Disney - Earned My Ears

All week long I've had this little red tag sticking out of the bottom of my name tag, with the words, "Earning My Ears" written on it. What it tells every guest in the park is that I have no clue what I'm doing because I'm new.
But yesterday...yesterday, the tag came off.
I've earned my ears.
Mouse ears, that is. 
Today I'm going into work and I won't have a trainer there to be at my side if I mess up.
Now that's intimidating.
But I'm actually really excited to figure out how this system works and to give it my best shot... go big or go home, right?
That's kind of been my catch phrase this week: go big or go home.
There's no in between for me here in Florida.
Either I'm going to give it all I have, every ounce of blood, sweat, and tears...or it's not worth my time to be here.
Either I'm going to learn everything that I can possibly learn and take away as much as I can from this experience... or I'm just wasting my energy.
I'm so pumped up right now on this new job and this new experience, I love how much I'm learning both on the job and off the job.
I love how much I need to learn.
Oh, and I'm doing something a little scary for me, I'm posting this blog to facebook.
In the words of my dear, wise sister, "Manda, you need to get over yourself and just put yourself out there. People want to hear how you're doing."
I've been a little chicken to do it because my words are where all of my thoughts come out, the good, the bad, and the ugly...and sometimes I'm not sure if people want to read what I'm saying. But I'm trying really hard to get over myself and let you guys catch a glimpse of my life right now.
So welcome to my blog, if this is the first post you're reading. If you're really nice and tell me that you're reading this, I might mail you a Mickey Mouse post card.
And yes...that was bribery.
