To be quite honest, my job really is awesome. I mean, who can say PART of their job is to meet and take pictures with the stars who make Disney magic real? But like I just said, this is only part of my job. You could say it's the glamourous side of it.
The part you don't see on Facebook is that all of these pictures are taken before even parks open in the early morning. In Florida summer, this means humidity at its finest (for us ladies, it means: AAAAHHH!!!!)
With that being said, I ask you to take a second look at these pictures and notice what I now call my "Disney bun" style (you can find it in all different ways. Maybe I should start a Pinterest board). lol In other words, it's the only style in which I can somehow manage my morning Mufasa hair.
But going back to the part of my job that you don't see is that I get to meet these characters because I'm usually working on TV show productions or photo shoots that are done very early in the morning and sometimes take long-hour days and weekends to produce. If you saw the amount of hard work and dedication that go into all of these you'd be impressed.
But all of the hard work that at least I put into each of my projects is very much worth every minute of my time. The people I have met in the little time I've worked here have been some of the most awesome people ever, and they come from all over the world and from all different backgrounds.
I guess the point I'm trying to make is that if you really enjoy what you're doing every day, it doesn't really seem like it's work (of course, working at Disney sure helps a lot). But find that one thing you love to do and give it your 110%. I promise you, all the time and effort you put into it will seem like you're just having a blast. Maybe your thing is teaching, or solving cases, or even playing music for a living.
All I'm saying is forget about what every one else is up to and concentrate on enjoying what you do. In the end, the only person you need to make happy is yourself and only YOU can do that. :)
