Well I did it again.... Shocking

I haven't posted in awhile. It's not that I don't have time too. I do, it's more that when I update and something happens it's only one day so I don't see the point in posting about it. Then I let more time pass and when I go to write another post it would take me forever as so much happened. It seems more of a chore then anything. Now I am on the bus back to vista from work. I charged my phone at work so realy I have no excuse now. I am going to try and remeber what has happened but for some reason over the past month I went from never having plans to always doing something on my days off. I am going to try and remeber main events that happened between the last time I posted and now.

Looking at my last post it was the day before Llauren, Liz and Alex's last day... Well that was a month an a half ago.... Let's start from there and this might have to turn into multi day/post thing. Anyway let's get started. 

So on Alex and Liz's last day I went to Epcot for 11 to watch the merch last day thing they do. After that was all done we walked around the world and made a stop into the uk pavilion to see Llauren in her last day. We took pictures with her and she made us sing O Canada as he filmed us. Imagine 6 or 7 Canadians singing our national anthom in the store of a diffrent country. It looked like she was recording it for us as she was in costume. We definitely got some weird looks from people. We went back to canada for the hand print and boot toss tradition. We went to the uk and got some food and a drink. Then the uk crew met up with us and we hung out in the pub. After awhile we went home as they all still needed to pack more. 

The next day I worked but Llauren and Alex spent the entire day at magic kingdom and they were going to watch wishes. So I met up with them after work. We went on a few rides before watching wishes. Wishes on last days are normally really sad. This was worse because it was the last one because... Well I am the next one to do that. After wishes we went on haunted mansion before catching the end of the electrical parade. We all said our goodbyes before going our seprate ways. 

The next big thing to happen was Carries birthday and Kristals last week. On sept 9th it was Carries birthday. She walked into my room and asked if I wanted to go to typhoon lagoon with her. I said I would go because, well I was suprised she even asked me. As we were leaving at the end of the day I asked Kristal if she needed at help getting ready for the throw out that night. She said she was okay but that I could join her when she went around the world to get her passport stamped. I decided to go with her so I bused to Epcot. I got there in good timing as she was walking out the back of the attraction as soon as I was backstage. We went around the world and even had time to watch the china movie and ride malestom and the Mexico boat ride. We went back to her place as started to get ready. She had so much stuff to give away. Her own stuff and things her roommate left behind. There was a good turn out for her throw out and I was happy about that. I didn't doubt other wise but the fact it was only one person and there was only one person doesn't really happen that often.

The next day it was Kristals last day. I went to the morning meeting with her, I went to the attraction and was there until around 11 when the place opened. I walked around epcot for a few hours before heading back to the attraction for Kristals last things. Olivia did her last spiel and it was amazing, the usual things happened after with the boot toss and such. Then Kristal went off on her own to return her costume. While she did that Amy, Henning and Jess worked on their Duffy, Duffy, Duffy project. We have way to much time on our hands at kid cot. So Amy and Jess came up with this idea, to take a picture with Duffy and get him to hold a Duffy holding a Duffy holding a Duffy. Might seem weird to a normal person but for us, it was the greatest thing to ever happen since we got orange markers. After we all finished colouring those Duffys we went and took our picture with Duffy and Kristal met up with us there. After the amazing picture to forever be remembered was taken we went to Canada to meet up with the other people. We then went drinking around the world ending in Mexico with time to spare before walking back to Canada with a few mins before the fireworks started. After the fireworks we all went to cast serviced and got in a vcab to sea dogs. It's wasn't the typical last day but thats what Kristal wanted and it was a good summary of her entire program. It was a nice night to hang out with everyone. After sea dogs we went to the commons to drop some people off and that is where I said goodbye to Kristal. She was a big part of my program and he leaving wasn't an easy thing.

Well thats all for now!

Have a magical day!


Yes I did finish this post in December... Oh well!

What a strange Disney world I live in

This is a short random post. Last night was games and before we attempted to play a game Carolyn and Carey told us about their crazy day. They ended up going to Hollywood studios and when they went to meet Mickey they had already closed his line for the day. The strange part was Carey had said "after the day I had I just really needed a hug from Mickey to make everything better." Down here that is a totally normal and understandable thing. Try and say that back in canada, people will think you are crazy. For those of us who love Disney enough to go to the parks often. Disney literally becomes your entire life. For example I am currently on the bus back from Walmart. I haven't been in the mood to go to a park the past two days. Now I am in this meh mood and am considering going to mk for a little bit. It's probally because I am so close to the end I am reflecting so much. I didn't quite fit in back home, and I was okay with that. Down here though I finally feel like I belong. I am surrounded by people who get it. This might be the only chance I get to just hop on the bus and go to a park just because, well because you can. Really the only thing holding me back from going to the park yesterday and today is the long bus ride. Other wise I wood be there all the time. Well that's all for now. I will update about what's been going in here soon. 

Untill next time, 
Have a magical day! 


Tuesday, 26 August 2014


Last week was just a normal week here in Florida. On Monday I went to property control and down down Disney then hosted games later that night. On Tuesday I got my haircut then I met up with carey and and we wet to mk. We met Peter Pan, watched dream along with Mickey, watched the parade and saw hall of presidents. After that we went to Hollywood studios and went to meet characters there at the streets of America. We went in star tours and walked around. I went back to vista but she stayed to watch the frozen fireworks. Wednsday I went to Epcot as part of Alex and Liz's last stuff they went drinking around the world. I met up with them around noon and we went on our way. They went to every other country and we ended up splitting into two teams half of us went home early and the ther half state and finished the world and watched the fireworks. There was a group of us Canadians some that I don't get to spend a lot of time with. Llauren from the uk was also there. I was glad I got to spend the afternoon with her. She is really cool and I don't get to see her much. The rest of the week I just worked. On Sunday I had this girl sam's assement day. I had the joys if listening to one of my managers talk about the program and work for an hour. Things that in previous assement a take maybe half an hour. 

Yesterday I went to the water parks with tiz and Kayleigh. Last week Tiz mentioned that the watermarks are free again for cast members. We talked about going and then when we thought about what park to go to we jokingly said "both... TWO PARKS ONE DAY!" We came up with rules based on the regular 4 parks one day chalange. We originally planned to go to blizzard beach but I missed that bus. We ended up going to typhoon lagoon instead. They have this giant clock near the wave pool. We thought we were there for a long time and then assumed that clock was wrong.  It said it was only 12 but we thought it was later then that. None of us had any way of knowing so we decided not to ask anyway. We did everything we wanted and went to the lockers to get our stuff so we could get food. We got to the lockers and it was only 1:13. Seeing as I got on the bus at 10:50 at vista and it took almost 20 min to get there we were all suprised. We decided to actually do the "chalange" because we had so mch time left in the day. We got lunch then took a picture with the park icon. We went to get on a bus to a resort to transfer to another bus to blizzard beach. Turns out after 2 all the busses go to Epcot then we had to transfer there. Eventually we made it to Blizzard beach. The theme is much different but I liked it. It's a smaller park but has more of the thrill rides. We took the chairlift up to this family raft ride, it was so cool! It was really long and went quite fast. We went on a few other raft slides. There was this one that was inclosed. I thought it was going to be really dark and bumpy but it wasn't at all. They had these lights that went along the inside of the tube. It was like a water version of space mountain we decided To go all the way around on the lazy river. It took probally a half an hour... We don't actually know though. After the lazy river we went and got our stuff had a snack took our picture and then went to wait for the bus. I got home and made food and skyped Danielle before games. We played haunted mansion life and we actually finished the game for once! We were all really tired so they went home and I went to bed. 

Today I slept in and then went to property control and cast connection. I went back to my apartment to charge my phone and ate lunch. I organized all my pins too. I bought this thick lanyard planing to put my pins on it. It turns out I have to many big pins so they hardly all fit. Turned out to be a really bad idea actually. I am now on the Walmart bus. I was planing on goig to Walmart then publix but I decided I didn't really need to go to Walmart so now I am sitting on the bus waiting to leave Walmart and go to publix. It takes much longer then walking but we already made our last stop at housing when I changed my mind. Oh well have me time to update my blog! There is a throw out tonight I am going to go to. Then tomorrow it's Alex, Liz and Llaurens last day of work so I will be goig there early for their last day stuff.

Well that's all there is for now!

Have a magical day!

Sheldon's last week

Last week we unfortunately had to say goodbye to a fantastic cast member and friend. Sheldon works in merch and with his extension was here for 13 months. On Sunday I was working until 6:45 I was going to try and get an er but Jess said she might go with me. As she was done at 7:15 I was going to wait. I changed at wated for a little then I went to ask her. Turns out she decided not to come. I went to japan to get food and that took longer then I thought. I shouldn't of gone to japan but oh well. I got there and they were in line for the great movie ride. I waited for a while before Carey joined me and we waited longer for them toget there. We then went on tower of terror and then sat and waited for fantasmic. After fantasmic we went to the bus stop and there was no line and a bus was just pulling up. Monday I had the day off and I just did a few errands to get stuff from epcot for Sheldon. That night was his throw out and games. It was a good night and a nice send off. The throw out part was short just like he wanted. For games we played cards against humanity, I was so excited because I had never played it before and it was worth the wait. The hard part was trying to get all the games back to vista. It was a struggle but somehow we managed. Tuesday was Sheldon's last day at Epcot. We met up with everyone around 4:30. He had a few thigs he wanted to do over the two days we had. We went on a few rides before going to Germany for dinner. I at first thought that I wouldn't be able to eat anything but I was suprised that I actually could eat a lot. It was buffet style and so that helped a lot. We got sat late and so by the time that we got out of the resturant illuminations was almost over. We watched the end and then sat and waited for the crowd to die down before walking to the bus. On Wednesday it was his last day. I went to Epcot before 11 to watch the merch thing they do. They get their certificate at the cart and we all take pictures there. After that Carolyn Carey and myself went on malstrum and then are lunch at the land pavilion before going back to canada to watch Sheldon do his handprint and his boot toss. After we did that we all went on test track (single rider)  and got frozen cokes before going to the front of the park. On the way we talke to this pin trader and I got this wilderness explorer button he made. We then wet over to mk and Sheldon got his ears embroidered. We went on a few rides before watching wishes at the back of the castle. His lists of things he wanted to do was fantastic and it made the day so much better. The rest of the week I just had a regular week at work. That being us to this week and I will update about that shortly! 

Have a magical day!

Jessie McCartney

I just finished finally posting about June and July. While I am on a role I am going to continue with this week so far. 

On Sunday one of the new girls Kathleen and I had planed on going to Epcot for the day. In the morning she texted me saying she had a migrane and really wanted a massage. She asked if I wanted to go. I said yes as I didn't really have a reason not too. Yes it was expensive, but it was someone to go with. We went to the yacht club and then after walked to Epcot to get dinner from morocco. We went over to Norway and got to basically walk on the ride because Kathleen knows someone well enough for us to go in the fast pass line. We walked over to the land pavilion and went on Living with the land. We sat in the land for awhile before going back to the bus. It was a very relaxed day and I am glad I spent it with Kathleen.

Monday Jess, Madeline and I had originally planed to go to AK to become wilderness explorers. I missed the bus by like 10 seconds at vista. I got on a bus hoping to be able to get the bus at Chatham. Jess and Madeline got on the bus at commons. They got off at Chatham because I wasn't there. We sat waiting for a bus for almost 20 min when Jess said she really just wanted a pool day. So that's what we did, we walked to the commons and swam for awhile. After we went to the outlets and had lunch. I went home after and decided to then go to Walmart to get it over with. I went to games at Sheldon's appartment at Paterson. It was a large croud for a change so that was fun. 

Tuesday I slept in and then got ready. Carey, Cassidy and I went to the Jessie McCartney concert at house of blues. Cassidy and I had the day off so we could of gone when ever. Carey had to work untill three so we waited for her. We got to down town Disney by 6 and went to line up. It was less crowded then the bsb concert I went to at first. Later on the plce filled up an it was the same amount of people at both concerts. This girl Guinevere opened for him and she was really good. I think she only has a few songs because she sang three songs by other artists. After she was done we waited another half an hour before Jessie McCartney came on the stage. He puts on a really good show. Considering it was at hob and he is in his comeback time. He is really talented, although not so much in the wardrobe area. The first outfit he had on was this suit jacket (thinner but looked like it) and these weird oleaster pants. He and the two dancers had the same pants. After the second song he was already dropping in sweat. Half way through he did a costume change. Only to out on a t-shirt with a hoodie on top. Not the smartest thing ever, oh well his poor decision. He had a good mix of his new album and old songs that everyone would know. His encore song was beautiful soul. That's really the only option. Such a classic song, although I recently learned about his song body language. That is super classy it's fantastic. Haha over all it was a fun night. The three of us got on the bus back to housing. Cassidy went to the throw out but I just went home. The two girls leaving are not very nice so I decided I would rather sleep then go as support them.

Yesterday and today have been the same old work thing. Nothing really exciting happened there. Oh a new girl is arriving next week and she will have training the following week. It's so weird that she is finally here. She is kristals replacement and I remeber thinking that she was not going to arrive for awhile. 

Yay! I am officially updated!!! (For now anyway) 

Have a magical day!

July 2.0

UGHHH so I locked my phone and forgot about the post. When I wen to add more to it. The app had reset and I lost everything. That means this is going to take longer then I thought to be posted.

After the fourth of July I worked everyday until the 10th. I decided that I was goig to make another trip home for a visit. I went home in February to see my skiing family. This time I went to see my camp family. Although I was doing this I didn't want to spend a lot of time at home. So when I was looking at flights I saw then a few had connections. I ended up getting a flight with an 8 hour layover in Montreal. My plan for this layover was to sit in the airport with a book or do something in the city for a little while. One of the people I use to work with Matt, he lives in Montreal too so that was another option. I pre booked a cab to pick me up at vista. My plan was to go to the ATM at the club house to take out money for the cab before going to the cab. Seeing as I was broke and I left on pay day it seemed like a good idea. Well that ATM didn't work, so I quickly went over to Walgreens to use theirs. Well turns out the person who went into the store right before me was there to fix it. So seeing as there is a cash back limit of $20 per transaction I had to make 3 transactions to get enough. The lady definitely thought I was crazy. I got to the airport and checked in. When I was going through security because I was alone they put me through this testing lane. I feel like they have been doing this testing lane. I didn't have to take my shoes off or my laptop out of my bag. That was okay with me because I didn't have to do any extra work. I had some time to kill before the flight so I wondered around the airport. My actual flight to Montreal was smooth. They don't have tv's on the plane but they do have this app you can get in your phone to get all the same stuff you normally have on those tv's. I got to Montreal and seeing as my phone doesn't work in Canada trying to get in contact with anyone could be difficult. I connected to the wifi while walking to the arrivals area. I was told where to go and what to look for when I got to that area. I messaged Matt telling him I had landed and then again when I was in the arrivals area. The thing is at the pick up area it is to far from the airport that the wifi doesn't work. I was standing there looking for the car. We all know I am awful at knowing what a certain kind of car logo looks like. Some of them I know but most I don't. I was standing looking around and then just when I was going to consider walking towards the airport to get wifi again I see this car driving with Eric (Matt's friend) in the passenger car. We saw each other at the same time. I got in the car and I was so happy to see them both. The three of us went to Tim hortons and sat there for a while. On the way though they occasionally tried to get me to read a sign. Seeing as they are mostly in French I had no idea what I they said. Like I said we sat in timmis for while, I didn't care what we did it was nice to see them again. They harassed me a little over the few hours we were together. Sad to say I missed that, normally it happens to me all the time. Although when Matt left no one has teased me. After Tim hortons we went back to Matt's dad's house. There three of us watched you tube videos and videos from their Nevada trip before Eric had to go home. Matt and I then had an hour before he was going to take me back to the airport. Matt had to go to Ottawa with his mom so he had to drop me off earlier then we both intended too. After Eric left Matt and I talked about the program life back home and just random things. I was nice spending time with him not only because I missed him like crazy. Also because it cemented to me that our friendship is strong enough to last. I was nervous about what would happen but now I know I was again like usual worrying about nothing. After I got to the airport and through security I had two hours to kill. I bought a few thigs in the gift shop and then sat in terminal waiting for the flight. The flight to Toronto was definitely the shortest flight I hae ever been on. It was only an hour maybe a bit less. I was met by my dad in the luggage area and we drove home. It was a bitter sweet thing. I was excited to see everyone over the weekend but I knew the next time that I would be driving home is when I come home in three months. I got home and made Ali come downstars to get her stuff I brought her. We all talked for awhile before going to bed. On Friday I took Ali to get her eyebrows done then we went to whole foods. After that we went home and watched the Lego movie. Partway through my grandma arrived. After her my dad got home from work and then shortly after my mom came home with my grandpa. We all went and sat outside when we waited for dinner to he ready. It was nice to see them again and have a usual family dinner. 

Saturday was the reason I came home in the first place. I left the hose at around 11. I definitey should of left earlier but oh well. It took me about two hours to get to camp with traffic. I got there and everyone was eating after the grad. Even the staff had food that how late I was. I got out of the car and started looking for Danielle. The first person I saw was popit, after I said hi to him more people noticed that I was there. I talked to them until they all had to start cleaning. I wondered around orillia for awhile before I went back to camp. Danielle and I went to the camp site to set up and went to Walmart before going into town for dinner. When we were there we realized how May camp people were there too. After we finished dinner we went and sat at a big table of the staf, most I knew from last summer and years before. After that Danielle, Christian and I hung around town before Danielle and I went to the camp site. The next morning it was raining so we put everything in the car and made another stop at Walmart before going back to camp. I dropped Danielle off then I headed back home. I was there for about an hour before I got back in the car to go dropp Ali off at camp. When I was there I stayed with her until she got signed in. Ben signs her in and it was good to see him again. I then walked around going to the craft barn ad the cabins. I walked down to the waterfront to look at the new dock before starting to make my rounds saying goodbye. That took me an hour, way lover then I expected but I wasn't going to rush it. The next day I stayed around the house relaxing and catching up on stuff I missed. 

After my trip home I didn't really do anything exciting. I had a few more stupid am gard shifts. Other then work I went to a few parks on my days off but nothing special. I did finally get to hang out with my friend Sean though. He works at sorin and was a cp. When he came back down with a seasonal job he ran into so many problems. It was nice to actually get to see him outside of the break trailer and for longer then 5 min. I have been planing the things that I want to do before I leave as I don't have much time left. It's a weird place I am in right now. I have tree months left. It's a lot of time, at the same time not. I am just going to enjoy what time I have left here. Enjoying what I can of Disney and spending it with my favourite people down here. Not really much happened other then that in July that I can think of. 

Well it's now august 7th and so now I will update on the past week in another post. 

Ave a magical day!  


Where did June go?

EjjejejdjwIt seemed like May went on forever, because of this June decided to not show up. Actually though I can't believe it's all ready July. I am going to try and do my best to recap what has happened over the past month.

I eventually did get my back card and so I could finally get proper food. I also bought captain hooks pirate ship. It was so expensive but totally worth it! I also went to the mall every Tuesday two weeks in a row. I was attempting to get my computer fixed. I didn't make an apointment the first week as I just needed to get something else. The following week I made an apointment but for the wrong day. I was going to go the next week but I forgot to make an apointment early enough. The week after was canada day so I couldn't go then. 

I went to a park almost every week. I decided that I should start doing more park things as I don't have forever here. 

The last week if June was full of more goodbyes. Allison had her last day this week but was doing her lasts early because her family would be here for her last week. 
On Monday June 22 was her last animal kingdom day. It was also the only thing I could do because of work. Amy and I met Allison at the commons and she took us to the park. Madeline was also coming but had to go to Walmart first so was meeting us there. We went on tough to be a bug and went over to doing land to go on dinosaur. We went on Everest and a walking trail before heading over to Africa. We went on kilamanjo safaris, my first time this program! We went on the other walking trail and met up with Madeline. We went over to rafikis planet watch. We went in the sound booth and it's the more terrifying thing ever. Of course we had to go hang out with the goats because really why would you go over there for any other reason? We went on the second walking trail before heading over to festival of the lion king. From there we still had time before our dinner reservation so we went on Everest again. We still had time so we went on dinosaur again. That ride honestly get setter every time you go on it. We had dinner at the yak and yetti. It was the first Disney sit down resturant I have been to. After dinner we went to Allison's for a bit before Allison and I went to Mary's throw out. Katie and Matt where skyped in and that was cool. It was a good group of us and it was a very casual thing. I got a degrassi pillow and blanket, along with an award! I was not expecting it at all but it was so cool! That Wednesday was Mary's  last day. I went over to Epcot for 10:30 to be there when merch does their last thing. The managers come over and give them a certificate and the person leaving gets to say a few words. She was getting an er for 2:30 so we had some time to kill before then. We went on a few rides before heading back over. Mary clocked out changed and then tossed her boots. There's this one that went really far to the left and so you can still see it. After that we walked to the boat at ig and headed over to Hollywood studios. We did a few things there before watching fantasmic. The next day Mary was doing a four parks one day thing. I had never done one before and I wante to spend the time with Mary so I took a "mental health day" so I could go. I am really glad that I did. We didn't have te best timing as it took us 8 hours to do two parks but we did it! In the process we made amazing memories and amazing pictures. 

This week was a busy week. Tuesday was canada day so Jess, Madeline and I got dressed up in our canada gear and went over to Epcot. They had free food and my favourite part the canada pins! we are only alowwed to wear the canada Mickey pin on canada day. Although I was not working I did get one for free and I was thankful I didn't have to pay for it! We walked around Epcot getting pictures with so people from different countries. We where in a group that split when some people went home. I went into future world and went on some rides. After that I went home for a by before going to Chatham. The pavilion was having a BBQ and it was a small group but it was good that we did something. After being there for a few hours Sheldon asked if we wated to go to the Paterson pool for a bit. So a group of maybe 6 of us. All merchies other then me went to Paterson. It was a nice way to end the night with my favourite people. 

Wednesday was Allison's and Laura's last day. I was planing on going to Laura's last merchie thing that starts at 11.  I got up in time to go but then I decided that I would just see her later on when I went to Alison's last spiel. I did some thigs in vista I needed to do then I went over to Epcot. Kristal did her last spiel and then went to am gard right after. There was a large group of us and we stayed for Allison's boot toss and the rest of the things she needed to do. After that was all done I went back home for a bit before getting on a bus to Epcot again. I got Starbucks and walke around mouse gear for awhile. I went to the break room to see if anyone else was going to Allison's last fantasmic that night. Realizing no one was going and the fact it was already after 9 I got on a boat and went to HS. It's faster then walking but not by much. I have walked it before but that night I decided to take the easy way. At fantasmic it was me, Allison, Nathan, Kirsten, Britney, Allison's mom and her sister. It was a good send off to such a wonderful girl like Allison. 

Fourth of July was an intresting day. I booke it off a few weeks in advance because there was no way that I wanted to work it with so many drunk people. Nathan knew I had the day off and asked if I wanted to do anythig. We decided to go to Epcot together. When I met him at Epcot though he was with Olivia and wade. Olivia is in the attraction also and wade is in food and bev. They are both really nice I just never thought I would hang out with wade out side of work. In fact I never really talk to wade ever. I met them in mouse gear and then we stared out journey around world show case. By the end of the night we went around world show case three times. We had dinner in Italy. The first time I went to a sit down resturant in world show case. It was something that I never planed on doing but now I can say that I did. We ended up in front of canada to watch the fireworks. There was a large group of food and bev so I stood with the merchies at cart. After it was over I wated in the break trailer with Kim, tiz and Carey. We waited for the croud to die down before heading out. We were in line when some good and bev Canadians pulled us out of line. We tried to get a cab but then ended up just getting rides with other people. There was a pool party going on that night too. I got in the car with the Chatham people so I waited for a bus to go back to vista there. I wasn't planing on going but then on the bus to vista I decided I might as well go. So I ran to my apartment and quickly got changed. Int right back on a bus again to Patterson. When I got there there wasn't a lot of people. More people came and I ended up being thankful that Olivia was there as she was the only attractions person there. I was there for awhile before deciding to leave. Over all it was a good fourths July

So seeing as this post so far has taken me almost a Month. I am going to end this here and continue the next half of June on a new post.

So until next time, have a magical day!

The shortest work week ever

Although nothing exciting happened recently. I have decided to try and update as much as I can again so I don't fall behind like I have in the past. Yesterday I worked from 10:30-7:15. My first normal shift in a long time. Before amateur hour arrived there where only 9 of us. A lot of people where working almost open to close because there's not enough of us. For a few weeks we had 12 of us and it worked out great. Now since sadly the three people have left we are back down to 9. We found out though last Saturday that we have two new girls arriving. This was a suprise to us as normally people will post on the Facebook group, these girls didn't. That will put us back up to 11 people. This was the first day that I worked since the three of them left. It was strange seeing their names on everything. Although it made work more intresting as I was on the look for them all day. After work I went home made dinner and relaxed before going to bed. 

Today I am currently at Epcot. Last week my room ate both of my bank cards. Because of this my urge to shop has gone up because I know I can't. Also with them leaving I haven't had the chance to emotional shop yet. I ordered a new Disney pay role card and it should be arriving either tomorrow or Wednesday. Once it arrived I will be going right to Walmart and then to some Disney store to shop my feelings away. Don't worry parents it is all responsible purchases. Untill then I don't know what to do with myself. Seeing as I just had four days off work I for know what to do. I decided to go to Epcot because I am okay with doing the rides alone. I just went into the art of Disney and thought about everything I am going to buy. Now I am in line for nemo! I think games will me hosted tonight at my apartment. I really want new people to go to gomes more so I can pass down governal general to someone. 

Well it's almost my time to get the the clam shell, will update later! 

Have a magical day!

Star Wars weekends

Yesterday was an intresting day. It was planed that I would go to Matt's house at 10 to say goodbye. He ended up having to say goodbye to someone on their way to work so I met him at the bus stop. We got to his place and he finished organizing stuff and moved everything out of his room. We sat down for a few min waiting for his roommate to get back to vista with his rental car. Once his roommate arrived Matt moved his stuff from his apartment and returned his key and housing id. He got his stuff to outside vista and that's when I said goodbye. I walked back to my apartment trying my hardest not to break down. When I got back to my place Kim was awake and she told me her plan for the day. I decided to tag along as I couldn't just sit at home and do nothing. We were on the bus to mk costuming when I got a message from Carey (not my roommate). She asked if I wanted to join her at Epcot/HS if I get up to it or needs a distraction. I decided to join her but it would take awhile as I was on my way to mk. I went to costuming and then to property control. I found this really awesome hook boat with a snow globe inside. There was also this other Aladdin music thing I was going to get untill I realized I didn't have my canadaian bank card on me. I got on a bus to the ttc and then on a bus to Epcot. When I met up with Carrie we walked over to Hollywood studios. We went on tower of terror and then met up with baby Nate. We looked in darth's mall. I didn't have any money on me so I couldn't get anything. We went and got lunch from pizza planet and then walked around a bit more. We then met up with Daniel from food and bev. He was on a mission to meet characters but as it was raining they where not out. We went and watched the padewon family chalange that turned out to be a lot cooler then I expected. Muffy from that's so raven was te host. Apparently she is the voice of a character on the clone wars but who really cares about that right? After Daniel and Nathan went to meet characters and I sat with Carey as she finished her cupcake she bought. They where in line for darth mall ( or how ever you spell it). We reconigned him but that's about it. We went on the great movie  ride (the best thing in that park). We met up with them after and we walked around a bit more before finding a spot for the fireworks. They had a small stage show where they brought out the characters and then they had the fire works. They where surprisingly good, I was not expecting that. They had fireworks going off to the songs from the Star Wars movies. After those where over Carey and I where exhausted so we went home and Daniel and baby Nate went to see a movie. I got home and ate some food then passed out. All day I was too busy to process that Matt was actually gone. For the past few days and even more so yesterday I kept thinking about things that happened over the past 7 months. I realized that any exciting thing to happen so far Matt has been there. Starlight splash, training, when I became a trainer and so much more. Honestly when Amanda said that when the person you are closest too goes home you tap out, I didn't believe her. Now I kinda do, I also understand why Kristal became super busy when Jeremy left. I know this won't last long but there's a part of me that just wats to go home. I am already thinking about my last few days here and how I will pack up all my stuff. Before I was thinking 5 months wasn't that much time. Now it seems like forever. I keep thinking that Matt and I became close 5 months ago. It went by so fast but it feels like forever. I am currently on a bus to MK, still haven't found my Canadian bank card so this is the next best thing to emotional shopping. Also better for my bank account. I will be there for a few hours untill I am emotionally stable again.
This is also something that you don't fully understand unless you go through it. People can say everything to prepare you  for this momen, it won't do anything. It's just something else to add to the list of things you don't expect untill it happens. So much that happens on this program no one understand unless they have too done this program. People back home may try and userstand but they won't get it. That's okay, that's why the people you work with become your support system because they are goig through it with you. 

Have a magical day! 


Updated bucket list

Before I got down here I made my bucket list. I wrote down everything I really wanted to do. It didn't seem long enough so I googled ideas on what to do. The problem is I haven't really started and I don't have that much time left. I have decided to go through my list and take out the things I'm okay with not doing. Leaving only the ones that are non negotiable.

Have a magical day!

Here we go again

This week we had to say goodbye to so many Canadians. Three in the attraction, two from merch and two from food and bev. It has been a rough few weeks slowly as the time went on it sunk in that they are leaving. With every situation there are people who I was okay with leaving and some who I never wanted to leave. For me that would be Erica from merch and Matt from attractions. Erica was like merch and attractions mom. She is the responsible one with the voice of reason at all times. Over the past few months I have spent more time with her at games I am going to miss her so much. The biggest loss is Matt. Matt quickly became my best friend down here and he taught me so much. Coming down here you learn so much about life and yourself. The people you work with quickly become your new family and you create a bond that you can't create anywhere else and you can never explain to anyone. Other people who have left before this week I was friends with but I wasn't that close to them. Matt leaving has been the hardest thing I have had to go through yet and is the beginning of many difficult goodbyes. Yesterday was their last day of work, I spent a few hours at the attraction and quickly it became time for their last spiels. I walked over to greeter and then went into the pre show to wait for the first spiel to start. Thats when I saw them, some of the merchies who where there for Erica and Julie's last also came. Vicky went first and there where so many people, then by the time that Matt had his last spiel more managers had shown up. The year is full of ups and downs but they truly got the send off they deserved. After they where done work we did the boot toss and then put the rest of their costumes in cast services and thats when we learned how hard it would be to travel in a large group. We had two groups and we where planing to join into one group eventually. That kinda happened but the original attraction group got split into two. We went and saw captain EO and then went on spaceship earth. After that we got on the monorail to MK. We got into the main gates and decided on a plan. We had to take the boat over and that was okay with me, I like it better anyway. Matt suggested that we all get either I'm celebrating buttons or family reunion buttons. He decided on family reunion buttons so Alex went off and got 20 buttons. That was when the rest of us went and got food and sat down for a bit. We then went on pirates and we had our own boat. We tried to take a selfie and as soon as matt had pressed the button the cast member said "No flash photography". Of course the flash went off and we all jokingly made a big deal and "got mad" at Matt. We where going to go on haunted mansion but  Erica's one request was carousel of progress and she couldn't stay after the fireworks. So we started to head over there, because it takes forever for a large group to get sorted out by the time that we where able to get on the ride we wouldn't have time to do both wishes/celebrate the magic and the ride. We came up with a plan and so we went to watch wishes Right after we went on the carousel and thats always a good time. We then walked out of the park as the electrical parade was going on and we saw half of it and the last float we saw was the peter pan float. We saw peter and that was the best way to end the night. We walked to the contemporary and then ran to catch the bus. Over all it was an amazing day, an emotional roller coaster for sure but it was a great last day. Six more weeks until Alison leaves, three months for Kristal and 5 months until mine. It will be hard adjusting to life here without the five of them but hopefully things will get almost back to normal quickly.

Have a magical day!


Starlight splash and Alan Parsons Live project

I know I let it happen again. Its been almost  a month since I last updated. I am doing it now though and this month will have to be broken into three parts.

Starting with starlight splash. Seeing as all the housing events are for the CP's this one was their big end of program event. Disney interational programs buys out typhoon lagoon for a night and they host this big party. They have food, a DJ and fireworks. I normally have Wednesdays off but that day I had to work. It worked out for the best because I ended up going with people instead of alone hoping to find someone. It was so much fun. I heard about the event before and so many people say it's a program highlight. I agree it was one of the best nights so far, I hardly ever spend time with canadians. It was  nice to just hang out and spend time with them. We spent most of the time in the wave pool and we took some amazing photos and videos.

A few weeks ago i had my first am gard shift. I was dreading this as soon as I saw it come up on my schedule. All I knew about it was from when Matt would be forced to go. He said he hated it so much, so it didn't look too promising to me at all. I got there and got a tour of the stage. That was the coolest thing as I love backstage stuff in the entertainment business. I was on the tech both, that means that I had to hold a rope and keep the centre isle clear. It sucked but it will be a lot worse in the summer when it gets really hot. It wasn't that bad, I was done at 8:45 instead of 9:15 so that was a plus.

Have a magical day!

Family visit

Finally updating about something that happened almost tree weeks ago! My family (plus pyper) came to visit me!

This was a bitter sweet thing to happen. I was excited to show my family my new home here at Disney but them being here also marked the half way point of my program. I didn't know what the plan was for them being here untill it was too late for me to book any additional days off. So I only had my three regular days off when they where here. 

On the Friday I took the bus back to vista and quickly made food and packed some things. Then my dad picked me up from outside of vista. He put into the gps the airport and then learned that it's only 20 min's away from vista. My uncle told him it would take 40 min. We had so much time to kill before their flight got in so we went for a bit of a drive. I showed him around the other three complexes. Even though it was dark and you couldn't really see anything it gave him a general over view of the complexes. We then went to the airport. Even though I have only flown into there twice (technically three but I'm not counting 2007) I knew the lay out of the place. We got Starbucks and then waited for them. Once we found them we walked to the car. Thankfully my dad drove so we didn't have to wait for luggage. We got in the car and then where on our way to bob and Julie's. As soon as we got into the car I was already tired of pyper and Ali. They haven't bothered me in so long I guess they just needed it out of their system. When we finally got to bob and Julie's, Bon had already gone to bed so Julie showed us where stuff was and then we went to bed. The next day we got up I made lunch for myself and then dad drove me to work. It took ten min longer then usuall because of how far away they are but I still made it on time. It was just a regular day of work and I can't remeber anything special happening. After work I was in such a bad mood from doing lums. I got in the car and pyper and Ali where too happy and that didn't help. Normally I go home on a crowded bus full of people who just worked all day so they hardly talk. We got back to bob and Julie's and I ate some food while talking to them about the program and my job. Sunday was the same routine as the day before other then I didn't go back to the house. Instead I went to Alex from merch her apartemt for an Easter/goodbye dinner for Alex (two Alex's). 

Monday I had the day off and so we went to Hollywood studios. This is where the frustration began. This is the place where I learned that they really don't care about Disney. We did almost every thing there is to do at Hollywood studios. We didn't go on one mans dream though. That's something I do almost every time I am there. I chose not to do it because I didn't want them (pyper and Ali) to try and ruin it but complaining. So we didn't do it. They don't seem to mind. They probally don't even care. I took them to everything I wanted to other then fantasmic. Fantasmic is this really cool firework show with characters and they project thigs onto water. I asked them many times and they didn't have care if they saw it or not. So I didn't take them to it. At this point I was done with then for the day so they dropped me off at the board walk. I had two hours to kill before our kitchen sink reservation. I took the long way and walked to japan and got some food. I then went back and as I was passing the beach club they had a movie playing in the beach. I went and sat down and watched monsters inc for a bit before finding Erica. When it was time we walked over to the resturant and on the way their found both Alex's and Carolyn. We continued the walk over and when we got there Matt was waiting for us. After finishing the kitchen sink we all got on a bus and went home. 

Tuesday we went to magic kingdom. We got fast passes for the more popular rides then we went on space mountain. We went on almost all of the majour attractions. I even made them go on a few of my favourites. We didn't go on carousel of progress or country bear jamboree like I had planed but they wouldn't of liked it anyway. By the time we did everything we wanted the electrical parade was about it start. Again they didn't care about seeing that or wishes. Celebrate the magic is my favourite thing about the night at MK and we didn't see that either.  They just wanted to go home. So we did, the last of enthusiasm about it all made me not want to push them.

Wednesday was the day I was looking most foward too. I had te day all planed out the way I wanted to do everything. Of course that didn't happen. Not much I could do about that. We rode space ship earth, nemo and unfortunately figment. We then went on captain EO. My favourite tog in all of Epcot. Something I had been looking forward to showing them since I first saw it 5 months ago. We went on then when we got off nothing. No reaction at all! I loved it and if it wasn't something that made me so happy I would of gotten mad at them. We then went to canada and watched the movie. Well they did as I stood at the back talking to kristal. After that my mom took a picture of us in front of the garden in canada. It's a beautiful spot don't get me wrong. It's like taking a picture infront of your garden at home, it's just weird. We then went and walked around world showcase. I was planing on making them see all the shows but when we got to France that didn't happen. I was getting annoyed with them. Ali and pyper went and asked the cast member how long untill the show. He said 18 min and they both went "never mind". I HATE THAT SO MUCH!! WHEN PEOPLE DO THAT TO ME I THINK THEY ARE SO RUDE! The nice cast member said to them they could look around and come back. That's exactly what I was planing on doing untill I forgot... We didn't watch American adventure as it wasn't going to start for a half hour and I don't love it enough to wait that long. We did the boat rides though and that was fun. We then went back into future world. We did some more rides there. When we circled back to the land and they went on sorin' I went to canada to wait for them. I'm sorry but I'm not waiting that long for a ride I don't think is that great. Once they got back to canada it was almost time for the fireworks. At this point I was fed up with their lack of enthusiasm about everything and I was super tired. Just as the fire works where starting I left to go home. Not the best thing for me to do but I couldn't take it anymore. 

On Thursday I had work but first I let the girls into animal kingdom. We went on dinosaur and expedision Everest twice before I went off to work. They picked me up from work and then went back to the house. 

Friday I slept in as the girls where planning on gojng to DTD and I didn't really want to spend money. We went to work and I was almost late but I made it with 5 min to spare. Work the the same as normal and then I spent the night at the house for one last time. 

Saturday was their last day. I had to get up a bit earlier to bring my stuff back to vista. We went to work from there and that's where I said goodbye to my dad. After that I was off to work and that ended their trip to orlando. 

As nice as it was to have them here it was frustrating and annoying at the same time. I understood that my mom and dad where just here to visit me and that's okay. Ali and pyper though I thought where here for the Disney side of it. The first time we went under the arch way should of been my clue to how the rest of the trip would go. Before I even knew I was coming down here I dreamed about coming here. I looked up so much planed many vacations and such. I wasn't expecting them to be that into it but at least have an idea of what goes on at Disney world. When we went under the arch I turned and said to Ali and pyper "it's the first time seeing that sign!!". The only response I got was from pyper when she said " it's not our first time seeing it". I tried to get some excitement out of them by saying "well the first time this trip!!". Nope nothing, they kept talking like we where no where special. GIRLS WR ARE AT DISNEY WORLD! I still sometimes get goosebumps and my heart flutters when I see that sign. I've been here for six months and I'm often on my way to work. Also when we saw Mickey at HS. I have never seen Mickey that close other then when I first got here. I pointed him out the the girls and they where like "oh, yeah" and kept walking. YOU ARE STANDING SO CLOSE TO MICKEY MOUSE AND YOU DONT CARE AT ALL!! I get butterfly's and nervous when I see him. After all he is my boss.  That's how the entire trip went. When ever I would ask what they wated to do and they said they didn't care. They ment it, they really didn't care! Look, I get it not everyone loves Disney as much as I do but I feel that they didn't appreciate it at all. I bet if the three days I had off we didn't go to Disney. Or at all during the trip they wouldn't of cared. I understand that people don't like to meet characters. I don't really like it rather but it's all part of the magic. I love this place so much and I am around people who may not love it as much as me but they still like it. 

Down here you are in your own little world. I have six months left and I don't know what I am going to do after. Yes living here is like being in high school. There is always drama in the attraction but that's going to happen. No matter what I love it here so much and it's something that I can't explain. The fact my family doesn't really care about Disney is something that I need to accept and love on from. Seeing as there is so much they like doing and I don't have a passion for.

Well now that I have finally updated and had my rant about them being here I should end this post and move on to the next one. 

Have a magical day!

Update soon!

I know I haven't updated in a long time. Two weeks ago my family was here and I was waiting for a day off to post about their visit. For some reason I didn't the week after they left. I was planing on writing on Tuesday but I ended up hanging out with someone who was goig home soon instead. I will be updating on quite a lot. I think I might start the update today and slowly work on it. I haven't decided yet what I will do. Just wanted to post to say I haven't forgotten about this blog again!

Have a magical day!

Wilderness lodge and stuff

I know I said I would be updating every day again but it's hard when work is so boring. I know no one will want to read it as much as I don't want to write it. I am currently at wilderness lodge so I decided it was a good time to update. Like I said work has been boring. In a way that's good, no drama or anything like that. Saturday was a good day because it went by super fast, everything ran smoothly, there where still open seats on the 9:30 bus and we took the fast way home. To bad it wasn't my Friday, Sunday (my Friday) went by super slowly. It wasn't just me with that opinion, everyone working that day said the same thing. Finally though my work week was over and time for yet another uneventful weekend.

Monday I surprisingly got up early. No don't really remeber what I did. I just hug around the house. Eventually I decided I needed to get out of the house. I took the bus to Chattam wich took forever! The bus was so hot I drank my entire wate bottle before even getting to Chattam. Finally after the usual 20 min I got there and off the bus. I walked to publix and got Oreos, poptarts, ice cream and to be healthy 1/4 watermelon.  I got back to my apartment, ate half the tub of ice team as it was melted. Put it in the freezer and then maybe not even 20 min later ate the rest of it for dinner. Not the healthiest I know, but it had almonds in it so that counts for something right? I watched glee on my computer untill it was time to go to games. It was Erica, Sheldon and myself small but mighty group. We played pandemic for the third week in a row and this time we saved the world! We where one turn away from loosing but it was okay we made it anyway and saved the world!! After the game was over we still had some time so we talked for awhile before Erica and I went back to vista. 

Tuesday I woke up late and it was raining. I took my time getting ready and just say around the appartment all day. Someone from housing came by to see if they fixed our shower from the original problem. I told him about the fact our spout was broken. He came back and fixed it himself. So now after three days we can have a proper shower! Other then that I didn't do anything exciting. I got caught up on shows I haven't seen for while. It eventually stopped raining and the sun even came out. I kinda felt bad for not doing anything but that didn't last long. 

Today, Wednesday. I had it in my head that I would go to the magic kingdom today. I woke up at a decent time and got ready for the day. I got the bus to Chattam to go grocery shopping at publix. I got back home and put away the food while making my lunches for the week. After that I went to the bus stop to wait to go to wilderness lodge. I have never been there and my goal is to step foot in every Disney resort hotel so I decided to go. I also remeber when we where planing our vacation last time that i really wanted to stay at that hotel. I still do and I am planing in spending a night there soon. I got there and it was like a dream come true. I don't think I have ever gotten so excited about going into a hotel before. I walked in and it is just like I imagined it. I walked around for a bit and then went and sat at the beach looking out at the water. It's a man made lake but it is still cool to look at. They also have boat rentals so it was more like being at Marco with the sound of boats in the water going past. I then walked over to the boat transportation but the line was long and I didn't see a boat so I thought it would be faster to walk and take a bus. So that's what I did, I walked over to the bus loop and that's when I started this post. After waiting for awhile a bus finally showed up. I got on and on the way to mk ghostbusters started playing and then don't you forget about me from breakfast club played after that. I didn't listen to the entire thing as we got to mk really quickly. What made it even better was the fact that as soon as I got off the bus colours of the wind started playing. I knew that it was going to be a good afternoon. I walked around mk literally. I walked from tomorrow land to fantasy land, then to liberty square and then skipped frontier land and went right into adventure land. I then walked out of the park and got on a monorail. All the ride lines where too long for me to do anything by myself. I could of but I didn't really want to go on anything. I got on the monorail to the ttc and then to Epcot. I went on captain eo and then by that time it was 7:15. I walked to cast services got on the bus and headed home. I made myself dinner and then made cookies. I talked to the roommates for awhile before finally deciding to go to bed. Over all it was the most productive day I have had in awhile. 

Have a magical day!

Richard Gormley

Yay two days in a row!!! Today I had work from 12:30-9:15. I got there and when Kirsten pulled rotation at 12 matt was end of rotation so he came back into the trailer. He did not look impressed at all, that scared me a little. As I mentoned yesterday it was Jeremy's last day. Jeremy wanted to do stuff around the attraction to mess us up the day after he left. I knew this so I texted Kirsten and told her to take the kid cot stamps so he couldn't take them. I told her that he also wanted to take a mic. We have a new mic in the pre show. I hate it, it's like a trucker mic the one with the button on the side... It sucks. You can hear yourself talking more and when you are at greeter it sounds like the person is talking into a tin can. Anyway... Kirsten loves this mic and so she didn't want him to take it. She hid that mic but left the stamps. So like he said he I'll both kidcot stamps. He also apparently trashed the office. I understand wanting to make an impact when you leave but there is no need to be an ass about it. When Madiline and I started at 12:30 it was all okay. We had one call in so there where five of us. That's okay but the first hour and a bit is difficult when an opener calles in. Other then that the day went smoothly. Nothing exciting I report other then the new mic really! After work I did laundry and now I am laying in bed listening to music. Even though I can sleep in tomorrow I am going to bed now and not stupid late. It's like back in high school. When you can sleep in on Wednesdays you go to bed three hours later on Tuesday night. Doesn't make sense but it happened every week!

Have a magical day!

I'm back!

I know I haven't been blogging recently. I think the problem is that I haven't been caught up since the beginning of February. I just didn't realize until now that I haven't updated since my trip back to Canada almost two months ago…. I am currently looking through my journal to see if there is anything that happened recently to update about. If not I will just get back on track with updating about my past three days off.

Looking back there is nothing that has happened too exciting to write about. I have gone to Epcot more times then I would have liked too. I went to animal kingdom twice and other then that I have spent all three of my days off sitting at home doing nothing. I always feel guilty for not going out and doing something but I don't really feel like going to a park alone. Next week I think I will go to magic kingdom as I haven't gone in two months if not longer. I always think I should do something but then every week I find myself doing the same stuff. Going grocery shopping one day and then doing nothing on my other days off.

We have had a few attractions cast members go home since the last time I updated. Leah and Zac finished their programs at the end of February. I was sad that Leah was leaving but Zac on the other hand I was okay with him leaving. He was a nice guy but at times could be a total ass. The next person to leave was Jenn, she self termed in the weirdest way possible. We still don't actually know what happened to her or for sure why she self termed. We think she tried to screw us over at work by not self  terming properly, that didn't work. We where short one person during opening but then by 12:30 we where fine and the day went smoothly. The best story I have heard about her leaving was that the earth parted Jenn fell in and then closed back up. The latest person is Jeremy. I am super sad about this one because Jeremy always makes work so much fun. We just give each other a hard time about everything and it makes the day go by so much faster. One bad thing about Jer is his NFG attitude about work. He didn't every really care about the job but he is a good cast member when it comes to guests. The thing is when he is around I don't care as much and I start to slip on being a good cast member. So that I guess is one good thing about him leaving now. He was only going to be here until the end of May like Vicky, Nicole and Matt.

Other then that I have become an official Disney trainer. I had the interview a few days after I got back from Canada and then found out I was accepted a few days later. Seeing as a few fellow cast members didn't get their proctor code (the trainer code) I wasn't celebrating yet. A few weeks later I had my train the trainer class and that was basically just common sense stuff about how to train people. Nothing I haven't done before but it was a good refresher I guess. The next day we had our proctor code class. That was just some e-learning before setting up our password. Oh yeah I did both of those classes with Kirsten, fitting as we have done everything so far together. The next day we had our shadow day, basically it's a day where you follow a trainer around learning how to be a trainer in your area. Sounds helpful if it's done right. See there was myself, Kristal and Kirsten all shadowing Allison. That was off balance to begin with, then add in the fact that she was training no one and that was just a disaster waiting to happen. I did learn stuff about being a trainer, the thing is that didn't take all day. We helped out in the attraction for an hour and then after that we learned a bit and then went on our first break and when we got back we did some more stuff and we where all done for the day and we still had an hour and a half until we could take our next break and then a few more hours after that to do something. during our second break I was going crazy from not doing anything, I asked Allison and then Kristal and I went for a walk around the attraction. That ended with us talking outside the back of the attraction about stuff for almost an hour. I don't really know what happened after that but it was the end of the day so I got on the bus and headed back to Vista.

Now lets talk about the past three days.
Monday: I made the trip to whole foods. Its about a 15 min walk to get there from Walmart. Getting to Walmart is already like a half hour bus ride, sometimes more. I walked around whole foods for a bit and then walked back to walmart. By the time I got on the bus home I had been gone for 3 hours already. I just got home, unpacked all my stuff and then relaxed for the rest of the night, talking to Nicole about what the plans where for the next day.

Tuesday: Monday was Matts birthday but he had to work so I didn't see him. The plan was that Nicole, Matt and I where going to hang out and do something. I had a gift to give him and so did Nicole. I slept in and took my time getting ready for the day. I also made vegan poutine, turned out way better then expected! I was doing this so that I wouldn't go crazy waiting for Matt to text us if he wanted to hang out. I texted him about other stuff and then we talked about us hanging out. It ended up that I went to his place and we watched a random youtube videos and 3/4 of the rocky and Bullwinkle movie before turning it off. After that I went back to my apartment journaled while making dinner and then Carrie came home from work and she was followed by Carolyn and Sheldon. We sat and talked for a bit before I left to get the bus with Matt and Nicole. I could of taken a ride with Carrie but I told them I would take the bus and there wasn't room in her car for everyone. We found Baby Nate when we where on the bus and he joined with us. On the walk to Paterson from Chatham  we watched the video Nicole made Matt for his birthday, it was fantastic!!!! We then got to the throw out and all almost died from how hot it was in that apartment. It was a big turn out as 7 people are leaving this week.

Today: Today I was planing on going to Epcot and go with Jeremy and some other people and he drank around the world one last time. I know he had other plans too of things to do around the attraction and as much as I wanted to see if he followed through on any of them I also didn't want to be apart of that. I ended up staying home and getting a few things I needed from Walgreens. Did some more journaling and now I am writing this blog in between Degrassi episodes. Currently it is 8:59pm, my plan for the rest of the night is to finish this degrassi episode, then going to bed super early so that I can wake up early and do laundry before work tomorrow and I put off doing it today!

Thats all for now! Now that I am updated I will try and update every day like I was before!!

Have a magical day!

Fast forward…. to canada

So I haven't been to hard on myself for not posting as I have been trying to write in my journal as often as I can. I looked at what I wrote and nothing was worth posting so I decided to fast forward a bit to Feb 13th and my weekend at home.

Thursday Feb 13th:

 I left the apartment at 4:00am and got in the cab to the airport. Check in took 2 seconds and then I went to security and that also took only two seconds. I bought a few things at some stores and then journaled waiting to get on the flight. The flight was really short it only took 2 hours to get there because of the wind. They said the flight might be bumpy but it wasn't at all. When I saw my dad we got in his car and drove to aurora. He had to pick up his new car from the office. On the way home we stopped and went to get a burger but we got more then that. Two of the employees where fighting with each other, so very exciting we would never see that at Disney. We then went got a new bank card and then went home. I relaxed at home for a bit before leaving to go get new canadian flag stamps and then we went and got Ali and pyper from school. Eventually Grandma and Puppa came over for dinner. It was nice to see them again I missed them. We sat around eating dinner watching the Olympics talking. It was like I had never left.

Friday Feb 14th:

I ended up sleeping in really late so all I did was get up shower and then drove to Collingwood. We dropped the cats off at the condo and then went to metro. Once we got back mom and Ali got home. We sat around for a bit before leaving to go to dinner. We went to the hungry sumo, as always it was fantastic. After dinner I just sat in my room watching tv getting ready for the exciting days of skiing!

Saturday Feb 14th:

We got up and left the house at 8:00, dad dropped us off at the south lodge and then I went to the snow school area. I talked to Jeff for a bit before saying hello to Mo. I said hello to a few other people before sitting on Ali's lap in the snowboarding area for the meeting, the only time I will ever do that! After the meeting I went to the base lodge and had coffee with my dad (well not really I don't drink coffee). We put our ski stuff on and then went out for a few runs. We then had lunch and then went back out with mom for an hour before going in for the day. I sat in the base lodge for a while before like normal going into the south lodge. After that the usual watching Tv and then going to bed.

Sunday Feb 15th:

Today was a better day. I had a goal to ski all of the runs before I could be done for the day. I went to the snow school meeting again and after went and put my ski stuff on. Dad and I did almost half of the hills before going in for lunch. It was to crowded so we decided to just go back out and finish all of the hills before lunch. After lunch I sat in the south lodge talking to Mo. After that I just went back to the condo and relaxed for the rest of the night like normal.

Monday Feb 16th:

I don't really remember what happened as I didn't journal and I don't want to go into much detail as I have a few more days to catch up on. We got up had a big breakfast and then went skiing. Ali had a few lessons but we managed to go for a few runs together. After that we went back to the condo packed up and went home.

Tuesday Feb 17th:

Today was a stressful day and I don't realy feel like writing about it again. All the really matters is that I got back to orlando safe. Not on time because the flight was delayed but safe.

Have a magical day!


Vista wayyyyy

Sunday Feb 2nd:

Work was okay. Later that night it was Katie’s throw out. I didn’t realize it would take me a half hour to get to the apartment so I was almost 30 min late… I thought I had a lot of time when I got home from work. Turns out time goes faster then I thought. Everyone was obviously there for while when Carolyn and I walked in. It was still nice to go and say goodbye to Katie.

Monday Feb 3rd:

It was a normal day at work. Carolyn and I went to games. It was where’s waldo at the boardwalk/ Epcot resorts. It was my first games and I only went because it was Kaitie’s last. I was done at 9:15 and Carolyn was done at 9:30. Carolyn was changing and then as she walked out of the washroom I got a text from Matt. He was asking if I was coming. I was so confused, turns out Mary told Matt I was playing. So we walked over and caught up with Matt, Mary and Erica. The five of us went off trying to get points. The game had a really easy concept, take a picture with something from the list to get points. Find Waldo herself and get 500 points. Carolyn and I where so thankful we where with the other people as we would of gotten so lost. We never did find her, we met up with her in the spot where she was hiding. After that we just took the bus home.

Tuesday Feb 4th:

I had the day off and because I had left my stuff at EPCOT from the day before I decided to go and have an EPCOT afternoon. I got the bus over and then picked up more costumes. I walked over to the break trailer and saw Kristal. After that I went over to Captain EO. I decided to do everything that takes a long time or stuff I know not everyone will like. I wanted to kill as much as time as I could so I could take the bus with the closers home. After I did everything I wanted to do in future world I walked over to world showcase as I wanted to go to japan for dinner. I went into the china store, my favourate store in wsc. Then I continued on to Japan for dinner. I called my parents and then continued my walk and by the time I had gotten to Canada it was only 7 or almost 7 I cant remember. I had the plan to go visit kidcot and then go on nemo before going to sit in the trailer. That didn’t happen I ended up staying at kidcot almost till close. I then walked over and saw Matt at greeter and then we went and sat in the trailer until Sheldon showed up. The three of us walked out of the park at our own pace so that was nice not having to rush like I normally have to. When we left cast services we saw Zac in Jeremy’s car. He told us to get in and he would drive us home. Allison and Kristal took Sheldon home as he lives in Paterson. On the way back to Vista Matt asked if I wanted to see the new vista apartments. I went into it thinking it couldn’t be that amazing, for vista it was fantastic. The best part is that there are TWO FRIDGES!!! I don’t want to have to move to another third floor apartment, but for two fridges I will move anytime! The sooner the better but still.

Wednesday Feb 5th: 

I got up cleaned the apartment and then walked to wholefoods, I then finished my shopping at Wal-Mart. When I got home I unpacked my stuff and then skyped Ali for a few hours. I went to Walgreens with Kim and then to the clubhouse. We had another girl’s night in.

Thursday Feb 6th:

This morning Kim and I went to get our haircut at the outlets. We walked around there for a bit before going back to the apartment.  I watched Elf while writing in my journal. I then watched another movie, yes I know my life is exciting recently. There was a housing event but I decided to not go to it and just stay home. I shockingly went to the gym and ran on the treadmill for 30 min. When I got home I made dinner and watched the Olympics while skypeing with my family.

Have a magical day!

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas…

Okay, no it's not but it was the first thing I thought of when deciding to come up with a title for this post. I feel like I really should stop apolagizing for when I don't write in while. So I will do a quck update before bed.

Friday- Monday: Work nothing exciting that I can remember.

Tuesday: Kim and I where going to go to a park but we decided to sleep in instead and and we just relaxed at home and then we did something but I don't really remember what we did to be honest…… Oh well!

Wednesday jan 29th: Kim and I went to Hollywood studios with this guy I met, he is from NZ and he work on main St. USA. He said he would text me when the bus was on its way to vista. He texted me and there for giving me only 15 min notice. Kim wasn't ready at all so we got on the next bus. Once we got there I had to be the guide. I hate being the guide because I don't want to make someone do something they don't like. Seeing as Kim has only been there once and Kenny has never been I didn't have much choice. The first thing we did was go on the great movie ride. I love that ride so much! The bimbo's though didn't realize it was an actual ride…. They where so surprised when the doors opened and they saw the ride. They thought the entire thing was the movie clips in the que, stupid people. Anyway, we had the cowboy which was new. After that we went on star tours, it was a little too rough for Kenny and Kim but I loved it. We then met woody and buz and then got food. Kenny announced that he wanted to say for fantastic while Kim and I really didn't want to. We went to watch Muppet vision and thats always amazing. A few other things we did was, Rockin' roller coster, toy story, looked around one man's dream. We went to the ABC place and got a drink and just talked. We persuaded him to not go see fantastic and wait until it is warmer! When we got the looooong bus ride home, Kim and I went to the apartment then to the club house. We rented some movies and then watched something borrowed while eating food. It was a nice way to end the day.

Thursday jan 30th:

I slept in super late I got up at 1, I was so afraid I would be groggy because of over sleeping. My plan was to go to the outlets and then the dollar store. Instead Carrie wanted to go to this different dollar store and because she is sick she didn't want to go alone. I spent way more then I wanted to but what ever… I put my stuff away and then went to the outlets. Once I got home I just relaxed and talked to monica.

Friday jan 31st:
I had work at 2:30 as it was EMH. The last two hours didn't drag on like they normally do which is good.

Saturday Feb 1st:

Nothing exciting happened and it was just a normal day at work.

Have a magical day!
