Let's go for a ride! Way Back Wednesdays & Wee Bit About ME!

So I found a new little blog carnival to join in this week. So I am sorry but since I have ADD and  I think both Way Back and Wee Bit Wednesdays are cool that is what I will do from now on until my ADD takes over and I switch it up again. How Fun!

This week's theme is First Job

My first job was a cafe/food stand worker at Castle Park.

Well that was my first actual paycheck job. I use to always babysit but right when I turned16 I begged and pleaded with my mom to let me get a job.She told me I could apply for 1 job only and if I got it great but if not than I was not to ask again until I was 18. So I went to the local amusement park and applied for the only job you can get if you are underage, working with the food. They told me there were no positions available when I got there and I said "oh thats alright, thanks anyway" in my bubbly manner (I was super bubbly back then). I guess that was enough for them because they then hired me right on the spot because "I had spunk" apparently. I was beyond excited.

I worked at Castle Park for 1.5 years full time during the summer and then only on weekends during the school year. I quit when it got too much to juggle school, track, and work. I had so much fun working there. I would normally work in the ice cream cart (where there was no AC and I would be cooking funnel cakes all day long) or the Churro Cart. The churro cart was my favorite because it was right by the Log Ride and the Ferris Wheel, it was also located under a tree...yay for shade!! This also was the cart that got the most traffic so it was so much fun. Working at an amusement park is filled with lots of friends, adventures, drama, and great stories. Best place for people watching! Some key things I remember:
  • Free Pretzels, churros, ice cream, and funnel cakes. Ooo so yummy. My favorite was lightly salted pretzels with mustard.
  • Sweet little kids figuring out money for the first time and how to buy things. I liked helping them out and they were always so proud to be "big kids"
  • Getting flipped off by little kids. Yah where are their manners? and their parents? A little 5 year old flipped me off, geez. Sad thing about this park is that parents basically used it as a babysitting tool for their 12 and 13 year old kids.
  • Watching people make out on the bench right across from the ice cream cart...young love. EWW
  • Working with some of my close friends. When we took breaks together we would get to ride the roller coasters.
  • Of course when we were off for the day we would still be at Castle Park because it was free fun and the "happening place to hang"

{one} if you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Ok so I wish I could be sweet like leigh and put hate as that is a pretty fantastic answer. Instead though I will say above all it is horrible drivers. This covers those who drive too slow, too fast, cut people off, follow too closely, and any other bad driving habbits

{two} if you could go on vacation for the next month with an unlimited budget, where would you go?

Really!!! Hmmm I would have to say a trip to Europe.  With the longest time being spent in France. I really want to visit Paris and now Kevin showed me Monte Carlo. I also want to visit Italy, Spain, and England.

{three} cats or dogs?

Both!! I cant choose. My little dog is the cutest, sweetest, and most lovable dog ever. My one kitten is super playful and both of the cats love to snuggle. See how can you deny these babies?

{four} would you rather date a lot of people or be in a committed relationship?

I prefer committed relationships. I just have always been a relationship girl

{five} would you rather own a luxury yacht or a private jet?

Hmmm this is difficult. I would say a jet though. I could have a lot more freedom in getting places. Would it be wrong of me to use it to take the short trip to vegas or SF?

{six} what was the last book you read?

I finished Secrets of a Shoe Addict and now I am reading Chasing Harry Winston.

{seven} would you rather be really hot or really cold?

Really hot... My back hurts and I get sick when I am really cold.
{eight} if you could change your name, what would you change it to?

Something that has a legitimate nickname. I love the names Aurora (rory) and Isabella (izzie or bella).

{nine} what did you dream about last night?

I don't remember at all. The night before I apparently was dreaming about property taxes because I was shouting about them in my sleep.

{ten} if you had to throw away either your tv or your computer, which would you throw away?
TV... I couldnt deal without my computer.


  1. Great post!! 5 year olds flipping you off?!?! WTF? That's crazy. lol. I'm with you on the South of France!!!

  2. Oh wow. I sure learned a lot about you. Working in a theme park sounds fun. My cousin worked in one before too and she met a lot of really wonderful people. And oh the kids there were all kinds, some noisy, some sweet, and yes little kids who were having fun flipping people off too.
    Hmmm...jet or yacht? For practicality I'd go for a jet too it's just easier and faster to travel that way.

  3. Cute blog! Sounds like a fun, or at least entertaining first job! And I love dogs too, mine is named Isabelle, as a matter of fact - I love any version of that name, and am hoping I can get away with using it on my child one day - maybe...? :)
