FF #26 – Dream Job

Posted September 24, 2015 by Lillian in Features / 3 Comments

feature&follow-friday-logoFeature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee @ Parajunkee’s View and Alison @ Alison Can Read. Each week the two hosts post a question for Book Bloggers to answer, provide a link-up, and choose a participant to feature on their blogs. If you participate, the point is to follow others and in return gain followers.

Welcome to this week’s edition of Feature & Follow! I’m Lillian in case you didn’t know that already 😉 I started blogging a year ago and it has been a fun and crazy year! I read pretty much anything that is placed in front of me, I’m a bit of a cover snob, and I tend to gravitate to young adult fiction. Why young adult? Well, it’s usually a cleaner read than adult fiction, there’s plenty of action/suspense, and who can resist a romance about first love?!

My blog features whatever I happen to be in the mood to read. I’ve had some fun interviews with authors and characters and hope to do more in the very near future. Please join me in some bookish adventures. You can follow via Bloglovin or anyway you choose 😀

This week’s questions is: “If you could have any job, what would you do?” – Suggested by Peace Love Books

When I was a kid, I always wanted to be a doctor. This stemmed from having a grandfather that was sick and in the hospital. He used to call me his little nurse. When I got older I realized that my grandfather was right. I wanted to be a nurse not a doctor. I liked the hands on care approach. I wanted to know my patients.

When I was 13, a friend of mine died while battling Leukemia. That experience shaped what I wanted to do and have done in my life. All of a sudden I no longer wanted to be a nurse. I wanted to be a pediatric oncology nurse.

And friends for 5 years I did just that. It wasn’t always easy. There were days I cried for my patients and their families. But that didn’t outweigh the good I saw.

You may have noticed that I wrote in past tense. That’s because I now have a different but equally important job…staying home raising my sweet little boy. Honestly I couldn’t ask for a better job than that.

What about you? What job do you want?

  1. I don’t think I could ever be a nurse or any profession in helath care for that matter, seeing patients who are sick and dying seems so sad and emotional and I don’t think I could handle that. So I have a lot of respect for those that can. I always wanted to be a writer or teacher when I grew up. Then when I went to uni I thought I would become a child psychologist, but then realized that being a psycholgist wasn’t the right job for me. Then I wanted to do something with marketing and eventually landed my dream job of havign my own blog tour company and helping authors with their marketing. It’s the perfect job for me!
