    Default How does one go about

    How does one go about making money? I was looking up anime conventions for the summer after a guy at the bookstore told me about one in Richmond, and I found AnimeNEXT (the one y'all always meet at?). Now, I've learned from Wikipedia that for the past two years Vic Mignogna (<3<3<3) was there. I dunno if he'll be there this year but dang it I have to try and get there just in case. Whichever convention, I still need to get $$$ to pay for it (preferably in time to preregister). What does one that isn't old enough to get a job do for money?

    eh, it usually ranges from $5-$10. If I get lucky sometimes it's maybe $13 or $14. Try going for rich people. They tend to pay out more from my experience.

    I sometimes babysit this one family with three kids - a developmentally delayed 6 year old, a 9 year old and a 11 year old. The 11 year old is always really helpful and is better at calming her youngest brother down than I am, so the job is really easy I get paid about 10 to 15 a hour.

    Last time I babysat I went from 12 PM to 1 AM. The boys were 5 so they went to bed at 10 AM. It was a good thing they had tivo though. I just sat and watched 15 english episodes of Naruto.

    It was way better than watching I Love Lucy.

    Sounds like babysitting will be my course of action. I can put a flyer up at church so people know about me and now I have a general price range to go off of. Thanks, guys! With luck I'll be making costumes by May.

    Unfortunately it seems I have a shrinking chance of going to AnimeNEXT 07 seeing as my mom would have to take me (Jersey is a long drive for three days' stay). So, the money I get will be taking me to the Richmond convention center. Or Otakon depending on RG's mom.

    If you're 15, then it's not particularly hard just to get a job. I get over 300 a week just to make coffee. How easy is THAT.

    btw if you're american and don't use pounds or that shit fuck you thanks
