H - 17

Yup.. I'm counting days for my graduation :)

Sometimes I find it hard to believe that almost one year has passed since the first day of my MBA program... I've finished 14 courses in this amazing one year. I got a few good friends too. Anyway ... I also find it hard to describe what I'm feeling right now. Yes, I am glad that this one year is over ... (who wants to continue studying day and night? or having group meetings in weekend? =P) but I'm scared of the unknown future too...

Ever since I met my husband, my life is all about planning. We planned our engagement, and then our wedding ... we also planned my education. Now that I've completed my education, what do we have to do next? Everything is so hazy. We still don't know where we will settle down and build our family. I really wish it is US. However, looking at the job market situation ... it's kinda hard to imagine building family here. Thank God my husband still has a job. The problem is whether or not I can find a decent job here in the US. I'm longing to pursue my passion in marketing and fashion ... I'm eyeing the retail industry ... yet, it is so hard to even enter the entry-level positions. 

In addition to all those, I'm also excited about the graduation because of the graduation gift that my husband has prepared =D He actually combined the celebration of my graduation with my birthday. So for the second time... I will be celebrating my birthday ... in a very special place. Disney World =) I've always dreamed of visiting Disney theme parks when I was little. Isn't life so unpredictable? Who would ever thought that I will have a chance to celebrate my birthday there - not just once, but twice? Well, my first birthday in the US was celebrated in Disneyland, Anaheim, CA. This time, we will be celebrating my birthday in Disney World Florida. 

My capstone class is keeping me really busy lately, so I don't have time to really look into travel books and do proper research. However, last night, I was so bored with all the extensive class readings, hence, I decided to entertain myself with creating travel itinerary. I want to list out what I want to see and enjoy when I visit Orlando. Actually, we will be visiting not just Disney World but also both the Universal theme parks in Orlando, Florida. Anyway, this is what makes the planning tricky. I can find a lot of resources for Disney ... like reviews and some itineraries ... but it is kinda hard to find ready-made itinerary for the Universal.

The other crucial decision that we need to make in order to make a good itinerary, is to pick rides and attractions that we will want to enjoy. What makes this step difficult is that I have a low tolerance on roller coaster. Not really low ... but still low =P Well, from what I experienced at Disneyland, I conclude that Disney's roller coasters should not be that scary. I mean those should be still considered OK for me. So for Disney World, I think I can enjoy almost all the rides. Not the same case for Universal...

From what I learned, the rides in Universal are more limited. If I take roller coasters out of the list, there will be not much options left. Furthermore, in most reviews, the not-to-be-missed rides in both Universal Studio Florida and Universal Island of Adventure are Revenge of the Mummy, The Incredible Hulk, and The Dueling Dragon... FYI, they all are roller coasters >.< My husband said it is a waste not to try them ... considering how expensive the ticket is ... so ... I'm in dilemma. Well, since the Mummy is an indoor roller coaster, I think I will have the gut to ride it. The dueling dragon ... hmmm .. we'll see. Maybe I can. Not the Hulk though. I've been watching video from youtube ... and it doesn't look fun at all to me =P LOL

So.. yeah, I'm experiencing a lot of feeling right now. I really wish everything will turn out well. I know He has a special plan for me, and for my husband =) I don't know where we will end up in the future, but I know for sure, my God is there with us.

PS: I find this lyric very comforting ... 

God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don't understand
When you don't see His plan
When you can't trace His hand
Trust His heart

This is the full video =) enjoy!
