cost more than the average house. When buying a car you have to consider car insurance which is about $120 per month, plus tires, oil changes, and repair when needed. Gas is also a huge expense in owning a car.
5: Owning a home is very expensive. An average mortgage on a $200,000 home is about $1,200.00 per month. My dream home in this picture would probably be more like $5,000 per month. There are many other expenses that come with owning a home. Utilities on an average home would be around $200 per month. On my dream home it would probably be at least double that amount. Other than electricity, you also would have to pay for water, sewer, phone services, and cable tv. Those could add up to an additional $250 or more per month. Property taxes and homeowners insurance also have to be paid once a year.
6: Vacations can be very costly. You have to figure on traveling expenses whether you drive or fly to your destination. Either way is not cheap. An average flight is about $350 dollars. Multiply that by how many you are traveling with and it starts to add up. You may also have to rent a car once to get to where you are going. You also have to consider food, which most likely you will be eating out every meal. Hotel accommodations can be very expensive depending on where you stay. You will probably want to do things when you get to where you are going. Like snorkeling or museums. Don't forget your souvenirs.
