OK, so I may or may not be a millennial, the generation cutoff year is not quite clear. But what is clear is that I'm a childless young adult who just got back from Disney World!

I had the best time ever! I went on the Haunted Mansion twice, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train roller coaster, Frozen Ever After, and so many other rides. Not only that, I also drank my way through Epcot.

It was so great to be able to do what I want when I wanted to.

Now I understand that there is a different type of "magic" that a family feels when they see Disney World through a child's eye, but trust me, Disney does not lose its magic just because you go without children.

In fact, some elements are more magical when you're an adult, such as interacting with the characters.

When you're with a child, they might get starstruck because they are meeting their idol, and there might not be a lot of talking. Yes, it's adorable, but it also takes some of the fun out of the situation.

When you're an adult meeting the characters, you can ask the most ridiculous questions and see what their responses are.

I asked Snow White which of the seven dwarfs was the messiest. It was a silly question, but it was fun for me and most likely fun for Snow White to think of a clever answer. (By the way, she said they are all pretty messy, but the messiest would have to be Grumpy.)

Don't forget that going without children means sleeping in and staying up late.

While all the families are running to the park for rope drop, you can sleep in and show up to the park when they are all headed back to the resort for nap time.

Then, when there are those late extra magic hours, you don't have to worry about a sleepy child who can't stay awake that late at night. You can stay in the Magic Kingdom until midnight because you only have YOU to worry about.

I know there are so many wonderful reasons to go to Disney with children, but I promise you that going to Disney without children is just as fun.

So, if you're able to, go do it! You won't regret it.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
