AHHH.... it's taking me over...!

Mountain biking is taking me over...

My mom said she'd no longer fund it, and I need to start paying for it..

Well I talked her into buying my pedals, (shimano m520's)


To afford this I have come to the hard decision to part with all my beloved painball stuff... I'm asking my friend who works on a field to sell them for me....

And I'm thinking of taking my ps2 and accessories to the pawn shop...
!!!!
Ahhhh


Anyone else have these problems?

But the lovely winter... has taking that away from me =)

Is it your age or apparent lack of understanding of English? I landscaped when I was in college. It's not that rough.

Here's a suggestion, an elderly person living on their own in your town and are having a tough time getting small tasks taken care of, ever think of trying to help them out?

Like Smashy said, I'm sure there are things in your community you could do. What about the community rec center?

don't know what you're talking about =)

I have a 96 in english, highest in class thank you.

In the GA Humidity and the 113 degree sun it tends to be un-enjoyable.

I beg to differ, the Mc Donalds here WILL Not hire you until your 16. You can apply at 15, but they WONT Hire. Ask any one around here. Ask them if you want.

Community rec center.... it... well lets say its not much of anything except a baseball field... tennis courts... and a grassy field.m They're not hiring right now =(


My next try will be the Base Golf course. Drive around golf carts all day, pick up balls, refill water, and wash the carts.

But this wasn't a post for whining that I don't have a job.
It was just... kinda pointless, but figured it could of sparked some conversation.

Pawn shop will rip you off, you might have better luck putting the PS2 on craigslist...

I sort of know how you feel, though...I work full time, but with so many other expenses, it's hard to justify spending more money on bike stuff...

General MB thread. Hire. Taken.

If you have a 96 in English, your teacher should be fired.

I excel in school. Not on a forums. I see this thread has already strayed away from its intended purpose.

I don't really know lol.

How does that whole craigslist thing work? I never heard of it until I came here.

I'd rather sale to local/in person.
