dubiousradical replied to your post: Why don’t my parents believe that…

idk i think in general parents don’t understand how college works. like when I went to cc my mom was all ur only taking 18creds? And I’m like only? I have a job and 18 creds. That’s a lot yo

yeah IDK? I mean both my parents /went/ to college, and my dad got his degree in electrical engineering an my mother went to a jesuit college and got her degree in physics so they really /should/ understand

but I think you’re right that they really just don’t understand 

my mother also doesn’t understand that unpaid internships are a bad thing and she wants me to get one (or six) and ????? no. paid internships are good. unpaid internships are companies taking advantage of students in a major way
