i usually keep my life out of my posts; sometimes i'll complain about my day[s]..or i'll briefly describe my weekends, but generally, i dont like to get too personal. not that im shady or anything, but i dont get too personal with people very easily. with that said, im going to make an exception for today. i feel like im in a hole & i need different peoples advice. so if you dont mind reading about my slight issue, please continue on. if you'd rather stay out of it, its totally cool.
k. lets start. so, if you didnt know already, i LOVE Korean music; just a little more than a year & a half ago, my sister got me all addicted to kpop. & all & my mom thought i was a total freak! so last September, my sister, our friend, and i took a Korean class. [the class is NOT part of any college, so there isnt any credit earned.] my parents hated it but my mom hated it more than my dad. she thought we were just going to learn for the [hot] Korean guys, but really, we werent. plus, im not Korean so she thought it was a ridiculous idea to learn about another culture + language. but after the first semester ended, my sister & our friend didnt take the second semester but i loved it SO much that i took the second semester by myself. i guess i caught on pretty quickly cause i got moved up to the second level during my second semester only.
now that its September again, the Korean class is about to start - - next Saturday, the 11th, to be exact. [ ONE DAY AFTER MY 20TH BIRTHDAY!! - just sayin' ;) ] my little heart has already decided that it wants to take the class. i've already told my boss so my work days are already starting to work around the class. the only thing is that i havent exactly told my parents. i've tried talking to my dad about it & i just slightly brought it up & all he said was "dont waste your time, just finish college." i know if i bring it up to my mom, its gunna end UGLY so im avoiding that for as long as i can.
its $225 [or something] for a semester & i would obviously be paying for it myself - as i did in the other two semesters. but right now, money is a slight issue. since i got into my first car accident a few weeks ago, i need to save up to buy a new car. plus i, literally, had to pay out of my pocket for this semester at college since i was lazy & late and i didnt file for financial aid <--my mom is still SUPER pissed about that. but my mom was sweet & bought my books for me.
so my problem is... should i take a class that i really enjoy but my parents hate or should i not take it cause my parents dont want me to and i know i'll regret it ?? =(
i've only told four people about this problem of mine; my sisters both said "mom's gunna kill you." my cousin said i should just take it, and my awesome friend, Anouk, agreed and said to take it since i know im going to regret it later.
if you made it this far, thanks! <3 i really needed to get this off my chest cause EVERY time that i think about this, i go crazy - literally. i cant sleep because of this issue.
i'd really, REALLY, really appreciate some feedback. and again, sorry i had to get personal on this post =/ i'll get back to nails soon.
thanks much! <3333
