So I was thinking about my future

    First, I've almost decided that I want to be an electrical engineer, but I wanted to know this. First, as a former math major who is highly interested in signals processing, is that the right path for me? And then I got to thinking of how much money I'd need to make per year to support the way I want to live, and I figured I'd need probably around $50,000 to $60,000 per year, right off the bat. Can I get that much out of college with an EE degree?

    It's not about where I am now, it's about where I want to be.

    I'm thinking, house, car, food, electric bill, water bill, Comcast internet, top-of-the-line computer, it adds up.

    But I took a look and I should be fine, I think.

    Yah that's pretty basic, you're missing a good deal of expenditures (and don't forget taxes!)
