Millennials To Be Banned From Disney World, Why?

You're not entitled to everything because it annoys you, Karen.

Millennials To Be Banned From Disney World, Why?

Recently, I opened up my Facebook to see a news article about a mother trying to get all childless Millennials banned from Disney World. [See article here]

First, I would like to address how absolutely ridiculous this entire thing is. Karen, bless your heart but no one is listening to you so you might as well quit while you're ahead.

Let's take this bit by bit.

First, your outcry of "People without CHILDREN need to be BANNED!!", should be re-evaluated. In saying this, you are essentially saying that Disney World is no longer what Walt Disney himself intended which was to create the happiest place on Earth, regardless of race, gender or age.

Second, I understand that your irritation stems from your 3-year-old having a public tantrum over not being able to wait in a long line for a pretzel. Understand this, a 3-year-old is just that. THEY ARE 3. Your son does not understand the concept of not getting ahead of others to get what he wants and probably does not understand the concept of waiting in an extensive line because it's what you're supposed to do. Children know what they want and in most cases, they do their best to get it. Children will cry. Children will throw tantrums. It is no one's fault but if your irritation stems from the fact that you said 'no' and your child threw a fit and you wanted to appease him, that one, my dear, is all on you.

Yes, younger people may have a connection with Disney that you might not have had. However, it's because we grew up with the franchise booming and being given the Cinderella birthday parties and Harry Potter wands.

Now that Disney owns Star Wars and remaking the movies we so loved as kids, what else did you expect? I, myself, am a huge Harry Potter fan and would love to see the magic of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It doesn't make me horrible because I don't want to bring a child with me. It makes me 19-years-old and wanting to reach my childhood dream of walking through Hogsmeade.

From the time you are born to the time you die, you are welcome at Disney World. It would be stupid to think otherwise. Gearing an entire franchise this successful to children only would be its downfall.

Adults have just grown children, after all.

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.

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.
