I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
They found out my schedule is going to be working 10-6 on both Saturdays and Sundays from now on, and they were both appalled.
"Both days?" my dad asked, concerned.
"Yup," I answered.
"Are you sure you'll have time to do homework?" my mom prodded.
Basically they've continued to tell me to cut hours at work if I need to and that they'd prefer I work - they think it'll be better for me psychologically to have a little income and to be social and active, and I agree - that I should most definitely quit if I can't handle work and homework and they won't accept me cutting down the hours.
Because they are two of the most amazing people I know.
