First post of 2018 and ohhhh it's a good one!!!!
So last week I went to Disneyland and those of you that know me, know I could live there lol. This was my 7th trip there just to prove that point. But this trip was unlike any other. For starters, I captured some really amazing pictures that I'll post below and on my portfolio page. The highlight of this trip though was the fact that I got to enter Club 33!!!! I'm assuming most of you haven't a clue what this place is or the importance of it. This club was originally designed as a place for Walt Disney himself to entertain guests and business associates, but unfortunately he died before it was opened. Nowadays, the club is somewhat hidden near the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and the only way to enter the club is to be a member which has a waitlist that takes years to get to the top of. Once you become a member, you have to pay an initiation fee anywhere from $25,000-$100,000 and depending on the level of membership you get, you must pay annual fees that are between $12,500-$30,000. CRAZY RIGHT???!!! SO HOW DID WE GET IN? My mom's friend that was with us at the park surprised us with a reservation one night (the company she works for has a membership). I was almost in tears because I was so overwhelmed. For those that don't know me as well, I love anything Disney. I know lots of Disney "secrets" that I may include in another post some other time, but the whole park and idea of Disneyland intrigues me. The dinner was absolutely amazing which included a 5-course meal (HEAVEN!!!). It was an experience like no other.
As I'm starting my spring semester tomorrow, (classes actually got cancelled due to snow *fist pumps*) I plan to have a different perspective. Find happiness in the smallest of things. This kinda goes along with some of my other posts, but it's something I'm serious about. Being happy in Disneyland is a given, I mean how could you NOT be happy in the "Happiest Place on Earth"??? The problem is, being there isn't apart of my everyday life. Most days reality hits me like a huge train. I'm so overwhelmed with school, finding a job, thinking about my future, you name it. I said in my previous post I wanted to remember my priorities, goals, and the bigger picture.... Which is correct, but I don't want to be so caught up wondering and worrying so much about my future that I'm not enjoying my time in life right now. I have to find a good balance, which brings me back to finding happiness in the small things. I know a lot of you are in the same boat as I am right now, STRESSIN, whether you are attending college or not... But I encourage you to do the same. Find the happy. Whether that's eating yummy food (like churros at Disneyland *mouth waters*), playing in the snow with your friends (me tomorrow), or something as simple as waking up every morning. Find that happy and I promise everything else will fall into place :)
Prepare for a ton of pics below!!!
Old entrance to Club 33, there's a new, more secretive one since a lot of people found this one
Fun fact: California Screamin' (rollercoaster) is being re-done right now to be the new Incredibles ride!!!
Think I may just drop out of school and become a Disney princess
Classic "riding the teacups" reaction :)
