Things I Love Thursday

"No matter what kind of week you have, there's always an optimistic side." -me
This is why I love doing TILT.

God, and Him being strong in my weak moments.
Seeing old friends.
Winning laundry detergent.
Free stuff at Target.
Getting my vehicle fixed.
Having a blast with the employee's at work.
Sleeping in.
Money showing up in my account when I need a few extra bucks, thanks God.
Feeling good about myself cause I turned in a lost credit card. Then receiving a thank you call and an offer for
Starbucks in appreciation.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries!
The fact that I'll be able to spend the weekend back home seeing the people I love the most.
School is starting this Monday! Boy am I excited!

Alrighty, well I am off to bed now. Tomorrow I work the am shift, and it's off to Arcadia! Yay!
Thank You for reading my blog! Until next time!
Love you all,

Things I Love Thursday/Friday

I am late getting home tonight, so even though it is still my Thursday night, it is officially Friday. Oh well, here are the things I loved about my week!
*First off, I feel like this week has dragged on so slow. This could be because I am wishing for time to fly so I can start school, or cause I have been working the pm shifts at work and the business has been throughely slow. Either way, I'm thankful it's Thursday! Why? Cause this Thursday is my Friday! I have Friday and Saturday off work. I am completely thrilled! I have not had a Saturday off since I started working here. Yay!
This upcoming Saturday will also be the two month mark of working at the Hyatt. Yay!
*For those of you who know me pretty well you know I am a fan of Julian Smith on youtube.He often talks about or features his cat, Scout in videos. This week "Scout" created a Twitter account.

*Getting recognition from a manager on what quality of customer service? Smiling at every guest, of course. I would. Haha.
*Getting to hang out with coworkers at the beach on my day off.
*Pami is moving back to Orlando. Tomorrow!Today!
*Laughing, and how great it feels to be able to laugh with people, whether they are your friends or not!

*Getting to know my roommate more, and loving to see how God really worked out a great situation for me in Orlando.
*The Kit to my Kat is back in Orlando too!
*Knowing you are safe not because of cops or security, but because of God.
*Sleep! Speaking of, I am off to bed now.

Thanks for reading my blog. I apologize that the majority of my blog postings have been TILT. I hope to gather some blog ideas I have and create them for mid-week postings.
Love you all,

Things I Love Thursday

Ello Friends,

It is Thursday again!
Lets get this started...

Ballerina Project.
If you know anything about me, you will understand why I love this!
If you don't know anything about me, well... now you do. Dance is important to me, I love every aspect of the art, and the fact that a city has a project featuring dance within the city is just, well beautiful to say the least.

A coworker and I were discussing religion and such, and he made the joke that he is apart of Jews for Jesus. I know, it is silly. Though this made my laugh for probably five minutes straight. I love good jokes.

Although I have yet to actually use this feature in Orlando, I love that I know it is available if I need it.
Grub Taxi. Grub Taxi is a place you go online or call to have food delivered from restaurants that do not have delivery. Talk about a genius idea! No more delivery options of just pizza and Chinese!

A white dress. Today I found a very beautiful white dress at khols for very inexpensive. I have been wanting a casual yet somewhat dressy white dress for some time now. I am super excited, though I am not sure where I will wear this dress. Possibly school?

Speaking of school!!! Today I got my student ID and my books. One book in particular: Stage Lighting! School is just seventeen days away! Woot!

Facial's. Today I got to hang out with one of my new Orlando friends, yay! Something she is very talented in is giving facials. She took a course during high school that taught her all she needed to know, so tonight I received my first facial. It was great!

Nutella Crapes. Tonight me and my new Orlando friend went to IHOP for dinner. I got crapes, which came as an option to have nutella with them! Yum! For those of you who know nothing about Nutella, here.

Snickers. Many times candy companies put codes on the inside of the wrapper's in order to win cool prizes or enter contests. Though Snickers is changing it up a bit. I am so proud of what they're doing! There's a code on the inside of the wrapper that you can either enter online, or text the code to the number given. Instead of you winning something, you're donating a meal to someone in need through "Feeding America." How awesome is that! Go Snickers!

Uhm... Tomorrow I am trying out a florida east coast beach. I am extremely excited to get some sun! Not only cause I get to hang out with a fun coworked, but also to even out the tan on my right arm, plus get rid of my watch tan mark on my left wrist. Haha.

Alrighty, well good night everyone. Have a pleasant and blessed Friday/weekend.
Till next time...
Love you all,

With Him

I won't go into too much detail about what this is portraying since it is pretty obvious.
However, I will ask you a question, "When you pray with Jesus/God do you give him the time to respond?"
 When I think about praying, I think about how I'm praying with Him, not just to Him. This video is a great example of someone praying to Jesus/God. When you're talking to someone you're not really expecting a response. So next time you pray, talk with God, and expect His response.

Thanks for reading my blog,
Love you all,

Things I Love Thursday

Or TILT as I like to refer it to. I know, It's actually actually Friday right now. Though I worked a double shift today at work and was unable to make it home in time to write this blog on time. My apologies.

Alrighty, my first thing is something that I have been forgetting to write about on TILT for weeks! I recently found out about a new feature to Disney. I have never been so excited for something Disney related.
I will give you a link, please watch it. Disney World of Color. This new feature is added to Disney Land in California. It's a show with water fountains, music, video projections of Disney clips, and.... *drum rolll please* LIGHTS!!! Ahhhh!!! You have no idea how bad I would not only LOVE to go see this show, but also one day work with it. Talk about an epic job. Just sayin'.

I start school in three and a half weeks, and I looked up my book prices online and found out they're super inexpensive. Which is kind of nice since I'm used to paying about one hundred dollars per book, now my most expensive book was $49, and my least expensive one was $6. Woot!

Speaking of school. Valencia is hosting a poetry/writing/art/photography contest. I entered a photo, and I plan on entering a poem. Although I have been having a tough time figuring out which poem to enter, even though I can enter multiple, I believe that if my writings are good I only need one to win. Maybe anyway.

At work we server desserts on a dessert cart. Some of them are in mason jars. A carrot cake in a mini mason jar, and a lemon meringue pie in a mason jar. I though that was quite creative of them, and wanted to share. I would love to take that idea if I ever hosted a party and felt like making fancy stuff for it. So if you'd like to take that idea too, you can. Here's a sample photo of what I'm referring to: Mason Jar Dessert. You can also use other things like wine or cocktail drink glasses with the same idea.

The weather this week has been much more bearable outside. Actually, it has been quite lovely, almost enough to make me want to take a walk around the neighborhood. Well, if I felt completely safe by myself of course, hypothetically. haha.

Sun Pass, and being able to easily drive through a toll area without having to wait in a terribly long line. Also, finding out that the tolls roads make my trip from work only twenty minutes, max. Rather than forty minutes to an hour, depending on traffic.

Working a ton, cause I need the hours. Yay!

Wednesday was the Orlando International Airport Hyatt's 18th Birthday! It was wonderful cause they were serving New York Strip Steak in the cafeteria. It made my week!

Hearing a song and being inspired to write a blog. You can look forward to that one, it will have something to do with Beauty.

Monday I made homemade macaroni and cheese. It was pretty great. Though I do have to mention that the recipe called for plain yogurt, and I only had vanilla. Note to self: never substitute this ever again. Haha.

Olive Garden's soup, salad, and bread stick lunch deal. So smart, and so yummy!

There's this frozen yogurt place I tried this last Monday called iKiwi, located in the UCF area. It's like a frozen yogurt buffet. You get your own frozen yogurt, add as much or as little toppings as you would like, then they weigh it to see how much it cost. If you're ever in the area, try iKiwi!

Friends. Old Friends, Best Friends, New Friends, Work Friends. I love them all.

Alright, I hope you all have a wonderful Friday and weekend in general.
Thank you for reading my blog. I appreciate it tons and tons!
Love you all,

It's less than an hour till Thursday, and it has come all too quickly this week.
A long time ago, when I got my first job. Junior Year, 2007. I was telling a friend about my new job and he said congratulations. Though he also mentioned that time flies when you have a job. I've remembered this ever since he told me. Why? Possibly because it's very true. When you get a job you find out your schedule, you count down the days until pay day, and you try to squeeze your social schedule within the free time you're given. I honestly feel like my life has just absolutely flown by since I started working. When I was in High School I was perfectly okay with that because I was not much of a fan of my school. Though now life has flown by still and even though I am only nineteen and a lot of people I know are older than me, I feel old. haha.

Anyway, on other terms. God is working thoroughly through me. I've been able to rely on Him more than ever, especially since I do not have as much of a social life since moving to Orlando. This I believe is a good thing for me, it has been sort of a sabbatical for me. Which, if you knew me prior to Orlando, you know I am a pretty hard core busy bee. I know pursuing Production Design is the major part of God's plan for my life. Though trying to figure out His plans for me other than school have been quite confusing. I know each friend I've had has always been there for a reason, whether they're apart of my life for a season, or they're one of my friends forever. I suppose you could say I have been over analyzing different situations I have encountered here because I am on my own and it is up to me and only me to figure out the plans for my life that God has for me. It is quite exciting, though also scary, thinking about the experiences I will be enduring now that I am independent. And exciting to see what more God has planned for me, cause the majority of things here have been absolutely wonderful. I am thankful for all God has blessed me with. =]

Thanks for reading my blog, check out tomorrow for TILT!
