My College Plan
By Michael Reha
My job will be a Computer Programmer for Valve where I'll learn a lot more about making video games and hopefully soon after I'll be able to make my own, and then at that point I would continue to gather friends and trusted people to create a company. If my certain plan didn't work so much, I would stay in Valve possibly trying to be a better and better employee.
I learned about paying when it comes to houses and cars and the uses of those payment options. I learned how you could straight up pay the full amount for each or you could pay for the item overtime. I learned how different companies can offer you different interest rates along with different amounts of years. I especially learned how choosing different jobs can affect how you live and when you can buy things and just how long I can pay overtime.
What adjustments did you have to make throughout the project to stay within budget and why?
I could’ve bought the car with the rest of the money I had but I thought the bills I might have might be a little more important so I chose to pay overtime. There also were a few houses I could’ve paid a lot quicker but I realized that if I chose those it would’ve been stressful because the houses were run down and messed up. I also don’t want to live in an area where the crime rate is too large.
How does this compare your initial ideas of beginning adulthood?
I didn’t know much, but all I really knew was college and the things I needed but I had no idea about interest rates or tuition.
