rwilson37643 is on a distinguished road
I certainly will not give you my name or that of my employer. I never said that I came from abject poverty, only that I had been living with limited funds. I had a very successful though unfulfilling management career before attending law school. During the last six years of that career my family was living on one income while my wife attended school. For three years we only had my wifeís income while I attended school. I graduated from Vanderbilt School of Law in 2009, took and passed the Bar exam at the Arlington Convention Center in July of 2009.During the two years immediately following law school any extra money went to paying off debt. As of last August we are debt free. I work for a large law firm in Houston; my wife is a nurse practitioner. Between our salaries and capital gains from investment properties we make just over three hundred thousand dollars a year. By late this summer, thanks largely to the sale of our home in Nashville, we will have two hundred thousand dollars for a down payment on a boat. I didnít share this information before because I didnít think it was relevant.
Catalina did build a twenty-one footer, The Capri 21. Iíve never seen another one, but I loved mine it was built in 1979 and restored by Correct Craft in 1992. I sold it to a friend and know it is currently at a marina on Watauga Lake in northeast Tennessee.
As for the bashing of my typing prowess, that post was written while slightly inebriated, at four in the morning, on a borrowed computer, over a thousand miles from home. This is a message board pertaining to a hobby, I didnít think I would be judged so harshly for grammar and spelling or I would have waited till morning.
Iíve got to admit that although it was not my intent to learn a great deal from this post, (my intention was to vent about my wife and maybe come in contact with other with whom to share my hobby) I did learn something. I had no idea what the term ďtrollĒ meant. Had you not called me a troll I would not have looked it up.
In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory,[2] extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[3] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.[4] The noun troll may refer to the provocative message itself, as in: "That was an excellent troll you posted".(Wikipedia)
What in this post was inflammatory? How could my post provoke an emotional response?
I will not post here in the future, and I apologize for any perceived inconvenience.
