Whoa, that's a pretty impressive bunch of posts...It takes some pretty big "NADS" to come forward to come out with what you guys said. Especially in this day of "me first, screw them and who cares" attitudes. That says alot about you guys, you're not "snot-nosed punks" scalding the almighty buck 'till crisp and at Mom & Dads' expense.
I've had to work my ass off to get what I've needed/wanted. My parents were both immigrants - Father from Sicily, mother from Italy and it was tough but we got by, by putting your head down, working hard and setting realistic goals - anything is do-able. I wasn't able to afford a college education until I was 30, but I payed for it the first year out of audio school. Now I ride around the country/world in tour busses making "outrageously STUPID money" doing something I enjoy,
My hat's off to you guys who posted and are realistic in your thoughts & ideals. Those posts keep things realistic and you guys need to take a bow
