mood: giddy
work:
good i love it i really do, i got 3 fanatic cards in one day for the same situation!!! can you believe that? I never got any at Space...so this has to say tons about how much Im enjoying myself here at DAK. The other intern for DAK went home bc she missed home too much so Im the one left so all eyes are on me! hopefully that will help when it comes to seeing if i can stay full time.

life:
so i started this thing where I go to jellyrolls on saturdays and sundays instead of tuesdays bc its too crazy on tuesdays. about 2 weeks ago I met this guy named Seth cute nice boy from NY and he is a door guy at JellyRolls...well last week I saw him again and he gave me his phone number!!!! and told me to call him well we ended up hanging out on monday night i believe. He came over to my apt and we watched orange county together and watched tv as well...we stayed up till 4am just talking like this guy is AMAZING in every shape way and form!!! he didnt try anything he just held my hand and then right before he left he gave me a kiss. i havent felt like this in a like a SUPER long time...i feel like im 13 again and i got a crush on a boy and that makes me all giddy..i smile all the time bc of him. On tuesday I went to jellyrolls bc I knew he was working, we spent most of the time talking well..when he was not at the door checking ID's. He even held my hand behind the wall so his manager couldnt see us and he wouldnt get in trouble. He left for new york on Wed....he doesnt come back till this friday...and I CANT WAIT. I have never missed anybody like this esp after only knowing them for such a short period of time ya know?? Ill update ya guys on how that all goes once he gets back into town bc ill for sure see him on saturday when me and my roomie Jessie go to Jellyrolls as usual.

other:

its 2:30am and well...i thought i would update a lil before heading to bed. today was my day off finally....so i got the chance to get up at 2pm and just chill around the house then i took my sis and bro to lunch @ buffalo wild wings great place. Then I went to open a membership at a tanning salon here in houston so I could keep up my tan before I leave for Orlando in just 9 days kids!

They called me from work tonight to see If i wanted to come in bc one of the waiters called in sick....they are damn crazy if they thought i would agree to it. That restaurant has done shit for me, so why should I kill myself and work on my day off right? besides damn josh was on the schedule tonight and lord knows I do NOT want to be anywhere near him more than I have to be.

Which reminds me tomorrow is friday which means I work at night..one of the 3 times I work at night during the week.....and mr. josh will be there. I have promised myself I will NOT talk to him unless totally need it, and I doubt ill need him at all since ill prolly wont head wait so I wont have to check his section, and ill prolly be in the opposite side of the restaurant away from him..or so I hope so. but knowing my luck ill end up head waiting and of course they will give me the section next to him.

i know i have no reason to be pissed off at him, but i hate when people lie to me and when people are all wishy washy with their feelings i dont play that game. im tired of head games, i guess it comes with being older but come on if you like me tell me and lets do something about it lets go out...dont tell me you like me and then fall off the face of the planet. ahhh yes im bitter oh well screw it i will never see him after 9 days because i know my prince is waiting for me in orlando.

i cant wait, the first thing me and my roomies are doing is going to MK so hopefully mr. speller will be working so he can hook us up at the mountain bc lord knows there are prolly 4 people there who know me.

speaking of orlando when are yall coming to visit?

ok well time for sleep...

(be cool comes out on tuesday!!! i cant wait to buy it thats where i got that phrase from)

Sorry im watching fresh prince....

ok update time, work still sux! people both who eat there and who work there SUX too! I think im down to liking about 5 people. Today I cussed out my manager again!!! Yah I can do it and not get fired bc the guy is a year younger than me so my respect for him is really tiny esp since he wont stop hitting on me.

So im leaving for orlando in like 2 weeks so you would think I would be spending my time packing or just working...well i have found the time to not only get in HUGE trouble with the parents bc of me going out last thursday and getting lost downtown houston not under the best "conditions" if you get my drift. I have also found some guy at work who caught my eye.....not good for many reasons but mainly bc I leave in like 12 days ill never see this kid again. Something about him makes me not want to take my eyes off him....which means im starting to have a crush on him which means im likely to get hurt. He can be a real ass if he wants to..so sometimes I take it too seriously and end up getting hurt my friend says I wouldnt care too much about what he said to me if I didnt ilke him that much....I guess she is right. I just dont understand why guys can be so wishy washy with their feelings or actions. He has been hounding me to go out with him through text msgs, calls, getting people to talk to me and when I finally decide to go out with him and ask him when he wants to go out..he says I dont know....what do I answer to that???

I went back to the restaurant tonight for dinner, with a couple of friends and sat in his section. Yah I got mad at him five minutes into my meal bc he was being an ass....but then he of course looks at me and smiles and I melt...damn boys and the effect they have on me.

The ex bf called he wants to come visit me in Orlando i cant wait, its going to be fun since I havent seen him in about a year aka last summer in Orlando.

I cant wait....in 2 weeks ill be in orlando awaiting to check into my apt

ok....nuff for right now im going to take a shower and get to bed i got work at the buttcrack of the morning AGAIN
ahhhhh cant wait for thursday for my day off

Why do we serve food on a black tray??

mood: exhausted
That question was brought up by my friend Marquis at work the other day....he is on some trip where he belives everyone around him is racist in some sort of way...he said that my blue pen symbolized the bruises "his people" had encountered in the past....and this moment I told him to stop and to remember I was mexican so this whole racist card didnt play out with me...Then he said he was just doing his job as the regular black angry guy...so I said find if you are going to be the token black guy at the restaurant at least be funny and walk around saying stuff like "damn thats wack"

chill out kids...i said that bc i knew he had just watched another teen movie and they make fun of the token black guy in every teen movie. So he found it funny and concluded I was not racist..ha good times

Ok so as you see Im alive.....
work still sux, people who come to my restaurant are the dumbest and most ghetto ppl ever I dont know if im going to make it for another 2 weeks. The guy at work is still trying to hit on me hard core.....but dont worry Im keeping my front esp since I know Ryan aka the best friend would kick my ass if i didnt follow his advice. So I go to work to make money and then go home period....thats it. Speaking of work and making money I dont have to kill myself over tips anymore bc my aunt sent me 500 dollars as my graduation gift so that will help out alot which means I get to spend some of the money I made. Im going to the mall tomorrow WHICH IS MY FIRST DAY OFF IN LIKE A WEEK AND A HALF and im buying myself a HOT outfit bc im going to this really POSH club downtown houston callred red star with a bunch of people from work..no the kid who is in love with me is not going...but his friend is who is single and OH SO VERY GOOD LOOKING. so ya know i gotta look good tomorrow night..ha

I still havent gotten my disney letter telling me all the info I need for check in but I called today and they said its in the mail so hopefully it will be coming my way before the weekend it would make my life a lot easier if it would just come so i could find out when to arrive and what to expect.

well...im off to bed bc i got a nice day of shopping ahead of me
yall take care and ill update sometime this weekend when i actually have some time to myself
miss you all very much
speller hope you are taking care of space for us!! oh ps. how many breakdowns are we up to now??
justin im confused about the whole bday thing why does speller keep saying ur bday is not till november??
carissa hope summer school is treating you well...sorry about the book troubles i hear you are having
mel- are you on vacation yet? hopefully you are so you can start to plan when you are coming to visit me and speller.

I have worked 3 days like I said and I already caused drama at the restaurant.....not my fault i will insist.
Some guy who works there...apparently has a crush on me...when I was checking sections he asked me for my number and I gave it to him bc I thought we would all go out...well he ends up calling me last night and tells me he wants to hang out so I said cool...then he says he has to run it by his GF bc she might not approve of him hanging out with a girl....so i said well you can bring her along I just want everyone to go out one night....next thing you know he is text mgsing me saying that he is not going to lie he is attracted to me bc im gorgeous and funny.....i know its a curse...ha ha jk
so what do i do know.....i guess ill have to play this one as it goes

So I went to work today for lunch with my friend Shazia. I got to put in my schedule and Ill be working starting tomorrow till June 10th. I made an estimate on how much I would make if I worked all 3 weeks and I came up with around $1000 or so dollars. So im excited because I need to buy alot of stuff for the trip to Orlando including some clothes and an iron and a purse, and some cds, and some movies, and much much more. HA

so apparently one of my mangers is pregnant and so because of that they actually have promoted one of the bartenders to manager in trainning which would be ok but the bartender they chose is this guy who hates me with a passion of a thousand suns....so which means im sure my 3 weeks of work will be miserable...so im going to have to try my hardest to keep my mouth shut and just go to work and come home with my money.

all righty im off to go pick up my sis at school

27 days till check in
25 days till I start the drive

My mom wont let me live out of my suitcases for the 28 days till I leave AGAIN for Orlando. What kind of bullshit is this???? And then I started to think how I have so much crap to buy and little money to do it with. So I got to go by Cheddars the restaurant I work at here in Houston and get my job back for the weeks while I wait to leave for Orlando. So its back to waiting tables....oh well at least I get nice things out of it.
My mom broke the news to me that she is getting me an IPOD for a graduation gift...spectacular I wont be the only kid in this planet without one. I cant wait to get it and start downloading my songs. WOOO HOO

Beneath the Goofy looks



By CORKY SIEMASZKO
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITER


A new magazine article exposes the dark side of Disney.

There's a rat in the Magic Kingdom.
A new exposé rips the enormous fiberglass heads off Mickey, Goofy and other beloved Walt Disney characters and reveals the stressful and sometimes seamy underside of Disney World.

"The pressure is enough to drive some Goofys to drink," reporter Tyler Gray reports in the debut issue of Radar magazine.

Whenever possible, the actors flee the sterility of Disney World and seek sanctuary in the grungy 1.5-mile network of dank tunnels below. There they shed their heads in the "zoo" and unwind in ways Walt Disney would frown upon.

"My first day off the bus, I remember seeing Snow White, Mary Poppins and Ariel in costume, standing out there puffing on cigarettes," a former Pluto said.

Then there's Vista Way, an apartment complex known as "adult amusement park where they can shed their costumes altogether" and often do.

"The building houses students from around the world," Gray writes. "It serves as a breeding ground for legions of wanna-be Goofys, Donalds and Plutos."

While recruits are supposed to be living there under Disney's draconian code of behavior, "they're among the youngest, freest, and horniest of the corporation's workforce," Gray writes. And they learn "the thrill of defying the Disney image."

Sex, drinking and drugs are rampant. And the place's reputation is so notorious that Paris Hilton "is rumored to have dropped by," according to Gray.

It's the chance to perform before a crowd that draws so many young people, many of them gay.

"Prospective characters must meet strict guidelines," Gray writes.

Nobody taller than 5 feet tall gets to wear the Mickey head. Nobody black gets to be Snow White. Nobody white gets to be Mulan. And everybody has to audition to get in.

There's also an unofficial pecking order.

The best gigs are for the "chosen few" who have the "delicate bonestructure" to play Prince Charming or Cinderella.

Then come the big five characters - Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto and Donald.

"At the bottom rung are obscure fur characters like Mr. Smee, Captain Hook's sidekick in 'Peter Pan,'" Gray writes.

For $6.50 an hour, they don the oven-like costumes and endure the endless parade of signing autographs, posing for pictures and hugging tykes.

"The first time I stepped out in character I felt like I was famous," one Pluto said. "Everybody freaks out and rushes up to you."

All the while, Disney is watching.

"You don't want someone to start hip-hop dancing or doing the robot in Goofy," said Justin Alt, who trained actors to be Disney characters. "You don't want to ruin the fantasy."

Mortimer B. Zuckerman, chairman and publisher of the Daily News, is co-chairman of Radar, a glossy new general interest magazine edited by Maer Roshan.






-can you believe they said Paris Hilton has been to Vista?? LOL

mood: cold
So due to the stress brought on by both school and waiting to hear back from Disney I got a bunch of sores down my throat and all in my mouth so I cant talk, cant eat, cant swollow cant do jack crap. Im in horrible pain, the cloraseptic is just not doing it anymore....so i got some orajel and that is doing its job in 20 minutes incriments.
I went to a party last night I couldnt talk...I had to communicate with paper and pen do you know how hard that is????? Especially when I saw my EX BF and I had to "yell" at him for falling off the face of planet. today I went to work as a HOST I couldnt talk so once again good old pen and paper, and today would be the day everyone is asking me like a billion questions about disney and it killed me not being able to answer them.

ok well since i came home from work at 5 and passed out cold woke up at 1030 i really cant fall asleep right now so i thought i would post. As the marijuana leaks into my vents. I hate this bldg where I live. I dont mind people doing drugs or whatever bc I feel Im nobody special to dictate how people live their lives so its whatever. But Im not a fan of smelling that stuff when im at home and want to go to sleep. At parties not that big of a deal but not at home people especially when we all share a vent system.

nways my interview was on wed like i posted before. I believe it went great...he asked me the following questions
1. why guest relations
2. why disney
3. strengths and something i want to work on
4. a time in my past jobs where i been recognized and a time where i been coached
5. a past guest situation i took care of
6. my fav disney moment
7. did i do something special to prepare for the interview
and then when he found out i did...he asked me if i knew what DAK was doing for the 50th celebration
YAH I DID..COME ON I DO MY RESEARCH so i told him about lucky arriving at DAK

he said that just bc my interview was with DAK that there was still a chance i could be placed at another park and he said i would hear back from them by may 13....i have seen on the message boards that college recruiting is finding out next week so maybe the other AI's will start finding out then too.

I cant stress enough how much i want this, it would be the best graduation gift plus it would be the most amazing thing to make my dream come true of working for disney full time and in such an amazing spot as guest relations

everyone keep your fingers crossed and keep praying ill make sure to let yall know as soon as i hear something
i love you all very much thanks for the support i am very lucky to have some of the most amazing friends ever

i expect to see you all visit me this summer when i move there..yes im being positive.. ha ha thats a first take it and run with it.

school is almost done for me, i GRADUATE on may 14th which means i got like 2 weeks of school left
i got my final Public relations presentation this tuesday
then i got a final on friday and a final on monday then im done for good..how scary is that.

i got to put in my 2 weeks at work, I hope they dont schedule me after my last final bc i dont want to work anymore i just want to go visit Brandon (aka rugby boy) after he gets done with his finals and before i graduate i have been missing him something horrible lately so I want to go spend sometime with him in san angelo before i got to drive back to houston

good luck to all with finals presentations and teaching (thats for you mel), and with work
ILL LEAVE YOU ALL WITH THE FOLLOWING

"Who said that every wish would be heard and answered when wished on a morning star but somebody thought of that and someone believe it and look what its done so far"
