Life of the Average Graduate

 

In my mind: Can i make it in the real world? 

 

My Parents: Yes, you will no matter what.

 

Will i amount to anything?

 

Of course you will. We didn't, so you have to!

 

What if i don't want to go to college?

 

That's nonsense! We want you to have a better life than us, and you need to go to college to do that!

 

I feel like i'm a worthless human being. That i no longer serve a purpose. Because all i do is work minimum wage, live in your house, and have no social life. I wasn't good enough to get scholarships. So if i even wanted to go to college, i'd have to pay a fortune.

 

It's okay honey. Things will get better. You'll go to college. We didn't, so you have to! (A couple years later, and nothing changed. My parents then gave up on me. I didn't want to waste all my money that i earned from my tedious day job on college. I'd probably end up broke even if i did, and fail. They also kicked me out, so i now reside wherever i can. If you have a place i can live, please let me know.)
