it's like I disappeared!!!

And with magic... anything is possible, right??

So, I spent two months not posting. Actually, I was deliberating AVOIDING posting. Because I didn't know what I wanted to say, and I really, really am not good at blogs. At all. Used to be... but now I'd rather talk to SOMEONE instead of just... the internet. So for any of you that do actually read or check up and wonder where I am... I apologize. haha

2010 has been great so far. I am working as an Attractions hostess... or Tour Guide, rather-- at the Magic of Disney Animation "Tour." When I applied for my extension, I specifically requested to move to this attraction. It has a special place in my heart (or at least where it is and what it used to be), and I was SO thrilled to be transferred over.

There are so many great things about my new role. I love Attractions... I think QSFB is one of the hardest jobs on property, so I am relieved to be doing something different. The Drawn to Animation show is a toss-up. Sometimes, it's really fun-- if you have a great audience, they appreciate it, you haven't done it a billion times already, etc. But at the same time, it's like acting out the same nine-minute scene over and over and over again... and if you get people that sit in there and sleep, or those that just stare at you and don't laugh at anything... well. It's no fun for me either!! I am in contact with our Guests allll day long, and I end up saying the saaaame things over and over again. But that's what I'm here for-- to repeat myself a thousand times a day, to clarify the awful Studios map, and to try to help Guests understand our poorly designed attraction.

(Now, an aside: coming from a Communication Design background, there is nothing more frustrating than having to deal with poorly designed and unresolved communication issues. I have never seen Guests so constantly befuddled and confused about where they are going and what they are doing. I pity them, and wish that I had the power to improve it or remove it, you know? So. frustrating.)

Overall, though, I work with some great people. Everyone has crazy personalities, which gives me plenty to laugh about throughout the day. We're a bunch of characters, that's for sure. SPEAKING OF... we get visits from characters almost every day, and I still get excited to see them. I don't think that's ever goin to change. haha :)

Anyway, this has been a quick, casual post. I'm sending lots of love from Disney World... miss all my friends and my family!!
