The last three weeks have been completely overwhelming. I had been thinking about quitting my job for a while. This blog that was a hobby had kept me busier than I ever imagined. Combining my blog with a few gigs I had going on behind the scenes, becoming my own boss started to seem like a legitimate possibility.
One of the most tempting aspects of the whole thing? Time. Time to grow my blog. Time to make things. Time to go places. So many of my friends have gone on amazing adventures on behalf of their blog. I thought that maybe if I took the leap and left my job that I would have the time to go on some of those adventures myself. I knew it would take time, but now time was what I had.
It turns out it took four days. When the universe speaks, it speaks quickly. On the fourth official day of being my own boss-my “retirement”, as it’s been nicknamed-I received an email inviting me to the #AvengersEvent.
There’s a part of me that probably won’t even process that this is really going to happen until I’m somewhere in the air on my way to LA. Seriously, in a few more days I’ll be on my way to LA as a guest of Disney to see a screening of Avengers: Age of Ultron. And we’ll be participating in the press junket. And I’m going to be in the same room as Thor and Captain America. They’re just two of the 12 celebrities we’ll be interviewing during the trip. Yes, I still can’t process this…
But wait. There’s more. We’ll be screening the new Disneynature film Monkey Kingdom.
After the movie we’ll be going on a private tour of the LA Zoo! If you click over, make sure you take a look at the zoo’s babies…the cuteness is too much.
Yes, there’s even more. We’ll also be heading over to the the set of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Fingers crossed for a Lola sighting!
The last day in LA ends on a pretty big note. That’s when we get the chance to interview all of these guys. Have any questions you’d like to ask them? Let me know and I’ll do my best to get you an answer!
I’ll be Tweeting and Instagramming as much as I can during the trip. You can follow along with all of the bloggers attending using the hashtags #AvengersEvent, #MonkeyKingdom, #LAZoo, #AgentsofSHIELD and #ABCTVEvent! The Avengers Event will be happening April 9-11, 2015.
