056 - 7/9/10

So, let me try this again. I really want to get an update on my life for all of you, but it seems to be much easier said than done. However, today we have no water until noon, so I've got nothing to do for about another hour. You really don't realize how much you use water until you don't have it.

As far as work goes, I did all my morning training last week, and so far I've had a day in dining room and at salad without a trainer. Both days I was told I did a good job, so that made me feel good. Morning shifts kicked my butt though. In order to get to work at seven, I have to wake up at 5:15 and catch the bus from here at 5:45 or 6 (I can't remember exactly). Then, once I get to TTC, I have to transfer to the first B route bus of the day, which doesn't get me to work until 6:43. For those of you that know me, you know I hate being late for work. Especially at Disney. I currently have a point and a half on my record card, and its from the day I was termed on my last program. I didn't even know it was there until I got down here. Anyways, I'm the person that always gets to work like 45 minutes early, because I don't trust these buses for anything. So, having a bus get me to work fifteen minutes early makes me really nervous. However, my first two days of doing this, I had no issues. The morning of July 2, the bus driver decided to be TWELVE minutes late, which meant that he didn't even show up until 6:52. Of course, I'm already incredibly frustrated, but I figure I'll still get to work on time, because Wilderness is his first stop. Does that happen though? Of course not. Instead of going to Wilderness, he decides to "do a favor" for a guy on the bus, and go to the Grand first! That's the third stop, not the first! Being the person I am, I ask the bus driver why he didn't go to Wilderness, and then point out that three of us need to be there at seven, as opposed to the one guy going to the Grand. The bus driver then decided to yell at me, and tell me it was his choice (which it isn't, I asked another bus driver). I yelled right back, because if his respect went out the window, then mine was going with it. In the end, I was three minutes late clocking in, and had a crazy bus driver chasing me down the halls of Wilderness. I didn't get a half point, because my manager understood that it was out of my control. Talk about a frustrating situation though. Lesson reiterated: Always take the earlier bus!

As far as life outside of work goes, I've been hanging out with Samuel a lot. He's a pretty cool guy, and he had never been to any of the parks until about a week ago. Of course, I wanted to be with him on his first visits! We went to Hollywood Studios, and I finally got to go on ToT. He fell in love with it too. I also kicked his butt at Toy Story, which he was surprised about. The only person to ever beat me at Toy Story is Jaime. We definitely had a good time at HS. We also went to Epcot, which is where he works, with Isabelle the next day, and he got upset when we ran away from IllumiNations. I made it up to him two days ago though, and took him to the Poly to get Dole Whips and watch the fireworks, also with Isabelle. 

I also did pre-select at Nordstrom a few days ago, which is my favorite time of year. I had to take public transportation to get there though, and it really scared me. I survived though, so that was good. The lady that helped me is from Bellevue, so that was awesome! I have to venture to the mall next week to go pick my stuff up, and I'm pretty excited. 

I also got to spend some quality roommate time with Isabelle the other day, and we met a few characters, rode Space Mountain (finally), and I got a sunburn. A lady that works for Disney, taking surveys, asked me if I was friends with characters, which made me want to be that much more. I have next Thursday off, which is an open audition day, and I really think I might try. I would love to be in entertainment, although I don't think I will be. 

Today, I don't work until six, so I think I'm going to head to the post office and clean around the apartment a little bit. We have inspections on Tuesday, and as of right now, I have this feeling that we would fail. Then again, I'm not anyone's maid either, so if we fail, we fail.
