If you’ve checked put my previous blog posts or my YouTube channel you’d know thrifting is something I love and am very passionate about. I’m here today to give you some tips and tricks I wish I knew when I first started my thrifting journey.
I’ve decided to start a new part on my blog capturing the adventures I go on creating art as a college student. My awesome roomie and new best friend models and two of her photographer friends came up for the weekend and let me tell you, it was a kick ass thing.
When I first started my job two years ago I remember asking “Why would you stock for morning crew if they don’t stalk for you?” and my manager responded saying “Because it’s the right thing to do.” I’ve learned a lot for my job but this is something that will stick with me for a while.
The day I turned 16 I started applying for jobs. I got hired at my first and only interview and a fast food restaurant near my house. The restaurant I work at is actually right across the street from my chains corporate headquarters.
I recently went to Disney World for the first time! It was my graduation present and it was a blast. My mom and I had the Disney Dinning Plan which included two snacks, one quick service meal (which is a counter service meal) and one sit down meal per person a day. I realized it was much easier to say you have food allergies because the one time my mom said I was vegan and the chef was not too kind about it. They will bring the chef out for you and it’s amazing! I’m going to start day by day and talk about what I ate!
Magic Kingdom was the first park we stopped at. I first had a funnel cake, which I was told was vegan friendly, at Sleepy Hollow. I unfortunately don’t have any pictures of in but man was it good. The next stop was our sit down dinner at the Diamond Horseshoe. The chef prepared a salad, a pasta dish with vegetables, and corn and potatoes for me. For desseret I got sorbet. Later that night I got Dole whip because apparently that’s one thing you can’t miss out on at Disney.
My mom and I went to Epcot two days! The first day I used my quick service meal at Liberty Tavern to order their “Chicken”. It’s not real chicken of course but I have definitely had better meat alternatives. I didn’t end up using my snakes the first day but the second day I did get shaved ice!
For our sit-down meals we went to Beirgarden in Germany and Chef De France in France. One of these was the one who my mom mistakenly mentioned the dreaded word vegan but it all turned out okay. At Beirgarden I was very limited, I got potatoes, green beans, rolls, and a salad.
Chef De France was my favorite meal. Not only did we get to see the Epcot lake show from our dinner table the meal was amazing. The chef was so kind and accommodating. I got a roll, french onion soup without cheese, tomatoes stuffed with vegetables, and finally amazing sorbet. My birthday was March 22 so my mom surprised me and he them sing to me!
