(thanksgiving 2009- L to R, my sister, my grandma and me)In my personal health class last night, we were talking about the differences in health insurance plans; such as a HMO and PPO, and oh-my-goodness, I have no idea how I'm going to choose when the time comes I finally get a big-girl job. I texted my mom about which plan we have. She reassured me that she would help me choose a plan that would be right for me when the time comes.
So, because I have been thinking about how close I am to student teaching and graduation (it's about time), I've been thinking a lot about my future classroom and what type of teacher I'll be. This quarter, I've been an after school math tutor for a group of 2nd graders, in an inner-city school. I loved every minute of it! Every time I go into their classroom, I can't help but look around and see everything that I would do with the classroom, if that was my space. Ahhh, I can't wait.
All this future talk has got me (of course) thinking about the future in general. I got my roommate obsessed with House Hunters as well. We were talking about the pros and cons of moving to a different state or city. This is the list we came up with:
*Moving away from friends and family
*Not knowing anyone when you move
*Not know the area or schools
*Cost of living might be to expensive
*Cheaper cost of living
*More house for your buck (in certain areas)
*You can start over (if you wanted too)
*New or better paying jobs
*More things to do
I'm sure the lists can go on. I'm still not sure if I would ever move out of the Chicago-land area, but I'm definitely not 100% against it.
I was looking on yahoo.com real estate website and I came across this link:
http://realestate.yahoo.com/promo/homes-for-under-100k.html. Homes across the US, for under $100,000.
It amazes me how much more house you get in different areas. Some of these houses are gorgeous. This house is in Detroit, MI; with 3,800 sq. ft. for $89,000. (ABOVE)
This house is in Cleveland, OH; at $89,900 with 1,170 sq. ft. This house is such a cute little bungalow.
Ok, I should probably go study now for my finals. I'll post another blog later about other things I say dream about! :)
