    Yeah, even though its a lot of work, and there are virtually no girls worth my time here (4 guys :1 girl), its been a good experience, I've made lots of good friends and I'm getting the education my parents never got (sends thanks out to my parents). Its a good place. I think I made the right choice.


    that was 14 years ago...

    Times have changed a bit haven't they.
    Never stop learning.

    No college, Military, Navy, Submarines, 50k a year. I get to retire in 13 years at age 38. Too bad its not enough to not ever have to work again.

    Currently own 2 homes. Rent one live in the other. Goal is to have 10 by age 38 then sell them off and move to somewhere tropical and get fat and happy

    Interesting thread, there are a lot of smart guys here! I'm more of a hands on guy, I work in the maintenance shop of a small ski area. I work on everything there, snow blowers, snowmobiles, and Pisten Bully's (snow cats). I also work on the ski lifts, a couple of Hall's built in the early 70's and a couple of Yan's built in the mid '80's.
    Orange cones fear me.

    First post on this forum Actually don't have a WRX yet but I will by June! Currently drive what might actually be the opposite driving experience of a WRX; a Ford Explorer Sport Really looking forward to selling it and joining the club

    I graduated college w/ a MIS degree in December and have been working for a month as a "diagnostic analyst" for a company called Dictaphone. Lotta training right now but I'll eventually be supporting their hospital dictation/transcription systems. It's a job (w/ benefits) for now.
