I grew up in the country, so when I was 5 I was too busy running around in the forest behind our house and pretending to be a teenage mutant ninja turtle along with the rest of my neighborhood friends! If we were not playing around as characters, we were riding our go-cart or playing some kind of other ball game. We did not have any care beyond that about what we would be when we grew up. Living in the country gave us freedom of imagination that I am not sure growing up in town or in a city would have offered.
