In case you’re still unsure, this whole College Program thing is exhausting. Fun, but exhausting. So even though I love updating my blog, I just don’t seem to have the time anymore. I’m hoping to sit down in the next few days and write some full-length catch-up posts, but just in case that doesn’t happen, here are a few thoughts and tidbits that I just feel the need to record. I’m too tired for segues!
Today was our CP completion program, a.k.a. Graduation Day! There was a huge picnic at Mickey’s Retreat, we all got graduation mouse ears and diplomas, and got our picture taken with the boss. Tons of fun! It lasted from 10:30 to 2:00, but we didn’t get there until around 12:30. They had so much fun stuff to do, I wish we had gone earlier. I went with all of my roommates, and we had a great time goofing off, taking pictures, and just hanging out. I love these girls, and I got a little emotional about leaving for the first time today.
I’ve been working insane hours since I moved to Tomorrowland. I almost never go in earlier than 5:00 pm, and if I get off before 1:15 am, that’s an early night. Yesterday I worked for more than 14 hours, but I only have myself to blame. One of the girls from work was trying to give away her shift because she had family in town, so I picked it up. I already had a shift of my own that day, so I ended up working from 9:00 am to 11:45 pm. It was exhausting, but I also have to admit that it was a little exhilarating. As I clocked out, I really felt like if I could survive that, I could survive anything. It was a really good day for it though, because I was working at Space Mountain, and it went down four times. So it wasn’t a very busy day, and one of the times it went down I was at Preview so I just sat on the big comfy couches for almost an hour waiting for the ride to come back up. I’m telling you, this can be a rough job. 🙂
The insanity is about to end, though, because all 6 of us who came to Tomorrowland after Food & Wine Festival are being sent back to Animal Kingdom. I was really upset at first, because they weren’t sure if we would all be together. But it turns out we’ll all be in Asia together, so at least I won’t be totally surrounded by strangers for my last couple of weeks. Right now we’re only deployed there for the week of Christmas, but they may deploy us for the week of New Year, too. We’ll just have to wait and see. I’m definitely excited to have some normal hours!
In honor of leaving Tomorrowland, here’s a picture I should have posted a long time ago:
