I Can't Be Controlled

"Hello besties I am Laila and I am from India. Please like and subscribe to sta."

I was born into a family of accountants, and when I was just 2 years old dad gave me my first calculator.

"This is a calculator Laila, if you want to be a great accountant one day you need to start now."

Of course I had no idea what he was talking about- I was just two. Right after he left the room I threw the calculator like a flying saucer.

And when I was nine, I finally realized what I wanted to be after watching a space channel on Youtube.

"Mom, dad I know what I want to be when I grow up, I want to be an astronaut!"

"Laila have you been watching nonsense again on your mother's phone?"

"Not Nonsense dad, Youtube."

"Enough! From now on you will watch educational programs with us."

I wanted to talk back, but back chatting in my family meant you are grounded for life. I sat down and watched their boring accounting channel, and then all of a sudden, my eyes started burning and everything became blurry.

"Mom, my eyes are burning."

"Stop being dramatic, Laila and watch."
