Confessions of A Political Mind

So I finally got up the guts to tell my mom that I've decided to go back to grad school, get my PhD and become a Poli Sci professor. Her very first immediate reaction was: "Oh GOD NO!!!" Not that I think God has anything to do with it of course, but she did make several appeals to the Heaven's Above for help....
Then she decided she might be able to swallow me going for poli sci if I at least become a lawyer or judge...or president. (GASP! cue scary music! cue scary music!!) She does have those dreams for me...and I'll be making lots of money too. (I don't know why she thinks I could be president. I'm not very good at fucking up....although apparently Clinton was just good at fucking...)
Oh well. At least my dad's being super supportive. But then, he was a Poli Sci professor too.

Well I'm glad you told her. I'm sure she'll get over it in a couple of days...I'm glad you found something you wanted to do though.
