18 days 9 hours and counting down till I leave.

Hi Everyone!!

Well I just posted two new vlogs on my youtube channel I also wanted to post it on here for all of you guys to see. I had to edit the original because the sound was so loud. I'm starting to pack little by little. I have everything that I have to bring down on a list. I'm going to be trying to do a vlog about packing in the next week. I might be able to do it Friday. I have some ideas before I leave for Florida. I'm going to try to post at least 10 vlogs before I go down to Florida. I'm actually going to be going on a trip to an amusement park and I want to try filming on a ride and taking pictures so this will be the trail run. I'm taking my camera and hopefully flip that I'm buying this weekend to Kennywood Park. Another thing that I'm doing is first attempt at packing. Just showing the things I want to bring and then seeing what you guys say or if I should bring more of something. I do have some good vlog ideas before I leave and would love if you guys have any ideas. Even its for when I'm down at Disney. I would love for you guys to suggest stuff for my videos.

So this is Vlog Number 2, it's about a lot of stuff and books that I have been reading to prepare for Disney.

Vlog #3:
I answer some questions that I got from Formspring in this Video.

34 More days and counting

HI Everyone!!
Well I am actually getting real close to leaving for Florida. My mom and I have been starting to go clothes shopping for the program. I bought a lot of Capri and Shorts. I'm a major tomboy so that's basically all that I wear. I'm also trying to decide what I'm going to bring down with me. I have to have something from my two favorite teams. Which are the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pittsburgh Penguins. I have a lot of t-shirt jerseys so I'm bringing all of those.

Well today I began my day working for my cousin. He owns a computer repair company. I have been answering phone calls and messages all day and writing a detailed reports and just being a secretary. I didn't get a chance to work on any computers this morning. We did play left for dead for a little. After lunch time and my cousin telling me he doesn't need me till tonight I went home. I reorganized my room into stuff for Disney and stuff that stays. I'm buying a lot of new stuff for the program because I haven't really went clothes shopping since last year before school.
Currently I am trying to decide what luggage set that I want to buy for Florida. Here I'll give the link for you guys to check it out if you want.

So I'm making my flight reservation. I'm traveling with Southwest Airlines. Southwest Airlines is doing a bagging promotion. Which is going to help me because I have to pack all of my bedding plus everything else in 2 suitcases. You get two bags that can go under the airplane, a carry on, and a personal bag (my purse) My book bag is probably going to my cary on. I have to put my laptop and accessories for everything in their. Or one of the extra bags it depends how much room and how heavy everything is, both of the bags can go only up to 50 pounds and have to be under a certain height of 62 inches. I will hopefully have my Flip camera by then and can do a packing vlog. I plan on getting my Flip camera next Wednesday which is a payday. This weeks is going to my luggage if theirs coupons, plus discount.
Here is my luggage that I am buying here.

I will be continuing the ABC of Disney movies in the next post. I also hopefully will have a Vlog out by the end of this week. Which will be Vlog number 2 edit. Cause the 2nd one got lost when they redid my laptop cause it failed and was still under the manufacturers warranty. I didn't do a vlog Today was very noisy at my house. I also work tomorrow so don't be expecting it then. But I will be updating this more than youtube. My youtube account for my Disney vlog Here

While I'm doing the program I look forward to trying to keep you guys updated especially the ones that are applying now and coming down in the spring. I will pick a day and I will be keeping a Journal of sort of what happened in the day and everything. But I won't give away to much of what goes on in some things so you still have some experiences. I will trying to film some rides with my flip. It depends on the ride if I will film.

So for Now
Have a Magical Day!!

39 More Days

B is for Bubbles!!
Not exactly I love Bubbles I'm like a 5 year old sometimes. I love to blow bubbles and pop them my favorite are candy bubbles. Okay enough about Bubbles but today on ABC Disney Movies is the Letter B

Beauty and The Beast Won First Prize

Plot Summary:Prince Adam was cursed to a beast form by Enchantress who saw no love in his arrogant heart for others. The one way he could break the spell was to learn to love another and earn her love in return before the last petal from his enchanted rose fell, which would bloom until his twenty-first birthday. But who could ever learn to love a beast? Ten years later, Maurice, an inventor from a nearby village, becomes lost in the woods and seeks shelter in the Beast's castle, the Beast imprisons him for trespassing. His daughter Belle, a bookworm who dreams of life outside her provincial village, finds him trapped in the castle and offers her place in his stead. The Beast accepts with a promise she'll remain in the castle forever. In the beginning Belle views him as nothing more than a monster, he views her as difficult and stubborn. But the two soon taste the bitter-sweetness of finding you can change and learning you were wrong.

Year it was made: 1991

Art director Brian McEntee color keyed Belle so that she is the only person in her town who wears blue. This is symbolic of how different she is from everyone else around. Later, she encounters the Beast, another misfit, also wearing blue.

When Beast and Gaston are having their life-or-death struggle on the castle, Gaston yells, "Belle is mine!" Originally he was supposed to say, "Time to die!" but the writer changed it to fit Belle back in the scene.

A Bugs Life came in Second!!

very year, a bunch of grasshoppers come to the anthill and eat what the ants have gathered for them. The "offering", as the ants call the ritual, is a part of their fate. One day in spring, when the offering's preparation has just been finished, Flik, unlike inventor ant, accidentally drops the whole offered seeds into the river. The grasshoppers come and give the ants a second chance to collect food until fall. Flik sets off to find bugs that are willing to fight the grasshoppers (nobody expects him to succeed anyway) and, due to a double misinterpretation, returns with a circus crew, giving everybody new hope. When the misunderstanding finally gets cleared out, there is only little time left for a new plan, which has to work, or else

The two mosquitoes trapped in the light of the bugzapper ("Frank, don't go towards the light!" "I can't help it - it's so beautiful!") are the voices of the co-directors, John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton.

The hand gestures made by Hopper were modeled after gestures made by Steve Jobs.

Well B is over with time to go watch those two movies.

Tomorrow I hope to have my 5 things about me Vlog up. Hi!! I'm Dana and I'm a CP!! Vlog up. And my second Vlog about everything else. It's been so long and very highly overdue since I had no webcam for the past month and a half. Better do it now or never.

List of things I have to do this week and next:
Buy Southwest Gift Cards
Purchase my Ticket
Okay Plans with Liv
Buy Suitcases
Buy More Clothes
Buy more Makeup
Start packing

Hopefully starting to talk to potential roommates to see what they want me to bring with me hopefully it's something small. I can't bring a lot with me at all. I am flying down with one suitcase and my laptop bag and purse.
That's All For Tonight Folks!!

Have A Magical Day!!
