    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Yes they are, but it's a good read!

    Oooooo...!
    I have the John Hench book...LOVE it!

    I have not read the Sklar book but it sounds like one I need to track down, especially since I remember DL from back in the day.

So not sure what that means since she seems to not be talking internships? I still have a lot more info to find out since we have only communicated via voicemail at this point, and I'm sure there are plenty of others out there after the same positions also....so, we will see what she has to say.

    Oh, and she mentioned that she was happy to see Disney on my resume, as she happens to be a CP alum as well. My boss that I am working for now also likes to bring up my Disney experience while I am at work. Everyone told me that it would be a great thing to have on a resume....looks like they were right.
    Good luck! Hope ya' get the position ya' want!

    And, I've always heard that about Disney on a resume, as well!
    Although, come to think of it, I wouldn't ACTUALLY know...
    The last time I used my resume was when I applied at TDS. Every job I've been hired for since was by word of mouth...!

    They definitely are. I enjoy writing them just to relive the vacation over, but am always glad when I am done.

    Thanks Steve.

    I'm just goin' with the flow and not worrying over any of it. Have a job to get me through the summer and confident that things will unfold as they are meant to once autumn hits . I think the most stressful part is filling out the piles of apps and writing tons of different versions of my cover letter. Now that that part is done, I'm just patiently waiting.

    after reading between you and steve last night, I wish I had a family member working anything Disney right now. The rates are just really out of reach for those of us who have to pay full price. The travel site on here found me 4 nights hotel, 4 days park passes no meals for just under 1100 at All stars. HUH???
    We would not have been able to afford it, otherwise.

    Just another reason I'm glad I'm not a coffee drinker, in the first place!

    I'd have to go back and check, but I don't think we've hit 100 yet this year?
    By this time last year, we'd already had several 100+ degree days.

    Re: The RT Thread Part V

    Quick little update... Still have not met up with Sarah. It's kind hard. Yesterday I went to ucf and fall in love with it even more. Mom and dad liked it also. This morning I got my senior pictures taken at Epcot. It was so great. I can't wait to see them. If you are doing everything with Disney Professinal Phofltography request Ty. He is amazing. I hope everyone has a great rest of the week.

    Gabe and I are pretty close to each other location-wise, I think, so that's why.
