Get Yourself A Girl Who Can Do Both

Find someone ambitious, but loves Disney.

Get Yourself A Girl Who Can Do Both

For people who know me personally, know I'm a Disney kid. It's in my blood. It's how I was raised, shout-out to my mom! I mean I even worked at Walt Disney World for crying out loud! Sure I'm 22 going on 23 pushing little kids out of the way to see "Finding Dory," am I ashamed? Of course not. That's my childhood, so back off. I love when people make fun of anyone who's older than 16 who still like Disney. As if it's something we “grow out of”...

I've written about "Peter Pan" before, and it's because as someone in my early 20s who has had a few quarter life crisis—I don't want to grow up! Quite frankly, I don't think anyone actually wants to, it just kind of happens. My ongoing love for Disney keeps me young—I still believe in magic and that dreams can and will come true. Instead of focusing on finding your Prince Charming, focus on yourself first.

It's so important to focus and to only worry about you, especially in your 20s. This is the time where you'll go through friends, boyfriends, and jobs. You're either constantly changing your mind or doubting yourself. Before you can love someone else, you need to love yourself first. The only way to be a boss is to know what you want. Don’t be that girl who just settles down for anyone, and don’t be that girl who doesn’t stick up for herself. Be a girl who can do both: have a love for Disney and get giddy over meeting Pluto, and be a boss who knows what she wants and doesn’t take slack from nobody.

It wasn’t until my 20s that I started fighting for what I wanted. I’m way too driven and ambitious to let someone get in the way of my success. In some ways, people look at it as being a little selfish, and I guess it’s OK to be a little selfish sometimes. I was the kind of person who would do anything and everything for anyone. I put others before me, and that was my mistake—I wasn’t doing enough for me. So what did I do? Broke up with my controlling boyfriend, gave up on toxic friendships, and moved to Disney World just months later to partake in the Disney College Program. Never had I been so happy in my life.

Don't be afraid to take risks and to fight for what you want. Do you think Mulan would have gotten her point across if she didn't take risks? I didn't think so. And that's why Mulan is a boss. Be more like Mulan.

Get yourself a girl (or guy) who can be both driven and ambitious. Someone who isn’t afraid to better themselves, to take a stand. More importantly, get yourself a partner who loves Disney, because we're great.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
