Hey, guys i am just posting here to get rid of some anger and ask you for some suggestions.
I am going on a trip this summer across russia and china by train, with a friend of mine. My grandmother came over today and started talking how I should be like a banker or an actor. Honestly I have no desire for those types of jobs. As of right now I enjoy teaching math, but I have a long way to go to becoming a Math Professor. I just wish that she would understand that I am not that interested in material wealth.
But what really pissed me of was when she said, why are yougoing to China, and what possible could I learn from a 3rd world country.
First of all china is NOT a 3rd world country. And there are a million things I could learn how people live, understand the world better, how people live, what I could do to make the world a better place.
Sometimes I dont know how to deal with her comments. I wish she would just leave me alone when it comes to things like those. Has any one experience anything similar to this.
P.S. I am guessing I shouldn't even tell her that I plan to do Peace Corp after college.
