DCP Fall Advantage/Spring Extension 2016/2017: Why I Self-Termed

I thought it would be good to post about this, as I know a lot of people who do the program struggle with the decision to self-term. I  will honestly say that I didn’t struggle very much with my decision. That could be because I had already completed a program, but ultimately, I think I knew in my heart that it was time to get away from Disney and go home.

Just a little background info: I started the Disney College Program back in June as a Fall Advantage participant. I was hired as Quick-Service Food and Beverage.  If you read any of my other posts, you would know that I hated my role and my location. Things never got better, they really only got worse, but I loved all the people I worked with, and I had my roommates and other friends to whom I could vent my frustrations. I never thought about going home (except during the summer, like once).

(Short) Korean Drama Review: Cinderella and Four Knights

I’ve been way too busy with so many things that I haven’t been able to write a full review in a long time, although I have finished a couple of dramas. Because I don’t want my opinions on these dramas to go to waste, I decided to just do really short reviews on them.

Ratings out of 10:

Acting: 5

Storyline/plot: 6

Plot Development: 6

Characters: 7

Music: 9

Ending: 9

Watch If: you like high school love stories and cute, predictable rom-coms. If you’re looking for something simple to just turn your mind off to, then I would recommend this drama. It was entertaining, but not the most well-made or executed.

Don’t Watch If: you like dramas that are more complicated or contain deeper romances. If you also like a drama where most or all of the actors are good, I wouldn’t watch this drama because the only two actors that were good were the main ones. All the rest were not very good.

Overall Score: 7

The First Guy to Change My Mind

This is a poem I wrote around two months ago when I had a major crush on one of my friends, who is also one of my coworkers. Now, I don’t have feelings for him anymore. He has a girlfriend, and we’re not really close anymore (not by any fault of mine, but by him being a bad and unreliable friend). But I like this poem, and it captures what I was feeling at the height of my romantic feelings for him. Much of it is dramatic because I figured out later on that the feelings I had for him weren’t very deep at all and may have come as a result of boredom or loneliness, but I still think the poem does a good job of translating my surprise when I figured out I had feelings beyond friendship for him. Some of it is a bit rough, but I did my best. Here it is:

Also, sorry that it’s all mashed together. I put spaces to create sections, but it isn’t translating with WordPress.

Final Fantasy Random Encounter Themes: Ranked

Because I am a “rankaholic” and a “musicaholic” (hooray for made up words), I will be writing a series of blog posts related to music from the Final Fantasy series. So, without further ado, here are the random battle themes ranked from best to worst/not as good (#1 being the best, of course).

1. Battle 1 from Final Fantasy IX

For some of the themes, it’s difficult to choose a number one, but when it comes to random encounter music, Final Fantasy IX’s theme is leagues above the rest. It fully embodies what a perfect FF battle theme should be. It sounds like some of the old stuff, but also has a modern twist to it and better sound quality. While playing the game, I never got tired of hearing this theme, which is saying a lot since each FF game always has A LOT of random encounters. Just listen to this and bask in the glory that which is the FFIX random encounters theme:
