So much to do…It’s stressful. I don’t want to think about it right now, but w/e, I’m posting here…Ok.
Cost! $200/month is highly affordable.
Size! So much friggin space, it’s like living at home still.
Pets! They allow anything. Nice.
Timing! Graduation party means $$$ from relatives, plus my parents have offered to assist me financially.
– Location. Lancaster (Depew) is somewhat far from everyone and everything familiar to me. Approx 20 mins to half hour road trip to this general area. That brings gas concerns into mind. Plus there’s winter driving conditions, and getting to UB will be a major pain in the ass.
– Renovation. It needs work in a few places, especially the upstairs. And I know nothing about renovation.
– Timing. I’ll need a car, like, now, to make this work.
Making approx. $800/month at Dash’s…
200 for apartment
25 for electricity
75 for gas
10 for phone bill
10 for cable/internet
60 for food
100 for car (plan on paying off a decent amount for a used car)
140 for insurance
** rememember a lot of these figures look cheaper than they are because there are four people involved **
620 rough estimate per month, leaving $180 for miscellaneous bills I may have forgotten and other things. That’s a comfortable margin. My main concern is when I start school again, how can I keep a schedule with enough hours make around the same amount? Then again, worrying only leads to stress, and as I’ve said below, stress is pointless. I can make this work. I’m going to bed, I just felt like sharing my concerns.
