It’s weird how quickly you can get stuck into a routine and not realise how fast time is passing you by.
It’s absolutely mental that it’s been six months since I arrived back into the country, four months since I’ve started my first full time job and now already into the first week of 2017. In all honesty, I never thought I would ever get so attached to my time at Disney World. Applying for the program was a kind of last minute, “we’ll see how it goes” decision and while I loved Disney as much as the next person, I was definitely not Disney-crazy and was initially nervous that I would be out of place because of this. But the experience, the people I met, the friends I made and yes, even the tiring work days are days I wish I could go back to every day. And I definitely feel like I’ve become one of those people who always begins sentences with “When I was at Disney…” I cringe, I cringe.
I’m still loving my full time job though. I love the variety and everything that I’m learning, plus the people I work with are amazing– it’s definitely not an Andy in Devil Wears Prada sitcho at all.
I’ve also moved out of the parental home, which was something I knew I wanted when I got back to New Zealand and acquiring the full-time job helped that happen. I’m now living in a flat with three other people– Georgie and two guys who I knew through a friend. It’s expensive, but I’m loving the freedom!
I’m not big on the whole “New year, new me” thing, but I do know that I’d really love to start properly writing about some of my USA travels, and getting back into my fitness (cliche, I know). After a few days away camping with the family, I’m feeling revived and motivated (albeit, a little sunburnt,) and ready to kick 2017 off with a blogging bang! Keep your eyes peeled!
