"只想做個家庭主婦"

上星期天,跟一個叫Estanfanny的女生談天.

她說, “People get into this University just for fame and fortune. But to be frank, I just want to marry to a good man, and be a good housewife.”

心頭一震…為什麼會那麼吃驚呢?

TEC (Monterrey)是一間私立大學,也是墨國數一數二的名牌大學. 學生每個學期的學費大概是65,000 PESO.而學生一共要讀9個學期, 那是接近60萬PESO. 不少學生要借錢, 就算有scolarship 也要過著沒有人生的生活,study, study.然後是一畢業便work like  a dog to repay the loan.

而EStanfanny 是交全費的學生. 然後,她說,她只想做一個家庭主婦, 一個60萬學歷的主婦.

可是,誰說不可以?
誰說,讀書就一定要幹出點什麼來?
誰又說,家庭主婦可以不問學歷?

她說,她之前想做一個廚師,學費是50,000/SEM. 而父母說, 如果她一定要讀大學, 又一定要讀那麼貴的degree, 那一定是 TEC (Monterrey). 於是她進了TEC (Monterrey), 讀的是communication. 讀了一年後, 覺得不踏實, 覺得好像沒怎麼學習, 也談不上什麼motivation, 而又覺得自己很喜歡maths, 便想轉讀engineering. 不過要defer 1 year. meaning you have to pay more. 跟父母一談之下, 得到了支持, 於是從頭開始.

“It is not that hard to get into the TEC (Monterrey), the hardest part comes into paying the tuition fee.”  She footnoted.

一個烈女? 她只是一個清楚自己想要什麼的一個女生. 在不斷的experiment 中, 背後需要的是一個龐大的財團支持.
