The Most Magical Moment

It’s been way too long since I have written on this blog. And I guess we could call this the “introductory” post to my new branding!! Welcome to the new blog, once again!! Anyway, lately at work I have felt a bit dull. My college program is winding down to the end, and I’m in the midst of figuring out what comes next. I have become a trainer, and training has been amazing, but I’m not sure if it’s the heat, but something has been getting to me lately, and I felt a little distant. I needed that spark...

New Writing Adventure and Other Thoughts

Long time, no post, my friends. That’s because I have recently accepted a writer position with Odyssey Online! Each week I am tasked to write an article about Disney, something in the news, or something that’s on my mind in which other people can relate to.

An Open Letter to CPs Finishing Their Disney College Program

Dear friends, In about two weeks time, your semester on the Disney College Program will come to an end. You are about to have a lot of “lasts.” There will be a last time you get an assignment on your least or most favorite position. There will be the last time you work with a dear friend or least favorite person. And on that final day, you will clock in and later say goodbye to Mickey as he says “Thanks for making the magic!” for the last time. And you will most likely shed a tear. Trust me, I’ve...

Welcome to My Own NEW Little Corner!

Hey friends! Long time, no blog. About two weeks ago I shared that one of my goals was to launch a brand new blog, and here it is! I have made the odd jump from WordPress to Blogger, and so far I am loving it! When I first started dipping my toes in the world of blogging, the first platform I used was Blogger, so it’s nice to come back and discover the new ways I can make this this best it can be! At first glance, it is very similar to my WordPress, but I have found that...
