Kasumi Posted July 30, 2011 Report Share Posted July 30, 2011 Last week, I finished my last recreational once a week ballet class for the summer. I wanted to continue for the year once a week, and until next summer I'd possibly try out the intermediate session. I proceeded to ask my parents if I could continue taking it for the year recreationally (once a week) but they declined. Them being Asian, *sigh* I guess are just stricter by nature. My mom always tells me to keep my head focus entirely on school and nothing else, but I'm naturally a hardworking student already who earns good grades. Probably she thinks I'll slack off or become obsessive with it or something? She's just like, "What possible benefits will this have for you?" In a rhetorical and irritated manner. My parents don't think arts have much impact so they're just like whatever about it. They told me I could just do it again next summer, but the thing with ballet is that you're supposed to be continuous with it, correct? I really want to continue, even if it's only once a week. But I'm not sure to convince them since they always seem to think I'm disrespectful for trying to voice myself. Quote Link to comment
