I just straight-up told my parents I don’t want to be a french teacher anymore.
My dad? Scoffs at me. “Well… that’s disheartening to hear, I should just go back to India.”
Me: “Oh I’m sorry, it’s disheartening to know I’ve figured out what doesn’t make me happy anymore? Okay!”
Dad: “Then why are you in university if you don’t want to be a french teacher anymore?”
Me: “Hmmm, well let me see, I don’t know… because I enjoy what I’m studying? Gratification? Enjoyment? I like being a knowledgeable human being?”
