Astronaut

Sometimes I don't know if I was born 100 years early or a hundred years late.

I say this because I am one of those people who just doesn't fit. It's kind of like a round peg in a square hole or something like that. Either way this really came to my attention when my Uncle Rick was talking to me this past weekend. The reason he said this to me was because he always saw me when I was growing up.

An Astronaut.

The coolest job ever in my opinion.

Being an astronaut has probably always been my little underling dream. Whereas all my other dreams were of being a doctor or an artist. When they went away, I could still look at a space launch or something about NASA on Tv and dream. That's what makes me different. This isn't an age for dreamers in most areas of work. Most things have been settled, organized, unionized or just plain banned. It's not like a two hundred years ago when the midwest was still open (gold rush, baby) for settlers heading west for adventure. At that time there were only the dreamers or the greedy . They would go too, and neither should have met.(though they did...). I believe that a hundred years from now there will hopefully be that same expansion, though not on this planet. It will most likely be towards the stars... Because when you see those astronauts, even today, you can tell that they are dreamers living the dream and they know that too. Maybe one day we will all live the dream. Until then, I could always become an astronaut farmer.... (even cooler).

i often have the same feeling...i just want to work on either robots or weapons and strengthen my country, being a rogue hero or un-noticed maverick who's work changed it all. i could say more but that is all for now.

now i continue... I was born with knowledge and vision beyond my time and am considered nuts for it. why must a different mind, one that's a half bubble of center, be thought wrong and require 'fixing'?
