Your House As Seen By:


Yourself



Your Lender


Your Buyer

If you consider it a sport to gather your food by drilling through 36 inches of ice and sitting there all day hoping that the food will swim by, you might live in Vermont.

Bill Gates Speech ....

Rule 1: Life is not fair -  get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about  your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish  something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3:  You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a  vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule  4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.  

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.  Your Grandparents had a  different word for burger  flipping - they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you  mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your  mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were  born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way  from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening toyou talk  about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain  forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the  closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may  have done away with winners and losers, but life  HAS NOT. In some  schools they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you  want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in  real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters.  You don't get summers off and very few employers are  interested! in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.  

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life.  In  real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.  

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up  working for one.
