My dad's currently unemployed, and has been unemployed for awhile. He left his job to take care of me, and then (and now) my brother. My mom gets a pretty sizable paycheck, so we're pretty good. He does have a master's in business though. He worked a bunch of really random jobs- including Chef and actual business dude- but when I was a kid I remember him primarily being an ESL and computer teacher.
I'm currently in school, with a double major of English and Economics. English is my main thing, but Econ is to shut my parents up. I have it going through my thick skull that I can also fit minors in Cognitive Science and Psychology in. It's a snug fit, using up every class possible for my next two years, but theoretically doable. If not, I'm pretty sure I can still pull off two majors and one minor.
As for my own career, I'm seriously considering high school teacher right now. But I have time to wait it out, or at least, that's what I keep telling myself.
