Considering I am socially awkward, and me filming a vlog that I could post on youtube is seeming impossible, I thought I would do a blog entry for all of you on what I am bringing to the apartment!
This is the comforter I have! It's pretty cute, pastel and bright color stripes!
This is the sheet set - White with different color polka dots... The picture on the comforter's package had this as the sheet set, so I'm gonna say they go together, haha
These are the towels, and a loofah! I go through towels like crazy (I hate using a wet towel) so I thought it would be smart to buy a lot when there was a good deal.
A lot of former CP's suggest the space bags, just so you can pack a lot of stuff! So I invested in the variety pack!! And then I saw they sold the shoes under, so I can store stuff under the bed. Not sure if I am going to keep this one yet, but we'll see!
Although they are not giving me credit to do the CP, I thought I would represent the school in the sweatpants way. Probably not going to be wearing these for a while when I get down there, but I have another pair I bought a while back in Orange (school colors are orange and black) and I love them!
These are the Tinker Bell pajamas my parents got me when I got into the CP, lol... So they are most definitely coming!
So I am buying these on the Disney Store's website for our apartment. My roomies and I decided to just buy shower curtains just in case, and we'll figure out who gets which when we get down there (we want 2 bedroom apartment, in Patterson or Chatham).
Any suggestions on what else I should bring?

WOW! Less than 100 days now until I check in for the CP! I am really just being lazy now that I am done with school, but I need to get on getting my stuff together. Not like I am leaving tomorrow or anything, but it will be like August 22nd, and nothing will still be done.
Also, I am trying to do a vlog, but it is harder than I thought! I didn't think I was, but when I am trying to film it, I am really camera shy! Hopefully in the next week or so I will be able to figure out a way of doing it... Anybody have any tips? If so leave me a comment! and Thanks!

So a unknown fact to all you blog readers of mine, is that my family raises seeing eye dogs for an amazing organization called Guiding Eyes for the Blind. We have been raising these furry guardian angels for about 5 years now, and it is one of the most rewarding things my family and I have ever done.
My mother's birthday is coming up, and her heart and soul is in this organization. She is hoping to raise some money for them, instead of wanting birthday gifts or cards, or any of that. She is the creator of the Guiding Eyes for the Blind Causes page on facebook, and if you would like to make a tax deductible donation to this worthy cause please follow the link that is posted near the middle of this blog entry.
You can donate as little as $5.00 to help this worthy organization. My mother and I would appreciate any penny you would care to donate.
Just to give you some background on the whole Guide Dog Puppy Raising process: My family raises a puppy from eight weeks of age, exposing them to the world around them. We help train them and watch them mature into magnificent creatures. They leave our home after around eighteen months to harness train at the school, located in Yorktown Heights NY. Once trained, they are carefully matched with a visually impaired person. Attending a graduation is the most gratifying feeling I have EVER experienced. I've seen firsthand the positive change this organization provides, and it truly is amazing. It costs approximately $45,000 to prepare our students and dogs to become a Guiding Eyes team with no cost being passed on to the graduate.
To learn more visit:
Guiding Eyes for the Blind
The FaceBook causes page for GEB
And if you would like to donate (I WOULD GREATLY, GREATLY APPRECIATE IT)
Just to enlighten you on the change it creates in a visually impaired person's life, the posted photo has some words from my 3rd puppy Island's person! The team was featured in the GEB annual golf tournament's invitation, and it makes me feel so amazing that I could play just a small part in changing a person's life. On a side note, if I have some time off while on the CP, I may just fly to Tuscon to see them in action! Very excited if that is at all possible! Just click on the image to see it full size so you can read it!
And here is the old girl in action! (ok, just kidding, she's only going to be 3 this year)
And here is My Grandpa Benny, my brother's girlfriend Christine, My Brother Stephen, Me, My Mom, and down in front is Pete and Island at their graduation. :)

Wow, I am almost to double digits on my arrival countdown! :
It is starting to really feel "real" that I will be leaving to work in Walt Disney World! I am meeting my roomies on facebook and the disboards (found 'em thanks to good ol' roommate surveys!). They all seem like really nice girls and I am looking forward to meeting them! I think we are either going to be in Chatham or Patterson. No Vista for Kelly, thank you. I know it has the whole "party" reputation, and people say it isn't that bad, but I really do not want to deal with it, ya know?
I guess my dad bought the tickets for the plane, so yeah. It's official. I've paid the mandatory $100 program assessment fee, and I put in my leave of absence for school earlier today. Man. I still can't beleive in a few months I will be moving to Florida! I've never been away from home longer than a week and a half, so I am nervous about the homesickness I will probably end up feeling. I am trying to not let my worries get in the way of my excitement!
I am DYING to see where I will be working. I have some weird feeling that the costume will require hiking boots. For some reason that is the premention that I came up with, haha.
I Promise, and I really do mean it, I will do a vlog soon. My last exam is on Wednesday morning, so as soon as I am free for the summer, I swear on my life I will do one! I'll even cyber pinky swear you! :)

Hey, just wanted to let everyone know I wasn't dead or anything like that... haha... I'm going to keep it short since it is now like 2AM my time, but I DO intend on doing a vlog soon... But I HAVE accepted my offer, and I think tomorrow I will pay the mandatory $100 fee. But yeah. Besides that.. THAT IS ABOUT IT.
