i wonder that about a lot of people who fix up their cars. fixing up cars is not a cheap ... so, what jobs do you have that make it possible for you to afford all these mods for your car?

im living off of student loans, financial aid, and tips as a waitress.

Well, according to a friend of mine who's a mechanic, most of the people in the L.A. area that have really nicely fixed up Hondas are usually rich kids who's parents pay for the stuff. I'M NOT SAYING ALL...ONLY THE GOING FROM MY MECHANIC'S PERSPECTIVE.

hey iamagirl, you said you were a network admin? Thats what im in college for right now, how do you like it?
well for me, its a fun job. I dont get pay that much because this is just a small company, but i gets to hang out with my friends so its cool. The work is not that bad at all, we have a small 15 pc network so its pretty easy to manage. Most of the time, im just helping the people in there with their paper work:)

imo networking is alot more fun than programing. Ive taken a visual basic class and its BORING:) i wouldnt want to do that for a career
