It's me again, it's been too longSubmitted by Odessa_Heroine on Sat, 06/16/2012 - 13:18
It's been way too long since i've been on here. I've been busy with my senior year and i frankly was too saddened with everything going on to even care anymore.
Anyways, now i've graduated, i've told my parents i changed my mind about my goals of college and the American Dream. I (tried) to tell them my reasons, seeing College Conspiracy and the economy crashing. I told them all i want to do is start living off the land and learning manual stuff and everything, but they just wont understand. They wont listen to any evidence i have to give. They keep saying "Nonsense! Stop listening to those negative economists that cant predict the future!" yes, they believe in the false religion of higher education. Europe is COLLAPSING for Christs sake and on top of that, they just wont understand we're living with a fake currency that's about to end, and that inflation and this traitorous globalization has destroyed our future. They wont look at any other options for me. It's just pure CLOSED MINDEDNESS AND NORMAL BIAS they're displaying in spades. And yes they watch the lame stream media. They dont know anything about real economics. They keep assuming i'm lazy, lazy, lazy. They're so judgemental now.
Finally my dad told me "If you cant make any good decision on your own, i'll make those decisions for you now!!"
Obviously, I AM LIVID!!!!!!!! They really want to infringe on my freedom to make my own informed decision for myself??!!!! I guess it's time for me to find a job and get as far away from them as i can, because i just cant take that sitting down. When i was asleep I thought they were real parents but now, waking up, their REAL colors have shown!!! If they were real parents and really cared, they would SIT DOWN and listen to EVERYTHING i have to say and reserve judgement until they see for themselves!! They would support my decisions and try to help me instead of criticizing and judging me!!!!
I've thought of getting an apartment to myself, but i'm not sure i can afford it by myself, and i dont know anyone else i could get an apartment with besides my sister and her bf and my cousin, but i think of actually doing that and having to honestly explain why without sounding like a maniac! Ugh i never thought I'd be in this situation and now that I am, i just dont know what to do!
