Having a friend that also works at Disney and not at Magic Kingdom has its perks. Victoria is a cast member at Hollywood Studios and she was allowed to invite guests to see a special preview of the Osborne lights. I was blessed to be one of the people she brought along and I was able to meet her outdoor vending family that night. There was festive music and dancing lights the entire time. I was amazed at how festive and pretty the lights were and also how it went perfectly without any problems. I was sad to learn that this will be the last year the lights will be up. I was reminded of the lights in New York that would go up around Christmas time, especially around 5th ave and it made me a bit homesick and sad that I would miss seeing the displays and light shows back in the city.
Graduation came early, almost a month early to be exact. We were invited to our graduation at one of the housing complexes where we obtained a certificate of completion, a memory box and also a chance to take pictures with graduation Mickey, Minnie, Pluto and Goofy. Graduation made me realize how soon the time I have at Disney is coming to an end and I had so much I had not done.
