I was one of the first settlers of Mars. I have lived here for a year now. One of my biggest problems, initially, was the lack of water. I had to store lot of water whenever it rained. But then it rains rarely on Mars!!! My problem got solved over time as I continued to store water whenever it rained. One of my other problems was lack of oxygen but I solved it as I had brought an oxygen mask with me. My last problem was that of gravity, but I soon figured out I could move faster without gravity.
The best thing that has happened to me on Mars was when I had solved or had tried to live with my problems. My worst time was when I was resolving my problems. This is what my dream journey to the planet Mars has been like.
