mmm, well, the more money i make, the more "necessary" expenses i end up having. i work in a veterinary clinic in kalamazoo, and i don't know how much i make anymore. it comes out to about $1200/mo. rent is $410, but my gf and i split that. then bills, bills, bills.
for a short time i ran my own pet sitting business, which is a tricky way to make money, tax free, without really having a boss.
when i was 14 i wanted a job really badly but couldn't find anyone to hire me because i was too young, so i took a position volunteering at an aviary, and the owner soon learned i was such a hard worker that she would slip me a $20 or buy me dinner whenever she could afford it.
for a short time i had a credit card with which to spend money that i didn't have, but that was so not a good idea.
i sometimes found chores around the house and conned my mother into paying me to do them. or washing the cars, or whatever.
mm. it's time to go to subway.
