Happiest Place On Earth...


Well, on January 6 actually...there I go! I cannot wait to start working at Disneyland as part of their college Program. Where I found out today I will be working as and Entertainment Costuming Cast Member!!!

So...not only will I be working at Disneyland, but...I will be doing something in the field I want to pursue a career in later! It couldn't be better. I'm so excited, and so thankful that I get to go. Yes, the downside is the $636 I need to pay for rent for the first month, (and every month), but I don't want to worry about that too much. But I'm so excited, and cannot wait! After the time it's taken me to prepare, and apply, it's so nice to know that I'm finally going to be on my way!

So I really need to pray for patience. Because I'm gonna need it!

Happiest day of my life...

Okay, well I didn't get married...and I know that's supposed to be the happiest day of one's life...but my day is the happiest day of my far...

First, High School Musical 3 comes out tomorrow...but I got tickets to see the premiere at midnight...

Then...I found out I've been accpeted to the Disney College Program...Probably the best news of the day... I can celebrate by enjoying the premiere tonight...and I have no school tomorrow so I can celebrate more!!!

But I can't go through the day without thanking the Lord. He is my provider, and sustainer, and giver of life. I could not and would not be doing this without him. So all my thanks and praise goes to him!!! Thank you Father!

Hey I thought I'd post a note here so that all of you who are following my journey toward doing the Disney College Program would know the latest news...the not very fun news.

Late Monday night, as many of you may know, I received an e-mail stating that they had yet to recieve my application. They also said I needed to send it as soon as possible, that within a week they'd assume I'm no longer interested. At this point it'd been three weeks since I submitted it online and had my interview.

So... I got a little frustrated that they waited 3 weeks to inform me of that matter. So, I emailed them back telling them I'd re-send it to them. However, they also said that they had received my role checklist. The wierd and frustrating thing about that is, I faxed that along with my application. It was the last two pages after my application. So what happened to my application? I don't know.

Anyway...I had a time of major frustration and a very tear-filled hour, after I found out. It was all these different aspects together that just broke me down. Then I read some in my Bible, and thanks to Isaiah 40 and Matthew 6, I was able to calm down, and go to bed around 1 am. forward a day, and I skipped polisci to figure out the whole resending my app thing. So I went to the school and I got it re-faxed. Now, all I could do was wait to hear if they got it.

...Fast forward till Thursday. I called them to ask if they'd recieved it and they said there was no record yet. But it takes 48 hours to confirm or whatever. So if I didn't hear withing 48 hours to recall them. So, I re called them like 2 hours later. And well same thing. They both said give it a week and if you don't hear anything call us back or resend it. I had to inform them that I only had a week to re-send it in. So they told me to resend it. Now don't get me wrong, I can do that, and I will. But I think it's a bit ridiculous that they wouldn't have gotten it either time. I sent it twice! And well yea...that's it for now. I'm calling again tomorrow and asking to talk to the casting director or equivalent directly to make sure I will still be in the pool of applicants, but I have not been able to send it to them successfully. I hope I get somewhere!!!!

This is beyond frustrating. I'm trying really hard to just Trust in God and his timing, but it's very hard. And my frustration with Disney is not helping me, or them, and it's not being used to glorify God, so I know I need to work on not being anxious, frustrated etc...but it's gonna take time!!!Anyway, I wanted yall to have the most current update with my disney experience in trying to achieve my goals one step at a time....oh patience....patience, patience, God give me patience!!! Plus I know that if it's meant to be, it'll happen!!! I just need to remember Christ along the way...

It's so hard to have to be patient sometimes. For example, right now I'm anxious to hear whether I got into the Disney College Program or not...and I have to be patient and wait for God's timing, and depending on the results being happy with what his will is. I'm just learning how much more I need to continually rely on him for everything in my life.

And another thing that is trying my patience is finding a job. I'm so frustrated with trying to get a job...that I have a bad day and I get upset. It's easy to be frustrated, and angry. But I know that is not the right attitude, and that it won't make the situation any better. So I'm working on that as well. So right now, with not only being frustrated with jobhunting, but I'm anxious too, it's not a fun place to be. But I'm working on it....

Other than that I can't complain. My life is sooo joyful right now! Probably better than it's been in most my life. For that I praise the Lord everyday for. He is so great! And his Grace is so amazing! I deserve nothing that he provides, yet he still does! Oh My God! How wonderful He is!
