The Kitchen Sink.

Jessica and I @ graduation.
I had my Disney College Program graduation on December 13th. You get your graduation Mickey ears, you eat, take pictures. It sucks because it's like an ending to your program, but you still have to work for three more weeks. 

Now about Christmas. It was the best Christmas I have ever had. Yes, Maggie came to visit. But that's not all. Maggie and I went up to our hotel room when she got here and we were putting our stuff down and she said, "What's this?" She was pointing to the adjoining door to our room. She was like, "It's open!" and starting poking at it and opening it. I was like, "OH MY GOD Maggie don't open that! Another family is in there!" And then I saw it. Someone in the room standing there. And I thought to myself, oh my god. There is someone else in there and Maggie is so stupid for opening it. Well, then I noticed the person standing in the other room was my mom. And then my whole family popped out. I was so happy and so excited that I burst into tears. I had absolutely NO idea that my whole family was coming. It was the biggest and best surprise I have ever had in my life. It's going to take a whole lot to top that one. They are some good liars. Now I'm not going to believe anything they say for as long as I live!

Caroline, Maggie, me, and Sloane.

Mickey Christmas tree!

I did get an iphone for Christmas. Thank Jesus. When I will switch over to my iphone though, is anyones guess.

Christie, Lela, Benji, me, and Lashon.
A couple of us from Port Orleans went to Beaches and Cream and ate the Kitchen Sink today. It was me, Lashon, Benji, Christie, and Lela. It is 8 scoops of ice cream, a whole can of whipped cream, and every topping they have. Brownies, nuts, caramel, chocolate syrup, sprinkles, candy, cherries, peanut butter, angel food cake, bananas, pineapple, strawberries, etc. We all agreed it would have been better without the candy pieces (it was like gummy orange slices) and the cherries (because there were no joke about 50). And I think it would have been better without the peanut butter. It was like a peanut butter sauce, and once the ice cream started melting, everything tasted like peanut butter. Ew. We finished the whole thing, and I hate to admit that I was still hungry afterwards!

The kitchen sink. Conquered!

I have four more days of work left and five more days at Disney. I'm starting to get sad. I don't want to leave the most magical place on earth :(

What? It's Christmas time? When did that happen?

I've been seeing Christmas stuff in Disney since October, so seeing Christmas stockings and T-shirts and ornaments is nothing new. But it's actually December? And the next holiday is Christmas? WHATTTTT?????!!!!

I'm kidding. Kind of. Does it make since when I say that time goes by so slow and so fast- at the same time? I guess I will try to explain. When I work six days in a row, time doesn't move. But then I will look at the date after that week and be like goodness, it's already December 9th?! Maybe the minutes and hours go by slow and the days go by fast. I don't think I'm making any sense.

Maggie called me a couple days ago and informed me that she is coming to Orlando to come spend Christmas with me. I can't tell you how excited I am. I don't know if I could do another holiday without my amazing family. I knew when I signed up for this program that I would be missing out on Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I thought I was a badass and could handle it. WRONG. I freaking miss my family and Thanksgiving sucked without them. So Maggie is my hero and coming to keep me company on Christmas. The only thing that sucks though is that my main entrance pass is blocked-out for Epcot and Magic Kingdom on the days she is coming. I really wanted to eat in Japan :( Stupid block-out dates.

I had off work the past two days so I did some hardcore Disney Christmas shopping. I don't know if it's just hard to buy for my family or if it is just hard to buy for them when I'm alone. Because I am having some serious complications. Phone calls and pix texts don't do any justice when you're trying to explain to someone what you are looking at. Just doesn't work.

I have a little over three weeks until I leave. Can you believe it? Seven months I've been here. My disney graduation is next week. Thats when I get my Mickey graduation ears!!!! That is really all I'm looking forward to. Graduation, Christmas with Mags, home.

Here are some pictures from when Kitzya and I had a couple of days off. We went to Ohana at the Polynesian Resort for breakfast and then went to Universal. The next day we went to Cocoa Beach.

Breakfast at Ohana at the Polynesian Resort.. mmmm

The reason I want to stay here forever.
