    I'm off to Disney World!

    I've been accepted to return to Walt Disney World for a second time to earn, learn, and live. In May 2004, I arrived in Florida to be a prt of the College Program. Living in Disney housing and working in the Magic Kingdom. My program was done in January 2005 where I did not decide to extend. I applied for an Advanced Internship for the summer but was declined an invitation. In November 2005 I once again attended a presentation, traveling from Fitchburg to Salem, MA through a storm in the passenger's seat of a freind's car. (My bicycle wouldn't have gotten me too far...LOL)
    Just last week, I received my offer in the mail. I responded. I've sent my deposit. They received it. I'm to arrive in Orlando and check-in on January 16th. Ironic, one of the top rated reality shows is to premiere (which I may be apart of) the day I arrive in the world's Number 1 vactaion spot.
    Last year when I lived in Orlando, I auditioned for American Idol. You can read the entire experiance here...
    "Go back to Disney." That was Paula Abdul's final remark and final comment from the judges to me. I did. I finished my program, went back to Massachusetts and took the Electronic Media Operations and Management class for a second time, already having an Associates Degree in Broadcasting and Telecommunications 3 years earlier.
    The summer came, and the Idol universe clashed with mine. The producers remembered who I was and what I did. I was sent through to the judges for a second time. Why? Why did Nigel Lythgoe send me through? Did he already have it in mind for me to be cut? Did he think I had true potential to be in Hollywood?
    Disney remembers my AI encounter. The producers wanted to film me and another contestant, Dezmond Meeks, at our housing and our work location in the parks. Disney said no. They filmed Dezi somewhere else. They never filmed me.
    Now, I'm going back. As an Operations Cast Member.
    I was asked in my confession if I think the judges made a mistake in not choosing me to go to Hollywood. Yes. Because now I'm Mickey's bitch. 19 Entertainmnet just handed a franchise to Disney...
