My little strip of Hollywood Studios

Dear Sunset Market Ranch

Since I was little all I wanted to do was work at my favorite place on earth, Disney World. I finally got the chance to make this childhood dream a reality when I was accepted into the Disney College Program. When I found out I would be working at Disney World for four months, I was excited and nervous all at the same time. In August I found out that Sunset Market Ranch would be my home away from home. Turns out, Sunset Market Ranch was the best home I could've asked for.

Out of all the parks, Hollywood Studios is my all time favorite. With rides like Tower of Terror, Areosmith's Rockin' Roller Coaster, and Toy Story Midway Mania I'd say they have the best rides out of any of the four parks. I was so excited to learn that I would be at my favorite park, every day. When I first saw the costume I would be wearing, all I could do was laugh at this silly looking sunflower apron. My first time putting it on, I didn't even know how the apron was actually supposed to go on.

Sunset Market Ranch introduced me to the most amazing people I have ever met from all over the world. When you spend so much time with people, they become your family and that is exactly what these people are to me. On days where worked seemed extra difficult, these people made it a little more bearable. I mean these are the people I spent Christmas and New Year with this year. Thank you Sunset for these people in my life.

Working at Sunset gave me this new sense of confidence. I was always talking to new people and really had to be confident in everything I was doing. All my friends have noticed that something has changed since I finished my program. I owe it all to Sunset.

Being back at school just isn't the same after an experience like the one I had at Disney. I miss all the people, the excitement, and surprisingly, the work place. I miss my leader Gustavo walking in and screaming, "HELLO HUMANS AHHH!!" like he was Mike Wazowski on Laugh Floor. I miss everyone screaming, "TIME TO SINNNNGGG!" when their shift was over. I miss all the crazy stories we would tell on break about the guests that day. I miss everything about Sunset Market Ranch. Don't worry, the end of my program definitely was just the beginning of my journey with the Disney Company.

Thank you Sunset for everything, my "Sunset tattoos" and all.

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.

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.
