I can’t remember when I first started working from home, I know for sure it was in the middle of AJ’s pregnancy or shortly towards the end and he is now four years old. I have been working from home a very long time to say the least and it’s a struggle but I love that I am able to do this.
One of the jobs I used to have outside of the home was a film librarian at a local hospital and I do miss parts of that job. I used to be able to wear Scrubs to work which was the first bonus. I mean I literally get out of bed, shower, take off my pajama’s just to get back in what feels like comfy pajama’s anyways! Who wouldn’t love that job!?
I remember when I first starting working as a film librarian I was your basic film librarian, just filing away the patients x-rays, making sure they were out when doctors needed them for appointments and similar tasks. I used to work in the basement there at times filing really old x-ray files and that wasn’t always too fun but loved being alone working for the most part down there. As the job went on I was given more responsibility such as using the dark room!
I loved using the dark room, it took a while to get used to bringing the film in their from the x-ray tech and developing the film in the dark. I admit there were times small x-rays were on larger than needed x-ray film but it was so fun to be able to say I had that experience in my life! I really didn’t have to wear Scrub Sets at this job because I wasn’t a nurse or an x-ray tech but I enjoyed wearing them, not to mention I was pregnant with my daughter so maternity clothing wasn’t in my budget back then!
What did you like best about a job you held outside of the home now or in the past?
