I’ve been wanting to go back to House of Blues again since my first time going to HOB was such a bust.
I was finally able to convince my DAK friends to go since it’s their last week on the College Program.
We all got out of work at 7pm or 8pm, and raced home to get showered and ready.
By 9:30pm, we all realized how starving we were! I once read a comment “If you ask yourself if you should order pizza, it’s already too late” which is SO true! haha
Once we thought about eating some pizza, we needed it ASAP!
We ordered an Hawaiian BBQ pizza, a Spinach Alfredo pizza, and a cheese bread. Yum!
Once we had all eaten, we headed over to the Chatham bus stop.
I wasn’t going to bring a purse, so I had my friend Nicole hold onto my phone for me.
We all got on the bus, but then I realized I didn’t have my Housing ID!
The bus driver was really rude and even though I was super apologetic, but he wouldn’t let me on. I asked to go and tell my friends really quick what happened, but he wouldn’t let me so I had to get off the bus. Ahhh!
With no phone, I had no way to contact my friends and they didn’t know what had happened to me.
I quickly ran back to my apartment, feeling like SUCH an idiot. I grabbed my ID (I had left it in my work bag) and ran back to the bus stop. I only had to wait about 10 minutes for the next bus and when I got on, there was my ICP friend, Tiantian.
He had come over for pizza, but didn’t want to come out to HOB with us. After he saw us leave, he realized he wanted to go too so he had raced back to his apartment to get his passport to join us. Nice!
Thankfully, it all worked out and I didn’t have to go alone to HOB and try to find my friends inside.
We got to DTD and my friends had been kind (and smart!) enough to wait for me right at the bus stop, instead of trying to find each other inside the nightclub.
We walked into HOB and immediately it was AWESOME!
There was no stupid dance-off going on like last time, and the DJ was actually playing good music.
We stayed for about 1 1/2 hours and left at 1:30am. We got to the bus stop right as the housing bus got there at 1:45am.
Even with leaving HOB early, I didn’t get home and in bed until after 2:30am! Yikes! (You all know how I love going to bed early!)
I am SO glad that I got to go out to HOB again. I finally understand what people are saying when they say HOB is fun.
We had a blast! 🙂

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.
