Disney Movies Have Given Me A Way To Understand Myself On A Deeper Level, And For That I Will Always Hold Them Dear

Disney movies have provided me with a way to heal from the past and provide me with a deeper understanding of myself.

Disney Movies Have Given Me A Way To Understand Myself On A Deeper Level, And For That I Will Always Hold Them Dear

Disney movies have had a huge impact on my life. I still remember the first time I had ever watched a Disney movie and falling in love. Ever since then, Disney movies have held a special place in my heart. Every one of them is unique, and different from anything else I've ever seen. It's not just about the characters and music but it's the deeper meaning in those movies that just has made them become something I hold so dear.

Disney has allowed me to form personal connections with every movie I see.

Disney movies have always been a way for me to connect to something on a personal level. As a child, my Grandpa introduced Disney movies to me, the first being Snow White. He knew my love for Disney was so personal to me that he had planned to take me to Disney World. But my Grandpa passed away from cancer before he could ever take me. His death devastated me on a deeper level, and to one that I have still not fully healed from today. But I find comfort in Disney movies, feeling as if he's with me every time I turn on a movie on. And that alone gives me a strong connection to Disney.

I have a tendency to emotionally connect to what I watch. There's always some sort of message, theme, song, character, etc. in each movie that I develop some sort of connection with.

Disney movies have been a source of healing for me.

The movie Coco helped me cope with and understand the idea of death, which is still something I have struggled with since my Grandpa's passing. I know it seems strange that movies and characters can be a way to heal from something that is hurting you, but Disney feels like one of the only outlets I have to understand myself.

I've seen Frozen 2 recently (I highly recommend it), and there was once again something about this movie that was able to connect with me on a very personal level. If you've seen Frozen, or even heard of it, you're probably aware that Elsa has mystical ice powers that she has to keep in control so as not to be feared by those around her. Because of these powers, she's always felt different from everyone else, almost disconnected from those around her. But in the sequel, they gave Elsa a new sense of strength and independence that connected with me. If you haven't seen the movie, just listen to the song "Show Yourself" and you'll be able to feel her new sense of confidence. This has not only given me a new appreciation Elsa but also for Disney as a whole.

I connect with Disney movies in such a special way that no other movies can do. There is not one Disney movie that I've watched that hasn't made me cry. Something about Disney movies has always moved me in a personal way that I will always hold dear.

These movies help me to understand myself and provide a way for me to heal from pain, and I'll forever be appreciative that I can always turn to Disney.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
