It's OK To Love Disney, Even As An Adult

Disney is a place for all ages, you can dream any dream you want

It's OK To Love Disney, Even As An Adult
Alexis Cable

When my family first went to Walt Disney World, I was only 2. I didn't remember the trip since I was so young but my parents always told me about that first trip. They took me to meet my first character, that character being Minnie Mouse. While meeting her they said that she gave me a kiss on the cheek and I proceeded to walk around the whole time rubbing my cheek because she kissed it. It's a story I only wish I could remember myself.

A few years later when I was 8, my family went on another trip to Walt Disney World. This trip being more memorable for myself since I could actually remember everything from it. I remember how exciting it was to be there and walk down Main Street in Magic Kingdom. I can remember getting a frozen lemonade in Animal Kingdom, that came with a Pluto attached to the straw. I can even remember floating around the lazy river in Blizzard Beach.

Fast forward to many years later. I decided to go to Walt Disney World at 21 for my Spring Break. It just as magical as it was when I went at 8 years old. Nothing had changed when I met Minnie Mouse. I still got butterflies while watching the fireworks. Smiling ear to ear while walking into Magic Kingdom and seeing Cinderella's Castle. The magic was all too real even at 21.

Now I am almost 23 years old. My love for Disney and the parks hasn't changed. The magic never dies for me. I still love seeing all of the characters and riding all of the rides possible while visiting the parks. Hearing Disney music always puts a smile on my face and makes me feel excited.

It's okay to be an adult and to love Disney just as much as you did when you were a kid. So many people are quick to judge adults when they talk about how much they love Disney and love going on trips to Walt Disney World in Florida.

Going to Walt Disney World allows adults to feel magic. It gives us a chance to feel like a kid again. It gives us a chance to relive all of the memories we had while going there at a young age. It gives us a sense of nostalgia. It gives us a chance to get away from the everyday stress of life and work and gives us the chance to have fun and be young for a moment.

With all of the bad happening in the world, Disney gives us a getaway from it all. It fills us with happiness we need. Sometimes we get older and forget that even as a grown-up it's okay to be a kid sometimes. Adults are allowed to love Disney just as much as kids are. Walt Disney didn't create Disney just for kids, he created it for EVERYONE.

As Walt once said, "Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age. dreams are forever".

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.

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.
