Today was one of those days that will be burned in my mind as one of the best days of my life.
Before today I had 3 things I was worried about. As Eric can probably vouch for, I have been saying these three statements for the past 4 months:
“God, I hope I have a good job.”
“What if I have shitty roommates?”
“I am just worried I won’t have any friends.”
Today I found out that I am working in Attractions in Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom. This is an UNBELIEVABLY wonderful placement. Good job? Check.
I met my 5 suite mates today and believe that every one of them is amazing, normal, and fun. I cannot wait to get to know them better. And my roommate, Bonnie, is an absolutely perfect match for me. She is nerdy, funny, and about to have a lonely 5-month long distance relationship with her boyfriend too. We have so much in common, it’s crazy. Good roommates? Check.
Through the winding lines of registration, I was pushed into a situation where I met a lot of different people. Each one of them was friendly, talkative, and made this nerve-wracking day easy as can be. Every person here is meant to be a Disney employee, and therefore an easy friend to make. I am not at all worried that I am going to make some lasting friendships in this program. Friends? Check.
So far, everything has been working out for me. Let’s hope that continues throughout the program!
Look at these pictures from today!! Have you done the Program before? Any words of wisdom?
