2: Education The school I went to was the University of Georgia in Athens. This is the school I chose because I wanted to be a legacy in my family. I majored in nursing to become an anesthetist. This job is important to me because I could have a persons life in my hands and its my job to save them and help them recover.
5: A nurse anesthetist operates anesthetic equipment and runs medical history on a patient for the right amount of anesthesia. The annual salary is $100,000. This job is very dangerous and requires skill but my job is to save and protect my patients.
6: Standard Living | My address is 355 Riverbend Pkwy., Athens, GA 30605. My rent is $399. If I live here I'll have to pay an extra $399 for other fees and deposits. Some features in the apartment is a refrigerator, free wi-fi, washer and dryer. I am paying for electricity, cable, phone, and water. Electricity is costing $125, cable is $16 for a Netflix and Hulu plan. My cell plan is $80 and water will cost me $50.
8: City Overview
9: I have graduated college and plan too stay in the city of Athens Georgia. I want to stay here because I want to be a legacy for my family and to start a career in Athens. The overall population is 118,999 people. The towns that are near by are Bogart, Winterville, and Watkinsville. The best entertainment is Sanford Stadium for the college football season. The crime in the city is an overall average.
10: Household Items
11: The apartment I bought already has a refrigerator, stove, washer, dryer, and a dish washer. With all of that I didn't have to spend my money on those objects. With the help of my parents, they gifted me 3 expensive items like a T.V., computer, and a Xbox so that I can use it for my Netflix and Hulu. With the help of my parents they also gave me a $2,000 graduation gift. My goal was to not go over that amount. I added $819.04 to my budget and used that money for my payments that needed to payed.
13: I have chosen a Toyota Prius for my transportation. The car is used and will cost me $17,500. In order to reach that price I will have a 72 month loan agreement and will only pay $283.43 a month. My Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 5% and the interest payed is $2,807.96. The total pay will be $20,406.96. I chose this car because of the gas, it would only cost me $91.00 a month on gas.
14: Grocery List
15: My grocery list cost me $184.00 this month. During the layout I constructed categories: breakfast: $37, lunch: $80, hygiene: $50, snacks: $13, and other: $4. The majority of my funds was spent on lunch because of meat. I believe this list is sufficient for feeding myself for a full month. One thing I learned while constructing this list is that Wal-Mart is expensive.
16: Entertainment and Miscellaneous
17: After paying all my bills I have $3,951.71 left to spend on entertainment and miscellaneous. I chose to set aside a certain amount of money for my savings, car maintenance, entertainment, clothing, and fast food. I chose to set aside money for these things because I can use it as an emergency fund when something doesn't go right.
