Exhibit #1020

When we were younger, they told us we could be anything we wanted to be. That we could do anything we wanted to do. It's funny how quickly you realise that actually this isn't the case. The time that we have to start thinking realistically comes way too soon, and often the things we want to do are almost impossible to achieve. It becomes too risky to do the things we truly want, so we find ourselves settling for second best. The lives we long for and the people we want to be don't exist outside of the movies, and there's nothing we can do about it. And I don't want that to be my life.
But a lot of the time, it doesn't seem like I have all that much of a choice.
