There are many different types of graduating seniors: the one going to grad school, the “gap year” friend, etc. Here is what each of your friends is, as defined by Disney.

1. The one who got a full-time offer in August: Lt. Judy Hopps

This friend just really always has their stuff together. They got an offer — probably for a much higher salary than you — right out of their equally impressive internship, and they coast through senior year without a care in the world. They’ve always known what they wanted to do and they were determined to get it done!

2. The one going to grad school: Belle

This is the friend that LOVES SCHOOL SO MUCH. They have been perfectly content spending every day studying and would love for this to be something they do for another one to six years. Most likely, they are still going to get paid less than the average graduate because they’re pursuing their career because of passion rather than financial stability.

3. The one taking a gap year: Moana

They’ve been looking for adventure their entire lives, and are finally taking the chance to go on a life-changing journey of self-discovery in hopes that they will come back and the answer to “what should I do with my life” will be waiting for them.

4. The one going back home: Pacha

Sometimes you just need to take it back to your roots, and this friend, like Pacha, is looking to go home to find comfort. They may have a great paying job, or may just want to take it easy for a while, but they value their family time more than anything else.

5. The one who gets hired at the last minute: Mike Wazowski

This friend is like Mike in college — they aren’t really given any credit when it comes to academics until the last minute when they get their dream job and end up doing terrifically. And just like Mike in the OG Monsters movie, they end up being the star of the show and thrive wherever they are.

6. The one who still doesn't know what they're going to do: Dory

This is the person who everything just always seems to work out for. Like Dory, they’re kind of just floating around, waiting for an opportunity to drift their way. They don’t have a job — or any prospect of one for that matter — but they’ll probably land one a few months after they graduate and will end up being happy.

7. The "ring by spring" couple: Anna and Hans

This couple rushed into the whole “relationship” thing. They are getting married within a year, and have already figured out everything about their lives after they graduate. They seem to have everything figured out and are known in their circle as the “Golden Couple,” for now.

8. The one who JUST decided their major: Rapunzel

This person is pretty scattered, hopping from one major to another until it’s too late to change it again. Don’t worry though, the job that they get will be one they choose out of passion, so their major really won’t have anything to do with it anyway.

9. The one who took a victory lap: Lightning McQueen

This one just wanted to go for a scenic drive rather than a full-on Piston Cup. They stayed in the game a bit longer than most people, but in the end, they are in the same position as anyone else graduating at this time.

10. The one who is taking over the family business: Simba

This friend majored in entrepreneurship and has been mentally checked out of college for at least three years. Like Simba, their path has been laid out for them, so they haven’t really had to worry about anything except getting their diploma.

11. The one with something to prove: Mulan

This is your friend who had the hardest major, took the most challenging electives, and is picking a job because of the high salary. When you ask them how they feel about graduating, they are the “man with a plan” and seem to have no fears about graduating and what it might bring.

12. The one moving to Disneyland: Peter Pan

They took “never grow up” a little too seriously, so instead of getting a normal adult job, they’re doing the Disney College Program until further notice.

Getting Straight A's In College Is Not Worth Failing Your Mental Health

A's are nice, but you are more than a letter.

The idea of getting an A on every paper, every exam, every assignment, seems great. It can be known as a reassurance of our hard work and dedication to our 4+ classes we attend every single day.

Losing sleep, skipping meals, forgetting to drink water, skipping out on time with friends and family; these are the things that can occur when your letter of an A is what you are living for.

You are worth more than the grade letter, or the GPA number on your transcript.

Listen, don't get me wrong, getting A's and B's definitely is something to feel accomplished for. It is the approval that you did it, you completed your class, and your hard work paid off.

But honey, get some sleep.

Don't lose yourself, don't forget who you are. Grades are important, but the true measurement of self-worth and accomplishment is that you tried your best.

Trying your best, and working hard for your goals is something that is A-worthy.

Reserve time for yourself, for your sanity, your health, your mental health.

At the end of the day, grades might look nice on a piece of paper, but who you are and how you represent yourself can be even more honorable.

Host Families Are The Best When Going Abroad

Host families will get you closer to language, culture, food and fun!

Have you ever thought about going abroad? Or maybe you've already decided to go and are dealing with all the paperwork right now? There are so many options to explore a different culture and various perspectives on life. You can go abroad and study at a foreign university. If you're not interested in studying, you can apply for a job and gain first working experience abroad. Also, you can do an internship in a different country, or work as a volunteer in a help organization. So many options. But they have one thing in common: A host family.

A host family is a family who takes in young people, who left their country to work or study abroad, for a certain time. Obviously, a host family is not a must. If you don't feel it, you can rent an apartment and that's totally fine. However, I would like to tell you today why I think a host family is one of the best things while going abroad.

First of all, you learn the foreign language a lot better. I mean, that's one of the reasons for going abroad, right? You want to improve that language you've been studying at home. And there is no better way than to speak it every day with native speakers. And that's what your host family offers you. Living together, communication is a necessity, and thus the best motivation to improve your language skills!

Second, when living with a host family you get to try the traditional dishes of the country. In my opinion, the cuisine is a very important part of a country's culture. It's thus a huge difference if you go abroad and keep on cooking your stuff from home, or whether you experience a new culture through their nutrition. Take the chance and get to know new recipes, new spices, and new dishes. It's so exciting!

Third, a host family is the best place to get to know the culture of a foreign country. You'll learn all about their holidays, celebrations and traditions not simply by listening about them but by living them! Your host parents will make you part of the preparations and you get to ask questions throughout the whole experience. There is no better option to get to learn about a culture!

Forth, and probably the most important one, a host family is a trusted friend in a foreign world. When you're leaving home you expect everything in the new country to work as easy and usual as you know it from back home. But that is often not the case. And very often you're ending up in a chaos of opening bank accounts, applying for new phone numbers, looking for apartments, figuring out a hundred things for your studies, … all by your own. A host family is there for you if you need help and assists you during your first days, weeks, sometimes even months of your stay abroad.

If you want to apply for a semester or internship abroad and didn't consider a host family at all, do it now. Those of you who already have been through the experience of going abroad and living with a host family know what I'm talking about. I definitely can say that my host families became friends for life and I'm infinitely grateful for the help and warmth they offered me.
