Mr. Rogers

In the past few months, I've been thinking a little bit about what I want to do with my life. It's kind of a scary thing to think about, especially because these big decisions about graduate school or careers or whatever have gotten uncomfortably close over the past few months. What am I going to be when I grow up? For a while I thought I might want to become a writer, or a scientist, or a professor, but right now those jobs seem so bland and self-serving to me. I think I want to become someone like Mr. Rogers. No, I probably don't want to host a children's TV program and put on puppet shows, but that guy was so fucking important. Just by broadcasting that positive message all across the country, that there is no one in the world the same as you, that you are strong inside, he accomplished such a great thing.
