    A Few Things...

    After watching Oliver Twist I wanted to be a pick pocket. I thought that was the coolest thing that someone could take another's watch right off their wrist without the second one knowing. Granted I didn't really consider the stealing part. An astronaut. A teacher of young kids...

    I Still Do!

    Though I have grown up, I can't stop hoping that one day I might be able to find the time to get my way. It's not impossible but requires a lot of sacrifices, and I am not ready for that yet.
