So, today I was at work and I had a conversation with my workmate about cryptocurrency. He kept on insisting that it’s not real money and that people who use it are dumb for wasting their time on something that is made-up. I was so annoyed that he won’t listen even after I showed him articles and stuff. Completely ruined my day!

My eldest son wanted to stop going to college for this sem but I told him not to. But we can't impose what good we want for them. This covid pandemic makes everyone so lazy. I hope he changes his mind. 

 

I understand because you are a parent. I think it’s normal that people are a bit afraid to go out in this covid19 pandemic. But if your son takes a break for 1 year, I think it’s okay too. He can continue his study next year. I also took a break for one year in the college because I should do something. And I continue my study again the next year and everything was good. I still got a good job. I hope you will not worry too much :)

Try not to pressure him.  Although you know things from experience  and you want to share that knowledge for his benefit, your son has to be able to make his own decisions and his own mistakes.    Wisdom cannot be given; it must be gathered.

 

When I was in college, I decided to take a break.  It was one of the best things I could have done.  Although I enjoyed college life, I was a terrible student during the first two years in college.  I knew that I was just wasting time and money.  Looking back on it now,  I realize that I needed more time to mature and to focus on what I really wanted from college but back then all I was aware of was that I wanted to step away for awhile.  

 

My parents were Not pleased that I took time off but they tolerated it.  They tried to help me by making some suggestions but they did not try to drive my decisions, and I was grateful that they did not try to force me into a mold.

 

During that year off, I did some part time work.  At my parents' suggestion, I took some classes at a secretarial school.  I spent a lot of time thinking and reading.  As I had these experiences, I began to realize what fields were right for me and what sort of things I did Not want to get stuck doing for the rest of my life.  These were things I needed to figure out.  No one could have told me these things; I had to learn for myself.

 

When I returned to college, I was literally a different person.  I knew what I wanted and I was completely focused on my goal.  I changed my major from the "sensible" one that I had previously to one that was a bit more risky but much more fulfilling.  I went from being a below-average student to becoming a President's List Scholar making straight A's while taking the maximum number of classes my college would allow each semester.  I graduated near the top of my class despite my first two wasted years.  

 

CoVid will change the way all of us see the world.  It will change the way we interact in life.  If your son needs to step away to keep safe and also to think about how he wants his future to be, I hope that you will find the courage to allow him to follow his own path.

It might be a good idea if he stops for a sem, because of the pandemic. I don't know how bad is it in your place, but if cases are rising, then perhaps he should stay home for some more months.

 

Perhaps, you can bargain with him that if he chooses to stop for this sem, he might want to do some online courses and certificates at his leisure.

 

Back when I was in college, I also wanted some months of hiatus. I was in university at 16, coping with academic requirements and living on my own. The stress can sometimes be just too much.

 

Your son might be stressing over something too, he just wasn't telling you. Trust his views. He might really need the rest, so that he can be much better when he returns next semester.

Do you know what is even scarier than being ill for nearly five months?  Starting to get better is definitely scarier.  I worry that it won't keep happening and that I'll get ill again.  The relapse that I had already was worse than the first time I had CoVid, so my fear has basis in reality.

I understand that feeling. I was feel like what you feel. But even if we worry everyday, it would not extend our spand of lives. It is better to think from this POV. How if we live like today is our last day. Just enjoying everyday, day by day to be happy and stay positive. 

 

I hope you will always stay healthy and happy :)

Hi guys, I was hoping to start a new topic in Soompi Hangouts but it seems like I can’t start a new topic at all. Is it because I need a minimum number of posts or something?

 

I was hoping to ask for help because I want to send a care package to a friend in korea. His father just had a heart attack and is recovering in hospital, and I wanted to send the family something that would be suitable (in Korean culture) and also something I can order online to be delivered to their address. Can anyone help?
