Default bottom line

I guess the big idea I have is that I don't plan on using it unless a car breaks down.( not the Bonnie the other one). Or ther is an emergency and I need to be reached. The was I figure it Ill have no monthy charge at all. Zip Zero Nada. Im a student you see. I don't work, my wife works part time, so our budget is limited. Big time. Only because we want it that way for awhile. So tightness is the key. Top Ramen Dude, ya kow what I mean. So I go to school alot. Also Im at the hospital one day for twelve hours. Thats my thinkin.
Hears how the plan works. The day I use the phone Im charged 1 buck. That day all the calls I make are .10 cents a min. If I don't use the phone for two weeks, no charge. But hey, If I use the phone for an hour that day its, 6 bucks. Not to bad. Ireally don't want to use my phone, I need to be studying. Please if you think Im blind or stupid tell me. I want to be wise an all.

By the way. Does anyone have any idea how hard Nursing school is. OMG. The kicker is this. The stuff is reasonable to understand. The people they have teaching are strange.They have such a lack of teachers because you can make alot more money being a nurse than a teacher. Absolutly a fact. Not braggin here. When I get out. ( Lord help me get throught) I will make twice as much or more than my professor who has a masters degree. Yikes. The shortage you hear about in nursing, is so true. Here in Texas the average number of patients a nurse has is 7. Imagine this, you have 7 patients who have to have 10 or more meds on the hour plus other types of care. Wow.
If your thinking of a career change look into nursing.

That go plan or whatever might not be bad to start out with, but I know once you have a phone you'll get used to having it so you'll start using it more and needing more minutes, so eventually you would probably want to switch to a regular plan. I said I would never need a cell phone. My mom got me one for Christmas in '03 and I thought it was dumb. At first I used like 20 minutes a month at most, but now I'm actually starting to use it a lot more. I have a Nextel and I get 300 anytime minutes, free nights and weekends, and 100 direct connect minutes, the regular price for my plan is $30/mo., my mom gets a discount through work so its a little cheaper (like $25), but I don't think thats too bad. I use just about all my two way minutes every month and I use like half my anytime minutes, and usually about 100 night and weekend minutes and I seriously thought I'd never even use a cell phone. So, you might want to look into a plan...just my opinion though.
