A year ago today, I checked in to the Disney College Program.
It's been a full year.

I miss the DCP dearly. I miss my job, my roommates, my friends, the magic, the parks, the food, the memories, even the bus rides.

The DCP changed my life forever. My Disney friends have changed me forever.

I'm half sad, and half grateful for today. I would give anything to go back, right now. Drive to the airport and get on a plane, tonight. But at the same time, I look at my life right now, and I'm accomplishing a dream I've had all my life. I'm going to become a nurse!

In honor of today, I'm going to indulge myself, and put my ridiculous childish new dream on here, and in 2 years from now, we'll see if it happens.

June 2013- Go to FL and work to keep my seasonal status
May 2014- Graduate nursing school
June 2014- Go to FL and work to keep my seasonal status
Late 2014- Get a job in a FL hospital and pick up character shifts PRN.

I know it's lofty. I know it's the biggest Peter Pan dream (run away to Neverland, and never grow up). But my inspiration, Walt Disney had the loftiest goal of all, and he accomplished it. So why can't I have a huge, incredible, Monstro the Whale sized dream?

Maybe it won't ever come true.
But I am so grateful to have the ability to have this dream. This goal. This piece of magic that could easily become a part of my life.

Happy one year anniversary, Disney. Thank you for welcoming me into your family, and for letting me stick around. I promise to do you proud.
