Re: Ways of earning money...

I know people that sling part time (I'm in high school) just to school/party people and make good money for students. $6000 over 2 semesters isn't livable if you are paying rent and utilities, etc, but while still living out of mom and dad's wallet I suppose it works.

Re: Subtitling vs. dubbing

I like subtitling better because the original acting is kept intact. This has the advantage (hopefully) of their acting as well as preserving the 'foreignness' of the movie because you can still hear the original language. Dubbing ruins the acting, the language, and the impact of the film.
