The day before check-in, my mother and I drove down to Anaheim from Fresno, which is about four/five hours away. By the time we got to the Econolodge, we were pretty damn knackered. HOWEVER, I’d made plans to have dinner with Caitlyn, my would-be roommate, and her father. In retrospect, I’m glad I did. It put me at ease a little, and it guaranteed I would know at least ONE person when I got to check-in.
Which was a clusterfuck in and of itself. Check-in wasn’t due to start until eight in the morning, but I wanted a damn SINGLE BED. I got there at about 6:30, and there were already a handful of people there. An hour later, there was a line around the block. The process was simple enough. You take your picture, sign paper work, and make sure all of your forms are ready to go. They give you your keys, and you’re all set.
My original room was 308. I’m dragging all of my luggage up with the help of my mom. Caitlyn is following behind. As we’re starting to unpack, my mom is like,
“HOLDONHOLDONHOLDON. There are ants in this sink. :|”
She, being the momma bear that she is, flags someone down. They move us to room 500, which is the MASSIVELY HUGE suite. It was pretty awesome. Not gonna lie.
The rest of that day is a blur, really. There was a ton of unpacking, and loads of exhaustion. Two of my roomies were from China. Caitlyn was from Ohio. Jacky was from Texas, and for a while, we got along well enough.
Four months into the program, and I figure that it’s just about time for me to start cracking down on this thing. I kept putting it off, and putting it off, and now I’m at the point where I’m not quite sure where to begin. A part of me is glad I waited. I’ve have time to reflect on my experience up to this point, and I won’t be posting in the heat of the moment, as it were.
So, yes. Be expecting updates very, very soon!
I mean, sure. I’ll be at the Happiest Place on Earth. I’ll be leaving today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy, and I’m REALLY excited for it, but I’m also scared.
This is too clever not to reblog.
My postcard! WOO!
ELECTRONICS AND PERSONALS
Basically, I FEEL LIKE DANCING NOW. I’ll be arriving to the Disneyland Resort on January 8th and coming back home on August 18th. THIS IS ALL REAL, GUYS. This is LEGIT happening. Now? It’s time to save up money for things that I’ll need for my apartment. <3
Do the pair of them count? They should, because whenever I think of one, I think of the other. SHHH. IT TOTALLY COUNTS.
