no, I cannot. the first reason,

is that I do not do construction work. but I work both with and around guys that do. I have enormous respect for them, they can pull off stuff that... well I will leave that one there.
I enjoy talking with you and please take that as a compliment to both you and your parents.
you are a pretty smart girl, I wish that I could have met one like you.
you are correct about not arguing with Your instructor's too much. this is NOT selling out.
as a former instructor myself, I can tell you that some of them are there just to lord over their knowledge, not teach it to others.
as your studies are based on subjective subjects....
they can get away with it.
