Dear Mexican: I'm a third-year university student, a liberal studies and Spanish major. My family, extended and immediate, always likes the chisme. During a family carne asada, we were all talking when one of my tías asked me what I was doing with my life — she and the rest of my aunts seemed like they genuinely wanted to know. But when I told them that I only needed one more year to graduate, it seemed as if I said something wrong. They stared at me, said nothing, and completely ignored what I said.
