Nope, not happening. My dream is to become a writer, I don't want to be like my parents at all. My parents aren't happy and argue a lot, it's hard to see if they ever actually loved each other. I don't want an unhappy family, I'm gonna try my hardest to be a dependable wife/mother in the future as well as chase my dream. If I can at least have my dream I won't mind not having a family, my mom never chased her dream, and my dad worked all the time. I feel my parents would've been happier if they had focused on living a happy life. And I'm gonna try to not lose focus of my dream to become a published loved writer, even if I end up living a lonely life I'd still have fans that way. And I'd get to do something I love, though the second job to support myself will be annoying. But I really want it, so much that I've decided to go to a GED adult learning center to learn the stuff my parents neglected to teach me. Grr friends can push you to step out when you want to remain hidden, oh well, without my online friends I wouldn't be willing to try. -is a coward- Boy is getting interviewed for the class going to be hard for me, well I guess we'll see what happens when it happens. I just hope I don't say something stupid, or nothing at all because I'm too nervous to talk to a person I don't know.

But I'm not going to take my parent's path, I'm gonna walk on my own so I can gain the strength and happiness they lack. Hopefully I don't fall on my face, if I do I hope my friends will be there to help me get back up, since I am a coward. And once again I make an easy post into a long one. -hides-


holy i was in the middle of replying then I saw this... My parents r like urs unfortunately. Never happy with each other and my dad disagrees with my ideals and the future I want. As for u I wish u the best of luck in chasing ur dream to become a writer. Who knows I might read a story of urs 1 day

Anyway hmm I try 2 take sum of their advice but in a general idea(career and living wise)...... get the hell outta here!! When I get a child I'll try 2 b the coolest dad out there I mean I will b strict/protective at times and wont spoil my child but I'll do my best 2 understand him/her and him/her's feelings.

My career I was thinking about becoming an engineer but maybe I might change it cuz Im not so sure anymore. My dad wants me 2 bcome a buisness guy( I dont even understand stocks wth... and how it crashed in the first place or how it was made.) I hate suits, I hate going 2 meetings alot and talking about plans on a corporation. Thats just not my type of thing. I want my career 2 b something good and satisfying and will at the same time allow me 2 enjoy time with my family.

No i don't think so. i don't want to be like my parents. they are over proctective and when i'm going to my friends house they don't know they always say...."Get his phone number, where he lives and their parents cell phone number and work phone number" its like jesus christ i'm not gonna get kidnapped by my friends. also what they do is not one i'm looking at right now. one of my parent is a doctor and shes all like "be a doctor. doctors get paid more." i don't care about money. i'm not a greedy bastard.


I am not the only one as it is. Except for me, my parents tell me not to be a failure like them and they always say ''be a doctor,my wish is that I want you to be happy''. A*(*?&*tsugsayhbj? *(&?y I feel like swearing at them. I am not going to be happy being a doctor O_o. One day I had the misfortune of telling them I wanted to be a singer, damn I got lectured. Good thing my dream is to become a lawyer they've got nothing against that.

when you have very intelligent sisters, like me, its easier for the youngest one, me, to choose what ever you feel like it. cuz they that my sister's will be the cash flow in the family. but only one conditon. as long as i go to college.....easy? not in my situation. they want me to go and study in a very "high, presitgeous school. where the learning environment is great for the next generation of kids" yeah thats what they exactly told me.

LOL. For my parents thought one isn't enough. My big brother is a honored student and since I am getting sent to the same high school as him ( Please god spare me that) they don't want me to disgrace the family. My mom's friend even told her to change my name, like that my brother doesn't feel ashamed that we are of the same family (My brother hates me like HECK, and every time we are together and one of his friends are there he tells them that I've been adopted with a serious face, no JOKES.)-- it was unexpected but she got a slap from my mom (Trust me my mom knows how to slap). Apparently my parents want me to ''succeed in life''.

Btw : My little brother is in the same situation as you.

No..
I am one alone who follow my own path
Posted 6/18/08 , edited 6/18/08
I do not want to follow in my parents footsteps.
They had me when they were too old.. And I'm the youngest of 9 kids.. So they're really slack when it comes to me.
Basically, I get away with anything and don't get in trouble when I don't do things I should.. Which pretty much means I have no motivation to do them.
I'd be able to go my friends house 4 hours away by public transport and call up and then tell them I'm staying for a few days. -.-" Don't get me wrong, my parents aren't neglecting or anything, they just trust me. Lmfao.
Oh and when it comes to business my parents are way too kind, why lend out money when you can't afford too?!
Posted 6/18/08
Never!!! I'd rather choose my own path....
