I Accepted A Position With The Disney College Program

For the first time in forever, my boss will be a mouse!!!


Erin Locke, you just got accepted to the Disney College Program! What are you gonna do next?

I'm going to Disney World!

No seriously. That's how I'm celebrating. I'm going to Disney World.

And my trip begins in just 10 short days!!

So after writing article after article about my experiences going through the application process of the Disney College Program, I have officially been accepted!

I can't believe I'm going to have a mouse for a boss. Doesn't that sound like so much fun?

I've prayed for this opportunity since January, and I've dreamt of doing this since I was little.

I've even had my Bible study member and leader praying for me. And as it turns out, it's definitely in God's plan for me, which I'm incredibly thankful for.

I feel like I finally understand why God has been closing so many doors this past year. He had been telling me "no" a lot more than I wanted him to, and I think this may be why. If he knows everything, surely he knew that I would be doing the college program way back when I rushed in the fall and didn't get a bid.

Long story short, God knows what he's doing! And I'm so thankful that he does.

I'm going to be working in Quick Service Food & Beverage, and I can't wait! People have asked me how much experience I have in the role that I've been accepted for.

...The answer is none...

I'm much better at baking, but I honestly know close to nothing about food.

But don't be worried if the same thing happens to you! I'm just thrilled to get to be at my favorite place on earth for 5 months straight!

Regardless of my experience working with food, I am so ecstatic.

My arrival date is August 18, 2019, and I'll be there until January 2, 2020!

That leaves me a total of only 19 weeks to finish planning my wedding. That's for about 4 months. I'm not freaking out, you're freaking out.

So as I work toward planning my wedding this summer before I leave, I will be thinking of my Disney adventure coming up!

I'm grateful that God knows his plans long before I figure them out. I'm also thankful that he chose this path for me knowing that it's been my dream since I was tiny. And I know that he has big plans for me to come while I'm there!

Good luck to everyone applying, and congrats to everyone who's been accepted!

Have a magical day! °o°

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
