Disneyland Adventures


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 ;)

I love to sing


I really do.
Of course that's not me but you get the picture.
(get it? There's a picture! Hahaha...ha....ha...ok)

Today is one of my days off this week
and I was able to be alone in the apartment
so I was singing and dancing around by myself and it was awesome!
I haven't sang in like forever!
Felt so good to stretch out my vocal chords again ;)

I miss singing in a choir
and just singing in general.
I'm not much of a soloist singer but I love to sing on my own.
I know that didn't make sense.
Let me explain:
I love singing by myself when no one can hear me ;)
I only perform with a group or in my room with the door closed
hahahahahaha.

When I sing, the world goes away
and helps me deal with things.
Especially when I sing a song that means a lot to me.
I feel like me ;)
Yeah weird but true.
Maybe I'll take up a singing class or something when I get home?
I'd love to sing on Broadway
but then I'd have to see all the people....
that wouldn't end well hahahahaha

Anyways!
I know it was a random post but it was on my mind
so therefore it's here now ;)

What helps you get through stuff? For me it's singing.
You??

Valentine's Day/Thoughts


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. ;) ;)

100th post!

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 ;)
