Disney’s Epcot & more!!

Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone! I apologize for not blogging often – but I realized that today’s ALMOST the 1 (<– that one is adorable) year anniversary of this site.  What a better way to enter the summer than a blog on my experiences at Disney World?

I traveled (by car) 3-4 states over all the way to Orlando in late March for spring break!  I completely forgot the order but here are the places we visited:

  • Epcot
  • Disney’s Hollywood Studios (formerly MGM)
  • Animal Kingdom (will be posting some pictures)
  • Magic Kingdom
  • Universal Studios
  • Islands of Adventure!

Boom. 6 theme parks in 7 days!!

Unfortunately, most of the pictures have my family in them, so I won’t be posting many.

****

First, I’ll tell you about the beautiful EPCOT! This was the first park I went to, so I remember it pretty clearly.

Epcot was one of my personal favorites because it wasn’t completely overwhelming like, say, Magic Kingdom.  You could stroll & walk through all the different countries of the world while trying the cuisines & watching cultural shows! It was incredibly amazing seeing all the different countries – France & Italy were all cobblestone, Japan had a beautiful rock garden and China a garden and … MULAN!

Mulan was the first face character I met.  She was super friendly & even had that little strand of hair on her forehead like in the movie.  She was actually one of the better face characters & always was in Mulan’s personality – she said things like, “You’ve traveled a long way to here in China.” “Oh, you’re very strong girls, aren’t you?” It was so cute! I’ll tell you – meeting your childhood Disney idol is way better than meeting a celebrity!

We missed Snow White in Germany, but we met Aladdin & Jasmine in Morocco. We came in right as they were about to leave. Aladdin was an amazing face character. I’d always been such a huge fan of Aladdin, & it was wonderful seeing them in real life.

Jasmine was kind of sour looking though, but Aladdin really lit everything up. I’m serious. He looked so gorgeous I wanted to curl up into a ball & hide – I could barely speak to him! Gdamtewtwvah!!

CONVERSATION BTWN ALADDIN, JASMINE, SISTER & I:

Aladdin: Hello, how are you guys?

Sis: We’re fine!

Aladdin: So are you two sisters?

Both: Yes!

Aladdin: Which is the older?

Sis: I am.

Me: She is.

Aladdin: Oh, but the younger’s taller, isn’t she?

-laughing-

Aladdin to me: Do you play volleyball?

Me: Yes, actually I do!

Aladdin: What position do you play?

Me: I-I don’t really have a position, we alternate.

Aladdin: Are you a libero?

Me: Uh .. What? Um, I don’t know what that is..? –Freaking out in mind-

Aladdin: Oh, how long have you been playing?

Me: 3 years.

Aladdin: 3 years & you don’t know what a libero is?

And then we take a picture, in which Aladdin extends & says, “Would you do me the honor of taking my arm?”  By then I’m like, yes! yes, Aladdin! Yes! Take me on the magic carpet, let’s sing together & spin around!!!!! 

After the picture, Aladdin says that he’ll have to come & play volleyball with my school sometime. By then I was in la la land & was on the verge of passing out.

After that dream, we met Belle & Beast in France! Beast was so awesome (he was wearing a suit) & instead of shaking his hand I hugged him. Belle was really friendly too :D I also met Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) in France. France was one of my favorite sections because of the food, which consisted of brilliant pastries & waiters serving you in dashing French accents.

The UK section was really cute – I met Mary Poppins! SHE WAS SO PROPER! Of course, she was in a poofy dress, white gloves & an umbrella. She was great, and she said things like, “Your hat is most splendid. I have an array of hats with doo-dads on them at home.” And “Fold your hands like this, it’s the proper way.” And she also said the famous Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards.

Surprisingly, we also met Tigger & Pooh in the UK! 

Epcot had a couple of attractions – we went on a boat ride in Norway, saw an acrobatic show in China, & viewed many exhibitions all over! 

It was spectacular! Although it rained pretty much the whole time we were there, it was so much fun meeting the characters. (Unfortunately, I forgot my Cinderella autograph book from 1999 at the hotel) 

I would kill to go back there again :) 

——-

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed reading about Epcot today! Maybe this will excite some of those who haven’t been there or make someone else want to revisit. 

I think I’ll have to write about the other parks later (next will be Hollywood Studios) because I don’t want to extend this post too long :)  (OR comment & tell me which park you’re most anxious to hear about)

Hope you enjoyed, & if you’ve been to Epcot or any of the other parks mentioned, be sure to let me know, I’d love to hear about your experiences!! 

PS: Figured out what a libero meant: The libero remains in the game at all times and is the only player not limited by rules of rotation. He usually replaces the middle blocker position when they rotate to the back row and never rotates to the front row himself.  The libero is responsible for a great deal of the passing in serve receive. Often the libero will be responsible for a much greater part of the court than his teammates. WHOO! Aladdin must have thought I was pretty darn good!! 

I LOVE YOU ALADDIN!!!   Aladdin is completely awesome.

Favorite Sites & Other Fluff!

Hi everyone! 

It seems every time I commit to something it always ends up falling flat on its face. For example, I was going to do a summer writing challenge & write a short story everyday until school started. Guess how many short stories I made this summer? FOUR. Only! I wasn’t productive this summer at all – I only wrote 4 short stories &  rewrote bits of Film. I didn’t even write any poems :( I tried journaling, which lasted longer. I wanted to journal everyday but slowly, (like always) I lost that commitment. I stayed strong for about a week then I slacked off again. I’m disappointed that I didn’t reach my goal. :( So now that summer’s over, I’m doing a new challenge, & hopefully I’ll make it! It’s called the 30-day drawing challenge!

It’ll be a bit hard because I’m really not the best drawer :( I’ll post my pictures on here :) I already drew a picture of myself but I just need to upload it on to the computer. I’ll post it next time I blog. I’m also doing another thing called OneWord, but I’ll talk about that later :) Here is a list of my favorite websites! Try some out! :)

1)  STUMBLEUPON.COM

My goodness StumbleUpon is just about the best website known to man!!! If you’ve never heard of it, SU collects the best of everything on the web – stories, jokes, other funny things, great videos, songs, infographics, games – & presents them to you! All you have to do is sign up for it & you’ll have the best of the web at you fingertips. You can save you favorite sites & look at them later. I really really recommend SU. It’s really entertaining & I literally have stumbled for hours (it’s a great time waster ^_^ ) If you want to add/follow me, my user is kezisicecream :)

2) SKETCHSWAP.COM

Long story short – draw a picture (it helps if you have a tablet ^_^ ) & get a random picture in return! b/c the pictures are approved by the owners of the site first, they’re usually really good! I find it interesting to see other people’s drawings!! :)

3) SECRETSSAFE.COM

Same concept as above! Enter a secret & have someone else’s secret be delivered to you! There is no way for the other person to track you, so it’s safe as long as you don’t put your address or something O_o also really fun! But be warned: sometimes the secrets are inappropriate.. 

4) OMGPOP.COM

I don’t really go on much anymore, but they have really great games! They’re very fun. My user is… KawaiiKezi21?? I think .. ^_^ But anyways, this site is great. My fav games are Balloono & Draw My Thing! Check it out!! :)

5) SKYPE.COM

Not really so much as a website, but more like a program. It’s free to download, & you can talk to your friends who also have a Skype account! You can even video chat for free if you have a webcam. It’s easy to use, I go on all the time! The ideal way to keep in contact with your friends. 

6) ONEWORD.COM

Oneword is really cool! I just found out about it today! (on SU, another reason you should get a SU account) This site is best if you love writing. OW iss where they give you one word each day & you have 60 seconds to write about it. Don’t think, don’t ponder about it – just write. I think this is the best kind of writing – when you write what comes naturally to you. It’s really fun, & I’ll be posting my ONEWORD of the day here! Try it out :) My user is kezi21. 

Not much of a selection, is there? I’m sorry :( I usually don’t do much while on the computer, just watch videos, blog, read ASW stuff obsessively, stumble or read articles >__< Arg I know I do more than those, but they’re trapped in the back of my mind right now!! Maybe I’ll post another blog about this topic later ^_^

NEW THINGS: I’ll be posting my OneWord at  the end of each blog post (read #4 for more info!) & I’ll also be posting the song of the day! Sorry if my taste of music isn’t the same as yours, but it’s always good to try new things!! Hope this post was helpful to you! Bye bye.. just so you know, I probably won’t be on till next Saturday? So see you! 

OneWord of the day: POISON

Nothing is so deadly. She clutched her heart, an icy, not hot, to her surprise, feeling crept up her veins, chilling her, freezing her, engulfing her in an uneasy sadness that could only mean one thing – she had been infected.

It’s so short b/c we only have a minute to write about it & I was typing on my mom’s iPad, not a real keyboard :)

SONG OF THE DAY:

Boom Boom Boom Boom by Vengaboys!! This.song.is.so.catchy!!!! And awesome! I love the beat, and the tune. It gets stuck in my head often :) I wish I could’ve posted the actual music video, but it’s very inappropriate.. b/c if you listen to this song closely.. um.. it’s not exactly kid-friendly o_O .. but of course I only like the tune & stuff, not the lyrics. See ya ♥

Fun ‘What-Would-You-Do-Questions!”

I love answering these kind of questions. “What would you do if..”  I’ll answer some today :)

1)  If you had only 24 hours to live, what would you do?

I would say good bye to all my loved ones & friends, of course. Then I’d go do something outrageous. Like I’d dress up like a banana with my friends (or maybe just one, I think only one out of all of them would do it) & go running around in the streets. I’d attempt to go surfing &  I’d do everything I’d want to do in my life & do it in that one day. I’d apologize to people if I’d ever hurt them, I’d say thank you, I’d tell all the ‘mean’ people in my class what I really felt about them (harsh, i know..) & basically I’d have the time of my life. When I’m in Heaven or something I don’t want to look back & see all the things I regret or could have done, but didn’t. 

2) If you could ask God any one question, what would it be?

“When will I die?” It’s a depressing question I know, but I want to be prepared so that in the time I have left, I can live my life to the fullest.

3) If you could be another man or woman for a day, who would you choose?

I’d be my sister :p She just has it all good, everything figured out, she has so many friends, she’s smart & very pretty, inside & out. Right now she’s living it up in SD.

4) If you could date a celebrity, who would you choose?

Easy. Zachary David Porter. Ugh, I can’t get enough of him! He’s so sweet, funny, kind & .. awkward.. but that’s what makes him amazing. He’s also a great song writer, singer, musician & he’s just really down-to-earth. Please bear with me. 

5) If you could speak any other language (besides English) which language would you like to speak?

I’d speak French. French is just so beautiful, seriously. Every time I hear a person speak it, I think of class. Weird, I know, it’s just a classy language.

 6) If you had one wish, what would you wish for?

I’d wish for world peace. But I’m not entirely sure. I’m convinced everything happens for a reason. Maybe bad people were put on the earth to make us stronger. So I’d probably scratch that. I’d wish that innocent, good people would all have a long, happy life with no sorrow or pain. It’s what they really deserve. It’s what everyone deserves. 

7) If you had to choose between love and no money or money and no love for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

Of course love. What do you think those people who have no money have? All they have is love. And that’s what keep them going. That’s what keeps them moving everyday- love. That’s really all you need.

8) If you had to choose, would you give up your sight or your hearing?

I would give up hearing. The world is just too beautiful to give up my vision. If I was deaf I could always learn how to sign & read lips. I think I’d be alright :)

9) If you were asked to choose which time period you would like to live in, which would you choose?

I’d live in the 70’s, baby! That sounds like fun. Fantastic colors, great music & awesome, outrageous clothing. Peace would be trending. Discos! Wow, that would be amazing. And best of all, it’s all before things start getting complicated with the computers & iPhones & such. I love the advanced technology we have today, but sometimes I think it has many downsides. My goodness. I’d never admit it in front of her, but Lucy, you were right; I am a hippie  -__- Check out this 70’s song: it’s so amazing! And so catchy! And so groovy! (pun intended)  haha ♥

10) If you were given choice to live as long as you like, how long would you like to live?

I’d live until I’m 100. So then I could see how much things had changed since I was born. Honestly, that’s the only reason. I wouldn’t want to live any longer than that – my friends & fam would’ve already been passed away; I couldn’t live without company. I would never choose to live forever. Then I’d never go to Heaven- the only place you would ever be truly happy :( Besides – when the world explodes or whatever, what what happen?? Would I just be floating in Space?? No way Jose!  

10 questions is all for now :) Just so you guys know- I probably won’t be on again in a very long time. A few weeks, maybe? I promise no longer than that :) I’m going on vacation tomorrow (oh dang, I need to pack -__-) & I’ll be gone for a week. When I get back it’s going to be all about school – uniforms & supplies. Sadly I won’t be able to post as much when school starts :( But in the meantime, you can watch these awesome videos!! :) I found most of these on StumbleUpon. All of these are amazing! Hope you enjoy them!!

– A very cute, fun, but sad animation film, it’s really worth your time :)

Pen that never runs out of ink!

I guess that’s the real reason I started to blog. So anyways, I guess I’ll see you tomorrow! Have a good one ~  

P.S- 

:) I just need a few more votes. Ask & you shall receive. The reason I did this post was b/c someone requested more joke stories & links to fun places. So keep voting everyone! 

Plinky Prompts ~

I forgot I signed up for this thing called Plinky, which I don’t really use, but today I got an e-mail asking me to answer all the prompts from last week. They are decent questions, so from now on I guess if I keep getting emails from them I’ll answer new ones whenever they send some to me on here :) So, here are my answers. 

1) If you could get away with committing one crime, what would you do?

       I honestly have no idea. I really don’t want to commit a crime, even if I could get away w/ it ;p (^__^ I know I’m boring)

2) What do you worry about?

     I seriously worry about everything :( I worry about grades, my fam & friends, the milk expiration date, when my glitter pens will run out of ink, how many tissues I need to bring, whether or not my flowers will grow this year, etc. I tend to over think things too much :)

3) Do you think money can buy happiness?

Hm. Well, my real answer is that yes, I think money can buy happiness. But I’m not talking about a new video game, or splurging on iPods & game systems, I’m talking about things that you need to survive that money can buy. An example is a house to keep you sheltered, insurance for when you get sick, & of course food (to live!!) & education (which will benefit you later on in life.) If you don’t have money, I doubt you could  buy any of those things for yourself (not including assistance) & I think you need those to be happy. Well, at least, I would need those to be happy :p But if you’re really a trooper, and you’re an optimistic, I guess you can go on without that stuff. And of course, family’s really important too, you don’t need money for that :) 

4) Do you feel obligated to finish all the books you start reading?

Um, judging by all the unfinished books on my bookshelf, I guess no :) Because I am a “sort-of writer,” naturally I want don’t want an author’s hard work & dedication to go to waste. But then I realize if I’m not interested in the book, then it’s just not for me to read at that time. So no, I don’t really feel obligated to finish a book.

5) You just acquired a magic wand. What will you use it for? 

Opening locks. Alohamora. Summoning objects. Accio french fry ;) Levitating objects. Wingardium Levisoa! Creating light. Lumos! Erasing people’s memories! Obliviate! And of course.. killing people! Advada Kadarva! (jk on that one)

Boom. 

6) What form of exercise do you like most? 

     Um, I don’t really like exercising in general :( But if I had to choose, I would pick jumproping & playing v-ball.

7) What’s your favorite summertime sound? 

      I really enjoy hearing the crickets chirp at night. It’s like a beautiful symphony, each individual cricket is using its voice to create an overall pleasing melody. I’m kidding. I really detest bugs, & just hearing them chirp makes me think of all the ones I can’t see but are crawling around at that very moment :( My real fav summertime sound is .. the ice cream truck! I love the ice cream truck tune, it’s cute & it screams summer :)

I guess that’s all for now! & before you go, please vote on this poll :) Even if you already voted, that’s ok, vote again! I really would prefer you to choose just one answer, so I can really narrow it down :)

Okey-dokey~ I’m probably not going to post tomorrow, because I’ll be out all day WATCHING THE HARRY POTTER PREMIERE :) (sorry, I’m excited..) & other stuff of course. Oh yes! I also got a pretty new journal yesterday :) 

It’s so pwetty :) I also like it because it has no spiral, which makes things so much easier ’cause imma lefty ;) Have a good one :)

PS:
