Today, we will talk about the kind of life you want to have when you are ready to move out on your own.  Think about it - will you stay single for a while, or get married and start a family?  If so, how many kids will you have?  Where will you live - in the city, by the ocean, in the mountains, or in a rural community like Demotte?  Will you take vacations - Disney World? another country? or just a staycation?

Add in hobbies, cars, night life, cell phones, internet, etc.. and you've got a lifestyle to maintain.  For your early work, complete the worksheet, Work and Your Lifestyle.
