A method for livelihood

Maybe, one year ago, when you tell me that the game gold can be exchanged some money, I will doubt your words. But Last night, I saw that my brother had won some FFXI Gil in the net game and believe that the fact that playing game can make some money is right. Hence, I am willing to see how he finishes that progress by himself to earn the money. Besides, I understand why he spends so much time on the game so that when he graduated from school, he chose to make good use of winning some FFXI gold to live in the society. From then on, he does not need to go through the working pressure, instead of living happily and freely with the game. When understanding his behavior and seeing his happiness on the face, I am too curious that I ask him for the Final Fantasy XI gold to learn how to play the game and how to earn some money from it.Accepting his advice, I begin to play the game with the gold that my brother gave me for free. In the following, I find the game is designed very sophisticatedly and need some patience that you need pay for it. However, at the beginning of the game, because I was a new member and knew little on the game so that I lost a lot of gold. But it is lucky for me that I make a great progress very quickly and have been familiar with the game gradually under the help of the friends from the strange friends. At the same time, I have attempted to win the cheap Final Fantasy XI Gold by myself, not to buy FFXI Gil with my money. As a matter of fact, I can say that I know what my brother has done in the net game completely and believe that he will become a professional player in the world of the game. As a result, he has promised that in a few years, he will set up a net company to own his career in the near future. After listening to his words, I am very excited because he has been a good boy and has his own idea for his rest living without any help from his parents.In order to get some good other opinions from my brother, I make a decision that I would like to make use of my most time to learn from him to think over my own career.
