    I spent basically all the money I had from working over summer on new gear and just hoped that gigs would end up paying them off. Got lucky with a couple and broke even.

    Alternatively, you could apply to be a sperm donor. I hear they make tons of money!

    I used up the remainder of my settlement money from being hit by a car and bought the S4.
