I’ve had to take a few yoga breaths and channel my inner buddha in order to do this, but I’m ready now.. Lots of my friends read this blog. In fact, I’m pretty sure about 50% of all my readers are people I know personally (and one of them is my father…hi Dad), so this post is a little too personal for my liking. But if I’ve learned anything from blogging, it’s that I love who I am and what I’m like and I am going all-out honest today.
I’ve decided to drop out of school to become a rocket scientist.
I know what you’re thinking: don’t you need a degree for that? Well, technically you do, but how hard can it be, really?Why else would people say, “It’s not rocket science!” when something’s really hard? …Or is that when something’s easy? Shoot.
Here’s the deal: I know I said I really wanted to be a writer forever and whatnot, but then I realized that I am so much better than that. Who needs to read, anyway? Rockets touch so much closer to home. Whenever I see a rocket (which is like, every day), I think I wish I knew how that thing worked. So I’ve decided to work for NASA. Cuz I’m that smart.
Science is soooo my thing. How else would I have gotten a C in AP Bio last year? I know, I know, you’re jealous that I got the highest grade in the class. Please don’t cry too hard, I’m sure you can do other stuff better than me. I can’t do push ups to save my life. Maybe you can.
And I’m really good at math, too. 2 + 2 = 4. That’s a really hard equation and it only took me like 20 minutes to figure out. And no, I didn’t use a calculator.
So I’ve decided that school is for fools and NASA is for people like me…plus, I’m pretty sure I’ll get to wear a lab coat. Please don’t miss me too much when I’m off being awesome. Oh, and because I’ll be researching the science of rockets, I will no longer be blogging. Sorry…
