How you will feel during your first week in the DCP

So many emotions, so little time.

How you will feel during your first week in the DCP

The moment is here. The moment we have been waiting for all our life. We are going to work at Walt Disney World (or Land). This is a dream come true to so many people, but what outsiders don't realize, is that the first week you aren't even considered cast members yet. The first week is a mixture of so many different emotions. Let me just help you understand a little.

1. When you meet your roommates

The people who you haven't seen other than through a computer screen are now standing in front of you. There is no better feeling than meeting your roommates for the first time and instantly falling in love. Its a good feeling knowing that you picked grade-A roommates to live with.

2. When you have to actually unload your car and now find a place to put everything

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F18%2F636071540311859043897033621_giphy%2520%283%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=101&h=c82d62a9eef16dee6e924b1f0b98d91aeb49fe1a842c23982fd46bc7f7db39c6&size=980x&c=1643737720 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F18%252F636071540311859043897033621_giphy%252520%25283%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D101%26h%3Dc82d62a9eef16dee6e924b1f0b98d91aeb49fe1a842c23982fd46bc7f7db39c6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1643737720%22%7D" expand=1]

Remember how it seemed like a great idea to bring those 20 coffee cups? Yeah, it wasn't. You never realize how much stuff you actually have until you have to find a space for it, with 7 other girls living here. Not only do you have to find a place to put all of your stuff, but you need a place for all your suitcases and boxes. Good luck.

3. When you find out your work location

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F22%2F636074608231624477-1826828070_giphy%2520%288%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=673&h=60f0b0c3029797ca17a78be126af8d96da0347bb89e904bfe92c1df09345748d&size=980x&c=2185158813 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F22%252F636074608231624477-1826828070_giphy%252520%25288%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D673%26h%3D60f0b0c3029797ca17a78be126af8d96da0347bb89e904bfe92c1df09345748d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2185158813%22%7D" expand=1] In case you don't know much about the program, they keep you kind of in the dark about a lot of things, work location included. That moment that you find out is such relief and excitement, its indescribable. If it is FantasyLand at Magic Kingdom, or Housekeeping at the Pop Century, every bit of it is magical. When you find out your location, your basically in a room with 20-30 other people, so it's really embarrassing when you begin to cry because of your excitement.

4. When you meet people from all over the world

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F22%2F636074609138216354-1379717687_giphy%2520%285%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=206&h=82cc540d59a8d432e52f44b0743f3fab37ac6c5bdb875d5c2b5a37e99c662710&size=980x&c=1597304658 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F22%252F636074609138216354-1379717687_giphy%252520%25285%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D206%26h%3D82cc540d59a8d432e52f44b0743f3fab37ac6c5bdb875d5c2b5a37e99c662710%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1597304658%22%7D" expand=1]

You here that foreign accent, and quickly turn around. Thats right. You just met someone from overseas. A dream come true? Absolutely. Now you basically need to attempt to be best friends with this person. My suggestion is to just go to the World Showcase in EPCOT and find friends from all of those countries. Learning about new cultures is what makes this program so great.

5. When you are attempting to learn your way around

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F22%2F636074609753310714-243091835_giphy%2520%286%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=701&h=2243a5ac5bd766ace15c6d0a8eb87ff27601a7ef8c5ba40af890163e26764ad5&size=980x&c=3363369690 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F22%252F636074609753310714-243091835_giphy%252520%25286%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D701%26h%3D2243a5ac5bd766ace15c6d0a8eb87ff27601a7ef8c5ba40af890163e26764ad5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3363369690%22%7D" expand=1]

The laundry facility, the mailbox, the clubhouse, the bus stop, your aparment. It is all new and now you are in charge of finding it. Thankfully, you will have other roommates to get lost with, but you will get lost and you will be confused. I'd leave early.

6. When you realize this is your life now

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F08%2F18%2F636071568963797033-1892864405_giphy%2520%287%29.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=688&h=4991c7ca480474bdb598df33ea4643de58db51165d0ee2bee04e59755f0a59ce&size=980x&c=3901252323 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F08%252F18%252F636071568963797033-1892864405_giphy%252520%25287%2529.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D688%26h%3D4991c7ca480474bdb598df33ea4643de58db51165d0ee2bee04e59755f0a59ce%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3901252323%22%7D" expand=1]

Wait, you mean I actually get to live and work at the most magical place on earth? It is an unbelievable feeling to know that you were given this kind of opportunity. Enjoy it for everything that its worth.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
