First Words: Numbers

"When I was little, everyone who knew me thought I was odd. I never wanted to play with dolls and I didn't enroll in ballet or gymnastics. Instead my paramount interest was numbers."

  1. Love this. I was a little weird when I was young. Not popular and not too many friends. So I can relate to this quote.
