When I originally started this blog I thought that I would be more of an avid blogger than I am. And I honestly don’t know why I thought that… I hate writing! If you don’t believe me, just look at my English grade this last semester!! (Don’t worry mom and dad, it wasn’t THAT bad… Im just trying to prove a point here! Okay?) Anyway, I’ve always hated writing… Or so I thought. I’ve recently realized that I actually DO like writing. But I like writing when I’m not being told to do it. I like writing when it’s my choice, and when its something that I want to write about. And that is something that I am starting to realize about myself a lot lately. That I like doing things on MY terms.
I’ve always hated change. I am a creature of habit. I find solace in the mundane and routine… Well kinda. Once again, this goes back to the ON MY TERMS thing. When reflecting on my life I have come to find that most of the changes I had to go through have been forced upon me. Moving, changing schools, graduating, heck even puberty, were all things that I had no say in. And I am sad to say that at almost 20 years old, very few things in my life have been my choice. And even if it was my choice, I chose the option that people wanted or expected me to do. Like going to college. Now don’t get me wrong, I am very glad that I made that choice, and I am so blessed that I have even had the opportunity this far, but it is about time that I do something for me. And no one else.
That is one of the main reasons I am doing the Disney College Program. Yes, I am excited for the warm weather, the employee perks and discounts, making new friends, and being surrounded by the Disney Magic on a daily basis. But I think the thing that I am most excited for, is the fact that I made this decision completely on my own, and that I am taking control of my life and my future. I am finally acting, and not simply being acted upon. I am only this young once, and I know that this is going to be a pivotal point in my life. Florida won’t be a cake walk, trust me, I know that. It will be a lot of hard work. But it will all be worth it. Things are only going up from here, I can feel it in my bones! I encourage all who read this to seize the day. Take control of your life, and do what you want, not what others expect you to do. Because that is what I am going to do from here on out, my friends. And that is honestly one of the best feelings in the world.
P.S. I will try to keep my blog updated more often while I am in Disney World to keep you all up to date on everything in my life! Just remember… Adventure is out there! 🙂
