Disney College Program Rewind

Disney College Program Rewind

I can’t believe it has almost been a year since I checked into Vista Way for the first time.

It has been a whirlwind year but I would not change a single thing. I can say when I drove onto Disney property for the first time I was so nervous, I was about to meet the girls who I would live with for the next 5 months for the first time. I was 12 hours away from home, I was essentially alone minus all of the other DCPers who were doing this for the first time as well.

I met Kelsey and Savannah while we were in line to check in, and I didn’t know it at the time but these two girls along with Carolyn would make my College Program as memorable as it was. From late night talks about life, to Celebrating Roommate Day in a rainy Magic Kingdom, to waking up at God Awful o’clock just to go stand in the hot Florida sun to be a part of the Christmas Parade filming, ¬†even the small arguments would have but then later get over. I would never change a single thing about the 5 months I spent with you three in Vista 2310.

Let’s talk about work. The College Program isn’t always about going to the parks 24/7. Yes, I did go to one of the four parks at least once a week, if not more just to play and have fun. Yes, a majority of the paycheck I received from Disney did go back to Walt Disney World in one way or another.

I was lucky enough to be placed in a role at Disney that I fell in love with. I spent my days in the Wild West in Frontierland (FUNtierland as the locals call it) as a Merchandise Cast Member in THE Magic Kingdom. I have been told that the people you work with at Disney will either make or break your program for you, for me it made it 200x’s better than I ever dreamed it would be, even those 14 hour shifts during the holiday’s when all I wanted was to be at home with my family. The other cast member’s I worked with were my family while I was there and to this day I still continue to feel as if those people are my family who I miss every single day. You know who you are, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this program amazing.

Would I recommend the Disney College Program to someone else? 100% yes. Is the Disney College Program for everyone? I honestly don’t know. Would I do it all over again? There isn’t a doubt in my mind. If I could drop everything right now, I would leave for Orlando and never look back. I definitely plan on doing another College Program in Spring of 2018 after I graduate from school.

I cannot wait until I have the chance to walk down Main Street U.S.A. again. Mickey I’ll see you soon, that is a promise.

ZzzQuil Product Review

ZzzQuil Product Review

Some nights I have more trouble sleeping than others. If I have a more stressful day than normal or caffeine later in the day, I tend to have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. I wanted to try ZzzQuil for awhile now but was kind of weary about it, just for the fact that sleep aids scare me a bit.

I was sent a free sample of ZzzQuil last week to try for testing purposes so I figured why not give it a shot? Well let me just say, this product is amazing, I had had a pretty stressful day at work, so I knew it would be a long night, or so I thought.

After taking the sample of ZzzQuil, I was asleep withing 30 minutes. I was able to sleep the entire night without waking up once. The next morning I woke up feeling refreshed and feeling like I was ready to take on the day. I will definitely buy this product the next time I go to the store!

If you have trouble sleeping, like I do, I would definitely recommend this product for you.

Have a great week!!

 

**This product was sent to me free of charge for testing purposes only. Not paid**

 

Catch Up Post

Catch Up Post

hey ya’ll, how are ya doing?

I know it’s been awhile since my last post but life has been a bit crazy and this is actually the first time I have even been on my computer in a solid 2 months! Crazy I know, but I have missed writing random things down so much! So I figured I would do a little catch up on my life post! Hope you enjoy!

Let’s start with school. I can finally say I am officially a Senior in college at Mississippi State University. I passed all of my finals and even ended up with a C in Spanish 3, not really sure how that happened but hey, I’ll take it! No complaints from me on that one considering I was failing the class when I went to take the final. I guess pulling all nighters to study really do help, so there ya go kids, take that however you would like. Starting in August I will be taking 3 face-to-face classes and 2 online classes, so I can continue to work at The Biscuit Shop here in Starkville!

So far this Summer has been pretty eventful. My mom and I went on a vacation together for the first time since I was 8, so that was a lot of fun. We went on a Carnival Cruise to Cozumel and Progresso. A lot of things happened on that Cruise, if you would like a separate post on that let me know! I have tons of pictures that I would love to share with you! I can tell you one thing, it was AMAZING.

I made a kinda big “adult” decision this past week, I adopted a kitten from the local animal shelter. I named him Ash and he is the cutest kitty in the world. I love him more than anything. He loves to play with other animals and loves to cuddle. He gets Hangry too, so I guess that just means he was meant to come home with me because we are able to relate about that A LOT. lol

In just 3 days my best friend who I met while doing the Disney College Program is flying to Mississippi to stay with me for 5 days! We are going to Memphis for the weekend and I cannot wait! I’ll be posting A LOT on Snapchat so if you do not already follow me, I will leave all social media accounts at the bottom of this post!

I hope every single one of you are having a great summer! Let me know what you are doing for fun!
