A New Dream, A New Challenge

I get this idea, one that I am sure is not mine alone, that travel is a privilege. Travel is a break from work, it is play, it is vacation. So why on earth would I think myself so privileged as to vacation all the time? Why should I be one of the lucky few…

Wingin’ It

The last month has been a blur. Six weeks actually. Ever since I made this decision. It’s not that time flew by, or that I was crazy busy. In fact, there was a lot of siting around and waiting. But when I try to tell people things that happened in the last six weeks, I…

Goodbye World; Hello World!

  Honestly, I don’t have a lot to say about the last year and the experience of working at Disney World. A lovely friend helped me get out all my angry ranting towards the company, so now I’m just sort of placid. It’s been quite a year. Not great, maybe not even that good, but…

I think this term applies just as…

Full Speed Ahead

“You move quickly when you make up your mind on something.” A friend said that to me the other day. Why yes, yes I do. Let’s face it: if it’s the right fit, you know. I have spent the last post-college-graduation year trying to decide what I want to do with my life, and every…
