It's only meant to expand one's outlook about how money goes into the picture of career choices in response to her very first post on this matter in a different thread (the one where she told us about how this career-choice-problem-with-mom came about). I should have put the response there but I couldn't find it.

    My mom was 65 years old when she defied my dad and decided she's going to work. Before that, she was a stay-at-home-mom from the time she got married at age 24 (My dad insisted that his job is good enough for the family even if he was only a start-up salesman while my mother was an established midwife). She worked at K-mart folding and arranging clothes on display. Made her very happy.

    There's only one thing constant in life - and that's Change.

    I guess what I meant to say is lets just keep this thread about her joyous moment and not worry about tomorrow.

    I agree with Heff...most people spend their entire lives figuring out what they want "to do"!!! I believe..if you are lucky enough to love what you do...then girlfriend...you are on your way! I'm proud of you Lauren..and I'm confident you've taken a big step. Whether or not you end up as a groomer or not isn't the point. The point is..this is YOUR journey..no one elses...and to take one step forward is huge!

    You can close your eyes to things you don't want to see,
    but you can't close your heart to the things you don't want to feel.

    Thanks guys!!!

    I told my mom about it tonight. She's not happy, but it went better than I thought. She thinks I won't make anything and blah blah blah haha. I was good in my argument and made all of my points and I think I showed her it's going to be fine. She is just under the impression that it won't ever amount to anything. Welp, she's wrong..I'm going to make it amount to something.

    She brought up the whole needing a bachelor's. I brought up all the people in this crappy economy who have amazing degrees and are working in retail stores or factories because they can't get jobs in their fields.

    Oh, and she thinks I'll get kicked of of the health insurance. I told her no, I can stay on til I'm 26 now even if I'm not a student because of Obama changing it. She doesn't believe me and told me to stop being a smart ***. o.o She doesn't like Obama..
