So I've been here for 2 months and I can't believe it's been that long! Holy dang.....wow. So here's a little sampling of what's happened over the last 2 months:
-My roomies and I hosted a Nacho Libre nacho night
which was a huge success!
-We took over 500 PhotoPass pictures and bought a CD with our 50% off
before it expired ;)
-got to see a couple friends that came to the park
-got to meet Nicholas Cage and he told me to have a good day ;)
(called me by name too!)
-saw Kevin Jonas and his wife in Downtown Disney and waved
-trying to get over a cold
-trying to stay dry in this ever changing weather of rain in CA.
-got a letter from Andrew mailed to my actual address ;)
-got a package from my family ;)
-attended free pancake night at IHOP with friends.
-rode Space Mountain with the lights on!
-had a cast exclusive interview with Mickey at his house
-sucked at grocery bingo
-celebrated the Chinese New Year with homemade Chinese food
made by our CP Chinese friends ;)
-listened to Carson Jr High sing at Carnation Plaza
-started a "quotes poster" for the silly things we say while we're here
(example: "Stop stroking it Sam it's a PLATE!"- me)
Those are just a few of the things we've done ;) We go to Disneyland all the time for free! That pretty much trumps everything not gonna lie ;)
So today is the dreaded "Single Awareness Day" and, while I have my missionary, I am single for the moment. BUT I don't feel sorry for myself at all ;)
I'm living my dream of working at Disneyland. I make magical memories for kids everyday when I go to work. I am part of a team that brings people together to celebrate something important in their lives and get to help make it the best day ever. While I'm not wild about my location, I still love what I do. How may people do you know that love going to work everyday? Or that get to help people create memories that last forever? I know I don't know many except for the people that work for Mickey Mouse ;)
I have a super awesome family that supports me all the time and always helps in a tight spot. I got a totally cool Valentine's Day package from them with CDs and homemade cookies and necessary hot chocolate replenishment ;) I couldn't have asked for a better family ;)
I have the most amazing guy writing to me on his mission. He's my best friend and I know he's always gonna be there for me. He gives the greatest advice even when I don't ask for it. He just knows. (Probably partly having to do with the fact that he's a missionary) I love the fact that he knows me and what I need even if I haven't told him the problem yet.
My life is truly blessed. ;) ;)
Wow.....100 posts! That's huge. And an awful lot of talking from my end ;)
So on this 100th post I decided to just write what's on my mind. Normally people have "themes" for their 100th post, well I couldn't really think of one so I'll just write about a lot of them.
To start with: Working at The Happiest Place on Earth. It is awesome! Watching kids' faces light up when I mention something magical about the park. (Examples: Jedi Training Academy or Princess Fantasy Faire or Pixie Hollow) In the Star Trader we have the Build-Your-Own-Lightsaber station which is like the coolest thing ever. And when they finish we call them Jedi and everything. It's quite exciting let me tell you ;) And watching the Jedi Training Academy is very very entertaining definitely watch it if you come and have fun with it.
Second: life on my own. It's very exhilarating to be on my own. Although I definitely miss being home and being just down the hall from my parents and my kitties. I miss my kitties a lot. BUT it's amazing to be living in my own apartment. And my roomies are hilarious and we have a good time together ;) (It helps that there's only 3 of us)
Third: My missionary. I finally got a letter from Andrew the other day and he's doing great. I couldn't be more proud of him and the great things he helping with in Argentina. He's an amazing guy and I'm so glad that I get his letters and that he confides in me. ;)
I know this isn't the most exciting 100th post but that's what's been on my mind ;) And here are some pictures from the last weeks of Disneyland fun ;)
Here you will find love, magic, bookworm favorites, Disney tips, and a family on their journey to Happy Ever After!
