Oh, and to cheer myself and my roomies up I’ve decided to play a little prank this year on Christmas day.
For weeks and weeks now I’ve been moaning about how I’m not celebrating the Holidays this year and have been a general scrooge so yesterday I went to Downtown Disney and bought them all really good presents (if I do say so myself!) then went to Dollar Tree and I found some ‘edible lumps of coal’. So I’ve wrapped all the presents up and have put the coal under the tree, one for each of them. When they open them on Christmas morning, I’m gonna be all like ‘well I told you I wasn’t celebrating Christmas this year, that’s all you’re getting’ then I’m gonna excuse myself to the bathroom, let them bitch about me, then come and get them the real presents which are hidden in my suitcase. I’m so excited to see their faces, it’s gonna be hilarious but I reckon most of them are gonna punch me or something, it’ll be so worth it! Hehehehehe.
So, it’s Christmas time in the Disney bubble and I’m not going to lie, I’m not feeling Chrimbo this year. I’m not at home, my family aren’t with me, I’m working a gazillion hours this week at Yacht and Beach Club where I’ve been deployed so I won’t even be with my Poly family. I’m really homesick, but that comes and goes. I just have to keep reminding myself why I’m doing this, it’s my dream and I’m working for my favourite company in the world. I’m not saying it doesn’t have it’s downsides, it definitely does, but I really do love it here despite all my complaining. I just wish I was spending the Holidays with my favourites back at home.
Mentioning home, it’s kind of annoying me how most of the people back at home think I’m on some year long holiday. It’s not the case! I work hard and play hard. The perks of being in Orlando aren’t too shabby, but otherwise I’m working my arse off 99% of the time. I’m working full time on little pay, trying to afford bills and grocery shopping. It’s annoying me how people complain about working over Christmas, I’m working on Christmas day for the first time ever. At least everyone at home I know will have it off and be spending it with their families.
Anyway, rant over.
Things are slowing down over here, I haven’t really bothered doing anything with my days off apart from going shopping or going to the cinema, I’ve seen the Hobbit twice in the last week (nerd)
I’ve been at the Grand Floridian this week which was good, I’d been deployed there before a few weeks ago and I love the cast members there. Y&B, not so much. When oh when will I be back at the Polynesian? :(
I also found out that when I change roles in January I’ll be lifeguarding at Animal Kingdom Lodge which is so exciting! It’s a beautiful resort and I’ll get to meet so many more new people. I am going to miss my Poly family, especially the girls that all leave soon! Luckily it means I’ll have friends all over the world. It’s kinda hit home that I only have like six months left working for the Mouse now, and now I’ve decided I really need to make it count.
My new years resolution is to pick up French again, earn a language pin before I go back to the UK and hang out in the French pavilion and flirt with all the sexy boys.
