HELLO EVERYONE!

I'm SOOOO sorry I haven't updated this TR in awhile. I've been a bit busy the past two weeks with school work and some other stuff and just didn't have time to update. I've also been a lot more tired than usual so that hindered me from allowing extra computer time non-school related. So I wanted to let you know that, as to let you know I haven't forgotten about this PTR.

I also want to mention for those who were reading my April '10 TR and thinking I completed it, well... it isn't. I still had two more updates left, but I guess my absence proved to be the moment for it to be closed. I am amending that at this moment and it will be opened back up soon enough

Now, onto this trip... as of this moment, there has really been not a lot of progress. Nate and I haven't talked in awhile so I don't know how things are going on his end and I haven't been on the Southwest site in awhile, either. It keeps on getting closer and closer to December, the month when I had hoped everything would be booked, so I guess I gotta start cracking the whip now, especially with the payments for my school trip coming my way and Christmas and... yeah, so I don't want to get caught in that when I ask, "So, are we going to book the flight?"

Now, about the school trip, since I'm sure a lot are wondering and I've let it in the air since my last update, but yes, I did end up choosing Quebec as my number one choice, though I don't know if that will be the trip I go on. Manhattan was second of course than the one that goes basically up and down the East Coast, this Amazing Race-esque one and lastly DC. I'm hoping to find out this week or next week since that's when my teachers say they will have it decided by. I'm crossing my fingers they have been doing this when not grading our projects and essays.

Besides that, nothing has really been going on in my life lately. I mean, Homecoming was last week, but being me, I didn't go. I'm not a fan of dances, but maybe next year I'll end up going to them again, since I don't have the urge to go at the moment, unless it's something really big like Prom, but I'm not a Junior so... it's not my thing. But Halloween's around the corner so maybe I'll have some stories from that, though this may be my first year not trick-or-treating... sad isn't it?

Well, that's all that's going on at the moment. I want to tell all my DISFriends going down to the happiest place on Earth for some Not So Scary Halloween festivities to have an awesome time! I'll probably comment on your PTRs soon enough, but this is just in case.

Have A Magical Day!

If you choose Quebec, you will not be disappointed, I promise you that! It is absolutely beautiful!

Glad things are going well and hope even though you've decided not to trick or treat that you'll enjoy Halloween all the same (it's my birthday, you could celebrate that)!

Hope you have a great week hon!

That was my #1 choice so I can't wait to go! Hopefully if I do end up going there, it will snow since I've heard in some past years, the unpredictable weather has hindered the group from doing some activities, but we'll see (:

I really hope so... I'll probably end up just walking through my town's center with my dad unless I have a lot of homework then I'll be home, but who knows. Oh, that's so cool! I wish my birthday was consistently on a holiday I'll totally be celebrating that

TRIPLE MOUNTAIN WHAMMY!

Hello ladies and gents who are hopefully still wandering the sad wasteland that is my PTR. Sorry I haven't updated. I was prepared to update awhile back, but I guess fate had other plans. I think the biggest bump in the road was the freak snow storm that passed through. I was without power for three days and so lost time on catching up on TRs. Along with my phone and iPod ending up in the watch, which stressed me out for awhile, so the reason why I'm updating tonight rather than when I got power back, but I promise the updates will be more frequent after this.

So moving on from my depressing life into updating on the trip. Well... while I thought things were looking up, they are looking down at the moment. My mom keeps on getting mad at me whenever I bring up Disneyland and a trip, saying how it's just not going to happen. I haven't done much of researching and crunching numbers, so maybe that's a reason, but I'm still pushing for the trip. Confidence is key, right?

I'll just continue now with talking about some more Disneyland attractions and I'm guessing if you read above, this post is all about the Triple Mountain Whammy:



WHAM! WHAM! WHAM!

Needed to talk about some Stacey with this, because she says it best right? Well, to make it more simple for people who still don't understand what I'm talking about, I'm talking about... Splash Mountain, Space Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Three classic E-ticket Disney attractions, though very similar to their Florida counterparts I'm very excited to ride them out in Disneyland.

First up, is Splash...



Splash Mountain has to be one of my all-time favorite Disney attractions. I just love water rides and Splash has to be the best. I know, the basic difference is the logs and the theme-ing and songs are a bit different because it isn't in Frontierland, but put in Critter Country. Also, all my friends and I really enjoy making some crazy on-ride photos and splash is probably the best to do it on. We are still planning it since our on-ride photos must be uniquely awesome

Next, is Space...



Space Mountain is probably my favorite Disney attraction. It was my first roller coaster and totally deserves the top spot in my favs. I've heard the DL version is also much better than the WDW version so it will be tons of fun to ride this. Of course, we also have the on-ride photo to add to it. It will be interesting seeing how I enjoy it in the only other Disney park I've been to (:

Lastly, Big Thunder...



BTMRR is probably the Disney ride I've ridden the most. It is such a fun ride and the classics just don't come around as often these days. Sadly, this ride doesn't have on-ride photos, but still I'm excited to ride it. From seeing the pictures and videos of the ride, it does look a bit different and I've heard it's better as well. I can't wait to ride and see if I like it at DL more or less

Yup, so that's basically the update, sorry it wasn't longer. I'll just leave you off with some really cool remix videos of classic Disney movies. These are really cool, so definitely check them out-

Love the update Timmy!! I have been to both WDW and DLR. Being from Southern California, I have been to Disneyland more. Your birthday is exactly two weeks before mine (only I'm a year older than you). One of my close BFFs has been to WDW but only once. The other has never been I am not returning to WDW until 2014 (when I graduate high school).

Thanks Kaitlin! Oh, I'm so jealous, I'm so far away from both, so it's a bit more costly and takes a lot more energy to make these trips happen. Oh wow, another May birthday! WOOT! (: That's really cool your friend has been. Most of my friends have been and my closer friends have been enough to be able to understand what I do when I'm walking around the "World". That's when I hope to go back to WDW, since I graduate in 2014 as well The original plan was it was supposed to be a big DISMeet, but that's kinda fallen through since the people I planned it with, I haven't talked to in awhile. Oh well, maybe it will come back again

You know I love the triple mountain whammy too! The other thing we found weird about the DL version of Splash Mountain is that it seemed much faster than the one in WDW. My dad jokingly referred to it as the "Splash Mountain Speedway." Maybe they've changed it since we were there but it didn't seem to drift along like it does in Florida.

Haha yes, true to any DISer I'm sure (: Oh that's interesting. Log flumes tend to move fast with the actual logs rather than the huge logs, I hope not though. I like to enjoy my Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Ride

Yeah, it was unexpected and was so shocking with the damage, but these storms we've had the past few years have been awful, so we're starting to get used to it. Most things are back to normal except for the fact I was walking through little banks of snow while trick-or-treating tonight and it's FALL! Yikes! And the fact I wasn't trick-or-treating on Halloween. Scary stuff

Sorry to hear about the snowstorm. I live near the beach so I don't have to worry about it.

It's okay, it's gone now, so it's all good and also it's really fun watching all the snow come down for some reason, though this time it was just strange lol

My class president from last year has never been to WDW She and I talked about Disney and asked me about the food on the Disney Cruise. I'm now her WDW teacher.
