Just wanted to say that I'm glad that you're on the mend and that I SO appreciate your positive posts even when things in life might not always be perfect. You are truly a joy-filled person and it shines through in your posts. I admire the joy and passion with which you embrace your life and am so grateful to be able to live vicariously through your experiences. You have me SO excited for our upcoming trip and on a trip related note-we made our final payment today! It's official BWV here we come! Anyway keep your chin up and don't ever let anyone steal your joy, this world needs more people like you!

Oh my gosh Jess! I just read your recent reports and realized you were feeling sick when I met you that night at Coronado! I'm so sorry that happened to you. It is hard to be sick when you are away from home. I'm glad you are feeling better now.
We are having a great time over here at the Boardwalk now. It is an amazing resort. We had tea at the Grand Floridian today. So much fun! If you haven't done that yet you should definitely try it!
Hang in there and don't let them get you down!
Always planning the next trip home!

WOW! I just read through your posts and now will be following you. We have 2 trips planned in the next few months. The first one is for Memorial Day weekend at AKL and the second one we'll be staying at CSR. I'll have to keep a look out for you. I'm glad you are feeling better. Being sick stinks, especially in Disney.

I am SOOOOO glad to hear that you are feeling better! Bless your heart, I have had mono/flu/tonsilitis ever since February, and I am at school with absolutely NO support system. I can completely emphathize with you, dearie. Being a grown up definitely has its good moments and the omg-what-is-the-point-in-life-I'm-so-miserable moments. Also, some jerk did a hit and run on my car this morning. That was a nice touch to make April 2013 the best month EVER (not).

Also, I can't believe anyone would ever wish "reality" on another person...especially one so joyous and generous as you! Obviously there is no point in even wasting a second of your time on those types of comments. You have too much magic to soak up while you're at DISNEY!

Whew...that was therapeutic just throwing that out there. Trying to keep a lid on all those frustrations and hurts is so hard. I'm so glad you are able to detail your personal experiences so fully for all of us devoted followers. It takes a brave person to do that, and I hope the magic of Disney combined with the magic of Disney friends has been of help to you during the bad times. I know that has been the case for me, even if I can't call WDW my home at the moment.

Something has to be a little off. Nothing is perfect.
I understand that in your world, life is perfect, but just wait, Reality will set in.

Wow!!! That was really obnoxious.

As a mother of two daughters, one of which is only a few years away from high school, I try to instill in my daughters to have a positive attitude and while things may not always go the way they want them, try to see the good in every situation. Plus as a fellow Disney Lover, you are doing what I would have loved to do! Just reading your story here, you seem like a very mature, sensible girl who has a wonderful supportive family and friends! Keep doing what you are doing and pay no attention to people who hate on your positive nature!

Jess, all the time you were sick I was thinking about how your mom must feel being so far away! I don't care how old kids are, we moms always worry about them when they are sick! Glad that you are feeling better now.

I love reading your report! I check every morning to see if there are new updates!

Me, too! My daughter is almost 20, and getting ready to study in London for her fall semester of junior year in college. She is SO excited, but I am SO going to MISS her!!! She also wants to do an internship with Disney and eventually work for them (hopefully!) in casting or show production or guest services. We are really enjoying these detailed reports, since it gives her a little more insight of the jobs and life in Orlando area.

As much as I know she can do it, I will always worry about "my baby"! :-)

Glad you are feeling better, Jess!

So glad that you're feeling better. Also glad you found a 'not-homesick-as-bad-anymore' show. Always did like Full House.

Many things can be the "best ever" and it doesn't have to end when you are young! I have reached a stage in my life where, as pass holders, we go to Disney pretty often. We eat cupcakes, and carrot cake cookies and dole whips and love every minute of it. We have had the best moments during the last eight years watching my daughter practically grow up there.

Life is what you make it. We have our share of stressy hard times. We have mundane times. We have days that are the worst ever. We don't have an unrealistic view of life, we just choose to be happy and fun.

No one should ever be made to feel bad for enjoying life.

I'm glad that reality has set in for you: first, that you are a generally happy, positive and optimistic person who can find joy in the smallest things, as those are qualities that will stand you in good stead in your life. Second, that you are not daft enough to go badmouthing your potential future employer and are clever enough to be honest and savvy in your communications without being rude, cruel or snarky. Keep up the good work.

Jess -

I have lurked for A LONG TIME throughout nearly all of your trip reports and I just love them. I almost did the Disney College Program about 13 years ago when I was 19 but alas my life went a different route. Now I'm a producer for a film studio so I guess I can't complain but it sure is fun seeing "what if" through your eyes.

Also, I don't know what the issue is with some people. When I met my husband years ago he was THE BEST MAN EVER. Every day I wake up with him next to me and my puppy at my feet it is the BEST MORNING EVER. I started reading Game of Thrones and it is seriously the BEST BOOK EVER. I've run a couple of Disney half marathons over the last two years and they are hands down THE BEST EVER. That chocolate mousse sold in EPCOT France is OMG THE YUMMIEST EVER. I hold my husband's hand all the time and it is THE BEST FEELING EVER. I ate some organic carrots the other day and they were nearly THE BEST FOOD EVER but then I ate some organic tomatoes too which were also practically THE BEST THING EVER and so now I am conflicted. Especially when cheese is like THE GREATEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD. Also, I have the MOST AWESOME JOB. EV-AR.

That's my reality. Things have been super awesome and great and fabulous and the best things ever my entire life. Even when they weren't. Because it's all a matter of perspective and outlook and you, my dear, have an amazingly positive amount of both. Don't ever lose that. It is a fabulous quality and will take you far in life.

Look forward to reading more updates!

- Carey
