::Nods in agreement::

Though after buying textbooks this semester I only have $20 in my bank account, so my employment status will probably change. :P

bein a paperboy pays damn well, the only drwabakc is that shitty hours. for me, its roughly 1230-445 mon-thurs, 1230-5 fri-sat and 12-7 on sun but for 2 grand a month, does any other job pay that much for around 35 hours of work?? granted its EVERY day and you ahve to go collect some of the money, its still pretty good.

ps
sorry for mispelin, im a little durnk in celebration of fixing me computer

pss

and who wouldnt wanna tell the ladies that "im apaperboy!!!" its an instant lady attroactor, i SWEAR ;)

Student, but still got to pay for my schooling. Retail management for that, sucks but the pay is OK ($30k/yr). I'm only 21.

I was a classic rock DJ, then a waiter, and then I joined the Navy :-P I've just been a student since I got out of the Navy, and that's treating me alright :-D $1500 a month to go to school fulltime is really quite sweet. The bad thing is that I live with my fiancee and she's pretty cautious, moneywise :cry: Won't lemme buy an iBook :cry:

no sh!t, really, you make 2 grand, (what equals 2000 dollar, what equals +/- 2000 euro) per month ?

i think my dad earns that amount of mony in a month 8O

ah yes, i'm a poor student who saved like a year to buy his new computer ( 700 $ ) , amd 2500xp, abit nf7-s , 8)
every week i get money to buy candy and stuff( while i'm already 17 ), it's like 20 $, so i can live with that.

right now, i'm building a little server ( old amd k6, 450 mhz, 600 mb sdram ) and try to earn some money by selling some good trusty gentoo linux webspace 8) to some friends of mine

I do now. :D That's cool though. God knows if that it was ran by Windows the box would be hacked and the 800 number welcoming message would probably be replaced. :lol:

Cambridge? Oooh, unlucky ;-)

Anyone can see that Oxford, that sweet city with her dreaming spires, is superior.

Except for in the boat race. And probably for maths degrees as well.

I'm at Oxford doing Engineering & Computer Science myself.
