Five Question Friday has a minor change this week, owing to my being out sick from work yesterday, looks like I’m the only one around to interview. And there is a bonus question since you had to wait!
It’ s time to learn a little more about the people here at Thill Logistics. The Friday 5 has now become, 5 Question Friday. The idea is based on the website Formspring and the classic Bernard Pivot questionnaire, just imagine that I am holding my blue index cards and asking the questions in a soothing James Liptonesque tone. The format is simple, five questions. The first 4 will stay constant, (3 work related questions and 1 from Pivot) but the 5thquestion… that is up to you! Please comment and send in questions here on the Thill Blog, or send them to me via Formspring to carrieatthill.
Here are my 5 questions for Me!
What is your role at Thill Logistics? I am the Social Media Developer
How did you get into your field? I had been using social media for a while when I started managing the accounts for a pub, a Realtor & an accountant. When I saw a “real job” in social media, here at Thill Logistics, Inc. I had to jump at the opportunity!
What is your favorite thing about your field? I love that it is a new field. Everything is fast paced, non stop and ever changing! I also am amazed at the connections you make with other people. The community of people you network with and speak to via social media become brand advocates, teachers, students, sounding boards, advisors & friends. I can’t think of another field that is like that.
(Bernard Pivot) What is your favorite word? This is the question I have been dreading since I started 5QF! For those of you who know me, you already know that I have a love for all things “vocabular“, and especially it a word is a great big multisyllabic monstrosity! My most often used words are things like – yo, sup, hey, ouch, dang-it, dude & absolutely. But I think my favorite word has to be LOVELY. Not only does it have great onomatopoeia, (another favorite word BTW) it can be used as an adverb, and adjective, and even a full stand alone sentence, (both sincerely or with a bit of biting sarcasm.)
(Formspring) What is your favorite Christmas song? There are a couple songs that I have to hear before I can consider it Christmas! 1) Baby it’s Cold Outside – by Liza Minnelli & Alan Cumming 2) The Twelve Days of Christmas – by Bob & Doug Mackenzie 3) Christmastime – from the A Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack.
(Twitter) There were two sent from Twitter for the super duper extra bonus question!
@AJBombers asked – How do you find the time? – Time Management has never been natural to me. I am quite easily … squirrel! To get everything in during my day I wake up at a ridiculous time of day to cram things in before work. I also like to break up my day into 15 minute increments, work on project a for 15, then move onto something else for another 15 minutes and so on.
@tommytrc asked – What are 5 things you can’t live without?
1. My Friends/Family/Loved ones/ puppy
2. Technology – cellphones/computers
