Time to shine!!

Wow! Done done done done done! I am officially DONE as of 20 minutes ago with the semester. I had a project for my online class that was due by 11:00 PM... struggling with the things I needed to upload, it didn't get turned in until 11:02... I really am hoping my teacher has a little mercy and grace in his heart, because if he doesn't, I will not be getting the final grade I was hoping for. Life goes on though and I'm just happy it's over for a month!! I have some really great expectations from this summer. I'm hopping it will be very... renewing. I have a spirit that's ready to grab on to all the happy things in life! So, this is my very relieved self saying it's time to shine! :D

Summer is Approaching!!

Nothing new or unusual has gone on since the beginning of April. The semester is winding down and into finals next week. This semester went by so fast compared to last. I am taking two summer classes and it seems more like I'm going to have a Christmas-like break rather than a whole summer break considering I have just a month off before it's back to the books. It doesn't bother me a bit though. I'm going to Disney World for five months! That's an even better break than summer vacation lol.
I get more and more excited about Disney as each day passes. I've been reading a lot of the discussions and comments others are leaving on the Facebook group and it has made it seem more real to see everyone else just as excited. I found it funny, that through the Facebook group, I ran across a girl from my small school and her name is also Laura. I think it's pretty funny considering I haven't heard of anyone else from LCC who is going to Disney. I did find out a guy from my high school class got invited to work, but he isn't sure if he wants to go. I don't see what his hesitation is lol!
For those of you who are Twilight fans (now I'm not talking crazy addicts or anything haha), I finally just finished Breaking Dawn yesterday. I read the first three books during my senior year, but once college started I never had time to start the last book and finally read it these last few weeks. It was so amazing and so sad though because I have no more material to read! I loved those books! At least I have the last two movies to look forward to :) I'm on to my next new love though. I have fallen for the show Lost. I never watched a single episode until this year. I've been watching it online and checking DVDs out from the library. I'm on season 3. I just love the show! I think I'm going to be obsessed with it for a while until I've seen every show lol.
There was one other thing I have been wanting to do, and that is to watch as many Disney movies as possible this summer to remind me how much I love Disney and all the fun characters! I'm sure it will get me even more excited for the program.

Well, for those of you who don't know, I have Celiac Disease. For those of you who don't know what Celiac Disease is it's an intolerence to gluten. If you're curious you can just type it in to Google and find out more about it. But this is for the interest of those who might have Celiac or know someone who does. There is a website click here that has reviews on different restaurants in Disney World that have gluten-free options! I read over a lot of it and it's a great help! There is a woman who has a blog about the food she ate and there are pictures! The food looks so yummy! I can't wait to go to the suggested restaurants and try some of the GF food!!

I talked about having a potential roommate who has Celiac Disease as well. Her name is Emily and she has the same arrival date as I do, so hopefully we will be able to room together! It's so nice to know someone my age who goes through the same routines as I do :)

Happy April Fools Day! Maybe I'll try and trick someone ;)

Purple Folder

Well, I got my purple folder yesterday filled with information about the program! I'm looking so forward to it! I even have a prospective roommate, so it's awesome! She has Celiac Disease just like me and we would make such a great duo! We both are in QSFB as well :) I picked my arrival date and it's August the 9th. I also joined the Facebook group for Fall 2010 and there is a discussion on a pre-arrival dinner for 8/9. Most arrival dates have a pre-dinner taking place, but I think it will be cool to start meeting people before we get moved in and busy.

Well, in the words of Tigger, TTFN - Ta Ta For Now! :D

Ok guys, it's official. I'm going to Disney Fall 2010! I can't believe I got the email so quickly. I waited about a week and two days. I assume the interviewing process is coming to an end within a month, so perhaps that is why I was notified quickly. I received it at 5:06 AM. Oddly enough, I was actually up at 4:00 this morning. I left at 5:00 AM for my 5 and half hour excursion to Ohio. I hadn't checked my mail until about an hour ago though. It's been a long day, but a pretty darn good one. I've been able to see my daddy, brother, and grandma, and I got my invitation from Disney!

Anyway, of course I am thrilled! I was sitting with my Dad when I opened the email so he was first to know lol. I then proceeded to call my boyfriend, Nicholas, and my mom and stepdad. Everyone is happy! I'm very excited that I will be working in Quick-Service Food and Beverage. It was my second choice basically. I've worked in fast food for about three years and I enjoy it. I love seeing and working with lots of people so it will be great! I haven't accepted my position yet, but that will be done within the next few days here.

It's funny how God works in our lives. Yesterday was not a great day. I had my day planned out and seriously everything did not turn out according to that plan. It was a stressful and hectic day, but today has been the exact opposite! I guess we have to go through the rough days for the good days to seem so good. If not, everyday would be the same.

Hidden Closet :P

Yay! I got a helpful hint on where to find a nice template and I found one! Thank you Kristin. The website she told me to look at was if anyone else is interested. One less blog problem haha. I've explored Blogger more and feel a lot more comfortable with it now :)

So I'm going to be touching on other topics rather than just the wdwcp because there is only so much I can talk about the program! My first topic of interest today is Facebook. Now, I'm sure that a lot of people get tired of Facebook changing it's format as do I, but I usually adjust accordingly. However, there is one feature on Facebook that is quite a bother. Does anyone else find the Friend application annoying or unorganized? I really like how it used to be. I could browse through my friends alphabetically and add them to a list which I really liked to do. How can you look through your friends now? They just give you a random scramble of friends every time you click on the application. And there is no way to look up your recently added friends. I'm sorry to be a complainer, but this has really thrown me off. Does anyone else feel that friends aren't as accessible anymore?

This is astonishing! Do you ever come across something that has been right in front of you for a long time?! I moved into a duplex with two other girls in January. I've been living here almost 3 months now and, just today, I found a closet. This isn't a hidden closet mind you. No, this closet is smack dab in the middle of the hallway! How could I have never noticed a closet? I guess it just blended into the wall apparently! It has the same door as all the others in the hallway. Now granted, I hardly ever go in that hallway because my bedroom is in the basement, but seriously, it's a small house and very hard to miss a closet. It was the discovery of the day I must say lol!

Blogging is confusing. I may be just a newbie and blogging illiterate, but seriously, it's going to take some patience with a few features. How do you easily find or create a new template for Blogger? I know the site itself offers a few to choose from, but I am looking for something more fun. When I search Google, I get stupid sites that don't offer anything worth while. And create your own programs cost money and yada ya. Am I missing something? Can someone tell me how to find nice looking templates or how to create my own for free?

Browsing -- why is it so hard to find other blogs that are on the same topic? This is more just a rant because I realize I can go to, but why can't there be a page where browsing is so much easier? Man, I'm really going to have to get used to the whole blogging thing lol.
