Do Dreams Really Come True?

As I get older and approach closer to college applications, my parents have been consistently asking me what I want to be when I grow up. However, I always try to ignore the question because I’m always nervous that my parents won’t support me or my desires. My parents have always convinced me to become a doctor or any occupation that could make money for our family. Although I do understand that my parents want me to be financially stable and hardworking, deep down inside I want to do what I want. I’ve known what I want to be for a while, and my parents probably already know how much I love doing it. However, I don’t think my parents have realized how serious I am about my passion. 

Music has always been a huge part of my life and it’s something I never get tired of. Knowing how much I love music, revolving my life around music and making people happy never sounded too shabby to me. Whenever I talk about my love for music to my parents, though, they only think of it as a hobby. They don’t believe that my passion for music could be a way for me to make a living. Despite their opinions, I like to have a positive mindset. Like Blair Somerville said in the short film “Lost and Found,” I believe that “you don’t need that much to live on, you don’t need much money.” I think my parents worry too much about my reputation and I wished that they understood my point of view. 

In the short movie “Scavengers,” the astronauts were seen reflecting to their past in the urban city world, feeling nostalgic since they are stuck in the other universe. I do have to agree that going through this route can be risky and unsuccessful, but I’d rather take the risk than live with regret in the future. I hope that I can prove my parents wrong by continuing to progress and improve every day. It would be a dream come true if I could attend a music school or become a music major in the future with my parents’ support.
