Set them down and tell them...

I love you so much and there is more to you than just being a good employee for Microsoft.  Or Exxon-Mobile.  Or Black-Rock.  Or Prudential.  Or Google.  Or Coca-Cola.

There is more to life than obeying your boss and doing everything they ask of you to make them richer.  There is more to life than listening to giant corporate America.

There is more to being Google's best employee.  Like perhaps..., coming up with a brand new idea that puts Google out of business? That makes a better cola than Coke?  That makes a better snack than Hostess Twinkies... That makes a software platform that makes Windows as outdated as the Commadore A600....

There is more to you... Explore your curiosity.  Learn what you think is fun.  Explore the possibilities.  Don't worry too much about failure... Live your dreams...   And never, never, listen to Corporate America....

And don't worry too much if you get a low test score on a bull sh*t test, made by a bull sh*t company, hired by a bull sh*t politician who received a bull sh*t payment to sell your parents a huge pile of bull sh*t...

You are way more important than any of that ....

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    she told me that she wanted to be a singer/songwriter. so i said: write a song, and sing it. there. you're a singer/songwriter

    she's now a sophomore creative writing major (anthropology minor, but that department will not give up trying to recruit her to major) at a small liberal arts college in NY's north country. she has boundless potential, but no obvious "job" prospects. she's studying french for the first time, with an eye on doing some volunteer work in haiti.

    i couldn't be prouder  :D
