Caveat: Realistic Expectations

In my Saturday special speaking class, my middle schoolers were answering the question, "What will you be doing in five years?"

One girl described how she was going to be in university, majoring in math and science, and would have a handsome boyfriend. Another girl said she would be starting a business and making a lot of money. The typical broad ambitions of early teenagers.

But then Jenny said, "I will be in university. Probably, I will drink a lot of alcohol."

Keeping it real.
