Alright. I need to start paying for my electricity bill. Before my roommate paid it and did all that stuff for me. But now I'm going to be living in my own place, so I have to pay it :(
Anyways, how do I tell how many kilowatt hours I'm using? is there a way to determine it? Do I need to buy something to measure it if I wanna know how much I'm using?

do you want to measure individual components such as just your computer and monitor? or do you want to know how much everything is using, like your comp, lights, ac, tv, radio, etc. i dont know about the first, but you should be able to find out your total power consumption your electric meter will tell you that.
My bill tells me how much I've used.

I have no idea how the read a thing...when I was living in a house...we read the kilowatts off a meter in the back of the house!

If you live in an apartment, ask the super where your meter is. However, reading the meter can get confusing because unless you read it the same time the electric company guy reads it, your numbers will be different. It should be close though... :)
