Hey there! My name is Kaylyn, I’m nineteen, and I live in upstate New York. I just moved a little north of Saratoga Springs, which is where I lived for the past eight years. Even though I’ve always despised the cold grey winter and am glad to be escaping it, New York has always been my home base, so it feels weird to be leaving for so long.
I applied to the Disney College Program the first day applications were released and got pretty discouraged as I watched everyone else on the internet get in except for me. Everyone else had their roommates set up and I was still frantically refreshing my email. Eventually I just gave up. Three months passed, and on December 19th (what I was told would be the last day for acceptances) I remembered that I had applied and checked my email…nothing. But when I got up the next morning, there it was! Congratulations! I’m going to be working in Merchandise from February 20th to August 10th
I initially started this blog as a Tumblr, which is the platform I’m more comfortable with so if you have one too, feel free to follow me over there: http://main-street-usa.tumblr.com There’s a few tags on the sidebar that will point you to DCP-only posts, if you don’t want to sift through pictures of Snow White. But if you’re my grandpa, this is probably the place for you. I’m just going to cross post, anyway, so you won’t be missing anything.
I’m going to use this blog as a helping hand for myself, as I found out after I was accepted that I could actually acquire six credits through my community college, simply by taking one of the Disney classes offered and writing a few essays. Writing is my strong suit, but my memory sucks, so I’m hoping that by blogging (if I remember) I’ll be able to keep things fresh. Glad to have you along the journey with me!
Kaylyn, I'm not your Grandpa, but he did teach me a few things! Congrats on getting into the Disney Program, I tried in College too, and didn't make it. I look forward to your fascinating insights into "Main Street USA!"
I'M SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!!!!!
