Stars. I want to see stars.

I just remembered a cute little story.

When I was 8, I was amazed by outerspace. I wanted to grow up and be an astronaut and be the first person to explore the planet Venus.

This is before I knew Venus would kill me with heat and gas.

So, when I was 8, what I wanted the most in life was a telescope. A real telescope. My big brother, Carlos, had taken me to a store that stocked toy telescopes and I asked for one from him.  And he told me "I'll get you one in 100 years."

Not knowing about life spans, I got excited.

I have 83 years left of waiting.  Telescope, here I come!
