SENTIMENTAL STUFF

As you may know, I worked at Walt Disney World back in 2007/2008. This means that there’s a list of things that just have to happen during our trip (for nostalgia’s sake)

  • Visit my signature in my old workplace
  • Try to lunch with as many friends and co-workers as possible
  • Annoy Jill with many stories

THINGS THAT JUST HAPPEN TO OCCUR
