Ok... Now I'm just mad, but also very motivated! My parents are just so naive and full of prejudices... I don't know if what I just wrote is exactly what I mean, because I'm not an native english speaker, but this is what I mean: They tell me that I can't spend all my time this winter in front of my PC, and that I have to go skiing or go climb a mountain or something. They tell me I'm a lazy bastard (they don't, but that's what they mean) and that I have poor health and that I'm in bad shape and stuff like that (Which I'm not, in my opinion. I bet I could run a marathon). Now I have one week off from school, and I think this is a good opportunity to do some blackhat marketing and make myself some cash... But of course they don't think so. I haven't gotten any big checks yet, but I know they are comming soon, and I will never give up! I'm gonna make one or several million(s) (a million in my country is only like $140k) this year, or next... Now I just want a big fat check from Clickbank with a lot of digits and stuff so I can just rub it in their faces and say like "Now I make more money than you do!" And just laugh because I make more money than they do with only six-seven months of internet marketing education. But if it happened they probably wouldn't believe it since school is so important, and make that much money is just impossible with only two years studying electrical and electronic subjects (I'm 17 atm), but I'll show them what's possible. Of course I think it's important to have good health and stuff like that. And I think skiing is fun if I'm doing it with friends... But I just want to prioritize my time. Does skiing make me rich? No! (Well... If I was a pro, but I'm not) They think I'm just chatting with people and searching the www for entertainment and bullsh*t and stuff like I'm some guy with low social intelligence and who has nothing better to do... I understand that they don't want me to spend all my time in front of my PC, but it's just the way they express themselves. "What are you going to do this week?" Me: "Gonna chill. Take it slow and relax until school starts again next week" (Of course I'm going to do a lot of things which they don't understand) "You can't just sit in front of your PC all the time. You gotta go skiing... You'll come with us, and we'll go together tomorrow" (I don't wanna do stuff like that with my parents, because their just so boring and old-fashioned...) And I hate it when they are trying to make plans for me and tell me how I'm going to spend my time. Now they're willing to buy my a pair of new twin tip skis tomorrow (they have always done that if I've needed new ones), just so I can get away from the computer. But what they don't understand is that I need to figure out which type I want before I buy something... Now I just want a full bag of money and I wanna be 18 years old, so I can move to some warm place and contact them whenever I want to so I don't have to listen to any sh*t that come from their mouths. And after that I'll just find something fun to do as a hobby, like become an actor or make music and stuff like that. I just wrote this because I just needed someone to understand, because my parents don't. I quess there's a lot of other people that goes through the same stuff, if anyone here is still living with their parents. This whole thing only makes me want to prove something to them, and that makes me kinda motivated. This is my future and I'm going to succeed! I'm sorry for wasting your time and I'm sorry that you read this... And I'll take any advices from people who have experienced this or something similar.
