    What did you want to be when you grew up? Did your wish come true or are you still "growing up"?

    It is true we have great plans for our careers and our future in general and then life happens. As an adult is there something you still want to be when you grow up?

    I wanted to be a writer, but instead became an English teacher and then backed into it. While teaching, I started writing for a newspaper and eventually segued into journalism. I have made my living in communications and journalism for more than twenty-five years now.
    I love my work.

    Clive, you are one of the lucky ones. Being a teacher was the perfect segway to your dream job as a writer.

    I'm hoping that I never grow up. It would be nice to still have some of that childish wonder of the world. It helps against depression, anxiety, and stress.

    I didn't know. Luckily I still don't but somewhere along the way I grew up. Now I want to be a kid again to figure out some new wishes.
