Looking for something in particular?

Childhood Dreams

I don't think I've told many people this but when I was younger, I wanted to be an Astronaut. At a young age, I was wild about deep space, the final frontier, all those clich├ęs. I was curious about what was beyond earth and how distant worlds environment would be like. I think i'm an explorer at heart...

When I was told that I needed to be a scientist and be good at math to follow my dream, my heart was shattered and I dropped all hope, quietly, of traveling to space. I still have dreams of floating in the void looking at new worlds...

For those of you who don't know, NASA shut down the manned spacecraft program not too long ago, saying that the time of the man in space is over. When I heard this, the sadness I had when I was told I couldn't be an astronaut returned, knowing that the dream was over.

Think Jetsons, who thought that by our time, we'd be living in space, not to mention the 60s where the "space age" fad or the future was ever preset in at least American culture. We all saw living in space as our future, and now that man is no being catapulted into space, it feels like that idea for the future was all just fiction. And that saddens me.

So in honor of my shattered childhood, I made this:

I hope that the show will go on, and we will all be around to enjoy it.
