The Top Five Rides At Walt Disney World

My family is one of those totally crazy families that live and breathe Disney. We recently took a trip to Disney, so my sisters and I created a list of our top five Disney World Rides!

5. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

I was always scared of up-side-down roller coasters, but Rockin’ Roller Coaster is so smooth and fast, I barely even noticed I was up-side-down! It’s a short ride, but is definitely worthy of being on this list because it’s fast and fun and the introduction by Aerosmith is hilarious!

4.The Haunted Mansion

What a classic. The Haunted Mansion was always my favorite ride as a kid because I hated scary movies, but Disney hit the nail on the head and perfectly combined spooky and funny with this ride. So, 7-year-old Catherine was spooked just enough to still be having fun!

3. Soarin’/Pirates of the Caribbean

I love, love, love Soarin’. You literally feel like you are hang-gliding. Disney even went to the extent of creating the smells of the landscapes you’re soaring over. If you’re in Epcot, you have to stop by Soarin’.

However, my older sister INSISTED the Pirates of the Caribbean ride to be a part of this list. It’s definitely a fun ride with an appropriate drop in the middle, so I guess I’ll let it slide into third place with Soarin’.

2. Jungle Cruise

If you’ve never experienced the Jungle Cruise, you HAVE to go the next time you’re in Magic Kingdom. The Jungle Cruise a hilarious boat ride through obvious animatronic animals. It’s also really shady and cool- perfect for a mid-afternoon ride.

1. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

Thunder Mountain was my first ever roller coaster. I’m not a huge fan of roller coasters, but Thunder Mountain takes the cake out of all the coasters I’ve ever been on. This ride is adorable with its Western train theme and so much fun! It has the perfect amount of (not too big) drops and daring curves. Thunder Mountain definitely belongs at number one in my book.

Honorable Mention: Carousel of Progress

I used to hate this ride as a kid, but now I feel like I have to put Carousel of Progress somewhere on this list because I absolutely appreciate it for its efficiency. This ride is the rotating building in Tommorowland that takes the audience through the changes in progress over time. The rotating audience seats a ton of people! It’s also really cold inside and the seats are always comfy… definitely a plus worth mentioning!

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.

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.
