Yes I'm An Adult, Yes I Still Love Disneyland

For those who may think that there's an age limit on fun

Yes I'm An Adult, Yes I Still Love Disneyland

Every year since I can remember my family and I have been taking day trips to Disneyland. We hold so many memories there and can’t stop visiting every chance we get. Now, a 21-year-old is the youngest child in the family, but we still have just as much fun as we did when that 21-year-old was 2. You may shake your head and say we are all too old to go, but we would very quickly disagree, and here’s why.

Disneyland is a family resort, and yes, even though there are no kids in the family anymore, we are still a family. Therefore, we’re entitled to go, so why not go?! It’s something we love to do as a family and a family activity we can’t get enough of. You may roll your eyes when we walk by since we are a bunch of old farts running around Disneyland, but we’re having fun and doing no harm, so what’s it to you?

Mickey Mouse technically makes the rules and he never told me that there was an age limit, at least not that I can remember. So what we are a bunch of giant kids, but as long as the mouse doesn’t kick us out, we’re not going anywhere!

California Adventure is the place for big kids at Disneyland, it’s begging them to come over and play. Wanna know why? California Adventure serves alcohol! This just makes families with no kids have an even better time at The Happiest Place on Earth, and it definitely helps whenever you realize you’re too old to run around an amusement park all day. Mickey Mouse wouldn’t have put alcohol in the park if he didn’t want the older kids to have fun too.

Finally, Peter Pan said it himself when he said, “never grow up”. If Walt and Mickey condone messages like this, we’re never going to grow up and keep going to Disneyland as long as we can. We love this place and we technically act like children while we’re there, so don’t turn your nose up to us. We love this place just as much as your 4-year-old, and I’m sure your 4-year-old will still love it when they’re old too, so don’t tell anyone they’re ever too old to go to Disneyland.

Disneyland holds a special place in a lot of peoples’ hearts. Whether they were there the first day it opened or hold special memories there, one thing stands, Walt Disney made a fantastic place for everyone to enjoy. He never made rules on how old you had to be to have fun, to act like a child again, or to celebrate the happiest moments and memories at The Happiest Place on Earth. It all started with a mouse, and until that mouse says so, us oldies won’t stop visiting and loving Disneyland.

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
