I don't doubt he would want us to ignore reality.

I'm sorry Chesty. I want you to be happy. I would be remiss to not agree with Jonathan about Disney's ethics, however. Hopefully Disney treats you with the dignity, respect and compassion you deserve. As it stands, they don't have a history of doing that. :x

i didn't know Disney was so unkosher. Thats really crappy. But still, this internship is a big deal for me in terms of the direction i am trying to go in my life.

Jza, I will prolly actually be starting out waitressing or hostessing which doesnt sound great i know, but i will be taking classes from them as well. This is basically getting my foot in the door and from there who knows. Basically I plan to excel wherever they place me and hopefully be asked to extend at which point i would audition again for the performing department.

Ethics are tricky.

Just don't feed the beast too much. I think. Maybe.

And bring me a map of the tunnels. I hear there are tunnels.

Good to hear things are headed the way you desire, congrats.

Don't let all the anti-Disneyists get you down. The best way to change things is from within, and I imagine you'll do well in the internship there.

Thanks Ash for saying I was a motivator (I think that was directed to me) :P

Congratulations on your internship position and Happy Birthday to you. I think you were one of the first to see the Vegan Fitness Built Naturally Trailer. Thanks for ordering the shirts, you should wear those around Disney on your off-hours :)

To be honest, my very first impression was much like Jonathan's. When I think of Disney, I don't always think the best thoughts.

But I also agree that it could just be a step along the way in the direction you are trying to take your life, and having a vegan there can help cause some changes within. Obviously major changes take large numbers of like-minded people and usually years, but I think you'll be able to have a positive influence on people.

I know what it's like working for large corporations as a vegan. I've done it in the past. I've worked for some of the world's largest companies within certain industries (24-Hour Fitness, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Steiner, and others). Sometimes I felt bad about working for a large corporation but I was able to have a positive influence on others and I was able to have a lot of fun, make a bunch of money and put it toward vegan purchases, and learned a lot in the field I was working in.

So Disney is not great, maybe not even good, maybe they're bad or maybe they're evil, but maybe it's just one rung on a much bigger ladder you're climbing to fulfill the dream we should all have which is to "Let yourself be silently drawn by the strong pull of what you love."

Have a great time my sweet friend,

-Robert

Hey Rob, thanks for the kind words. I really hope this opportunity can help take me in the direction I want to go and open more doors for me. And maybe someday I will be able to make a difference. I already try my best to be a positive person and hopefully be a positive force in the lives of people around me (Something which i totally learned from you) and i hope to continue doing that.

I will definately be wearing my t-shirts around. Now I have 3 different ones! And a bright orange beanie that topher gave me. Which is always sure to draw attention. hehe. Who knows maybe I will meet some other vegans who are also working there.

Thanks again for understanding, and to everyone who has offered their opinions and kind words.
