In Some People Realize Things Later On, Veronica is arguing with her father who doesn’t seem to believe in her ambition to become a schoolteacher.
Veronica: You’re always laughing and making fun of me. Why don’t you take me seriously? (beat) I’m serious right now! I am looking to figure out what school I want to go to and I know we don’t have money to send me but you leave me out on my own with everything. Everything!
I want to be a school teacher, why is that so funny? Why is that so hard to believe? You don’t think I’m smart enough to teach English? It’s always been my best subject and I love to read and write. So, why do you judge me so much?
I know my grades aren’t the greatest. It doesn’t mean I can’t work hard now and make something of myself. It’s not too late.
Some people realize things later on and I’m trying to make a change. It’s taken me time and I think I know what I want to do and you should be there for me.
At least give me the support as my father, I’ll do the rest.
