    I like that the new pope isnt trying to put the Bible into his own context like pontiffs of the past have. I think everyone will really come to enjoy his views on everything!

    Yeah, even on the day of his induction the clothing he chose and his simple cross, coming out for more than a wave, he set the tone for, 'I'm Pope, I'll do it my way' I'm enjoying him already. The dude has moxy, I'll give him that!

    So what style did you pick for college?

    My DD naturally has dirty blonde long, straight hair. Being a swimmer it always needed to be long enough to tie up and then be able to pull that ponytail up into some version of a knot. Dying it wasn't really an option with all the Chlorine 'cause it casted off a green hew with dye.

    When she was ready to go off for college the first time she had it cut just below the shoulders and very finely had blonde highlights throughout her hair. She looked so grown up which was odd 'cause she is 21 and most people take her for 15 or 16. It was a good going off to college doo but she quickly learned it was easier to go back to basic long hair being in and out of the pool still.

    This new one is a couple minutes from OHare Airport, the other outlet is about an hour due North at the Wisconsin boarder near Lake Michigan and between the two is a regular Disney Store in WoodField Mall. I actually find more at the Outlets than the Disney Store because they have Park overstock.

    Re: Thoughts of Randomness VI

    So today at the Brewers game is the first day of $10 vouchers for ANYTHING, even food. ($10 is about as much as a soda) Anyways this is because the Brewers are having a down season and because of the whole Ryan Braun thing... And I was looking for a huge and an I'm sorry from him but this will do just as well. The $10 vouchers for anything is going from now to the end of the month.

    Disneyland too is doing a big end of summer season push. Discounts on Resort Rooms and free vouchers for meals tied to World of Color preferred seating. Now if we all could just afford the airfare.


    Airfare from Ohare has almost doubled to Orlando. $400-$500 range, ouch.

    Although I'm Catholic, I haven't been keepin' up with our new pontiff lately. If it's not appropriate to put a link here, it would be much appreciated if someone could send me in the right direction...PM, maybe?
    Thanks, in advance!

    Go in as your current self. Avoid any ostentatious changes until you are settled. Like it or not first impressions mean a great deal when you are meeting all new people, both classmates and professors. There is plenty of time to make yourself visually stand out from the rest of the students if you choose to do so.

    One of my DS friends just graduated college, she is really a smart, talented young lady and did so well at her University. Her field is Communications and Public Relations. Upon graduation she has dyed her hair Pink and Orange in contrast with the dark black backdrop of hair. She is getting the first interviews and not any follow up interviews. Everyone but her realizes it is the first impression of her, they are not getting past the hair.

    Take a look at the Disney requirements for grooming/hair. It isn't allowed there either. Even the Little Mermaid bright, unnatural red isn't allowed for onstage Cast Members.

    Like I said, it is just my advice, but consider giving it a little time before you drastically alter your appearance. These last few weeks at home should be exciting, it likely will not be as exciting the following years as you return from summer break. Enjoy the few weeks you have left with your family. Likely your Mom doesn't want to fight with you, your leaving is likely already hard on her and will be when she leaves you at your dorm.
    MASSIVELY sage advice!!!
    The only thing I have to add...
    Don't walk into The Disney Store with 2 full sleeves (+ everywhere else ) of tats claiming you've been a lifelong Disney fan and know "everything" about it and you just wanna' work at The Store "so bad!"
    Uhmmm.....sure, you know everything about it...
