No matter what happens, I’ll always be with you. Forever.

10 Jan

Things have changed quite a bit in the past few weeks. I’m so sorry that I haven’t been keeping everyone up to date with my adventures but that’s because things have been busy, busy, busy.

Busy having adventures, busy working, and most of all busy saying goodbye and see ya real soon. Let me elaborate a little bit more about all of that, specifically work. For two weeks in December I was deployed to Tomorrowland Terrace which was definitely not Main Street USA and I had a 41 hour work week turn into a 67 hour work week from Christmas Day to New Years.  How I managed that, I really don’t know but I’m proud of myself for making it through.

I’m also sad that I made it through that week because it meant that all of my wonderful new friends were one step closer to going home. In fact, as I write this, only about 9 of my lovely MSN family members are still here while the rest of them went back to school, home, or started a new chapter in their lives. I wish them all the best but at the same time I honestly miss working with them, I miss the jokes, I miss the encouragement, and most of all, I think I just miss hanging out with each and every single one of them while we created magic. However, I know that some of my MSN family has become just that, family, and even though they’ve left Disney, it’s not goodbye – just a see ya later.

Anyway since so much has happened, I think I need to do a list again of my adventures, I know that can get a little bit boring to read so I’ll try to keep it as entertaining as possible! :]
