Sunday Social

Sunday Social

To be honest, I do these so sporadically now - I won't even attempt to number them anymore. Read on! Today's Sunday Social questions are all about jobs!

1. What is your dream job?
I think I'm doing it. I am a stay at home mom, with a blog. I volunteer at my local library, advocate for my kids, & help others who are dealing with what I've gone through in life. Sometimes we struggle with bills, and those extra expenses that seem to always pop up, but ... if money was no issue, it'd be amazing.

2. If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?
This might sound really strange, but I'd buy a huge RV, pack it with used books and call it a BookMobile. Aside from loaning out books and taking donations ... I'd take it to disadvantaged schools all over the USA and speak to parents/teachers/children about the importance of the public library system. 

3. What piece of career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?
Start sooner, the sooner the better. It's not easy being the oldest person in a lot of your classes.

4. What would be your ideal "just for fun" job?
I'm a volunteer! I already have my "just for fun" job! (Isn't this kind of like #1?)

5. What was your first "real" job?
Before starting my sophomore year of high school, my parents got me a clerical job. It was a seriously great job, and taught me a lot - but I wasn't so great. I was a bratty kid, and probably pretty lazy and/or distracted.


  1. #3. So when I was in high school I went to an alternative school. Most students were drop outs, those who fell behind, or just couldn't cope in a regular high school. So they varied in age from 16-60. One of the other students turned 62 her 2 days before we graduated. She wanted her children, and her grandchildren to be proud of her for finally getting her high school diploma. She was such a moving woman to know and speak with.

  2. Good for you for volunteering your time. I wish I had more time to volunteer myself.
