Hello All…
I’ve been super busy lately. The busy season has started at both jobs. Our first camp of the season is a special needs camp. It’s called Special Touch Getaway, it is handicapped citizens and many times, this is the only time they get out of their home. Many live in group homes. There are people who need very little help to others who are fully dependent on others. They are awesome people, and they are so happy to be here. They are thankful for everything!

We’re having a yard sale tomorrow. This will be my first one ever. I hope to bring the money I make to Disney with me. Let’s pray it does not rain! It has been raining here a lot. But it’s not storms that come from somewhere, its storms that just appear. The storms are here long enough to flood the streets and then leave.

To graduate I need 9 credits on internship. I want to do one of these while working at my current job. I went to register for the “class” that is needed for the internship and the computer would not let me register because I did not have 110. I freaked out a little…ok a lot!! I am ok not getting credit for Disney College Program, but it would be really nice. I emailed the guy that is head of the program and he told me to “chill” he can override it in the system. YAY! I am going to call him on my lunch break today to get everything fixed.

Last Friday I woke up at 3:30 am to head to Kansas City to pick up my brother from school. About the time I was out of St Louis, a cop was directing everyone off the interstate; there was an accident. I am horrible with directions and was completely lost in St Louis. I drove around for awhile and then pulled out my iPhone and found a detour, got gas and continued on my way. I heard on the radio that both sides of the interstate were closed about an hr later. It was about 4:30-5 am, everyone was heading to work. But I made it to KC in plenty of time to get my brother his clothing and attend graduation. We ate with his group and left to go home. It was a long day but fun.

I found out my jeep will only cost $300 to fix. :-D yay!! That is the only thing that is vital to be fixed. It’s the front ball barring. There still won’t be a radio or AC. The mechanic said it will get me there and back. He also said my tires will be alright.

The night before check-in my roomie Mandie and I are going to stay in Pop Century resort. Our other roomie is staying there with her mom. We’re probably going to caravan over to check-in together. I'm super excited!!

Ive been seeing updates on the FB page from people who have already started their program. I am super envious of you guys right now! Keep us posted how everything goes

Till next time...

Life is CRAZY!!

Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans. ~~John Lennon

This statement fits so well into my life right now. I can’t believe its less than 3 months till Disney. I remember like yesterday the day I applied. And the day I got accepted. Actually my boyfriend and I were talking about it the other day. That is the only time my boss of 4 years has seen me that emotional, when I got the acceptance email. I was happy she was there to share the good news with me. She kept saying I’d get in and to quit worrying. And alas…I got in. She has listened to me talk about the College Program from the day I got the pamphlet to now. And I still talk about it ALL the time and she puts up with it. :-)

Finals are over. So is school!! I am checking the website constantly for grades. Now its time to concentrate on the summer events and then Disney time! I'm starting to get nervous. I wish I could just pack up and go tomorrow. I don’t like waiting.
My schedule is CRAZY!!! It seems that I don't have time to just sit and relax. Our busy season at both jobs are starting very soon! This means crazy hours for me. hopefully the time will fly and before I know it, I'll be on the road to meet my roommates at Disney!

My brother is back in the states from being in Haiti for months. He will be back in Kansas City, where he goes to school, next Thursday. Friday the 21st, he does his graduation ceremony. I can’t get off work Thursday, so I’ll miss him flying in, but I will make it to his graduation. I’ll leave my house when my boyfriend goes to work at 4am. And make it to Kansas City by 930-ish. Then come home the same day because I have to work Saturday morning. It’s going to be a long day Friday.
The 21st is also Shrek 3 release. At the theater I work at, we are doing green popcorn, green soda, and green clothing. I'm sad I’m going to miss it. It sounds like a hoot. "Its good to be Green"
We had an Iron Man 2 midnight release. It didn’t go so hot. We had 41 people. It was much busier on the weekend. I love working midnight releases. All the ‘crazies’ come out to see the movies. The energy in the theater is awesome!

I put my car in the shop today to get an estimate how much it is going to cost to fix. I know it will be no less that 1500. Now I have to figure out if I should get the Jeep fixed. Pros of Jeep: It’s big, Lots of room for packing and people, It’s paid off, 4- wheel drive. Cons of Jeep: It’s big: Gas hog, Cost of maintenance expensive. So now I argue with myself, do I get a new car or get the Jeep fixed?

Tonight some of my friends from out of town are coming and we’re going to have an “end of school bash.” It will be great to see my friends whom I haven’t seen in a long time. And I don’t have to get up for Saturday class. This makes me very happy!!

I'm having a yard sale. I’ve never had one, so my friend is going to help me. She’s more experienced than I am. The 28-29th is when I'm going to have it. I'm hoping as I am going through boxes, I can start packing for Disney and as I sell stuff, that money will be going with me to Disney also.

June 12 is Relay for Life. This will be my third year doing this. I do it in memory of my mom. June 20th is father’s day and I plan on going with a guy I work with to volunteer. He works with a group of people and they feed homeless out of a bus. They also give out things like socks and clothing. Toys for the kids that are living on the street are a big hit. Ive been touched from hearing his stories and I would like to help.

If anyone has any advice what to do with my Jeep or advice with the yard sale. Let me know!!
