    Well i guess that i am sort of using this to vent, so sorry. but anyways, i think i'm going to be in the lawncare business for the long haul. I really enjoy cutting grass, and making bad yards look great, and i love being outdoors and you make good money doing it. today was terrible, computer is broken, so i can barely use lawnsite, its taking 5 minutes to load a page, and my screen keeps flashing random errors at me, and my computer is beeping at me, someone stole my back pack at school so i didnt get my homework turned in, was going to get my mom a dog for her b-day and the one she wanted was sold, and my sister and I got into a big argument, so i left the house and went and mowed until dark, and the mowing really put me in a much better mood. I now feel like im not even in the mowing for the money anymore, i feel like i do it so that i dont feel lazy, and its something i enjoy doing.
    Sorry about the random venting post.

    Sounds like you're doing something you love, or at least like.
    That'll get you through most things, and letting off the steam will get you the rest of the way.
    Like SAL says, you're still on the honeymoon, best advice I can give you is to enjoy the experience of mowing before it becomes a business. Best of luck!!

    How old are you SouthernCutter if you don't mind me asking?

    I wish I had those type problems.

    You appear to be very young and it's good that you have a good work ethic already. You are serious, right?

    I wish EVERYBODY would learn that something earned is WAY better than something mooched

    Good deal. Keep up the good work and get a good education to fall back on.
