If you had to legally change your name, what would you change it to?

I would keep my name exactly the same! I love my name! :)

Ask me anything

Deployment and playing!

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!

If you could have any car you wanted, what kind of car would you get?

What's your favorite quality about yourself?

I love that my mom taught me compassion. That is my favourite thing about myself.

Ask me anything

What's the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?

What time is it? Where am I? Do I have to get up yet? Where's my phone?

Ask me anything

If you could eat at any restaurant in the world tonight, which one would you choose?

I would definitely definitely definitely choose Cinderella's Royal Table :)

Ask me anything

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

February is here!


Today is my Saturday and I am going to enjoy it! I am going to go lay by the pool and soak up some sun (it's 80 degrees here today) and then go play in the parks for a bit, then my friend Taryn and I are going to Ale house tonight to eat!

Everything is going well, except I keep getting deployed over and over again...haha. Hopefully I will be back in Liberty for good soon.

Have a great day everyone!
