When it Rains it Shines

So if you've been watching the national news or live in Southern New England you know that there's a whole lot of flooding going around. My campus has canceled the past 3 days of classes (yesterday, today & tomorrow). We have a pond behind my dorm that had turned into a lake. The parking lot of the mall in my hometown looks like this:

Here's a Video

As you can see we're a little flooded. So this morning I woke up to the sound of garbage trucks at 7:30 taking the dumpsters and I was like "hey, I'll check my email to see if classes are canceled..." So I connect my iPod to the internet and see that I have 3 new emails... I don't remember what the first two were but the next one was DISNEY!! I'M A FALL 2010 MERCH CP!!!

My roommate was up because she got a million texts about classes being canceled and I shove my iPod in her face and she was happy that I got in. Then I called my mom (and woke her up) telling her that I got in. I was so frustrated last week because I've been waiting for over 2 months now. So she was really happy for me.

So I quickly accepted and will be checking in August 9th. I was really surprised to see the first date on the list because I knew that some people haven't been able to pick it.. but I got it because I know a lot of people are going that day and I'll get first pick of the apartments. Also, I'm gonna need a roommate/apartment mates. So if you're wellness and want to live in Chatham post a comment on here!

I told my friends and they're all really excited for me and were asking me all about it. I'm really excited. I've been waiting far too long for this. I was getting really pessimistic about it thinking I wasn't going to get it and that they put me through 3 months of hell just waiting. But I got it!

I'm definitely doing the 8/9/10 pre-check-in dinner and have joined the event. I hope to see all of you down there!

P.S. You all should watch Skins. It's a British show but I've caught up on all the episodes online through Netflix and random Japanese sites. The season just ended but it's awesome. That's what I dedicated my whole spring break to lol.

Nothing New.. Just an Update

So as the title says, nothing new has happened.

Last-last Thursday I called and added Full Service Food and Beverage to my list of roles. A couple of days later I called to check on the status of my application but had to leave a message... They haven't gotten back to me from that call yet. So yesterday I emailed them asking the same thing. Hopefully they'll get back to me. Friday was the two month mark from my interview. It really sucks waiting this long. I didn't ever think of this happening when I applied.

But in other news! I got a lot of money from Johnson and Wales! So if Disney doesn't end up happening in the Fall I have JWU to look forward to!

Oh, and 33 days until the ultimate deadline of April 30th.

Six Weeks

So.. I'm officially tired of waiting. Today is my now defunct 6 week mark. I have, at most, one month and 3 weeks of more waiting. I'm basically halfway there. I'm not sure what I'll do if I have to wait 7 or 8 more weeks. Why am I pending? I thought I did everything right. I have been wanting this since my mom first told my sister about it when she was a freshman in college. That was SIX years ago. I know that I am still a freshman and that I have 3 (or more) more years to be able to do the program. But I have really gotten to know a lot of the people who are going down there either in May/June or August. I really want to meet them.

With the fact that today is my six week mark it is just sort of depressing. Why are people who apply now hearing back within 1-2 weeks and getting in?

Well, this is my pessimistic post. Now I'm going to get dinner.
