Most Helpful Guy
Eh, you're under 18 so I wouldn't worry about either yet. I still don't have either and yeah, I get pretty sad/angry sometimes.
It's true that money doesn't buy happiness. But I think it's also true that money does buy an end to a lot of frustrations. So when they say money doesn't buy happiness, I think it's better to say "money ALONE, doesn't buy happiness".
If you want money you need a skill, and if you want a skill that comes from some kind of knowledge or education, usually from school but not necessarily. Find the things you like and get good at those. So I'd say do your best in school but remember to have some fun too.
As for the girlfriend, I don't know. But at 18 you have time to wait. Enjoy being a kid a little while more. You'll never be able to get that back again once it's gone. I still wish I could go back.0
