You Can be Anything... Except
Anything you want to be. Have you ever noticed a lot of parents will tell their children ''You can be anything you want to be when you grow up!'' Then when the kid says they want to be anything that isn't a secure job, such as a musician, comedian, or the president they start limiting you. Parents, I'd like for you to pick one. Either they can be anything, or they can be the thing you want them to be. When parents say that they're hoping the kid says something along the lines of a doctor or a lawyer. Anything that has even a moderate chance of failing isn't in a kid's career choice, even if it's not hard to get into it to begin with. Think of all the jack-offs we have in music and in comedy. With music you only have to have a pretty face, and possibly not even that. With make-up, auto-tune, and writers you don't have to do anything but sing. Then they have comedy writers, too. You don't have to do anything to get to be a celebrity nowadays. So parents, why are you worried about your child not getting into showbiz when it's easier to get into it than to get a job at McDonalds? You people make no sense sometimes, I swear.
