16 going to start my own bank account
Yeah I think I'm going to take the first step to making money. I'm going to open up my own bank account. I'm pretty sure I need a guardian. But every time I ask my mom to do anything that will allow me to be a little dependent of her she has to argue and if I have to convince her, which takes forever to do. For example, it took me like days to convince her to let me do virtual school in the 9th grade, and also a very long time to convince her to let me drop out this year when I realized school wasn't working out for me. (im getting my GED so shutup lol) I feel that she'll even not wanna let me start a bank account. How would I convince her to let me do this?

Wow, it sounds great that you're so independent already!
Just be careful -- the banks are tricky SOBs:

I opened my first bank account when I was 17 - well actually I won a competition run by the bank for school kids and the prizes were your own bank account with .... £3 in it.... !!!! (In those days, 8 hours working in a shop on your feet all day earned you £3.59 so that was a lot )
I still have that as my main checking account nearly 35 years later (though I have a few others too to be on the safe side - not that I don't trust bankers but... )

Present her with the benefits of your becoming responsible with money.
I strongly recommend reading this book before you get started, and especially before you get a credit card.
