Congratulations, you are about to do some research on what it will cost for the life you want to live! 


You are about to embark on a very exciting life completely of your making. Unfortunately, the math that you thought you left behind in the classroom is still going to come in handy!


Extra Credit- Set aside about 30 minutes to sit and talk to your family members (grandparents, uncles, or other adult in your life). Tell them about this project and ask them to talk about your family budget. What other areas do they have to spend money on that we did not include in this project? Write down some interesting information that you found out by talking to your parents. (Hint, there should be a wealth of information to choose from and you should be able to write quite a few sentences!) Insert this information into your slide presentation. 


First you will need to pick a career that interests you. You may pick  a job from your career insert survey. 


Keep in mind that you have no experience in your career so your salary will be the lowest offered. You will use search engines to explore all real jobs and housing that is available. 


Once you are ready to start your life, you need to create a budget from your monthly salary slides and google sheets. The information on each of the following pages of the template will help you create your budget. You will definitely have to make some choices so get ready!
