Why yes, I am alive.

Dang yo I'm slacking on updating! It's worse because I'm not even doing anything that's preventing me from updating, but at the same time I don't want to bore you folks with nonsense.

My CP begins in almost a month, which is ridiculous. Good news is that I've finally gotten my bedding (and some towels) and even an alarm clock! Look at me go haha. It's taken me forever, but things finally look like they're coming together.. I'm really excited to be going but at the same time I'm going to miss my mom and my baby (my cat :) ) a LOT. My cat keeps hanging around me lately and I feel bad because he doesn't know why I'll be gone, and I'm hoping he won't shun me for being gone for six months.. (okay, it sounds way overdramatic, but I love my cat haha.) And I'm really really close to my mom so it's going to be weird not seeing her for so long. Yes, I'm a baby, but my mom and I live with just eachother and I don't want her to be lonely. Leave me alone, I just love my mommy. :)

ANYHOOZ. Other than that there's really nothing new to say. OH! I get to go to Passion 2010 because Katie and her family are awesome. :) So I'm REALLY excited about that! Woot woot!

ALSO I've noticed my blog is being jank and the background is white, as are visited links. I've been trying to fix it but Blogspot is being jank, so until then I'm sorry that you have to put up with my ghettofab blog!

Have a good day! Hopefully I'll talk to you guys more often :)

It's beginning to look [nothing] like Christmas

So it's Christmas time, woot! I went to a friend's Christmas party over at UGA, it was nice to see old friends.. we did secret santa and I gifted ginger snaps and Ghirardelli cocoa because I'm lame like that; in return I got a $15 iTunes giftcard, what what! If you know any good songs worthy of being downloaded let me know! :)

So I feel bad for my friends: I'm totally poor and can't afford any gifts worth giving - not only that, but I am not creative in the least so I can't make anything that would resemble anything at all. Sorry :( Someday when I win the lottery (or Nick's heart) (just kidding) (kind of) everyone will get gifts that will blow them away. Trufax.

ANYWAY! It's kind of freaking me out how close the CP is! Only one more month after the new year.. weird. My mom said she'd take me shopping on Christmas Eve at Target for room stuff that I'll need :) Is excited! More than that, I'm excited to be in warmer weather.. I love the cold but if it's not going to man up and be real winter weather (aka, snow!) then it's just not worth my time hahah. Also I stole the basis for the list of things I need to pack/get from Katie's blog because I'm lazy and plagiarize like that. Okay, well, I edited some stuff because I'm not cool enough to have an 80s-tastic jacket so yeah.

Random: The Polar Express kind of creeps me out. This is my second time watching it courtesy of the Disney Channel and I don't know, I like it but at the same time I don't haha. It's just a tad weird for me.. I don't know haha.

You can say what you want, but it's only getting better..

I GOT 3 As! AHH! I AM SO EXCITED! I, of course, got a C in math, BUT I passed! (a little upset about that because I had an 80 before the final, which means.. yeah. Oh well, I passed, I don't have to take it again unless I really want to.) It was mostly a really awesome moment because I'd been thinking all my grades had dipped well below As (I hadn't done almost ANY French homework because I ALWAYS forgot, and my psych exams nearing the end of the semester were not very good.) Anyway, I set iTunes to to "Sooner or Later" and covered up my grades with my hands and uncovered them one-by-one. (I am such a nerd like that..) ANYWAY the really awesome part was when I got up and screamed and did my lame "OH MY GOSH I GOT AN A IN MORE THAN ONE CLASS" dance and noticed that the time was 11:11. Hello, God? You rock. The end.

Anyway, you all must think I'm really dumb for getting so excited over a few As, but the thing is in high school I did rather well but I was one of those kids that never had to study for stuff. Well, it turns out college is a bit different (not too much, I did take AP courses but they were courses I was interested in) and it's just difficult to balance out four courses because I'm stupid like that and I'm not used to actually studying. Anyway, bottom line is last year I did really badly because near the end of the semester I was just like "bump it" and stopped going to math (so I got an F.. woo) and I didn't go to my Bio lab one day because I was lazy and stupid and that day just happened to be the day of our Lab Practical. Bottom line is, last year I got really shoddy grades because I'm a moron. So this year I was on financial aid probation (which required me to take out a loan. Sad face.) and if I got grades that were that bad again I would be in "trouble" or something.. so I was kind of stressed about that. Anyway, yeah. That leads onto another thing..

I took out a loan. Since I won't be in school again until August (I'm not getting any sort of credit from my school for the CP), I have six months to get money so I can pay it back while it has no interest accumulated. I was going to do the economic deferment thing but it turns out you actually have to have pay stubs and all that in order to do that, and since I don't start until February I'm kind of just like, you know what? I think I'll just work really hard and save up and pay as much off as I can. Once I'm back home in August, I'll just get a part time job while I'm in school and just pay it.. just pay what I can. That's really all I can do. Yes, it's going to suck but it could definitely be a lot worse. I owe $1750. I'm just kind of scared haha. Disney will be costing much, much more than I'll be receiving but.. I still think it will be worth it. You gotta live a little, right? I think so.

I also just asked out loud, unintentionally, if this was all a good thing, and "A Step In The Right Direction" started playing haha. I think so too, Angela Lansbury :)

SO! Yeah. Sorry, boring post, I just had to get some of that off of my chest :)

Oh, and two songs! (I forgot to put one up last time!)
Blame It On Me - Parachute
I got the title from this song :) I don't know, it just fits my mood right now haha

Sooner or Later - Michelle Branch
I LOVE her. She finally has a new single that's just her (and not The Wreckers.) It's still country but it's an AWESOME song. (That makes it sound like I don't like country; I fully love country, I just mean it's not her old pop stuff :) )

"This is the longest relationship I've ever had, beating my previous record of never."

- quote from True Jackson VP :)

So I've just been relaxing over the break, nothing really new to say. I invested in a ginormous Disney princess coloring book, so that's all fun; maybe future roomies will color with me.. or not. Either way, hahah. I've mostly been coloring, watching TV (mostly Nickelodeon.. gasp! I'm such a blasphemer haha) and sleeping. A sad existence, hahah. I'm hopefully going to one of my friend's Christmas parties, so I'll get to wear a tacky Christmas sweater, woot! (! I should go buy that today..)

But overall it's been really rainy and dark and cold so it's been nice to just sit inside with the Christmas lights on.. I'm thinking of rereading Jane Eyre, that book is the (seriously. If you haven't read it you're missing out.) I've also been wanting to play Harvest Moon really badly; I used to have it on GBA but I accidentally spilt milk over it (and I totally cried.) So anyway, now I don't have it and only sketchy people sell it on GBA. BLAH. Whatevs. Someday I'll get it. SOMEDAY (my priiiince will come).

Anyway, enough of this nonsense! I hope y'all are having a good break, and if you aren't on break yet, I hope you're having a good time nonetheless! I'm seriously amazed I even have one person following me, so thank you to all of you who are crazy enough to keep reading :) You guys seriously rock :)

Have a great day, guys! :) Talk to you next time!

No but really. Katie and I decided to interview each other but it turned out to be a lot of insanity.. So yeah. Enjoy! Or not.. hahah. Either way, it's all good!

Un video pour vous!

Exam stuff.

Sorry for the excessive posting but I took a nap after my history final today and now I'm up at midnight, not studying for my math and/or French. Therefore I have nothing else to do. I was planning on watching Cinderella en francais but none of my Disney movies have French tracks.. so I'm just sitting here. I should at least take a shower or something.. but I won't. You see, I'm tired as anything, but I'm restless. Stress? I guess so. I'm not NEARLY as anxious about these two exams as I was today.. which is odd, as I'm AWFUL at math and should be studying.. and I'm dreading the oral exam.

Until I realized that dude, I'm only technically in French I - I don't have to be perfect. I don't know why I always think I have to be just as good as the teachers. Seriously. Maybe I'm mental.

I totally bombed my history final today, though. And I only wrote 1.5 pages of the extra history paper I was assigned (it was supposed to be 3-4.. oops). Hopefully the 98 from my major essay will pull me through though. And I have an 80.6 in math right now. I will punch myself if I drop to a C. I MUST PASS THIS EXAM! (I mean I should at least do better than a 50.. I hope..) And I have four more problems in my psych exam, so I'm going to knock those out tomorrow as well.

ANYWAY. Sorry. Hopefully by tomorrow regular, non-stressed out posting should resume. I just needed a place to vent, really, haha. Also, Katie.. I totally replied to your comment in my last post, I don't know why it keeps saying there's only one comment. Idk if you noticed that but I'm just pointing it out if not.

Sorry if my writing is off, I've written way too many papers in this span of time and my brain has melted. I think that's why I'm not so nervous about tomorrow. I don't know haha.

Aaaaaand lastly:

1 Peter 5:7
Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you. :)

Imagine if the Bible used emoticons. There'd be smiley faces all over the place.

Heeeyy me..

So I'm at Barnes & Noble, trying to study. I swear I have ADD. I've to finish a paper and finish cramming for my history final tomorrow. I also need to get my psych exam finished. How do people do this? This is insane. I guess they start off by getting OFF the internet.. but I need the internet! Half the terms I've been assigned to define aren't in the book. Bleh.

I'm in a really pleasant area.. or, I was, anyway. It's not sunny anymore. But earlier I was stuck in the corner at a small table (well, I still am..), and the sun was shining and I was listening to Ray LaMontagne and drinking a dirty chai (I learned today that's what they call a chai latte with a shot of espresso.. never knew.) It was incredibly picturesque, which is kind of weird, but it was cool the way the light was coming into the room. Now it's kind of cold and the sun's behind the clouds. Ray is still serenading me though. (I'm beginning to say that instead of "I'm listening to ___". Like, no, I'm not listening to Nick Jonas. He's serenading me. Duh.)

I'm so hongray. I had turkey bacon today. I don't really consider it bacon, more like delicious fried turkey strips. Anyway, I only had a few and so I'm still hongray.

At church today El Pastoro dude was talking about Joseph (you know.. Jesus' dad. Not to be confused with Technicolor Raincoat Joseph) and how.. I don't remember. I lost my train of thought. But it ended with him saying how God is FOR you. He never said your life would be free from problems, but that it will be full of peace. I think it's awesome how God always manages to coincide with all the things going on in life. You know what I mean? Every time I go to worship, there's always a message that seems to conjunct with things going on in my life. And everyone's life. I just think it's awesome how they do that.

/ramble. Okay. I guess I should go finish studying or something. & good luck to those of you cramming and writing last-minute papers. I FEEL YOUR PAIN.

Song of the day? Yes please.
Empty . Ray LaMontagne

How far do I have to go to get to you?

I'm really not worried about not having money forever. I'm not worried about anything other than getting over this mountain of papers, projects, and exams. Just until Tuesday or so.. I'm not really sure, I have yet to schedule my final with my French teacher, which will basically consist of me going into her office and speaking only in French (we get points marked off for speaking English, even if it's just to say, "What is the word for.."). So yeah. I just finished a psychology article review, earlier today I did a French exam and speaking project, tomorrow I have a history quiz, Monday a history paper due, and history final. Tuesday, math final. Psych final via e-mail, due Wednesday. Blah. I'm most irked about the history paper thing because we JUST did a major essay, and the day we turned it in he assigned another. Like, thanks, because it's not like I'm going to be writing an in-class essay anyway.. ugh.


I know some kids have it worse off than me, but still. I'm too stupid for this stuff haha. I'm just saying, having Disney cloud my thoughts is not helping.

I just can't wait until I'm done for two months and can watch Lifetime movies and be lame.

Also I think I'm going to start doing a song of the day :) Today's iiiis:
Many the Miles . Sara Bareilles
I love this song, and it just really speaks out to me today. Like the first line: "there's too many things I haven't done yet" hahah. Lame kidding aside though, this song is the (get used to me saying that.. I'm stuck in the '90s, apparently)

The results are in..

I am not going to be a character performer at WDW. Called it! :) It's all good with me because I am pretty dang excited for merchandise! I'm tempted to request where I want to be put but at the same time I kind of want God to direct this one. Not like He wouldn't, but you know what I mean. If I chose and got my choice, I'd always wonder where I'd be placed otherwise because I'm lame like that.

ANYWAY! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving & Thanksgiving break! Hopefully your finals aren't sneaking up on you like mine are.. boo last minute papers and projects. Fingers crossed we all make it through this semester with good grades :)

There's a possibility.

I wish I could say something new has happened, but nothing has. Well, that's kind of a lie: I think I found a roommate who seems pretty normal, so that's good. I think.

But I don't know, I still have my doubts about everything. I feel like this is what pre-wedding jitters feel like hahah. I don't know; I'm doing this no matter what, but fears and doubts pop in my head at random and kind of bring me down. I'll get over it eventually, but for now I'm kind of freaking out, now that I realize what I'm leaving behind. But I have to stop looking back and keep moving forward! It just helps when you know where exactly "forward" leads haha.

And Disney, e-mail me telling me I epically failed at your audition. Because it's annoying how I keep checking my e-mail every two seconds and it's not you. Fix that?
Love always, Christine.

Hope all is well with you guys :)

First Vlog :)

I love the face that I'm making in the picture before you press play. Thanks Youtube, I love you too.

BlahBlah & 10 Random Things

Nothing new to say, really, except that today I'll be paying my recruiting fee and that I'm still practicing my French. I wish more people did language tags because there's not any information I can find on what the phone 'test' is really even about. I'll post about it when I actually do it, I guess :) Well, as much as I think I'm allowed to post.

Also I forgot to mention that the same day I got accepted was the same day I auditioned for a character role. (I checked my e-mail AFTER the audition just in case it was bad news haha.) I'm not very optimistic about the results or anything but at the same time I don't really care either way at this point because I am dang excited for merchandise.

Also I guess while I have all this free time (I use that term loosely.. I have a lot of school stuff to be doing haha) I'll let you know 10 facts about me :)

1. Meeko shunned me (accidentally) at Disneyland once and it made me cry at the time, so it's my mission to someday get him to sign something and take a picture with me. Meeko, I still love you boo!

2. I have a ridiculously unhealthy obsession with iCarly. Yes, a Nickelodeon show on a Disney blog.. boo me. I'm well aware of how bad the show actually is, but I still love it.. it makes me smile :)

3. I love love LOVE reading. Childrens' lit and classic lit are my favorites, though really I read just about everything.

4. I can play trumpet.. 'fluently' haha. I'm listening to "Full Moon Crazy" (Honor Society) and just hearing the really high trumpet notes hurts my lips. Bah.

5. Lately I've noticed that I tend to call pretty, sunny, comfortably warm days that make me crave Mexican food, "Jason Castro days." There's really no reason for this that I can think of other than that he sings happy songs. Or that his songs make me happy. Either/or.

6. All of my family that is in my generation is partially Puerto Rican. I'm the only fully white one. It makes me sad sometimes haha.

7. I have a cat named George.. he's my baby, and he's the most chill cat you will ever meet. Or not meet. Either way, he's the most chill cat ever.

8. Half the time you think I'm being serious, I'm kidding. Half the time you think I'm kidding, I'm being serious.

9. I've never been to Epcot! Gassssp.

10. I'm not cool enough for 10 facts.. truth.

'Til later! AKA 'Til I actually have something relevant to post :)

Ou sont les toilettes?

I'm going to try for a French language tag though I probably won't get it.. I can comprehend written French very well but as far as speaking goes I'm not so hot. I know the words and everything, I just don't know how to put them into a coherent, grammatically correct sentence. And listening.. oh boy, that's a whole other story haha. People just talk so fast! But I mean the worst they can say is no so we'll see what happens. Definitely going to rehearse/study a lot before I try to get it, though. It'll be fun, though, and if nothing else.. it'll help me pass French haha.

Like I said, I probably won't get it, but really I'd just want it so I could practice my French with people who are fluent in it. If not.. ce n'est pas trop terrible :)

Well they say the sky's the limit, and to me that's really true..

Hm. It's kind of irritating me how the banner doesn't quite fit in the frame (and now it's irritating you, too, right?) I'll have to fix that later. (*fixed :) )

Anyhoo.. I got accepted into the Disney College Program! Woot! Thanks to my friend Katie (whose blog you can find HERE) I found out about the CP before it was too late. I was really nervous because I didn't think I did super fantastically well on my phone interview but I finally got the e-mail telling me I've been accepted into Merchandise! YAY.

Katie is doing Spring, though, so we won't be together for most of the time (unless we get lucky and somehow work together) and she goes down in January. I don't go 'til February 1st so I still have some time to kill. In the meantime I have a huge to-do list. Bleh.

But anyway! Really excited.. hopefully everything will go as planned :)
