Well, I'm back!
I'm tired! *yawn* lol.
Not used to the jet lag yet but I thought I might rant about my holiday.
It was so fab!
We hardly had any rest because we always had something to do.
Arrived Saturday, didnt do anything else but relax then.
Sunday and Monday we went shopping since our Theme Park days had to be put on hold. We were also supposed to see the rocket launch on Monday morning at 2 am from the Kennedy Space Center. It didn’t take off and we were so far away, it was pointless. But NASA visit was great fun!
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we hit Disney World - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM Studios and Animal Kingdom.
It was SO awesome! I even got to have pictures with loads of Disney characters! Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, Pluto, Captain Hook and Mr Smee, Chip and Dale, Mary Poppins, Rafiki, Dopey, Timon....
Man, I felt like such a kid again and I hope no one knew I'm 18. Lol.
Naw, just kidding. It was so fun. I loved it. And Wishes was BEAUTIFUL. Illuminations was alright but Fantasmic was greaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!
Saturday we went to Seaworld. It was awesome, though the show in Ocean Park in Hong Kong or the Seaworld in California was better. There were too many pauses in the shows in Seaworld Orlando. We did get to Dine With Shamu, even got a little splashed! Lol. My poor poor cheesecake lmao.
Sunday we went to Universal Studios. It was so awesome. I LOVE Universal Studios! It was so fun.
Monday was swimming with Dolphins day at Discovery Cove. MAN that place ROCKED. I mean, it was really posh and beautiful…. And WOW. I spent all day swimming in the tropical river (after going everywhere else) and man I got REALLY tanned. I mean REALLY tanned. And I never even GET tanned.
Tuesday was…. Er… I’ve forgotten… wait wait…. No I don’t remember. Drat. What have I missed?!
Wednesday we wasted it in Busch Gardens (or was this on Tuesday? Then what did I do on Wednesday?! Gah, either way…). It was a complete waste of time. It wasn’t that interesting and the service was TERRIBLE. Never go back THERE again. Huff.
And lastly, Thursday we went to Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure and CityWalk. Dude this place rocked too. I mean, sure it rained so we didn’t get to do a lot, but we went on all the coasters we wanted to. It was so great. I wanted to do the water rides, but no one wanted to go on them with me. Oh well.
Friday, the storm hit. So we stayed in. We were supposed to be swimming with manatees but oh well. It was so much fun relaxing.
Saturday we were supposed to fly out, but then Sanford airport closed so we couldn’t do much. We had to extend another day.
We flew out Sunday and I got back to England Monday morning.
It was such an amazing holiday. And even if it was very tiring, it was fun! Though I missed Las Vegas lol.
This trip was full of unusual and special things which we don’t normally have happening. Swimming with dolphins and sting rays, dining with shamu, getting stranded in a hotel in a storm, oh yeah, and getting locked in a ride for about 20 minutes. The Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith shut down due to someone going where they shouldn’t, and we were about to hit the first loop when we slid back down and the ride stopped. We were in complete darkness even if the music was blaring. It was fun!
Oh and another funny experience was on the way back to England, when I passed through the metal detector I had to get pulled aside because my jeans were studded by metal all down the legs and around the hem… so you can imagine me standing there for 5 minutes while everyone passing was staring as the hand metal detector wouldn’t stop beeping as it passed over me.
It was a great holiday.
To top it all off, today I got my exam results. You can get grades A to E and then a U for ungraded. I was hoping for at least Cs across the board…. And I got it! Woo. Although I got 4 Cs and 2 Bs. Not that amazing really but at least I didn’t fail. That’s okay right? I’ve still got the second half to bring it up.
And of course, I’ve got a lot going for me, so everything’s fab.
Aside from the fact that my life wouldn’t be complete without my mom getting annoyed at me as usual.
Even her sisters know what she’s like and how irritating it is. Unfortunately they don’t have to live with her.
Oh well, here goes another year.
And not to mention she was like that on the trip too. *Sigh* Wonderful.
I'm just glad for my friend who came with me. She made it SO much better. She was so great!
I need to go research SATs because I need to take them if I want to study in the USA. So fingers crossed everyone.
Better run. Things to do and people to hang with. You guys rock! My friends so totally rock! *great big huggles to everyone*
Gotta jet! Byeeeee!
