37 Days!

I will be back in Florida in 37 days!

My past few weeks have been filled with cleaning my room & going through just about everything I own. Since April, I have taken probably 10 garbage bags & boxes of stuff to Goodwill, most of it being clothes that I hardly ever wear. I still have one bin of clothes that I can't get rid of, even though I barely wear them. It's all my clothes for camp, so mostly tshirts I got for free from school & don't care if they get ruined.

I have also started packing some stuff. I have 2 boxes & a duffel already packed. I have a pile of other things that I need to pack, but I don't know if it's gonna be packed in a box or if I'll have room in one of my suitcases. I have a list of things that are gonna be packed, but I'm most likely going to use/need in the next 5 weeks.

I had been taking 2 summer classes: nutrtion & goverment. I decided to drop the nutrition class the other day. The teacher required us to use a different browser to take the tests & quizzes in. Everytime I opened the other browser, my computer would freeze & stop responding. I ended up getting zeros on a quiz and one of the tests because of it. I figured even if I got 100% on everything else for the rest of the semester, I would still only end up with a 71% in the class. Since I changed my major, I can take the 100 level nutrition class, which has a different teacher than the 200 level class.

I've been doing some sewing projects for vaious family members. I have to shorten 3 pairs of pants for my aunt and I have to fix 2 skirts for my grandma. It's not that hard to do either, I just have no ambition to.

Summer, Packing, & Halloween

I'm taking two summer classes & they started this week. So far, neither one of them seem too bad, they're both online classes. The professor for my nutrition class has everything available online already, so I can work at my own pace, I just have to have stuff done by the due dates. I took my first government quiz yesterday & got a 90% on it! The majority of my summer is going to involve those classes.

I emailed the recruiter I talked to last month about switching roles because I still hadn't gotten a letter for costuming. She said if I didn't get it by the beginning of this week, to let her know & they can send another one. Since it was Flag Day yesterday & we didn't get mail, I'm gonna wait till tomorrow before I email her to let her know I still haven't gotten it.

My mom brought home two big boxes from her work for me to use to pack. I packed one of them last night with stuff that I've boughten for the program or already had, but won't be using between now & August. I keep looking at the pile of stuff in the corner of my room & thinking that it seems like a lot of stuff to be taking. I then realize that a lot of it is stuff that I bought after I got there for my last program, so it's not really a lot of extra stuff cuz I would end up with that much stuff after I get there.

One of my friends said something on Facebook about how they wanted to sign up to work the Halloween Parties since the sign up sheets were on the Hub. I submitted my interest sheet on Sunday to work the Halloween Parties. It doesn't gaurantee that I'll be working them, it just lets them know that I'm interested in working them. Speaking of Halloween, I know I want to go to the Halloween party at least once. I'm not sure who I'll be going with yet, but if the people I go with decide to dress up, I've already got my costume figured out. I'm gonna go as Russell from Up. I have brown shorts & a yellow tshirt. I have to make a brown sash with patches on it, I found my Brownie sash from Girl Scouts, but it's too small.

2 Months!

Exactly 2 months from now, I will be done checking in & will either be unpacking or grocery shopping & getting other stuff I need for the apartment.

A few days ago, I decided that I didn't really want to work the day before I checked in. I had only requested to work that day so I would have longer to have to work again to keep my seasonal status active. Since I'm gonna be working in costuming, I don't have to worry about keeping my seasonal status for now. I started to look for a breakfast reservation for my parents & I that day that I could use my 50% discount from Christmas on. I was able to get reservations for breakfast in the castle for he day before I check in & I can use the discount. Breakfast for the 3 us is only gonna cost $100.

I was one of the people who got the email yesterday about changing my arrival date to Sept. 6th. From what I could tell from Facebook, people from pretty much all the arrival dates got the email. I already have a roommate for Aug. 9th, the hotel is paid for already, & I have reservations for the castle for Aug. 8th, there was no way I was going to voluntarily change my arrival date. In case you were one of the lucky ones who didn't get the email, it's posted at the bottom of this post. I blacked out my applicant number on it.

That's pretty much it for now. I realized that I've posted 3 times in the past week. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep posting this much all summer, or if it's just cuz I don't have classes or anything right now. My formspring is over there, so ask me stuff & I'll answer it. <-<-<-<-<-<-<-

Quick Update

I'm back from camp in case you were wondering. I had fun, but I'm exhausted. They don't joke about it being work week. You work hard. (It was my 3rd year helping, so I knew it would be a lot of work.) I spent 12 hours yesterday sewing bug nets & then putting them up over the beds in the units. Before I left this afternoon, I reminded them that I'm available to help over the summer if they need it.

I got an email this morning from my nutrititon professor saying that the Blackboard site was open & we could start working on everything right away, even though the class doesn't actually start for another week.

Now that I'm done with my random updates, what's new on the Disney front? My roommate Dana & I did the roommate matching thing, so we are officially roommates. She posted her packing list on her blog, so we were talking earlier about who's bringing what & what kind of shower curtain we want & all that fun stuff. I was also giving her some advice about some of the things that were on her list that she doesn't really need or stuff she didn't have & probably would need/want. I hope she doesn't think I'm being bossy or anything like that when I'm telling her that stuff. I just didn't talk to anyone who had done the program before my first program, so I brought stuff I didn't end up using & didn't bring stuff I ended up buying or having my parents ship down.

That's pretty much all for now. I havent had any good formspring questions in awhile, so ask me stuff. It's right there. <-<-<-<-<-<-<-<-
