The Real World

A conversation with Seniors:
—————
S: We fixin’ to graduate N.
N: I know.
S: You ready to be out in the real world?
N: Yeah.
S: I’m not, I’m scared.
Mr. C: What are you worried about?
S: Cause I ain’t know how to do nothin’. I don’t know how to get a job. I
only had one interview.
Mr. C: Yeah, but you will learn.
S: Some of these students got put out when they turned 18. They didnt
have shit when they got put out. They just lost.
Mr. C: I know. It is rough.

This is so true, and I am scared for them.
