School is Almost Over

I'm sitting in the computer lab on campus working on an essay draft I have due at 3 and I just can't stop thinking about how close the end of the semester is. It makes me very happy to know that I am going to have 3 or so weeks off before I start summer school. Granted I am going to be working during that time, but I really don't care about that because I will be making money.

The end of the semester is killing me though. Right now I am supposed to be working on a critical interpretation essay rough draft that is due for peer editing at 3. The essay is focusing on Shakespeare's Othello and has to include 5 outside sources. It really is not that hard but it is rather time consuming because it has to be 7-8 pages long and a minimum of 2200 words.

After I finish the essay I need to write a speech that has to be 6-8 minutes long about the importance of protecting yourself against skin cancer, and how to avoid it. I am not too worried about the speech because I have personal experience with family members who have had terrible cases of skin cancer. Skin cancer runs on both sides of my family, so you can see I am definitely pro natural skin color and anti excessive tanning. The only thing I need to make sure for my speech is that I don't turn it into a rant about how excessively tanning is killing yourself, but rather make it an educational informative speech about the proper way to protect yourself against skin cancer.

Once I finish these things I am pretty much free and clear for the end of the semester in these two classes. I have the final draft of my essay due next Monday and that is no big deal, and technically after my speech tomorrow I don't have that class anymore.

I am just so ready to go to DISNEY!

Dream Places to Work

I got this idea from another blog and decided it would be fun to do it too. In the fall I am going to be an attractions cast member at Walt Disney World as a part of the Disney College Program. I thought it would be fun to share with y'all the places I would love to work at while in Disney.
First: The Great Movie Ride in Disney Hollywood Studios
Second: The Haunted Mansion in the Magic Kingdom
Third: Kilimanjaro Safari in Animal Kingdom
Fourth: Jungle Cruise in Magic Kingdom
I think any ride at Disney would be great, but these are my top four that I would love to work at. Sadly I have to wait till August to find out exactly where I am going to work, so we will see what happens

My Next Quilting Project

For my next quilt I want to do something simple because I want to be able to finish it in a reasonable amount of time. I was looking at doing some thing like this, it is really simple and I can make it look whatever way I want because I can change up the fabric choices really easily. I am seriously considering doing it with different Disney fabrics. I really like this one: And there are a few more that I like too, I got a gift card to Hobby Lobby for my birthday so I think it is about time for me to go and spend that. I probably should wait till after school gets out so I am not distracted from my studies, but as it is I am distracted by the fact that I am going to Disney in the fall. So we will see what happens =)

woot.com I love you

So tonight I was waiting up to see what Woot, if you don't know what woot is, it is a website that everyday they sell something different at discounted prices. It's cool you should check it out woot.com. Anyway I wanted to see what they would have today and to my surprise it was something fabulous! The Magical Musical of Walt Disney, Original Motion Picture Soundtracks with Full Color Book. They are original from the 70's when they were first released. I then went to sellout woot and bought a record player because I didn't own one. Yes this was probably one of my sillier buying binges but I couldn't help it, it's Disney. Now it is time for me to get a job so I can afford these buying binges.

New Checks

I was in need to checks today, so I decided that there is nothing better than ordering Mickey and Friends checks from Wells Fargo. I am super excited about them, but it's going to take 7-10 business days till I get them and can use them. Here are some pictures of them:

Speech about net neutrality


Currently I am supposed to be working on a speech I am presenting on Tuesday about net neutrality, but instead I have been updating my blog layout and watching The Day After Tomorrow. So I figured that if I wrote a blog about what I should be doing, it would help me finish writing my speech.

Basically the idea of net neutrality is the idea that all internet traffic should be treated equally. For my speech I am arguing in favor of net neutrality mainly because I am in favor of it. There are several well know internet application companies that support it as well. They include: Google, Yahoo!, Ebay and several others. One really great website I found about the subject was SaveTheInternet.com.

So, seriously that's all I have so far. I have a ton of work to do before Tuesday, but I am not too worried. We'll see how it goes.
