I just wanted to post a video that I randomly found one day that makes me so excited to apply for the Walt Disney World College Program. The music mix for this video is awesome and how could it NOT make someone pumped to apply? I hope you all enjoy this video:
This makes me SO excited to apply, however for the spring session I still have to wait til September I think before the applications are available! I still don't even know if I will be able to do the Spring session because I want to try to graduate next spring..but who knows what God has in plan for me. Here's my thoughts on each of the sessions. I want to do Advantage, just not sure which!
Spring Advantage '11
Pro: I would be in Disney for my birthday
Con: I also want to try to Graduate from UK by next spring...
Pro: I would be at home for the holidays & important occasions if I did Spring instead of Fall (Halloween, my parents birthdays, Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Years...)
Pro: If I graduated in the Spring, my parents would be able to stop paying college tuition I believe...
Pro: I would miss most of the cold weather/snow in Kentucky if I was accepted and got to go to Florida!
Con: If I got accepted for the SA '11, I would only have a semester with 3 other girls that I've been really excited to live with next year AND I'd have to find someone that they could live with that would take over my portion of the lease! (Dang leases...)
Random thought: I just wanted to apply for the Spring as a practice to see if I could get in for Fall 2011 when it counts (Fall Advantage is what my heart is really set on right now...)
Pro/Con: My current roommate and her younger sister are planning to apply for the Spring sessions, not sure if they are planning to do the advantage session, but these are two more people that I would be up against. It's a con because it's like I don't want them to do it before me which is silly, but also if we got it for the same session, I really wouldn't want to live with them (hence why I'm moving in with 3 other girls that I used to be in the sorority with :)...)
So that's spring thoughts, next is my Fall list.
Fall Advantage '11
Pro: I would hopefully be a graduate of UK when I applied.
Con: I would miss the holidays at home & my parents birthdays.
Pro: Discounted tickets for family, so they could come visit :)
Pro: Holidays at Disney World? I've been there for New Years 2000 and let me just say, it's an awesome experience! (Granted I was 12...lol)
Pro: My lease would be up by then and I would be able to live with Kelsey, Audrey, & Andrea for a full school year :)
Pro: I would have another year of UK Basketball & Football where I could use my student discount to go to the games (haha yes I love sports at my school!)
Thought to above pro: I love sports at my school, but what if I applied for spring just for practice, got in, and had to decline because I decided to wait? What would I do? My parents pay for my college, so how would it affect them? What if I DIDN'T go for SA '11 and got REJECTED for FA '11? That would devastate me..
I'm sure I will think of more things, but for now these are my big concerns. I'm going to talk to my advisor about it when I talk about registering for classes, and hopefully they can provide me with some insight and advice. I'm also going to pray about it, because while I know I want to do this, does God want me to?
So God, I know you can speak to me, I'm opening my heart, what should I do? Do you even want me to do this? I don't think you would have this opportunity pop up again in my life after I kind of put it on the back burner my first 3 years of college.
That's all for tonight, as a UK fan I'm sad that Duke won the NCAA Men's National Basketball Championship over Butler, especially since Butler played their hearts out. I believe they should have won. But I'm going to sign off now and go get some rest.
Have a very Magical Day & A Very Merry Unbirthday if it's not your birthday!! =)
