You can say that again. I work two part time jobs both fixing computers (my off campus job pays minimum wage) and I need both just to make sure I can get rent and food payed for. Everything else I have I worked hard for doing side jobs or not sleeping. Not to mention, I have school on top of it all...

I've applied for a few jobs but nobody is hiring. Stupid economy.

How is MSOE going for you?? You are a sophomore correct? Still a CS major?

Bleh, I don't like October. I just spent $60 on a present on my brother, and I spent another $60 on a present for my friend. Then I bought an external and Forza 3 limited edition totaling $160 for both items. I spent too much this month...

Not true to say that no one is hiring. Obviously due to the current economic climate, LESS people are hiring but there have been 2 threads within the last couple weeks with people getting jobs. I got a part time job yesterday, and i'll still be working web design (of which there is loads of work available) and computer repair to supplement my income. It's hard getting work, but it's still possible.

I recommend going and scouting out available jobs in retail, loads of shops are talking on extra people for the holiday season. Most of all, be polite, network with employers and never say never

You need an education. It's hard to get any decent jobs without a BS these days. Take some loans out and go to school.
