Thanks for your reply, two jobs is tough but worth it if you like it. I go to school with 13 units and working two jobs let alone one would kill me. I barely study as it is. Looks like I'll have to wait a while before investing heavily in my ride.

I go to school full time too...18 credits...it's all about finding a job that works around your schedule.

Kaplan asks me when I can teach and when I want to teach...besides, it's only 6 hours a week worth of teaching (and that's only if people sign up for class)

The Chem dept. is a between class job. So I pull in about 20 hours a week here.

So, I still get time to study and have fun. Look for a job at your school. There's tons. There's got to be a job forum that posts part time jobs to do simple tasks. Average pay is around $8.00/hr for university jobs. You might get lucky and hit the high end of the band.

Besides, I'd much rather get my hop up parts legitimately and pay for them instead of getting hot parts for cheap or jackin them...damn those kids!!! :mad:

Good luck G!

I go home on the weekends and work doing maintence for a mall, mostly painting all the walls over and over again, its kinda boring, but for $9 clear, its worth it, im just waiting to get out of school and get a graphic design job paying 60k a year starting :D

It's hard for me to hook up my car because I have to pay rent, bills, and my school loans. I get about only $50 a week to spend on whatever I want but it mostly goes for things like food and gas for me and my wife. I would get a second job but I wanna spend time with my wife but if I was still single I would be making enough money to hhok up my car because I would just room up with my brother or live with my parent's.

MARRIED LIFE hard to work on car and wife.

I'm a salesman at a furniture store, i love it because the amount of money I make is up to me, all commission. I'm also a college student, but almost all of my check goes into my car. Sales is the easiest job i have found to make the most money, without a degree of course.
