    Or you could become an ebay seller, if you have spare junk that isn't that significant to you. Meanwhile volunteer at a job that would furnish a CV pretty nicely. It worked for me, just had to have 5 months' patience.

    I would make some actual suggestions, but it's kind of hard without already knowing what somebody is into, since there really is a lot of variety in classic rock, and there aren't many groups that everybody will like (besides the Beatles, obviously).
    As long as I like how it sounds, I don't really care how niche it is. Suggest away.

    As far as cards to money goes: if you want to keep playing, play Sealed. If you can sell cards on your own, look for any shops that still have the Commander decks for $30, especially if they still have the white/black/green deck (Counterpunch) -- Scavenging Ooze is worth about $32 right now. You'll have to change methods eventually and it's only a small return, but hey, it's something, and the other rares are worth a little bit. Well, some of them are; the rest could be bulk-sold.
    What is a va ?

    I am probably going to focus sealed product if anything. The singles market is a little too risky, but I can make 10-15 dollars a box, selling boosters at a discount. My issue is getting customers and whether I should try to oragnize drafts/sealed tournaments to push product. It's not a great way of a making cash, but it beats dumpster diving. (though that does sound like fun)

    There aren't a lot of volunteer jobs available that I know of, just internships. (which I shouldn't start applying to in fall, so I can get school credit for them) What is a CV ? (damn acronyms)

    Make sense. The singles market is kind of a pain in the ***. It's hard to sell things to other players, and selling to shops will only get you so far. I sold a Windswept Heath to a shop for $13 when it was only a $25 card. Now that it's worth $30, I'm even more of a *******.

    e: Also if you can get boxes for less than $120 and are a judge, host small (8-player) draft events. Offer the remains of the box as prize support and charge $15 for admission.

    Oh, apologies, that's a Britishism/Latinism. "Curriculum Vitae", or alternatively, "Resume".

    How about organised events? I don't know about there, but here we have several week-long events (festivals, sports tournaments, country shows, etc) that are always hiring staff online. They don't normally require skills (the jobs involve stewarding and such), although bar/catering experience can come in handy. You'd need to be able to travel there, but after that the money's normally worth it, and accommodation/meals ought to be provided.

    That was one of my ideas. I can easily get boxes for $90 so that is 30 dollars of profit before I deduct for shipping.

    I may want to check into that, I have some anime con volunteer experience, so I have have some experience in customer service.

    Nice. I should get in on that.

    I should have gotten in on that when Worldwake was the current set, actually.

    oops

    I wonder if New Phyrexia boxes will still be available. (Probably not!)

    It is, but you probably can't get it cheap enough. If you want boxes cheap, your best bet is to get the newest sets.

    Magic discussion:

    I have always, and still do, like Yu-Gi-Oh! better. Not because it has a TV show (that sucks) but because I'm decent at playing for free online. Plus having cards that are worth a lot of money, and sentitmental as well.

    My cousins got me into playing Magic when I was younger, but I could never convince my parents to buy me the cards. They got me Pokemon ones instead.

    But anyways, I went to the mall with some friends today and had a lot more fun than I was expecting. I got a few things I'd been needing, and nearly bought a knock-off Yoshi Pillow Pet, but the lady running the Kiosk was too busy texting to realize that I was waving dosh in her face.

    My sister also dragged me into Hot Topic and they had replicas of Goku's shirt...but I noticed that they had to write "THIS IS FROM THE SHOW DRAGON BALL Z" on the plastic case thing it was in. Apparently people didn't know what it was from.

    After dinner we went over to the book store across from the mall and I got an awesome haul. I almost bought those three CDs at FYE for nearly twice the prices when I was in the mall, so I'm glad I found them so cheap. I also got an iPod dock/speaker system for $10, and my sister found some CDs by some Japanese lady (BoA or something) and was freaking out about it. I was quite satisfied with my purchases, mostly because I was able to replace my dad's missing Dark Side of the Moon for pretty cheap. I also got a few useful text books for cheap, so it was all good.

    There's a little shop that sells overpriced anime tat in the closest indoor mall to wear I live (which is in Aurora, a.k.a. a 40-minute drive), and I usually have this problem. I've had one guy ask me if he could help me find something. He couldn't, though. I go in there pretty often. The clerks are never connected to reality. I've managed to pick up some $5 decks of playing cards, because I love those things for some reason. And the jokers make for interesting tokens in CCGs.

    My sister also dragged me into Hot Topic and they had replicas of Goku's shirt...but I noticed that they had to write "THIS IS FROM THE SHOW DRAGON BALL Z" on the plastic case thing it was in. Apparently people didn't know what it was from.
    That's Hot Topic and its customer base for ya.

    that's pretty much the most important thing you got

    Well, Dark Side is great, too, but since it's so ubiquitous, it bores me sometimes.
