i'm still proud of both on a coding level but wanted something a bit more simple

honestly, i kinda lost interest in trying to figure out cooking... seemed too few "recipes" to keep up

mini-shrines from my USO and islands of adventure page, idk they were a good idea in my opinion but hard to execute in a way i was happy with.

my first trip to universal with the wizarding world of harry potter, i was prepared to think it was boring because i'm not really a harry potter fan. by the end of the trip, i'd bought the first volume just so i could further enjoy the theme park. the theming here is top class! one of my favorite things to do leading up to visiting universal is to marathon all the HP movies. =)

favorite attraction: harry potter and the forbidden journey
favorite snack: hot butterbeer

i'm always excited to walk around seuss landing!! it's a perfect interpretation of dr. seuss in real life. my favorite ride is definitely the cat in the hat, i'm instantly nostalgic walking into the queue and feeling the cold air. =)

favorite attraction: the cat in the hat
favorite snack: tater tot bowls from green eggs and ham


i'm a huge fan of the simpsons and i was in heaven the first time i visited springfield! the highlight for me is the dining for sure. when it comes to rides, it's a little disappointing the simpsons ride is a bit simple and it's mostly carnival games. T_T" it's also so fun seeing the merch in springfield. there's so many small details from the simpsons series. it gets me every time that BORT is a listed name on all the custom-name merchandise
favorite attraction: i'm more of a fan of walking around springfield and enjoying the theming
favorite snack: just about everything!! i love the krusty burger, duff beer, and the lard lad donut of course!

the amazing adventures of spider-man

i have a lot of memories of this ride as a kid, i think it's one of the best-aging rides. in my childhood, it rarely had any wait but nowadays it seems to be more popular. i think the way this ride incorporates screens is SO well done and i love that it actually uses practical effects. i definitely want to ride this at least once every time i'm at islands of adventure!

i made this mini shrine instead of one about marvel island at large cuz i actually think spider-man is the only decent thing about that area since i'm not a fan of the hulk or the annoying music in marvel island ^_^"

i've loved the jurassic park area of islands of adventure since i was a dinosaur-loving kid. the river adventure is such a special ride, i also remember the triceratops encounter too... nothing beats dino animatronics!

whenever visiting this area, i really notice and admire how many small details there are all over. i also always admire how unchanged parts of jurassic park are. i never get tired of poking around in the jurassic park discovery center. i'm happy knowing this area will stay around for longer with the new velocicoaster which is definitely the most intense roller coaster i've ever been on.

favorite attraction: i'm torn between river adventure and velocicoaster!
favorite snack: the casado burger at the burger digs
