So tired...

I am absolutely exhausted! I have been in training all day and I just got home.  Training was a blast though.  Who would have thought that training for a new job could be so much fun.  I was in the entertainment group.  Unfortunately, that is about all I can really tell you about my training today.  I can tell you that we got to watch the castle show this afternoon and it did make me a bit teary eyed, but that's all I can tell you.  The rest is a Disney secret!

I will upload videos soon!!

First few days... continued!

Okay, so after check-in day, we were exhausted. Thursday was a free day.  This was the last day that I would get to see mom, so we went shopping and went out to lunch together in Celebration.  After she stocked up my pantry, mom left.  I must admit, this was easier than I anticipated it would have been.  I didn't even cry!  I just knew that this is where I am supposed to be.  I could not be more happy with my choice of moving here.
After mom left, the roomies and I got ready to go to our Welcome Party!  It was pirate themed and was a lot of fun.  There was free food (always good) and music and dancing and of course... characters.  We met Pirate Mickey!  It was pretty amazing, if I do say so myself.

DAY 3:
Well on Friday Brittany, Sarah and I all had the early Traditions class.  Traditions is basically Disney Orientation. You learn a lot about Disney History and other things :) . The 3 of us had to be up at 5AM!!!  This was so we could catch the 6:45 bus to Traditions.  At Traditions you receive all the important things, like your name tag and your company id (this is what gets you into the parks for free!). So needless to say it was totally worth getting up at 5 am because after Traditions, Brittany, Sarah and I all came back to the apartment, changed and went to spend the rest of the afternoon at the Magic Kingdom!

DAY 4:
Yesterday I had the day off.  Two of my roomies started training so they were gone in the morning. May and I went to check out Mickey's Retreat.  For those of you who don't know, Mickey's Retreat is a cast area where they have a lake and pools and basketball courts and fun stuff for the cast members.  So we played in the sand for a bit. Then Brittany and Sarah came home.  They wanted to eat lunch and run some errands so May and I tagged along.  After our errands we came home and instead of going to Epcot we had dinner at home and watched the phineas and ferb musical episode!

Disney is AMAZING!

For those of you who haven't heard yet... I am having the time of my life, and I have only been here 4 days!
I know I have tons to get you all caught up with, but this is the first time I have gotten the internet working in my apartment.  I am sitting here next to my roomie at the one and only desk in our apartment.  Brittany and I both have MAC computers and our internet was being weird, so we are now catching up with everything that has happened since we got here.
Check-in was great.  The day was kind of rainy, but it didn't end up raining until we got into the tents, so that worked out well.  We stood in a long line, for about an hour.  We had heard that they opened at 8am instead of 9am which is what all the papers said, so we got to Vista Way(where we had to check in) around 7am.  When the gate opened at 8am, we went back to the welcome center and started the process.  First, we had to fill out some paperwork, then we went to go get our apartment assignment.  I was the chosen one who got the important responsibility to choose our housing for us.  After all that happened, we got our keys and our id's to get into our complex, then got on a bus to go to casting.  At the casting building, we turned in all of our paperwork like our I-9 and W-2's. We also found out our work location!  I am officially working at Epcot!!!! Then we got finger printed and did some other stuff. The last thing we did was got our schedules.  My schedule says that I report to a class called welcome to entertainment on monday. Somehow I got lucky and I have the whole weekend off. This whole process took us from 7am (when we started to line up) to about 11am (when we were done at casting).  Then my roomies and I all went to lunch at Chick-fil-a, and started to move into our apartment.  We had a little bit of time to move in before we had our housing meeting.  Our housing meeting took about 2 hours. By then we were exhausted so we went grocery shopping and had dinner, then we watched some tv and went to bed. 

That was day one!! haha

Hello From ORLANDO!!

I am here!!!!!
I found an apple store and I am abusing the free internet to write my blog.  Mom is off shopping at another store, and here I am, writing in this thing.
We made it safely, although Mom cried most of the way.  I on the other hand, lost it completely in Phoenix and kept it together for the whole trip here.
Mom and I just had dinner and now we are walking around the Florida Mall... or at least I think that is what it is called.  And after I leave here, we are going to Universal City Walk to walk around.
I am taking lots of video, but I can't upload it yet.  Just know that there will be videos coming your way soon!

Off we go to Universal!

I am leaving for Florida in exactly 9 hours!  I cannot believe it.  This is crazy.  I am all packed, and I am now trying to decide if sleep is in my future. 

It is a very weird feeling, you know the one you have knowing that you will not be coming home for 6 months.  I think it has really finally hit me.  But, I am thinking that once I am actually there and busy working and hanging out with all my new friends, I won't even think about how much I will miss my home.  But as I sit in my room and write this, it is really hitting me that I am moving away from home.  I am such a homebody, but I know that this adventure is just what I need at this point in my life.  I also know that I will not be alone because I know that Devon will be there with me every step of the way.  Even when he pushes me onto Rockin Roller Coaster (which he would!  That or Tower of Terror). 

Well I just yawned... So, I am thinking that means I should get ready for bed.  This may be my last post for a bit.  I will try and update when I can.  But my 30 day challenge may take longer than 30 days, because I forgot the fact that I will most likely not have an internet connection for a while. 

Now, to leave you with my answer for today's question: Underrated Movie.
A Goofy Movie.  One of my Favorites. 
Please enjoy my favorite song from the movie!!

Tuesday, January 18, 2011


Well, I am a complete failure.  I missed yesterdays question.  This is what always happens, I open my blog to answer the question and come up with a fantastic answer, but then I forget about it until maybe 11:30 pm.  And this time, I just completely forgot.  So, you get two answers today. 

Yesterdays question was... Favorite Sequel.
I would have to say, Toy Story 2!
The second question is... An overrated movie.
Maybe Pirates 2.  I actually turned it off half way through.  Maybe I should give it another chance....

Least favorite?

I don't like having to pick a least favorite, but this time I really do have a least favorite.....
My least favorite Pixar movie is:

Don't get me wrong, it was cute.  Mator was my favorite character.  But it is not one of those movies I really love to watch over and over again!

Saturday, January 15, 2011

Hey guys,
I realize that I am horrible at this and for that I am sorry.  I have really meant to do better, but I really have nothing to say... EXCEPT.....


That is all.  hahah

My Favorite Pixar Movie is: 
Why, isn't Remy the cutest?!

I have to pick one....

I really can't say that I have a least favorite song, but since I have to, I choose.


It is hard to explain.  It is just not one of those songs that got stuck in my head like the others.

Be Prepared?

It just dawned on me today that I have 2 weeks before I leave for Florida. Am I ready? Yes!!!
Am I Ready? Not at all. I have finally started to pack today and this is proving to be much harder than I had anticipated. I feel like I am over packing and I haven't even put it in a suitcase yet.

Anyway... on to my question of the day....
My Favorite Disney Villian is....

I love him and Iago. Their banter is awesome!

I am so very proud of myself.  I have been doing such a great job keeping up with this blog!  Well, at least the writing portion of it.  I promise, there will be a new video soon because....... I GOT A NEW VIDEO CAMERA!! From now on I will be shooting in HIGH DEFINITION!!! At least, when I make a new video it will be in HD.

So many animals, set them free!

Okay, I had a very hard time choosing which animal was my favorite for day 5.  At least I think I am on day 5.  Oops. :)
To be honest.  I couldn't even pick just one favorite. I had to pick a few favorite animals.

I picked Timon AND Pumba, and here are my reasons why:
1) They are good together. I feel like you really can't separate them because they are a duo.
2) All the good songs in the movie, they sing together. AKA: Hakuna Matata.
3) Lastly, they are awesome.  I mean what other duo would dress up in a hula skirt and coconut bra to distract hyenas?  NO ONE!! :D

Zero to Hero?

I love Hercules! He is my choice for day number 4 (Favorite Hero) in my 30 day Disney Challenge.   
Why you might ask?
As the song states-"When he smiled
The girls went wild with
oohs and aahs" :D
