The End Draws Near

So as the program comes to an end, I’m realizing I’m really going to miss just about everything here. Well I could live without the 4:30am alarm for the breakfast shifts but, besides that, everything else. I’m going to miss hanging out with all of my furry friends, especially Minnie Mouse. I love her flirtatious personality. I won’t miss Duffy. Screw that bear, hahah jk. I’m going to miss the 2 am trips to ihop with my Disney Friends. I don’t know what I’ll do without Alyssa—she is like my twin. She’s the first friend I’ve had who I can easily trade clothes with—very exciting. After working for Disney, I’m not going to know what to do with myself when I’m not at work. I won’t have rollercoasters to ride or characters to play with on my days off. My roommate is laughing at me as write this because I’m tearing up and Alyssa is screaming in the background for me to stay. Oh what I’d give to be able to many mixed emotions. It really is bittersweet, as I do miss my friends back home terribly and I’d like to be able to go home for the weekends again. I wish we had a sweet tomatoes in chapel hill, I’m slightly addicted to that restaurant but I guess I can live with noodles and chipotle.

Since my last update, a lot has happened so much that I can’t remember it all...haha but I do remember getting a fanatic card. A fanatic card is recognition for going above and beyond what is expected at work. I received one for extending on Thanksgiving day. I was scheduled to work 7am-6pm but ended up staying until 11pm because Minnie Mouse needed help with dinner at Chef Mickey’s. I went to a formal with coworkers, it was nice to be able to get dressed up, take pictures and go dancing. It reminded me of chapel hill briefly. I’ve also completed my leadership class and got my Mouseters Degree in the leadership series (Cute right?? I know.) I feel like I was able to take away some valuable information from that class. I’ve learned that when it comes to approaching conflicts I need to be less of a competitor and become more of a collaborator and/or compromiser. I’m a really headstrong individual and need to take a step back once in a while.

Today was the CP graduation...we all got our ears and took pictures with Minnie and Mickey in their caps and gowns. This would be my first graduation that I haven’t completely broke down and cried. I actually had a lot of fun and enjoyed spending time with the roommates and friends. There is only 3 weeks left of the program and I’m going to take advantage of all my free time and appreciate the amazing job that I have. There is so much left on my list of things to do that I know I’m going to run out of time so, I’m definitely going seasonal. I’m planning on making a trip down here in March and May and if Graduate school doesn’t work out Disney could be my new home as soon as June 2011. I’m going to leave you all with a few photos...

Oh wait first...funny story...

Little Boy to Princess Tiana: Princess Tiana I can dougie.

Princess Tiana: Dougie? Hmm whats that? Could you teach me how to dougie?
