Paycheck to paycheck

1)A two bedroom apartment is 40,240 a year and rent is  1,006 for rent and divided in half me and my roommate would both pay 503$ each for rent.
2)-300$ a month for heat
   -30-50$ for electricity
   -280$ a year for air conditioning
   -20$ a month for gas
   -45$ a month for internet
and so on
3)It could be stressful living paycheck to paycheck EX: the stress of not knowing how if you can afford food or pay rent wreaks havoc on your body.

1)A career that interests me is being an NBA player. What I like about it is it's my favorite sport and I love to play it. It would be cool to get paid doing something you love and it takes care of bills and wouldn't have to worry about money problems, plus an average NBA player makes $5 million.

2)Duke university would be a great college to help me achieve my goal. Because 20 great NBA players came from that college and that would mean I'd have a chance of making it too.

3)The potential earning power of this career would be about earning five million a year or more according to how good I am.

1) It shows how Nike lets the sneaker heads advertise for them so they don't have to do it and all they have to do is sell and it makes it easier for people who can't afford them.
2)A secondary market is the sneaker heads selling shoes to people for different prices and retail market when retailers promote awareness.
3)If there was a stock market of things I would most likely sell sneakers.

1)Based on my article I choose last week I would choose creative nonfiction.
2)This article text structure would be cause and effect because it talks about how jordan is getting old and he can't do things like he used to do.

3)What interests me is when they talk about the self driving cars bc it would be cool to have a car drive by itself and I could just chill in the back seat on my phone.

1)Non-fiction is prose writing that is based on facts real events and real people. ex: non-fiction stories are meant to amuse the reader and inform them.
2)Because non-fiction is a better way to grab attention and your going to use non-fiction in the future in your life.
3)The purpose of the article is to tell you about Michael Jordan and some of the things he did. It says that MJ never thought of being old and says that aging and how Jordan is getting old and he starts to reflect on him being competitive and he's engaged. I decided to pick this article because Michael Jordan is my favorite basketball player and he played on my team.

1/9 blog


Frederick the great changed the perceived value of the potato by making it seem like the potato was worth something and that it was a royal food and only the royal family could eat it. Ataturk made it seem that only people that's not sex offenders and others can wear veil. Rorys idea about the train falls into perceived change because he thought of a better way to get people to ride the train or like it by having male and female models there. Because we have more control with a person's perspective than than we do with the reality because for example the environment you grow up in shapes who you are.
