Hello, as promised I am back from Orlando, Florida to tell you about my time and also post pictures of animatronics and stuff like that. Thus far I have two videos on my channel regarding my trip, but fear not because there are plenty more to come. I just have to edit them and stuff. We had a lot more footage; Jacob accidentally deleted it and we are also recovering a lot of footage that was corrupted. (Thank God for file recovery programs.) I shall post the videos below:
The hotel was extremely fancy, we didn’t know but it was like a five star hotel and the only people that were there were: rich old people, young girls with their sugar daddies, and twenty year old whinny girls whose rich parents bought them a vacation. So yeah, not one person was nice there. People in Detroit were so much nicer than people in downtown Orlando. It was still a nice place to stay, though, even though 9/10 people were stuck up.
Downtown Orlando is a scary place. People always tell you that Florida inhabits nice old retired couples and families on vacation. But the truth of Orlando is very far from that. It’s like the city of party animals. (At least the downtown area is). Seriously, there’s clubs and bars and cigar shops and that’s pretty much it. Help.
We went to this burger place and the guys working there looked so creepy that I actually didn’t even order anything (though I did eat off of Jacob’s plate . . . because I was that hungry, okay?!)
Putting all of that aside, let’s just focus on the main reason why we travelled down there in the first place: (and FYI, the weather in Orlando was the exact same weather that we have during the summertime here in Canada. There was literally no difference.) TO SEE THE ROCK-AFIRE EXPLOSION! And it was amazing. If you ask me what my fave part of the entire experience was (other than my skit), well, here you go:
I’m obsessed with the Wolf Pack 5, which is the band that came before the Rock-afire Explosion. The lead female vocalist, Mini Mozzarella, is my all time favourite. She may even be my favourite animatronic, period. She’s cute, gorgeous, beautiful, sweet . . . The list could go on and on. But they were being sold, a video was put up in March about them being dragged out from their crates that they lived in since 1980. It was a sad moment for me, knowing that they were going to be sold and I wouldn’t get to see Mini at my tour. “If only we had gone months earlier.” I had told Jacob. “She’s not going to be there . . . why would Aaron sell them?!” I had said. She was my fave, and I wouldn’t get to meet her, and that was a devastating thing for me. So on August 14, it was a cold rainy day in Orlando. We walk into Creative Engineering, and what’s the very first thing that I see? MINI FUCKING MOZZARELLA. (Excuse my language. It was just a very happy time for me.) Of course I fanned my face excitedly, ran over to her and grabbed some pics. It’s an awkward moment when a robotic mouse is much hotter than you are. And she was naked, but that was okay. But still, I got to see her and the rest of the WP5! That was good luck on me, because they were supposed to be sold back in June but the guy that bought them got arrested. So, score.
So there you have it. More pictures/videos are yet to come! xoxo
This is very late because the fireworks were in June. But I remembered that last year I made a post about them, and how can you not? Fireworks are awesome, they’re definitely worth posting about. This year, it was raining the day of and many thought they’d have to postpone it. Luckily, the rain stopped just hours before, but they had to make it at nine instead of ten. Therefore it was still pretty light outside which took away the dramatic effect, but the fireworks were still awesome nonetheless. Yes, they still had cool shapes this year, like smiley faces and hearts. And yes, the ending was actually better than the other years. It sounded like a million gunshots going off at once for at least a minute, it was pretty intense. The people made me think of myself as a young child, covering my ears to protect them from the loud noise. Hey, it was pretty loud.
Then a couple of days later, we went back downtown to go to the carnival. I actually forced myself to go on a big ride (after hours of debating). It was very fun. Fun rides, good company, nice scenery, and tasty food (and the best cherry lemonade you’ll ever have).
Summer is really fun so far! My boyfriend and I are extremely excited to go to Florida in August. Maybe some of you know why. 😉
I hope you’re all having a great summer so far! Stay safe and have fun! xx
Hello bloggers! So I’ve been thinking for a few days now: how am I going to write my Toronto/Niagara Falls blogs? I did and saw so much that it would be hard to put it all into one blog. After all, I’m not a travel blogger. (They travel the world lots then write about all they see/do.) I’m more of a, book/quotes/tips/reviews, etc blogger. And of course I didn’t want to just pile everything into one blog. Whenever I see an extremely long blog, I begin to yawn and immediately close the page. I know how tiring it can be to see a long blog, and overwhelming—sometimes, you just don’t have the time to sit there that long. Because of this, I decided to divide my blog up into three parts: travel and hotels, sights and attractions, and food and miscellaneous. Thank you, and thanks to all of the wonderful Torontonians out there. ❤

(comes out 2014-08-18)
Hey bloggers, I am writing to you from a train. (And it looks like it’s about to rain, soon 😦 !) I won’t be blogging for the next week because I will be in the beautiful city of Toronto, Ontario, Canada! Also known as, one of my favorite cities in Canada to visit. I’m going with my boyfriend Jacob, it’s our first vacation ever together so we’re both pretty excited. 😆 Another two hours or so on the train; it’s around four in total to get to from where I live to Toronto. What’s your favorite thing to do in Toronto? I LOVE the CN Tower (not recommended for those who have a fear of heights), and the aquarium, and Toronto Island, and, of course, all of the shopping centers and downtown Toronto. Write in the comments a few things you love to do in Toronto, and we’ll check them out. ❤
Just a bit longer to go until we’re in this beautiful city!
Hope you’re all enjoying your August so far!
