Sunday Social

This is the first time that I am participating in this link up but before I get started with that, do you notice anything different?? 

Kristen over at From Kristen, With Love is the designer behind it's awesomeness! She was awesome to work with, really quick to respond, and had great ideas! I gave her some colors I liked and she ran with it. I definitely recommend her if you are thinking about a new blog design!!

If you are not following Neely over at A Complete Waste of Makeup, you are really missing out!! Not only is she awesome, but she is hosting an amazing giveaway for reaching 2,000 followers! I am linking up with her for Sunday Social which is where she post random questions and you answer them!  Go check her (& her giveaway) out!! 

Here are this weeks questions & my answers:

1) What is your dream job?
Teaching, the one I have now!! Seriously, I have always wanted to be a teacher and the position I have now could not be better! I get to work with great friends all day. Some day, I would like to move into administration, but it will still be in the same field!!

2) If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?
Go crazy!! I always have to be doing something. I don't know if I would stay in teaching (because let's be honest, you don't go into that profession for the $$!) but I would have to     keep myself busy. If I quit teaching, I would travel, volunteer, craft, and really enjoy life to it's fullest!

3) When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I answered this above, but again I wanted to be a teacher. I would play school with my friends, dolls, self, or whoever would play with me. 

4) What piece career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?
Do what you know and do it well! I feel like there are teachers that are always trying to one up the others. We are all professionals, have an opinion, and our own way of teaching. 

5) Biggest Pet Peeves either in life or in blogging or at work?
This could turn into a very long answer but I will try to keep it short:
Life- Slow drivers in the fast lane and being in the right turn lane at a red light but not turning.
Blogging- I don't like blogs that post the same kind of stuff everyday. I like random blogs (like mine) that really help you get to know the person. I also can't stand blogs that seem to try to hard, be yourself!!
Work- Talking bad about the kids when you don't know the whole story, not turning something in when it is due (people don't ask for things for fun), and pointless meetings that waste my time!!

6) Biggest Fears: 
Drowning, hands down! & bugs, don't do bugs!! 

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday! We will be eating, relaxing, and watching the Olympics. 
**Go team USA**
