PromoGuy's Monday Mission 2.47
1. Have you ever made a wish that came true? Yes. When I got my first job.
2. How about any wishes that you are happy never came true? None come to mind, although I'm sure there are plenty of them.
3. Do you like who you are? Are you the person you hoped you would become? For the most part. I have a few quirks that I could live without but I'm still working on me and figuring out what makes me tick.
4. I recently found some job applications that I never turned in. Back in 1986 I intended to apply at "County Seat" and "Chess King" but got an offer from Penny's (where I worked all through college). It was a good thing, since only one of the three is still around. Have you ever applied for positions, or had any interviews, where you later are glad you never got the job? None that I can think of. Although I am sure there are a few that probably wouldn't have been good if I had gotten the jobs.
5. While on the topic of career opportunities, what was your very first "real" job? What job was the most embarrassing? My first job was working at a bagel place. My first career job was at an ad agency as a copywriter. Most embarrassing job...hmm. I don't know that I've had one of those yet.
6. Speaking of news, have you had your 15 minutes of fame yet? Such as being in the newspaper, on television, linked on a high-profile site or otherwise caught in the spotlight of the media? Well I have had my picture in the local paper, but it wasn't really 15 minutes of fame, since no fame came of it. It wasn't really a "talked about" piece. But it's possible that it was my one shot.
7. In the USA, many of us will celebrate Thanksgiving this week. Do you celebrate Thanksgiving (or something like it)? Do you enjoy getting together will your extended family for these types of celebrations? I do celebrate Thanksgiving. But it's more about the food than anything else. I don't mind doing the family thing but it's rare that I'm with my extended family since they are all over.
BONUS: Where is the tenderness? Next to the beef.
