Define Happy

Hey, where in the world has the author been? It’s almost been two months since we last saw her!

Instead of pleading the Fifth, how about I share with you some snapshots of my life while I was away from this wonderful blogging space:

Yes, multiple visits to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood were made during the months of April and May with good friends. Contrary to my expression in the first picture, I did try Butterbeer and thought it was interesting, but I preferred the Gillywater. 🙂

Early May was Spring Dapper Day at the Disneyland Resort and there was no shortage of Dapper Disneybounders like myself. It’s a no brainer for me to channel my favorite Lucky Rabbit.

I guess you could say that the month of April and May were spent trying to reconnect with old friends and making new memories. Many of these people I haven’t seen in almost a year and now that many of us are working, getting married, or studying graduate or doctorate degrees, we hardly have time to hang out and just have fun without the worries. These three images are only the tip of the iceberg in terms of time spent with friends and family, but I like to think that in those months, I said yes to more fun times than ever.

All right gang, how about you? Any exciting, magical events take place while I was gone?


So This is 2014 and What Have You Done?

Funny how a line from a music legend has rung true in my mind for the past few months. 2013 is coming to a close and I was inspired by a Facebook post that a friend of mine did where she listed the accomplishments of this year off.

  1. Began interning with my dream company that has always been a part of my life, The Walt Disney Company.
  2. Partook in my first ever Dapper Day at Disneyland with some good friends.
  3. Completed my senior thesis in May.
  4. Walked with the students of Chapman University graduating in 2013.
  5. Watched panels in the infamous Hall H at San Diego Comic Con, including The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
  6. Introduced some of my favorite artists to the WonderGround Gallery crew and began working with them to create Disney art with a twist.
  7. Connected with multiple artists on a personal basis and formed some great professional relationships and connections.
  8. Attempted (through trial and error) to bake French macarons. (Still perfecting the recipe!)
  9. Completed my first National Blogging Month challenge on this blog. (Click on November to read all of the posts.)
