So the last few weeks have just been a rush, between working the Halloween parties and working some really crazy hours (hello...3am?) and going to play in the parks before work and on my days off as well. "It's a Small World" re-opened, and I thought it was going to change and be different so I waited in a 40 minute line to ride it, only to find out the only thing changed was the line queue. I love the ride, but it is NOT worth a 40 minute wait, haha.
The last of the Halloween parties is this upcoming weekend and then next week, the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party starts up and so that's going to be a whirlwind of craziness as well. I am so excited for a change though and I can't wait to attend that party as a guest as well! :)
I am going home this weekend. I am taking a train back down to South Florida on Friday to get there just in time for Greg and I's date for our 3 year anniversary which coincidentally is actually on Friday. I then have an orthodontist appointment on Saturday afternoon (which is why I was going home in the first place) and then I am hoping to spend the afternoon with my best friend Christine and her adorable baby Leilani. Then on Saturday evening I am going to go to church at CBG which I have missed greatly and then drive up to West Palm Beach to Jen's new apartment for a get-together she is having! Then on Sunday is Halloween which I will likely spend most of the day with my family. I am not sure if I am coming back to Orlando on Sunday or Monday. It will depend on if I can get my Monday night shift covered or not.
Well, this is a longer update than normal but it has been a little while since I have blogged. I am hoping to blog about my trip when I get back and I will probably post a vlog about that as well.
Hope everyone is having a great week! :) If you have any questions feel free to check out my Formspring athttp://formspring.me/lytysha . It can be questions about anything, including about the Disney College Program.

I got my second "Great Service Fanatic" this week! :) I got it last night because I had a VERY difficult guest who was giving me a hard time and kept changing what she wanted and it resulted in me having a lot of voids on my register (not good) and almost in tears. But I continued to give her what she wanted until she was finally satisfied and left. A co-worker (who is an ornament personalizer) saw the whole transaction, which had lasted over an hour by the way, and awarded me with the certificate. I was so grateful because I was so frustrated and upset over this guest. It made me feel a little better!
I also worked a halloween party last night and it was really fun. I had a great conversation with a couple that was celebrating their first wedding anniversary and I also met a little girl who was dressed up as Lady GaGa (very realistically I might add) and she was just precious. I love the people I get to interact with on a day-to-day basis. I learn so much and I meet so many people from around the world.
And then, as I was leaving the bus stop last night, this random girl asked me if she could get a ride home because she saw that my ID had the same complex as her and so I said yes and I got to meet somebody new. She was super nice and from Colorado (which is somewhat near where i'm originally from) so that was a nice experience too!
I don't have to work until 5:15 today so I am just hanging out for the day, doing some crocheting for a charity called Knit Pray Love and I may do some scrapbooking here later! :)
Have a wonderful day everyone!

I tell you, I am the WORST blogger in the entire world!
Well here is a QUICK update because I have stuff to do today but I wanted to inform y'all that I officially applied to some professional internships. I applied for Youth Events Facilitator, College and International Housing-Event Planner, Cast Service Center Specialist, and Project Support-Aulani Resort and Spa. I already got turned down for my top choice AND the one that I was the most qualified for (Youth Events Facilitator) so that was a great disappointment.
I will hopefully keep y'all updated on how the interviews go and such.
The Halloween Parties are still in full swing.
Greg is coming up here in a week to celebrate his birthday with me up here in Disney World! :) Yayyyy!!! We are staying at a nicer hotel than normal and we are likely going to eat at either Cape May Cafe or Chef Mickeys for his dinner! We are also planning on going to the Food and Wine festival at Epcot (I have already been once this season).
Well, that's all for now.
