75 Days!

So as of today I'm only 75 days away from checking in for my College Program.  A lot of the Fall Advantage participants are already checked in and training for their new roles as Cast Members.  And I know several people who will be arriving mid-June so I'm excited for them!  And it's got me feeling a combination of anxious, excited, jealous, and un-ready.  I am really enjoying reading others' blogs about check-in and Traditions.  It's nice to have a clearer idea of what to expect in those first days.

I'm still debating whether or not to request a work location.  Some part of me does want to be completely surprised, and since a request would not be guaranteed I could still be surprised anyway.  Also, when considering where I would ask to be placed, I cannot come up with many solid contenders.  It's funny but I am actually having more success at coming up with a few places where I hope I won't work.  I could go a broader route and request one park, or even something a bit less vague like "Frontierland."  Or maybe I could come up with my top 3 requests, vague or otherwise, and send those in.  Even if they end up denying my request it wouldn't hurt to ask!  I think that I will focus on narrowing the request possibilities down over the next few days and e-mail them by the end of the week.  I doubt that it is too late in the game to do this.

Until next time, dear readers!

Ah, I start mine in 18 days! I half-wish I had 74, I feel so unprepared! I'm so nervous. But REALLY excited at the same time (:

I'll do a post of things I "wish I had done" - if I need to ;)

Oh, & the dress is from Delias (:

It couldn't hurt to request. After all, like you said you might be surprised anyway! And since you're going to be working there, it's important that you have a place that fits you, where you can do your best.

But all of Disney's attractions are fun and unique so I'm sure you'll love where ever you get placed!
