I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions on how I can make money. I am currently 14 (just turned today derp). I looked at all my local restaurants and local stores, but none were offering job opportunities.
Thus, I am leaning towards online ways to make money. I thought about making money via programming (as in minecraft mods) but I am pretty much a novice and can only do simple things which cannot compete against the likes of ThaumCraft, IC, etc. etc. And probably won't be able to make a mod to generate enough popularity to be worth the time.
And if you are wondering why I am looking to make money, it is cause I need a new laptop for school (it literally is mandatory) next year in high school. And because of my courses, it needs to be quite powerful and with decent battery life (two things my 4 year old laptop does not possess). That is why I am looking to earn around $1000.
Though I do not necessarily need to make the $1000 immediately, but rather at least $200-$300 (from now to mid-August) to show my parents I can pay them back if I need them to shoulder the payment first.
You could ask your neighbors for jobs like baby-sitting, shoveling snow, etc.
Shoveling snow is out of the question, winter is ending soon for me. (plus most of my neighborhood seems to shovel/plow themselves)
And I am not that friendly with them that I can babysit their child (oh wait, their children are already in college derp)

Though it'll be a last resort. Oh yeah I forgot that I had two kidneys, I am so going to sell one off at my local walmart (cause everyone knows that walmart is just a cover)
You could try be a bit friendlier. People are trying to give you ideas. You are just shooting them down; you never said where you live, the age of your area etc.
This is very unlikely to happen, but you might become famous on youtube and earn money or create a viral video.
I was thinking of making money off of youtube videos. But that requires a direct payment to the bank account. I probably can't convince my parents to even let me do anything with their accounts.
Even if I did, it is one of those things where you can't be successful if all you are doing it for is money, exception is viral videos.
If you want to earn that money you'll have to get off your **** and away from the computer. Time for a reality check - the likelyhood of you getting any coding work or becoming a youtube sensation before August is zero.
If your local stores and restaurants aren't hiring, volunteer at one you like. Show them that you're willing to work hard and be enthusiastic and you'll be first in line when a position becomes available - which would be more often than you think.
