I recently came across a book on creativity that talks about Albert Einstein. It mentioned that Einstein constantly pondered puzzles, and that the reasons he made discoveries no one else did was simply because he investigated those puzzles farther than he anyone else. I want to be a scientist, and that’s kind of what I’ve always thought what a scientist is: the person that never stops asking questions, even if they sometimes seem like silly questions.
Speaking of science, today in my seventh grade science class we will be measuring who can run the fastest in my class. The measurement will be taken for a 10-meter segment. The boys chose who they thought the three fastest girls would be, and vice versa. Needless to say I was not picked. But I want to see if I can prove them wrong.
