This has always been very important to me. In fact, it's a liberty I always just took. Even when I worked at the law firm I showed up in jeans with enormous holes in them and band t-shirts. I'd occasionally get dirty looks or someone would try (very poorly) to make a joke at my expense, but no one told me to change my work attire. Fucking pussy liberal lawyers with kids named Aiden (probably.)

Now, I don't own a single article of clothing that isn't stained with black bike grease.

best was getting paid to play the music I hated in the '80s and finding I could pretend to act like I liked it well enough to get lots of cash, free drinks, and young women. kind of learned to like it actually. "Shoplifters of the World, Unite and Take Over..."

worst was washing dishes.

I was in a bar in PDX tonight called The Slammer, that I really like because it's small and makes me feel like I'm in a boat. The bartender was as hot as you, and I stayed polite, tipped reasonably, but not insane, and left after one drink. But then I didn't do so well with the babysitter recently...

I've saved $20,000 working part time in 4 1/2 years, living at home but paying half the bills, and at one point being sued for $600. So, yeah, it adds up, if you're smart with your money (and you don't buy a bunch of bullshit). And yeah I'd say, when minimum wage here is like $6.75, it's a decent amount... especially for what you're doing.

The wage cap is like $17, but they add onto it every year. Seriously, if I was making $17 to stock shelves, I think that'd be pretty badass.

To me, college.. I respect people who go, don't get me wrong.. but college is kinda pointless for a lot of people, unless it's something you're really interested in. Ultimately, unless you go to be a doctor or a lawyer, you're probably just going to end up getting a job you like a little bit more than working at Wal-Mart, making a dollar or two more starting out. Case in point, my exgirlfriend got a chemistry degree, got a job at a lab, and made WAY less than me, with no chance of every catching up to me, paywise, even though she had to have a degree to get that job... but she still enjoyed it.

Ultimately, I think anything you are patient with -- saving money, going to school, playing music, whatever -- will eventually pay off. As long as you work hard at, and long enough with, anything.. you'll eventually get something out of it, unless you're a complete moron. I know people with jobs making way more than me, who's mommy and daddies paid their way through everything in life (note that I've never had any help in my entire life, had to steal and sell shit to get anything I wanted, or find other creative ways to get money, and I had to buy my own clothes, my own car, etc... no help from hardly anyone, ever), who have ran up shittons of credit cards, who have NOTHING to show for their lives. Also note that I gave $2000 to my mom last year because an old credit card caught up to her. I told her not to pay me back... I mean, I have more money than I know what to do with, literally, because I reached a point a few years back where I realized that I have literally everything I want. A guitar, some movies, some cd's, a camera, and my laptop, everything else can fuck the fuck off, and I've sold/given away EVERYTHING I'VE EVER OWNED in the past couple years, for cheap, to everyone.

So, yeah, I'm unhappy in life, I'm working for absolutely nothing now, there's nothing I want, even though I could do anything I want, and I'm glad my parents never gave me shit because it's made me smarter and more frugal. But I'm still unhappy.

Oh, I'd also like to mention, everything I own is cheap as fuck.. $200 guitar, $24 digital video camera, $500 car (that somehow has lasted me 5 years).

I have always wanted to go on a big tour, Mr. Wang. I could probably rent a van. would hate to drive everywhere though. Maybe I could convince Kyle to drive.
