Back to Reality

BLOG

Hi, my name is Lena, and you’re no longer watching Disney Channel! Welcome back to the wonderful world of reality, where wearing mouse ears to hide a bad hair day is no longer sticking to the status quo. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally done with the wildest experience I’ve gone through so far.

For those of you unaware, I just finished a 5 month internship at Walt Disney World, where I spent 6 days a week selling bubble wands in front of the castle, and 7 days a week running through all the emotions in the book. It was overall an amazingly unique experience, but I’m still catching up on sleep, and I’ve been gone for 3 weeks.

But all good things must come to an end, so I am back at UCF starting my third semester here, taking a detox from all things Disney. I am finally all settled into my “big girl apartment” and I couldn’t be happier with how things turned out, (so happy that I signed a lease to stay here for at least 17 more months).

Classes are back in full swing and being able to structure my day out and learn again feels so good. (I’m saying this now, but check up on me during midterms when I have 20 credits worth of classes to study for and see if the sanity remains). I am finally taking classes within my major on Rosen campus, which is super exciting. I get to split my week up and spend two days at each campus, so it’s keeping me on my toes.

All of my clubs and organizations are starting back up this week, and it feels so good to get back involved with the activities that helped me fall in love with UCF to begin with. I even started dancing again and am taking a weekly barre class so I can get those #gainz.

All in all, it’s been a busy month ending one chapter and diving into the next, but it’s gonna be a good year, and bringing back my blog will solidify that. I might not be riding rollercoasters everyday anymore, but here’s where I insert a cheesy quote about getting on the wild ride that is life. Yeah I went there, and I’m never getting off.
