Now I've had the time of my life.......

Alrighty I'm only on Day 6 :-P Oh well, least I'm sticking to it. haha!
 So Day 6: Your favorite animal

 Hmm...I think once again this one is a tie. Favorite animals are:

             Dory from Finding Nemo. favorite quotes:
"sea monkey has my money."
"Yes I'm a natural blue."
"Wow, I wish I could speak whale."
"A game, ooh I love games, pick me!"
 aaand the winnner: "I shall call him Squishy and he shall be mine, and he shall be my Squishy"
Nala from Lion King
favorite quotes:
"pinned ya again"
"why won't he be the king I know he is, the king I see inside"

So yeah, those are my Disney picks for today's challenge.

So work. Yeah, it's going well. I'm freakin exhausted because apparently CP= closing person. I am getting 10 hour shifts everyday now and I am closing nearly every night. So tired but loving it so dang much. And I still love going to the parks on my day off. Finally met Flynn and Rapunzel yesterday. WHOA, Flynn was hot. :-D I'm ready to see Tangled again! lol

So I had this whole big story I wanted to tell about how I made a difference today but now I'm so tired. haha. so I guess I'll save that for tomorrow's post.

til next time,

Day 5: Ohhhh Flynn....

 Ok, so Day 5 is yet another repeat: Your favorite hero. I have already oohed and aaahed over Flynn Rider.  Read the previous post. It's all in there. Flynn made the ultimate sacrifice for Rapunzel's freedom. That is a hero in my eyes and he is definitely my favorite.
Ohh and I love this pic/part of the movie. And also... "Rapunzel, you were my new dream"
Gahhhhh I MELTED on those words.
So anyway, yes you now know my odd obsession with Disney animated characters. Moving on!

So tomorrow is Valentines Day. Shoot me through the heart right now please. This has always been a day I'm not exactly fond of....I really love Iris's opening quote from the movie "The Holiday". Here it is for those who don't know what I'm referring to:
I've found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said "Journeys end in lovers meeting." What an extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely close to that, but I am more than willing to believe Shakespeare had. I suppose I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said "love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true. For some quite inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course love can also be found, even if just for the night. And then, there's another kind of love: the cruelest kind. The one that almost kills its victims. Its called unrequited love. Of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victims of the one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones, the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking space! Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willingly loved that man for over three miserable years! The absolute worst years of my life! The worst Christmas', the worst Birthday's, New Years Eve's brought in by tears and valium. These years that I have been in love have been the darkest days of my life. All because I've been cursed by being in love with a man who does not and will not love me back. Oh god, just the sight of him! Heart pounding! Throat thickening! Absolutely can't swallow! All the usual symptoms. 

Not going to get into all of the past relationships here, don't worry. I won't be one of those girls who whines about everything that went wrong, every year on Valentines Day. So, just take that quote and understand it pertains to my life very well. Moving on! 

That's really it, to be honest. Will try to update more. My work schedule right now is kinda crazy...working 9,10, and 11 hour shifts every day. Today was my first day off in awhile (not counting the early release I got the other day to get better) It was nice to just relax. Next time Jason and I are both off, we plan to take a picnic on the beach. :-D 
Off to bed! Gotta be at work early tomorrow and working a 9 hour day, then coming home to the best friend and drowning our single sorrows in chocolate  :-D

til next time, faith*trust* and pixie dust!

Living the Life!

 *lays in bed and relaxes. Deeeeeeeeeep sigh* It feels so good to relax for a few. I have 2 days off before my assessment. I'm super nervous so I will spend most of my Saturday morning going over notes. I feel ok with the Turtle Talk with Crush attraction...the spiel is a relatively easy one to do and as long as I am listening to Crush talking, I am fine. It's the ride that I worry about.
 But I LOVE it. The Seas is the most amazing building ever! I didn't think I would like EPCOT much because, well, it's more intellectual and MK is for the kids, where the magic happens...thats where I wanted to be. But The Seas is for kids and is pretty magical so it feels like a piece of MK in EPCOT :-D
 The Seas is also the 2nd largest aquarium in the country. We have 4 dolphins, 2 manatees, several sharks, and LOTS and LOTS of fish! The Main Enviornment is one of my favorite rooms because I can go in there before the guests start arriving and sit against the class and feel like I'm a part of the sea. It's so peaceful and so beautiful.
 Bonus, Jason and I are getting off work at similar times so we have been playing in the parks at night. It's kinda amazing to say "hey, I'm bored. Wanna go watch fireworks at MK? Or wanna go ride some roller coasters in Animal Kingdom?" it's pretty freakin cool. I only wish I had some money right now cause I'm dying to go back to HP!! I got my first paycheck today! Not very big but I didn't work much last week. This week was training and next week I start picking up real shifts.
 So, getting back to the 30 day challenge.... Day 4 (hahahah I'm so off on this) would be: Your favorite Prince.
 Well, I definitely have a favorite....and then a 2 other princes who are kinda tied with each other. So here are my Disney men!
 ((kinda funny cause only one of them is a prince by birth!))

 Number one: Flynn Rider, or Eugene Fitzherbert

 Ummmm where to start with Flynn??! He's gorgeous, I love the name, he's an awesome character and he made the ULTIMATE sacrifice for his love! Yeah, the princes have all rescued their damsels but not like this! I bawled like a baby in the movie theatre! His lines are classic, and his facial expressions are priceless. He reminds me of my ex (umm lemme rephrase that. He reminds me of the good qualities my ex used to have!) But Flynn is definitely my favorite prince and favorite male character now. Flynn beat Naveen, who is next :-)

   Prince Naveen of Maldonia! OOOmg, gorgeous man...a cross between Aladdin and Eric. (no seriously, study his animation sometime. They took drawings of them both and combined the two) Naveen is an awesome character....and falls in love after getting to know her, as Flynn and the Beast did.  He loves music and even though he is a bit of a wild card, Tiana calms him down and he becomes a total sweetheart ((the proposal scene was like the cutest ever!))  So Naveen used to be favorite, now he is a close 2nd :-)

And last but not least, Aladdin! Another thief falls in love with a princess and becomes a prince later on. But Aladdin is really a sweet guy. He was my favorite prince growing up (beside Prince Eric but I guess I can only say 3. If I could say 4, Eric would be on that list too :-)

Anyway, those are my Disney men! Can I meet my guy who is a combination of all 3? LOL. 

 Ok I'm really exhausted so I'm hitting the bed! Thanks everyone for keeping up to date and have a magical weekend!

Til next time, *faith*trust* and *pixie dust*

real quick update

 OMG I know people who care about my blog are like "why haven't you posted, you started work!" so I apologize :-) It's been a crazy couple of days. Traditions, Discovery Day at Epcot, training, training, training, training.....oh and some more training, look at that :-P

 I am officially a part of the Disney Epcot team!! I am working at The Seas, the Finding Nemo attraction and the Turtle Talk show. It's AMAZING. I seriously think this is the best place for me, other than MK. And I am EXTREMELY lucky and grateful and very very lucky. Basically it went down like this. Got my assignment. It was Mission:Space. Those who know me, know I Hate Space. I was really bummed and saw a friend of mine was bummed too. He got Nemo. I requested Nemo when I found out I was probably getting EPCOT. Long story short, we went everywhere and were switched. We're apparently the first people ever to do that and it's kinda opened a can of worms, which I'm sorry for but I couldn't be happier about where I am. And it's more kid friendly and thats what was important to me. It's not my dream role but I am extremely content to stay here until I make it :-)

 So thats my update. I've been opening the ride every morning, 7 am to 4 pm. It's been long days and I'm still exhausted but I'm having the most amazing time of my life!!!
