003 - 3/18/10

Today has been entirely too long. My flight left this morning at 1:15, and I could NOT sleep. It was so horrible. I've never taken a red eye flight before, and I doubt I ever will again. Everyone on the plane was passed out, except me of course. I decided to attempt to watch New York, I Love You. However, about halfway in, I got really sleepy, so I turned it off, thinking I would sleep. I was wrong!

However, I made it safely to Delaware, and I'm so excited to be here! I've missed my best friend a lot. Living on opposite sides of the country will do that to you! Tomorrow we are thinking we might go to this awesome outlet mall on the beach about 45 minutes from here, but it depends on how well her baby boy handles the day. Today, he decided to cry anytime we were in the car. It didn't bother me any, but at one point I was on the phone with a Disney recruiter, and I felt a little bad.

Speaking of my recruiter, she was my savior today! I called her two days ago because I was needing to leave June 14, which is considered Fall Advantage Quarter. When I called, she was already out of the office, and then she was gone yesterday. Today, when I talked to her, she said it was no problem and changed things for me! I was SO relieved, especially because June 7 is no longer available! Then, I asked her what I needed to do regarding my phobia of loud noises, since it was an issue for my last CP. She told me that she was going to put a note in my folder that I needed to be placed either in resorts or waterparks so that I don't have to deal with any fireworks shows or anything. That worked out great, because I really want to be in either the resorts or waterparks anyways, as I've already done working in the parks at Disneyland. I also told her that I have both previous barista experience and experience working in an ice cream shop, and that I would love to be placed in something along those lines if possible. She told me that of course, nothing is guaranteed, but that it was in my notes. She definitely helped me feel a million times better about the role I've accepted, and I can't wait for June 14 to get here!

Now, I just need to focus on my awesome spring break with my awesome best friend, and take things one day at a time!

On one final note, I just started reading Cast Member Confidential, and I've got to say, so far it's an excellent book. Granted, I'm only on page 39, but still!
