Apprentice

You've always dreamed of becoming something big and setting out to fulfill your dream. So, for advice, you go and ask the professional for help. Instead of giving you advice, he decides to instead take you under his wing and you become his apprentice. You are rather clumsy and irresponsible at times, but that's all in the ways of learning to become a master. You learn step-by-step and soon you will become the greatest at your dreams!
