Just thought we'd let you know about what's going on in our lives right now. :)
We rented out our apartment in New York for the Fall semester and we moved to Florida. Yup. No job, no place to stay, no contacts to speak of, and no car. Fun, huh?
It's always been one of Isa's dreams to work at Disney World. So we saved up a little, she took a semester off of school, and we booked a one-way trip to Orlando. We rented a car for a week, got an extended stay hotel, and hoped everything would just work out.
Isa had her character/parade performer audition on Thursday, Aug 19. She did phenomenally well. Of the starting 150+ applicants, she made it all the way to the end (while I waited oh-so-patiently in the hallway for over 3 hours). She had a lot of fun and we're really confident they'll call soon with a position for her.
As for me, I tried to walk right into the casting center and get a job on the spot, but they require all employees go through the online application process. So I'm in their system awaiting an open sales position.
Pray for us, cross your fingers, and send positive thoughts our way that Disney calls back soon. We've returned our rental car to save some money, so now we're stuck in our "resort-esque" apartment complex, killing time by swimming in the pool, walking to Publix for groceries, and watching the Disney Channel.
But before we were stuck without transportation, we took a day-trip over to Cocoa Beach for some fun in the sand. We ran into a nest of some baby turtles hatching. Check it out (you may want to pause the music player first):
