Sample budget:

24k rent and utilities
4k car payment
1k car insurance and maintenance
3k gas
4k groceries
3k outing, hobbies, decor, emergency fund
3k 401k
possibly medicaid tax
possibly student loans
omitting insurance until your 26 assuming your parents work

Total: 42k
--> 50k pre tax
And Those numbers are VERY tight.

Roommates could save 12k off that. I'd consider going somewhere with better pay and/or where you can avoid a car.
