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!
