I'm not too fond of this waiting thing...

So I obviously haven't heard anything back yet, but i've been keeping up to date with my board reading on wdwip and it's exciting to see some other Canadians sending in their resumes and getting emails saying only 4-6 weeks now! yay! i'm definately hoping for the 4 weeks, as waiting is driving me crazy. i can't lie..sometimes when i can't sleep or i'm driving up and down the island i try and practise figuring out what i'm going to say to the questions. haha. really dorky aren't i? but i'm so excited! i've been wanting this for so long and it's just totally cool to think that half a eyar from now i could be packing and actually heading down there. Ive just picked my classes for my second year of uni and have all half year classes incase i have to stop and go to florida in feb as hoped!! it's just crazzyyy to even think about. This fellow from work who is also a huge disney geek (i've never met one before, it was so exciting!) anyways he keeps saying oh you'll get in and of course they'll accept you and him and his fiancee are booking a trip down there around that time so how cool would it be if i was there working and they visited?! my first group of friends coming downf or a visit already! and he would die for all the sick behind the scenes things and my amazing name tag. i'm pretty pumped to see my naem on one of those name tags - talk about the best feeling ever! haha. so anyways i shall be on my way, i just wanted to let you know how completely excited I am!!!! though you already knew that didn't you? :)

To all who come to this happy place...Welcome!

Hey there! So i originally started my blog on June 11th under a different site name. However i then realized where i got the brilliant name for my site - from someone who was already on the program! So not wanting to step on any toes I've decided to change it, so here is my original posting from June 11th, 2008, a quick Intro to me!! :

Hello! My name is Kate and I love disney. there I said it. now everyone knows the truth. When I was 4 years old and first visited Disneyland i decided i was going to live there. unfortuantely at an age a bit older i found out that in fact just because Walt had an apartment there, doesn't mean i could. Then when i was 12 years old i went to Florida for the first (and only so far) time with my Mum. We met a cast member in the Canada pavillion at Epcot from Nanaimo, a town 45 minutes from my own and she told us all about the incredible job she had down there through the cultural representative programme. i knew i was meant for the job ever since, and now it's finally become time for me to apply. I'm so excited! About a week ago i sent in my resume and cover letter and heard back that they recieved my email, and i would hear further about the application process in 8-10 weeks!!! 8-10 weeks!!! that's FOREVER from now!!!!! i think about it all the time and i just wish they would message me soon. i even have it mark on the calendar when about they are suppose to email me again. those will be super intense weeks. So really i plan to use this space mainly once i'm in florida to update everyone on the amazing adventures of being a cast member, however i thought the whole application process might be cool too. So i hope all is well, and sorry if it's a while before my next post, things will pick up when i start to hear things from the mouse:)
