So work has been good the last few weeks. I now feel settled at Mouse Gear and am enjoying my time there. I'm on the registers all day which can get a bit tedious at times but the guests are all lovely so it's fun to interact with everyone. I got a marriage proposal from a man the other week, trying to set me up with his son. I thought he looked about 20 years old but as it turns out, he was 34 and had two children... so that one didn't go very far! I was deployed to Magic Kingdom last week to work on strollers. At first I was iffy about it and wasn't enjoying it too much, but by the end of the week I'd made a lot of new friends and had a good time there
So the weekend just gone was an extremely busy one due to it being a very special day for me indeed; My 21st birthday, wahoo! My brother Tom got in touch and told me he was coming down to visit with some friends, which was a nice surprise. So they arrived Thursday night and we spent the next day at Magic Kingdom. Then in the evening, a group of us went out on the party bus to downtown Orlando to a club called Bliss. It was nice to venture out of the Disney bubble for once and see someplace different. Then the next day we were up bright and early again as a group of us went to Islands of Adventure. The rides at Universal are definitely more suited to our age group but it was weird walking around and not seeing anything Disney! I swear we've been brainwashed. I also got to experience The Wizarding World of Harry Potter which was AMAZING. It actually looks like you're walking through the film set. The ride in the castle is just incredible. The technology they use is like nothing I've seen before. And we all got to try the famous Butterbeer, which I can only describe as cream soda. It's nice but very weird. And very sickly. After half a cup, we'd all had enough and it was thrown away haha.
Now I'm sitting in my brand new apartment and I've found I've settled in a lot quicker than I thought I would. I'm still with my roommate Amy, which is good as I don't think I could do without her constant whining and jabbering all day long ;) It was sad saying bye to our Canadian flatmates but their programme had ended and so they went back home while we were made to move apartments to make room for the new arrivals.
So it's been a busy busy week for me but I wouldn't have it any other way. I've had the best birthday which was made special by all my family and friends. And now it's back to work tomorrow after having a nice couple of days off to wind down. I've finally posted the picture of my Mouse Gear costume for you to all have a laugh at. But I'm afraid I broke my camera on the night of my birthday so there will be no more photos for a while!
