“So, How’s School Going?”

Two Christmas cards lying on a bed
Reflecting on another stressful holiday season

“So, how’s school going?”

“What are you studying?”

“And what do you plan to do with that degree?”

The only thing scarier than homemade fruitcake and the song “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Clause” during the holidays is the bombardment of questions from relatives and family friends pertaining to my career during holiday get-togethers. However, I could easily be persuaded that their responses to my answers are even scarier.
