About Me

My photo
I am a 22 year old college graduate (hurray!!) who has two degrees (business and psychology). I am going to do the DCP in August because I dont want to grow up. I can't wait to be living in FL again in the happiest place on earth!! A cautionary whale: I talk about everyone and everything in this blog...my opinions are just that...opinions so take them at face value and if you don't like what I have to say...then don't read it, Einstein!

My check out, disney weekend and first day of work by myself

So the other day was my check out and I passed! Hurray! I was a little mad because I had prepared so well to meet the managers and when I did they didnt even ask me anything! They asked if I was an Alumni and I said yes and he goes "oh well then I guess you are good to go!"

On my Disney weekend...which was Friday and Saturday all of my roommates plus Luke, his roommate Brandon, Evan, Joey, some of joey's friends and Matt went to Jellyrolls. Jellyrolls is a dueling piano bar on the boardwalk of the beach hotel. It was really fun! We had the guy sing Britney Spears to two of our roommates (Britney and Maria) since it was their birthday.

The next day Luke, Maria, Britney, Kari, Meagan, Amanda and I had decided to go to Typhoon Lagoon since it will be closing in October-ish. It was a really fun time. We went on the water coaster and swam with sharks!

Yesterday was my first day of work all by myself! I did every position and it was FABULOUS!!! I didnt mess up and when I was in tower there were no mess ups!!! Im really excited about it!!

Day 2 of training

OMG so there are RATS and other crawley things back there. AHHHH!! I can't reall say much about what Im learning but it is seriously intense. I had to make myself a cheat sheet. I am so afraid someone will kill themselves. AND I hate talking to people and thats basically all I do all day long!

Its so different from my last college program where I had very little guest interaction. I almost think vacation planning was MUCH easier. There were so fewer things that I had to memorize. Im very overwhelmed with how much responsibility we have and how short we are trained for. Its almost scary how much they expect but from a business stand point, I understand it.

Ok, more tomorrow...im super tired and Life with Derek is on.

Day 2

So today was my orientation to the Magic Kingdom. It was a little boring because I knew a bit about the park. OOH I am working as a pirate! Thats pretty exciting. Tomorrow I have to work 7-4 again but doing mostly computer stuff. Im kinda looking forward to it.

Amanda and I just went on a walk around Patterson because we were a little bored and no one was really around to hang out with. Any ways we played the liscense plate game where we walked around and found different or lonely liscense plates. South Dakota was the strangest one we saw tonight.

Well there is this awesome lifetime movie on about being accepted to ivy league schools. Amanda and I are kinda loving it...more tomorrow after training

Check in and Day 2

So I am finally settling in here in Patterson. I have most of my stuff unpack and put away (and yes I didnt pack myself any socks). Amanda and I have set up our bed, hung our clothes in the closet and put our food in the fridge. Last night was AMAZING. We didnt end up going to the dinner because of the weather but we hung out with everyone from the youtube vlogs (Justine, Matt & Lauren, Evan, Joey, Caroline, Ben, Paul and some others) and they were hilarious and awesome cause they made us dinner. Amanda and I had a great time and hopefully we hang out with them more in the future!

Today Jeff came on errands with me and Amanda (He pretty much always makes things more entertaining). We went to property control, Access control and then came back to the apartment and just hung out. He also labeled things in our apartment and let me draw a heart on his sneakers ANDDD TOOK OUT OUR GARBAGE!!!!

THENNNN Amanda and I went on a great and grand advernture called food shopping for under $100. Im not sure if I made budget but I think I did. We were late to the pool party but it seemed pretty cool. After that Amanda, Maria and I took Stanley (Amanda's car) to get a bath cause he had bug guts on him from the trip.

Josh came over some time after that and sat in our room and talked to us. He also wanted a behind the scenes tour of Patterson, haha.

Tomorrow Amanda and I are heading to the parks (Starting at Haunted Mansion of course) and hopefully will be meeting up with everyone else once they get thier id's after traditions. Amanda and I get to skip traditions because technically we never stopped being cast members after our last CP. Anyways Im looking forward to it.

Its time!!!

So it is offically the day of check in (12:09!) and even after taking a sleeping pill...I cant sleep. I'm just to excited!

On Monday at 4:30 am, My dad and I left NY. We got to NC at about 3, we headed over to Meredith to get my school transcripts and to see the new track (Which is so pretty and it should be since it cost like $20 million). Then we went to Edward McKays and I sold back some books and got a special tin of Mickey Mouse cartoons!! Then it was back to Aunt Leenies where I spent the rest of the night throwing things into my car. (The set it and forget it roaster was not one of them).

Today/YesterdayDad and I left NC at 6:30 am and got to FL at 4:30. Amanda was hanging out with some people at Patterson so I swung by there to say hello. Then we went to check into our hotel. My dads a little mad cause I made him stay at the cheapest hotel I could find ($27). Its sketchville USA. The sink doesnt drain and has someone elses hair, the nightstand has a signature on it and some remnents of books. At least there arent any bugs!! I also had a roommate dinner tonight (we all met at All Star Movies). We ate dinner at the caf and then made a list of stuff that we are going to need.

I am excited to unpack tomorrow. Mostly because I dont know what I really brought! I was such a spaz when I was packing in NC that I am liable to end up with or without anything. I dont know if I packed any socks even!!

Oh I am an offical brunette again. The color came out good and I only had one mishap with the shower curtain and my head.

Well this was a quick post but I wanted to comment and remember and now I need some sleep.

This past weekend

So I went to Amandas house this past weekend to celebrate a) her going away party b) Jakes graduation party. It was so much fun!!

The first day Amanda, Jeff and I went to the Niagara county fair and walked around getting tons of free stuff from the vendors that were there. We got everything from hats to tshirts and water bottles. The saddest thing ever happend though...Paul Bunion was canceled. They said that their insurance fell through but I was so looking forward to defending my last place title!! However I did get roasted corn so overall it was super fun!

Then on Sunday we set up for the party. We ended up playing Kings cup and beer pong (I used water since I had to drive home that night) but overall it was incredible. I love hanging out with Amanda and her family.

Now this week is going to be a bit crazy. I have to cram everything I want to do while home into Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because we leave for camping on Thursday. I also have to clean and pack my car somewhere in there. Thursday and Friday we are camping in Sampson state park and Saturday there is a field hockey tournament and Sunday we pack up and come home. I leave for North Carolina at 4:30 Monday morning cause I have to pick up transcripts from Meredith and I want to go to Edward McKays before going to my aunts house to pack up my car.

Tuesday is down to FL and some Sams shopping and then Wednesday is CHECK IN!!!!

Keep your fingers crossed that I get the Haunted Mansion!!!
