I'm going to continue in this vein just a little longer. When I was growing up,
all I wanted to be was a paleontologist - and a doctor, policeman, minister,
teacher, fireman, etc. I finally chose teacher, and went off to college to
study. I did not know then how my love of paleontology would come back and bite
me in the behind later on...
Now I am a 37-year-old man, who works in a museum call center and dreams of
going back to college to work on a degree (or even just classes!) in
paleontology so that I can be a part of this field.
Hold on to your dreams - do everything in your power to keep them alive. Once
they die, a part of you dies, too. I know, it sounds like a cliche (it is!),
but it is also true.
