DAY..... 15

Hey guys... so I havent written in 5 days, BUT I've been battling with an outragious cough that I am going to go get checked out today. I think that I have whooping cough, I have all the symptoms and signs, SO I am going to today. All I can think about is Disney. I actually watched the Holiday Wishes Castle Lighting on the wonderful blog, Purple Folder Wait Watchers, and it made me cry. How ridiculous is that? I keep checking my phone every 5 mins since I get email on my blackberry. I have never spent so much time on the computer and checking my phone. BUT somehow I am still getting homework and reading done. Even though I feel like i am doing nothing. This weekend is the Daytona 500 and I am really excited. If I dont get accepted into Disney, I will be going to Belmont Abbey College in North Carolina. My major would be Motor Sport Management, hense why I am excited about the NASCAR race.

Its so hard waiting for Disney.. I am glad that I dont have to go through it alone. My friend, Monica, who has completed the program already, she told me that she waited about 3 weeks, so this week number 2, so I might have another week or so to go. I have receieved 3 thank you emails from Disney, so I wrote an email explaining how I had received the 3 thank yous. The guy wrote back that I shouldn't worry and that it was a glitch in the system and that I would be hearing back from them between 2/22 and 3/9, so that is still 2 weeks away..

saddness... oh well I have to go to class now!!!

Day 10

Dear Everyone,

Today is day 10. I apologize for not blogging for like a week, BUT I've been busy with some random sorority things and homework... SO on Friday some people had received accepted emails already and I was really bummed out that I couldn't share in their excitement... BUT they all interviewed about a week before I did. Also, I noticed that almost everyone was being accepted for Food Services and Merchandise.... The roles I applied for, well, my top 4 were Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique Hostess, Character Attendant, Lifeguard, and Attractions. I also have had sooo much experience in Merchandise that that was my fifth choice. My interviewer asked me if I would be open to that, and OF COURSE I would take Merchandise. I really hope that I get the Hostess, because I have a licensed in cosmetology and I love working with children. I also have a lot of experience in doing little girls hair, make up, and nails. I also have 7 years experience in lifeguarding. I have tons of experience in merchandise, I've worked at Petsmart, Old Navy, Victoria's Secret, Lane Bryant, Torrid, and then back to Lane Bryant.

I am just so nervous about this. I do NOT know why. I was sick during my interview and I wasn't allowed to talk as much as I would have liked to. My interview did last about 20 minutes. I think that is a lot longer than some of the other interviews that I heard about.

Which BY THE WAY!! I AM STILL SICK!!! This sickness WILL NOT go away!!!!!

Dreaming of Purple.....

Day 4!!

Day Number 4 since my interview and I am still sick as ever. It is hard to swallow and breathe.. BUT oh well, thats what I get for living in northern illinois. I cannot wait to hopefully get my purple folder so that I wont get sick anymore from the cold. I didnt go to class today, because it is hard to hear. What is the point of going to class if you cannot hear your professors???? But I went to the doctor and they gave me some medicine for my upper respiratory infection which is always a plus!! Yessssss for medicine!! AND it actually works!! But now I am off to bed to dream in purple!!
