Finish This – Week #35

This game is called “Finish This,” and all you have to do is finish the following prompts and link up your post below! You can also visit the other hosts of this party on their fun blogs: Nicole {Three 31} Lisa {Coastlined}, Jen {The Arizona Russums} and Becky {The Java Mama}.

I celebrated Labor Day by… Running!  I had WAY too much fun going out on Saturday night while at the cabin, so needed Sunday to recover.  Normally I do my long runs on Sunday, but had to push this one off til Monday.  It was a great run though!  Glad I was able to push myself and get it done.

My dream job/career, would be… teaching.  I have my teaching degree and license but have worked for the same company for 15 years.  The only thing holding me back is money.  Unfortunately I would have to take a significant pay cut to pursue that dream of teaching.  Maybe some day.
My first paying job was … well I actually delivered penny papers for my very first paying job. The job I consider to be “first” is bussing tables at a local hotel/restaurant.  My grandfather would take us there as kids, so it was so sweet for that to be one of my first jobs.  I was 14 when I started.
My current job is … I am a Business Analyst in Human Resources for an Insurance Company.  I support Human Resource computer applications such as our absence and staffing systems.  It’s definitely a “job” and not my most favorite, but I am blessed to have a job locally (since most of the jobs are leaving this area) and one that allows me to be flexible and work from home.

Invite your blogging friends and come back next Wednesday for another round of Finish This where we’ll answer another set of prompts!

  1. Hi Kristen! Way to go with your run! I hear ya with the money holding you back thingy….I would love to pursue another job of some sort, even volunteer somewhere, but whoa, there's that money thing again. blah!

  2. I taught for five years and gave it up. Now I work for an insurance company. I agree with you, it's a job. I'd love to make a switch but since I carry the benefits for our family it's difficult to make a move. And when I finally do I want it to be for something I love, not just another job.

  3. One more reason I wish you lived closer! You could totally do a 5K!! (Or maybe when you are done breast feeding) that might be more feasible. I am doing my first 10K in 2 weeks. This is coming from the girl who could barely walk 15 minutes a few months ago.
