I have once again immersed myself into the blogger nation after just about a months hiatus, you more than likely have not missed my absence but boy have I missed you. Besides the mushy stuff there's a Disney rumor that you may or may not know that has been zooming around my noodle for some time now. How does a free suite at any Disney World or Land Hotel sound? Well according too many there is speculation that this might be true. Just read for yourself:

"It's easy! Just go to the concierge desk in any of the three Disneyland Resort hotels, write the pass-phrase on a piece of paper, and hand it to the cast member. You will be given a free suite for up to a week, and all of your room-service and other in-room charges will be waived, as will the cost of meals and park-admission media charged to your room.
Be forewarned that the use of an invalid or expired pass-phrase can get you in serious trouble -- ranging from simply being ejected to having yourself and your family banned from Disney property for five generations. "

Once it gets to the five generations part, it begins to sound a little fictitious, and the source I took it from is pretty hoakey as well but I keep stumbling upon it all over the it makes me wonder. I'm leaning towards the "nothing in life is free" but people can be kicking back in their free suites laughing at my naive idiocy, well if you ever figure it out or if you've done it before, wont you let me know?

I just gave birth to a TUMBLR!!!! So I have been sucked into the tumbling community along with the zillions of networking sites that we're all apart of and I'm loving it! So I encourage that you do the same, I promise you'll love it. So thanks Jazz for the recommendation! So check it out, if you will it's quite addicting!

In closing I'd like to leave you with a D.Duck inspired look I threw together, not my best work but hopefully you find it visually appealing. Thanks for reading & don't forget to follow :)

Well, well, well. After a month long wait I got a call from Florida and Kristy (the recruiter) left me a message. Luckily I wasn't too surprised since I've been lurking the entertainment discussion board (like all creepy people should) I knew she was going to ask me to switch to Fall Advantage, which would be good news to some but it is just not apart of my plan and something I have no desire to do but I still had hope that she would suggest something else. So after a bit of phone tag we got in touch with each other and of course suggested that i make the switch, she gave me an hour to make the choice and unfortunately I declined, which sucked. But Fall Advantage wasn't what I planned or wanted. At the time I thought I couldn't do it because of the classes I has to take this summer but that ended up not working out, which feels like life is grabbing me by the nape of my neck and grinding my face against a jagged brick wall. But hey it happens, If its meant to be I'll get another chance one day, maybe I'll audition and extend my program. Well now I'm definitely stuck selling turkey legs from a cart just around the river bend from tomorrow land. She did say there was a small chance that something would change but knowing my luck the chances of that are zero to nonexistent. But I've accepted it, moved on and am focused on the now as well as the near future. Well with all that said and done this entry would not be complete without a CONGRATULATIONS to those that did accept their entertainment roles and to those that just generally made it into the program. Well now that the month of May is upon us we can all celebrate the end of everyone's application process and just look forward to our future lives at Disney World.

Before I move on

HEY YOU! Lets get a little closer, here's 10 self evident truths I promise you don't yet know about me.

dos.I might be the only one who loves "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"
tres.Yeah that's right i still watch Degrassi
quatro.In my past life i was a wizard
cinco.I desperately want to be apart of a flash mob(ask old wise man google)
seis.I love musical theater,now get off my back!
siete.This,this & this make me shed tears of joy due to uncontrollable laughter almost every time. And they're not even that comical but it gets me every time without fail.
ocho.Is fascinated by white supremacists and national socialists, quite ironic.
nueve.I sometimes gets carded for rated rated R movies, because I apparently look like a twelve year old.RIDICULOUS!
dies.Once I offered food to a homeless man that turned out NOT to be homeless, just an avid recyler looking in dumpsters for recyclables. Ouch.

Well I've bored you quite enough, don't you think? TTFN:)

So I'm obviously not the best blog updater but if you can look past all that I can begin to tell you about my AUDITION EXPERIENCE!!! Yes I had my audition on March 26 in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. I went with my trustee partner in crime Jazmine, it took about three hours but we arrived right on time. Immediately upon arriving into the fairly difficult to find building we met the amazing new addition to our cool club Andy :). Surprisingly I was expecting maybe thirty to forty people but there were about 120 hopefuls which I must admit was mildly intimidating, since I haven't danced in years. We took off our shoes to get measured and I am very sad to announce that my Disney height is 61 inches :( which in the real world would be 5'1. And all these years I thought I left 5'1 behind in the 6th grade. I'm not too concerned about that since everyone there also thought there were a few minor inches knocked from their height as well. After all that preliminary stuff it was on to the first combination which was fairly easy and very fun! After making the first (very large)cut we moved on to another combination which was longer and more difficult but before we performed that combination we did a pantomime/improvisational skit which involved meeting your favorite Disney character. That entire process I just described to you is most definitely easier said than done. I feel like I did an "okay" job therefore I am not expecting a congratulations email anytime soon...or ever. The wait time for a response is 3-4 weeks which coincides with the interview response time. But all in all it was most definitely a fun process and will most definitely do it again in six months. The advice I can give to any prospective auditioners is most definitely to smile as if that's the only expression you know how to make, even if you are having the toughest time do not by any circumstances let that show on your face. Also be sure to wear comfortable shoes! I brought jazz shoes and ballet slippers and from first hand experience I can tell you NOT to wear ballet slippers, yes you can better see the point and arch of your foot but your feet will not thank you the next day, WILL NOT! If you are wondering what to wear here's a little help as to what I saw there. A lot of people wore tights with spanks and some even wore leotards. For the guys I saw a lot of shorts with tight t-shirts and dance shoes. I also advise that you DO bring a head shot, they do take a photo of you but I think it would give you an extra nudge if they have a photo of you all done up and looking your best. Just be sure to bring your A game and even if it doesn't work out at least you would have met some great people and learned some interesting dance moves :) I wish you thee best of luck! !!!

We'll I'm back with a vengeance! I've turned 19 during my short hiatus and I must admit
just the other day I realized how GREAT Disney channel original movies used to be, key phrase USED TO BE. Here is a list of my old favorites, lets see if you remember.
Favorite DCOM's before they got lame

Hocus Pocus
More than 300 years ago, 3 witches were sentenced to die in Salem, Massachusetts and a boy was turned into a cat (a black cat, naturally). Now it's Halloween, and the witches (who fly on [I kid you not] vacuum cleaners) are back. This time, they've got their eyes on immortal life and have turned their wrath on trick-or-treaters and it's up to the 300-year-old cat to save the day.
Now did you light the black flame candle?

Three 12-year-old kids discover a mummy in the basement of a "dead" man's house. It comes alive due to the conjunction of the moonlight during that time of the month. They are scared of him at first, but with time discover he is friendly, if clumsy and confused.
The kids name the mummy Harold, and decide he will temporarily take up residence in one kid's bedroom. After paying a visit to their Halloween-obsessed friend, they discover that if the mummy is not put back in his coffin before midnight on All Hallow's Eve, the mummy will cease to exist.

Susie Q
Susie Q was going to a dance one night when she and her boyfriend got into a car crash and fell off a bridge. Years later, a teenager named Zach Sands moves into Susie's old house. Zach's father died in a car accident so his family is his mother and his sister, Penny Sands. One night, Zach sees Susie, and she discovers the he can see her. Then Susie explains to Zach, there is a Heaven. But after death people are sent back to Earth to help their families. And sometimes when they can't help by themselves, they get special help. And that is why Zach can see her. So that he could help her family. In fact, Zach is the only one who can see Susie. And on the way, Zach falls in love with Susie. Is their love divine?

Don't Look Under the Bed
Thirteen-year-old Frances McCausland has always approached life with logic and reason, rejecting all childhood tendencies in herself and those around her. When someone starts playing destructive pranks in her small community, all evidence points to Frances as the culprit. Upon further investigation, Frances discovers she is actually being framed by a mischievous "Boogeyman" who resides under her bed. Desperate to solve the mystery, Frances reluctantly enlists the help of Larry Houdini, her little brother's imaginary friend. Contrary to Frances' rational nature, Larry must teach her to rely on her imagination in order to defeat the Boogeyman, clear her name and save the town.

Get a Clue
"Get a Clue" follows the exploits of a young girl, Lexy, who is a privileged twelve year old who has spent her entire life amongst the wealthy and elite of Manhattan. Clad in Prada, she prides herself on her ability to get the scoop and serve it up in her school's gossip column. When a photo she has taken of her teachers is published in the city's daily paper, things start getting weird. A teacher goes missing and she along with her working class family friend, Jack, set out to solve the mystery. What follows is an action-packed adventure laced with mystery and drama.

Stepsister from planet weird
In this comic sci-fi story based on the popular novel for young people by Francess Lantz, an alien from another world finds his way to the planet Earth with his 12-year-old daughter in tow. As the visitors try to adjust to the ways of this world, Dad meets and marries a single mother, and now his daughter not only has to learn how to act like an Earthling 24 hours a day, but she suddenly has to deal with her new step-siblings. Produced for The Disney Channel, Stepsister from Planet Weird stars Courtnee_Draper, Khrystyne_Haje, and Tamara Hope. Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
With all that said I would like to give an honorable mention to Up Up and away, Ally Cat Strike and Model Behavior.
I should also admit how tired and annoyed I was of the constant airing and overplaying of Mighty Joe young and Quints!

Before I forget :)
