One thing I came across when cleaning out another part of my old room was my grade 1 report card. It said things that are still true today (good numeracy skills) and things that I seem to have overcome. For instance, I needed "improvement" in physical education, which in grade 1 consists of running, skipping, hopping and galloping. It's a bit embarrassing to think how challenging that could possibly be and yet have failed to meet the mark.
One thing particularly that stood out, though, was the statement that I was a slow worker who needed to be hurried up. I wonder what implications it has for me today, since the other things seem to be true enough. I am aware that I spend a bit of time daydreaming. I wonder if I was meant to choose a slightly different career path, like an author. Someone self-employed for thinking, not grind work. Based on my first year report card, this is not quite where I was meant to end up. The good news is that there's time to change yet.

PS - Just about everything I write here comes in a fit of daydreaming.
PPS - It seems to be my natural state.
