I guess I'm a smart guy for a guy who quit school and got kicked out of the house when I was 19. Im 43 years old now. I spent 4 years of my life in the USCG, then became a OTR truck driver for 2 1/2 years. Partied myself out of a job then got a job working in a warehouse. I started going to scool for welding then got a job being a welders helper. Got laid off, then recieved a job in a recycling company in Richmond Va. Now Im a 1st Assistant Engineer in the Merchant Marine. I also trade the markets. And flips a few bonds for extra income. I guess I'm sorta proud of myself when I look back into my street running past. But I don't think I was that bad considerring others I knew.
