The one about June 2010

June is almost over and somehow I managed to not blog at all despite the fact that a lot has been going on! The biggest news is that I am switching jobs at Disney, thus diversifying myself in preparation for when I take over the company in like 2040 =). When you talk to managers and other higher-ups here at Disney, they will give you a whole list of different roles they've had throughout their Disney career. Now I am on my 3rd role (Merchandise, Research, now Concierge) and I'm sure it will not be my last. I am very excited about my new role as a Concierge at Animal Kingdom Lodge for several reasons....

Reason #1: Yeah, I'll be working there. Cool, huh?

Reason #2: Air Conditioning! This can be seen as a pro and a con.... mostly a pro but pretty sure I've sweated off like 5 pounds so far this summer. Now I might actually have to work out again when I have an indoor job.

Reason #3: I don't have to survey people anymore! Woohooo. No more "May I have your zip code please?"

Reason #4: I get to help people and make magic much more than I could in research.

All in all, I think this will be a good change for me. I am a little hesitant to venture out of the theme parks. I especially liked the fact that I worked in all 4 theme parks in Research, but I think I will actually be able to enjoy the theme parks again when I don't think of them as my place of work.

In other news, I signed my lease at my apartment for another year so it looks like I'll be a Floridian for another year at least. Obviously, things can change, but it is a good indicator of me staying put. If I applied for and got a job elsewhere that paid well, I'd leave in a heartbeat but the chances of that happening look pretty bleak.

Bonus Features:
1) My little sister, Elise, got engaged! I am very happy for her and have little to no jealousy over the fact that she is younger than me and engaged haha. Her now fiance went with us to Las Vegas and he seems like a cool guy and he fit in great with the family. The count for weddings I cannot miss in 2011 is now up to 3.
2) I so did NOT cry at the end of Toy Story 3, maybe I am more cold and heartless than I thought?? lol
3) I saw Jordin Sparks in concert (see other blog)
4) I bought the new Miley Cyrus CD and am not that impressed.  It's good but not like WOW.
    Jordin Sparks' Battlefield > Miley Cyrus' Can't Be Tamed. Just sayin.
