Whenever my peers at school would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up...I found it impossible to settle on an answer. My mind could never quite fathom why I was only allowed to be one thing. I suppose, it wasn't until I was about 13, that I realized I didn't have permanent likes or dislikes...I guess no young person does really. Instead I just lived in a constant state of curiosity. I would question everything - where those answers led me, was neither here nor there, it was the journey to the answers, that would make me feel incredibly alive. The feeling of flicking through books, and dictionaries, and encyclopedia's - having the edge of pages push breeze past my face - of being so close to answer - that was invigorating. I don't think that will ever change for me.
