As I made friends with the entertainment team in Mexico… an interesting idea popped in both my friends and I’s heads. Why don’t I go down there during the summer and work as a part of the entertainment team for my summer?
Obviously, there would be cons to that but I could and still can only think of the pros. I mean lets be real here… how amazing would this opportunity be for me? a lot of people have been hesitant of this idea but when people aren’t happy for me that almost makes me want to work harder and go to prove them wrong and prove that I will be alright. I’m going to have to grow up some time… right? I travel for the moments that steal my breath away and fill my soul. My adventure awaits….
Talking to the head of the entertainment team at the hotel that we stay at.. he said that I would have to do an interview and write papers for why I think I am a better fit to work and have this position rather then someone who is a resident of the country… so that honestly makes a lot of sense. But, the bad thing is I wouldn’t be getting paid for working. I would basically be doing it as a volunteer project and for the experience. That is okay for me still though? I mean I want to be an English as a second language teacher to Spanish speaking kids so that would look absolutely incredible on applications and would easily get me into the College of Education. It would be an experience of a lifetime.
I would be alone though, with no family. But like I said before, I need to grow up sooner rather then later. Why not start with this? I would spend half the summer in the Explorers Club with the little kids and the other half I would be entertaining the entire hotel. Could you imagine all the friends I would make from all over the world? This would be incredible.
I would have a place to stay: either at the hotel (the entertainment staff have a big room in the back of the hotel) or at an apartment with all the staff in Puerto Morelos. So I wouldn’t have to pay for food or a hotel… I would have to bring money for shopping and other things I wanted but… remember how I have those two free tickets to where ever Spirit flies, I could use them for my airfare to and from Mexico? so if you really think about it I wouldn’t need that much money because I am there for the experience anyway.
I kind of blew this opportunity off when everyone I talked to about it said it was a bad idea but after writing about this right now it’s starting to come back to me…. I really want to do this. I will get back with you guys on my decision!!! pray for me!
