Now, since I last updated you guys I am happy to report that... I have kept up my doodling! Yay!
Also... I got a job! Double Yay!!!
And the job is with Disney... Triple Yay!!!
I had been working as a freelancer for a bit, but freelancing can be stressful and jobs can take a while to trickle in, so I kept on looking for a steady gig. I applied to everything I saw, got some nibbles, but the jobs were 1 to 2 hours away from my home, and well, Andrei and I STILL share the same ride, so some things just can't be done.
Finally, one day I was contacted by Disney for a nice little design gig (nothing fancy, but I like it), and many interviews, background checks, rain/job dances, sleepless nights later, I landed the gig.
I have been a Cast Member (the official Disney term for employees), for nearly a month now, and I adjusted to the company easily... now my routine, still has some kinks...
Let me preface this by saying: I AM a morning person... truly.
I begin my day at 5, in theory....
In theory I take the dog out at 5:15.
In theory I come back and start the getting ready song and dance by 5:45...
In theory I am ready to leave by 6:15
And then... I wait at a coffee shop close by my office from nearly 7 until around 8, when I go in to work...
Why? Because Andrei gets in to work an hour earlier than I do... so I spend an hour of my day like so:
Ah, such grace, such poise... That's me there... yes... I am asleep in the middle of a deserted coffee shop, clutching a latte, pretending to watch silly youtube videos, plopped on a pool of my own drool... and yes, if you look to your right top corner, that's one of the baristas, they all call me "Andrei"... because that's the name the system pops up on the loyalty point card, and I have been both too socially awkward and asleep to even try and correct it... so from 7:00 in the morning until 8:00 I go by Andrei and I am a narcoleptic.
And I just giggle in a deranged way because... I don't even get to clock in for another hour after that, but I feel like I am late to work when I am actually way early.
Anyway, you wanna know about my job?
My job is pretty cool. I get to browse image libraries filled with some of my favorite things, I get to play with photos and make things look awesome, and I get some pretty sweet perks... like getting into the parks for free, which is going to save me some money, hey, I have a problem, I know, but you have to see Magic Kingdom in the fall, it is so pretty it makes you want to cry... while eating a caramel apple and drinking a pumpkin spice latte as fireworks shoot up in the night sky.
By the time I get off work I am either on "LETS GO TO THE PARK DAMMIT!!!" mode or "IM SO HUNGRY! I NEEDS FOODZ NAO!" mode...
either way, my evening is gone and by the time I make it downstairs it goes like so:
You can guess I have been putting little to none will power into choosing Room A... also I don't sleep pretty, sometimes I wake up and I look like I am part of a midnight fight club and I just sleep walk my way into matches... and apparently I loose a LOT.
So THAT's what's been going on with me, that and a LOT of social interaction, outings, cool park time and running around to the point that I have destroyed two set of capris I wore all summer and a set of sneakers...
Anyway, I am back and ready to start updating more often.
Let's make it a date then, I'll see you guys here every Monday and Friday!
Now I am off to sleep because I don't want to fall on a pastry and have the baristas laugh at me again tomorrow.
