I’m almost too tired to post but I don’t want to leave you all in the dark or get too far behind. I think I left off on Thursday so I’ll start there. That was my first day of actual job training which consists of 5 full days. My training group has only 7 members all of who are super awesome. On the first day we learned a lot of the rules and regulations of the job. We all got to try on pieces of our costumes—that was interesting. Friday was the first day in full costume. It seemed a little unreal at first but we all became pretty comfortable with our new jobs.

Saturday was our first day out in the parks. I was Donald Duck’s friend that day and got to interact with a lot of guests. He is considered a VIP along with Minnie, Mickey, Goofy, Pluto and sometimes Daisy so I was really busy. My work schedule wasn’t too bad because I’m only outside for a short-while with Donald before I get a 30 min break. However, in training it really isn’t a break because we are going over more rules and stuff at that time. I had a lot of fun that day—Donald’s butt cracks me up when he walks, you’ve got to see it! I was super tired and very hungry when the day was finished. The days go by really quickly but take a lot out of you. But even considering that, this still feels like summer camp to me instead of my actual job because it’s so much fun.

Today (Sunday), I was friends with Suzy one of Cinderella’s mice helpers. She is fun to be around because she wears one of those really large hoop skirts and it’s fun to watch her move and dance in it. The little girls love to give her BIG hugs and dance with her. Thursday through Saturday I worked 8:30 to 5:30 and today I worked 8-5. At this point, I’m just plain EXHAUSTED. I got home by 5:45—ate dinner and fell asleep around 6:30. I was woken up by all of my roomies getting home around 8:30. I’m still tired but want to try and stay up until at least 10:30 so that I’m able to sleep through the night. I’m supposed to be back to work at 8. I can’t wait for my days off on Thursday and Friday. They seem forever away. Next week I’m off Friday and Saturday so I’m getting pretty good days off. I hope it stays like that (but it probably won’t) so I can fly back to Raleigh for 2 days in October. I will have SOO many stories to tell by then. I already have quite a few but can’t share them through my blog :(

I still haven’t gone to the parks because I haven’t really had the time but hopefully I’ll make my way over there on one of my days off. The other day I’m going to spend at the pool because I’m starting to lose my tan and that is NOT acceptable in Florida lol. Tomorrow is my last day of training. WOOHOO! But I’m kind of sad that I’ll be leaving my training group-I’ve really grown to like my fellow trainees but I’m sure we’ll all keep up. The boys live in the same apartment complex as me and the girls aren’t too far away. One of the guys knows all of Lady Gaga’s dances by heart and is really good at performing them—it is really entertaining to watch.

Well I think that is all I have for now. If you guys have any specific questions for me—feel free to ask, I’m not sure what you want to hear. If I can’t answer it on my blog I’ll try to send it in a message.

Hope you’re all having a magical night!
