    I guess it's like exploring a city by chance with a map in your pocket, you can always find your way back. Likewise, if you go into intellectual areas and get lost in whatever you find there, but can always get back, you can enjoy the freedom of not following a fixed path.

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
