2: About the Author

3: Jodi Stubbs is a student at Oxford High School. She enjoys listening to music, playing video games, and drawing. When it comes to writing Jodi likes to write about anything mysterious and has a lot of action. Jodi finds the most challenging part of writing to be coming up with the ideas and finding inspiration. When Jodi gets older, she hopes to become either a pastry chef or a professional photographer. Her advice for students that will be entering the 9th grade next year is for everyone to do all of their work on time so they don't have to go to either period and don't have to repeat the grade.

4: Virginia College in Birmingham offers a wide variety of programs, resulting in both diplomas and associate degrees in such diverse fields as office or business management, computer technologies, health & medical, criminal justice, and interior design. | I chose this college because it holds a culinary arts program that I am planning on taking. | It is located in Alabama. The estimated cost to attend this college is $19,311. This includes tuition, room and board or estimated off campus living expenses, and other fees.

5: I would like to be an Culinary Manager. The key duties for this are: -Planning, order and purchasing of equipment and food, Inventory management. -Month end break downs of cost analysis including waste. -Cultivating and continuing vendor relations. -And many more. The average yearly salary is $46,000. My ultimate goal for this profession is to be the head chef at a five star restaurant. My Plan B career is to be a Professional Photographer.

6: City overview | Birmingham, Alabama

7: I chose this city because it has many great attractions, and it is the same city that the college I would like to attend is in. Some of the attractions are zoos, parks, museums, and fun science centers. Three nearby cities are Hoover, Mountain Brook, and Irondale. The population is 212,038 as of 2012. The crime rate in Birmingham is high. - Murder: (2012) 67 - Burglary: (2012) 4,704 - Theft: (2012) 9,042 - Auto Theft: (2012) 1,042 The levels of precipitation in your city (i.e. rain, snow, etc) is around 5 inches. The average high and low temperature for fall, spring, summer, and winter: - Spring: 60 degrees - Summer: 85 degrees - Fall: 50 degrees - Winter: 30 degrees

8: Standard Living | Ascot Place

9: I am choosing to live at Ascot Place in Birmingham, Alabama. The rent for this apartment is about $844.00 a month. In order to move into this apartment, the deposit fee is $200.00. Some features in this apartment are 24-Hour Staff, dry cleaning on site, F/T night attendant, 24hr. business center, business center with equipment, community gas grill/BBQ area, and more. Other bills that I need to pay each month are gas, electricity, water/sewer, cable/Internet, and cellphone. Pets are allowed but they must not exceed 75 pounds and they can not be an aggressive breed. The address is 544 Gadsden Hwy. Birmingham, AL. 35235

10: Household Items

11: The apartment that I chose came equipped with a refrigerator, washer, and a dryer. Therefore I had to purchase a stove, TV, kitchen table and chairs, and a dresser. With the assistance of my graduation present I only had to spend $1228.23 of the $2000.00 that I got. This about gave me extra money for the month. The majority of these funds were spend on home items. Some of my priorities for furnishing my apartment were being able to cook with a stove and being able to sit on something while I watched the TV. Some of the things that I had to do without were chairs, a love seat, end tables, and a night stand.

12: Transportation

13: At this point, I could not afford a car. Instead of a car, I chose the Max buses of Birmingham, Alabama as my transportation. Taking the bus will cost me $1.50, and $44.00 a month. I wish that I could afford my own car so that I wouldn't have to wake up early to catch the bus and go to extra stops on the way to college and work.

14: Grocery List

15: My total grocery bill for this month was $107.00. I purchased items in the following categories: - Hygiene - Home - Dinner - Meat - Produce A majority of my funds was spent in the produce category because I like to make salad and many other things. I believe this list will be sufficient in feeding myself for a full month. In drafting my grocery list, I learned that I'm not able to get ever food item that I see like when I go to the store with my parents.

16: Entertainment and Miscellaneous items

17: After paying all of my monthly bills I have $597.63 left to spend on entertainment and miscellaneous items. I have chosen to set money aside for a pet and pet items because I would have enough money for everything else, I just would like to save up money to be having a pet and being able to pay for everything to be able to take care of it. I would like to save up around $400.00 for food, washing supplies, food bowls, and other things.
