Today I have a fun game to share. It’s called the Texas Reality Check and it is brought to you by the Texas Workforce Commission & the Texas Education Agency.
It was designed to show young people the value of money, essentially, and the importance of choosing a career that can meet all of your lifestyle needs. It provides students with a general understanding of a monthly living budget, and all of the expenses that they will have to consider when they live on their own.
I played the game and enjoyed seeing what jobs this system recommended for me, based on the lifestyle choices I selected.
Although it’s Texas-based (you will have to select a Texas city to settle down in), you can still get a general sense of living expenses in North America. There will be regional fluctuations, of course, but it’s still a fun game to explore no matter where you’re located.
Enjoy and Happy Friday!
