Getting Accepted:

So I applied for the Disney College Program as soon as I could in February. Let me explain my obsession with Disney. The first time I ever went there was when I was 2 years old, I remember my parents sitting me down and telling me that we were going and I wanted to see Piglet. I have gone several times since then, but one of my favorite times that I went was when I was 10 and went on the Disney cruise, we got to spend an entire week in the parks, while in the parks I got the chance to "drive" the Jungle Cruise boat. For a 10 year old that was huge, one of my favorite memories there! Another favorite memory of mine is when I went to Disneyland for the first time with my boyfriend, it was a great experience, just the two of us enjoying Disney. Now Brent (my bf) does not quite get my Disney obsession, but he goes with it.
Anyways, back to applying, I have known that I wanted to work with Disney most of my life and now that I am getting ready to graduate fro Purdue University, this was when I needed to make my big decision. So, I applied and watched the E-presentation, maybe I'm a nerd, but I actually liked watching the videos! After I applied I was given a phone number to call and set up my interview. I was really excited for my interview, and after going through that I had to wait 3-4 weeks to find out if I got in or not!
Well, it just so happens this Tuesday, after a horrible day in my food lab, I recieved notifictaion that I was accepted into the Disney College Program! I was so excited, I had no idea what to do. I was pacing back and forth throughout my apartment trying to call my mom and tell her the good news! It was so great talking to her, because she understands my passion!
Over the next couple days I found out more about the program, and accepted it today actually! I'm super excited to start my new life! I wish I could start sooner than August, but I have 3 really good friends getting married and I wouldn't miss either of their weddings for for the world! This will also give me chance to basically say my goodbyes to most of my family. I'm soexcited I want it to be here already, ahhhhhh DISNEY!!!!!! Love it! I will update this every once and a while on my happening with what will go on during my couple of months in college and what my summer plans are, but most of my posts will be while I'm at Disney!
PS: 5 months and 4 days!
