What do you do when you’re offered your dream job five years after it was first your dream job and it’s still a dream job but you’d be sacrificing your future to take it now?
I’m training for my new position at work and it’s half classroom/half in the area and I am so weirdly excited about taking notes and learning. It’s basic PowerPoint, mostly common sense stuff and I’m literally the only person taking notes. It’s kind of sad. I am a nerd who misses going to class.
I’m officially signed off as a character attendant, which is AWESOME, but the best part about this week was getting a phone call three days ago to let me know I’ll be hanging out with my old friends again starting next month!!! Everything took so long and now it’s all happening at once and I really just can’t wait for the week of May 11th.
I’m excited to go to work tomorrow. I had forgotten what that feels like (it’s the best).
I’m taking steps to get my life together (or at least to get my finances together), which may or may not end up with me dropping my full-time status to go part-time at two jobs. That sounds counter-intuitive, I know, but I’ll actually be able to make more money because I’m currently not allowed to work more than 40 hours a week or earn overtime.
My biggest concern at this point is health insurance, so I’m on the healthcare.gov site and yes, it’s as terrible as everyone says it is. I’m currently covered, but if I drop to part-time I won’t be able to keep my coverage, so I’m looking into other options. Does anyone know how to health insurance? How do I adult?
I still haven’t heard back from Disney, but I’m loving my job at Universal and I’m trying my best to enjoy the present instead of always looking to the future. When I lost my seasonal status two days after moving back to Florida, I felt like my life was over. Now I’m realizing that there are amazing opportunities for me everywhere and I just need to be open to new possibilities. Life doesn’t always go according to the plans I make for myself, but that’s okay.
January was kind of a terrible month for me, but a bunch of amazing things have happened over the last two days and I have a super good feeling about February.
