My parents told me like everyone I know, study study study, invented things, do things, be creative, heal, the sky is not the limit...
Do practice art, sport and "stuff" like that is a waste if time.
I don't believe in that but I know a lot if ppl do
Well, not everyone is good at sports, and prioritizing other things certainly is a major factor. Frustrating for those of you who follow sports and want countrymen to cheer for, but difficult to change. I hope you can take pride in your country's other achievements, technological, economical and such.
Do your mother find you very gentile or was this just a hypothetical example?
