Have you ever thought about moving to the mainland instead of staying in Hawaii just to go to school? May be a lot cheaper, and probably less distractions. Then you can go back after you finish up. Gather up a bunch of your friends and make the move.

Portland has lots of Hawaii people, also a lot of viets.

ah... Tobi speaks the truth of an opportunity that could be right for you. We don't know. You're the one that will ultimately decide. Tuition is usually a lot cheaper on the mainland.

For some states, you just need to be there for six months before you 'qualify' for 'resident' tuition (otherwise it's usually a year), then the discount is even more so apparent.

Another state that's popular with Hawaii folk is Washington state for continuing education. Right next door to Oregon.

**
I was going to say that your budget is a little on the low side, although still reasonable.
$700 a month + deposit (you can count on needing to have double your rent as the first month's + deposit payment. They will usually want this up front too. Some are even charging an 'application' fee to cover 'credit check'/administrative fees.

$800+ is more reasonable for rent unless you're willing to rent out a 'room' in someone's house and share the common areas (kitchen/bath/living room). If you're going to rent a place with 'a bunch of friends' make sure that they don't 'party all the time' which will be detrimental to your long range goals (such as getting good grades), you'll need some 'alone' time to do your homework/ school thing.

Another thing is to make sure that they will hold up their end of the deal/ arrangement. If your name is on one of the bills, such as the electric. Guess who gets stuck paying it if they don't come through with their share?

$ 5k is about right. That's just barely enough...it'll go so fast your eyes will roll in shock.

$700 is cheap though...r u sharing a place with some people?

With that truck and living expenses your going to spending close to $ 1800/month. That is roughly 30k/yr or $ 15/hr minimum to break even.

Keep the truck. What good is a toyota prius or honda civic if he really wants to make money fast. Trucks give you an oppurtunity to make money with some type of moving,painting,construction,lawn,etc,etc business if you cant find a job you might end up making alot of $$$$$ because of your truck. Trucks are good you can almost consider it a tool to make money.

Keep the truck, it'll be easier to haul stuff around when he moves and picks up big items here rather than have to rent a truck or ask someone to borrow a truck. I'm sure it's not that bad on gas.

The numbers you put are okay but you have to over budget sometimes to allow for that cushion in the event of some unexpected expenses. Have you already located or began your search for a place, a job, etc?

It's good that you're planning your move and crunching the numbers before you head over here and get shell-shocked. You're a tough bird, I'm sure you'll be okay.

I think you needs about 7K for the just in case you don't get a job right away. If you get time, try scope the job scene over there right now online or something.

Find something close to school and work in case you end up using the foot mobile for transportation or learn to catch Fasi's limo service.

Learn how to surf(if you dont already). Be a surf instructor, score chicks and make money while having fun. Be a hotel pool lifeguard. Tour escort. etc. All have chicks and you can hookup and even find some rich hot chick.

Buy a futon and you won't have to deal with a bulky bed, etc and save money at the same time. Futons are to be folded when not in use so that frees up a lot of space in (I'm assuming) a small living area.

Also, take your food budget and increase it by 50%. Unless you plan to live off of the dollar menu, food expenses add up REALLY fast.

I don't gotta worry about my friends not coughing up $$--they are already there ( been there for a year) and supposedly no problems so far (except for their cousin who they kicked out cuz she stole $$ from them)

My frontier is 4 banger.. I wish I could get a car but im already in the payments.. too much hassle to trade in and refinance schit.

My plan for jobs is applying online for jobs about 1 month ahead of time and setting my "available to work date" a few days after I move in.. hopefully that works out--apparently my friend says its easier to find jobs there than on Maui.

My truck payments is 350$ + 80$ for cell phone .. then ~400 for rent/utilities and food and stuff.. yeah, costs alot! I can't wait though.

Place we moving in is a big house.. 5 guys.. 2 guys per bed room and the last guy gets the smallest room for himself.. I dont care.. i dont need THAT much privacy.. and everyone im moving in with I knew from small kid time and we all respect each other..real mellow people.. so when I bring someone over, they know what to do.

We party alot.. but we also respect bookwork.. alot of people out of our friends wanted 2 move in but they got reejected because they know their lifestyles and they would party more than work/school and would suffer.. and they super happy im coming cuz they know how i am.. lol.. im pretty responsible with the bills and my spending.

Thanks though everybody for the post.. Now that I add food $$ and stuff I going try save 5-7k

and I gotta do this in 4 months so whew! No spending and going out for me!

I also trying to save alot because my mom wants to help me but she has enough shit to worry about.. and I rather her just relax and have 1 less person to feed and take care of ..

Mainland does have better school.. but for what I wanna take (Music Engineering)--its very expensive in the mainland (20-30k/year) versus 2k/year in O'ahu.. I'm still debating between Adm. of Justice or Music Engineering.. I just afraid of failing and wasting my $$

no worries. Gotta try out stuff if you're not sure. I was always sure I was going Eng. so it was all good. If you get into something you dont like...youre fuxd the rest of your life, vs. just paying for one/two more years...

good luck man

you never really know someone until you live with them. Dont be surprised if you uncover any "habits" or skeletons that become uncovered while youre living together.

Exactly.

Which is why you should also have a 'bail' plan if living in that household is NOT what you expected (too crazy, too much party, etc.) And were I in your situation, I would NOT make the tenant lease in my name alone... I'd see if I could leave it off, if possible. Be financially responsible, but in case it all hits the fan, you could ditch and try to survive without being responsible to not break the renter's agreement.

Sounds pussy, but it could save you from a year of headache in the future, JUST IN CASE. Because like Boto said, you never really know people until you live with them for an extended period of time.


And 'Music Engineering'? I only see the MELE program at HCC. Is that what you going to enroll in? I only see "Audio Engineering", as well as "Music Creativity" and some other stuff. 12 credits. Should be duck soup.

I already know all the things I'm going to have to deal with when I live with people.. Of course going get times I get irraz with my friends.. but it's better with them then strangers.. I already built a comfort level with them..

Audio Engineering/Music Engineering.. same thing.. It's weird because I see the website they offer but I can't find it on the class availability.. weird..

Don't know.. planning on going KCC since it's closer for the time being and finishing off the major @ HCC.. bleh

I got a job now.. so 4 months of savings I should be able to save 3k after all my bills.. ahhhhh

And party too much? Haha.. We party ALOT.. but when it's school-time we know our limits.. that's why I thought alot before moving.. and that's why they chose me out of 20 people who wanted 2 move in with them.. I can't wait though.. our own place =D

It isn't 12 credits.. it's this http://honolulu.hawaii.edu/mele/focus_engineering.html

THAT looks more like it!

I thought it would be a full-on AS program and not just a CC. Lots of LBART stuff as cores. Very nice.

That's what killed me. Took me four semesters just to get past MATH 130 (or 135 as they call it now).

I always tried my best to avoid alg. 2+ because math=gives me headache lmao.. equations n stuff.. arithmatics(sp?)

I kinda gonna have hard time.. since I'm going school right now @ MCC for 1 semester.. and if i go HCC.. would take another 2 years.. so..it seems like a waste of $$ if i go this semester..

I don't know.. lmao.. I really wanna do this but I also wanna try go be something that's more possible (security-wise).. how hard is it to be a teacher? (acceptence-wise).. I really always thought about teaching
