Hello again world. I’m back! It’s been a fair few months since my last blog so here’s the skinny -
I left Disney Cruise Line
Now before the fan boy’s and girl’s get the hump and unfollow. I left on very good term’s with Disney and may possibly return one day, it was one of the greatest years of my life, but, after the magic making and dream weaving, it is what it is, a job. A difficult job. I’ve been asked for advice many times during my time with Disney and my biggest tip is to never underestimate the level of energy that goes into every Disney day. Those cast members work so hard. Crew member’s particularly work for 10, 11 even 12 hour days, not a single day off, for four to six months at a time. Yes, its a challenge. Those followers of mine who are frequent cruisers or “park-ers”. I implore you, never forget how hard this collection of nutters work so that your dreams come true.
So yes after a second successful contract. I handed in my notice. For those of you who don’t know. I have this tendency of getting itchy feet and thus, I simply felt professionally, psychologically, grammatically, it was time for me to raise anchor and begin a new adventure. So, as my mother would say “It’s been six months since you last called… where are you?”
It’s Jolly ol’ London!
Yes I’ve taken a swing at my Origin Capital. I’ve discovered the joy of London Underground, £5 pints and slow walking Tourists when I am attempting to “i-95” it across the city.
Since coming here in March I’ve been grabbing a few auditions here and there. Renting a small room in the East of the city. Like most Entertainers in London. I’ve got myself a “/job” *noun-Slash job*. As a seasoned Actor/Barman/Waiter, I’ve worked in a Bubble Tea Store, a Bar in Waterloo, and in a week or so I’ll be beginning my newest job at Oblix, on the 32nd floor of London’s newest and tallest building The Shard. Rather excited Luke!
hmm, anything else. Oh, turns out leaving Disney means having days off, means I can do stuff! I have begun bouldering, been at it for about a month now. It’s a great sport and I highly recommend you to give it a try (and you). I’m currently training for London’s Tough Mudder in June too so I’m spending a lot of time jogging the Thames and dodging the Tourists. I have this great running app that puts you in the Zombie Apocalypse storyline and you have to outrun Zombie Hordes whilst collecting provisions to stay alive. Lots of fun and so far I haven’t been eaten!
So that’s my update. Now, all you followers. It’s been an honour and a privilege to have you on board my DCL adventure. If you’re in the mood. How about joining me in this new one?
Peace and Love
