A few months ago, I felt like the semester would never end. Two weeks felt like two years, and as I still tried to wrap my head around the fact that I was thousands of miles from my family and everything that I knew, it seemed like I would never get settled. What I've realized, I think, is that everything is so transient right now... where I am, what I'm doing, who I know... and one day, settling down in one place is going to be so great.
I was lucky enough to have my family visit me last week over Christmas. And when I say lucky, I mean... blessed, elated, so happy! We had a fabulous time... even though Dad ran us ragged through the parks every day. (I'm pretty sure we would've been fine without going a day or two the whole week... but it made him happy, I guess.) It was hard to let them leave, or not to leave with them, but I have things to finish here. If not to find a position in the creative dept, to keep putting one foot in front of another and not give up until I can't go anymore.
That being said, I guess it's a good time to let everyone know that I am sticking around, at least until May 14. While I wasn't accepted for any of the Professional Internships I applied for, my application to extend my program was accepted. And while it's not the most ideal — I would've liked to at least move up just a little — it's something. So I'm going to stick to it for now, ride it out, and see how it goes. Maybe being at Hollywood Studios next semester will offer different opportunities.
Yep, I'm headed to DHS. I think I will be at Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Car Stunt Show. Exciting, right? I hope I get earplugs with my costume. It's not my favorite attraction over there, but I'm not complaining. I'm going to see how it goes, and realize that other than working outdoors all day, there are a lot of pros about it that might make it all worth it.
So, until then... and until I can remember that I have a blog I need to update... thanks for reading. :)
