what did you do on your day off?

Oh nothing, just went to Disney World. Saying that will never get old.

In the past couple weeks, I've been working a lot. Sunday was a 13 hour shift, but it really wasn't as bad as it sounds. Just tiring. And I really do like the Crystal Palace, I'm very happy with my location. And it doesn't hurt that I see a castle whenever I look out the window of the restaurant. Pretty sweet.

So far, I've played tourist at Epcot, Hollywood Studios 4 times, and Magic Kingdom about a billion times.

Epcot was awesome. I had never been before, so I wore my 1st visit button and played tourist. We rode Test Track twice, which was a total blast. Sam, Amanda, and I spent a good 7 hours there, riding rides and traveling around the world. So so so baller. Soarin' was pretty sweet. And we spent a solid $16 on lunch alone, but it was totally worth it. A real meal... wonderful. After running around and playing all day, we were exhausted and all had work the next day, so it was a chill night at the apartment.

On the next day off (I think it was Tuesday?) I went to Hollywood Studios for the first time in forever. Last time I went there was no Tower of Terror and it was still MGM. Speaking of Tower of Terror... SO MUCH FUN. Such a great ride. Then there's the Great Movie Ride, which always makes me believe I was born during the wrong time period. And there is that whole Pixar world... and Star Tours. Star Tours. Totally went all nerd and freaked a little bit. That day at Hollywood was a bit short, we were only there for 4 hours or so.

Since it was only like 3 in the afternoon, we decided to go to Magic Kingdom and play. I forgot how great the Teacups are. So much more fun than I remember them being. This whole going to the parks for free thing is pretty awesome.

One day after work (Wednesday maybe?) I met up with my friend Mandie to go play in Magic Kingdom. We both work there; she's in attractions. We played tourist, and there were like no lines. It was great! In just 2 and a half hours we got to ride Pirates, Jungle Cruise, Aladin's Carpet ride, Haunted Mansion, and a couple other attractions. Really, no lines. Total blast kids, total blast.

I've had to work everyday since then; today was my first day off since last Tuesday. Sunday was a 13 hour shift, but it really wasn't as bad as it sounds. I'm just tired, I don't sleep nearly as often as I would like. Good thing I go to Tech, it has taught me how to live on no sleep so well. And for some reason I keep forgetting to eat. We're all so busy that most of us get about a meal a day. It's cool though, I don't really notice it.

Today Amanda and I went to Hollywood Studios (again). This time we played little kid and met characters. Oh, and rode Tower of Terror and Rockin' Rollercoaster. It was a long day, I think 7 hours in the park? Something like that. Total blast though. Here are a couple of my favorites from the past week or so.

So stinking fun.

So was this one.


I could so be Snow White

And of course.....

The castle

Well, that's about it that's going on here. I work, I try to remember to eat and sleep, and play in parks. I can't believe it's only been a little over 2 weeks since getting here, it feels like I've been gone for a really long time. But now that work has officially started, I have a feeling time is going to start going by quickly.

On a random side note, today was Bid Day back at Tech!!! Yay new baby squirrels!

And on that note, I will end this seemingly never ending post. That's what happens when I put posting off for almost 2 weeks I guess.
