Follow the personal finance subreddit and start listening to personal finance podcasts. Live below your means even when you get a job/raises. Create a budget and track expenses. Set financial goals (get a job, invest in 401k, save for a car, reduce debt, etc.). Good luck, you got this and you’re starting young!

Check out the Bogleheads forum. Some people ask for financial advice given their specific, nuanced circumstances. You might even be able to find a thread where someone who used to be in your shoes asked the very questions that you are asking now.

How to Money is a podcast I have enjoyed listening to on personal finance topics.

Also, gain an understanding of compounding interest.

I'll be moving to Dallas for work this summer. I've been looking into housing options within walking distance from my job in downtown (wanna minimize driving as much as possible). Most of the places I've seen within my budget seem to have really mixed reviews. I don't need anything big or fancy--just needs to be safe and clean. Any insight on these places (or any other recs) would be great:
555 Ross
Moda
The Crosby
