Default good lord my family is stupid

this is probably about as stupid as my family can get. long story short: i'm a college student at the moment and i want to get the best education I can get so i can get a good job. I'm heading down the health sciences field (not necessarily pre-med) but like I want to be involved in a clinical hospital setting. So i take the initiative and apply for EMT classes in addition to my school work. My family hears that i'm WORKING and god forbid ****ing asian parents don't want their kids to work because they want us to focus on our education, but how am i suppose to have any work experience and actually put up a good resume when i don't get involved in my field of interest. Now my mom is pissed at me and she says i'm not focusing on school and she refuses to talk to me. my dad thinks i'm a rebel and he tries to get me back into education, but here is the ****ing thing: I AM THINKING ABOUT MY EDUCATION BY GETTING INTO A WORK THAT IS RELATED TO MY FIELD OF STUDY!!!! good god my parents are idiots.

Your mom won't talk to you and your dad thinks you're a 'rebel' because you got a job?

Don't know if they're stupid, but I do know they really need to lighten up a bit.

Is this what life was like when you were 12?

So what happens when they catch you smoking weed, drinking alcohol, and having sex with black girls?

Do you live at home? I hate to say it bro, but fu*k em'


Fu*k em' right in the ear. You're obviously doing what you need to do...and working in the field in which you're also studying for, so you seem to have a good grasp on what you need to do for you. Your parents cant live your life for you. Your mother can sulk all she wants, she'll get over it.

And dad will get over it as well. Let them throw a tantrum. You do what you need to do.

My friend goes to a small tech college and since he won't play baseball his mom always makes fun of him and took him off of her insurance.

I'm so glad my parents were clueless of 99% of what I did in college.

they do realise that kids are taking up drugs and having babies?

getting a job even if it is taking focus from education is not the worst thing that could happen.

Man, just lie. Tell them it's part of the program at school. Like a Co-Op progam.
