Flying SoloApril 27, 2009
Yestday was Emily’s birthday (happy birthday!) and we went out for lunch at Chili’s. Emily’s deadline to accept/decline date was the same as mine, but she still hadn’t quite made up her mind what she wanted to do. She had some other colleges to visit, and wanted to see how those were looking before she commited fully to Disney. So she accepted her invitation, and made use of the two-week time frame for paying the assessment fee. Yesterday was the payment deadline, though, and, coincidentally, the same day she got back from another college visit. Her visit was a success, and so she has decided not to go to Disney.
I’m definitely sad, because how cool would it have been to be at Disney with my best friend? Super fun, right? But while I think Disney would have been tons of fun for both of us, this will probably be a better choice for her in the long-run. I’m just really glad that she was there to go through the whole application process with me, though. Gave me someone to worry about my interview with. 🙂 So, Emily, good luck! Love ya, girl!
Since Emily’s not going, I will probably sign up for roommate notification in the next couple of weeks. Disney can match CPs up with one of their roommates before they go, so that they can get to know each other and coordinate what they will bring for the apartment. This whole roommate thing is a little nerve-wracking, as I’ve never even had to share a room with a sibling, much less with a total stranger! But I suppose it’s all part of the experience. So from here on out, my safety net is gone–I’m on my own. This is looking more and more like an adventure all the time, huh? 🙂
