3 Great Shots

NO, I’m not talking about alcohol (though I did talk about what fun it is to drink at Epcot legally).

What I am talking about is my journey through Texas and Louisiana, where everyone’s either a jerk or they’re stopping traffic cause some trucks pulled to the side (no…literally…that’s what happened). 

Despite these setbacks, I decided to put on my photographer’s hat and take some pictures, and since there’s only 3 days left until the College Program starts, I figured I’d share 3 picture-esque pictures. 

Starting with:


You saw it here first, folks. Now New Orleans is nothing short of unique, but it’s a great happenstance when I’ll be in a galaxy far, far away very soon. (Also ties in to my first vlog a few days ago. Click here to see it.)


If you don’t know what beignets are, then what are you doing with your life? That’s actually a very good question for me to ask myself, since I didn’t try beignets until this morning. So the answer to that question would be…I don’t know.


This picture was actually taken yesterday, en route to NOLA. It’s also probably one of the best pictures I’ve ever taken, and one of my favorites, simply because it’s so simple. And also, that sunset.

#4 Pick and 1 Day Late!

Yesterday, I woke up at 3:00 in the morning to board a 6:00 flight which I almost missed. Then my mom and I had to drive from Austin, TX to New Orleans, LA and we finally made it at around 8:00 at night. I know. I missed a day of blogging.


However, I am back, and relaxing with a slushee of rum, Everclear, and some other liquor, before we hit the road again tomorrow morning at around 8:00 am. Don’t try that at home kids, I am a professional. 

And since I finally got my itinerary today, I decided to share an important announcement which fits the 4 days left theme (that I didn’t do yesterday) to make up for lost time. 


As you guys no doubt recall, I did a list about 6 days ago that listed my Top 10 places of where I wanted to work (forgive me for not including Be Our Guest, I have sinned). Click here if you want to read it as a refresher before you continue with this post.

Anyways, after much anticipation and waiting, I got my itinerary and found out I am to work at ‘Ohana, which was #4 on my list!


It’s going to be a major Hawaiian roller coaster ride for me! 
Have you worked at ‘Ohana before? Or have you eaten there before? What was it like? Let me know on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or on the Contacts page above! 

5 Golden Interview Pointers!

design-29

Hello, everybody, and welcome to T-minus 5 days from my check-in to one of the most prestigious internships in America!


Hopefully, I’ll get my itinerary Thursday, and when I do, I’ll find out not only where I’m living, but where I’m working, both of which I’m super excited about! 

For today, though, a little birdy told me that applications for Fall 2017 are open, so I figured I would share my experience with the application/interview process in 5 basic pointers.

1.

Hakuna Matata. Yeah, it’s as basic as that. Don’t worry about what may or may not happen. If this is your first time applying, you’re probably not going to make it. Most applicants don’t make it until their second or third time applying. For me, it was my second time, and it was actually on a whim. I wasn’t planning on interning at Disney this semester, but it happened. The last thing you want to do is panic or stress. This may be a fantastic opportunity but it isn’t worth your mental health. So relax and Hakuna Matata.

2.

Do your research. I cannot stress over this one (and #1) enough. The more you know, the more prepared you’ll be, and the more prepared you’ll be, the greater the odds of your getting in. Case in point: when I was asked to complete the web-based interview, I looked up what to look for and what to do and I learned two things: one, that you need to be consistent with your answers and not just pick randomly, and two, use “extreme” answers often. Not for every question, but often. I took their advice and, within 24 hours of completing the web-based interview, I was asked to sign up for the phone interview.

3.

Smile! You are a beautiful specimen of a human being, and you deserve to let your light show. Even when you’re on the phone with your interviewer, he/she can tell if you’re happy to be there, or if you just want the paycheck. Smiling not only helps your chances, it also helps you feel better. 

4.

If you don’t know how to improvise, learn how to do it. Improvising is basically having the ability to think on your feet and being able to own the situation regardless. When I was on my phone interview, my interviewer asked me about a time when a customer was being unruly. Unfortunately, I couldn’t recall such a time (though I know for a fact that something like that happened), but I was able to recall a time when a coworker was being unruly and, since I wrote it down in my interview guide, I was able to improvise and use my interview guide to answer the question differently.

(Psst! Here’s the interview guide I used! Very descriptive and extremely helpful!)

5.

Have fun! You’re applying to work at the most magical place on Earth! Regardless of whether you make it, what role you’ll get, or where you’ll work, you’ll be part of the dream to make the most magical memories of a lifetime. And if you don’t make it this semester, there’s always next semester. And the semester after that. You get the idea.

6. MORE. DAYS!!!


Still have yet to get my itinerary (grr…) but that’s okay, because at least I don’t have to wait for booze!


I’m driving down to Orlando from Austin with my mom on Thursday, and our plans are to enjoy an evening on Epcot the night before check-in. And of course, being 21, what better way to enjoy Epcot than to drink around the world? Here are the Top 6 alcoholic areas from Epcot that we have to try at least once:

Norway 🇳🇴 

Compared to other areas, Norway doesn’t offer as much alcohol-wise, unless it’s winter and you need some caffeine on the side with your alcohol! It’s going to be a long day for me, so I’ll need some delicious Viking Coffee to wake me up and oh by the way not miss out on the booze.

Germany 🇩🇪 


Some people prefer the dark German stout beers, but I’ve always been more of a light fruity beer person myself. Enter Schofferhoffer, the GRAPEFRUIT beer that is delicious as well as alcohol-licious! Not to mention Germany is the home of so many notable liquors, it would be an extreme disservice not to stop by!

Italy 🇮🇹 


Italy is the home of amaretto, limoncello, and strega, to name a few. So, how can we not visit? Not to mention the Rococco architecture of the Italian buildings are breathtaking, and among my favorite architecture designs of all time. Better yet, there’s a hilarious performance right in the middle of the square. So we get wine and a show!

Japan 🇯🇵 


Sake. ‘Nuff said.
France  🇫🇷 

Sure, France has wine, but last I heard the alcoholic slushes are the perfect treat in the Florida heat, and especially since the Viking Coffee would wear out by this point, I’d need all the energy I can get. 

And last, but certainly not least…

United Kingdom 🇬🇧 


The crown jewel of Epcot, the triumph of the United Kingdom, and my personal favorite Epcot restaurant: the Rose & Crown Pub! What doesn’t this place have – they’ve got beer, wine, food, and mixed pints for days. It’s the ideal end to Drinking Around the World and the perfect end to a night to remember before checking in to the College Program.

What are your favorite places to drink at Epcot?
