Thats pretty good considering most people only get like 20-30 a medium sized yard (incuding weed eating, blowing etc). Although I doubt it takes much more than an hour to do one medium sized yard so I guess it's about right.

I also sell Azzaro fragrances/colognes (Onyx, Chrome) and Everlast fragrances/colognes at various Foley's, Dillard's, and other department store. Good money, sorta a contract type job (when they have money and hours for you then you work- go in, spray cards and hand them out). Too bad I'm the guy that everyone hates when they walk in a mall because so many of the people who do my job go up to people and spray them with the stuff. I myself simply ask if they would like to smell a card. Fun stuff on busy days.

So, some day I can fit in with these fellas making the real money. Been with Wal-Mart for 5 years, since I was 16, and I make a whopping $8.15 an hour; what a bunch of crap.

Going to major in computer science (which in this instance deals with programming languages, software design and engineering, and systems programming). I pretty much know enough to get A+ cert and possible MCSE without too much trouble. I could do computer repair, and I can build them.

When its all said and done I want to be to work in just about any area that deals with:

Computer repair
Software design and enginerring
Fluent in several programming languages
Network administration

In college im going to minor in Electrical Engineering Technology which deals with the design, construction and operation of systems involving:

Computers
Power Generation and Trasmission
Communications
Analog and Digital Electronics
Automaitc control and robotics
Singal Processing

Im looking at like 18 credits for the minor and god knows how many for the major. If I bust ass I might be done with college in 4 years time.

For the present I work in the amusement industry. I work for a company that leases pool tables, pinball machines, arcade games and pretty much anything else coin operated to reasturants, bars, club houses and all other kinds of locations. My job specifically deals with cleaning and moving these pool tables and machines and I kind of get stuck running the computer as well... things like keeping data records and managing auctions on ebay.

Speaking of which, I ran out of a truck once with a 150lbs Fore1/4 of beef on my shoulder. I missed the ramp, and I feel 4' and bounced 6' of the ground. HARDCORE.
