Started to Look at the Cost of My Own Place

I have to figure out what I can afford and how much it is going to consist of if I get my own place. Of course I have been sharing a place with these two other guys I was going to college with, but now I have a better job and I have got out of school. Most of all I am getting out of bed bright and early in the morning and these guys are staying out at night. It is not going to work. We have things set up nice though. We got one of those directv packages and we share the cost of it and a nice internet hook up. Obviously when you cut the price up three ways it is not that big of a deal. Of course I have to think about other things. I have an old car that I owned when I was in high school. It is a piece of junk, but it was fine for what little use I had of it while I was in school.

In fact I hardly ever drove while I was in college. I would go home to my folks’ place on the weekends when I felt like it, but it was impractical to take the car to school every day. You would spend half of your life looking for a place to park the thing if you drove it on the campus. Of course if you take the bus that drops you off right where you want to be and then you walk in to the class, it is a lot easier than driving. I would ride my bike a lot of the time too. Almost anything is a better option than driving when you are in a college campus trying to get around the place.
