Congratulations Sutabi. Don’t worry about your Dad being angry about you not going to college. I went and it is really overrated. When you finish, you still have to find a job eventually anyway so you have done more than a lot of graduates I know.
I think college must have changed a lot since the previous generation because my family was pretty happy that I was the first in my family to go. But at the end of the day, I am actually the worst off out of all of them because the 4 years of my life I wasted in stupid pointless lectures, the rest of my family were securing their ground in the real world and with 4 years work experience, you can get a better job than a new graduate with no experience.
I think you’ve made the best choice and that is to do what you feel is right. If you start living your life according to other people’s rules you probably won’t be happy.
I had an interview like the one you had once but unfortunately, I had to drive to get to it and I arrived early. Good idea I thought but I was on a 1 hour parking meter so I was literally ending the interview myself to avoid a ticket. Needless to say I didn’t get that job.
Anyway, good luck in your new job, I’m sure it’ll beat washing dishes all day. No doubt one day, you’ll be paying someone else to wash your dishes. Probably me ;).
