I'm still an imbecilic student who leeches off his forebearers; occassionally going out of my way to get something done in exchange for a bit of extra money.

About 80% of my allowance gets shunted into savings. Every week or so I either don't bother being stingy or I allocate a little bit of my savings for playtime.

Back when I was still tuning two cars simultaneously in ID5, I allocate up to 2,000 pesos (roughly 1/5 of my two-week pay cut-off) for playing ID. Nowadays, regardless of whatever happens to me in ID6AA, I'll only spend up too 500 pesos max. per weekend.

Since I'll be turning 25 exactly two months from now, I need to seriously consider cutting down on ID expenses in order to focus on more important matters. After sitting near the top in ID5, I'm at the bottom of the food chain in the local ID6AA scene anyway, so it would be logical for me not to spend as much if I only know I'll suck with the game.

Ah, the good old days when allowance was the only way to spend money.

Reminds me of the IDv3 days here when games cost as low as 5 pesos; I could spend only 50 pesos (a little more than US$1) one day, rack in up to 10 games, and feel satisfied.

One of the things I promised to myself when I started working about four years ago was that I would not rely on my parents anymore as far as personal budget/expenses are concerned. If they give me extra, so much the better. If they don't, it's OK, I ain't mad or anything along those lines.

====================

@ Nai: If you call yourself "imbeclic", then I'm "pathetic" LOL.

I'm probably spending 600k-1mil Dong (approx. 30-50 USD) per week on ID5. I'm usually spend $5 each time but now seems like I'm gettin' more addicted to the game trying to beat all the in-store TA records and end up spending $10 each time. I drop by at the mall 3-4 times/week.

Guess I must stop and if I quit playing just for 1 month I could buy myself a nice watch which I'm starting to show interest in recently.

Btw, I'm an inbound tour guide in Vietnam.

During school months I also live off welfare / allowance whistling.gif but right now that it's summer I'm working as a research assistant for one of my professors. Sounds prestigious but it's really walking around all day giving out surveys to seafarer officers pinch2.gif

Same with me, actually. smile.gif

I'm already working in the IT industry for 5 years now. I try not too spend too much on ID, and besides, nowadays I don't have as much free time as I used to have.

The game around my place cost about US$ 0.50 per play. I usually just spend about US$ 6 per game session. Even then, often I don't spend all the money in one session and safe some for later.

Nice, only 50 cents. The one I play at is a dollar per play. Really drains the wallet after a session.

Would cost me too much. I'm four stamps away from being Gold. Once they took ID out of the time card, I stopped paying for it and stopped getting stamps.

From my own salary of course. Usually around US$3 a session, up to US$5 on weekends. It really saps on my wallet though, since I work at a mall (paid just around typical wages for an bachelor's degree holder) and ID6AA is a mere 4 floors up. The price's around .45 US$ a play, a rather generous rate for a few-month-old new game like ID6AA (same price for MT3DX+).
