    Apr 10 2011: A painter, with my own studio under a mansard roof in Paris. And an astronaut, but somebody told me that I needed to be perfectly healthy and have perfect eyesight to become one. I had just started wearing glasses so I put that dream on hold until when in grade two I learned about Christa McAuliffe, the first teacher in a space project. I wanted then to be a teacher. Somehow I thought they could make an exception about my eyesight if I was a really good teacher. Also a mathematician in the Soviet Union because I was afraid of a nuclear war and was told that Russians were always ready to put their best people in bunkers to keep them safe. And of course a chef.
