Day 30: A Photo on my Last Day at Work

I've been putting off writing this last post because I knew how hard it would be to describe my feelings on my last day. I've enjoyed showing you my experience on the College Program throughout the last 30 days.
Team Princess after our last "track talk" meeting with the managers and coordinators behind Cinderella Castle shortly before clocking out for the last time.
The last position I worked: Pooh Greeter, one of my absolute favorites

I'd like to share a video of Wishes because it was one of my fondest memories and my favorite Disney show. I was lucky enough to watch these fireworks every night at work. In the words of Mickey Mouse, "so long folks, see ya real soon!"

Day 29: A Photo at Graduation

Graduating from the College Program was a bitter sweet event for me. I was sad that my program was coming to an end but happy that I had made it this far and had met so many new people. One being Jack Lee from China seen in this picture. Jack was hilarious and always made working so fun and was like a celebrity in Fantasyland.
This is just another picture at graduation with my roommates. Mickey and Minnie were there as well as some other characters, prizes and food. It was an overall good time!

Day 27: My Favorite After-Work Memory

My favorite "after work" memory would be going out to eat with my fellow Pooh-Siders. Almost every night after work we would go somewhere to eat. IHOP, Perkins, Ale House, Steak and Shake, McDonalds were some of our favorites. The majority of the money I made went to going out to eat but it was worth it. Most of the time we would get off work sometime after midnight, sometimes even as late as 4am. Robin and I always got mozzarella sticks. It is moments like these that I will never forget. I miss this life more and more every day.

Day 26: A Photo in my Favorite Country at EPCOT

NORWAY!! I love the Norway pavilion at EPCOT the most probably because I am Norwegian, but I love the Maelstrom, the restaurant and the perfume they sell in the gift shop. And the Norwegian men working in the gift shop aren't bad either. ;)

Day 24: My Favorite Part of my Job

I've said this many times before, and I'll say it again, my favorite part of my job was the people I worked with. I guarantee that if I had worked with people I didn't like, my job wouldn't have been as magical. It was so much easier working with people that had positive attitudes and were there to help when I needed them. Besides my fellow Pooh-Siders I loved making magic for guests and being able to experience cast-only events like parade previews.

Day 23: A Photo at Animal Kingdom

So this post is a day apologies, I was busy writing a paper all night last night. This is one of my favorite photos from Animal Kingdom, or DAK as we call it. It was also the funniest experiences I had while meeting characters. Stitch was in a crazy mood and was fighting with Lilo. He kept putting leaves in Carolyn's purse and was messing around when we tried taking pictures. The picture pretty much says it all.

Day 22: A Photo That Always Makes me Laugh

So, here is the story: My roommates and I were at Walmart shopping for Christmas decorations. Katie found 2 nativity sets; one with black characters, and one with white. We were a little puzzled why baby Jesus was black, because we were all pretty sure He was white. She was going to buy him, and at some point when we got to the alcohol aisle decided to randomly leave him in some Bud Light for someone else to find. I wonder if the person who found black baby Jesus was just as puzzled as we were?
