When I was younger and pondered what I wanted to be when I grew up it NEVER entailed crunching numbers. Math was in fact my worst subject. However I deal in numbers ALL day, everyday these days.
As a young child I was prone to daydreaming. During those daydreams that tended to happen during say math or gym, I would fantasize that one day my real family would come for me. My home life as a child was full of adult drama and older sibling bullying.
When I wasn’t contemplating running away, I dreamed that I was adopted. Ha! Ha!
