Sunday Social Link-Up

Sunday Social

I'm participating in Ashley's and Neely's Sunday Social link-up, and guess what? It's my first EVER link-up! How exciting!

1. What is your dream job?

I want to be a career counselor, and my ultimate goal is to have my own business doing just that. I start my post-graduate college program in September ( nervous/excited!)

2. If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?

I'd spend oodles of time with my family, volunteer as a career counsellor part-time, travel, decorate and re-decorate, and generally be completely fabulous all of the time.
Trip to London 2009. If I won the lottery, I'd spend lots of time here.
3. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

The first thing I remember actually really wanting to be was a pilot, and I didn't get that idea until Grade Six. It's the reason I joined Air Cadets, and actually, I did end up getting a private pilot's license. Ultimately, I decided that flying for a career would not be a wise choice because I was always just a little too nervous.

4. What piece career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?

Could this link-up BE any more perfect for me? I work in Human Resources, and I would tell anyone to be sure you are prepared to do your company's bidding when you get into this line of work. It's definitely difficult sometimes to tow the company line when it's against your personal values or opinion to take certain actions. This can include dismissing employees, giving or withholding bonuses/raises, and more.

5. Biggest Pet Peeves either in life or in blogging or at work

My biggest pet peeve in the entire world is one-sided friendship. These are the people who make sure that every interaction is all about them.

More typical pet peeves include people who can't figure out how three- and four-way stop intersections work (the one at the end of my street is particularly bad), and women with under groomed, over groomed, or poorly shaped eyebrows.

6. Biggest Fears

Since becoming a mother, my biggest fear is anything that could tear my family apart. Illness, death, or any other event. And of course the pinnacle of this is if anything were to happen to my Baby Bird.

I hateeeee one-sided friendships. I have a friend who I can call crying and within thirty seconds she makes it about her. I think your dream career is very cool! Everyone needs guidance so that's definitely the right path ;)

Have a wonderful Sunday :)
