Growing up, I was always sure I wanted to either become a developer or a writer. Finally, I made my choice. I would be a writer. Then I got a job as a developer by a fluke and that was that. I still write a bit. If I'd ended up being a writer, I'd probably still hack a bit.
Indeed I still hack a bit, in that there's no better way to relax after a hard day's programming than to kick back and do a bit of programming. Right now my favourite off-the-clock project is contributing to CoreFX. That would seem to be the main reason I was made a Microsoft MVP in 2016 and 2017, though I think that I've a few answers on SO helped a bit.
