I recently turned 25 and that means that for 10 years I have been driving, paying for my own gas, and working. I've paid for my own food for 7 years I added paying for my own groceries, fun, and luxuries (if I wanted an expensive item I had to save up for it such… Continue reading Is this Adulting?
Last week, I went on vacation! It was an amazing 9 day trip back home with my family that allowed me to come back home well rested, with a lovely tan, and ready to make magic again. I also was gifted with a paycheck with a big fat ZERO on it from not working at… Continue reading Budgets After Vacation
*EDIT* Aug 1, 2019. Hey y'all, I wrote this packing list a couple months into my program in Aug of 2017. And since it is still my most read post, I decided to take a look and see if I would change anything with it. And honestly, I wouldn't. I have had people tell me… Continue reading The Ultimate DCP Packing List
I'm sure you've heard the statement, "if you love your job you'll never work a day in your life!" What if I told you that isn't true? Now don't get me wrong, if you love your job you will enjoy the work, but it is still work. I am coming up on my 3rd anniversary… Continue reading Never Work a Day in Your Life
Mid March 2020 If you care about Disney at all, you've definitely heard about the park (and resort) closures. You may have heard that, unfortunately, Disney made the hard decision to send the College Program participants home early. These hardworking heart and soul of the Walt Disney Company were devastated by the news and they… Continue reading Truly, Something Magical
I woke up to a Cast Member's worst nightmare the other day. The dreaded Facebook Message from a friend of a friend "hey, I heard you work for Disney". I prepped myself as I read the preview and opened the message ready to say "so sorry I have no tickets to give". And to my… Continue reading “Hey! I heard you work for Disney”
I have been annoying my family and friends with my drama about a guy that I had once liked and now wanted to be a friend. I am no longer upset, but it isn't yet talked out of my system so buckle up. He was a crush that I found to be a sweet friend.… Continue reading Mixed Signals
You've probably heard this piece of advice (or command) a lot in your life. I have definitely heard many Youtubers suggest it, articles stating it, blogs just like this one, and maybe even seen the video of the Navy Seal Admiral. I really don't have MORE to add to what has been said about it… Continue reading Make Your Bed
When you work in hospitality, you get a lot of "good" guest stories. You know, like the guest who is determined to order a "Bacon Cheese Burger, without the bacon and cheese" *rings up hamburger* "NO I ORDERED A BACON CHEESE BURGER NO BACON OR CHEESE". The person who demands something special for a birthday… Continue reading Focus on the Positive

It seems almost weekly I am scrolling through Facebook or Instagram and see something about how traveling makes us happier or more fulfilled. There's usually a really tan girl excitedly showing off her bikini or her floppy hat. They often have some math on the clickbait that makes you feel guilty for buying your Starbucks… Continue reading Buy the Daggum $9 Coffee
What is it with former significant others timing? They leave your life, wait for you to get settled in your life without them again and then, and only then, they contact you. Think about it, if that text came in 2 days after the break-up you may have gotten back together. I mean, there is… Continue reading Shhhhh, I’m Trying to Forget You.
The other day I met some guests who were visiting Disney World for the first time! Yay! Ok ok, that happens every single day... but what doesn't happen every day is someone who hasn't planned anything and wants to do everything! These ladies had 2 days in Disney World (1 in between at Universal). Money… Continue reading A First Visit on a Time Crunch
If you know any Walt Disney World Cast Members scrolling through facebook and instagram looks something like this: And no, we are NOT sorry about it. The experience was one I will never forget! I loved the interactions with the cast members, the land itself was impressive, and the food was great. All the cast… Continue reading In a Galaxy Far Far Away…
No one is big enough to be sponsored here so this is a 100% honest review. I purchased this case about a month ago because I thought it would be good to take on vacation and this is a month using Loopy. When Loopy warns they ship fast, BOY do they. I ordered my case… Continue reading Loopy: An Honest Review
