Introduction

Hi, I'm Madi Benedict. I feel like my future is bright because I know what I want to be and I know what I have to do to achieve that. When I get older I would like to be an Interior Designer and have a side job as a Cosmetologist and my hobby be a photographer. I do want to go to college and I would like to Study a The University of Oklahoma known as OU. I feel Like they have a very nice campus and they have all the classes I need for me to be what I want to be. I do know the education I need because I have looked it up online before. I think my future is bright if I stay on top of things and don't get side tracked.

Reflect: The Interior Designer pays the most by far. I have always wanted to be one so I am very happy, but I have also wanted to be a photographer which is the sec on highest paying job. I want to be cosmetologist over a photographer which is the least paying job though so I think ill do cosmetologist when I'm unemployed and then try to find a interior design job cause thats what I want to be most of all.

My Color and Holland test

Color Test Results: My true color is Orange. This means I act on a moments notice, I consider life as a game here and now, I need fun, varitey, stimulation, and excitement, I value skill, resourcefulness and courage, and I am a natural trouble- shooter, a preformer and a competitor.


Reflection: I think the descriptions fit me very well. I am very fun and I am a very big competitor, I do act in a moments notice even if it is right or wrong cause during that moment when i think of something it just kind of comes out, I love excitement because i would rather be excited so my blood starts pumping and I have something to look forward to than just be told whats gonna happen then just be bored with the fact, that thats what I'm doing. I have a lot of courage and i am very resourceful because when my friends are sad most of the time they come to me so I can cheer them up but they know when they come to me I am very blunt and tell them that they ether need to fix something or they need to move on in life and just be done with it. I am in trouble a lot not really at school but at home because I think when Im at home then I have a lot of bad memories and they just kind of shows so I guess I do shoot to be bad or in trouble at home cause thats how I get my point across sometimes. I am definitely a Orange.


Holland Test Results: My test results were Realistic and Artistic.


Reflection: I am glad that I got Realistic and Artistic because you need to be those two things when you want to be and Interior Designer and a Cosmologist. When you want to be those you have to be creative. I am artistic so I don't think that will be a problem but I can always grow with creativity. I'm very happy I got those two results.

Reflect: I really just want to go to OU but if I don't get into OU then i need a back up plan. My back up plan if I don't get into OU I want to go to UCLA because it is in Los Angeles and it is only 5 miles away from the beach. If I don't get into UCLA then I will want to go to UTA because its close and it is very cheap.

Budget

I choose to live in Dallas because it is close to my family. Also there is a lt of businesses of interior design and cosmetology. I choose an efficiency apartment because Im goon be the only on living there so I don't need to pay a lot of money on a house for one person. I choose to have electricity so the lights would come on and because i can't live with out electricity, i picked gas and water cause for my stove and sink I need those two thing a lot, I choose a mobile phone incase there is an emergency, and I picked to have internet so I can pay $8 a month instead of $52 a month with cable. I choose to eat at home for the first year maybe (maybe longer) because I need to save as much money as I can. I chose a used auto because I need a car but I'm not going to get a brand new car (cause who knows I could total it the first day i get it) and pay $1300 instead of $530. I choose the designer packet on the clothes because I am not paint much on anything else and I do want to treat my self to something nice every once in a while, I also got the shoes packet because I need shoes to walk, and I got the accessories packet because its not that i need it, its kind of a want because again I want to treat myself everyone in a while. I chose to have health insurance one because it isn't very expensive, and because i really ever get hurt or going to the dentist but I need the insurance incase something did happen. On the personal art i did get the basic packet and i got the luxuries packet because i need the basics for one resin I need a tooth brush and tooth paste, i need shampoo, i need soap, and I need deodorant. I got the luxuries because I am obsessed with makeup and perfume, so I thought I would also treat myself to that as well. I choose the home bundle for $25 because it allows me to stay a home and buy music, rent movies, and play games (which I probably won't be doing). I really want a pet when I start college so I will be paying $100 a month for my dog ( it will be a little teacup puppy named Olaf). I choose to save 5% of income because it was cheaper than 7% and I don't just want to get 2%. I choose to get a bachelors degree because I need the for the three jobs I want to prusue and It is at a public school so it's cheaper and that is good. So in total I spend $37,856 a month but that's okay cause if I do all three jobs at the same time or just interior design I will have over 15,000 dollars left over every month.
