yeah, i hate that

I think since my mom saw this thing on 20/20 about that professional gamer "Fatal1ty" she began to think all games where like unreal tornament

Now any game that has blood and or cussing is absoulty not allowed

Little does she know that i just play it when shes not home

back when i lived at home i detasseled (great money but you work in a cornfield for 10 hours a day doing slave labor)

anyways my parents made me save 2/3 of the money i made when i lived at home. turns out having around 7000 to pay for college helps out a lot.

anyways that does suck that you can't upgrade w/ your own money but just wait for christmas or your birthday and ask them to pay for 1/2 of the upgrade or something (i was able to convince my parents to pay for 1/2 of my laptop as a graduation gift.)

just some ideas. Or you could ask them if there are any chores you could do around to help out so they'd let you buy it. just tell her you'll help clean or something for 30 min. a day or something instead of playing games and they'll probably go for it. my mom used to ground me for playing too much video games and that worked for me. if i set aside 1 hour for homework and cleaning a day she didn't care.

hope that helps your situtation. and if you live anywhere near cornfields you should check out detasseling (i make around 2500-3000 each year but it's only a month long job. It's really tough work though.)

yep same here. when i lived at home my parents controlled my money and i had to save almost all of it. i hated them for it then but now that im in 3rd year college and still have money without loans i love em . turns out they did know what they were talking about hehe. i eventually made a deal with them that i could buy whatever i wanted with the money i didnt have to save at the end of every month. just try to talk to them about somekind of deal. maybe they're willing. or maybe not...
