Enrolled in a Modern Language class to complete my Themed courses, the class is Aging and Literature.
Pretty interesting class and a lot of things being learned. One of the main things that struck me were about parents wanting their kids to be successful in life. And not only being successful but more successful than the parents were. Which is true, most parents work hard to give their kids a good future and a chance at a great future. This is how we were all raised, to strive to make it bigger than our parents.
My teacher then went on to explain to us, the class, how this way of growing up just isn't possible anymore. The country is running out of room in the white collar level job industry because of all the people and parents, or something like that lol. She said it was sad that it's economically impossible, with an exception here and there, to really succeed our parents.
Kind of kills yours dreams huh? I guess not everyone can be a doctor ;). What do you think?
