I know.. theres emo threads all over the place.. but I guess I had to rant. I've been part of the Mac Community for a while now .. lots of reading. not to much posting.. so I felt that there may be people out there that can try to understand my situation. I'm 18, a freshman in college. I grew up away from my father - he's a businessman in an asian country 6500 miles away. He has Lung Cancer - lethal within a handful of years. I'm an intended business major - but my grades are looking like I wont be able to enter the business program. My father needs me to go back and take over I don't want to give up my life in America. I just broke up with my 3 year girlfriend because I can't even concentrate on school work now that my father is in this situation I'm spending alot of my time out of the country managing the business, money, and just spending time with him. I'm just kind of blah right now. sorry for the rant.
