So yeah...

It's been quite a while since I last blogged...

Nothing has really been going on. Basicly I've just been working as much as possible so that I has the cash when I get down to Disney. Oh yeah. I had a big trash party. I threw like almost everything I own out. Well, not everything. Just alot of random junk. I got rid of like two trash bags of clothes that I then donated to Goodwill.

I want to start packing. Like now. But sadly Disney is still three weeks away. In fact, I will be on the road heading towards Disney excatly three weeks from now. I'm thinking I'll be somewhere in southern Illinois. Maybe. Maybe mid-Illinois. I really don't know. But it's coming. Very quickly at that.

I'm going to do a vlog here soon. I need to get back on track with that. I need more viewers though and I need comments and suggestions!!! SUBSCRIBE!!! Pretty pretty please with a cherry on top!!! Ask me questions! I can't do vlogs without questions!!!

So yeah, thats about it...

The waiting game...

So yeah, it's been 11 days since my interview. I'm getting really anxious. I'm hoping I get the news whether or not I'm accepted into the program this week!

I'm also contemplating whether or not I should start a vlog. I think I will to help pass the time. I just don't really know what to do. Can I use my webcam to record a video? Or do I need a fancy camera? And I don't really know how to edit the video all cool like some of the other Disney CPers. I think it would be ok to use Windows Movie Maker, but I don't really know how to use it. I'll figure it out I guess... If I really do go through with this, I think I'm going to buy a flip camera so that I can take it on all of my fun Disney adventures. That would be cool.

So yeah, thats all I really have for the time being. Kinda bored, really.

Have a magical day!!!

The intro...

Hello everyone!!!

My name is Emily Holland. I am 21 years old and my birthday is July 1st. I live in Rock Island, Illinois and have lived here my entire life. I graduated from Rock Island High School in 06'. I attended Black Hawk College with my major in biology(its a community college). I eventually want to get my Ph.D in marine biology. I graduated from Black Hawk in spring of 09' with my associates degree in biology. My initial plan was to join the US Navy so I could earn money and eventually go to my dream school, The Florida Institute of Technology. It's considered to have one of the best marine biology programs in the country. Well, the navy thing didn't work because of a heart problem I have (which I don't think is a big deal but whatever. lol). So I was looking for another option in which could help me with my dream of becoming a marine biologist. I have always loved Disney World, have visited three times: for my 7th birthday, when I was 13, and last year for my 21st birthday. I grew up with Disney, so when I found the CP, I was super excited. Being given the chance to work for Disney, be a part of the magic, and to see the smiles on childrens faces when they first see Cinderellas castle, would just mean the world to me. I had my interview last week, 2/4, and was told I would hear in 4-6 weeks. Its a horrible waiting game. the jobs I applied for that I talked about in my interivew are attractions, more specifically Kilimanjaro Safari, and merch, because thats what I'm good at and what I've done for my entire working career. I can't really think of anything else to say. I've pretty much covered it all. Of course, I'm going to try to keep this updated for whatever goes on. I also ask that anyone thats doing a vlog to message me and give me tips, because I think I'm going to start one and I don't really know what to do. lol. So yeah. With that, I will say....
Have a magical day!
