    I have to agree. I think the majority of younger people are looking for a good paying career that doesn't involve anything physical. Then they'll join a gym to get some exercise. Little do they realize that trade jobs (plumber, bricklayer, etc) pay very well and give you all the physical activity you need to keep in shape.

    There is a lot to be said for working in the trades instead of going white collar. Expecially in this day and age when jobs in those "more refined" occupations are harder to find and pay less than they used to.

    Very big congrats Brad! The coolest thing is not only did you graduate, but did it without borrowing money for your future.... you will have a very bright future indeed if you keep that up!

    Thanks WW. It feels good to be debt free. Without my grandmother and parents' help I would not be debt free today.
