My hat comes off to electricians too. I have zapped myself a few times attempting electrical work. At one of my old jobs we used to call the electricians "the sparkies"!

Full time high school student. It's a tough job. I work over 50 hours a week (homework + school hours) and I don't get paid anything.

Except for, I would assume based on my high-school years, free room and board, meals, and other essentials. Not to mention you are already earning your living by training for your future. Continue on to college (where then maybe your "pay" statement will be closer to the truth :P ) and the light at the end of the tunnel will be nearer.

Tee hee. I thought the same... just wait if you decide to go to university then you get to actually pay for the privilege. I was trying to keep my student bitterness inside though, but now I have an exam in 10 hours, so I'm LETTIN' IT ALL OUT!!!!

College will be completely free for me, even books and boarding. I'm going to get a Bright Futures Scholarship, which is the awesome thing about living in Florida.

But, I don't even know what I want to do yet......

It's a type of scholarship funded by the Florida Lottery that is available to any Florida high school student who meets the requirements. I won't have to worry about it much. My GPA is up to 4.31 weighted so far and I've done over 100 hours of community service.

This is the one I'm going to get:

However, I can only use it for in-state schools, and I really wanted to apply to some top-tier out-of-state schools like Columbia, Cornell, and U of Penn. I'll probably end up going to a good Florida school though like UF, or Miami.
