Last night we had a family get-together at my uncle's house. It was nice to see my family again, althouigh one of my cousins didn't show. Sucker. I don't see why I have to go if he doesn't feel moved to go. Regardless, I always love sitting with my great-Aunt Kay and hearing stories about when she was my age. The sad thing was hearing that my cousins aren't doing well academically. The oldest one just spent a year at a junior college and was accepted into a four-year college (Azuza Pacific, which most of the family had some reservations about) but declined and decided to stay another year and look at other places like Cal Poly. The next one is going to the same junior college. The next two don't know about what will happen next year, and they are seniors in high school. It's kind of scary. There were no options for me when I was their age. College was a must. My parents and classmates were movitated for me. For almost everything these days, it seems you need at least a college degree. I have friends who are still stuck in the junior college system and have been for six years. The girls don't seem to mind much. My mother thinks they might just get married and that's the end of it. God I hope not. Scott still enjoys my family, but we are in such a horrible state that we aren't really much of a family anymore. No one is helping my father and uncle with my grandfather. What's even worse is that two of my uncles won't help with their parents. It all falls upon the third brother, and he's exhausted. Both of the parents have cancer, and he's considered the handiman of the family. But now it's falling back on my other uncles, since when they ask him for help, he tells them to go find someone and pay them for it. Suckers.
