All too often families who have encountered significant prejudice over the generations will utilize their children as the means for upward mobility. I think your mother is really concerned about either her financial security, her prestige, or her lineage through you. I was raised Jewish so I know exactly what you are going through, except in my case it was my father's parents who were the most concerned. One day, my father had taken me to visit them, and they asked me straight out: "are you going to be a doctor?". I said "no, I want to be an astronaut". My dad's dad was very concerned that I didn't want to be a doctor, and my father told him: "this guy (me) has no limits". You should consider that you have no limits either. I mean, under the right circumstances, a climatologist can save thousands, possibly millions of lives tracking or predicting hurricanes. Geology can be a very profitable science, a lot of geologists are employed by the energy and gem industries. I think you are taking exactly the right subjects to lead a successful life. As long as your GPA is a 3.0 or better, your mother should have no cause for concern. But I suggest finishing high school with calculus if you can, even if you need to take summer sessions for the prerequisites, as higher math always comes in handy. Good Luck!

just let him do what he needs to do. i am sure he still likes you, just now isnt a good time. maybe he is under alot of stress. but if talking to him hurts you, dont do it. give it time and he will come to his senses. if it was meant to be, something will hapen.

I think you need some help with a counselor. You need to express your feelings to him or her first and then get some help in figuring out a way to approach your mother. This approach needs to be done carefully, as you don't want to alienate her ... you just want her to back off a bit on the doctor thing. (BTW: There is NOTHING wrong with her pushing on the grades part of it! That's the job of a parent!) A good counselor can help you formulate an approach and then can arrange a meeting with your mother. I would suggest doing it on "neutral" territory as people tend to get less upset and angry that way. As long as you are heading into a good profession, a doctor does not have to be the one you choose. You might wish to point out that the pay scale is not all that great any more considering malpractice insurance and lowering insurance reimbursement (at least in the U.S.). Good luck!

I would do what I want to do because in the end it's not my mom that will have to live with that choice.

Monta Originally Answered: my dog ate m&ms (i didnt feed him it)?
Hm. A bag of m&ms isn't normally enough to make a 30 lb dog ill, but your dog is clearly sick. It may be a combination of the sugar, caffeine, and theobromine, but vomiting and excess thirst are two telltale signs of theobromine poisoning. How long has it been? If it's been less than two hours induce vomiting. Feed him a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide, one at a time, until he vomits. Call your vet and ask for advice, a phone call is free. If your dog is not looking better within 24 hours surrender him to somebody who can provide veterinary assistance. Theobromine poisoning can take up to a week to kill a dog and if this has happened and he's having an acute reaction then he may experience neurological dysfunction and/or organ failure. If your dog begins showing symptoms of lethargy, hyperactivity, vomits or poops blood, excessive urination, excessive drooling, shaking, seizures, muscle spasms, or anything else out of the ordinary he needs to get to a vet immediately. Inability to provide veterinary care is inexcusable. Saying you cannot take him to a vet does not make home remedies suddenly appear out of thin air. If such remedies were readily available, practicle, and at all reliable then the vets would be out of business. Failure to provide veterinary care is a criminal offense and is punishable by fines and jail time. Please reconsider your ability to care for this dog if you cannot provide basic veterinary care in the form of a $40 checkup and $50 for blood work. Consider borrowing money or applying for care credit. Some vets still offer payment plans.
