    I always wanted to be a secret agent, I remember a period when I was placing "bombs" and other "explosives" drawn on paper by myself in different parts of my hometown. It was real fun, there was nothing more interesting that the real life of a 007.

    I wanted to be a lawyer.  I think this was because I had an aunt who was a successful lawyer and she had what seemed to me to be a great lifestyle that involved lots of travel.  As I was a shy teenager, I changed my mind about that because I didn't want to have to get up in front of people and argue cases.  Ironically, I am now a lecturer in media and communication at a university so I guess I could have coped with being a lawyer after all.

    An artist, a field meteorologist, journalist and creative writer. I became all of these except a field meteorologist, though I continue to watch the skies.

    To be a flight stewardess was a constant dream until college. When it did not materialize, I took my plan B dreams :smile which was to become a businesswoman and writer. Now I write happily and I'm very happy to be in the Hubpage community. It has what inspired me to express myself, gain friends and new ideas. Reaching all these dreams has made me a good organization. Lovely question Gail. Thank you.
