four years of university seems like a long time when your an adolescent young man making the snap descion one day that it is the path for you. even from the day i chose the path in life to take, that being the university path, i was still unable to explain to any one who directed the question that in my opinion is the most generic, and pointless question to put to any young person still in high school that question being and i write this with the up most scorn “what exactly is it you want to do when you leave uni?”. Everytime i hear those words uttered i am instantly hit in the face with a wave of boredom which is quickly preceded by a massive urge to stand up flip over the table and leave without saying a word. however as this is a chilean way of reacting to a question you are not sure of the answer to and it has not yet reached the shores of our fair country, I have to make do with once again repeating the same shpeel that i have, i like to think perfected over the last four years. that shpeel goes something along the lines of this;
“well i would love to get into buying, but then also id love to have my own business like a shop……….”
sorry im bored already. it continues on like that for a good couple more sentences containing various different ideas and career choices that in the end only result in a look of complete despair on the face of the person who asked the question followed by one of “i really wish i never asked, this guys off his head”. well i say thats the price you pay for being a nosey (tried to think of a clever and quirky abbreviation for cunt but i couldn’t so apologies in advance for saying cunt) cunt!!
what i would really like to say is something completely mental just to throw them of and really wish they never asked.
in my opinion what you choose to do is for you to choose and for no one else to decide what should be the outcome of your life. life is not as straight forward as a simple snap descion and cant be planned by anyone no matter who they are. my favourite phrase that has stuck with me my whole life, is that age old saying that has been passed down from generation to generation through the time and space continuium that phrase being “play it by ear”, this phrase in my opinion was coined by an age old commitee made up of the wisest people from various different ages and they were all really sound. therefore like john candy says in the classic 80’s movie “uncle Buck” “if theres a six year old whos not a dreamer or doesnt have a silly heart i dont want to know um!!” or something like that anyway! in my case if theres a student who isnt a dreamer with various ludacris ideasabout there future and still isnt focused on one idea in particular the i dont want to know them!!
