Even though they do not look appealing, we have tasted them at least once and a lot of people like them . | Learning (:

29: All the advice I get from my parents and my peers are that I finish college and get a degree. They want me to do whatever I prefer, as long as I am able to find a good job when I am done. They want me to be able to provide for myself, and not have to depend on anyone else. They want me to finish and get a good career. | As to what the future could hold for me when I turn 40, I hope to have accomplished one of the careers I stated before.

It' s nice and a calm place to raise kids.That's also what I want in my future I want to have a huge wedding and have kids. (:
