Yes, I'm In College And I Still Love All Things Disney

Disney films are meant to appeal to all ages.

Yes, I'm In College And I Still Love All Things Disney

As I'm writing this, the much-anticipated sequel to Disney's The Incredibles is just two days away from release. If you think that I'm not just as excited for this movie as any little kid, you're wrong. In fact, I think the notion that Disney movies are just for kids merely because they're mostly cartoons is ludicrous.

Walt Disney's whole purpose for creating Disneyland in the first place was for children and adults to have something to do together, as opposed to parents just sitting and watching their children play. This idea still stands today, as Disney parks are being marketed to both the young and the young-at-heart. Just like the parks, Disney films are meant to appeal to all ages. I mean, have you heard some of the jokes they manage to slip into those movies? You definitely have to be older to understand those.

Case in point: Earlier this year, I attended a campus screening of Disney's Coco. This was a theater full of college students, and you should have seen some of their reactions to the most intense scenes. They definitely didn't feel like they were too old to spend a Friday night at a "kids movie". That's because Disney movies are way more than just kids movies. They're perfect for the whole family, just as Walt intended them to be.

So if you're just as excited for The Incredibles 2 as I am, but you're worried about looking ridiculous being in a theater with a bunch of little kids, don't worry about it. Besides, those kids weren't even alive when the first movie came out.

How Not To Go Insane During Summer

Holy cow. If you're like me, you are bored out of your mind taking summer classes all the way until August. Then just to come right back and take more classes for the Fall?

It is like I am going insane.


I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

Week One of Being A Freshie Again

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
