Sunday Stealing

Interested in participating in Sunday Stealing? Check it out HERE

This was stolen from Fond of Snape 

1. You have been awarded the time off from work and an all-expenses paid week anywhere in the United States. The catch is it must be somewhere you have never been before. I would go with my spouse to Texas or to Providence Rhode Island.

2. Name three of your guilty pleasures. A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. I have to admit, I don't really feel guilty for indulging in "pleasurable" things! Does that make me terrible? Here are some things I enjoy but I don't like to share with anyone ... Biltong, Peanut M and M's from the USA, Pepperridge Farms Mint Milano cookies.

3. The best kind of Girl Scout Cookie is: Samosa

4. What do you value most in other people? Kindness  - I used to say honesty but I think it is easy to be honest and unkind. I have decided that kindness is more valuable.

5. Be honest. Do you sneak some raw cookie dough when you’re baking cookies? Absolutely.

6. Have you ever looked back at your life and realized that something you thought was a bad thing was actually a blessing in disguise? Not specifically and not off the top of my head. When bad things happen I try to see a lesson that I can learn from it, but I don't actually recall ever thinking that something was a blessing in disguise.

7. What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever visited?
I would say Zimbabwe but I didn't really visit there, I was born and raised there, so I would say the most beautiful place I have visited is Singapore.

8. Are you more of a thinker or a feeler? Thinker almost exclusively.

9. Name three things you are thankful for right now.

My sons
My spouse
The fact that I am employed in an unstable economy.

10. Have you ever participated in a three-legged race? II have and I think I will be again this weekend at our camping trip!

11. When you are at an event that plays the National Anthem, do you place your hand over your heart? Sometimes, but not always.
Second meme: This one was stolen from NerdBliss

12. What kind of work do you do? I manage a residence facility at a college.

13. During the course of your lifetime, which job or career has been your favorite or most fulfilling? Working in Youth corrections was my favorite because of the people I worked with and the friendships I made. It was probably the most fulfilling because I believe I actually made a difference in at least one child's life.

14. Do you think it’s necessary in your life to have a day-to-day “career” that is meaningful and service-oriented or do you function better in “just a job” with a steady paycheck? I have to be doing something that serves a purpose or I would get bored.

15. Was there ever a time in your life when you wanted to stay home with your children instead of working, even if it meant less money in the household? I have thought about staying at home with the kids at various times but never seriously considered it for multiple reasons.

16. Tell us your worst boss story. I have had two bosses that I didn't particularly like, but I don't have a worst boss story. Aren't I boring? STOP THE PRESSES! I was just reminded of a terrible supervisor. I was in college and I worked for UPS loading the semi trucks at the end of the day. I was the only girl in my end of the building and I had a supervisor that was a COMPLETE douche canoe. He would put me alone loading two trucks and double up guys who were friends to work together and stuff like that. He passed me over CONSTANTLY for promotions and better positions on the line that I had earned by working hard and seniority. One day I quit on him right at the beginning of a shift and I hope it really messed up his day. Idiot.

17. Have your ever been the boss? I am currently what could be considered a supervisor. I report to a boss who reports to a boss who reports to a president, but I am responsible for a number of staff, a budget, etc.
18. What is your dream occupation? I have always wanted to do two things: 1. Teach at a University, and 2. Run a Bed a Breakfast with my spouse.

I'd love to run a B&B. Whenever we go to one I always think about it.
