the contest asked kids to answer the question: “What I’d like to do someday” to which matteo answered, “become an astronaut and explore space” awwwww =)

when i was his age, my top 5 “when i grew up i want to be’s” were:
– lawyer (took up political science in college… got my degree that lead to a different path as you can see)
– doctor (did the whole pre-med thing in college, lasted a semester lmao)
– broadway singer (particularly the role of kim from miss saigon hahhhaha – realized i was only good in the shower)
– professional dancer (i sucked at choreography, i blame it on short-term memory)
– artist (i’m great at drawing circles…)
