the awk moment when you are disappointed with how your second program feels so far.

i miss my old roommates.

the people I've met at work so far are awesome though. But only one of them is working at my park.

Spring Advantage 2013!

Hey guys! Lauren here!
Sorry I've been MIA for who knows how long, but I just wanted to let you guys know that I've been accepted for the Spring Advantage 2013 College Program!!!!!

I haven't picked my arrival date yet, probably sometime at the end of January because that's when I graduate, but this time I'm going back as a Vacation Planner! I'm super excited!

I'll probably be updating this as much as I can with info before and after. I actually want to try and keep a blog this time!

My ultimate goal is to do this CP, network and get a Professional Internship next Fall in Communications! 

Also, I plan on updating my vlog again! We'll see haha.

Hopefully my potential roommate gets in today, she's a friend from home this time, and I can pay my fees!

I'm sad a lot of my friends from my last program, and my roommates, won't be there. But I'm sure they will come visit!

Thanks guys and have a magical day! :)

Andd cut!

I finally posted kind of an end of program vlog, it isn't much but it sums up how i'm feeling right now.

I've only been home for a day and I want to go back. There are so many things I haven't done, and haven't gotten to experience. I have the feeling of wanting to conquer Disney World... I want to work at new attractions and eat at new restaurants and just... i don't know.

I think that I'm going to go back after I graduate next spring. Or maybe even this summer for a bit. I'm a campus rep, so I'm pretty sure I can still pick up shifts.

I miss the magic.

All subpar things must come to an end.

So, i know i hardly update, but honestly its difficult to here. You get so wrapped up in work and trying to do everything you wanted to do all in one weekend. We have got about three weeks left here, 20 something days, and i have to say i am sad. I will miss my roommates terribly. My job can go fuck itself honestly, and everyone there. I think if i were to do this program again, i would want to make sure i was somewhere i'd enjoy. Maybe merchandise or vacation planner. Attractions isnt all its cracked up to be, thats for sure. Especially the great movie ride. Its not as great as everyone says it is. The people are stuck up, the work is too much to be making minimum wage and the hours are long. If i really enjoyed where i worked, i would have gotten a lot more out of this program. Oh well, too late now.

Again, my roommates kept me sane through this whole thing. If i didnt have them, i would probably have left by now. so thank you Cori Caskey and Katharine Perry. I love you guys. A lot.
Also, the people who i met before going down and kept in touch with. Molly Brennan, Molly F, Kris, Danica, Laura etc. You all are awesome.

I will also miss being in Disney World all the time because it can truly be a magical place. I have had quite a few completely magical days here. Its just amazing. And i look forward to vacationing here from years to come.

I think im ready to finish real life now. Go back to school, finish it, find a real job. Before i left i was so frustrated with new york and everything in it, but now ive learned to appreciate it. The first thing im doing is getting my license. Its something i need to do. Also, its necessary to drive to virginia and baltimore to visit cori and kat!

Will this be my last post here? Prolly not. I might come back to relive memories every once in awhile. Will i do another program? Depends on where my life takes me. For now all i can say is we will see.

Life... here.

Let's be frank here, because I'm willing to be.

This whole experience is... great. But, you have to know it's not going to be exactly how you expect it to be. You may hate your job, the people you work with may suck or not want to bother with you, your roommates may not get along, your hours are long and your pay sucks. It's more a learning experience. It's not fun sometimes, and it's truly exhausting.

Yes, you can go to the parks when you want, and that's all great. But, after you've done it all, it's hard finding new things to do.

I'm not saying that I'm unhappy, because I'm not. I am enjoying myself. But it's not what I expected... actually, it is, but it just turned out differently.

Maybe it's because people here are a lot more judgmental then I thought they'd be. Or that it's really hard getting around without a car.

I can't wait to visit home in two weeks. Then two more months to go.
