Hi to all my followers and readers of this blog. I haven’t posted in a while, as there hasn’t been much to report on lately, however, there has now been some recent developments and another step closer to making my dream come true – To work for Disney Cruise Line (for those if you who don’t know that yet).
After three successful telephone and/or video interviews, I was asked to provide professional references. This was a new step in the process for me, as my ex partner didn’t have to go through this step when he applied to work for DCL two years ago.
It didn’t bother me in the least though, and I provided six professional references as soon as I was able to. Two of the six were references from previous employment, and I doubted whether I was going to get a response from them. My doubts were confirmed, and I had to replace them with more suitable references through the week.
If any of the people who provided me with references read this, this is a big shout-out to you, and a massive thank you, for providing your responses so quickly!
I now await an answer on whether they are satisfied with the references provided, although the recruiter did say that my reference report looked great. That gives me some sense of confidence, however, i am careful to be over-confident as I don’t want to appear arrogant, which i definitely am not.
On another note, I visited my mom for dinner last night for the first time in quite some time, and really enjoyed spending some time with her. Usually it’s just an eat-and-run, but I purposefully stayed a little longer last night, and we really had some quality time together. I love you mom!
For reasons I am not able to publicly divulge, I just couldn’t stand to be home alone last night, and after I left my mom’s place, I went to go watch a movie (alone), and I actually enjoyed it tremendously – not only because it was an excellent movie, but I had some time for (and with) myself, and really used the time to switch off from everyday life and really just relax and enjoy the movie.
I watched Kingsman – The Golden Circle, in which Taron Egerton and Channing Tatum plays. It was so good to watch an action comedy, with a big star name like Channing Tatum, and see that he didn’t play the main role. (You can view the trailer here )
I enjoyed the movie tremendously because it had a fantastic story line, the actors/actresses were all excellent in their respective roles, and the fine humor was hilarious!
Apart from just being very nice to look at, Taron Egerton is also a fantastic actor. His general demeanor, fine humor and radiating confidence in the finely tailored suits of Kingsman, reminds me so much of someone that has recently crept very deep into my heart.
The story is well written, albeit a little predictable, and I was really able to switch off and focus on the movie for the entire duration.
I was one of only three guys in the cinema last night, and on numerous occasions the three of us were all laughing loudly at some of the most incredibly funny scenes, which fit in well with the rest of the story.
I have watched several movies over the last couple of months, and although many of them were great, I haven’t enjoyed a movie this much in a long time. It really was worth the time and effort to go watch, and I succeeded well in my mission to get out of the house and relax, and switch off from life for just over two hours.
