So, finally- I have time and access to internet simultaneously!!
I didn't have to go to work today- HUGE news for me because I've been having all of my shifts from 6:00-2:30 in the morning at the Emporium. That means that in the morning, I do project stuff for about two hours and then go straight back to sleep so I can be conscious during my laaaate/early shift at WDW.
I woke up around 12noon this morning and called Mama and made reservations for her and Daddy and Travis to stay at Disney's Boardwalk Inn at the end of July. I don't think I've been this excited for anyone's birthday except mine .... which I am grateful for because I may finally be losing some of my selfishness...? hope so..
Well, anyways.. My friend on Project- Gina- needed to go to work at 5:00 and I was planning on going anyways, so we rode together to the Magic Kingdom. Many secret things happened next, so I will fast forward to the part where I was on Main Street. I wandered around for a while and stopped by City Hall. I wanted to visit the Emporium to say hey to some co-workers and possibly buy a watch. Cell phones don't exsist during the time period in which I work, plus they're not allowed "on stage." Time telling is a necessity.
None of them recognized me at first because my hair was down and I was out of the Emporium costume dress. I got to talk with Gabriella for like 20 minutes and we had an awesome conversation. I told her about the plans I had been making all day for Travis's birthday and how I wanted it to be soooooooooo cool. I said something about how I used to pick on him and how he just would relentlessly forgive me every time and that he always just had a lot of grace in his personality. And she said, "Yeah, isn't it awesome how Jesus forgives us for everything we've done, and that we're able to forgive other people?" And I was (in my head) like: AHHHHHH!
So realized that each other was a Christian and hugged and I told her that our group does Bible studies a few times a week and she said she definitely wants to be there!
Later, I found Romeo and we started figuring out a time to hang out and talk about stories. He's a film student in NYC and we've decided to collaborate this summer. We don't know what direction we want to go in yet, but we're aiming for storytelling+ truth and beauty.
I went drawing in the Magic Kingdom for the rest of the evening. It was wonderful. I was sitting on a park bench in front of the Dreams Come True show waiting for people to stand in front of me. I think I fell asleep once or twice in about a 4 hour period of time. (Who has the chane to do that in Disney?)
As soon as I can get access to a scanner or have time to take pictures, I'll post some sketchbook stuff. They're getting better, I think.

The trail of smoke above the blue-clad, knowledge-seeking field trippers was left behind today from NASA's Shuttle, Discovery. Aboard was Buzz Lightyear -of Star Command-!
I was drawing out behind Casey's again, (Now, I can draw decent life sketches in the time it takes to eat a hot dog!) and that's when I remembered the news had been talking about the partnership between Disney and NASA for the Space Ranger Educational Program.
