I am so tired. I don't want to go to any stupid university. I almost feel like telling them oh ok say NO one more F*****G time and I won't go to university. Or you let me study what I want or I won't go to college! I said I wanted to go to this Institute(which is cheap) to study chef in which they actually know how to teach and yes I'm sure of it. They said NO. I said I wanted to study at another institute to study chef and they said NO. I almost feel like telling them to f**k off then! I want to study chef but it's only to please all those people who think that university/college/etc. = money. I'm working on gaining money as a blogger right now - no I'm not gaining any money right now - but I;m sure that if I don't give up eventually the money will come on it's own. I think going to college is a waste of time and money since I am sure I won't work on chef or anything. And then they complain to us kids that we are too spoiled! Well WHAT THE F**K how the F**K am I and my siblings supposed to move on in life when they do everything for us and don't give us freedom! I swear to God I am moving to another country with my girlfriend as soon as I finish all this mess and get my OWN money. They complain? Oh I am sorry I don't give a d**n. Does anybody related to my situation in any way or have any advice to offer me?

Firstly, I think that you need to calm down. We could do without the F bombs, even if they are starred out. Now here is a good question -- are YOUR PARENTS paying for your college education? If they are, you need to understand their position - it is a huge investment for them. I never got lucky enough to have parents that paid for my college tuition. If you want to make independent decisions about your future, it sounds like you need to be independent from your parents. That means cutting financial ties. If you live in their home, get a job and move out and pay for your own class tuition. Yes, you are an adult, so you SHOULD be able to make your own decisions - on your own dime! I can understand why your parents might be wary about where their money is going - college is expensive - I might be too, if I were your parents! What you really need to do is cut the financial ties, become independent, and do what you want with your life. Your parents might be upset at first, but they will understand when you can prove that you can be independent and make independent decisions for yourself and provide for yourself. That's what I think anyway. Best of luck to you!

it all depends on your decision and if you have the gut and will to become a chef and then you can whole heartedly pursue your passion and go for it.since after some time you can prove your mettle and bring laurels to them and later your parents will realise that they could have taken a wrong decision .so at that time you have to be bold and stand by you to set a benchmark.so always stick to your decision and i would say never ever give up on studies at any point of time even for anyone just because they oppose or they dont favor it.Have your perception and dreams/imagination fixed and keep moving on
