To My Family I Left At Walt Disney World

Because you were more than just a friend

To My Family I Left At Walt Disney World
Nick Nielsen

I hope everyone is doing well wherever you may be. I don’t go a day without thinking about the times I had at Walt Disney World and wouldn’t trade those moments for anything else. I constantly think about the memories that were made and they run through my head every single day. I chuckle at the laughs that were shared and try to tell coworkers, family, and friends here about those stories and they will never understand. I would never have gotten the chance to meet all of you incredible people if I didn’t take the jump and live in Orlando for a few months. I simply wanted you all to know that the memories I made with you are not forgotten, but rather they are remembered. I miss having moments like these.

I will never forget late night Denny’s, or Steak and Shake meals til 4 am, fire alarms going off at 2 am, going to Club Villain, jamming out to some BMend, watching you drip your ice cream sandwich in front of the entire Jungle Book: Alive With Magic line, pin trading like bosses, riding on Dinosaur with you for your first time on it, laughing about the fact that I didn’t know the sound of a rooster being from Iowa, coming back from Clearwater Beach looking like a tomato, eating together at Rainforest Café, crying during Fantasmic, enjoying the music at Jellyrolls, jamming to ‘Work From Home’ because that was the song of my program, going to see Beyoncé and Rihanna, and simply knowing more about you all. I thank you all for making my program one to remember.

Brb, I’m now crying.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
