This week has been eventful to say the least! Last Tuesday my toe was numb after work, and it's still not quite right, I don't know why. I thought that would be the biggest event of my week...boy do I wish it was!
I finally finished my custodial training on Thursday, only to find out I need to be recast because a drivers license is required for the role. All this after working eight days straight! Phew!
After I got off work on Thursday I was ecstatic to finally get to play in the parks the next two days without having to worry about working later. But that was not how my "weekend" would play out! I woke up bright and early Friday morning and found myself puking! (Code V as we call it here.) I spent the entire day lying in bed with a high fever and a few more episodes of code v. The next day continued with the fever, getting up to 104.5 degrees. The next day I still had a fever and was too dizzy to walk, which meant I had to call in sick to work. (eeek! Nooo!!!) That night my roommate took me to the emergency room and they pumped fluids into me (so I could walk straight again), and we figured out I had a bladder infection. I was ordered a round on antibiotics and 3 days rest.
Today is my second of those three days rest. I'm still a little dizzy and having a hard time eating but the antibiotics are starting to work. It's all been an adventure (with lots of crying)! I'm ready to go back to playing in the parks and working again! After the stye in my eye goes away. (just a little gift today to top it off!)
Stay safe! Stay healthy!
I arrived almost 2 weeks ago, so I wanted to share an update on how things are going. The first week I didn't get to do much, I had a few general meetings about housing, being resort custodial, and paperwork. I had my first training class called Traditions, where I learned about the company. During that I received my name tag, the iconic sign of Disney cast member, and my card that gives me access to the parks.
The day after Traditions, Sunday, was my favorite day by far since I've been here! My new friends Robert and Sarah took me to Magic Kingdom for the first time, and we went to church that night. I had a great time finally riding attractions I've been avoiding my whole life. The day, and finally being in Magic Kingdom, was great fun, but by far the best part of the day was spending time in fellowship with these two wonderful people! I look forward to many more adventures with them!
A few other updates: I got my first choice apartment, a 6 person 3 bedroom in Chatham (although there are only 5 of us right now), which is the cheapest and closest to the buses. My roommates are nice but it's interesting because they all knew they were going to be roommates before arriving, so I was the random thrown in, so I'm kind of the outsider right now as I get to know them. I started working at my location yesterday (after 4 days of classroom type trainings) and it's going well, my coworkers are nice and spoil me a little bit. I'm excited to start working on my own in a week. All in all, everything is going well and I'm excited for the next 4 months.
