|Out for Yelitza's Birthday!|
We can all take a collective exhale as everything worked out with my presentations and exams! Somehow things always do turn out, we just can't always see that when we're in the thick of it. After going in and talking to my accounting teacher, we fixed the miss-posted presentation (the girl in my group I guess somehow had a wrong extra couple letters at the end of the link so it wouldn't open, she sent it to me and I posted it). My accounting teacher let me sweat all day though by not responding to my email about posting it, or making it, until 12 hours later! Man did I celebrate when I saw that it was graded!

Next up was my financial accounting final. We had 89 questions and some people were finished in 15 minutes! I couldn't even click through all the answers (it was on the computer) in 15 minutes, let alone read the questions! I ended up doing alright though so that's good! Our professor is pretty good at marking (minus that presentation problem) so we got our grades the next day which was awesome! I don't think I will become any kind of accountant, but I have a lot of respect for them. It's a tough tedious job! The slightest error, or misreading of a figure can lead to a whole trail of mistakes that can lead to big issues. I did enjoy journalizing though, it was kind of peaceful haha.

The rest of Thursday was spent in the true Floridian summer spirit - suntanning and reading by the pool :D
|I'm so not a fan. Although I would definitely be happy to|

|I LOVE that they actually have a shirt of this!|
This question gets asked so often!
My friend Poldi is in Orlando on vacation with his Mum from Germany! Poldi was a cast member during my first contract and I haven't seen him in over a year so it was nice to get to hang out! We decided to go to the movies. The only problem was the extreme downpour that wasn't letting up and the distance between myself and the theatre.
I was at the long yellow trimmed building to the right of the big boat, and had to get to the large brown building by the fountain and blue globe to the left of center. So I got to run through Downtown Disney without shoes (I had flip flops and would have died!) in a white t shirt in pouring rain. It's an ongoing theme in my Disney life that everytime I wear white it pours. Every. single. time. I looked like a drowned rat by the time I got there! But the movie was hilarious (though I still liked Bridesmaids more!!) and it was fun seeing Poldi. I had been planning on going to Disney the next day as my fantastic friend Yelitza said she would let me and Poldi in!

|How cool are these!! Ipod/Ipad/Iphone covers!|
Saturday morning Poldi and his Mum picked me up and we headed to the Boardwalk as Yelitza was meeting us as the World Showcase entrance. Being the only one who didn't speak Spanish I apparently missed out on a hilarious conversation between Poldi, Yelitza and the security guard checking bags. I need Rosetta Stone!!! We headed to Soarin' first and then Mission Space! Poldi's old manager Nicholas is now the area manager in Canada so we went to see if he was working, but alas, he was off! We headed over to Hollywood Studios and rode the Tower of Terror and Rockin Roller Coaster! We tried to get a fast pass for Toy Story Mania but at 1230pm they were sold out for the day! I know it's a popular ride, but the park was open until 9 or 10! We also watched an American Idol show which was really fun. I like seeing them sing - they're usually pretty good!

After dinner we watched Illuminations and headed for the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom. I'd never down it before, but we arrived right near the end of Magic, Memories and You and then watched Wishes! It was so cool seeing Illuminations and Wishes in the same night! Then we rode Big Thunder Mountain and The Haunted Mansion before watching the Main Street Electrical Parade!
We took the lynx bus back to I-drive, where Poldi's Mum said I couldn't walk 2 miles home alone (thank goodness!) so invited me to stay at their hotel suite with them! I got my own big comfy double bed, brand new clean jammies and fell asleep right away! It was sooooo nice! My apartment mattress is the same as the Commons ones - plasticy blue uncomfortableness! A real bed was such a treat! Then in the morning they got a free continental breakfast so I got to have waffles!!! Man o' Man! Could life get any better? Then Poldi's Mum was reading/teaching me some German language and about what is going on in their country through magazines she had brought for the plane!! So much fun!!! The scandals are fantastic over there!

On a random note, my purse has finally met it's end. I got this purse at a throw out from Miss. Alysha Adcock a reallly long time ago. Like in May or so of 2009. I have used it religiously and it started to fall apart...a bit. It got to the point where some friends said they wouldn't hang out with me if I didn't get a new purse. So, I finally gave in and it met it's demise! RIP Purse!!
|You can see about half of the outer layer had fallen off...|
Until next time!!
