Maleficent-good movie, great headwear

Maleficent-good movie, great headwear

Most years I write about what I’m planning to do for my birthday, what I have already done for my birthday, or why I’m (yet again) lamenting my birthday.

Now, for something completely different. My birthday just passed. It was a nice day/weekend. However, what I’m contemplating at this time are the attempts and accomplishments that have taken place since my last birthday.

Impending Graduation
I am currently starting my last semester of school. In the fall, I will finally earn my Associate’s Degree. It took one extra semester. It’s been more work than I expected. There have been doubts, but I will do this. Eventually (hopefully sooner, rather than later), I will then start on my Bachelor’s.

Life as a Disney Cast Member
The reason that I am one semester behind my peers is that I took a leave of absence last fall to participate in the Disney College Program. It was the most difficult, but also one of the most amazing times of my life. It wasn’t easy. There was a lot of hard work and restrictions. The benefits, experiences, and friendships definitely made it well worth it. WDW is now considered one of my past homes to me. I don’t know if you ever truly leave Disney behind, after working there. I’m always itching and contemplating going back in some capacity. Only time will tell.

Love
My love life has changed in leaps and bounds since this time last year. It’s basically unrecognizable. I’m happy.

Food/Exercise
I was on a huge fitness kick at this time last year. However, I love food. I’m not fond of structured exercise on the daily. I will most likely always struggle with my disordered eating, because I am human. Note: This is more difficult when you are not walking 10-12 miles on the daily, while working at the most magical place on Earth.

Comfort Zone
I can now walk out of my comfort zone. I still suffer from social anxiety/generalized anxiety and am on the spectrum. Yet, I work to overcome/work with these issues daily. Disney definitely helped with this. So, yes I’m still incredibly uncomfortable, but no I’m not going to always just fall back, stand down, or hide. I’m going to strive.

Embracing MY Interests
I am currently embracing both my nerdiness and inner princess to their full extents. It’s not that I’m not worried about others, but I matter more. I definitely regret more of the things that I haven’t done in life, than those that I have. I play Dungeons and Dragons and wear my Minnie ears, deal with it.

Body Realization
My body can handle a lot, but it doesn’t mean that I should push it so hard. I worked and played hard in Orlando and to a different extent in PA, but this isn’t something I need to be doing on the daily. I ended up in the ICU with severe dehydration in April. I do not recommend that. I’m just happy that it happened here, while I was with family.

Cosplay
I, finally (after 9 years of attending cons!), cosplayed both last year and this year, at Philly Wizard World. It takes balls, but I did it.

And now to make the next year even better.

Point pink bubble dress-eBay, pink scarf-Fashion Bug, Esther floral platforms-ShoeDazzle

My sister visited for my birthday weekend at the end of May. We basically just hung out and went to see The Hangover 2. The scarf/hair were her idea for fun. She is a hairstylist so she did it in a fancy braid. I did not wear that scarf like a super hero but I think that pic is funny. I bought this dress last summer but just never got around to wearing it. My sister took these which is why I had a hard time not making a stupid face and why they are from different angles than normal.

Esther floral platforms-ShoeDazzle

I bought these really awesome Esther floral platforms from ShoeDazzle not long ago and had to wear them. They are usually out of this style but the similar looking Anastasia is often in stock.

I'm really fuckin old. Yummy.

I really don’t care about candles on a cake but since others insisted but didn’t remember to buy an 8 (I turned 28) and I wasn’t putting 29 I did this for fun. I had to try the new Target Exclusive Ben & Jerry’s Volun-Tiramisu flavor ice cream. It was good but my current favorite is still Berry Voluntary.

"What? I stand like this naturally"

So then my sister threw on this scarf and posed for fun. I tried to get her to wear it out (cuz I never wear scarves & felt odd) but she declined.

I wore this outfit when Donna and I went to see Sex and the City 2 on my birthday, last Sunday (May 30th). The dress is by Isabel Lu. I bought it from Gilt.com. Gilt is a members only invitation site that sells designer clothes at awesome prices. This dress was about 70% off of the regular price. You can sign up here. My sister is wearing my Sex and the City shirt that I bought in 2008 when the first film was released. It was from Sarah Jessica Parker’s now defunct Bitten line. It was sold at Steve & Barry’s. I remember when I saw the line’s debut on Oprah. The problem was the clothes weren’t that interesting. I guess I was hoping for Carrie style but that’s actually Patricia Field’s style not SJP’s. I thought the movie was really fun. Go here to hype my look if you are on LookBook.

A few days before my birthday my mother took me to Applebee’s to celebrate. Unfortunately we had a really rude waitress and couldn’t really enjoy ourselves. I don’t like to complain but I don’t think it was a big deal that we needed more/different dressing. She never offered to refill my drink and threw our bill at us before we were done eating. I had the chicken won ton tacos and a half size oriental chicken salad.

I wore this Free People dress. I’m a seller on eBay. Usually I just flip movie and TV wardrobe. I don’t buy the stuff to wear myself. Most of the actresses are tiny so I couldn’t do that if I wanted to. When I got this dress worn by Mellie on Dollhouse (Season 1 Episode 5: True Believer) I had to wear it. She’s not a skinny minnie like the other girls on the show. If you’re on LookBook please go hype my style on there.
