I think it's all over... it is now.

Today I handed in my last ever assignment for university. 
It's official. I've finished.

Between last Friday and this Friday I had around 16,000 words worth of assignments to submit. A pretty intense "final push" if you ask me. There's a couple of assignments in there I'm not so sure about, but I've got high hopes for the rest. 

So after I handed my last essay in today I felt a bit like this...

In general I consider myself to be a little more organised (some might call it obsessive compulsive) than the average person. Throughout life I've always known what the next step was going to be, there's always been another stage ahead of where I am in "the plan". After school I knew I was going to college, after college I knew I was going to university, but now the only thing afterwards is uncertainty and it scares THE HELL OUT OF ME!

It's not like I have absolutely no idea what's going to happen next, 
it's just that there are a lot of "ifs" involved. 
I'm now starting the epic task of applying for jobs and internships and what-not... wish me luck.

Picture for thought

The Great Gatsby comes out next week. 
Although I have no idea about The Great Gatsby, my friend Rosita is a massive Gatsby fan and is unbelievably excited.
I saw the trailer for the first time today and even as someone new, it looks like it's going to be awesome.

When You Wish Upon A Star (Part 1)

So last summer I managed to bag the best job I've ever had; I was a Custodial Showkeeper at the Hollywood Studios theme park in Walt Disney World!

I applied for the Disney International College Program through a company called Yummy Jobs. They actually came into my uni and did a talk about it. I went to the talk, put my name down, applied online, progressed through the interview stages and got an e-mail saying that I had been accepted onto the program! 


I won't lie, to begin with my excitement was tainted by devastation. One of my best friends had applied too and didn't get through the final stage, and on top of that my role was going to be in custodial... a.k.a. cleaning. 
I'd been so excited for both my friend and I to be going together and having the best summer ever, but it all seemed to be falling apart a bit.

I talked to my friend about it and she told me that I was the biggest Disney geek she knew and that if I didn't go for it I would regret it for the rest of my life.

I'm pretty sure she was right.

I absolutely loved it. I'll say more another day. :)
