It’s been a while since I’ve written anything. Basically, my life is full of anticipation for the near future, and one can only say
Something else I decided to do it forget about New Year’s Resolutions. Not like anyone ever keeps up with theirs anyway. But I AM choosing to decide my resolutions a week and a half early and do Birthday Resolutions instead. It’s basically the same thing since my birthday is so close to New Years. BUT it makes more sense to say you want to do something during a certain age. So here are my 20 Year Old Resolutions:
This post is definitely a shameless plug and giant infomercial. But trust me, if you need a gift or just something for yourself, hear me out!
My mom was invited to an online party for a friend of hers selling Jamberry Nails. She bought a few just to support her friend, and ended up falling in love with this product! So she signed up to sell them, and I signed up under her because they had a Black Friday special and it was too good a deal even if I don’t do anything with it. So first, let me tell you about what this is and why you should care.
http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/KaykpuMe53w&source=udsJamberry Nails are nail wraps that come in hundreds of designs. One sheet is $15 and comes with enough to do each hand 2-3 times (or more if you mix and match) and even enough to do some toes.
Putting the nails on is super easy. I put mine on over both polish and shellac, and they worked fine. Jamberry made a video showing how to apply the nails. Seriously. So easy.
Once they’re on, the wraps should stay on for at least two weeks, at least that’s about how long my mom’s lasted until she got her new ones and wanted to change them. It feels very natural, and no different than having shellac done–especially if you’ve put them on right!
Here’s what mine look like:
I’ve got Aztec Afternoon and the plain white tip on currently.
Go to Hannahnj.jamberrynails.net and browse! They have sorority wraps, bold patterns, solid colors that are available in matte, solid, and glimmer, sports, and more! Some that I think are really cool are the clear background ones. You can get nail wraps with basketballs on a clear wrap, so you can support your team by painting your nails in their colors and it shows through under the basketballs. Or the holiday Christmas lights are the same: paint your nails red and green under the wrap! You can’t really tell in my photos, but under the white tip wraps my nail is painted a sparkly nude/light pink that shows through.
Got a little girl to buy for? The Jamberry Juniors are sets of nail wraps especially for the tiniest nails! These come with two styles, the top style having 14 wraps and the bottom style with 28. There are more on the site, but here is a screen shot of a few.
It’s December 13th.
I’m writing this very late after-the-fact, but I feel like I need to stick up for myself and for others in a similar situation. When it come to doing the DCP, for a lot of people, the program is VERY important to them. It’s important in many ways, because they have grown up loving Disney and the movies and the characters and what the company means. Doing the program is a dream come true for people like me. It’s more important that I get to learn about working for the company that I love and get to create magical moments for guests than it is that I’m getting to put it on my resume. I would do the program even if it wasn’t impressive on my resume. It means that much to me that I participate in this great and magical opportunity.
I’ve had more magical moments AS a guest in the parks than I could even imagine. I’ve had great experience waiting in long lines for characters:

I’ve already made a DCP Bucket List (Here) but I know that the list is very short in comparison to what all WDW has to offer. So I did some Googling and found this blog post on Tumblr of a great bucket list. So I kind of stole it. But it’s okay since I am giving her credit, right?
Like Stephanie says, I want to document as many of these as I can to “cross them off” so after my program begins, search the hashtag #OICdcpBucketList and that’s where you’ll find my completed items (@featherstach3) (@featherstach3). And, in addition to my life bucket list in the tabs above, I will add a DCP Bucket List tab to easily see what I have accomplished and when.
I will update the tab as I discover new things to add to my list! If I’ve missed anything, please let me know!
Last week, I received an email from a DCP campus rep for Texas Tech congratulating myself and the 9 others participating in DCP Spring 2014. He invited us to a “Send-off party” so we would be able to get to know each other a little in order to have some home connections before leaving for Florida, as well as to talk to some DCP alumni. I was actually really looking forward to going, but today, the day of said party, this is what the weather was doing at 9 am:
I found this list on Tumblr earlier this evening, and really liked it.
