This is a thread for people who took time off. If you didn't take time off, I don't think your presence in the thread is valuable.
I'm sure there are threads where your input is actually relevant. But if you go into a thread for X and your only input is not-X, just move along.
I'm surprised you're being this rude, I liked your story the most. Quite frankly, I threw in my input because there was this perception that if you don't take time off then you're insane. I didn't agree with, I posted, accept it. I still liked your reasoning regardless of what you think. We'd probably end up doing the same work ironically. Now as far as "buying me a Mercedes." You TLS people are hilarious. You think you can interpret something like that out of context? Let me put it in context and make you feel like a fool for that comment. I have never owned a car in my life, grew up in the inner city and went to UG off of scholarship and grants. My friends all got to study abroad in Prague last year and I couldn't go for financial reasons (surprising huh?). I've always want to travel to Europe, I've been France once....you know...when I had to go there while switching planes when my mother fleeing her war-torn country...you ignoramus. They have saved up my entire 4 years of undergrad and promised to get me a mild and respectable car for being the first one out of my entire generation of cousins to finish undergrad on time and for being a role model to my younger family members. I don't feel I need it while in law school, thus I said I'd rather get to travel because I don't know when I will be able to again. Yeah, but that kid sure is "entitled". I could care less about anything else said in here, but no one will ever call me entitled...that's a slap in the face to my entire family.
