im 14. i have 7 jobs.
i work in stew leonards

im a baseball certified refferee (gotta love $40 for 2 hours, and the highschool coaches yelling at you when you call the mercy rule becaue their team is down by over 142 runs)

i also am a semi-intern for a local graphics designer, which means i make graphics for them from jobs they get from other people, i work off commision and don't make half as much as the other real workers their but i get $200 a month easy from that.

i am also a basketball refferee

i have a snow plow business which makes over $700 in the winter which consists of me and my brother (who can drive a plow), plus two of his friends who drive plows. They make more then me since they do the plowing and i only collect money, get jobs, and make sure they dont ruin their lawns and not actually plow since i dont have a liscence

i babysitt that counts as a job :-p.

and finally im a amteur poker player, which i can rely on for a solid $500 a year.

----------
normally i spend it on upgrading my $700 airsoft gun or my $1,900, but now that i see i wnat to get into computer grpahics as a career in the future, and becoming more of a gamer, im spending more and more on my computer. why thanks to peoples on these forums suggestion i bought a nvidia 6800 gt graphics card, a 250 gb external harddrive, and a little 1 gb flash drive, and, i bought an extra 1 gb of ram which now brings me up to 1.5 gb's of ram.
Hehe, in 1 week i went from a crappy old computer to a pretty dam good one. Now alls i need is a pretty case.
