The Condescension of ‘Just Farming’

Leave a comment

It’s very likely that I’m not going to pass these exams. And I realize that I don’t really have any other skills. And at some point, in a point of melodrama, I was like, you know, if this doesn’t work out, I think I’ll just – maybe I’ll just farm. My mom said, “It is wrong to be so condescending to think that if you don’t have any skills, you can just farm. You know, the thing that requires the least skill is picking up dung to make fertilizer.” […] This then becomes my mantra – “I do not want to pick up dung.”
