Sunday Social Week 8

Sunday Social

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was mainly spent being frustrated at work and that's always a bummer. But the good news is that I have a job interview this week that I am cautiously optimistic about so hopefully will be able to share more soon! Anyways, on to this week's questions... 

1. What is your dream job? 
Since I've decided to get my Master's in Cosmetic Chemistry, I would obviously be something in the cosmetic industry. I'm sure at some point I'll work in a lab formulating cosmetics, but I think I would ultimately like to be a field educator for a cosmetics company and go around to different vendors and show them the new products.

ULTIMATE dream job would be college football commentator. AKA the job Erin Andrews had for ESPN.
2. If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would 
you do with your time?
Play tennis and give kids tennis lessons, volunteer at a children's hospital, focus more on blogging, try out and test all kinds of beauty products!

3. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
When I was little my mom brain washed me into thinking I wanted to be a nurse anesthetist like her. I quickly changed my tune and through most of high school I wanted to be a marine biologist and essentially swim with dolphins (I mean who doesn't?!?). 

4. What piece career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your 
Haha well considering I'm trying to transition into the cosmetic field I am all ears for advice!!

As far as my experience in the medical/pharmacy field, make sure you actually get some experience working in a pharmacy before you 100% decide it's the career you want. After working in a retail pharmacy for 4+ years I can with certainty say that I am glad I didn't go to pharmacy school. Things happen for a reason people!! 

5. Biggest Pet Peeves either in life or in blogging or at work
I answered this question in the post below, but as far as blogging and "social media" pet peeves my biggest thing is non-acknowledgement. I FULLY understand that we are all busy but a simple email or tweet acknowledging a communication isn't that hard. 

BIGGEST work pet peeve is the "do as I say, not as I do" mindset. Too many people I work with have this attitude and it drives me NUTS!!!

6. Biggest Fears
Not finding love, immediate family member dying, spiders and snakes

Hope you enjoyed this week's link-up! Also if you're a fan of all thing monogrammed (and let's face it who isn't) make sure you head over to Chicago Prepster's blog and enter to win 
a monogrammed or Greek letter tee! Just don't do too many entries cuz I wanna win! ;)

Have a great start to the week everyone!! 


  1. Lol I wanted to swim with dolphins when I was a kid too! Too bad I don't even know how to swim that well.

  2. I had a friend that worked in a pharmacy for a few years also and she decided it was not the career for her either. The cosmetic field would be perfect for you!
