Alex’s Question or Topic
Alex is a junior high school student from North Carolina, north of Raleigh. He aims to take a major in music performance in college, but his mother opposes Alex’s idea and is unwilling to pay his tuition. He’s with Gary’s show to know what are the options for him.
Gary’s Story and Advices
Gary has 3 options for Alex. (1) Sign up for the major his mother wants and on the second day of school, switch to his desired course; (2) Be brave enough to deal with the situation and go into debt or work a side job and pay for the tuition himself; (3) Give the course that his mother wants for him a try and eat sh*t for a year. Those three are the only options, and all of them are good ones.
