What event shaped your life the most?

Probably the death of my grandmother and the deaths of two friends from high school, Jesse and Max. Those event shaped a great part of who I am through the mourning process.

Bring it on

Week 3 of camp is about to start. I get to see my bestie Christine tonight and I get to go work at Disney this upcoming weekend. It's gonna be a great week!
I am going to try to look only at the positives this week and not the negatives. This will be a new experience for me. I'm not necessarily a negative person but I tend to see the negative situations when I should be looking at the positive situations.

Hope everyone has a great week! :)

Sunday, June 26, 2011


I get so incredibly excited when people have a passion and heart for the same things as me! :) Just wanted to share that!

GAHHHH! 5 more days!

5 more days until I am at Disney again! :) I will be there working for 4th of July weekend and I could not be anymore pumped about it! I already have shifts lined up and everything and I have some pretty awesome plans with my bestest friend! Soooooo excited!

Week 2 of camp review!

This week at camp was a great week! Had some disciplinary issues but outside of that it really was a fun week. In devotions, we taught about the miracle of "water to wine at the wedding" or also known as Jesus' first recorded miracle. It was a great lesson for the kids.

Monday- We went to LaserQuest which is ALWAYS fun time. My code name was "thrillpoints" from the movie last week...haha. All of the girl counselors did names from that movie and then ganged up on the kids as an alliance. It was great!

Tuesday- We went to Boomers in Dania Beach. A lot of really funny things happened here. I had a kid lose his bag and I found it and when I opened it, there were angry birds keychains in it! So I wore one for the rest of the day. Coolest keychains ever. Just saying. And then I had a kid ask me and one of the other counselors if we were "lovebirds" because we hang out a lot. It definitely made me laugh. Kids say such funny things. And then I worked out with Mario and Billy later this day. Well...actually...I ran an extra mile while I watched Mario try to train Billy in crossfit. It was pretty funny.

Wednesday- We went to see Kung Fu Panda 2 in the theatres and it was such a cute movie with a great message in it. It was even used as an example in church later that night at Calvary. I liked that. I went to Calvary with Chris and Matt and it was a great service. Steve Williams from the pastoral team spoke. It was my first time listening to him and he was so funny.

Thursday- This was our Backwards Day theme day. I dressed in PJs (get it? wore my night clothes during the day?). I had a camper dress up like me and she did a pretty good job! Braids, birth mark and all! :) I was very flattered. Then, I got told by another camper that I am "scary" when I play foursquare with the kids because I take no mercy and get everyone out! Made my day!!! haha

Friday- We went to Deerfield Beach for the day and it was so much fun. Woody came to visit and all of the campers just loved it! They all miss him and so do the counselors. He was such a hard worker. Hopefully he will come back and work for the camp in the future. I also got very very sunburnt even after putting sunscreen on several times! Boo!

Well this was a glimpse of week 2 of camp. Hopefully you enjoyed this and laughed along. Leave me some love if you did! :)

1st week of camp

So, the first week of camp is done with. This is how the breakdown went, with some funny comments/stories attached to it!

Monday: Went over camp rules, registration, etc. Didn't have a devotion or anything planned for the first day so me and the girls just kinda chilled and learned about each other during devotions. Then we had lunch and went ice skating. At ice skating, a kid forgot his socks so Melody let him borrow hers right off of her feet and he proceeded to tell me that her socks were "nice and soft." So funny to hear that from a 12 year old boy. Hehe.

Tuesday: We went to Kabooms which is like an arcade type of place. Same kid borrowed Melody's socks again and it was just funny to me because I half expected him to comment AGAIN on how he liked her socks so much. Lost a kid, found him....that was interesting. Learned that 7th grade girls are not as innocent as they appear (one of them was talking about a term I had never heard, looked it up on UrbanDictionary to learn that it was something VERY inappropriate.)

Wednesday: Went to the movies to see Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer which was a HUGE bummer of a movie that led to us getting 1000 negative thrill points (inside joke with the movie).

Thursday: Super hero theme day at camp. Kid wore an army outfit complete with a vest and was so determined to go upstairs and get his vest after being told "NO" many times. Also got told by a boy in 7th grade that I either "got smaller or he got bigger" and I said, well I didn't get any shorter...and he goes "well...I mean....you got skinnier?" as he blushed. Haha, it was priceless because he was legitimately embarrassed.

Friday: We went to Coconut cove which is a waterpark and it was great fun. I just wish we would have stayed longer. We only stayed for about 2.5 hours. Also, learned how to play "Dutch Blitz" which is an insanely fun card game that I am addicted to now. And i had to give first aid to a counselor..(NOT a camper, but a counselor instead) because he scraped his back in the lazy river.

So that was basically the week in a very small nutshell. I will try to keep updating as the summer progresses. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! :)

Home for the summer

Well, I'm finally home for the summer. I worked some of my seasonal hours at Disney and now I am working Summer Camp in South Florida until August. :)

Tuesday, May 17, 2011


Going to the orthodontist today to get my broken bracket fixed, but I am nervous because I was supposed to have my braces off months ago and I am still not paid up on my account. I don't know what they are gonna say or if they are gonna charge me extra...I just don't know. My finances are in such a turmoil right now and I am doing my best to leave it to God, but it's so hard. Plus, they want me to do a consult about my wisdom teeth being taken out and that scares me even more! :( No bueno.

I just hope it goes SMOOTHLY today!

What TV show do you wish was still on the air?

Oh definitely either Charmed or Full House. I loved both of those shows. Boston Public was pretty good too and I love Lincoln Heights.

Program is over.

Well everyone, my program officially ended. This blog will be turning back to a normal blog, not just a Disney blog now!

I am back in South Florida for the week and I will be headed back to Orlando on Thursday to work some more of my seasonal hours. Gotta make that money until summer camp starts back up again.

I hope this post finds everyone in good spirit and happy and healthy! :)

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

I like what this girl said about the Disney College Program:
" I lost money working at Disney but sometimes you make sacrifices to be where you want to be. You get out of the program what you put into it. I was always raised that you get a job because you live the job not your pay. Im not saying that you shouldnt worry about pay but you dont want to be miserable somewhere forever because the pay is great."

Packing and moving

So I am packing...and gonna be moving YET AGAIN, next week. In 5 years, I have moved like 12 times. Hopefully I don't have to do this much anymore. I want my own apartment in August.

Cleaning for inspections

I hate cleaning when I have to. I only like to clean when I feel like it. We have inspections tomorrow morning.

I am watching Mean Girls while I do so, though, so that makes it more okay! :)

It makes me miss high school/college. I love school. I love studying. I know, i'm weird. This is an odd, random post, isn't it? Haha

I am a Mark Representative now, so if you want to buy Mark cosmetics, let me know!

Love y'all!

Old friends

George came back to visit for a couple of days!!! I got to see him last night at work and then after I got off at 3am, we went to IHOP and stayed there til 6am just talking and laughing. It was Celeste, Nichele, George and Josh and I! So much fun. I miss the people from my previous program so much! The people I have met from this program so far just do not compare at all....:/

What's more important - who you know or what you know?

I think it's "what I know". I rely on intelligence more often than anything else.

I am loving running! :) I did a great run today and it felt amazing! I only did a mile today but I am very satisfied with my speed and distance and I know I really pushed myself. My face was beat red, I was dripping sweat, and I could barely breathe but the feeling after: worth it!

Anybody a runner? Any tips?

Do you believe in ghosts? Why or why not?

Absolutely not. I just can't believe in things like that....makes no sense to me.

So my car has broken down. Something has happened and my oil is leaking out all over the place. Boo! Now i have to take the bus until I can get it looked at and be able to pay for whatever is wrong with it. This should be interesting.

I'm loving being back in Liberty Square and i'm consistently trying to find shifts in Strollers because I loved it so much! :)

Hope everyone is doing very well. Only like 50 days left of my program!

How much TV do you usually watch in a day?

Virtually none.

It's my weekend!!

I am actually getting a 2 day weekend this week! Last night I worked until 3am and now I am up and at em at noon today. I have today and tomorrow off and I have no official plans except to hang out with one of my best friends who just came back from NY today and to go to class tomorrow and take my midterm (and kick butt at it). Oh! And i'm going to the mall with some of my classmates tomorrow to work on our group project! :) That should actually be pretty fun!

Well, hope y'all have a great day!

If you had the opportunity to live one year of your life over again, which year would you choose?

So far, I would choose this past year. There are a few things I would choose to do differently in terms of friendships, relationships, jobs, and school. I don't have any regrets from this past year but I could have made much better decisions.

no more deployment!!!

I AM BACK IN LIBERTY SQUARE and I'm loving it! :)

Although, I REALLY loved strollers at Magic Kingdom and would gladly pick up shifts there again! It was so much fun and magical and the people there are great. I do have a lot of bruises from stacking the strollers though, haha.

Hope everyone is having an amazing week so far! :)

Home sweet home

Coming home always feels so amazing. It's refreshing and relaxing and almost makes me want to stay here and NOT go back to Orlando. I love working for Disney but there is something about being with my family, friends and boyfriend that just makes me never want to go back. Especially my family. I miss them immensely...my pets too, as silly as that may sound.

In other news, I am working at Magic Kingdom strollers this week. Hopefully that will go well. I get my new schedule tomorrow and I am hoping and praying I am not deployed again. I NEED to go back to Liberty Square for at least a week.

I went to the orthodontist yesterday! I have 2 more appointments and then the braces are coming off! I am so incredibly happy about that.

Well, hopefully everyone is having a great weekend and remember to keep Japan and the Pacific Rim in your thoughts and prayers!

I am trying so very hard not to be bitter, but i'm deployed AGAIN next week and all I want to do is self-term and go home and start applying for jobs. It's totally not fair the way this has happened to me. :/ If I am not mistaken, it will be my 12th week being deployed and I just can't handle this much longer.

I don't know what to do.....

ALMOST DONE AT WORLD OF DISNEEYYYYYY! Only 3 more shifts at WOD and then guess what? I am deployed AGAIN! This time to Epcot, Future World North! I'm kinda excited about this. I haven't worked at Epcot yet so it should be interesting!

I have been playing at Typhoon Lagoon a lot this week and I am starting to get a really nice tan! Yay, me! :) I don't get a tan very easily so I am super excited about this!

I am going to try to Vlog this weekend, so look for that come Monday or Tuesday!

Extended Hours

I keep getting Force Extended at work because the park hours keep extending. Magic Kingdom: figure out what you want BEFORE the park hours are set. Gosh. Just make them later the whole week rather than extending them day by day.

Sorry, that's my little rant for the day! :)

What song best describes your life right now?

Oh man.....

Definitely "A little bit stronger" by Sara Evans (also featured on Country Strong)

Ask me anything

Emotions run high

Last night, I cried for like 2 hours straight just because I wanna see my family and friends. I am so homesick yesterday and today. I know it will pass but it's just hard being away from people that I am so close to and not feeling like I have anyone to talk to here.

I know God has me here for a reason....just trying to find Him in all of this jumbled mess.

My emotions are just all out of wack and I don't know how to get them back in "wack". I guess just to keep persevering and pushing through them.

Any advice on how to get through crazy emotions?

Thanks! :)

A little bit stronger

This is one of my favourite songs right now, and lately it seems to apply greatly to my life. Everything makes me a little bit stronger. Today, I feel a LOT bit stronger, despite the disappointment that I faced.

So here is: A Little Bit Stronger by Sara Evans (also heard in Country Strong sang by Leighton Meester)

Woke up late today and I still feel the sting of the pain
But I brushed my teeth anyway
I got dressed through the mess and put a smile on my face
I got a little bit stronger

Riding in the car to work and I'm trying to ignore the hurt
So I turned on the radio, stupid song made me think of you
I listened to it for minute but I changed it
I'm getting a little bit stronger, just a little bit stronger

And I'm done hoping that we could work it out
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And, oh, I'm done thinking that you could ever change

I know my heart will never be the same
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay
Even on my weakest days
I get a little bit stronger

Doesn't happen overnight but you turn around
And a month's gone by and you realize you haven't cried
I'm not giving you a hour or a second or another minute longer
I'm busy getting stronger

And I'm done hoping that we can work it out
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And, oh, I'm done thinking, that you could ever change

I know my heart will never be the same
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay
Even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger
I get a little bit stronger

Getting along without you, baby
I'm better off without you, baby
How does it feel without me, baby?
I'm getting stronger without you, baby

And I'm done hoping we could work it out
I'm done with how it feels, spinning my wheels
Letting you drag my heart around
And, oh, I'm done thinking that you could ever change

I know my heart will never be the same
But I'm telling myself I'll be okay
Even on my weakest days
I get a little bit stronger

I get a little bit stronger
Just a little bit stronger
A little bit, a little bit, a little bit stronger
I get a little bit stronger

Shattered, but picking up the pieces

When I went to college, I knew I wanted to teach, but I wanted a career that made more money so I chose psychology with pre-med. Well, science classes proved to be too hard for me and I realized that my heart would hurt every time I lost a patient. I kept the Psychology major because it was too late to really change without being in school for even longer than I was (5 years). When I graduated, I realized that you cannot do a whole lot with my major. So the Disney College Program became a filler for my life while I decided what I wanted to do. Well, recently my mom sent me a link to Teach for America, which would have provided me with a low-cost way to getting my teaching certificate while teaching. I got really excited for it, and spent HOURS on my application and resume. Well....I got news back today that I was NOT accepted for this broken. I was crushed. Devastated. Hurt. And now I am back to square one, which trying to decide what I am going to do with my life. The college program will be coming to a close in 3.5 months and I have no idea what I am going to do. I am going to be spending a LOT of time on my knees in prayer, hoping God will give me some clarity and an answer.

A pirates life for me.

Hey hey hey y'all!!!

Today is my last day working at Pirates of the Caribbean and last night I switched a shift and worked at Pop Century. I. LOVED. IT. It was so much fun, the people were nice, and I liked the managers a lot.

Next week, I am deployed (again) to FANTASYLAND! :) That should be really exciting. I can't wait to Pixie Dust little kids!

I am staying at Saratoga Springs this weekend. I can't wait to see what it looks like and everything. And i'm seeing The Magic, The Memories, and You AGAIN tonight. I love that show so much.

Things are going so well here. I'm loving it.

Love, Me

Saturday, February 5, 2011

Arrrggghhh..... A pirates life for me!

Hello everyone!! Hope everyone is having a GREAT Saturday!

Just a few updates:

1) I will be working at Pirates of the Caribbean next week (deployed AGAIN)
2) I gave away one of my Pirates shifts to work at Pop Century on Thursday
3) I applied for some major jobs in the past couple of days (can't give many details because nothing is set yet, but soon I will)
4) My Disney classes start on Wednesday

But then again, we all know that Disney is pretty freaking amazing, whether you are a guest or working there!

Well, that's all for now. Just wanted to do a little update. I will write again soon and be on the lookout for my new vlog! :)

Home for a weekend

Lots of new people are checking in but I have not really met anybody because I am working so much. I have not seen any new Cp's in my area.....it makes me sad because I am really missing everyone from L-square from Fall.

I went home this past weekend and it was definitely nice to see my family and a few select friends. I miss everyone like stinkin' crazy. I went to my home church for the first time since I came to Disney and it was amazing. Anthony Evans Jr. led worship (pretty cool that he was there when I was there) and the message that my pastor gave on peace was pretty awesome too.

Well, talk to y'all later!

Thursday, January 13, 2011

New people!!!! :)

GAHHHHH! I am seeing a lot of new people around the Chatham Square complex!!! Can't wait to meet new people and make some more lifelong friends here, like I did for Fall 2010!

If we have not met yet, COME TALK TO ME! :) I loveeee new friends!

1 year ago

1 year ago, Haiti was DEVASTATED with an Earthquake that killed many and left even more homeless, without food, without water, without clothing, without anything. Please take some time today to reflect on the things that we are blessed with here in America and the things that many other people in other countries DO NOT have.

Just some food for thought.

New Year

This year: No resolutions. Only setting goals throughout the year, rather than only at the beginning of the year. I think that if you only set "resolutions" at the beginning of the year, you are more likely to not follow through with them. The only thing that I am setting at the beginning of the year, is to try to do something new every single day of the year! I am going to try to log them and share them at the end of every month. Hopefully this goes throughout the year. I think this will be a good way to experience a lot of new things, if I consciously write them down and think about it! :)

And as always, I set a "reading goal" every year. This year, my goal is 24 books. I will also be logging those as well. It will be about 2 books a month, so hopefully I can keep up with that.

Hope everyone is well. I am all moved into my one bedroom apartment in Chatham Square and I have continued working in Liberty Square in my extension.

Have a wonderful week y'all!
