Sunday Social

Okay, I can't promise a blog post every Sunday but this sounded like fun!
{plus there is nothing on TV...the one thing I'm looking forward to about the Fall!}
I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Sunday Social

1. What is your dream job?
Opening my own private practice to serve children and their families. That's my "career" answer, but I truly want to open a bakery of some sort. 
I've always wanted to open a cupcake shop, WAY before those were even heard of. 
Maybe that will happen someday!

2. If you just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time?
Donate any earnings to charity, travel, and stay home with my future children.

3. What did you want to be when you grew up?
A teacher. Always wanted to be a teacher until high school when I decided on being a therapist.

4. What piece of career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field?
Don't take your work home with you {Practice what you preach, Alyssa...}
Seriously though.. this one is hard. 
I have a tough job as a social worker and have become a little jaded about things I can't even talk about on this blog. You have to separate yourself from work or else you will literally go crazy...and trust me, I've been there. Yes, you will see and hear about horrible things you only thought existed in the movies but you can't bring this home with you for your own sanity.
Took this from my awesome boss Nicole! :)

5. Biggest pet peeves?
About my job? 
When other workers or parents talk about their kids in front of the kids, as if they aren't there. Horrible.

In general? 
Dishonesty, selfishness, people who are stuck up, people who can't stick to their own beliefs and change their opinions depending on who they are talking to

6. Biggest fears
Anything happening to any of my loved ones. 


  1. how beautiful that your first thought if you won $ would be to help others..
    and a cupcake fun would that be?!!!
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

  2. I would have the hardest time leaving the work at work if i was in your line, I have so much respect for you. I just don't have the personality that could look at it as just a job and listening and fixing. I get attached.. I would just not be able to leave it! The things you would hear.. ahh.. my heart would stop beating. It's not an easy job!
