How My Disney College Program Roommates Became My Best Friends
Kaitlyn Nauth

When you hear the words “college roommates” a couple of things come to mind.

You are either plagued with fear and horror at the thought of having to live with someone you are in every way not compatible with or you have the happiest memories with a group of people you can call your friends. I got lucky with having an amazing group of people to live with!

Having never lived with roommates before I was excited and terrified to be living with roommates for the first time. Being awkward and shy I expected the process to be a lot harder than it was. Through the power of Facebook and Disney obsessions, I had all five of my roommates within a week of my acceptance letter.

In the Disney College Program, a common way for many CP’s to find roommates is by filling out roommate surveys on Facebook. Through these surveys, you come to find the things you have in common with other CP’s. This is helpful so you can request to live together when it comes time to put in requests for housing. On Facebook, I found one group that was specific for anyone 21 and older. This helped make the process easier for me since I was 23 when I did my program.

I spent months talking and planning with my roommates. We spoke every day leading up to move-in day. We all got along so well. It felt too good to be true. A lot of things in my life tend to be too good to be true which is usually a red flag. This time it was different.

As time went by four out of the six of us grew closer to each other since our schedules worked out to be able to spend time together. From going to parks to staying up late watching YouTube videos and ordering Domino’s we made memories that make me so happy to have.

When I went to work I would hear from other CP’s how horrible their roommate experiences were. Most of them were either fighting or moving apartments due to roommate disputes. I felt bad for them. I was so lucky that I got to go home to a group of people that I didn’t need to worry about avoiding or feel miserable around. While some of us had our quirks we were all able to get along. Just because we all got along so well doesn’t mean life was perfect. We were always fair with each other even when the worst offense was leaving the kitchen a little messy for too long.

The three roommates I spent most of my time with really helped make my program into the amazing experience it was. In the six months I have been home I have talked to these girls almost every single day. I am looking forward to returning to Disney for the first time since my program has ended, but most of all I can’t wait for the four of us to reunite in the place that brought us all together. These girls have truly become my best friends.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

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.

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.

11256

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.
