Robotics – Teen Monologue Drama

In this teen monologue, NICK talks to a friend about what he wants to do in his life for career.

NICK: I don’t know man, I kind of been struggling with it, I guess.  Not sure what I want to do, really.  I don’t know how it’s so easy for everybody else it seems.  Like Dan, he just always knew he wanted to be a basketball player, since he was like five.  How the hell do you know something like that so young, right?  I mean, I don’t even remember being five.  Crazy to me.

I don’t even know what college I want to go to and how can I know if I don’t know what it is I want to do.  The stuff I like has nothing to do with anything or it’s like a specialized school and my family doesn’t have the money for me, not with three brothers and three sisters.  (beat)  I love mechanical things…building robotics type stuff.  Wires and connectors.  I’ve always been into that.  You know, you see all my gadgets and stuff but where am I gonna go for that?  I just think it’s a dream man.  I’m probably going to do some community college type thing and get some regular job making decent money somewhere.  I don’t know.  Sounds lame but I don’t think I can take my interest in robotics too seriously because it just doesn’t seem like something that can happen.

Talking to my parents about it is a freaking joke.  Always too busy and they just expect me to go to community college anyway like my older brothers, so, whatever right?  What can I do?

What do you think man, what do you think I should do?
