The Story of Two Mis-Fits

This is freaking high school. It is finals month.
Kids are cramming.
Moms are insisting the importance of cramming.
That is how the game is played this month.

Instead of studying, Adi is mixing Tamil movie dance hits and having me be the tester for his mixing skills with shared headphones.
I start out talking about the importance of grades..but quickly get sucked into the mixing gala and turn the discussion to how he could not only take over the Austin music scence but also gain valuble experience and make some really money if he DJed.

In this world of chasing grades and colleges, we are two mis-fits that don’t belong.

Do you think there is any hope for us?
I don’t see it.

Hopeless son.
Even more hopeless mom.
