11. I really should stay off Face Space. I wouldn’t call it another addiction, but I am on the site incessantly it seems. I love to keep my “friends” updated on what is happening in my life. On September 3, 2013, I posted a picture and a comment about my newly purchased 2013 red convertible Mercedes Benz sports car with all of the creature-features. Boy, it is a sharp looking

90-R Revised 3/2/15 vehicle and I just had to tell everyone. On September 4 th , I let everyone know about the swimming pool I have been planning to put in and that I now had the money to go forward. On September 15 th , I posted a note about my recent visit to the race track, saying, “There’s nothing better than the exhilaration of a great day at Shoreline Downs.” Since my gambling addiction is under control, an occasional trip “to play the ponies” is a good outlet for me. Besides, it takes my mind off all of the money I send to my ex-spouse each month as spousal support. Do you believe s/he will get about one-half of my monthly disposable income for another four years?! I make about $110,000.00 at Pearson Precision, but that amount doesn’t go very far considering all of my expenses. 12. I know there are wild rumors out there that I go weekly to the Off Track Betting (OTB) location that is approximately two blocks from my house. There are also claims that I use the video lottery terminal game to an excess at Shoreline Downs. All I have to say is that these people should mind their own business. Once, when I thought I had a gambling problem, I met with this quack doctor. What a waste of time. S/He didn’t do anything for me. Sometimes, you get a little depressed after losing money. I once lost $20,000.00 in one weekend. I never worry because I am always able to get money when I need it. I now realize that it was a big mistake to accept Mr./Mrs. Aldrich as a “friend” on Face Space. 13. The money that Mr./Mrs. Aldrich may have seen on my coffee table is the money I earned as Treasurer of the Booster Club. As I noted above, I am paid a stipend of $12,000.00 per year or $1,000.00 per month. So, to keep from having to write out checks, I use the Club’s ATM card to withdraw $500.00 on the 1 st and 15 th of each month. The June 15 th withdrawal slip shows a “Cash Advance From Credit” denial comment. That was just a “fat - finger” error on my part. I hit the “Cash Advance From Credit” icon by mistake. Anyway, I like to keep my stipend money on hand instead of depositing it into my own bank account. I know I could have arranged for direct deposit, but who wants to go through that hassle. Besides, who doesn’t like the smell of fresh new money?! So, the money on the coffee table was my Tre asurer’s salary from June to September, approximately $4,000.00. You can check my 1099-MISC statement I filed with the Internal Revenue Service in January 2014 showing my Booster Club compensation for 2013. As you know, the ATM machines dispense twenty dollar bills. Four thousand dollars in twenty-dollar notes will look like a lot of money from a distance. I may also have had some other of my money on the table as well. I just don’t

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
