So basically I suck at posting, haha. I've had a LOT go on in the past few weeks, so I'm just going to do a different post for each one so maybe later on, they'll be easier to find.

Basically almost every CPer will get deployed at least once within the span of their program. Deployment just means that you're being forced to work in a different location than you usually do, but within the same training field. Last week, I got deployed to Adventureland merchandise from Main Entrance Strollers (which is, technically, merchandise) for a week. I'm not gonna lie, it was weird.. you'd think that someone who thought she hated strollers would love to be deployed, but it was awkward. The people in Adventureland were very, very nice (with the exception of the token spiteful coordinator and/or manager), but it's more of a feeling that you're in another dimension or something. As in, your own location (which, for me, is Strollers) is like your family: you may hate things they do, you may get tired of them, and you may want to run away from them altogether.. but at the end of the day, it's still your family. Being deployed is like being forced to stay with someone else's family for a week: they have different ways of doing things, different mind-sets, and though they may be nice, it's just not the same. So yeah, while it was nice to have a different theme for the week, it was still weird. Plus, I didn't even get to work at the Pirates shop! Sad face. But anyway, at the end of the day it's what you make it, and I ended up meeting a lot of cool people that I never would have met otherwise :)


  1. Dude! I work there. Are you done with the deployment? I'm sorry it sucked. I'd have to agree with you. Haha.

  2. Seriously?? That's awesome, too bad I didn't get to meet you there! And it didn't suck, it was just weird and coincided with my change of roommates, so everything was really off last week haha.
