I leave SO soon!

I'm leaving in... less then two days! So right now things are kind of insane with doing last-minute everything and I'm really not sure if I'll have a chance to update this blog between now and probably after I'm settled in on Wednesday, so I decided to leave a list of what I'll be doing on each day until I'm finally an official cast member at the Disney World Resort!

-Obsessively go through everything I've packed and everything I've left behind to make sure I'm not leaving anything massively important.
-Run about 432895 errands. And by that, I mean about 3.
-Pack my carry-on, obsess over that as well

-Say goodbye to my sisters :(
-Get into plane
-Crash at hotel because I'm probably emotionally drained due to sadness/overwhelming excitement

- Go to the park with my parents! I'm so excited to spend the day with them :)
- Polynesian for food and fireworks!

-Get freakishly excited for Monday
-Walmart run to get bedding/ other necessities
-Pre-check in dinner!!

-Find out my location!!!
-Register for classes!!
-lots of other stuff involving paperwork and such
-set up my apt :)
-housing meeting?

-housing meeting?
-Spend the day with my parents :)

-Parents leave :(

I'll try to update before Wednesday, but if I can't get to it... all of the above is why!

omg it's August.

Usually when August first comes around I get giddy because it's my birthday month. Today, however, I'm ECSTATIC because it's finally the month that I WILL BE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD!!! I actually kinda forgot about my birthday until I ran up to my twin sister and yelled "It's AUGUST! DO you realize what this means??"

her response: "Yea! We're turning 20?"
...Oh..yea, that too...but more focused on the whole DISNEY FREAKING WORLD thing.

Now that I have only fiiiivvveee glorious days before I fly to Orlando, I actually have gotten some packing done. By some I mean about a suitcase and a half :) One thing to say about packing for a semester: SPACE BAGS! amazing lil things have been quite useful during the process of squeezing my life into suitcases!
The problem I'm having while packing though is trying not to bring all of my clothes. Everyone in my family keeps telling me that I really don't need to bring much since I'm basically going to be living in my costume or Disney look but I can't bear the thought of only having two weeks worth or outfits that I re-wear every time I'm not working. I know, they're all right and four suitcases is super unnecessary, but oh well. I think the limited space is going to eventually force me to weed through my clothes again! Well I'm going back to packing, or trying to avoid it.. but when I have a completed packed list ready I'll post it on here!

quick pic!

My twin sister works at Disneyland (Indiana Jones Ride) and got me these AWESOME luggage tags from the cast store there! I'm still on the search for a glove one so that my backpack can have a tag too, but right now this is enough for all of the suitcases I'll be bringing..that is once I've packed, but I've already addressed that :D


I should pack... eventually..

So I was going to start packing today, really I was.. However, I now am laying in bed with both ears stuffed, unable to breathe because I got the friggin cold. Possibly the world's most pointless and annoying sickness. I have got to use all this down time to finally make a pack/buy list!

To Pack:
• Tshirts
• Tops
• Jeans
• Shorts
• Business Pants
• Business Tops
• Shoes (lots and lots of shoes..)
• Summer dresses
• Formal dress
• Make up
• Nail polish/ nail polish remover
• Hair dryer, straightener, hair products, brush
• Swim suits, towels, sunscreen
• Bathroom towels
• Accessories (jewelry, scarves, etc)
• Bags
• Toiletries
• Ipod
• Camera
• Laptops, Ethernet cords
• Cell phone
• Chargers for everything!
• Prince and Peaco (stuffed animals) :D
• Egg genie, and HOPEFULLY my keurig!
• Alarm clock

To Buy:
• Comforter
• Sheet Set
• Pillows
• Memory foam topper
• Bed risers
• A combination lock
• Laundry detergent
• Random apt necessary items that I can’t think of right now…

I swear I'm missing important items, too. If I missed anything freakishly obvious and something you cleverly thought of let me know! It seems like such a loooong list- I have NO clue how all this nonsense is going to fit into four suitcases, each weighing under 50 pounds! Yikes!

My B :)

Ok soo little update since I last blogged. I moved from Texas to California. I got a summer job. I went on a family cruise. I left that summer job because... I LEAVE FOR FLORIDA IN 11 DAYS!!
I've decided to blame my lack of blogging on me being busy, but now that I'm unemployed and out of school.. I have no excuse so I figured I'd get on here again :)
As far as Disney is concerned, not much has changed in the past month or so besides the shrinkage of my wait time! Well that and the news of (dun dun duuunnn) renter's insurance. (which is pretty much a subject that has been repeatedly talked about and finally resolved over the fbook group lately, so I wont even get into that here!)
But now that I only have two weeks till my check in day it is time for me to start preparing for WDW! I've filled out my on-board paperwork and am starting to figure out what I'm packing and leaving and what I need to get once I get to Disney!
I'll be flying to Florida, which means packing at least six months of life into four suitcases. However, my parents and I are arriving three days early so that I can buy bedding and other essentials in Orlando rather then packing it! So, my packing list is a little different then most peoples in that it's going to mostly consist of clothes and toiletries. But, once I have my whole list ready I'll post it on here. Oh also- I got Disney themed luggage tags for each of the suitcases I'm bringing and they're friggin adorable! A picture of those are to come soon too :)

I have a blog?!?!

Dang it. I can't lie, I totally forgot about my blog, sorry!
It's been super hectic here and really, I have no earth-shatteringly important new Disney info! let's life since I last blogged..

1. Finals are not enjoyable
2. Packing is even less enjoyable
3. I have all my roommates for Disney now! We are getting a three bedroom (6 girls!) in Chatham :)
4. I have requested my location- Gift shop within a hotel with tons of emphasis on my undying love for the Polynesian!
5. I went alum from my sorority and am currently saying bye to my tx friends b/c..
6. I am moving to california in THREE FREAKING DAYS.
- No, I am not doing the CP in Cali, I just decided one cross country move in a summer would be too easy.

(ps Happy Mother's Day to my mommasita!)

Well, I'll post a better blog later or tomorrow! I just wanted to post real quick to let everyone know I' still kickin :P
