the path ahead.

I realise that there are many sides to my dad. Living with him for 16 years I thought I had a full grasp of what he is like already. I thought wrong! Before he left for his overseas trip he hinted to me that he would like me to be a doctor, lawyer, professor or minister! WTH! Those paths are the ones I never wished to take :( ... and it wasn't easy for me to decide on my career path ( pondered on the idea of myself being a business women-something in finance or marketing. In such a way, it seems more interesting--I didn't had a quart-life crisis for nothing =.= )
BUT I NEVER KNEW HE WAS SO OLD FASHIONED IN THIS- gah-i-don't-even-know-what-to-say. (meant it in a neutral way.. i like old fashion..but but but this just give me a whole new headache altogether. )
I replied him that I could try marrying one instead of becoming one and he told me, " anything but a housewife then". Okay. I can fulfil that part for you :)))) .
Not only do I have to reconsider my entire future now but have to seriously wonder if I'm doing the right thing.
You see, if I plan to be cough-lawyer-cough. The main problem should be if I can make it. HONESTLY STUDYING LAW?! You kidding me!? The road to success just seemed so impossible and difficult. Now
Which goes back to the factors that might affect how I choose my career choice. Is it about being passionate or pragmatic ?!
Sigh I just want to earn alot of money so pragmatic it is. But I take literature! ( I know what the heck does this got to do with what I'm saying. Well that means I am a dreamy person! ) But one thing for sure I am not very career minded. Not really bothered on what I do as long as I have $$$$! plenty and plenty of $$!
