PF W6 – My Income

             In the past year, I’ve earned and spent over $700.  I really hope I don’t do this again, though I think my income will significantly drop over the next few years because I can start getting jobs but nobody’ll hire me.  I hope this doesn’t happen but I expect it to.  This year…

S6 L34 – Photosynthesis
