It's been three weeks since I left Disney World and the magical, totally immersible, fantastically overwhelming whir of what we alumni like to call "The Disney Bubble". Life back home is nice, but I find myself in near constant boredom. Even if I'm constantly keeping busy, I still feel underwhelmed with my surroundings here. I think I got so used to being oversensitive to everything around me to soak it all in and now I don't know how to turn it off without this feeling of slowing down more and more with every second that I'm home. And again, being home is nice, but even that short amount of time in Florida made me feel like Disney is my home, almost as much as my real home. I made friends, who became family, who will continue to be some of the most important people in my life. My time there changed my life and my being in such a substantial way that five months felt like five years. And its incredibly difficult to let go of.
The count of people reapplying for Fall Advantage 2011 is climbing. Hopefully we'll have a nice little Spring 2010 reunion next year! I was going to end this blog when I got home but since I'm going for a second program in less than a year, I think I'll keep it and just have a little Disney hiatus while I write about Texas life until I make it back to the sunshine state. During this time, I'm going to try to update as much as possible. I don't write enough, and I'm an effing writer for goodness sake. haha. I thought, a time or two, about xeroxing my real life bounded book journal and uploading it here but I think I'll just stick with my new moving forward life slogan and try my best to put everything up here as well. Hakuna Matata.
So, Texas life in a nutshell: I'm looking for a job and its proving difficult. There are plenty of opportunities out there but they all fall flat to Disney. Of course nothing is going to come close to touching it, so I think I'll go the materialistic route and look for a job that can be fun and where I can make bank, mainly to save up for next year in Disney, but I also really want to visit some friends from my CP and see the country a little bit. Thats of course on top of going to school and having to pay for it myself this time since I dropped below my financial aid's regulation of taking two classes last semester. I'm still kicking myself in the ass for that one but whats done is done and I just have to make the best of it. Story of my life lately but that's alright.
I've also been going out and seeing friends that I unfortunately neglected in the last few years like the jerk I had accidentally turned in to. It wasn't anything personal, ever, but I just stopped going out and found my nice little niche of people and places and stuck to it. Now I know better and I'm trying to make up for lost times. Its so strange to me that even after a year or two, some people, while their lives are different, they're still the same silly amazing people. I love it and I'm glad we can find the time to hang out now. Special shout out to Lillie who helps me get my Disney fix every weekend when we watch Disney movies (and their sequels) on her big screen TV. haha. I'm actually heading over there shortly so I'll end this update here. I hope all of you are doing wonderfully and good luck to those heading to Disney in the next (or last) few weeks! You'll love it and please keep the world updated better than I did. haha. I'm looking forward to keeping up with yall!
