Ohoho I remember. My history teacher from 7th grade was a huuuuuuge Cal State guy. He would cheer for the Cubs every time they were gonna play a game.

Oh and...if they have people graduating (without the curve), I'll say it's a good college. But that's just because I'm 15 and I don't know squat about colleges other than "Imma be a game guy someday!!!!! loolz also Game Designing is a tough job"

The minimum wage here is $9.75/hr or something like that. Where I work, it's far higher at $14.25.

In my previous jobs, my lowest wage was like, £7.20, which is really, blooming good for retail. Haha.

However, I am on a salary now so, I can't be bothered working out how much I am on hourly.

My mom says she gets about $105/hr from what she gets paid. She works in semiconductor engineering (i dunno either) so it makes sense though.

Thing is though, we all live in such different economies and different jobs, us comparing income is strange! XD

I love canadian coins.

Just. I paid for a chili dog and a drink, and I got $8 in just...change.

Also the two-dollar coins! So much pretty.

And the dimes are cool...the dots on the rim of the coin...

Duh, I know. That's why I don't have a job. Because all the jobs are for 16 year olds.

You'll wish you were too young to work though when you get to an age where it's kind of unacceptable not to have something to do over the summer and you have no choice but to work...XD;

DON'T WISH AWAY YOUR YOUTH.
I miss being able to not have any responsibilities, do as I please and just live a carefree life.

Stupid growing up and responsibilities! XD

I think ideally we would be around 16-17 - old enough to work a job and get money, but young enough to not be expected to handle bills or rent or any of that hahaha.

Had my first job when I was around age 13 or so, needed it at the time if I wanted to get a Gamecube with Pokemon Colosseum and Metroid Prime that I craved so desperately at the time.

GC. <3

My first job was when I was 15. My sister worked at the same retail store with a part time job and got me a job too, since she was leaving so, it worked out! :3

My parents wanted me to get a job because it would be good for me and such... I just think they wanted to stop giving me pocket money! XD

Web Designers are paid surprisingly well, from what I have seen. However, does depend on the languages you know, where some people think being a Web Designer is just HTML, CSS and so on, they might be looking for Flash and others.

Either way, it is the easier programming languages and you can get easy jobs on the side.

I agree with that. It's great to have a job at that time.. but not the responsibilities of a "real adult" haha!

"Real adult." Lol.

I'm bored so I made up a cheating scenario.

Two girls are playing Monopoly.

Sasha: "Lets play Monopoly!"
Hailey: "Okay."
Sasha: "I'll dish out the money."
Sasha: *Gives herself all the money and the bank and gives Hailey none.*
Sasha: "I win! <3"
Hailey: "Come on! That's not fair you cheated by giving yourself all the money in the bank."
Sasha: "Whoever said I play fair?"
Haily: "Grrr---than I'm not playing!" *Stomps off.*

Nah this was a lot easier than most web designer jobs and only paid minimum wage, hahahah. They wouldn't let me into the actual source code of the pages to change things either >:/ The two web designer jobs I have under my belt now should be helpful when I go to look for a programming career though.

They are indeed The required languages/skills to make a decent living as a web developer are, PHP, Javascript, HTML & CSS a bonus would be flash/actionscript. You also need to be a average designer
