Well I am quite sure that you could get back on track with your studies and your career as an engineer once you have completeed your studies you would earn a lot more money than on mylot but I think that it is important that you can earn a bit of money to help to to buy your books and other things that you need while you are studying. so hopefully you will get yourself together and go back and study to achieve your dreams

mylot is neither a reliable source of income. it can go down anytime and be lost nowhere else to be found. there is no degree of permanence here. it is best for you to get back on track to your studies, do mylot on the side. once you get to be an engineer, you will earn a lot more each month and you can achieve some degree of stability therein.

I think you can make time for it if you make yourself stop and say I need to go study or set yourself a list of time. Like time to be on mylot and time to study.

my advice to you is pursue your dream. Continue your study, it is easy to earn money when you have a degree and you can have regular job. Im not against mylot, but it is hard to just rely on Mylot when it comes to your finances, although you are in your convenient time and you just join discussion and you can earn, what i say is, you need experience, and you can have a degree. Many teenagers or highschool student they don't have a chance to go to school and enroll the degree that they want, while you, you have the oppurtunity. Im saying you must choose to finish you degree and that is important.

It's not bad to dream and you had a good dream but now as you said, you're always thinking of mylot and how to make money easily. It seems that you're just excited because you are still quite new here. That's normal. But see to it that you give the necessary attention to your studies. Mylot is just somewhere you may interact with people earning a small amount - not much. Don't neglect your studies and when you finish engineering, you'll be able to earn more and I wish you success. Give priority to finishing your engineering course because that's a good profession. When you're already an engineer, you can do better in any aspect including earning a lot from the internet.

Prime Importance for your carrier. My lot is just to have fun by sharing ideas. It cannot be your bread winner at all, Please go back to your studies. Later you can have your own engineering site and earn a lot.

You need to get back to your studies. Mylot will not provide you with enough money to make a living. Stay on track. Stay with your studies. Only do mylot in your spare time. Studies must come first.

I can't help it. I am a father of a daughter and a son. They are both adults now and I would tell them the same thing I have told you.

It took me awhile to get past the crazies of myLot. I now post when I can spare the time, and take care of other things first. In real life, as an engineer, for instance, you will need to discipline yourself, but at first myLot does seem like an intoxication. You will not get rich here, but it is fun to have discussions and get paid. Your studies are your future, and how you will support yourself.

I guess you dont have to give up anything... all you have to do is balance your time. Think abou this... the benefit that you will get from your studies is far more stable and lifetime than the benefit that you will get from easy money... one time its good then not... So I guess refocus yourself... enjoy mylot while not loosing focus on your studies. That would benefit you more.

you can never earn a good amount of monthly income from mylot. you can treat it only as a sideline. you can treat your income from my lot as an augmentation to the amount that your parents give you for allowances. my advise for you will be to be taking your studies seriously. you can still spend an hour or two for mylot each day if you will pursue your studies. just imagine, if you devote all of your time in mylot, the most that you can earn will be $100 monthly, well where will that get you?

Shrewd, I think you are in your studies, If so you can really go out in at gears when you need in your studies. My advice is you devote your attention 60% for studies & rest for your forum participations and etc.

i think you are off the track my dear. concentrate on your studies and think of mylot as a parttime job. just bear in mind that no matter what you do in your life, excelling careerwise, mylot would always be in your pc as a parttime job and hobby. so don't be sidetracked. you need to focus.

I had experienced the same when I started with mylot. I got so addicted to this that I stay up to 4am. There were even times that I didnt want to work and just want to spend time here. However, I passed and there are even days not that all I want to do is relax and have nothing to do with mylot and internet.

I would advice you that you must pay more attention towards your studies and placement. You can earn much when you will become a qualified Engineer. Earning though mylot, I think should be persued as a hobby and as a secondary aspect. Whenever you are free...you can log on to mylot and discuss, whatever you feel like. with best of luck and best wishes! deepak

You are exacty in correct way. You are doing engineering inorder to set a good job. But if you get a good job you want to work hard. But in the case of mylot, you want to work a little and can earn much more. This has on meaning that i you to stop your studies. You was now a student. Your main job is to study. You you want to give more attenting to that. And you do mylot as a partime because your parents may have somuch hope on you, also they don't have any idea about mylot. So they don't allow you to do fulltime in mylot. So i requested you to give 72 percent attention on studies and remaining 28 percent on our mylot.

Hey aliyaa, you are seriously off track. Get over it as soon as possible. You are not going to earn much here no matter how hard to try, I mean you are not going to earn thousands of dollars here except for hundred dollars and that is only if you had spent all your time here. Studies are more important in ones life, concenrate on your studies more than anything. Stop thinking about earnings, you are still a young girl bright future ahead, you'd get time for these in future. Use myLot for fun and be focused on studies. Yes this craze will not lost long and you better be studying lest it'd be all late. Sorry for acting like gran'pa haha. Happy discussions

Engineering might be hard. But it will paid off once you are on stage receiving your diploma. Waiting in line for an hour, but seems like a lifetime, just waiting for the announcer to call your name. Once you get that piece of fake paper and start packing out of the dorm to your new apartment. When someone ask you what do you do? You can proudly said with a grin, that you are an engineer. They don't know what an engineer do but they will still be jealous and thinking in their head that you must be pretty smart to make it that far. Just think it like that and hopefully you can get away from mylot. Because this place is not your future. If you are having a hard time with a course, you can come here and maybe ask for help. But you shouldn't spend so much time here. You need to continue with your school.

yes you are you will never ever make a living from my lot great fun that it is but if you get your education then you can become an independant person who will be able to support herself and believe me nothing can replace that !
