Saw you leaning against that old record machine...

When I was younger, I saw my daddy cry and curse at the wind.

He broke his own heart and I watched as he tried to reassemble it.

And my mama swore that she would never let herself forget.

That was the day I promised I’d never sing of love, and it does not exist.

Darling, you are the only exception; you are the only exception.

Maybe I know somewhere deep in my soul that love never lasts,

And we’ve got to find other ways to make it alone or keep a straight face.

And I’ve always lived like this: keeping a comfortable distance.

And up until now, I had sworn to myself that I’m content with loneliness,

Because none of it was ever worth the risk. You are the only exception.

You are the only exception.

You are the only exception.

And I’m on my way to believing.

Oh, and I’m on my way to believing.

I can see the light!
I have flown away!
I have come alive.
I am blown away!

I have felt the love;
I can see the truth
Now that I found you,
Now that I found you.

I can live my life,
believe in faith.
I have found myself;
I have lost the hate.

I have felt the love.
I can see the truth
Now that I found you,
Now that I found you, yeah!

Call me over and tell me how
You got so far never making a single sound?

I’m not used to it, but I can learn
T h e r e ’ s   n o t h i n g   t o   i t  –
I’ve never been happier!

Never   been   happier.

No one is as lucky as us.
We’re not at the end, but we’ve already won!

No one is as lucky as us.


Anonymous said: is there a way to see all the articles you've written on theme park tourist? I can see your profile but i can't find a list or anything

This is a very old ask but I have finally combined most of my relevant theme park writing from Theme Park Tourist into one place! I will tag this TPT and try to keep it updated as more is published.

I’m leaving out ride previews and ride reviews because they’re so easily dated. But they’re on there if you feel like searching.

but I was just now exposed to the first episode of Gravity Falls.

Why didn’t you guys tell me!?

Friend tells me that I am very Dipper-like? Is it the hat?


my partner just texted me about “kesha rose” instead of “ke$ha” because he listens when i say things and it’s very romantic

My dream job randomly popped up, so I just applied for it, and I really am totally qualified for it (I’m not being sarcastic) and it would require a refreshing move! I HOPE I GET IT.

Check out my original, from-scratch re-build of Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World. This aging park is really feeling the weight of its “studio” theme with boxy showbuildings and mismatched rides that set it apart from Walt Disney World’s four other highly detailed and immersive parks. 
With 4 new E-tickets and 7 new, original themed lands, the re-born Disney Hollywoodland Park gets a new lease on life.
