Tomorrow I am going to a taping of the Disney Christmas Parade!! I have to get up at 4am but its totally worth it. Im gonna be pumped.
Monday, November 23, 2009
Amanda and I are no longer friends. It was a decision that was not easily reached but there it is. She disrespected me by continually lying about something trivial, which only led me to wonder what else she was lying about to me. It is extremely difficult to live in a room with someone who you no longer respect or trust.
So last night I worked from 9pm to 3:45 am. I have to say working that late was amazingly fun. Yesterday was also one of my fellow pirates (michael) birthday. So Michelle and I got all of our guests in and out of the boats to sing happy birthday to him. It was extrodinarily fun and I hope we made his birthday special. After our shifts ended, we all went to breakfast in the mousketeria. I got a biscuit, hash brown and grilled cheese.
I have been sick for the last couple of days. My voice has been in and out and my throat is swollen shut (cute, right?). Hopefully I will get better soon, as my 11 hours days begin soon.
So crimes of fashion (this cheesy abc family movie) was on soapnet. Now this sounds like nothign to exciting except for the fact that I have been looking for this movie for over 4 years. I litterally screamed out loud when I saw the commercial. Im watching it as I type this. It makes me super smile.
Tomorrow....Cait, Emily, Matt, Joey, and I are going to look at a possible house that we might move into for next semester. Its in a gated neighborhood, 5 bedroom and everything I wanted. Im very excited, so fingers crossed!!
Well Im off for the night, Luke is coming over and we are gonna watch christmas movies.
Tuesday, November 17, 2009
I still haven't heard anything about the professional internship which leads me to believe that I didn't get one. While thats sad, it does give me a new challenge. I can apply to work at Disney full time (hopefully in an area pertaining to my degree). Cait, Emily, Matt and Joey are all staying as well so we are looking into getting an apartment together.
Twilight: new moon comes out on friday and I dont work till 5:15! Im really excited to go see it!
Tonight Luke and I are going to Epcot to have dinner in France and go on the rides! Epcot is my favorite park. I love to walk around the countries and just look at the details.
Speaking of the countries...this past weekend, Emily, Matt, Dana, Cait, Jenna, her bf Ken, Evan, Casey, Lindsay and Jaclyn all went drinking around the world. Emily, Matt, Jenna and Ken were the only ones who did all the countries (Cait skipped the beer countries and I just drank in a few countries). I had Baileys and hot chocolate in Norway (AMAZING), Processco in Italy, Lemon slush in France and the Toranto-polian in Canada. It was epic. We were also staying in Bay Lake Towers which was really cool to see. The next day we stalked space moutain and waited for it to open. We got to ride it during its soft opening!! Coolest thing ever (even though I don't like space moutain).
Well I am sick again (I think Dana's plague is catching, haha) so Im gonna go take another nap before my Epcot date tonight.
Friday, November 6, 2009
The Halloween party was SO much fun! I went as Carman Sandiago and Luke went as a scarecrow. Amanda was a ref, Emily was a pin up girl, Cait was greek and Matt was a tourist. There was so much to do at the parties! We got a ton of candy and even more pictures (they're up on facebook).
Yesterday Emily, Cait, Matt, Dana and I went to EPCOT for the last week of food and wine. We had amazing slushy cosmos in France and I tried escargot which was suprisingly delishious. I also had the chedder cheese soup from Canada. It was AMAZING.
About a month ago Luke and I started dating. So far its been a little hard because I work so much and I have to balence everyone with only 2 days off. I usually make the plans as well and well....we all know how well I make decisions. I'd rather someone else choose everything for me.
A week or so ago I began taking Luke to different resorts because he hadnt seen them. We did Animal Kingdom Lodge, the all-stars, Coranado Springs, the swan and the dolphin. I cant wait till they decorate and we can go and visit them again.
Now the time for extensions has begun. I applied last night and I think Luke might be applying to stay as well. There is still no news on the professional internship. Thats irritating. I want to know what I can do, what my options are. I need to figure out a real plan.
I really need to some praying to get my life back on track and figure out where I need to be.
Tuesday, October 6, 2009
Ive also been hanging out a lot with this kid I met in my adventureland training group. His name is luke and he is a jungle cruise skipper. In fact, we are going to EPCOT tonight. Im super excited because living with the land has just reopened! and I havent been on test track yet!!
Pirates is going well. I've been getting good hours and havent killed anyone yet, so thats really a plus. We just had our costumes changed....instead of wearing long pants we now have to wear short pants and stripped socks. We dont offically change over till October 18th so im holding out till then.
Snow white and the 7 dwarfs comes out today!!!! SO SO SO EXCITED!
Saturday, September 19, 2009
Yesterday I had a very productive day with Cait. We went to property control but didnt get much (i got a hair towel). We went to the pool and got a tan while we did our laundry (yay for multitasking) and then we decided to get some sonic for lunch. Turns out that all the sonics in the sourrounding area have closed and died. We drove FOREVER and didnt find a single one! We ended up at panda express and Joey met me, Cait and Matt there.
Today went pretty much the same. Cait and I went to see Matt at animal kingdom since he is being deployed to epcot for the food and wine fest. Then we went to property control (I have a weakness for cheap disney things, haha). Then I was off to work.
Tuesday, September 8, 2009
I have been doing randomly fun things. Last night we went resort pool hopping. It was random and amazingly fun. We also got to watch wishes from the pool which was a really cool experience.
Tuesday, September 1, 2009
Anyways after that the park was emptying out so Brittany and I went home to dry off and warm up. We also had a bit of game night at the girls (Justine, Casey, Caroline and Cathrine) apartment. It was Matt, Lauren, Evan, Caroline, Joey, his ladyfriend Jenny, Me, Amanda, Brittany and a few others joined later. We played Marry, Date or Dump and Catch Phrase.
Off to work tomorrow. And the cast preview of the Mickey's not so scary halloween party!
Monday, August 31, 2009
On my Disney weekend...which was Friday and Saturday all of my roommates plus Luke, his roommate Brandon, Evan, Joey, some of joey's friends and Matt went to Jellyrolls. Jellyrolls is a dueling piano bar on the boardwalk of the beach hotel. It was really fun! We had the guy sing Britney Spears to two of our roommates (Britney and Maria) since it was their birthday.
The next day Luke, Maria, Britney, Kari, Meagan, Amanda and I had decided to go to Typhoon Lagoon since it will be closing in October-ish. It was a really fun time. We went on the water coaster and swam with sharks!
Yesterday was my first day of work all by myself! I did every position and it was FABULOUS!!! I didnt mess up and when I was in tower there were no mess ups!!! Im really excited about it!!
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Its so different from my last college program where I had very little guest interaction. I almost think vacation planning was MUCH easier. There were so fewer things that I had to memorize. Im very overwhelmed with how much responsibility we have and how short we are trained for. Its almost scary how much they expect but from a business stand point, I understand it.
Ok, more tomorrow...im super tired and Life with Derek is on.
Saturday, August 22, 2009
Amanda and I just went on a walk around Patterson because we were a little bored and no one was really around to hang out with. Any ways we played the liscense plate game where we walked around and found different or lonely liscense plates. South Dakota was the strangest one we saw tonight.
Well there is this awesome lifetime movie on about being accepted to ivy league schools. Amanda and I are kinda loving it...more tomorrow after training
Friday, August 21, 2009
Today Jeff came on errands with me and Amanda (He pretty much always makes things more entertaining). We went to property control, Access control and then came back to the apartment and just hung out. He also labeled things in our apartment and let me draw a heart on his sneakers ANDDD TOOK OUT OUR GARBAGE!!!!
THENNNN Amanda and I went on a great and grand advernture called food shopping for under $100. Im not sure if I made budget but I think I did. We were late to the pool party but it seemed pretty cool. After that Amanda, Maria and I took Stanley (Amanda's car) to get a bath cause he had bug guts on him from the trip.
Josh came over some time after that and sat in our room and talked to us. He also wanted a behind the scenes tour of Patterson, haha.
Tomorrow Amanda and I are heading to the parks (Starting at Haunted Mansion of course) and hopefully will be meeting up with everyone else once they get thier id's after traditions. Amanda and I get to skip traditions because technically we never stopped being cast members after our last CP. Anyways Im looking forward to it.

On Monday at 4:30 am, My dad and I left NY. We got to NC at about 3, we headed over to Meredith to get my school transcripts and to see the new track (Which is so pretty and it should be since it cost like $20 million). Then we went to Edward McKays and I sold back some books and got a special tin of Mickey Mouse cartoons!! Then it was back to Aunt Leenies where I spent the rest of the night throwing things into my car. (The set it and forget it roaster was not one of them).
Today/YesterdayDad and I left NC at 6:30 am and got to FL at 4:30. Amanda was hanging out with some people at Patterson so I swung by there to say hello. Then we went to check into our hotel. My dads a little mad cause I made him stay at the cheapest hotel I could find ($27). Its sketchville USA. The sink doesnt drain and has someone elses hair, the nightstand has a signature on it and some remnents of books. At least there arent any bugs!! I also had a roommate dinner tonight (we all met at All Star Movies). We ate dinner at the caf and then made a list of stuff that we are going to need.
I am excited to unpack tomorrow. Mostly because I dont know what I really brought! I was such a spaz when I was packing in NC that I am liable to end up with or without anything. I dont know if I packed any socks even!!
Oh I am an offical brunette again. The color came out good and I only had one mishap with the shower curtain and my head.
Well this was a quick post but I wanted to comment and remember and now I need some sleep.
Monday, August 10, 2009
The first day Amanda, Jeff and I went to the Niagara county fair and walked around getting tons of free stuff from the vendors that were there. We got everything from hats to tshirts and water bottles. The saddest thing ever happend though...Paul Bunion was canceled. They said that their insurance fell through but I was so looking forward to defending my last place title!! However I did get roasted corn so overall it was super fun!
Then on Sunday we set up for the party. We ended up playing Kings cup and beer pong (I used water since I had to drive home that night) but overall it was incredible. I love hanging out with Amanda and her family.
Now this week is going to be a bit crazy. I have to cram everything I want to do while home into Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because we leave for camping on Thursday. I also have to clean and pack my car somewhere in there. Thursday and Friday we are camping in Sampson state park and Saturday there is a field hockey tournament and Sunday we pack up and come home. I leave for North Carolina at 4:30 Monday morning cause I have to pick up transcripts from Meredith and I want to go to Edward McKays before going to my aunts house to pack up my car.
Tuesday is down to FL and some Sams shopping and then Wednesday is CHECK IN!!!!
Keep your fingers crossed that I get the Haunted Mansion!!!
Saturday, July 18, 2009
What I would like to talk about today are hypocritical catholics/ Christians. Now before you gather the pitchforks and torches may I just say that this does not apply to all of them (just a lucky few). I have met some really decent people who believe so completely that it is hard to doubt them.
However when I was 16-17 I was in youth group with 2 girls and 3 boys. Except for one boy (who never did anything to hurt me) they were terrible people and even worse Catholics. Those fakes destroyed my faith in high school and led me down a path that I don’t think I would have chosen on my own. The people I though were good Catholics were back stabbers and gossips. Now I am not claiming to be perfect cause we all know that I am not…Yes I can be a bitch and yes I don’t take crap from people and yes I love a good gossip session but that doesn’t make me evil. What that youth group of people did was worse than anything I could have dreamed up.
A 17 year old girl stabbing her supposed best friend in the back in order to get a date with the guy she liked. A grown man emailing a 16 year old and telling her to keep it a secret from everyone including his son. A self righteous boy making fun a girl because she had a crush on him. I could go on but to be honest the details are beginning to fuzz. I lost my faith when I was 17 years old because I learned the hard way that everyone is in it for themselves. They all want something and the sooner you know what it is, the better you can protect yourself.

You've Got Mail
Wednesday, June 24, 2009
"Hi Jessica, I had a great time at the wedding but since then I decided to get back together with my ex-girlfriend so I think it is best we not communicate for everyone's sake."
So that was incredibly depressing but oh well. I guess it wasn't meant to be for whatever reason. What made me feel better is that Sarah told me the ex is SUPER crazy. Like broke up with him because he wouldnt marry her and then heard from someone (who the heck knew anyways?) about me and insisted they get back together. I mean if he is that weak then I dont think he and I would have suited anyways. I tend to be very opinionated and very stubborn.
Anyways on to happier topics...I leave for my vacation in the islands in 2 days!! I love going to the islands. It is always so beautiful and so much fun to go with the people that we go with. I have to pack today which I am excited for and dreading. I ALWAYS overpack but when we go to the islands, we have very little room because of how long we go for.
Disney is offically begining in 54 days. In 55 days I will be in NC packing my car, hopefully going to Edward McKays and Meredith (to steal an agenda). 56 days I will be checking into the Disney College Program to begin my 6 month journey! My goal once I am there is to update my blog at least once while I am there since I know how much I loved reading Corinnes blog and a couple of other people's as well this past spring.
So thats all for now...
Monday, June 15, 2009
I even met a cute groomsman who seemed rather interested in me. However when the time came for him to leave the wedding, he said goodbye to me but didnt ask for my phone number. I casually asked if he had facebook (cause really, who doesnt have facebook at this point) and he said he did. Well I told him to look me up and add me as a friend. 3 days have gone by now and no friend request. So Im thinking over everything that I said and did because as a worrier, i think i did something wrong. Why didnt I ask him for his cell phone number? Why didnt I put my number in his phone? What the hell? And I cant text Sarah to ask about it cause shes on her honeymoon and really this is SO not important enough to inturrupt that.
Now I am resigned to the que sera sera method of life that has served me well in the past years. For those who dont know what que sera sera means, it is whatever will be, will be. One of my favorite sayings actually. Its all very calming.
Thursday, June 4, 2009
Then on the 18th we will make the trek to DISNEY WORLD!!!! Amanda is staying with either Jeff and Andy or Jaelyn and my dad and I are staying at a hotel (wherever is cheapest). I'm actually not entirely sure where Dana is staying.
On the 19th....WE CHECK IN TO DISNEY!!!!!!!!!! The roommates and I are planning a trip to Walmart and the dollar store! Also there is rumored to be a fab pool party!
On the 20th....I bring my dad to the airport and thennnnnnnnn we have the meet and greet dinner!!!
21st- Traditions (Im not sure if Amanda and I have to go to this or not, something we will figure out when we get down there) and then we are going to have dinner at the plaza restaurant and watch wishes. Ah-Mazing!
Tuesday, May 26, 2009
I am back at the nursing home this summer...well I start this weekend. I picked up 2 extra day shifts, which I hate working days for a number of reasons (i dont like getting up early, i dont like waking them up, there are more showers, etc.). I really have to learn how to say no to people.
I really want to take this summer off to kind of relax and rest after 4 years of college but my student loans must be paid. The best I can do is hope for a light work load and I will NOT take any extra shifts.
Monday, May 18, 2009
I also discovered I love weeding gardens, baking cupcakes for my sisters boyfriends birthday and online window shopping. I also discovered I do not like dirt, bugs or sweating.
I can not wait to go down to Disney again. This summer seems like it's going to drag on forever! The first group of people are leaving to go down and Im totally jealous! I want to go now!!!
I have been so busy and I haven't even started working yet!! I applied to be a bus monitor for the Greece school district in addition to working at the nursing home.
Friday, May 15, 2009
Do these high adrenaline shows like flashpoint and NCIS give any one else a load of anxiety? That's probably why I like my Disney movies, no anxiety...I know its Disney so its all going to work out well.
Thursday, May 14, 2009
Gotta go take my sisters to tumbling...more later....
So because i dont have a job and i agreed to babysit my sister I have also apperently taken over the motherly duties of...running the dishwasher, doing the laundry, stocking the camper for memorial day, taking my sister to baseball game, tumbling practice, librarys and boyfriends houses. I also cook and have to take the cats to the vet (we have 5 and im going alone).
oh and a fun suprise when I arrieved home...my sister moved me out of my room. All of my dresser drawers are full of her clothes so really I am living out of a suitcase.

Tuesday, April 28, 2009
I have finals tomorrow, which Ive already mentioned, however I can not make myself prepare for them. I am sure I will regret this tomorrow during the exam, but still. I feel like there is no sense is making myself crazy since I technically already have a degree. What a lazy thought.
Empire State College is driving me CRAZY. I requested a transcript 3 weeks ago. Well...it never showed up at Meredith. Empire said that they never received a request. I sent another request in and still no transcript. I finally wrote a scathing email to the woman and she goes "oh we never had your grade to mail the transcript out". HUGE LIE. I had been checking my unoffical transcript online and the grade (an A) had been posted for a month. Plus I got a letter last week that said congradulations on making an A in your online empire college class. What a dumb lady.
Monday, April 27, 2009

It gives me good hope that we can work this all out and become apartment-mates. I can't wait for August 19th!!
Wednesday, April 8, 2009
I feel so light in realizing this. I have been stressed out and crazy with work for so long that by being done, i feel useless and lazy. I have one more essay on a streetcar named desire and I have to edit 4 essay tomorrow. It should be stressful but once it is done I am leaving to go to my aunt's house and then Cape Hatteras for the weekend and my birthday. My birthday is on Monday, however my aunt has to work so I will be hanging out in my dorm room watching movies and stuff.
I also really want to go see Hannah Montanna: The movie, but no one will see it with me, haha. I need to be closer to Amanda so someone will go see these things with me and NOT mock me like Sarah does.
Tuesday, April 7, 2009
However, I lost ALL of my notes on every subject I have taken and that hurts too. I only have to redo 5 assignments, which thankfully aren't due until later in the semester.

TV, VCR, DVD player and a coaxial cable
Cell phone and charger
Beach towel, suntan lotion and/or sunscreen
Sweater or jacket
Combination lock for the locker in your bedroom
Original employment eligibility documents
Cosmetics and toiletries
Health insurance information
Personal medications, including prescription drugs, if needed
Writing paper, envelopes and pens
Saturday, April 4, 2009
This upcoming week will be very nice after Monday. I have a presentation on the president of the Disney Channel. I HATE giving presentations so this is not at all fun for me. However, after Monday I have no big projects due or tests this week!! It's a free week and then I am off somewhere fun for Easter and my birthday!!
I have no job for the summer. While that isn't entirely true. I have my job at the nursing home, I just don't want to go back to that. I would really like to do an internship in Human Resources over the summer but unfortunately it doesn't look like that will work out.
1 week till my birthday
10 days till my mini-break
5 weeks till Graduation
19 weeks till Disney
Saturday, March 28, 2009
My Birthday (#22) is in 16 days
Graduation is in 43 days
Check in for Disney is in 143 days
I bought my cap and gown yesterday...I have actually debated if I wanted to walk at graduation or not quite a bit. Our speaker is rather boring, it will be rather hot, I have quite a bit of disdain for my school and the only member of my family coming is my mom. It made more sense to simply pack up everything myself, give it all to Aunt Leenie and then just fly home instead of paying for mom to fly down here and then flying both of us back. However, the more I thought about it, the more i realized that people don't usually regret things that they do but rather things that they don't do. So come May 10th 2009, at the horrendiously early hour of 9am I will be walking across the stage at Meredith College and getting my diplomas.
My school's formal was last night. I had an amazing dress (that I bought forever ago and never had a chance to wear until last night) and my hair was awesome (tiny side bun...I wish I had longer hair, that way it would have looked better but oh well).
No one made me dance which made me very happy. I sat in the back and got to watch all of the dresses (the good, the bad and the seran wrap ones) and I was privilaged enough to see all the sex happening on the dance floor. Since when is it acceptable to pull up your dress and grind on your boyfriend in the middle of a crowed dance floor? Sadly I wish I were making that up. There were quite a few girls who were so incredibly drunk that they could no longer stand and their boyfriends/dates had to carry them around. Also, there was a huge fight and the guy was escorted out of the dance. I am not sure what happened but it looked rather serious.
My roommates birthday is on Monday so I gave her all of her birthday presents last night and she was really excited about them! I bought her Guiness glasses (she spend a semester in Ireland and is rather attached to anything Irish), drinking glasses for her new house, a book, mint kisses and an apple peeler. Her and her fiancee are moving into their apartment today...well he is moving in, she is still going to be living with me till the end of the school year but will move in with him after the wedding.
Its 10:30am on a saturday and there are A LOT of girls in the fitness center right now. More than I would have expected for a early saturday morning. Glad I didn't skip work today.
In Disney news, Monday and Tuesday are my live presentation here! I am very excited to see Andy (my recruiter) again, as well as the reps from UNC (they are rather far and we dont get to see them often). Plus I love getting to talk about my experience at Disney and lets face it, the movie makes me cry everytime. There is so little Disney in my life right now that it is sad. 143 days until I check in for my program, but that means 140 days till anything Disney really happens. I have all my bedding, towels, clothes that I want to pack, etc completely ready since I am just packing up my dorm room and essentially bringing that. The one thing I really want to do differently this time, is write to my family. I remember being little and LOVING any mail that had my name on it. I really want to write postcards to my sisters more this time down.
I need to decide if I want to bring my TV again. I was the ONLY roommate who brought a TV last time so it went out into the living room which caused it to get quite a bit of use. If our (mine and Amandas) room has a cable plug, I might just leave it in our room. I don't want the other roommates to think we are hording it, but it is rather old and I would prefer to have it kept intact for another 5-6 years before I have to buy a new one.
Things people forget to bring to the Disney College Program:
-Stamps (you'd be suprised how many of your friends will want postcards)
-Stuff for when you get sick
-Slippers (think about how many people have lived in the apartment before you and what might be living in that carpet).
-Egg crates for the beds
-Coffee Makers (I will be bringing my coffee maker...will I be making coffee with it? We'll see)

Saturday morning I woke up bright and early at 730 so that I could go to target and buy TWILIGHT!! My roommate Sarah was a tad bit annoyed that I made her wake up super early but she dealt with it and we went. We also went to Pet Smart and bought some new fishes since Michael Phelps bit the dust over spring break and Unagi died 2 days ago. Sarah left to go see 'Last house on the left' and spent the night at Jesses. I must have dozed off at 9-ish because the next thing I knew, the dorms fire alarm was going off. So I grabbed my cell phone and a jacket and went outside thinking it was a drill and we would be back in soon. Suddenly the fire trucks (yup more than one) pulled into the parking lot. I was talking to my aunt about what was going on and then my phone died! Stupid phone! Anyways an hour later we were allowed to go back into the dorm. I still don't know what happend but it was an adventure. I got to watch twilight several times last night since Sarah wasnt home.
Sunday started out rather lovely. I did my laundry and planned to lay around until I had work at 530 (since I had finished my monstrous load of homework on saturday). Unfortunately after my laundry was done and folded, I began to feel really sick. I had only eaten an orange earlier and I am rather thankful I did not eat more since that orange was rather speedy in coming back up. So here I am at work, praying I do not throw up anymore but I dont think I will since I have nothing in my stomach now. Sarah is going to buy me saltines and possibly french fries in hope that one or the other will calm my stomach down. Oh why am I at work you ask? Because no one would answer thier phones and take my shift and if I dont open the fitness center I get into big trouble. Oh well.
Tuesday, March 17, 2009
In Disney news...I actually don't have that much Disney news. We are nearing our live presentation here at NC State & Meredith. It is 1 week and 6 days away. Is anyone else having a really hard time focusing on their school work and not daydreaming about living in Disney World? I keep letting my mind wonder during class and it seems to be catching up with me.
4 weeks till my birthday!!

In case you couldn't tell by my oh so subtle hints, I hate my school. A lot. Going to an all girl school was/is my biggest mistake ever. I hate most girls so why should going to an all girl school be any different. Some of the professors here are wonderful but other staff in the residence life offices and in registrar are just mean, lazy and rude. I have had the worst experience with them and can not wait to be free and unable to be reprimanded any longer by them.
Bare with me...just a bit more bad news before I move onto happier topics. So there is this guy that I went out on a date with...maybe 3 times, he is my roomates finances friend. Hes a super creeper in my mind. Anyways he is going down for fall advantage and got accepted in attractions. Awesome. I have this this terrible feeling we will either be neighbors or we will get the same attractions. Either one and I actually might consider dropping the program. JUST KIDDING. Like Amanda would ever let me quit.
Now on to happier topics: I found out that someone I graduated high school with will be going down on the Disney College Program also! Its kind of strange but still really cool at the same time.
I am going to buy a new fish this week...so I need suggestions on the name. And before you say it...I have already had a fish named blowjob.
Amanda and I are suffering through midterms...we are constantly texting eachother and talking about dropping out/ talking the other out of dropping out. I miss her a lot and LOVED that she suprised me over spring break with a mini visit!!
In 4 weeks I will be 22, which is also exciting! I'm not sure why but I like 22!
I know that I already mentioned this but I am 2 months from graduation!!! WOOOOOOO!!!

This week has been spring break so I've hanging out with my family and getting some homework done. I have finished humor in the workplace so hopefully I get a C in the class and I can transfer the grade over to Meredith and be done!!
ps. I <3 Arbor Mist Sangria wine. Just an FYI, lol

I interviewed on January 27th with Lindsay and I was accepted for attractions. So fingers crossed that I get the haunted mansion everyone!! I tried to accept my role and I couldn't because it says that the semester I was accepted for was Spring 2007! Holy bajeebus. So I had to email tech support. I have also decided to hold off on accepting so I can wait for Amanda and we can accept together, so we can plan out the dates and stuff.
Now I have to go to class and pretend to be focused on Mark Twain, when really all I am hearing in my head is Disney music.
Today's haunted mansion fact: The Barenaked Ladies performed the 'grim grinning ghosts' song as a on the 1996 album, "Disney's Music from the Park."

Still no magical purple folder from Disney and Tuesday will be the first opportunity for it this week since we don't have any mail tomorrow. I mean we still have school but not mail, seems unfair. A lot of people are calling that we will get our folders on the 23rd but I think it will be the 25th or sooner. I am hoping it is this week but it doesn't look likely.
Nothing big has really been happening in my life. I've been doing homework, going to class and going to work. It seems like this semester I have more homework than I have had any semester previously. Which is strange because I am only taking 20 credit hours when I have clearly taken more in previous semesters. Business policy cases are super hard and continue to haunt me in my sleep. My batteries died for my video camera so I can't make any vlogs unless I figure out how to use my webcam. I get to go to a sabres game next thursday that I have been looking forward to FOREVER!
My mom just got texting on her phone...She's learning but she hates texting.

I think I've decided that I'm super excited about recreation-AS LONG AS I DON'T GET AN ARCADE. I would be so happy incredibly happy to work at the Grand Floridian Health & Spa work out center(I dont even know if this is somewhere we actually could work, but it would be super cool). I would love to possibly be working at one of the golf courses or mini golf course or the marina. NOT AN ARCADE!!
WHY CAN'T MY PURPLE FOLDER BE HERE YET?! UGH maybe tomorrow.
Did I mention that I DONT WANT TO WORK AT AN ARCADE? perhaps I should explain why. See Migraines are hereditary in my family (thanks mom). Whenever I am exposed to super bright lights, excessive overtly loud noise I ALWAYS end up with a Migraine. Therefore I avoid concerts, looking directly into light and ARCADES. NO ARCADES EVER!!!

Valentines day- So I have nothing to do for Valentines day (are you shocked?), so I will probably go to the $1.50 theater (They are showing Twilight and Bolt) and treat myself to popcorn.
I go home for spring break in 2 weeks!! YAY!!
No purple folder yet, maybe this week but more likely we will get it while I am at home and I won't know till I get back.
Anyways that's it for now, time for taco bell and compensation and benefits case #2!

Business Policy cases are going to kill me. Thankfully you can rewrite the cases for a B after she debriefs the class about it.
So no purple folder yet, but I didn't really expect it to be. Dana made my day today because she totally mentioned me in her vlog!! It made me smile big time!!
I'm dying my hair on friday!! yay!!! Hopefully it will be beautiful and I will love it so much that I do not want to change it soon.

Is it the end of February yet?? Waiting to find out if the plan I have (for the rest of my life) will work out or not stinks! Whats even worse is...I dont have a back up plan for what I would do if I dont get the CP. I guess I would just move to Flordia and work somewhere...though Im not sure where or doing what but something would work out...
Also, today is my last day as a brunette. My roommate is dying my hair blonde tonight!! So I am very nervous but hopefully it will turn out well.

School- I know I complain about it all the time but I am really thankful for having the opportunity that I do. I have worked really hard to get these two degrees and Meredith has (non willingly) helped me along.
My jobs- I have always been very lucky in my work. Every job I have had, I enjoyed...at least for a bit. I loved Disney, i love the nursing home and my sweet old people.
My family- My family is crazy but I love them. They fight, are mean to each other and make me angry but I miss them so much.
Disney- What would my life be without Disney? I would have no real purpose. And would likely have to find a real job.

It was a snow day so classes were all canceled. Sarah and I stayed in bed and watched ABC news. We love Joe Biden and were very excited to watch him become the vice president of United States of America.
More later...Barack is making his speech...

The English debacle-I have to go to the other English class (not Jane Austen) and hope and pray that someone decides to drop out otherwise I won't graduate. I need this English class to fulfill my gen ed requirement.
Humor in the workplace- This seems like an interesting class but I'm a bit nervous about it. There are only 4 big assignments and are spaced out very well so hopefully this will work out. I have to keep a humor journal so this will kind of serve that purpose as well. I have a long weekend this week and will hopefully get 2 modules completed. Anyways, that's my goal.
Disney- I haven't heard anything about the application but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the applications will go up next Tuesday. I'm so excited about completing this process again that I am finding it hard to concentrate on my regular school work.
Business Policy- Scary class. The professor basically walked in on the first day and said 'at some point during this semester I will make you cry'. How horrible is that?! The workload is intense but hopefully doable...I just need to get into a routine. We work in groups, which will be a blessing and a curse cause who are we kidding, I hate speaking to groups of people! but it will be nice to have the support of people that may understand the assignments better than I do. I'm sure I will be sharing a lot about this class.
Organizational behavior- I love this class! It is a combination of both my psych degree and my business degree. I look forward to the class but am worried that with business policy right before it, I wont be able to do all the required reading.
Employee relations & Comp and benefits- I have Kristy again!!! Yay!!! I love love love these classes, we always have so much fun. It is the stuff I want to be learning and Kristy always has great relatable stories that make the information stick. I'm super excited about these classes.
So those are my Spring '09 classes. Fingers crossed everyone that this is my last semester.

So I am taking 5 class this winter (Health, fitness for woman, Microsoft access, Microsoft excel and sociology). So far I have completed Health and Fitness for woman. Both were fun and interesting classes. Microsoft access and Microsoft excel might actually kill me. They are difficult classes and are only 1 credit!! The professor seems to be on a crazy power trip and its driving me nuts!!
ANDDDDDDDDDD I can't take the Jane Austen class that I was so looking forward to because the professor thinks that the workload would be an overload for me. So now I am (hopfully) taking African American Literature with a (rumored to be) fabulous teacher.
DISNEY IS SO CLOSE!!!
