Growing Up With Disney Channel

18 shows that defined my childhood.

Growing Up With Disney Channel

Disney Channel was a big part of my childhood. I watched it often on Saturday mornings and with my older sister after school. No other channel's content was as hilarious and meaningful as Disney Channel's. I learned life lessons from talking otters to boys that lived in a hotel. No matter the Disney Channel show, it was bound to be great, but the shows below are the ones that I will remember for a long time.

Early Childhood:

1. "Bear in the Big Blue House"

This show used to be on at 5 AM and sometimes when I was little, I would purposely wake up that early just to watch it. Sorry, Mom.

2. "Madeline"

3. "Out of the Box"

This show made me want to build a house out of boxes, but mine never turned out as cool at theirs.

4. "Rolie Polie Olie"

What is cuter than a family of robots? Nothing.

5. "PB&J Otter"

Early Elementary School:

6. "Even Stevens"

7. "The Proud Family"

8. "Lizzie McGuire"

Lizzie McGuire was my role model, and I wouldn't mind having a cartoon character of myself to give me advice!

9. "Kim Possible"

Kim Possible is cooler than me, and I accept that.

10. "Lilo and Stitch: The Series"

I remember being so happy that there was going to be a TV show after the movie premiered!

Mid-Elementary School:

11. "That's So Raven"

I loved this crazy family.

12. "Phil of the Future"

13. "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody"

Boys that lived in a hotel. No further explanation is needed.

14. "Hannah Montana"

This was definitely the greatest Disney Channel show. Girl by day, pop sensation by night; she really did have the "Best of Both Worlds."

Late Elementary School:

15. "Cory in the House"

The era of spin-offs began with this show. It was a really cool concept, but I always found myself missing Raven.

16. "Phineas and Ferb"

"There's 104 days of summer vacation..."

17. "Wizards of Waverly Place"

If this show was still on, I would probably still watch it.

18. "The Suite Life on Deck"

This was another spin-off, and by this point, Zack and Cody were in high school. It was strange but I loved it.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
