Dear Morning Stack,
Everybody is pressuring me to be something I’m not. My mom wants me to stay in school. My dad wants me to be a doctor, but I want to be a DJ. I’m not interested in chemistry or biology. I don’t care about the nervous system or the limbic system; all I care about is my sound system. I really think I have what it takes to be the next big DJ. I have the determination, the drive and the right equipment — a Macbook PRO.
Why doesn’t anybody support my dreams of being the greatest DJ since Skrillex? I feel like nobody understands me. Sometimes being successful is not the most important thing in the world. Sometimes it’s better to follow your dreams.
I was born to be a DJ; I have the God-given ability to feel the pulse of the crowd. How can I convince my family and friends to support me and believe what I believe: that I’m going to be the greatest DJ of all time?
Thank you for your letter. I regret to inform you that your DJ career is not going to work out. Being a DJ requires absolutely no skill or creativity at all. Let me get this straight — you think you can earn a living in today’s competitive job market by choosing techno and dubstep songs from your computer? It’s one thing to make music or be a radio DJ with a fun personality who chooses songs that people can sing along to in their car. But you do none of those things. Sorry.
Listen to Your Mother
