my new job

Its Sunday, and tomorrow I start my new job. I don’t know what’s going on with my living situation right now. I’m feeling like I’m going to be making rash decisions without carefully thought. But oh well, I’m sure it will all work itself out in the end.

I created a excel worksheet, for budgeting purposes. Much like Bobby’s BPL MODEL, which saved my life during Business Policy (this is a class). Basically what it comes down to, is how much am I willing to save or not save at the end of the month. As long as I don’t go into the red at the end of the month, I’m sorta fine. After working out the numbers, its something like, do I want to save $600 at the end of the month or do I want to save $400? And when I look at it Annually, well, one choice looks even more undesirable. See the main difference is privacy and distance. At saving $600 a month I will be having roommates, be living quite far (not as far as I am now), but my liabilities are shared among roommates. At saving $400 a month, I have a one bedroom apartment, by myself, complete privacy, I will live either 1 to 3 miles away from work, but I have full liability for the apartment, all costs are on me.

After some rational and irrational thought I think I’m going to go for the $600 for now. Being that I haven’t even started my job and don’t know how much I will actually be earning every week, all the numbers in my Budget Model are estimates. And hopefully the difference between my Estimates and Actualls won’t be that big. I see a standard deviation of about $50. Watch it be more like $300!

The first apartment I took was an easy choice. This one is getting all complicated.

I will be changing the format of this front page soon. I want to add a ROOMMATE needed sign on the right side splitting this site down the middle and justifying to the left. Once I get a computer that can stand some heavy picture editing and web page making I will do it. Incidentally, if you happen to come across this website and are thinking about moving to Champaign, send me an email if you are looking for a place.
