I have 3 separate oil leaks, Is this common?

So for the past few years i've had to add oil occasionally and its been mentioned by my local indy shop that i have minor oil leaks but nothing serious. Now i can SMELL and SEE smoke from the oil leak. When i start the car i can see the smoke and smell comes through A/C vents. i was freaking out till i read the forums and saw people had these leak but not all at once!! is this common?
-leaky valve cover- $500
-leaky oil filter housing- $400
-leaky oil pan- $900
*all includes labor but +tax

i'm scheduled to get the first 2 fixed because they say my oil pan was for sure the smallest leak to save me costs for now. this is of course after me just replacing $900 water pump and $500 for 3 broken/leaking hoses. the car is paid off but these expenses are preventing me from saving for next car. would like to hear from others. I have 120,000miles by the way
