|I spent a sizable portion of my childhood planning to grow up to become a professional athlete. I might be wrong, but I thought that's what all kids thought. It seemed so reasonable at the time. "I like baseball and football. I can become Bo Jackson." Apparently my parents didn't discourage this line of thinking. It wasn't until what felt like much later in life that I starting viewing music as a potential career choice. Thankfully this only lasted for part of my teens, until I figured out I was good at math and science and could maybe become an engineer.
Maybe it's the whole "age dilation" thing (a term I literally just coined for the feeling that time passed slower when you were younger), but I seriously planned on being a professional athlete for a long time. #psychology
