4: Education | I attended the University of South Alabama, which is located in South Alabama. I choose this university because it was close to my family, it didn't take very high requirements to get accepted, and USA has a great nursing program. Since I majored in Registered Nursing for Pediatric Oncology, it was a fantastic school for me to graduate from. I am now looking for a job to be a nurse for Pediatric Oncology

5: Profession | Pediatric Oncology nursing is helping young children who are battling cancer. Nurses have to assess peoples health problems and needs, monitor all aspects of patients care, and modify patient treatment plans. The annual salary for this job is $73,000. | My ultimate or main goal in this career is to be able to help kids who fight with cancer and be able to make relationships with the kids I work with. Hopefully one day, maybe we can even find a cure.

6: Now that I have graduated, I plan to move to Nashville, Tennessee. I chose to live in this city because Vanderbilt Children's Hospital, which is where I plan to work is not far from where I plan to live.The city is located in the center of middle Tennessee on the Cumberland River.The overall population is 624,496 and is close to the city's of Franklin, Brentwood, and Fairview. | City Overview

7: There are many forms of entertainment in Nashville. You can visit the Country Music Hall of Fame, The Nashville Zoo, Ryman Auditorium, and Centennial Park. Most people that live in this city work in the Education or Health Care field. The crime rate for Nashville is ranked high. I would still love to live in this city and I plan on doing so.

8: Standard Living | I am going to live at 6900 Lenox Village Dr. Suite 26, Nashville, TN 37211. The rent for this apartment is $865. Before I move in, I must pay a $865 deposit. This apartment has many great accommodations and features such as a private movie theater with surround sound, a work-out room, picnic area, a playground, parking garage, and clubhouse.

9: I won't have cable, but I will pay a monthly bill of $7.99 for Netflix. I will also have to pay a monthly bill of $90 for my cellphone.

10: Household Items | The apartment I choose came equipped with a refrigerator, a washer, and a dryer. Therefore I had to purchase a TV, computer, kitchen table and chairs, a desk, nightstand, dresser, silverware, pots and pans, plates, bowls, cups, towels, sheets, laundry basket, and pillows. I had $2,000 as a graduation present, plus my parents provided my bed, couch, and stove.

11: The majority of my money went to kitchen supplies and things that were needed for my bedroom. Some of my priorities in furnishing my apartment was getting everything I need in the kitchen, along with things that would make my home more cozy to friends and family that visited. I gave up things that were not necessary for my apartment, such as a mini-fridge, tray tables, love seat, and a TV stand. I ended up getting everything I needed, plus an extra $578.90 that I didn't spend.

12: Transportation | At this point in the project, I can not afford a car. Instead, I will ride a bus to and from work and when I need to get around town. Riding the bus will cost me $1.70 per ride and $50.00 per month.

14: Grocery List | My total grocery bill for this month was $290. I spent $36 on breakfast, $73 on dinner, $68 on snacks, $49 on hygiene items, and $65 in the category of "other". A majority of my funds were spent in the category of dinner because in order to have a month supply, it was necessary to spend that much on dinner.

15: I feel like my grocery list will be sufficient for a month long supply because I got everything I need and a lot of things had more than 1 quantity. In drafting this grocery list, I learned that it takes a lot to have a month supply and it isn't cheap either.

16: Entertainment and Miscellaneous | After spending all my monthly bill, I have $4,056.84 left to spend on entertainment and miscellaneous. I put $1,000 into savings, $500 in maintenance, $400 in fast food, $150 in hair salon service, $300 in entertainment, $300 in clothes, and $200 in shoes. I felt like these prices were reasonable for each category, especially with my budget and since I had a pretty good amount of money left.
