Well I realize now... bad at this I truely am.  I have been so busy with work that by the time I get home and even think about writing in my blog, I am in bed asleep.  Then I wake up the next morning and go to work and do the same thing over again.
Things are still going great.  I love my role.  I am starting to really get to know some of the people I work with. Oh and most important, I am making friends.  There are some amazing people here, and they all seem to have the same passions for disney things as I do. 
I love being able to just go to the parks for an afternoon and just walking around.  Maybe go on a ride or two, but I am just enjoying taking it all in. Tomorrow I am probably going to one of the parks, because I get out of work so early.
Life is wonderful!

Say Mickey!!!

I love my job. I just absolutely love it! I love that I get so much guest interaction.  I have met so many amazing people, including a family from the London area, and even some people from Arizona. 

The only down sides of my job: 
-I pretty much lose my voice by the end of each day. (Don't worry, it's worth it)
-The sun is intense here. (Sunscreen is my best friend)
-I am using muscles that I didn't know could hurt so much. (But it is still worth it)
-Everyday I really want to ride Soarin' because of the music they play in the entrance
So far, the downsides are still pretty positive. 

As much as I love my job, I am quite looking forward to having a few days off to go play.  I need to do some shopping, oh and laundry.  Those are high on my list. 
I hope everyone is enjoying these posts.  I know they are few and far between, and that I haven't made many videos, but I will get back to it.  I will go film on my next days off.
Hope everyone is doing well!

Day 3 of Training!

I am up early to catch a bus to Epcot.  Today is my first official day at Epcot and I am so excited!  I think we actually get to interact with guests today! So exciting!  I will tell you all about it when I get home tonight!

Day 2 of Training complete!

For the past two days I have been at Animal Kingdom training to take pictures the way Disney wants us to take them.  It is very interesting the system we use.  It is custom to Disney, and we have all the rights and patents so that no one can copy us.  Go DISNEY for being awesome like that. 
I am going to keep this a bit short tonight because I am tired and I have day 3 of training tomorrow, but here is an overview of what we have done the past two days.
Day one we went over things like, What Photopass is, how it works and how our cameras work.  It was interesting to learn what setting we put our cameras on and how they want us to crop our pictures. 
Day 2 we went over more of the same information as yesterday-this was just to pound it into our heads so we know what we are talking about when we are interacting with our guests.  A lot of the service we provide is just to interact with the guests.  It is not all about getting them to get a picture taken from us.  I really like this because it is not like we are forcing our service down their throats.  The guests can choose whether or not they want to get their picture taken and if they wish to purchase our product.  We are not driven by commission!  Anyway, today we got to go out into Hollywood Studios and take test shots so we can see how we are doing and how our pictures can be improved.  It was a blast, except for the fact that I was told because I am tall, I may have some issues because there will be times  that my crop lines will be off because my height is above the guests. oops.  Guess I have to learn to bend my knees. :)
Off to bed I go.  I have another 9-6 day.  But on Saturday I have a half day, so Brittany and I are gonna go play in the afternoon.  I love it here!  Just in case you couldn't tell.
I have also started Tweeting, so if you wish to follow me, I will send you my Twitter user name!
