A curious mind

Jesse Bishop

May 20, 2013

Hello, my name is Jesse, but I prefer to be called James, a nick-name given to me by a coworker a few years ago. I'm 22 years old, and I live in a small town in Wyoming, where I feel very cut off from the rest of society. I've lived here my whole life, I've never even seen much of the world outside the Equality State. I am also not very educated, at least not in the American sense. I have never attended college. I started working right out of high school, but despite my background, I have always wanted to know more about the world, the people in it, and whatever lies beyond. I have no more love for space than I do for biology, chemistry, history, the arts. I have always wanted to learn more about everything. That is why, when I found the Planetary Society on a simple facebook link, I was so very excited. I am so very small, in a very small place, and it is likely that none who read this will ever see me. Yet it brings me such joy to know that I can be a part of something bigger. I only wish I could afford more than a mere $30 to support this cause, because each and every one of you are doing something great. You're making a difference. And it means the world to people like me. Thank-you.

You sound a lot like me only much younger. Stay excited about everything! Ad Astra.
