  • It is interesting, and i work for an awesome company.  my only complaint is that i am the youngest in the office, and therefore get a lot of b*tch work,, and thats usually really tedious, and not very exciting.  i got to work on a wine bar a few months ago, so that was pretty cool.  it actually opens in about a week.  

    I would actually also love to be a nurse.  I started getting interested in the medical community a few years ago, I would just be worried about the mental toll it would be to work in a hospital.

  • What do you do for a living? Currently unemployed, my last job was working at a doggy day care/boarding facility.

    Do you enjoy your career? I liked my last job, but the schedule and hours just weren't working for me. I graduated in December 09 with a BS in Economics from the University of Oregon, GO DUCKS :) So I'm trying to find something more degree related.

    What did you think you would end up 'being when you grew up'? I wanted to do something like own my own business or do something sports related.

    Is there something you would rather do? I really want to go to school to be an ultrasound tech, but there's no schools in the area for that, so I'm kinda stuck right now. My current degree is getting me nowhere and its really, really frustrating.

    If you had the option, is your dream 'career' to be a 'home engineer' (stay at home mom)? I'd like to do that for awhile, when we first have kids and they're still little, that way I don't have to deal with daycare and all that, but I'd like to go back to work when the kids are older.

    What does your '5 year plan' look like? Well my FI and I want to start having kids next year after we get married, so that and hopefully find a better job or go back to school. I've thought about getting my Master's but I just don't know.

  • Ahhhh! This couldn't have come at a worse time! I just got laid of on Wednesday. :( So I am currently unemployed and looking for a new job like a mad woman! Me and Rob cannot afford for me not to work so my dream job right now is ANYTHING!
    Wedding Countdown Ticker
  • What do you do for a living?
    Currently I am Student Teaching and will graduate in December (The end is near!) and I supplement that with a part time job as a restaurant manager.

    Do you enjoy your career?
    YES! I love teaching! Everyday is different, it has times that are trying, but its so rewarding. I love the things they say and the ideas they have!
    Restaurant manager? Um I can do without :) HA!

    What did you think you would end up 'being when you grew up'?
    I've wanted to be a teacher since 3rd grade :)

    Is there something you would rather do?
    My FI and I really love Dunn Bros Coffee (local chain, I think) and would really like to be an owner/operator of one, but frankly, I couldn't give up teaching for it. We just spend too much money on their coffee, haha.

    If you had the option, is your dream 'career' to be a 'home engineer' (stay at home mom)?
    No. With a teaching career, I can have the best of both worlds. I admire those women who do it, but I just could not.

    What does your '5 year plan' look like?
    Graduate college, get married, move (probably out of state) get actual careers, and by 26 start having kids (we are both 22, will be 23 by wedding).

  • What do you do for a living?
    I'm a youth minister (w00t)

    Do you enjoy your career?
    Just started at a new church with a tough history so I have more days that I struggle to stay positive, but in general, I love youth ministry and helping kids...just need to persevere for the next couple of years while the church heals and rebuilds.

    What did you think you would end up 'being when you grew up'?
    Oh boy, Lion Trainer at one point. Mostly a writer and then in High School and into early college I wanted to be a lawyer - Corporate Litigator. Yay for B.S. in Economics (Graceb)!

    Is there something you would rather do?
    Than youth ministry? Not really. I also lead retreats, do ministry trainings, write retreats and materials, speak at conferences and stuff which I really enjoy and would be interested in doing more of that perhaps.

    If you had the option, is your dream 'career' to be a 'home engineer' (stay at home mom)?
    Not a dream career, per se, but I definitely hope to be a stay at home mom and just do ministry consulting and stuff part-time.

    What does your '5 year plan' look like?
    I learned not to make too hard and fast of plans after early college when I thought I'd be a lawyer, haha. In general, get married, start having lots of babies, write more ministry resources, work on my music, maybe, love my husband. Yeah, sounds pretty good to me. Oh, and finish my master's degree finally!

    Do you enjoy your career? not sure ha

    What did you think you would end up 'being when you grew up'? a nurse, which isnt what I went in to and some times wish I had

    Is there something you would rather do?
     possibly nursing, we will see in a few years what happens

    If you had the option, is your dream 'career' to be a 'home engineer' (stay at home mom)?
    DEFINITELY /> I would love that more than anything, but I dont think FI wants it to happen

    Graduate school and get a JOB!, FI graduate Grad school, and hopefully a baby :)
    I also would love to do some work around our house--decorating etc.
  • What do you do for a living?
    I'm a 911 dispatcher

    Do you enjoy your career?
    I LOVE my job!  When I finished college I didn't even try to find another job.

    What did you think you would end up 'being when you grew up'?
    When I was a kid I wanted to be a teacher. 

    Is there something you would rather do?
    I'm happy doing what I'm doing right now.

    If you had the option, is your dream 'career' to be a 'home engineer' (stay at home mom)?
    Sounds nice, but I would miss working out of the house.

  • What do you do for a living?
    I'm currently looking for employment as an attorney.  I just got my license yesterday!  In the interim, I work as a Personal Care Attendant for special needs children adopted from foster care.

    Do you enjoy your career?
    I think that I will love being a lawyer, but that remains to be seen.  Being a PCA is challenging and rewarding, but I am ready to move on into my chosen field.

    What did you think you would end up 'being when you grew up'?
    When I was very small, I wanted to be a veterinarian.  As I got a bit older (middle school age), I became fixated on being a lawyer. 

    Is there something you would rather do?
    I would love to be a travel writer.

    If you had the option, is your dream 'career' to be a 'home engineer' (stay at home mom)?
    It's certainly not my dream career.  I think that I would be very good at it, but I don't know if I would be happy.  I do think that it's important for infants and toddlers to have a stay-at-home parent, but my FI and I have talked about the possibility of his fulfilling that role when the time comes.  We shall see!

    What does your '5 year plan' look like?
    I want to establish myself in my career and work on paying those student loans down!  FI and I want to buy a house, and I want to get a puppy (I am working on convincing FI that this is a good idea).  Maybe a baby, toward the end of the five years . . .

    What does your '5 year plan' look like? Well, few months ago I thought in five years I`ll be happily married with two kids. I`ll also be a supervisor in the newly open hospital that is in process of construction right now. My family will move to a bigger house (I own a townhouse now) and we will be really happy.
    So far, the only thing that I`ll have to change is my plan of having two kids. I think I`ll have to wait a bit after chemo treatment before I start having kids:((( Although, who knows....maybe not...
