I am in it because my first career didn't work out.

I had dreams of being on PBR and having people admire me across the country.  My dad started me off on pigs at about 9 years old, but I let him down.  My career lasted just over 18 seconds spread over four bulls.

That was my real passion.  Lawyering just seemed like a cool back up.

please translate for those of us who have no idea wtf you are talking about.

<------- hoping this has nothing to do with beastiality, but if it does will forward thread to cal.

I think he means "Professional Bull Riders" tour.  It's shown on ESPN 2 quite a bit.

Well Case just offered me 9k, it was enough to sway me, looks like is CWRU next year!

Congrats on the Case acceptance and 9K scholarship!  I'll take your $8K from C-M now that you'll not be needing it...   ;)

I'm really not sure either, but obviously need to decide soon b/c the second seat deposit @ CM is due the 1st of June, which sucks because it's before that admitted students day @ Case.  A lot of people I talk to say staying in Cleveland you can do pretty well going to CM & make a lot of connections.  I was really impressed with Case though, I have no clue what to do.  It's hard to turn down free, but to keep CM scholarship I need to keep a 3.2 or something, which  may not be that easy & Case is just "in good standing"... I think it would be easier if someone else would just tell me where to go, I can't decide! ???

1)  Go to Case
2)  Give me your C-M $$   :D

I doubt that!  Every good FF I know lives for a structure fire.

Oh, you're right about that.  It used to be fun for me, then I made the dumbass mistake (three times, no less) of getting promoted.  Now I'm responsible for everything that goes wrong on the scene and I get credit for nothing that goes right.  The guys on the nozzle get all the fun and I get all the paperwork and Monday morning quarterbacking from the chief.   >:(

one can believe/think what they like.  its when it escapes from your mouth is when it becomes public, and therefore you become culpable for it.

free speech is limited, anyway.  you can't yell "fire!" in a crowded movie theater, etc. 

But can I yell "Theater!" in a crowded house fire?   ???

jk, usually I'm mumbling "oh, sh*t" in house fires...

I sent them an "um...about that decision" e-mail on Monday and have not yet heard back from them.  They must be really busy or very adverse to giving out bad news!

Anglo-Saxons are over-rated. It's us Scotsmen who are the shiznat these days...

TITCR.  1/2 Scottish and 1/2 Irish here.  I'm a golf-playing, drinking, fighting Scots/Irishwoman.  And I've the red hair to prove it... :D
