My Plans for the Future

   I am a school leaver and a problem of choosing a profession is the most urgent for me now. Certainly I have thought this question over for a long time. My parents have their own opinion on it. But as the time of leaving school is closer, my worries become stronger and stronger.
   As the most of my friends and classmates I am going to enter the university or some other higher educational institution. I expect to get a "Certificate of Maturity" with good and excellent marks. But I realize that a lot of young people will bring their "Certificates" with excellent marks to the selection committee of the university. To pass the entrance exams is a serious test for those who want to continue their education.
   As for me I have no aptitude for mastering the technique. But at the same time I don't know if I'll manage to get a good job after graduating from the humanitarian department of the university.
   My parents want me to enter the department in some way connected with management. But I doubt if I have needed personal qualities for this job. To my mind one who chooses this profession must be very communicative. And of course, if you want to gain something in this field, you have to know economics, finance, accountancy a little, psychology, law, management.
   There is one thing which worries me a lot. If I don't get marks necessary for admission to the university or college, they can suggest that I should pay for my education and our family has no money for this.
   There is one more possibility to continue my education. I mean some secondary specialized school. May be I'll choose accountancy. It is very important to every business. A competent accountant is needed everywhere.
   If I don't enter a college or university, I'll try to do my best to learn operate the computer. Certainly I'll go on studying English at some courses. I am sure without this knowledge it is impossible to get a good job. Many people started at the bottom and worked their way up to the top.

Мои планы на будущее

   Я — выпускник, и проблема выбора профессии сейчас самая важная для меня. Конечно, я долго думал над этим вопросом. У моих родителей по этому поводу свое мнение. А так как выпускной все ближе, мои тревоги становятся все сильнее.
   Как и большинство моих друзей, я собираюсь поступать в университет или другое высшее учебное заведение. Я получу аттестат с хорошими оценками. Но я понимаю, как много молодежи принесет свои аттестаты с отличными оценками в приемную комиссию университета. Сдача вступительных экзаменов — серьезное испытание для тех, кто хочет продолжать свое образование.
   У меня нет никаких технических способностей. Но в то же время я не знаю, сумею ли я найти хорошую работу после окончания гуманитарного факультета университета.
   Мои родители хотят, чтобы я поступил на факультет менеджмента. Но я сомневаюсь, что у меня есть необходимые личные качества для этой работы, По моему мнению, тот, кто выбирает эту профессию, должен быть очень коммуникабельным. И конечно, если вы хотите достичь чего-либо в этой области, вы должны разбираться в экономике, финансах, немного в бухгалтерском учете, психологии, праве, менеджменте.
   Есть одна вещь, которая очень волнует меня. Если я не получу достаточно баллов для поступления в университет или институт, меня могут принять только на контракт, а в семье нет таких денег на учебу.
   Есть еще одна возможность получить образование. Я имею в виду техникумы. Возможно, я выберу бухгалтерский учет. Это очень важно в любом бизнесе. Хорошие бухгалтера нужны везде.
   Если я не поступлю в институт или университет, я постараюсь научиться работать с компьютером. Конечно, я продолжу изучение английского языка. Я уверен, что без этих знаний невозможно получить хорошую работу. Многие люди начали с малого и достигли потом вершин.

Imagine that you've just turned 16 and your parents bought you a brand new Mustang. You're cruising on the street at approximately 25 miles per hour.

Finally, you land on your back and come this (gesture 6 in.) close to cracking your skull. What h
