Too Tired To Think Meme: Part II

So, I fail. I forgot to do Sunday Stealing this past Sunday ON Sunday. So I’m doing it now. Aren’t you so lucky? ;)

26. What type of errands do you like running?
I like going to Target for anything, and I like going to Trader Joe’s for groceries.

27. Have you ever eaten snow?
Yes, when I was younger. And no, it wasn’t yellow.

28. What color are your bedsheets?
I’m pretty sure they’re orange.

29. What’s your favorite flower?
Wildflowers, followed by lilacs.

30. Do you do ballet?
No. Wellll, sometimes I bust out my New York City Ballet Workout DVD. Does that count?

31. Do you listen to classical music?
Yes. I love classical music.

32. What is the first TV Theme song that pops in your head?
The theme song to Punky Brewster. I still know all the words!

33. Do you watch Sponge Bob?
I do when Aidan puts it on. My favorite episode is “The Idiot Box.”

34. What temperature is it outside right now?

35. Do people consider you smart?

36. How many piercing do you have?
Just my ears now, double pierced. Used to have navel a long time ago.

37. Are you signed on [to] AIM?

38. Have you ever tried gluing your fingers together?

39. How do you feel about your family?
Love them.

40. Do you have an iPod?
I have two. One is a classic from 2007 that no longer really works with headphones (but works fine in our dock player), the other is a silver classic. I got it last fall. Apple was nice enough to replace it for me after the one I bought in 2010 crashed and burned one or two days after my warranty expired.

41. What time do you go to bed?
Too late! Wah.

42. What CD is currently in your CD player?
There isn’t one in there now but I can tell you that the last one was Bon Jovi – Cross Road.

43. What movie do you know every line to?

44. What is your favorite salad dressing?
Catalina! Mmmmm. Oh wow, a salad sounds really good right now.

45. What do you want for Christmas this year?
Gift cards to iTunes, gift cards to bookstores (or Amazon), gift cards to Old Navy, just about everything from The Pyramid Collection, safe travels, health, love, my mom’s traditional Christmas dinner (YUM), to be looking forward to a trip to Disney World (hee hee), to be happy. :)

46. What family member/friend lives the farthest from you? Where?
My friend Stephanie Jae lives in London.

47. Do you like hugs?
I LOVE hugs!

48. Last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
Yesterday because I knew I had to do savasana adjustments and I just learned how to do them so I was hoping I wouldn’t mess up. (Someone came up and complimented me after class, so I guess I did OK.)

49. What’s the way people most often mispronounce any part of your name?
It doesn’t happen so much anymore because I introduce myself as Ronni, but when I go by Ronica (my real name), a lot of people think it’s “Veronica” and when I was younger, I often got Roo-NEEK-uh if they hadn’t heard it pronounced (like in a doctor’s office or in a new class with a new teacher). It’s pronounced RAW-ni-kah.

50. Last person you hugged?
Aidan. Although I got a lot of hugs at Moksha–one from Amber, one from Betty, and one from Rachel. <3

The Employment Enjoyment Meme

1. What kind of work do you do?
I am a freelance copy editor and proofreader.

2. During the course of your lifetime, which job or career has been your favorite or most fulfilling?
Anytime I get the chance to edit materials meant for primary school I get super excited. My most fulfilling work is when I get to make really cool stuff even cooler.

Fruits of My Labor
this was one of my favorite projects.

3. Do you think it’s necessary in your life to have a day-to-day “career” that is meaningful and service-oriented or do you function better in “just a job” with a steady paycheck?
I have to do meaningful work, but I admit that it taks a certain amount of privilege to be able to say that. Any time I’ve worked on a position that was just a “paycheck”, I felt like I was dying inside. When it’s Sunday night and you’re wishing you’d get sick so you can call off? That’s a problem. When you’re crying on the commute home? That’s a problem. But some people don’t have a choice, and I respect that.

4. Was there ever a time in your life when you wanted to stay home with your children instead of working, even if it meant less money in the household?
Yes, especially when Aidan was first born. Now I am fortunate enough to be able to do most of my work from home.

5. Tell us your worst boss story.
Hmm, there was the time I went to leave work and the boss said, “You have five more minutes.” When I showed him the clock on my computer that did NOT indicate I had five more minutes, he reset the clock and made me sit for five more minutes before I could leave.

6. Have your ever been the boss? Do you like this this role?
No. I purposely avoid those types of roles. I’ve been sort of a “leader” in a way, but I feel that’s different from being a boss. And even then I was dragged kicking and screaming into the role.

7. What is your dream occupation?
New York Times Best-Selling author as well as someone who gets to edit awesome fiction.

Here are some pictures from some of my past jobs:

Working the Front Desk
working the front desk at the stadium scholarship dorm at ohio state university
(yes, i actually lived in the stadium. it was awesome.
this gave me the opportunity to live in less expensive housing.
it actually should’ve been called the stadium workstudy dorm.)

First Day
first day working as a desk attendent at the apt i lived in from 1995-1998

Another Work Picture
i took pictures of myself during breaks when i worked at Nationwide

Grey Contacts

And a couple past workspaces:

Work My Desk at Work

Wanna hire me? Check out my LinkedIn profile. :)

OK speaking of work, I need to get back to it. Ta ta!
