@ Seventhfloor. I am jealous! I have always wanted to attend Architectural School and kept putting it off. Hope you enjoy it!

I am a Real Estate Broker serving Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties. Prior to that I was and still am a General Contractor.

So here I am, a thankless poster, with a job, perenially broke, fighting for the rights of those with little property while I myself have none.

But, hey, be a good boy and stay in school, son. You might graduate to a life of champagne and caviar and the days of dining daily on a can of Tuna will be only a distant memory.
wait so you got an mba and youre broke? that doesnt sound very promising for me lol

I like the champage but not the caviar. More like starkist to sashimi

I'm a professional college screw-up (flunked out of NYU, only got a 3.0 at Queensborough because, well, it's Queensborough, haha) who is pursuing a journalism degree because... well, I don't know why. To appease my mom as long as I live at home, I guess. I like writing but I don't like journalism, so I guess my current goal in life is to get a decent enough job (props to Fred for posting that thread about the subway conductor test filings, btw, I'd actually like to get that job) to live on my own and work on my own creative stuff in my spare time. I write poetry and fiction, and I'm working on a graphic novel with my best friend who happens to go to sva. By "working on" I mean we get drunk on PBR in a Williamsburg bar and throw crazy ideas around all night, then return to his apartment where he makes character sheets and I attempt outlining the effing thing.

For money I work in the basement of Toys R Us. It's just as awful as it sounds.

I work in property management now full-time

It is a sweet gig as I can get up late, but I dont get home until real late, and I have to work lots of weekends late too

But I hope to break out on my own eventually
