Sunday Social: Week 8



Sunday Social

Hi Lovelies!
After a brief hiatus, I'm BACK!!!

So straight to the questions:

1) What is your dream job?

I'd have to say probably what I do now. I really enjoy what I do. I get to work with clothes, and learn more about the corporate retail industry and the company I work for is really great. I feel so blessed. Its amazing how my life kind of came full circle back to a career in Fashion Merchandising. I still fantasise about being a writer for a magazine one day though.

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

Well first I would pay off all my student loans!

Then I would travel. A lot. I'd go all over the world and take Boomer with me when she wasn't in school. Ok so basically I would only travel on school breaks. So....while she was in school, I'd buy a house and decorate the shiz out of it. I'd be like Pinterest in real life.

3) When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?

A pop singer. Or a fashion designer.

Can't sew for crap, but I can sing!

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


Well even though I'm a newbie in my field as well...the best piece of advice I could give is don't expect to be a merchant right out of the gate. I see a lot of girls here in Columbus (because several companies are based here), that are graduating and expecting to walk into a merchant. I got my job by accepting a temp position first, and now I'm a merchant coordinator (which is like the assistant to the assistant). I'm cool with it though because I know these are the steps I need to take to get where I want to be. No one starts at the top. Accept for that dude who started Fb.

5) Biggest pet peeves in life/work/blogging?

Life: people who act like they have money and don't, name droppers (because who cares, and a lot of people 'know people' ya know?), selfishness, close minded people

Work: Breaking the copier and walking away, not answering emails, blaming people for something you screwed up,

Blogging: The 'cool kids', twitter beefs (cuz unless you're a rapper its just STUPID, we are grown ups!), never feeling good enough.

6) Biggest fears?

Ever since I watched Poseidon Adventure I've been terrified that I would be stuck in a situation with Boomer where she would have to hold her breath for an extended time....cuz the girl just doesn't get the concept.

Lol breaking the copier and walking away. I've jammed it before at my old work, and I felt so ashamed to tell our front desk lady... but I did! I can see how that'd be a pet peeve though. Fess up!

I've never seen Poseidon Adventures!
Also, name droppers are super obnoxious! I'm totally with you on that one.
Thanks for stopping by my blog with Sunday Social. I hope to see you again, sometime!
XOXO,
