I joined for what I imagine is the same reason everyone else did. To make money. I first stumbled on this site back in 2012-2013, so I guess you could call it a reintroduction even though I never had the guts to dive headfirst into any work. I'm back now because my parents are having to use their savings to pay for some stuff, and are too stubborn to let me get a job because apparently school is my "job", even though I spend half my time on reddit/twitch. Over the 3 1/2 years I have left in highschool, I'll hopefully dedicate enough time into this to not have to worry about money, or decide which college to go to based on which costs the least. As a kid I always considered myself the smartest person in the room, and that combined with somewhat crippling social anxiety led to me spending enough time on the internet to know how to Google things. On a slightly different note, how does paypal income work for someone under 18 (at what point would I have to look into taxes?). Any comments or suggestions welcome . Sorry if any of this is in the wrong place, just trying to put everything on my mind into one post.
