Before I knew it…it was graduation time. When I first applied to the Disney College Program I had no idea weather I would receive my acceptance letter or not. Upon receiving my acceptance letter, I was faced with making a decision about weather I wanted to actually try it out or not. Seven months away from the land I knew and jumping into a world I was not familiar with was a big step to take. I decided to immerse myself in the wonderful world of Disney … where adults are allowed to wear crazy outfits without being judged & children become princesses, princes & pirates. Taking this big step in my life was nerve wrecking but nonetheless I took it. Moving to Orlando,FL was scary at first… I was moving alone to a place 1000 miles from home. But now that I’m almost done with my College Program I have to say that no matter all the adversity I faced it is all worth it in the end. I’ve seen myself grown as a person & become more responsible than I already was, I also became more independent. The Walt Disney World Resort has been my home away from home for the past almost 7 months & having amazing roommates to support me through tick & thin was amazing. Having the support of my family & amazing friends was great too, without all this I don’t think I would have lasted long. The program has given me so much but long life lasting friendships with amazing people from around the world..has got to be the cherry on top of this malt. The Disney College Program is not for everyone, you have to learn to be 100% nice even when a guest is being 100%rude to you. Some people don’t make it… thats why graduating from this program is a huge accomplishment. I am proud to say “I DID IT” its been a great journey & after surviving Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe I feel like nothing is impossible & I can accomplish anything!! I will definitely miss this…but I’m ready to sail back into the real world & pick up right were I left off. 16 days & I’m home.
It’s crazy how time flies… In about 23 days ill be graduating from the Disney College Program :o
On October 21, 2012 i will be celebrating my fivemonthniversary by buying my plane ticket back home. On that day Orlando Florida would have been my home for five months. Crazy how time flies and you don’t even feel it, i know that counting down doesn’t exactly make time go faster or make time go slower. I don’t really know which option i would prefer, if time goes faster i am closer to home but my days are counted in Orlando. If time goes slower i can enjoy my days here in Orlando but it makes home seem so far. The day i set a foot in the MCO airport, that is when the bittersweet moment will finally settle. The fact is that in the last few months i have changed as an individual, i have experience growth within myself. I am no longer the naive scared girl that i was when i arrived at the airport on May 20th, i have learned that when family isn’t around to support you it is up to you to support yourself and to try to make the place your living at your home. I got to admit that i got lucky, i have the best roommates ever that no matter what are always there to support me we made our own little ohana in apartment 16204 :) I am almost at the finish line i just have to find motivation to keep going, my recruiter once told me “sometimes your going to cry and want to go home or you are just going to feel like its not worth it anymore…but never forget the reason why your there in the first place and the magic will come alive again” i guess this is something i should consider. The hardest part about all of this is that the holidays are around the corner and its going to be though to not spend it with my family but i have to be strong and know that in a few weeks ill be with them for a while. I WILL BE STRONG.
Because i have the best boss in the world <3 He’s the BIG CHEESE! ;)
Today while at work i saved a baby’s life!!! I was greeting between the Bay 2 & Bay 3 at the Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe and a lady approached me to ask about the restroom as i gave her instructions on how to get there i looked down at her baby and realized the poor thing was choking on his own vomit! :( so i told the mom and she freaked out but the baby threw it all out and coughed as if to grasp some air.. i am glad i looked down and said something or a tragedy would have happened.

Best Birthday EVER <3
I was silly to even think that long distance relationships worked… i didn’t think of trying it but the hope of knowing that maybe sometime could happen made my days go by faster. Now as i stand here alone in my room i realized i was so silly, to share my feelings and get an unwanted response. Well i hope that one day we meet again and although i am heartbroken i live in the most magical place in the world, so i won’t let my feelings show on stage. I am going to be happy for myself and try to enjoy myself the most i can after all you only live once and i need to cherish my time here. Goodnight World <3
A few months ago stepping out of the valley was the most scary thing ever! & venturing the world seemed impossible. As I sit here typing this I realize that nothing is impossible anymore…I’ve been living on OWN in Orlando,FL for almost two months now & I work for myself..go grocery shopping , cook, wash dishes, do laundry, go out, pay my bills …all on my own in a whole new city. Its as if one day I’m a child and the next I was forced to grow up & depend on my own. I can finally say I’m independent & I’m not scared to venture on my own now…because I know that the world is full of possibilities & amazing opportunities that are waiting for me. “Dreams can become reality when we have the courage to pursue them” [Walt Disney]. I am ready to live life <3
