Share Your World – June 6, 2017

What’s your strongest sense?

As long as I haven’t burnt my tongue, I think that my taste is probably my strongest sense (I’m assuming we’re talking about the 5 senses here) As soon as I start eating I usually can taste a lot in it, including that special taste of “I really need to stop eating this”lol

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

It’s probably somewhere between Happy and Bashful. It honestly depends on how well you know me, if I don’t know you very well, I would probably be more bashful. I’m still happy, but I am definitely a lot more shy. If you know me well I would probably be a lot more happier.

If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?

I probably would have stayed 30, but as long as I get to keep the people that I have in my life right now, and the people who are not apart of it now, still aren’t apart of it. That year that I turned 30 was probably my best year ever and I constantly wish that I could relive it. It seemed like once I turned 31 everything started to feel more frustrating, my body just started breaking up/down and I was getting nowhere with getting a library job. If I could just be 30 now with everything that I have in my life now, I’d be so happy.

List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.  [Remember:  This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.]

  • Writer
  • Acting
  • A successful craft type business
  • I would actually love to be a photographer, but I am so self conscious of people going that I’m being anti-social or something >.<

I got it =D

Not only did I get a great accidental photo of this smiling fruit …

but I got it…I got my first step into my dream job =D

I have been fighting to get a position in the Library field, for such a long time now, and in a small town it is an incredibly hard feat. Once you tend to get into a Library here, you tend to be in it for life. Even with all my education and volunteer work, I wasn’t even getting close. I always got overlooked for other people who were already in the industry, but wanted to work at the location I wanted too. I came pretty close earlier in the year, but nope.

It was literally a catch 22, I was always told, you would fit in great here and we wanted to give you the first step in the door, but we’re going to give the job to someone whose already working.

Stand Up for Yourself (It’s okay)

I have been volunteering at the Library I am currently volunteering at for nearly two years now and I just found out recently that another whole group of my classmates were hired for actual casual work within this Library, even though they came after me.

This was probably the 5th group of casuals that have been hired since I started volunteering there. As you can imagine this was the last straw for me.

So this time instead of “letting it go” I decided to ask them if there was anything that they could tell me, were they able to give me some honest feedback? According to them I’m not doing anything wrong (they would have let me know by now if I was) I just hadn’t sent in my application in again since March. Which I’m struggling a little with since I sent them an updated resume in December, when I obtained my new employment…But whatever…

The reason for this Blog today is though, I was completely pleasant while making noise and making sure that they know that I am there and I will not be ignored and I will not be going away. With no need to be aggressive.

So stand up for yourself, if it’s something that you want (in my case working in this Library would be the ultimate career and the ultimate work location too) go for it! Sometimes they may genuinely not know that you are even there! You don’t need to be aggressive or nasty, but go for it!

Stand Up and make some noise! Let them know that you are there!
