As a kid I loved to make paper planes from old sheets of paper and day dream about becoming a plane designer. That’s what put me in the way to my actual studies, that drive me crazy some times and make me daydream even more. But I’m glad my childhood dream was encouraged instead of despised as a fantasy by my family. I had so many dreams as a child I don’t remember all of them, I only know some became real, some are in the process, and some where nothing but building castles on the clouds fantasies. And now that I’m slightly more grown up, I try to keep dreams alive, and put some more into my “treasure chest” of fantasies. The point? Dreams keep you going! Don’t stop day dreaming.
