When you wish upon a star...

Anyone who knows me well is quite aware of the fact that I am absolutely nuts about Disneyland. I will go there at every chance I get. I have been planning a trip this October almost since I got home from my trip last October. I've been majoring in Computer Science for quite a while, but as I've gotten farther into the program I've realized that I really don't like doing it. So, over the course of a few weeks I thought about what I would do if I could literally do anything. Where would I be happiest career-wise? I put a lot of thought into this and I decided that the one place where I would really be content and enjoying what I do, would be if I worked at Disneyland.

Now I'm not just talking about being a ride operator or janitor. I'm talking about management here folks. I would absolutely love to be in the business of making people happy. I've spent my life going to the happiest place on earth and enjoying every minute of it, and I would like to be a part of what makes Disneyland a happy place. I'm currently in the process of finding out exactly what requirements they have for the management people they recruit, and I'm going to make sure that I'm the type of person they would hire for that type of position.

Incidentally, the picture in my profile is actually a picture of me at Disneyland, I just zoomed in on the face, and fixed it so that the file size was right for Blogger. Here's what the original picture looked like:

Incidentally, that's me on the left, Kyle (who I work with occasionally at the Space Center) on the right, and Mary Poppins in the middle...the pose was her idea!

The Neverending Story...

Well, I just got back from my younger brother's elementary school talent show. It was a pretty typical show. A couple of kids did karate demonstrations, some singing, some dancing - actually a lot of dancing.

Is it just me or do these things never seem to end? There was one dance number that just went on and on and on and infinitum. I think that there's a part of me that's still watching that number.

My little brother played a number on his flute - I can't remember the name of the piece he played, but he did really well. He also had what I thought was one of the most unique acts. It was pretty typical elementary school fare. There were one or two outstanding acts. One kid did a really entertaining magic act (he was actually quite good, too!), and did I mention my younger brother did well? I did? Oh, well, I guess it's my personal bias.
