The Moon is Closer Than You Think

I always wanted to work out in outer space when I was a kid. I saw an astronaut out doing a moon walk when I was a kid and ever since then, I geared my studies towards becoming an astronaut. My parents said that I could do anything that I wanted to and when I told them that I wanted to go and become a space scientist, they did not know what to think of it. I enrolled in a very good A level physics tuition program where I would be able to study from the comfort of my own home and my parents did not think that was a bad idea after I told them that I would be required to take it in order to get into the great space science program where I wanted to go to school. My dad told me that he thought at the very least that I would be able to work in the control room, and I said that was a great goal.

My mom told me that she would support me all the way and she wanted me to live at or close to home so that I would not get involved with a bad crowd at school. I did not always make the best choices in my life and I guess I thought that she may be right and I may need them to supervise me while I was going to school. If things turned bad, then I would be sure to move out of their house and get my own flat, or maybe share a room with a bunch of people in a common house. Things were going to be great for me ahead and I had no idea how lucky I was going to be to get into the program.
