Guys, we are behind. Like, over 10 movies behind. We didn’t get through a ton this past week because I was sick so I was usually asleep by the time Rob got home, plus we had a busy weekend where we drove up to New York to grab some more of my stuff (like my desk and desktop which I’m finally using again). I’m exhausted but less sick this week, so hopefully we can end (mildly) strong, and get closer to the goal.
Fangirls, I miss EPCoT. I miss Walt Disney World, I miss my friends, I miss being elsewhere. Sadly, I don’t know when I’m going to see my home park again, or my Ohana. I have plans for moving out, but who knows. The one thing I am definitely sure of is my love for EPCoT. One of the things I finally got to experience while I was in EPCoT last was drinks around the world. Sadly, I can’t remember them all, but one that I loved above (almost) all others, was the lemonade at the American Pavilion.
Fangirls, this entire summer I’ve been all over the place; Florida, California, Maryland, Vermont, and Connecticut have been a lot to handle. It’s definitely been fun, but all of the travel has put some strain on my home life, and a lot of strain on my diet.
Fangirls, this weekend I’m embarking on a trip down to Florida to meet up with my Ohana and do Disney together for the first time in 3 years. I’ve missed them all so much, and feel like there is so much to catch up on. People have gotten married, others engaged, more tattoos, lives have just changed. One thing that has (obviously) changed, is our age. All of us are now legal drinking age. In Walt Disney World, that gives us a couple new options; drinking at Gaston’s Tavern in the Magic Kingdom, and drinking around the world in EPCoT.
Fangirls, I’ve been thinking a lot about my time in the Disney College Program recently. I’ve been thinking about both times, and the different experiences I had at both. Part of the reason I’ve been thinking about Disney so much is my Ohana is planning a reunion trip down to Florida to Walt Disney World because it’s been about 2 years since we’ve been together as a group. Thinking about Disney usually makes me pretty sad, but recently I realized that I’m so grateful that things didn’t go as planned on my second program.
So today is my first day I travel on my way to Florida! It’s been a long day, and it’s only 3 pm. But it’s awesome to know that by this time tomorrow I’ll be checking into my hotel in Florida, and hopefully getting some wifi!
Today has been crazy. I found that with baggage, it’s cheaper to take a train than a plane, so I’m sitting in a pretty comfy seat, waiting to head out.
This morning I woke up at 5 to shower and make sure I was ready to go. We (my mum, step dad, and NatalieCaileen) were out of the house by 7:15, and on our way to the first train station. It’s about a 2.5 hour drive from where I live.
Something I didn’t deal with on my other program was homesickness. My town is so closed in, and living at home was so frustrating, that getting out was freeing. I was ready to go.
