The Birth of a Vocation

As far as I can remember, I've always been interested in Science. So, in a certain way, I've always loved Space. But, at first, it wasn't my favourite subject. I was more interested in pyramids, dinosaurs, human evolution, etc. Then, for my 6th birthday, my mother bought me a book about Space. That book introduced me with the Solar System, the Big Bang, black holes and galaxies. I was so fascinated by all that stuff, I could spent hours alone with that book, trying to understand the universe. During the following years, my love for Space became bigger and stronger, and eventually became more important than my love for dinosaurs. I'm now 20 and space is my greatest obsession. I still have the book. I keep it on my night table. As my brother calls it, it's "the birth of a vocation".
