I'm not even sure if I'll be able to go on a trip to Walt Disney World in January, but I'm already excited about certain things. Hopefully being there for both my birthday and my boyfriend's, the awesome restaurants we hope to try, and the general fact that we will have been in Walt Disney World on two different trips within six months, a first for us. That said, there's one thing I'm not excited about: telling people.
I'm the type of person who doesn't like conflict. I often try to call as little attention to myself as possible. I don't like telling people things that they will think is weird. And, unfortunately, some people think going to Walt Disney World twice in six months is weird. Crazy, but true.
It's not strangers I'm worried about. In fact, I would defend my decision blatantly to strangers who inquired. It's people that I know. For one, my boyfriend's parents. My own parents and my boyfriend know the extent of my obsessive personality. Heck, my boyfriend's even coming along for the ride, so obviously he doesn't protest. But I'm dreading the day that we tell his parents that we've booked a return trip down to the World in such a short amount of time. I mean they hardly understand why anyone would return at all, let alone past age 13. They believe that no one needs to return to Disney until they have kids of their own.
Also, my friends. Very few people that I know in person know I have a blog. In fact, the number that do is certainly below five. It will probably be easy to keep our January trip a secret, but I don't want to have to. I want to think about it and talk about it and annoy my boyfriend about it until he never wants to hear the word "Disney" again. But my friends will think it's weird, and I don't want to seem weird in front of my friends. Then again, any friends who think you're weird and don't like you for it were never friends at all, were they?
How do you deal with the opposition. How do you answer the question "you're going to Disney again?" Let me know what you've had to deal with in a comment, a tweet (@discollegeblog), or on Facebook!
