0:01:15.360,0:01:23.040
so how was this week’s uh full day of

0:01:20.080,0:01:24.720
funky homeschooling honestly it wasn’t

0:01:23.040,0:01:26.960
as bad as last week

0:01:24.720,0:01:28.640
we had our first flex day on wednesday

0:01:26.960,0:01:30.479
which was basically like

0:01:28.640,0:01:32.640
if you couldn’t catch up on all the work

0:01:30.479,0:01:34.960
you had extra stuff writing your classes

0:01:32.640,0:01:36.799
you could do it then that’s nice did you

0:01:34.960,0:01:39.680
find that you were falling behind

0:01:36.799,0:01:40.000
and needed that flex day no i actually

0:01:39.680,0:01:41.840
really

0:01:40.000,0:01:43.600
didn’t need it but it was definitely

0:01:41.840,0:01:45.680
good to have and i knew a lot of other

0:01:43.600,0:01:48.799
students were very grateful for it

0:02:47.040,0:02:50.879
so today we’re going to have a little

0:02:49.120,0:02:51.519
bit of fun we’re gonna do another one of

0:02:50.879,0:02:54.239
our q and a

0:02:51.519,0:02:55.760
sessions we’ve done those in the past

0:02:54.239,0:02:57.280
and the first thing we’re gonna be

0:02:55.760,0:03:01.040
talking about

0:02:57.280,0:03:05.840
is money and professions

0:03:01.040,0:03:05.840
ready to start sure all righty

0:03:08.720,0:03:17.040
so the first one’s kind of a riddle

0:03:12.239,0:03:20.480
we’ll say which would you rather have

0:03:17.040,0:03:23.519
a million dollars today or one

0:03:20.480,0:03:26.560
cent and have that value doubled

0:03:23.519,0:03:29.440
every day for 30 days oh wow

0:03:26.560,0:03:31.519
um i’d actually gotten a similar role in

0:03:29.440,0:03:33.440
math class where it’s like

0:03:31.519,0:03:35.200
you need it’s where we were learning

0:03:33.440,0:03:37.040
about different powers

0:03:35.200,0:03:38.319
and like you need to multiply by the

0:03:37.040,0:03:41.599
powers

0:03:38.319,0:03:43.200
um and this was one of the examples one

0:03:41.599,0:03:46.080
cent doubled every day

0:03:43.200,0:03:46.879
it doesn’t sound as though it would be

0:03:46.080,0:03:49.200
um

0:03:46.879,0:03:50.400
very complicated but on the first day

0:03:49.200,0:03:53.360
you get one set

0:03:50.400,0:03:54.400
on the second day you have one times two

0:03:53.360,0:03:58.159
wait no

0:03:54.400,0:04:01.439
one times one one plus well one plus

0:03:58.159,0:04:04.879
one which um was two

0:04:01.439,0:04:05.519
right then two plus two four the next

0:04:04.879,0:04:08.640
day

0:04:05.519,0:04:13.040
four plus four sixteen and so on right

0:04:08.640,0:04:15.200
for thirty days so would you rather have

0:04:13.040,0:04:17.199
a million dollars right now or would you

0:04:15.200,0:04:20.320
rather wait to see what that

0:04:17.199,0:04:22.400
equates to doubling that in 30 days

0:04:20.320,0:04:24.000
honestly the math’s a little bit

0:04:22.400,0:04:26.320
difficult although

0:04:24.000,0:04:27.520
i’m pretty sure it’s a pretty large sum

0:04:26.320,0:04:29.840
of money

0:04:27.520,0:04:31.040
but it would just be confusing so i

0:04:29.840,0:04:35.120
think i’ll just go

0:04:31.040,0:04:37.520
with um the the first one

0:04:35.120,0:04:38.720
okay because if you waited the 30 days

0:04:37.520,0:04:42.320
you’d wind up with over

0:04:38.720,0:04:44.960
5 million yeah but that doesn’t become

0:04:42.320,0:04:48.479
apparent until you get to like day

0:04:44.960,0:04:49.840
26 or something like that yeah

0:04:48.479,0:04:51.280
so all right well we’ll give you a

0:04:49.840,0:04:52.800
million dollars today and be done with

0:04:51.280,0:04:54.840
it then i’ll keep the other four and a

0:04:52.800,0:04:56.800
half million

0:04:54.840,0:04:58.960
yeah all right

0:04:56.800,0:05:00.320
uh the next question we have is would

0:04:58.960,0:05:02.960
you rather be a

0:05:00.320,0:05:03.840
boss or an employee if you had the

0:05:02.960,0:05:06.960
option

0:05:03.840,0:05:08.720
an employee and why is that well i

0:05:06.960,0:05:10.560
actually thought about this a lot and i

0:05:08.720,0:05:13.280
was originally gonna go with the boss

0:05:10.560,0:05:14.800
but then i realized the boss has a lot

0:05:13.280,0:05:17.360
more responsibilities

0:05:14.800,0:05:18.400
having to take care of any everything

0:05:17.360,0:05:20.960
and

0:05:18.400,0:05:21.680
just they seem to have all the power but

0:05:20.960,0:05:23.840
with the power

0:05:21.680,0:05:25.360
comes great responsibility that’s a

0:05:23.840,0:05:28.800
great spider-man quote

0:05:25.360,0:05:30.880
yeah um so

0:05:28.800,0:05:32.080
yeah i really wouldn’t want the stress

0:05:30.880,0:05:34.240
at work

0:05:32.080,0:05:35.440
um so i’d prefer to be an employee being

0:05:34.240,0:05:38.800
a boss is tough

0:05:35.440,0:05:41.840
it has it certainly has its rewards

0:05:38.800,0:05:43.759
and not everyone’s cut out to be a boss

0:05:41.840,0:05:46.639
it’s stressful and that’s for sure and

0:05:43.759,0:05:49.680
there’s a lot more responsibility

0:05:46.639,0:05:52.160
question three if we lost

0:05:49.680,0:05:53.840
everything we own today but could keep

0:05:52.160,0:05:57.600
three things

0:05:53.840,0:05:57.600
what would you pick and why

0:05:57.759,0:06:01.120
uh let’s see

0:06:02.000,0:06:06.560
hm so three things each are just three

0:06:04.560,0:06:10.240
things divided by the entire family

0:06:06.560,0:06:13.280
just three things entirely

0:06:10.240,0:06:14.160
well if we could i’d want to keep one of

0:06:13.280,0:06:17.360
the cats

0:06:14.160,0:06:19.360
okay um just one huh

0:06:17.360,0:06:21.039
both of them short we’ll keep both of

0:06:19.360,0:06:22.319
them all right so that’s two things down

0:06:21.039,0:06:24.560
what’s the last thing that you’d want to

0:06:22.319,0:06:24.560
keep

0:06:26.240,0:06:30.000
we’d have to keep some of the money if

0:06:28.240,0:06:32.240
we might have to keep some of the money

0:06:30.000,0:06:34.479
yeah because then you can we might not

0:06:32.240,0:06:36.319
be iceland we might not have as big of a

0:06:34.479,0:06:38.080
house or as much of the stuff we have

0:06:36.319,0:06:40.720
now but we’d at least have

0:06:38.080,0:06:41.840
enough money for us to survive so we’ll

0:06:40.720,0:06:43.919
keep two cats

0:06:41.840,0:06:46.400
and we’ll keep some of the million

0:06:43.919,0:06:49.599
dollars that you just got

0:06:46.400,0:06:53.199
sounds like a plan i i could see that

0:06:49.599,0:06:54.000
question four what is the hardest job in

0:06:53.199,0:06:55.680
the world

0:06:54.000,0:06:57.520
or what do you think is the hardest job

0:06:55.680,0:06:59.919
in the world and why

0:06:57.520,0:07:01.039
i’d say working in a hospital being a

0:06:59.919,0:07:04.639
doctor or a nurse

0:07:01.039,0:07:05.919
because on one hand you’ve got the

0:07:04.639,0:07:08.560
pressure of

0:07:05.919,0:07:10.560
if someone is in dire need of a surgery

0:07:08.560,0:07:13.599
and you’re performing that surgery

0:07:10.560,0:07:16.000
you’re basically like you basically

0:07:13.599,0:07:17.360
are you basically determine if the

0:07:16.000,0:07:21.360
person’s gonna live or not

0:07:17.360,0:07:23.759
yeah and i and like

0:07:21.360,0:07:26.080
when people don’t live having to tell

0:07:23.759,0:07:28.960
like the family that

0:07:26.080,0:07:29.599
about the loss of someone very close to

0:07:28.960,0:07:31.919
them

0:07:29.599,0:07:34.560
it’s gotta hurt and it’s gotta be hard

0:07:31.919,0:07:37.520
and no matter how many times it happens

0:07:34.560,0:07:39.360
you’re gonna it’s not gonna be something

0:07:37.520,0:07:41.199
like

0:07:39.360,0:07:42.880
if you’re a garbage person then like you

0:07:41.199,0:07:44.000
get used to smell you’re not gonna get

0:07:42.880,0:07:47.039
used to telling people

0:07:44.000,0:07:48.479
that their loved one died that’s a very

0:07:47.039,0:07:50.639
good point

0:07:48.479,0:07:52.000
very mature view on it yeah and

0:07:50.639,0:07:55.120
especially now

0:07:52.000,0:07:58.639
um with the whole

0:07:55.120,0:08:00.800
panic going around they have even more

0:07:58.639,0:08:01.840
um pressure on their hands having to

0:08:00.800,0:08:05.440
make sure everything’s

0:08:01.840,0:08:06.479
clean and like having even more people

0:08:05.440,0:08:09.039
in the hospital

0:08:06.479,0:08:11.039
so yeah you’re walking into you know a

0:08:09.039,0:08:13.280
danger zone every day you go to work

0:08:11.039,0:08:15.440
yeah and it’s scary and i definitely

0:08:13.280,0:08:16.400
commend any doctor that’s able to put up

0:08:15.440,0:08:20.240
with everything

0:08:16.400,0:08:26.400
absolutely question five

0:08:20.240,0:08:29.840
can money buy happiness

0:08:26.400,0:08:33.360
to certain extents okay

0:08:29.840,0:08:36.240
like i definitely think that

0:08:33.360,0:08:36.880
happiness can come from almost anything

0:08:36.240,0:08:40.560
whether it be

0:08:36.880,0:08:42.800
family friends animals or

0:08:40.560,0:08:44.080
just possessions in general especially

0:08:42.800,0:08:45.200
for people who are somewhat

0:08:44.080,0:08:46.880
materialistic

0:08:45.200,0:08:48.480
i definitely think that money would make

0:08:46.880,0:08:50.000
them happier but

0:08:48.480,0:08:52.000
it’s definitely not for everyone’s case

0:08:50.000,0:08:53.040
so it’s basically just on personal

0:08:52.000,0:08:55.920
preference

0:08:53.040,0:08:57.200
so so money can’t buy happiness but it

0:08:55.920,0:09:01.760
can’t hurt either

0:08:57.200,0:09:03.519
yeah so staying on the topic of money

0:09:01.760,0:09:05.760
if you had enough money that you never

0:09:03.519,0:09:06.720
had to work what would you do with your

0:09:05.760,0:09:10.320
time

0:09:06.720,0:09:11.760
well i’d probably go into movie making

0:09:10.320,0:09:15.200
like i am now

0:09:11.760,0:09:15.680
i’d probably um draw since i enjoy doing

0:09:15.200,0:09:18.080
that

0:09:15.680,0:09:19.920
and i might even become an author by

0:09:18.080,0:09:23.519
writing the stories that i enjoy

0:09:19.920,0:09:27.120
and um even possibly make some

0:09:23.519,0:09:30.320
small movies that um i can just enjoy

0:09:27.120,0:09:33.360
or share if people want to see it okay

0:09:30.320,0:09:34.560
good answer i like that so this one is

0:09:33.360,0:09:36.399
kind of a

0:09:34.560,0:09:38.480
i expect you to be sort of biased on

0:09:36.399,0:09:41.200
this question here

0:09:38.480,0:09:42.560
should children be paid to do household

0:09:41.200,0:09:46.000
chores

0:09:42.560,0:09:49.120
okay so total disclosure you are

0:09:46.000,0:09:52.720
i know so should children be paid to do

0:09:49.120,0:09:56.160
well it depends on multiple factors

0:09:52.720,0:09:58.800
one how how the parent how

0:09:56.160,0:09:59.360
like how much money the parents are able

0:09:58.800,0:10:01.600
how

0:09:59.360,0:10:03.600
like the status of money for the parents

0:10:01.600,0:10:04.079
because some parents can’t afford to

0:10:03.600,0:10:06.880
have their

0:10:04.079,0:10:08.640
children and give give them money for

0:10:06.880,0:10:11.120
the chores so they probably couldn’t

0:10:08.640,0:10:13.200
and i’m okay with and i’d be okay with

0:10:11.120,0:10:17.519
that um

0:10:13.200,0:10:19.920
and okay

0:10:17.519,0:10:21.519
sorry give me a minute so definitely um

0:10:19.920,0:10:25.120
that comes into play

0:10:21.519,0:10:27.519
also how well the um the child

0:10:25.120,0:10:29.279
does it because if they do like a sloppy

0:10:27.519,0:10:30.320
job they probably don’t deserve to get

0:10:29.279,0:10:33.680
paid

0:10:30.320,0:10:35.519
but it doesn’t hurt um same thing like

0:10:33.680,0:10:37.360
money can’t buy happiness but it doesn’t

0:10:35.519,0:10:40.560
hurt like

0:10:37.360,0:10:44.160
um think the thing is most children

0:10:40.560,0:10:47.519
unless they’re like super perfectionists

0:10:44.160,0:10:48.320
or enjoy cleaning or doing any other

0:10:47.519,0:10:51.600
type of chore

0:10:48.320,0:10:54.720
they mostly don’t enjoy doing the chores

0:10:51.600,0:10:56.399
and i don’t really think that i mean you

0:10:54.720,0:10:57.680
could try ways on how to make it

0:10:56.399,0:11:01.200
enjoyable for them

0:10:57.680,0:11:04.240
like um i don’t know

0:11:01.200,0:11:06.640
say it’s an adventure game

0:11:04.240,0:11:08.320
thing and if you’re able to do all this

0:11:06.640,0:11:10.160
you get a small reward at the end and

0:11:08.320,0:11:12.000
that reward doesn’t have to be money

0:11:10.160,0:11:13.440
the reward can just be like a small toy

0:11:12.000,0:11:14.399
and you don’t have to give your kids

0:11:13.440,0:11:17.120
money but

0:11:14.399,0:11:17.760
i definitely think that um giving your

0:11:17.120,0:11:19.760
child

0:11:17.760,0:11:22.079
at least a small reward after they do

0:11:19.760,0:11:23.600
their chores will set them up to realize

0:11:22.079,0:11:25.200
that if they work hard that

0:11:23.600,0:11:27.760
they need to work hard to get these

0:11:25.200,0:11:28.880
rewards okay so just to sift through

0:11:27.760,0:11:32.320
that incredibly

0:11:28.880,0:11:35.839
long and verbose answer

0:11:32.320,0:11:38.160
yes your answer would be yes right well

0:11:35.839,0:11:40.320
i think at least children should be

0:11:38.160,0:11:42.720
rewarded for their choices it’s a yes or

0:11:40.320,0:11:46.000
no question is it yes or is it no

0:11:42.720,0:11:49.440
sure that’s fine

0:11:46.000,0:11:51.920
yes fine yes yes

0:11:49.440,0:11:54.399
okay moving right along that was like

0:11:51.920,0:11:56.720
pulling teeth

0:11:54.399,0:11:57.600
uh okay this question is kind of

0:11:56.720,0:12:00.079
relevant but

0:11:57.600,0:12:01.360
kind of less relevant considering how

0:12:00.079,0:12:03.519
close we are but

0:12:01.360,0:12:06.320
could you save a dollar every day from

0:12:03.519,0:12:09.760
now until christmas

0:12:06.320,0:12:13.200
okay well that was easy enough yeah um

0:12:09.760,0:12:15.120
question nine in this set if you

0:12:13.200,0:12:16.399
received a hundred dollars for your

0:12:15.120,0:12:20.880
birthday

0:12:16.399,0:12:23.760
what would you do with the money so

0:12:20.880,0:12:24.720
are you is there any limitations you

0:12:23.760,0:12:26.000
have a hundred dollars what do you want

0:12:24.720,0:12:30.639
to do with it

0:12:26.000,0:12:34.160
um i guess i might just

0:12:30.639,0:12:36.959
spend it on some sims packs possibly

0:12:34.160,0:12:38.480
fair enough sims being the video game

0:12:36.959,0:12:42.399
that you play on the computer

0:12:38.480,0:12:45.279
yep okay question 10

0:12:42.399,0:12:47.440
if you had to start a non-profit a

0:12:45.279,0:12:53.839
charity organization

0:12:47.440,0:12:56.399
what cause would you support

0:12:53.839,0:12:56.399
let’s see

0:12:57.360,0:13:01.600
i think i might want to do one for

0:13:01.839,0:13:05.519
possibly physically or mentally disabled

0:13:04.480,0:13:08.560
children

0:13:05.519,0:13:11.040
i know that their parents have a lot um

0:13:08.560,0:13:13.279
that they need to do for them and some

0:13:11.040,0:13:16.079
of them might still be in the hospital

0:13:13.279,0:13:18.240
others might just get bullied and i want

0:13:16.079,0:13:20.560
them to know that there’s hope out there

0:13:18.240,0:13:22.000
and although there’s plenty of good

0:13:20.560,0:13:23.839
causes to support

0:13:22.000,0:13:26.639
i feel like i’d want to support them

0:13:23.839,0:13:30.000
okay well i think that’s a noble cause

0:13:26.639,0:13:34.560
thank you so going back to the concept

0:13:30.000,0:13:35.760
of never having to worry about money so

0:13:34.560,0:13:38.399
you don’t doesn’t matter how much you

0:13:35.760,0:13:40.160
get paid at whatever job you do

0:13:38.399,0:13:42.320
what job would you want to do under

0:13:40.160,0:13:44.800
those circumstances

0:13:42.320,0:13:46.160
probably do something related to

0:13:44.800,0:13:49.040
creativity

0:13:46.160,0:13:50.560
um i’ve said like my dream dot job would

0:13:49.040,0:13:52.880
be something to do with

0:13:50.560,0:13:53.600
a creative aspect whether it be being an

0:13:52.880,0:13:56.720
artist an

0:13:53.600,0:13:57.920
author a movie maker director anything

0:13:56.720,0:14:00.639
like that

0:13:57.920,0:14:02.000
um i don’t exactly know which job i

0:14:00.639,0:14:04.639
would pick

0:14:02.000,0:14:05.519
um but i definitely want to um do

0:14:04.639,0:14:08.720
something

0:14:05.519,0:14:12.320
with um creativity that allows me to be

0:14:08.720,0:14:12.320
have some creative liberty okay

0:14:12.880,0:14:19.920
how might being wealthy affect

0:14:16.320,0:14:23.120
excuse me affect a person’s ambition

0:14:19.920,0:14:24.480
okay so we can affect it positively or

0:14:23.120,0:14:27.920
negatively

0:14:24.480,0:14:30.959
um so for the positive um

0:14:27.920,0:14:34.399
it gives them more freedom to

0:14:30.959,0:14:36.320
take on any ambitions that they have um

0:14:34.399,0:14:38.160
and if they feel really passionately

0:14:36.320,0:14:40.720
about a certain ambition

0:14:38.160,0:14:42.000
then they can go for it and the money

0:14:40.720,0:14:45.360
helps them

0:14:42.000,0:14:47.920
but then again on the negative side

0:14:45.360,0:14:48.720
if they have so much money they can

0:14:47.920,0:14:51.120
shoot for

0:14:48.720,0:14:52.320
ambitions that aren’t necessarily

0:14:51.120,0:14:55.360
positive

0:14:52.320,0:14:59.040
or just just in a way

0:14:55.360,0:15:02.399
trying to be mean spirited okay

0:14:59.040,0:15:04.880
um either way um i think money can

0:15:02.399,0:15:08.480
definitely affect a pers

0:15:04.880,0:15:11.519
a person’s ambitions i’ll buy that

0:15:08.480,0:15:13.040
if you found 20 just walking down the

0:15:11.519,0:15:15.120
street

0:15:13.040,0:15:16.800
would you try to find who lost it or

0:15:15.120,0:15:20.480
would you just keep it

0:15:16.800,0:15:22.720
well so i’d probably go and

0:15:20.480,0:15:23.920
find who lost it because like if you if

0:15:22.720,0:15:27.199
you find a set

0:15:23.920,0:15:28.720
like a penny on the ground i’m

0:15:27.199,0:15:31.120
pretty sure most people aren’t really

0:15:28.720,0:15:31.600
gonna need it so it’s fine to pick that

0:15:31.120,0:15:33.759
up

0:15:31.600,0:15:35.199
but twenty dollars is a lot and someone

0:15:33.759,0:15:37.519
could need that for

0:15:35.199,0:15:38.959
whether it be loans or for food or

0:15:37.519,0:15:42.160
anything like that so

0:15:38.959,0:15:42.560
i definitely try and um uh return it to

0:15:42.160,0:15:45.759
them

0:15:42.560,0:15:49.040
okay that’s the honest answer

0:15:45.759,0:15:51.839
how do you define success okay

0:15:49.040,0:15:53.279
so this might be another long answer

0:15:51.839,0:15:56.480
awesome just be proud

0:15:53.279,0:15:58.880
so i think success can

0:15:56.480,0:16:00.240
is based on personal preference again

0:15:58.880,0:16:03.199
like

0:16:00.240,0:16:04.880
success can either be like getting into

0:16:03.199,0:16:08.000
a good relationship

0:16:04.880,0:16:09.839
or well basically success

0:16:08.000,0:16:11.440
like if you have a certain goal in mind

0:16:09.839,0:16:13.120
and you reach that goal

0:16:11.440,0:16:15.680
and you feel as though you’ve succeeded

0:16:13.120,0:16:16.399
in the goal that’s what success means to

0:16:15.680,0:16:19.440
you

0:16:16.399,0:16:22.639
whether it be a goal to get newer

0:16:19.440,0:16:24.959
to a relationship have children

0:16:22.639,0:16:26.959
get a pet have a better relationship

0:16:24.959,0:16:29.440
with someone you’re not normally with

0:16:26.959,0:16:30.399
get a good paying job get a job that you

0:16:29.440,0:16:32.800
enjoy

0:16:30.399,0:16:33.680
get famous at a hobby that you really

0:16:32.800,0:16:36.639
enjoy

0:16:33.680,0:16:39.040
anything like that um it’s basically

0:16:36.639,0:16:42.160
just based on personal preference and

0:16:39.040,0:16:44.639
no matter what you define as um success

0:16:42.160,0:16:45.839
it’s just basically reaching a goal that

0:16:44.639,0:16:48.839
you’ve wanted to reach

0:16:45.839,0:16:50.639
for however long i think that’s a great

0:16:48.839,0:16:52.560
example

0:16:50.639,0:16:53.759
what is something that you can’t afford

0:16:52.560,0:16:56.959
now but

0:16:53.759,0:16:58.800
want to have in the future probably my

0:16:56.959,0:17:00.480
own place not that i’m not

0:16:58.800,0:17:02.160
now that i’m not complaining about this

0:17:00.480,0:17:04.480
house with you guys

0:17:02.160,0:17:05.600
it’s just i’m probably not going to stay

0:17:04.480,0:17:08.880
stay here

0:17:05.600,0:17:10.720
my entire life like it’s

0:17:08.880,0:17:13.280
a very nice house i’m not going to lie

0:17:10.720,0:17:15.039
it’s just i’m probably not going to be

0:17:13.280,0:17:15.919
in here my entire life i’m not going to

0:17:15.039,0:17:18.959
be like

0:17:15.919,0:17:20.319
the kid who never moves out even when

0:17:18.959,0:17:22.480
they’re old enough

0:17:20.319,0:17:24.000
and don’t and doesn’t have a job just

0:17:22.480,0:17:25.600
sits on the couch all day

0:17:24.000,0:17:27.120
so i’m basically not trying to be a

0:17:25.600,0:17:29.360
burden to you guys so

0:17:27.120,0:17:30.480
you are our little bird sweetheart i

0:17:29.360,0:17:34.320
know

0:17:30.480,0:17:35.360
okay good answer uh question 16 in the

0:17:34.320,0:17:37.600
series

0:17:35.360,0:17:39.120
what is something you consider to be a

0:17:37.600,0:17:42.799
smart purchase you made

0:17:39.120,0:17:42.799
at any point in your life

0:17:44.720,0:17:48.000
this is another long one with a side

0:17:46.559,0:17:51.520
like that no

0:17:48.000,0:17:54.640
um i genuinely don’t know

0:17:51.520,0:17:55.360
like most of my most the time i just

0:17:54.640,0:17:58.960
spend

0:17:55.360,0:18:00.640
money on like small toys or stuff for

0:17:58.960,0:18:02.960
games i really never

0:18:00.640,0:18:04.080
spend money on anything that i’d

0:18:02.960,0:18:06.480
consider like

0:18:04.080,0:18:07.760
worthwhile that i needed that i feel

0:18:06.480,0:18:09.360
desperate about

0:18:07.760,0:18:11.440
something you’ve never made a smart

0:18:09.360,0:18:14.320
purchase i mean

0:18:11.440,0:18:16.480
i think a lot about my purchases and i

0:18:14.320,0:18:18.880
enjoy the toys that i get

0:18:16.480,0:18:20.640
it’s just that i’ve never really made i

0:18:18.880,0:18:22.559
don’t think i’ve really made a purchase

0:18:20.640,0:18:24.880
that has like blown

0:18:22.559,0:18:26.080
like that has changed my entire life so

0:18:24.880,0:18:28.400
okay

0:18:26.080,0:18:30.720
well in that case what is one thing you

0:18:28.400,0:18:34.799
regret spending money on

0:18:30.720,0:18:36.960
uh probably just like

0:18:34.799,0:18:38.480
small toys that i only played with for

0:18:36.960,0:18:41.840
like um

0:18:38.480,0:18:43.840
a month and then i kind of got tired of

0:18:41.840,0:18:46.320
that’s probably one of the things that

0:18:43.840,0:18:49.840
um i kind of regret spending

0:18:46.320,0:18:50.559
okay i can see that would you tend to

0:18:49.840,0:18:53.760
spend

0:18:50.559,0:18:56.080
less now and save for a bigger purchase

0:18:53.760,0:18:57.280
later or buy smaller things now when you

0:18:56.080,0:19:00.799
have money

0:18:57.280,0:19:04.799
well i don’t really spend

0:19:00.799,0:19:05.360
much money anyway so i’d probably save

0:19:04.799,0:19:07.919
it for

0:19:05.360,0:19:08.799
something bigger than i would that would

0:19:07.919,0:19:10.640
probably

0:19:08.799,0:19:11.840
do something to change my life so i

0:19:10.640,0:19:15.039
would actually get

0:19:11.840,0:19:18.640
like that smart purchase so

0:19:15.039,0:19:19.840
okay yeah that makes sense well that was

0:19:18.640,0:19:22.320
all we had in

0:19:19.840,0:19:23.120
our money and profession segment we’re

0:20:39.200,0:20:42.880
welcome back we are doing another one of

0:20:41.840,0:20:46.080
our q a

0:20:42.880,0:20:49.039
series today talking money family

0:20:46.080,0:20:50.159
and education and we’re going to talk

0:20:49.039,0:20:53.200
about

0:20:50.159,0:20:56.080
family and friends now we’ve got 20

0:20:53.200,0:20:59.840
questions in this set

0:20:56.080,0:21:02.799
uh question number one if you could set

0:20:59.840,0:21:05.039
one rule for the entire family to have

0:21:02.799,0:21:07.840
to follow what would it be

0:21:05.039,0:21:08.799
um it’d be respect each other’s

0:21:07.840,0:21:10.320
boundaries

0:21:08.799,0:21:13.200
but spend time with each other when you

0:21:10.320,0:21:13.840
can okay i like that that works do we do

0:21:13.200,0:21:16.240
that now

0:21:13.840,0:21:18.559
i mean yeah you guys expect my respect

0:21:16.240,0:21:20.720
my boundaries and i try to respect yours

0:21:18.559,0:21:22.080
um and i definitely enjoy the time i

0:21:20.720,0:21:25.440
spend with you guys so

0:21:22.080,0:21:27.440
awesome what makes our family

0:21:25.440,0:21:28.960
amazing is our family amazing because i

0:21:27.440,0:21:31.840
think it is do you think it is

0:21:28.960,0:21:34.480
yes what makes it amazing okay let me

0:21:31.840,0:21:37.760
just go over the checklist please

0:21:34.480,0:21:39.600
okay the first thing is that um

0:21:37.760,0:21:41.200
we all respect each other’s boundaries

0:21:39.600,0:21:43.039
but enjoy time with each other which is

0:21:41.200,0:21:46.000
probably why i put the rule down

0:21:43.039,0:21:47.120
because we just generally follow that

0:21:46.000,0:21:50.159
rule anyway

0:21:47.120,0:21:51.039
um so and i really enjoy the private

0:21:50.159,0:21:52.960
time i have

0:21:51.039,0:21:54.799
but i also enjoy hanging out with you

0:21:52.960,0:21:57.760
guys when i can

0:21:54.799,0:21:58.000
um another thing is that you guys are

0:21:57.760,0:22:01.039
very

0:21:58.000,0:22:02.640
supportive in everything i do even if um

0:22:01.039,0:22:04.159
what i do is not perfect

0:22:02.640,0:22:05.919
you guys try to encourage me with

0:22:04.159,0:22:08.559
constructive criticism to fix

0:22:05.919,0:22:09.120
anything that i might need help on and

0:22:08.559,0:22:11.919
i’m

0:22:09.120,0:22:13.679
very grateful for that okay another

0:22:11.919,0:22:16.240
thing is that you make me laugh

0:22:13.679,0:22:16.720
occasionally sometimes i get a good joke

0:22:16.240,0:22:19.120
out right

0:22:16.720,0:22:20.960
yeah you guys make me laugh and i once

0:22:19.120,0:22:22.080
again i enjoy the time i spend with you

0:22:20.960,0:22:24.080
guys so

0:22:22.080,0:22:26.000
okay and i’m glad i can have a family

0:22:24.080,0:22:29.280
that i can that makes me laugh

0:22:26.000,0:22:32.720
all right well what do you think makes

0:22:29.280,0:22:35.840
a family close um

0:22:32.720,0:22:39.039
i’d say um

0:22:35.840,0:22:39.440
dinner conversations no it doesn’t it

0:22:39.039,0:22:42.080
has

0:22:39.440,0:22:42.720
it can be about anything but i think

0:22:42.080,0:22:45.120
that

0:22:42.720,0:22:46.880
whenever like everyone’s normally

0:22:45.120,0:22:49.039
separate most the day they’re at school

0:22:46.880,0:22:51.520
or work or doing their own thing

0:22:49.039,0:22:52.640
and then at lunch or dinner whenever

0:22:51.520,0:22:54.960
they’re there

0:22:52.640,0:22:56.159
um that’s when the family can really get

0:22:54.960,0:22:58.960
together and

0:22:56.159,0:23:00.480
talk and i think that like a family that

0:22:58.960,0:23:02.320
doesn’t really talk at dinner

0:23:00.480,0:23:04.320
they’re not very close they’re not gonna

0:23:02.320,0:23:04.799
get close unless they do something about

0:23:04.320,0:23:06.960
it

0:23:04.799,0:23:08.880
and i think like those dinner chats are

0:23:06.960,0:23:10.559
always something enjoyable

0:23:08.880,0:23:11.919
as long as you’re not just talking about

0:23:10.559,0:23:15.200
school work

0:23:11.919,0:23:15.760
or the weather or any other boring topic

0:23:15.200,0:23:18.000
that

0:23:15.760,0:23:20.080
no one would really find interesting and

0:23:18.000,0:23:20.960
you and i definitely think that dinner

0:23:20.080,0:23:22.640
time is

0:23:20.960,0:23:24.240
a time where you can get to know the

0:23:22.640,0:23:26.240
rest of your family better

0:23:24.240,0:23:27.520
how they react to certain situations and

0:23:26.240,0:23:31.280
some of their hobbies

0:23:27.520,0:23:32.000
okay good answer what is the most

0:23:31.280,0:23:33.440
important

0:23:32.000,0:23:35.200
thing that you’ve learned from your

0:23:33.440,0:23:38.799
parents

0:23:35.200,0:23:40.799
okay um i’d say probably

0:23:38.799,0:23:43.120
um respect others who deserve the

0:23:40.799,0:23:44.960
respect and don’t treat others

0:23:43.120,0:23:46.159
and don’t treat others based on their

0:23:44.960,0:23:49.279
own appearances

0:23:46.159,0:23:51.360
base them off their actions and

0:23:49.279,0:23:52.400
um i definitely try to follow that every

0:23:51.360,0:23:54.400
single day

0:23:52.400,0:23:56.080
i respect everyone who deserves the

0:23:54.400,0:23:57.120
respect and people who don’t deserve the

0:23:56.080,0:23:59.200
respect

0:23:57.120,0:24:00.480
i tend to try at least giving them a

0:23:59.200,0:24:03.679
little bit of respect

0:24:00.480,0:24:04.480
but you know i still need to keep it low

0:24:03.679,0:24:07.919
because

0:24:04.480,0:24:09.919
they don’t necessarily deserve it um

0:24:07.919,0:24:11.919
and i don’t judge people based on their

0:24:09.919,0:24:13.919
appearances and i just people based on

0:24:11.919,0:24:18.159
their actions because

0:24:13.919,0:24:21.039
um someone who looks different

0:24:18.159,0:24:23.440
could merely be the most amazing person

0:24:21.039,0:24:26.080
and someone who looks completely normal

0:24:23.440,0:24:27.200
could um end up destroying the entire

0:24:26.080,0:24:30.320
world

0:24:27.200,0:24:33.760
what is normal anyway right yeah

0:24:30.320,0:24:36.559
okay so we’ve we’ve determined

0:24:33.760,0:24:37.919
what you think makes a family close what

0:24:36.559,0:24:40.400
do you think makes a

0:24:37.919,0:24:41.360
happy family good relationships with

0:24:40.400,0:24:43.600
each other

0:24:41.360,0:24:45.840
having like good relationships with each

0:24:43.600,0:24:47.039
other can make it enjoyable to be around

0:24:45.840,0:24:48.960
your family

0:24:47.039,0:24:50.640
and having close interactions with each

0:24:48.960,0:24:53.200
other like i said before

0:24:50.640,0:24:55.039
like if you if you don’t have those

0:24:53.200,0:24:55.760
close interactions with your family and

0:24:55.039,0:24:57.440
you’re all just

0:24:55.760,0:24:58.880
separate and anytime you are together

0:24:57.440,0:25:00.559
you don’t really talk

0:24:58.880,0:25:02.559
you’re not really gonna have that

0:25:00.559,0:25:02.960
happy-go-lucky family and everyone will

0:25:02.559,0:25:05.200
just

0:25:02.960,0:25:07.200
go to someone else who is they’re close

0:25:05.200,0:25:07.760
to instead of residing on their own

0:25:07.200,0:25:10.960
family

0:25:07.760,0:25:11.760
i’ll buy that that makes sense what do

0:25:10.960,0:25:14.159
you think

0:25:11.760,0:25:15.360
is the most important qualities of a

0:25:14.159,0:25:19.360
good parent

0:25:15.360,0:25:20.799
well i’d say one is accepting because

0:25:19.360,0:25:23.520
parents should accept their kids no

0:25:20.799,0:25:25.840
matter what no matter their gender

0:25:23.520,0:25:27.600
how they choose to act how they want to

0:25:25.840,0:25:30.400
act their hobbies

0:25:27.600,0:25:31.679
who they are attracted to and anything

0:25:30.400,0:25:35.600
like that

0:25:31.679,0:25:36.320
even if like your child’s interests

0:25:35.600,0:25:38.960
don’t match

0:25:36.320,0:25:40.799
your standards you should still accept

0:25:38.960,0:25:41.679
them no matter what because they’re your

0:25:40.799,0:25:43.440
children

0:25:41.679,0:25:44.880
and it’s your job to raise them and if

0:25:43.440,0:25:46.720
you don’t raise them they’re gonna have

0:25:44.880,0:25:48.559
to find someone else and

0:25:46.720,0:25:51.600
finding someone else isn’t as easy as

0:25:48.559,0:25:53.120
you think okay

0:25:51.600,0:25:55.520
well all right apparently i’m getting an

0:25:53.120,0:25:58.960
email too yeah

0:25:55.520,0:26:02.640
uh question seven what do you like best

0:25:58.960,0:26:02.640
about your brother

0:26:04.159,0:26:11.919
i like how he’s

0:26:07.760,0:26:13.760
kind of similar in video game i like how

0:26:11.919,0:26:15.840
he’s interested in video games because

0:26:13.760,0:26:17.200
that’s something we both can relate to

0:26:15.840,0:26:19.039
although we’re completely different

0:26:17.200,0:26:21.679
people we still agree that we like

0:26:19.039,0:26:23.279
playing video games and even spending

0:26:21.679,0:26:24.320
time with you and playing the video

0:26:23.279,0:26:26.159
games so

0:26:24.320,0:26:27.760
that’s one thing that we can at least

0:26:26.159,0:26:29.200
agree on although we have completely

0:26:27.760,0:26:32.799
different perspectives

0:26:29.200,0:26:34.400
cool i like that so how many of your

0:26:32.799,0:26:37.520
ancestors

0:26:34.400,0:26:38.559
can you name and what do you know about

0:26:37.520,0:26:39.919
them let me

0:26:38.559,0:26:41.840
let me just let me rephrase that

0:26:39.919,0:26:42.159
question how many of your ancestors do

0:26:41.840,0:26:44.880
you

0:26:42.159,0:26:45.840
remember and what you know about them

0:26:44.880,0:26:49.039
well

0:26:45.840,0:26:51.600
i know grammy on mom on mommy’s side

0:26:49.039,0:26:52.559
um she was around for the first seven

0:26:51.600,0:26:55.520
years of my life

0:26:52.559,0:26:56.880
and um i was really close with her and i

0:26:55.520,0:27:00.159
enjoyed her company

0:26:56.880,0:27:03.200
i remember her um

0:27:00.159,0:27:06.320
then there was uncle mike um

0:27:03.200,0:27:09.679
who is your oldest brother correct

0:27:06.320,0:27:11.120
um and i remember we’d and i remember he

0:27:09.679,0:27:15.679
enjoyed spending time with us

0:27:11.120,0:27:18.960
and i’d see him a few times um

0:27:15.679,0:27:22.799
and then um my mom

0:27:18.960,0:27:26.000
your um mother um i remember her but

0:27:22.799,0:27:28.320
she i was only a baby back then so

0:27:26.000,0:27:30.159
um yeah unfortunately mommy and i didn’t

0:27:28.320,0:27:32.640
bring a lot to the table as far as

0:27:30.159,0:27:34.640
family goes uh

0:27:32.640,0:27:36.240
most of my family had passed away and

0:27:34.640,0:27:38.000
most of

0:27:36.240,0:27:39.600
most of her family well she didn’t have

0:27:38.000,0:27:42.559
a very big family

0:27:39.600,0:27:44.080
immediate family either so unfortunately

0:27:42.559,0:27:45.840
we did not have a lot

0:27:44.080,0:27:47.440
to to bring to the table as far as

0:27:45.840,0:27:50.559
living relatives for you

0:27:47.440,0:27:51.840
yeah um but mommy is very good at doing

0:27:50.559,0:27:54.240
the family tree stuff

0:27:51.840,0:27:56.240
so i think we’re getting to a point

0:27:54.240,0:27:58.159
where it might be worthwhile to uh

0:27:56.240,0:28:01.760
go back and review all the information

0:27:58.159,0:28:04.960
she has because she goes back pretty far

0:28:01.760,0:28:07.520
so question nine how are you like each

0:28:04.960,0:28:10.640
of your parents give me just one example

0:28:07.520,0:28:11.440
of a similarity between me and between

0:28:10.640,0:28:15.120
mommy

0:28:11.440,0:28:17.760
okay um with you i think i

0:28:15.120,0:28:19.200
sort of exhibit your behavior towards

0:28:17.760,0:28:21.520
situations

0:28:19.200,0:28:23.279
that’s a good thing or a bad thing well

0:28:21.520,0:28:26.880
i’m still working on the problem

0:28:23.279,0:28:29.039
solving um but i definitely enjoy

0:28:26.880,0:28:30.159
tech like you do although you know

0:28:29.039,0:28:32.880
sometimes we both

0:28:30.159,0:28:34.880
do scream in inanimate objects okay fair

0:28:32.880,0:28:37.919
enough how about mommy

0:28:34.880,0:28:42.000
um i’d say that

0:28:37.919,0:28:43.360
i have let’s see

0:28:42.000,0:28:45.520
which of the qualities do i have of

0:28:43.360,0:28:48.399
mommy

0:28:45.520,0:28:51.039
i’d say probably the either the hard

0:28:48.399,0:28:55.120
working side or the tolerance

0:28:51.039,0:28:58.080
okay so we’ll go back to those examples

0:28:55.120,0:29:00.399
from a few weeks ago that works

0:28:58.080,0:29:02.000
uh do you think your friends talk to

0:29:00.399,0:29:04.960
their family like

0:29:02.000,0:29:06.240
you talk to your family well none of

0:29:04.960,0:29:09.200
them do a podcast

0:29:06.240,0:29:11.279
so probably not too many people do not

0:29:09.200,0:29:14.080
too many people do a podcast with their

0:29:11.279,0:29:15.039
children so um i wouldn’t say they

0:29:14.080,0:29:18.080
talked to them

0:29:15.039,0:29:18.480
that much but i but visiting the houses

0:29:18.080,0:29:20.799
went

0:29:18.480,0:29:23.200
their houses when i could i’d say that

0:29:20.799,0:29:24.960
they still had some close relationships

0:29:23.200,0:29:28.799
with their parents

0:29:24.960,0:29:30.799
um and i definitely say and

0:29:28.799,0:29:32.159
not saying sibling relationships but

0:29:30.799,0:29:35.279
parent-wise yes

0:29:32.159,0:29:36.080
okay fair enough which of your friends

0:29:35.279,0:29:40.880
do you think

0:29:36.080,0:29:43.790
i would like or do like the most and why

0:29:40.880,0:29:46.900
um let’s see um

0:29:43.790,0:29:46.900
[Music]

0:29:48.000,0:29:53.279
i think that um

0:29:51.039,0:29:54.399
you like mariah i’m assuming that you

0:29:53.279,0:29:57.200
like mariah

0:29:54.399,0:29:59.440
um because she’s probably the longest

0:29:57.200,0:30:02.640
lasting friend that i’ve had so far

0:29:59.440,0:30:03.200
um and um we enjoy spending time with

0:30:02.640,0:30:06.320
each other

0:30:03.200,0:30:09.360
and our personalities kind of mesh and

0:30:06.320,0:30:10.720
i think you enjoy her okay i do i like

0:30:09.360,0:30:12.960
mariah

0:30:10.720,0:30:14.880
alright we actually had uh on the show

0:30:12.960,0:30:18.159
for our friends podcast

0:30:14.880,0:30:20.480
a while back so uh

0:30:18.159,0:30:22.960
how would you describe uh mommy and

0:30:20.480,0:30:26.159
daddy’s parenting style

0:30:22.960,0:30:29.600
i’d say that you guys are

0:30:26.159,0:30:32.320
um strict when you need to be

0:30:29.600,0:30:34.159
like you’re not overly strict like

0:30:32.320,0:30:37.440
giving me specific

0:30:34.159,0:30:39.840
um things to do every single day

0:30:37.440,0:30:41.120
and you’re not criticizing me when i do

0:30:39.840,0:30:43.279
anything wrong

0:30:41.120,0:30:45.600
um but you’re strict when you need to be

0:30:43.279,0:30:48.840
like if i ever did something

0:30:45.600,0:30:50.799
wrong you made sure to be strict on me

0:30:48.840,0:30:53.200
um and

0:30:50.799,0:30:54.480
um i’d also say you’re understand you

0:30:53.200,0:30:57.760
have a very

0:30:54.480,0:31:00.559
open um parenting style where

0:30:57.760,0:31:02.880
you let me talk about anything i need to

0:31:00.559,0:31:05.919
talk about and if i ever made a mistake

0:31:02.880,0:31:10.240
we always talk about it so firm but

0:31:05.919,0:31:12.799
fair yeah okay that’s what i shoot for

0:31:10.240,0:31:15.760
where would be an awesome place to go

0:31:12.799,0:31:19.039
for family vacation

0:31:15.760,0:31:22.000
hmm let’s see don’t say disney i’m not

0:31:19.039,0:31:22.000
gonna say disney

0:31:24.000,0:31:28.480
i’d really like to go like to go to

0:31:25.679,0:31:30.399
california go back to california again

0:31:28.480,0:31:31.600
yeah i really wasn’t there i don’t

0:31:30.399,0:31:33.840
remember much

0:31:31.600,0:31:35.279
um besides you know going to disneyland

0:31:33.840,0:31:39.760
mommy falling

0:31:35.279,0:31:41.200
oh yeah that was that was fun

0:31:39.760,0:31:43.120
i don’t remember much but going to

0:31:41.200,0:31:45.039
disneyland oh that’s a terrible memory

0:31:43.120,0:31:46.880
right

0:31:45.039,0:31:48.559
yeah that was like the only time i’d

0:31:46.880,0:31:49.200
gone to california but it would be nice

0:31:48.559,0:31:52.000
to go

0:31:49.200,0:31:53.679
somewhere other than disney because you

0:31:52.000,0:31:55.760
were there in california before and you

0:31:53.679,0:31:58.159
saw a bunch of other sites that

0:31:55.760,0:31:59.519
we never i never really got to see when

0:31:58.159,0:32:01.120
we went there the one time

0:31:59.519,0:32:03.120
so i definitely would want to go back

0:32:01.120,0:32:04.960
there okay

0:32:03.120,0:32:06.480
i would like to go back as well in fact

0:32:04.960,0:32:08.320
mommy and i were

0:32:06.480,0:32:09.519
trying to plan a vacation to go back

0:32:08.320,0:32:12.480
there before

0:32:09.519,0:32:14.080
the whole plague hit so once things

0:32:12.480,0:32:15.919
settle down for that we’ll see what we

0:32:14.080,0:32:19.919
can do

0:32:15.919,0:32:22.880
uh question 14 what is one thing you

0:32:19.919,0:32:24.320
don’t know about me that you’d like to

0:32:22.880,0:32:28.559
know

0:32:24.320,0:32:31.679
uh let’s see um

0:32:28.559,0:32:35.120
i think i’d want to know more about

0:32:31.679,0:32:38.080
um your joy of writing i learned

0:32:35.120,0:32:38.480
recently that you and joy actually make

0:32:38.080,0:32:41.679
you

0:32:38.480,0:32:44.880
actually make stories you know based on

0:32:41.679,0:32:45.840
more um science fiction futuristic kind

0:32:44.880,0:32:48.000
of stuff

0:32:45.840,0:32:48.960
but i want to know how you got into

0:32:48.000,0:32:51.120
writing because

0:32:48.960,0:32:53.039
i kind of got my writing from you so it

0:32:51.120,0:32:54.159
would be kind of cool to see how you got

0:32:53.039,0:32:55.840
into writing

0:32:54.159,0:33:00.080
i actually got in the writing back when

0:32:55.840,0:33:00.080
i was in second or third grade

0:33:00.240,0:33:04.080
i had a friend of mine his name was brad

0:33:03.120,0:33:07.519
and

0:33:04.080,0:33:10.960
we were best friends in grade school

0:33:07.519,0:33:13.120
and we both would write stories

0:33:10.960,0:33:14.399
and at lunch time because we weren’t in

0:33:13.120,0:33:17.519
the same class

0:33:14.399,0:33:18.480
in second grade at lunchtime we’d sit

0:33:17.519,0:33:20.960
together and we’d

0:33:18.480,0:33:23.679
go over each other’s stories and read

0:33:20.960,0:33:26.320
them back and forth to each other

0:33:23.679,0:33:28.320
and it wasn’t a competition because we

0:33:26.320,0:33:30.080
would write cooperatively so he’d write

0:33:28.320,0:33:32.320
a chapter and then i’d write a chapter

0:33:30.080,0:33:34.320
and then he’d write a chapter and it was

0:33:32.320,0:33:36.159
i thought it was really neat having two

0:33:34.320,0:33:39.039
people tell a story from different

0:33:36.159,0:33:41.039
perspectives in the same story

0:33:39.039,0:33:43.600
and at that point in time i just kind of

0:33:41.039,0:33:47.679
got hooked on storytelling

0:33:43.600,0:33:52.640
so that was where my origins were nice

0:33:47.679,0:33:54.480
uh where are we at we are at question 15

0:33:52.640,0:33:56.640
what would you wish we might do

0:33:54.480,0:33:59.519
differently as parents

0:33:56.640,0:34:00.880
what do you mean by that what do we do

0:33:59.519,0:34:02.240
that you don’t like that you wish we

0:34:00.880,0:34:04.399
would do different

0:34:02.240,0:34:06.559
uh or what don’t we do that you wish we

0:34:04.399,0:34:09.120
would do ah

0:34:06.559,0:34:09.120
let’s see

0:34:16.879,0:34:20.320
nothing were that perfect i don’t i mean

0:34:19.679,0:34:21.839
i

0:34:20.320,0:34:23.760
i mean you guys definitely have your

0:34:21.839,0:34:27.359
flaws and um

0:34:23.760,0:34:31.359
some types of thank you very much yeah

0:34:27.359,0:34:34.639
um like you can sometimes annoy me when

0:34:31.359,0:34:35.919
like um you mess around poking a stick

0:34:34.639,0:34:38.960
in my cage

0:34:35.919,0:34:41.040
so so less stick poking then no

0:34:38.960,0:34:43.119
not really i actually enjoy it not that

0:34:41.040,0:34:43.919
i’m saying i’ll do anything differently

0:34:43.119,0:34:47.200
but i’m just

0:34:43.919,0:34:49.040
you know asking actually no i i

0:34:47.200,0:34:50.560
i’ll actually like your flaws and i

0:34:49.040,0:34:52.879
think it builds your character

0:34:50.560,0:34:53.919
so so then you don’t want me to change

0:34:52.879,0:34:55.919
it all nope

0:34:53.919,0:34:58.240
all right perfect because i’m not very

0:34:55.919,0:35:01.440
busy you’re fine just the way you are

0:34:58.240,0:35:04.880
awesome question 16.

0:35:01.440,0:35:07.680
do you think our family has enough money

0:35:04.880,0:35:08.880
right now yes okay i think we’re fine

0:35:07.680,0:35:12.160
off with money

0:35:08.880,0:35:12.480
good that is a question that i had dealt

0:35:12.160,0:35:15.520
with

0:35:12.480,0:35:16.000
as a kid myself all the time because did

0:35:15.520,0:35:20.400
not come

0:35:16.000,0:35:23.119
from a particularly uh affluent family

0:35:20.400,0:35:24.079
my mom didn’t work a full-time job my

0:35:23.119,0:35:25.599
dad did but

0:35:24.079,0:35:27.359
he was a common labor so he didn’t make

0:35:25.599,0:35:29.119
a lot of money

0:35:27.359,0:35:30.720
so i would go with my mom grocery

0:35:29.119,0:35:33.599
shopping

0:35:30.720,0:35:36.400
and she would stop she would load the

0:35:33.599,0:35:38.160
card up with everything that she needed

0:35:36.400,0:35:40.320
and then put the essential stuff up

0:35:38.160,0:35:42.160
first and she would periodically ask for

0:35:40.320,0:35:44.720
subtotals of what how much everything

0:35:42.160,0:35:45.839
was so far

0:35:44.720,0:35:47.680
and there were times that she would

0:35:45.839,0:35:49.760
reach a limit where she didn’t have any

0:35:47.680,0:35:52.160
more money to spend

0:35:49.760,0:35:54.320
and then it became juggling okay here’s

0:35:52.160,0:35:56.400
the absolute essentials and here’s the

0:35:54.320,0:35:59.440
one or two things that

0:35:56.400,0:36:00.800
you know we as her children would like

0:35:59.440,0:36:03.839
to have

0:36:00.800,0:36:05.520
um so my mom was very selective and

0:36:03.839,0:36:07.680
careful in how she spent the money for

0:36:05.520,0:36:10.720
groceries

0:36:07.680,0:36:13.680
question 17 do you ever

0:36:10.720,0:36:16.320
feel jealous about the family of any of

0:36:13.680,0:36:16.320
your friends

0:36:16.480,0:36:20.800
not really i’m glad with what family i

0:36:19.359,0:36:22.640
have now and i don’t really think i

0:36:20.800,0:36:25.440
could get much better than this

0:36:22.640,0:36:26.079
okay well all right well that’s a vote

0:36:25.440,0:36:27.680
of confidence

0:36:26.079,0:36:29.280
there yeah and i’m not saying my friends

0:36:27.680,0:36:30.880
have bad families it’s just i’m

0:36:29.280,0:36:31.280
perfectly fine with the family i have

0:36:30.880,0:36:32.640
now

0:36:31.280,0:36:34.320
and i wouldn’t really have it any other

0:36:32.640,0:36:38.000
way well do we

0:36:34.320,0:36:40.400
treat you fairly that’s question 18

0:36:38.000,0:36:41.760
definitely whenever i do something good

0:36:40.400,0:36:44.400
you always make sure

0:36:41.760,0:36:46.400
to reward me either with a pat on my

0:36:44.400,0:36:48.560
back or just with a small reward

0:36:46.400,0:36:49.839
and when i do make mistakes you make

0:36:48.560,0:36:51.920
sure to

0:36:49.839,0:36:53.359
help me understand the mistake i made

0:36:51.920,0:36:57.040
and help me um

0:36:53.359,0:36:59.280
learn from it so speaking specifically

0:36:57.040,0:37:00.960
about the house now not the family

0:36:59.280,0:37:02.960
because we already know how i irritate

0:37:00.960,0:37:07.760
you what thing about

0:37:02.960,0:37:11.920
our house irritates you the most um

0:37:07.760,0:37:14.320
the windows i’d say the windows because

0:37:11.920,0:37:15.839
stink bugs get in especially during

0:37:14.320,0:37:19.200
winter and trust me

0:37:15.839,0:37:20.880
it’s annoying okay i’ll buy that

0:37:19.200,0:37:22.640
i hate those bugs well and that’s

0:37:20.880,0:37:25.359
because we have a couple of window air

0:37:22.640,0:37:28.240
conditioners that cause that

0:37:25.359,0:37:29.119
and the last question for our family and

0:37:28.240,0:37:31.599
friends segment

0:37:29.119,0:37:32.160
question 20 what do you think is the

0:37:31.599,0:37:35.920
best

0:37:32.160,0:37:38.160
number of children for a family to have

0:37:35.920,0:37:40.240
okay depends on a few things

0:37:38.160,0:37:42.240
of course it does because nothing’s ever

0:37:40.240,0:37:45.359
simple not really no

0:37:42.240,0:37:47.040
so it can depend on

0:37:45.359,0:37:48.800
the amount of money the family has

0:37:47.040,0:37:50.640
because not a lot of families can afford

0:37:48.800,0:37:52.560
to have a bunch of children

0:37:50.640,0:37:54.400
and it also depends on the ideas of the

0:37:52.560,0:37:54.880
parents if they want to go through all

0:37:54.400,0:37:56.880
that

0:37:54.880,0:37:58.400
if they want to adopt children and go

0:37:56.880,0:38:01.520
through all of that

0:37:58.400,0:38:03.040
or if and it just depends on if they

0:38:01.520,0:38:05.280
want all those children

0:38:03.040,0:38:06.400
so i wouldn’t say that there’s a perfect

0:38:05.280,0:38:08.400
amount of children

0:38:06.400,0:38:10.240
it’s once again based on personal

0:38:08.400,0:38:10.880
preference all right then let me flip

0:38:10.240,0:38:12.640
the question

0:38:10.880,0:38:14.880
say how many children do you think you

0:38:12.640,0:38:17.200
would like to have at some point in time

0:38:14.880,0:38:18.400
i’d like to have at least one um don’t

0:38:17.200,0:38:20.240
know if i’d get more

0:38:18.400,0:38:22.079
but i’d want to have at least one

0:38:20.240,0:38:25.119
because i want to

0:38:22.079,0:38:27.839
kind of get some parenting skills and

0:38:25.119,0:38:29.040
at least raise someone who might not

0:38:27.839,0:38:30.960
have been raised

0:38:29.040,0:38:32.160
um correctly because i kind of want to

0:38:30.960,0:38:33.680
adopt a child

0:38:32.160,0:38:35.440
don’t necessarily want to go through

0:38:33.680,0:38:37.280
everything um

0:38:35.440,0:38:38.560
everything else but i want to adopt a

0:38:37.280,0:38:40.240
child and

0:38:38.560,0:38:41.680
let them and be the parent that they

0:38:40.240,0:38:44.800
never really got to have

0:38:41.680,0:38:46.240
okay i’ll buy that that was all we had

0:38:44.800,0:38:46.640
for this segment we’ll take a quick

0:38:46.240,0:38:48.560

welcome back we are talking a q a series

0:40:04.319,0:40:08.560
today

0:40:05.280,0:40:10.319
money family and education

0:40:08.560,0:40:13.599
uh we’ve already talked about money and

0:40:10.319,0:40:15.520
family we put those subjects to rest

0:40:13.599,0:40:16.640
now we’re going to talk about education

0:40:15.520,0:40:20.560
alrighty

0:40:16.640,0:40:22.800
so in your vast experience of 13 years

0:40:20.560,0:40:23.839
what have you learned in life that you

0:40:22.800,0:40:27.760
feel will be

0:40:23.839,0:40:30.880
most useful um the phrase

0:40:27.760,0:40:33.119
don’t judge a book by its cover okay

0:40:30.880,0:40:34.560
because no one should really judge

0:40:33.119,0:40:38.720
people based on their appearance

0:40:34.560,0:40:40.000
although everyone everyone does it at

0:40:38.720,0:40:41.520
some point

0:40:40.000,0:40:43.760
i knew when i was younger before i

0:40:41.520,0:40:47.040
learned the phrase i mean

0:40:43.760,0:40:49.359
like people look scary sometimes and

0:40:47.040,0:40:52.079
look at me i always look scary but i’m

0:40:49.359,0:40:54.960
really not that scary right yeah like

0:40:52.079,0:40:56.880
like i said before someone could look

0:40:54.960,0:40:59.920
completely different and as

0:40:56.880,0:41:01.280
though they like sit in alleyways but

0:40:59.920,0:41:03.280
they turn out to be the

0:41:01.280,0:41:04.560
funniest person you’ve ever met and

0:41:03.280,0:41:08.079
someone could look

0:41:04.560,0:41:11.920
extremely extra extremely charming

0:41:08.079,0:41:13.920
and seemed and um seemed to be normal

0:41:11.920,0:41:16.319
but they could have but they could have

0:41:13.920,0:41:20.240
plans to take over the entire world

0:41:16.319,0:41:20.960
so okay yeah very ambitious individual

0:41:20.240,0:41:24.880
that is

0:41:20.960,0:41:27.520
yep um so having

0:41:24.880,0:41:30.079
spent some time in middle school already

0:41:27.520,0:41:32.079
and taking your lumps in middle school

0:41:30.079,0:41:34.160
what advice would you give to younger

0:41:32.079,0:41:35.119
kids who are about to go to middle

0:41:34.160,0:41:38.160
school

0:41:35.119,0:41:40.160
i’d say it’s not as bad as you think um

0:41:38.160,0:41:41.119
i definitely had my worries in sixth

0:41:40.160,0:41:43.440
grade when

0:41:41.119,0:41:45.280
i was going when i was before i

0:41:43.440,0:41:47.119
transferred into the middle school

0:41:45.280,0:41:50.160
because it sounded really confusing

0:41:47.119,0:41:53.280
switching for every single class

0:41:50.160,0:41:55.920
the specials were confusing and

0:41:53.280,0:41:57.520
um lockers and changing for gym sounded

0:41:55.920,0:42:00.800
very confusing

0:41:57.520,0:42:03.599
and it turned out that seventh grade was

0:42:00.800,0:42:06.480
way better than sixth grade ever was

0:42:03.599,0:42:08.160
and like it felt as though a weight was

0:42:06.480,0:42:10.800
lifted off my shoulders

0:42:08.160,0:42:12.319
it wasn’t as bad as i thought and i

0:42:10.800,0:42:12.880
actually thoroughly enjoyed middle

0:42:12.319,0:42:16.400
school

0:42:12.880,0:42:19.680
okay i like that answer that works

0:42:16.400,0:42:20.240
so from a philosophical standpoint do

0:42:19.680,0:42:23.359
you think

0:42:20.240,0:42:24.319
it’s better to have one great skill that

0:42:23.359,0:42:27.920
you’re an a plus

0:42:24.319,0:42:32.000
at or many skills that you’re a c

0:42:27.920,0:42:34.000
at um i’d say many skills that you’re

0:42:32.000,0:42:36.640
see at because

0:42:34.000,0:42:38.079
if you just have one major skill that

0:42:36.640,0:42:40.400
you’re amazing at

0:42:38.079,0:42:42.160
you’re probably not going to go for

0:42:40.400,0:42:44.160
other ones because you already feel

0:42:42.160,0:42:46.000
accomplished with this one skill

0:42:44.160,0:42:48.000
and i think it’s important to branch out

0:42:46.000,0:42:49.280
for other skills and even if you’re not

0:42:48.000,0:42:51.839
very good at the skills

0:42:49.280,0:42:54.079
at least you’ll know more okay that

0:42:51.839,0:42:56.640
makes sense

0:42:54.079,0:42:57.760
what are three things you’d teach that

0:42:56.640,0:43:00.800
you think would help

0:42:57.760,0:43:04.720
make school more useful

0:43:00.800,0:43:04.720
um let’s see

0:43:05.280,0:43:08.400
i think one thing i would teach to help

0:43:07.760,0:43:12.880
make it

0:43:08.400,0:43:16.000
slightly more useful is

0:43:12.880,0:43:16.000
um let’s see

0:43:18.640,0:43:21.839
um how to handle money i guess okay

0:43:21.119,0:43:23.680
because

0:43:21.839,0:43:25.680
having to handle money is something that

0:43:23.680,0:43:26.000
you’re gonna use for the entire rest of

0:43:25.680,0:43:28.160
your

0:43:26.000,0:43:29.680
life and i think it would be important

0:43:28.160,0:43:32.720
for students to like

0:43:29.680,0:43:33.680
learn how they can handle money and so

0:43:32.720,0:43:36.480
that they’re not like

0:43:33.680,0:43:37.520
spending like the wazoo and anything

0:43:36.480,0:43:39.839
like that

0:43:37.520,0:43:41.040
and they’re like responsible with um

0:43:39.839,0:43:46.560
spending their money

0:43:41.040,0:43:54.160
okay um another thing i teach

0:43:46.560,0:43:57.280
uh let’s see would be

0:43:54.160,0:43:57.280
i guess somewhat

0:43:59.520,0:44:04.560
well i want something related to jobs

0:44:03.680,0:44:07.200
and how to find

0:44:04.560,0:44:09.119
jobs because one question like every

0:44:07.200,0:44:11.119
single child has asked is like what do

0:44:09.119,0:44:15.200
you want to do when you grow up

0:44:11.119,0:44:17.119
and many and many change their answers

0:44:15.200,0:44:18.800
i mean at this point i don’t even know

0:44:17.119,0:44:20.240
like at one point i wanted to be a

0:44:18.800,0:44:21.359
magician one point i wanted to be a

0:44:20.240,0:44:24.720
veterinarian

0:44:21.359,0:44:27.920
and like i think that

0:44:24.720,0:44:29.760
schools should teach like for specific

0:44:27.920,0:44:31.440
jobs the risks and

0:44:29.760,0:44:33.599
requirements that you need to get

0:44:31.440,0:44:35.520
because kids just

0:44:33.599,0:44:36.960
don’t really think of that when they’re

0:44:35.520,0:44:39.440
picking a job like

0:44:36.960,0:44:41.200
becoming a veterinarian you take it

0:44:39.440,0:44:43.440
takes a very long time

0:44:41.200,0:44:44.960
and you need to go into multiple schools

0:44:43.440,0:44:47.280
to be a veterinarian

0:44:44.960,0:44:49.200
anything like high class like that you

0:44:47.280,0:44:51.440
need lots of training for and i think

0:44:49.200,0:44:54.000
like the kids should understand that so

0:44:51.440,0:44:55.920
like a job orientation type thing of oh

0:44:54.000,0:44:57.760
you want to be a doctor here’s

0:44:55.920,0:44:59.280
you know there’s eight additional years

0:44:57.760,0:45:01.280
of school for this and there’s this

0:44:59.280,0:45:04.000
certification and stuff like that

0:45:01.280,0:45:04.880
yeah and okay and even if the kid

0:45:04.000,0:45:06.560
doesn’t want to

0:45:04.880,0:45:08.560
have that kind of job anymore you can

0:45:06.560,0:45:09.359
still offer some jobs that they might do

0:45:08.560,0:45:12.560
based on

0:45:09.359,0:45:14.480
um the in the um

0:45:12.560,0:45:16.079
activities that they’ve done and the

0:45:14.480,0:45:19.760
interest that they seem to have

0:45:16.079,0:45:21.200
okay i think that answers the question

0:45:19.760,0:45:22.960
of all the things you’re learning in

0:45:21.200,0:45:24.000
school what do you think will be the

0:45:22.960,0:45:34.960
most useful

0:45:24.000,0:45:37.920
as an adult um i’d say for one thing

0:45:34.960,0:45:37.920
it might be

0:45:38.640,0:45:41.760
math because math is pretty much to use

0:45:41.440,0:45:45.040
in

0:45:41.760,0:45:47.359
every single aspect of is used

0:45:45.040,0:45:48.319
in almost every single job we actually

0:45:47.359,0:45:50.960
had an assignment

0:45:48.319,0:45:53.440
um when i was in seventh grade where you

0:45:50.960,0:45:55.599
pick 10 careers that you can do math in

0:45:53.440,0:45:57.599
and explain how you use the math

0:45:55.599,0:45:58.800
and there are plenty of different jobs

0:45:57.599,0:46:00.640
that use math

0:45:58.800,0:46:03.200
even the most simple jobs like being a

0:46:00.640,0:46:05.200
cashier you need to use math so that you

0:46:03.200,0:46:08.640
know how much money to give the people

0:46:05.200,0:46:11.920
and how to calculate how much

0:46:08.640,0:46:13.440
an item costs so okay i’ll buy that that

0:46:11.920,0:46:14.720
makes sense i think math is very

0:46:13.440,0:46:16.400
important math is hard but

0:46:14.720,0:46:18.240
math is very important although there

0:46:16.400,0:46:20.319
are some stuff that you might not

0:46:18.240,0:46:21.359
need for every single job i think it’s

0:46:20.319,0:46:24.640
still important

0:46:21.359,0:46:29.839
okay what does your school not have

0:46:24.640,0:46:29.839
right now that you wish that it did um

0:46:31.599,0:46:35.359
uh let’s see i always wish my school had

0:46:34.400,0:46:37.920
a swimming pool

0:46:35.359,0:46:38.800
oh my god for like a swim team or

0:46:37.920,0:46:42.720
something like that

0:46:38.800,0:46:42.720
yeah that actually wouldn’t seem too bad

0:46:43.119,0:46:48.960
okay a pool okay a pool

0:46:46.480,0:46:51.200
what book do you think every teenager

0:46:48.960,0:46:53.520
should read

0:46:51.200,0:46:53.520
um

0:46:54.400,0:46:57.839
the dictionary

0:46:58.640,0:47:05.200
really why not um

0:47:02.160,0:47:08.000
i’d say the book wonder that i read um

0:47:05.200,0:47:10.000
that i had read for summer reading when

0:47:08.000,0:47:13.839
i went to sixth grade that’s the title

0:47:10.000,0:47:16.480
wonder i think so yeah okay that works

0:47:13.839,0:47:16.960
it’s basically a book of acceptance so

0:47:16.480,0:47:19.440
beautiful

0:47:16.960,0:47:21.359
it was a good thing for it beautiful

0:47:19.440,0:47:22.800
what do you think is the easiest class

0:47:21.359,0:47:24.480
that you have and what do you think is

0:47:22.800,0:47:25.200
the most difficult class you have right

0:47:24.480,0:47:28.160
now

0:47:25.200,0:47:28.800
um the easiest class that i have right

0:47:28.160,0:47:31.680
now

0:47:28.800,0:47:32.160
is computer skills it’s enjoyable like i

0:47:31.680,0:47:35.280
said

0:47:32.160,0:47:37.599
i really enjoy working with tech

0:47:35.280,0:47:39.359
and computer skills and just skills in

0:47:37.599,0:47:40.240
general since they’re both technology

0:47:39.359,0:47:42.800
based have been

0:47:40.240,0:47:43.280
really fun for me so i enjoyed both of

0:47:42.800,0:47:45.200
them

0:47:43.280,0:47:47.599
and the class i think is the most

0:47:45.200,0:47:51.280
difficult right now

0:47:47.599,0:47:54.000
um probably math

0:47:51.280,0:47:56.000
like we said before math is pretty yeah

0:47:54.000,0:47:59.359
math is hard

0:47:56.000,0:48:00.559
okay i like that what do you think is

0:47:59.359,0:48:03.599
the most important

0:48:00.559,0:48:07.520
important part of school

0:48:03.599,0:48:08.800
um i’d say the most important part is

0:48:07.520,0:48:11.520
letting the students

0:48:08.800,0:48:13.040
express their interest like with the

0:48:11.520,0:48:14.400
different clubs because

0:48:13.040,0:48:16.400
although it is important to know all the

0:48:14.400,0:48:18.079
educational stuff it’s also important to

0:48:16.400,0:48:21.040
help students figure out

0:48:18.079,0:48:21.680
what interests them and um things that

0:48:21.040,0:48:23.359
can help

0:48:21.680,0:48:25.839
and how they can have their interests

0:48:23.359,0:48:28.079
work later on in the future

0:48:25.839,0:48:29.520
so and expanding on kids interest is

0:48:28.079,0:48:31.839
definitely something that i think

0:48:29.520,0:48:33.520
is important for schools and one of the

0:48:31.839,0:48:35.359
more important things although you know

0:48:33.520,0:48:38.000
education is still nice

0:48:35.359,0:48:40.319
the extracurricular stuff is also good

0:48:38.000,0:48:42.079
to have as well

0:48:40.319,0:48:44.000
which classes do you feel the most

0:48:42.079,0:48:48.280
motivated in

0:48:44.000,0:48:52.240
um the most motivated

0:48:48.280,0:48:55.440
probably anything that has to do with

0:48:52.240,0:48:58.640
having my creative um aspects tune in

0:48:55.440,0:49:00.160
one of them would be ela because ela you

0:48:58.640,0:49:02.480
get to write

0:49:00.160,0:49:03.599
you get like some creative liberty to

0:49:02.480,0:49:05.920
write and i like

0:49:03.599,0:49:07.520
and then and i enjoy writing one of the

0:49:05.920,0:49:10.720
things with our journal is that

0:49:07.520,0:49:13.760
you can have some creative prompts that

0:49:10.720,0:49:17.440
um i really enjoy writing about

0:49:13.760,0:49:19.839
um and i like the topics that we do so

0:49:17.440,0:49:21.520
um i’d say ela is probably the one i’m

0:49:19.839,0:49:25.200
most inspired in right now

0:49:21.520,0:49:28.240
nice what do you think you should do

0:49:25.200,0:49:31.839
more of in school

0:49:28.240,0:49:34.559
um what i think i should do more of

0:49:31.839,0:49:36.079
do you think you need to study more do

0:49:34.559,0:49:39.200
you need to do more athletics

0:49:36.079,0:49:41.040
do you need to do more

0:49:39.200,0:49:42.720
extracurricular activity what do you

0:49:41.040,0:49:44.920
think is something that you do

0:49:42.720,0:49:47.200
but you don’t do enough of probably

0:49:44.920,0:49:48.319
extracurricular stuff because i had a

0:49:47.200,0:49:51.920
problem

0:49:48.319,0:49:53.839
um before um in seventh grade where i

0:49:51.920,0:49:55.200
didn’t join any of the clubs

0:49:53.839,0:49:57.440
and you kind of need that

0:49:55.200,0:49:58.400
extracurricular stuff to get into a good

0:49:57.440,0:50:00.640
college

0:49:58.400,0:50:01.520
um and although i could join one of

0:50:00.640,0:50:03.520
those clubs

0:50:01.520,0:50:05.040
i was a little too shy and it was still

0:50:03.520,0:50:06.960
new to me and i didn’t want to put

0:50:05.040,0:50:09.040
any extra stress although you know

0:50:06.960,0:50:11.800
they’re supposed to be enjoyable

0:50:09.040,0:50:13.359
um so yeah i think i want to join more

0:50:11.800,0:50:15.680
extracurricular stuff

0:50:13.359,0:50:17.760
when i get the chance to okay i think

0:50:15.680,0:50:20.559
that’s a good idea

0:50:17.760,0:50:20.880
if you were a teacher what class would

0:50:20.559,0:50:23.839
you

0:50:20.880,0:50:24.480
teach art i’d probably want to teach art

0:50:23.839,0:50:28.240
because

0:50:24.480,0:50:31.200
then i can like i just enjoy

0:50:28.240,0:50:32.800
art i enjoy drawing um and art’s

0:50:31.200,0:50:34.640
probably a big thing that gets my

0:50:32.800,0:50:38.000
creative juices flowing

0:50:34.640,0:50:41.200
so i’d i’d prefer being an art teacher

0:50:38.000,0:50:43.440
because i think it’d be fun okay i could

0:50:41.200,0:50:46.720
certainly see you doing that

0:50:43.440,0:50:48.800
so let’s let’s look beyond our

0:50:46.720,0:50:51.040
current school grade and let’s talk a

0:50:48.800,0:50:52.800
little bit about college

0:50:51.040,0:50:54.559
do you want to go to college when you

0:50:52.800,0:50:57.839
graduate high school

0:50:54.559,0:51:00.240
well i mean it’d be nice to go to

0:50:57.839,0:51:02.400
college and i’d hope to go to college

0:51:00.240,0:51:03.359
but i have no real plans for college at

0:51:02.400,0:51:05.839
this point

0:51:03.359,0:51:08.079
like i’m not sure what i’d major in what

0:51:05.839,0:51:10.240
extra stuff i’d do

0:51:08.079,0:51:11.839
i’m like although i do want to go to

0:51:10.240,0:51:15.359
college i really have

0:51:11.839,0:51:16.960
no set plan right now okay and college

0:51:15.359,0:51:18.720
isn’t for everybody i mean there’s some

0:51:16.960,0:51:20.960
people who wouldn’t do well there who

0:51:18.720,0:51:22.800
or you know you might not be able to

0:51:20.960,0:51:25.839
afford college you might not

0:51:22.800,0:51:27.680
want to go to college there are other

0:51:25.839,0:51:29.760
career opportunities out there if you

0:51:27.680,0:51:31.839
don’t go to college so

0:51:29.760,0:51:33.440
i don’t want you to feel pressured to go

0:51:31.839,0:51:36.000
to college mommy and daddy would love to

0:51:33.440,0:51:39.440
see you go to college and go on to a

0:51:36.000,0:51:41.599
career that you you love and enjoy

0:51:39.440,0:51:43.599
but that option is always there it’s not

0:51:41.599,0:51:45.440
a requirement

0:51:43.599,0:51:47.200
if you did go to college and this is the

0:51:45.440,0:51:49.119
last question that we have today

0:51:47.200,0:51:51.119
if you did go to college would you want

0:51:49.119,0:51:52.640
to go away to college

0:51:51.119,0:51:55.119
or would you want to go to a local

0:51:52.640,0:51:55.119
college

0:51:56.640,0:51:59.760
okay that one is a little difficult

0:51:58.880,0:52:01.359
because

0:51:59.760,0:52:02.800
on the one hand i don’t want to have to

0:52:01.359,0:52:04.079
stay with you guys and seem to be a

0:52:02.800,0:52:05.040
burden even though i’m your little

0:52:04.079,0:52:06.960
burden which

0:52:05.040,0:52:09.520
actually now doesn’t seem too bad of an

0:52:06.960,0:52:11.280
option but i also wouldn’t want to like

0:52:09.520,0:52:13.440
leave you guys and not really see you

0:52:11.280,0:52:15.839
guys as much so

0:52:13.440,0:52:17.760
now i think i’d want to go to a local

0:52:15.839,0:52:20.800
college so that i’d at least

0:52:17.760,0:52:24.079
be able to stay with you guys

0:52:20.800,0:52:26.000
okay i think that would be uh quite

0:52:24.079,0:52:27.440
acceptable i don’t think mommy and daddy

0:52:26.000,0:52:30.880
are quite ready to kick you out of the

0:52:27.440,0:52:32.400
house just yet so that’s a good thing

0:52:30.880,0:52:34.079
let’s take a quick break we’ll come back

0:52:32.400,0:52:36.960
we’ll do closing

0:52:34.079,0:52:37.520
uh thoughts and shout outs and uh finish

0:52:36.960,0:52:40.240
up the

0:52:37.520,0:52:45.440
the business of the podcast

0:52:40.240,0:52:49.680
[Music]

0:52:45.440,0:52:52.480
go for your closing remarks okay so

0:52:49.680,0:52:54.079
we talked a lot about money and family

0:52:52.480,0:52:56.000
and education

0:52:54.079,0:52:58.319
i just want to say that it’s still
