Not trust-fund. Let's just say blessed.

Too legit to quit.

If you want to call me a trust fund kid, that's ok. I don't have a trust fund, but ok.

Anyone who says lean on mommy/daddy for interest payments while in school might as well be a trust fund kid to me. My sister and I have to help pay my dad's mortgage.

White privilege


Haters are gonna hate.

As far as real estate, you invest when property is low when you know you can gain back money. Either you sell it at its highest profit or you take a hit. But you can take a hit and still make money on it. It depends on where you bought the land. That's why some markets now are doing fine. Not many, but if you live and choose stable cities, your investment would be wise. Not sure why this is a confusing concept.

I'm waiting on you to explain why it's somehow easier to liquidate real estate in a tanked housing market than it is to cash out a 401K or something.

Also I have no idea what you were saying with your reply but I have a feeling it's applicable to precisely nothing we're talking about.


I never said that you would right now. Hence, why you take out loans now. You hold onto property for various reasons. One could be financial, another could be indecision about what to do with it, another could be because you want to build on it later on. I don't see why this is an issue of contention.

One should never liquidate their 401K. Period.

There are people that will have outside funding coming in, yet need loans now. That's the point.



Bearsgrl, I actually think I know what you're trying to say. It's just that you are TERRIBLE at saying it.

Because if you made money on the sale then it wasn't a loss

Not a ton. It's a mix of investment and my parents could sell one and I'd still be able to sell stuff if something unfortunate happened to them. We've already discussed this. If you want to call that trust-fund, so be it. I just call it smart planning.

I wouldn't put it past one of the legacy posters to do this. TLS probably gets really boring after a few years.




Ha ha ha seriously. What if awhile from now we find out it turns out to be waterman or something.

I'm not trying to be technical. I'm also trying to not get too specific so the loose language is going to make it more difficult to understand. So I generally don't disagree with you on this statement, but frankly, not enough in me to care. :D

I'm still skeptical that someone that intelligent could bastardize the English language as much as "BearsGrl" alt does :shock:

My favorite part about BearsGrl trolling is she expects perfect grammar and flawless logic from her counterparts, but has no qualms with being completely incoherent and obtuse.

I did UG in the Midwest and grad. school on the West Coast. I "studied abroad" in Australia.

In N Out just isn't that good. It's fine, but not as great as the CA peeps (and now TX) make it to be. That's all.

Because it starts while you are in school....


Yes, but if you know you're going to law school, you should have monies saved or you should ask parents to pony up the interest costs. This is a given.



:lol: :lol: :lol:


1) A significant number of us don't have parents who help out for a variety of reasons.

2) The money you saved should go to school expenses, decreasing your principle taken out, not the interest on the loans you take out for school expenses.

3) I'm pretty sure I don't go to law school with you, which makes me glad given your willful special snowflake blindness.

In business, a loss is a loss. A gain can still include a loss. If you only earn 30,000 but could've made 40,000, that's still its own type of loss. Of course, it's still a gain.
