6 Disney Movies to Watch While Bored

6 Disney Movies to Watch While Bored

6 Thoughts I had while re-watching all the classic Disney Movies

During this week, I have been back at school. And while most college students consider the first week of classes "syllabus week," for us here at VMI, this week is Matriculation Week.

I return this week and for some upperclassmen like me, there is not a lot for me to do. Every day I have been meeting up with the same group of friends to watch Disney movies. Here are the discoveries we have found with being bored and enjoying the mind of Disney.

1. Aladdin

This movie is a classic! As a kid you enjoyed this movie, but as an adult it is even more fun. I re-watched this for the first time in a long time, which made me realize that this movie has so much sarcasm in it. I loved it! Robin Williams brings a lot of character to the genie.

2. Tangled

This movie is so cute with clever songs to sing a long! It is a great romantic movie to pass the time with.

3. Frozen

THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST MOVIES DISNEY HAS MADE! It is a great movie for sing a longs and for powerful uplifting moments. Olaf brings a smile to everyone's face to make the whole audience happier.

4. Princess and the Frog

I actually had never seen this movie until this year. It was the first American princess. I loved the jazzy soundtrack with some typical Disney talking animals. This was the first Disney princess to really show that hard work can pay off. Also, Tianna shows that an independent woman doesn't need a man to achieve a goal, but it is nice to have one by the side.

5. The Lion King

The Lion King is a great movie for everyone. It has a little bit of everything with action, comedy, tragedy and love. It is loosely based off Hamlet.

6. The Emperor's New Groove

A funny movie that everyone forgets about.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

4 Reasons Hannah Brown Is The Perfect Choice For The Bachelorette

She's here for the right reasons.


Ah, yes. The Bachelor has officially concluded and it's time for The Bachelorette to begin her journey. On the finale of The Bachelor, Chris Harrison, host of the franchise, announced the next bachelorette, and while many were thrilled, others had some harsh words to say.

I am here to say that Hannah B may be HANNAH BEAST, but she is rightfully here to find her one true love, and here are some ways she has proved just that.

She broke down into tears when Chris Harrison gave her the news. 

Chris Harrison FaceTimed Hannah B to inform her of the exciting news, and although viewers could tell she was excited, her emotional state proved just how much Hannah B wants to find her person and how deeply she trusts the show to help her in her search to find the man of her dreams.

She's not afraid to be herself. 

For those who watched this past season of The Bachelor know that Hannah B did not hold back. Throughout the show, she had to stand up for herself multiple times and had to face the drama that pertained to her past pageant career. And through each episode, she never once hid her personality or where she came from, that's exactly the type of woman The Bachelorette needs to carry their show. A confident woman who knows her worth and isn't afraid to stand up for yourself.

She's not perfect and doesn't try to act like she is in the slightest. 

Throughout this past season of The Bachelor, I continuously saw myself in Hannah B. From her trouble at forming words and explaining her feelings to trying her best to make light of the stressful moments, Hannah B definitely proved she is human, and humans are not perfect. Her most recent mistake was at the finale of The Bachelor when she actually met some of her guys for the upcoming season, and when giving one of the men a rose (Cam), she forgot to ask the big question, "Will you accept this rose?" But of course, she laughed it off and kept on going, and I absolutely adore her for that.

She knows what she wants in a man. 

On the night Colton decided to end things with Hannah B, she gave a statement that I believe every woman should stand by. She said, "I don't want you to keep me around because I want someone who thinks I'm great and thinks of me and only wants me." When leaving, although she cried and showed emotion, viewers could see just how strong she was by the way she spoke about her deserving better and someone who is all in with her. She carried herself magnificently well, and I can't wait for her to bring that girl power to this season of The Bachelorette.

The Bachelorette is set to premiere May 13, 2019, on ABC. GO HANNAH BEAST!
