THE official Congratulations Email!
I got back from class around 10:15, unpacked my things, and per usual routine of opening my computer, I checked my dashboard. I was so surprised when I saw the Congratulations email link! It still said “In Progress” but I knew I got it and the email was on its way. Actually, it was there I just hadn’t opened my email yet!
I called my mom sobbing happy tears and she couldn’t even understand what I was saying. I was trying to read the email but I just kept crying and needed to freak out before I could go further. Straight sobs.
When I was finally ready, I read through the email and then opened the Portal that would show my acceptance letter and what my role was.
I got Attractions! I was rather surprised because it was my third choice. BUT! I could not be happier! I was hesitant about BBB and Merch because of the type of people I might be interacting with, and at BBB, it would only be a specific experience I’d be having everyday. Same with Merch, I could have been folding clothes all day or working at an unrecognizable store at a resort. That’s why Attractions is great—I know I’ll be in a park and have new people to meet and experiences that vary more! I hope I get a ride or show that is close to my heart, but I am happy no matter where I am!! I will also not know until my check in day, which is August 11.
I cried more, called my cousin Brad and then my grandpa, and then lots of texts to friends and more family.
It wa so fun going down to lunch at Pi Phi and everyone finding out. My sisters have been so wonderful supportive and loving. Lots of calls were coming in at that point. It was so sweet.
Once I settled back in my room, I continued on with the steps to officially accept. It was all easy and so surreal!
Now I am reveling in all the love on social media and still just processing it all. WOW. I am going to be a CAST MEMBER!!
