Electronics jokes, heh.
I had a dream once that Carl Sagan told me to never give up. And then I gave up so he poofed me into space and showed me how beautiful everything could be. And he told me to always trust in myself because I am super fantastic and then he gave me a bottle of stardust and said that I’d always be with him if I had that bottle, because we are all star stuff.
The escape of one’s mind is what occurs when one simply looks up and sees the specks of dust sprinkled along the horizon and all over the blackness. Thoughts seem to flow better; dreams seem to materialize in our minds eye. Breathing comes as easy as the beauty beheld by the sight overhead. It’s those simple seconds that everything is put into proper perspective. From there we venture with insight. From there we leave as beholders of the night, hoping one day to touch stardust. Perhaps venturing even to becoming it.
I’ve known I want to be an aerospace engineer, but I never really thought of what I’d do with that degree. Lately; I have lost my hope in NASA and have been thinking quite a lot about the commercial space industry and how far it is going to go (probably in the near future.)
What if I started my own aerospace company?
I would definitely focus on lunar colonization. It has been constantly contemplated and I know it can be done. I have so many ideas on what I could do. I have sketches, diagrams, write ups. But I never realized until now that I could actually make something of this goal.
If lunar colonization doesn’t occur, I’m going to be the woman who makes it happen. Whether I work for NASA or my own aerospace engineering company it will happen.
(Even if it has already happened by the time I have my degree and I’m done with college I will expand the field and make it everything I want it to be.)
