Hew guys!

So John over at The Purple Folder blog started this new awesome blog that will help us all during our hopefully journey to getting that purple folder!

The College Program "Wait" Watchers is a new blog that's kind of like a "CP TV" as he calls it! There will be posts there of youtube videos, etc about the Disney Resorts that you can watch while waiting!

It's a really cool concept and all of you should follow the blog and facebook message John to get the login info and add videos YOU enjoy to the blog as well! I just posted some of my faves!

Sooo yeah, get on that people!!!!

Also, I just put up a new vlog!

Hey guys, so I just had my phone interview a few hours ago. It went pretty well, I feel good about it. My recruiter was Kathleen, and she was really nice. This is my fave part though:

While telling her about how I spoke to large groups of people:
Me: "When I have to help pages give tours at nbc I speak to large groups of 25-30 people about the studios we have in our building, etc."
Recruiter: "Oh! That sounds like our Great Movie Ride in Disney's Hollywood Studios!"
Me: "Haha! That's my favorite ride!"

Soooo that was awesome. And the part at the end where we exchanged stories about the Carousel of Progress. Ahh.

Just another 3 to 4 weeks of WAITING. >_>

Ah well. So relieved now though.

Hey guys!
So as you all know, applications went up yesterday.....EXCITING!

Of course, I was at work. >_> But I applied first thing when I got home! Along with eating a turkey, bacon and lettuce club sandwich.....Mmmmmm now i'm hungry.

Anywho, so here are the roles I chose!

Attractions: MY ABSOLUTE #1! Hopefully a high spieling role......but I'm not too picky.... and hopefully not animal kingdom.......lmao apparently I am picky.

Merchandise: Ehh. I do this now, so I really wouldn't want to REALLLLYYY do this, but idc. It would be cool to be in the Emporium or the little shops in DHS near the backlot tour. :)

Photopass Photographer: I've always been interested in photography and took a few classes, so I know what aperture and all that stuff is. I figured that would be fun.

Concierge: Seems nice. Sitting in an air conditioned hotel checking in guests. Not bad.

Vacation Planner: This is my #2. I sell tickets at NBC now so this is probably my #2 experience wise. Although an NBC tour ticket with one specific time is def less intense then the millions of options you have at Disney. I've been in and out of that disney reservations website trying to plan a vacation, I think I have it down packed.

Full Service Food And Beverage: Basically a hostess job, which I wouldn't mind. Seating guests, etc.

I made up my mind that if they ask me to do QSFB I'll say thanks, but no thanks. I couldn't work around greasy food all day. Candy is another story. And I feel like putting QSFB on your role checklist is just a reason for them to give it to you.

Ehh. We'll see.

My interview is MONDAY at 6:30pm! Which rocks because I have work from 8-2 and it gives me enough time to get home, relax a bit and get ready for this thing!!! I need to print out the role checklist, my printer is a dummy and doesn't have ink. I need to go to staples anyway so I'll make my mom pick it up. :)

Anyway, hope all of you the BEST of luck!
And to all of you that are already down there on your programs, hope you are having a BLAST, as it seems with all these blogs and videos!! :)


P.S: I'll probably make another vlog after my phone interview to show that process and things. :)

The post you've all been waiting for!

Not really...

I didn't finish the book yet, I have a midterm tomorrow and lots of fairy tales to read by then so I'm just posted a general observation right now.

I'm up to the 4th or 5th chapter, and I realized that although this book is given a negative connotation, especially by the mouse in a prison cell on the cover, it's not completely.

I mean, it is. But the fact is it's not representing the Disney College Program as a hole. There are snippets of quotes from alumni's expressing SOME bad or ODD experiences whilst they were in the program. Or just short stories of things that went wrong, or were strange occurrences. Things/events that have happened to, probably 2% of the people who've done the program.

And I can see where he's coming from. Some people who don't appreciate Disney for what it is will come into the program with this mindset. Why they're doing the program at all baffles me, but it happens.

It's just another way of looking at it....and very PESSIMISTIC way, but another way.

Again, the stories from this book are most likely from a small percentage of the same people telling their horror stories, which probably don't happen to 90% of participants.

That's my 2 cents for now. More later.
