Im unemployed right now at 15, and im applying my *** off at many places, and my options right now are either skylines, or mcdonalds. I'll probly work at one of those. But the MMO secondlife seems appealing to me as a side hobby and cash source. As i like to make content for games (modder) and second life lets you do just that, and then sell it for cash too!

And while im at it, im quite artistic, and if i can learn photoshop, i'll make some apparel for selling on cafepress.

I ask my dad. I don't care what you guys say. I get good grades, I stay out of trouble and I am drug free. I think spending a couple thousand dollars for the only child is perfectly normal...

My parents paid for mine, but I will have to pay them back.

I build computer for people, fix them, sell *cough* CDs *cough*, and do random house work.

its perfectly normal for some people to get their computers from their parents.

for some of us our parents cant afford it(like mine) and so we work our asses off.

we get to the same place.
and selling weed is perfectly legit if you want to accept responsibility if need be.

sall good<3
