So, after knowing that I’ve been accepted into the DCP since March, I’m finally really packing just days before my departure. It’s difficult to decide what to pack for four months. You need business, casual, workout and sleep wear. Plus shoes! I actually went with a smaller suitcase. This one was coming out to a little over 40lbs, which is the cut off. I’m not going to pay $100 extra (which Spirit charges if you are over). Instead my smaller suitcase is coming out to about 29lbs.

I’m not coherent enough due to my HUGE crush to write out how exciting it was to meet Evan Peters at Wizard World Philly this summer so here’s a video about it instead.

These are not mine but they are from the same panel.

Mon View Pool in PA

It’s summertime again, so how about a super overly specific playlist? When I was a preteen, my sister and I spent a lot of time hanging at the best pool around (Mon View, of course). There was always loud music blasting. Luckily for me, the super horny teenage help must have been in control of the dial because these are the songs I swam to. Basically if it was a R&B song about fucking we were going to learn it and inappropriately sing it in between strokes.

Here are my fun nostalgic pool songs of the 90s.

90s Hangin at the Pool from Emma_moon on 8tracks Radio.

This Is How We Do It-Montell Jordan
Red Light Special-TLC
Whatta Man-Salt N Pepa
Doin It’-LL Cool J
My Lovin’-En Vogue
Unbreak My Heart-Toni Braxton

disney lifeguard

my "sinspiration", j/k

my “sinspiration”, j/k

This fall I will be working in Orlando, Florida for Disney as a part of the Disney College Program. My role is lifeguard. See above for a photo of an actual Disney lifeguard and the poster for Kristen Bell’s The Lifeguard. Obviously that has no relation to this except it comes to mind when I think of lifeguarding. Plus she does have to wear a red swimsuit and she’s over 30.

In my above video I go into detail on everything I’ve learned about what it will be like when I actually do the program. Obviously I won’t really know what it’s like until I start but I like to be as prepared as possible.

Below are the videos and links I’ve found online to be most useful when it comes to researching this role. I’d recommend watching both the unofficial and official videos to really get a feel for it.







I forgot to mention in my video that yes, it’s a known thing for the lifeguards to dance (so fun!).

missemmamm dcp audition outfit

missemmamm disney look makeup

missemmamm disney look nails

In March, the day after I was accepted into the Disney College Program, I attended a Disney Entertainment Audition in Philadelphia, PA. It was my first ever live audition for anything. So I was both excited and nervous, as you’d expect. The photo above is what I wore to my audition. I’ve also included photos of how I did my makeup and nails because I was trying to look cute and young but stay within the Disney Look.

Please watch the videos below for info on what it was like and what you may experience if you decide to attend an audition in the future. I was hoping to be cast as a fur character. I was quickly cut but it was definitely an experience that I’d recommend if it’s something you are passionate about. I plan to audition again while I’m doing my program in Orlando.
