Vlogging on the Disney College Program

Can't decide if you want to vlog on your Disney College Program? Here's why I recommend it and some advice!

Vlogging on the Disney College Program
Missy Hargrove

The Disney College Program is one of the most exciting things to happen in my life. And the memories I make on the program are ones I hold dear to my heart. On this program, you learn a lot about the company and as well as yourself, and sometimes it changes you (for the better). Before I arrived for my first program, I started watching vlogs from current CPs (term for college program participants.) I mostly watched Sarah Bellin’s vlogs, (if you haven’t, check out her vlogs! ) I love her vlogs. And it was then of course I decided that I was going to vlog my program. What started out as just doing what your typical CP does turned into confidence, fun, inspiring, and capturing memories of a lifetime so I can go back and watch whenever I need to.

My first program, I started to vlog but didn’t vlog that well. I only had maybe and vlogs. I gave up in the program and now I just re-watch my three vlogs and my former roommate Alecia’s vlogs, and some of my former roommate Katherine’s vlogs. (AleciaTakesDisney and KatherineDoesDCP). I wish I had vlogged more, but I don’t dwell on that.

Now on my second program, I have been more consistent on my vlogs and better at it but I’m still slacking. It is now April, and my last vlog posted was in February. OOPS. Here’s the thing, on the DCP it is really hard to keep up with vlogging and editing as well. I have a lot of vlogs that just need to be edited and posted. But I have been working so much that I am tired and don’t want to do it. Or caught up in the moment of the program where I blow it off and run to a park or go to Taco Bell at 1 am before work the next morning. Life happens. I forget. This is what I am working on. But I will get to my vlogs when I can, I’m in no rush.

Here’s my advice to any vloggers or future vloggers for the Disney College Program, don’t worry if you get behind. Try to vlog everything. But if you miss something, don’t dwell on it! Try to vlog as much as you can, but do not live through your vlog. Sometimes you have to put the camera down and enjoy the program. I love being able to go back and watch my vlogs and remember but I also like going to the parks and just enjoying it. Vlogging is supposed to be fun, but can become stressful if you begin to live through the vlog and put pressure on yourself with posting your vlogs. I will continue to vlog, and I highly recommend it to DCP participants. You’ll love going back and watching them when your program is over. You will also begin to see how much you have changed. My first vlog, I didn’t know what to say. I was always picky on what I said. How I said it. What I did. Now I sound more confident, I go with the flow. And I let loose and have fun. Vlogging has helped my self-esteem and honestly my speech in general.

Vlog your program and have fun. Don’t stress if you miss something. If you forget to vlog, or if you feel behind on your vlogs. Relax, get to the vlogging when you feel like it. You can take a day off or two of vlogging. Post the next vlog when you can, but don’t stress yourself out. Have fun. Make memories. Enjoy your Disney College Program.

An open letter to my father

What you did sounds dumb to me

An open letter to my father
The Truth About My Parents' Divorce

Considering im 18 now & you're one of the best men i've ever met since you have a child; me. I want you to know that I love you, more than anyone, I love you. I don't forgive you for the way you hurt my mother. I'm hurt because you broke our family. Thing went down hill the day you found Laquita. You we're distant & shortly after my mother turned into the coldest, saddest women to walk past me. She's my best friend & so are you. Not one day goes by where I don't wonder what she did wrong. How on earth could you trade your family & the women who loved you unconditionally for a home wrecker? Sounds dumb to me.

Is God Reckless?

Exploring the controversy behind the popular worship song "Reckless Love"

Is God Reckless?

First things first I do not agree with people getting so caught up in the specific theology of a song that they forget who they are singing the song to. I normally don't pay attention to negative things that people say about worship music, but the things that people were saying caught my attention. For example, that the song was not biblical and should not be sung in churches. Worship was created to glorify God, and not to argue over what kind of theology the artist used to write the song. I was not made aware of the controversy surrounding the popular song "Reckless Love" by Cory Asbury until about a week ago, but now that I am aware this is what I have concluded.The controversy surrounding the song is how the term reckless is used to describe God's love. This is the statement that Cory Asbury released after many people questioned his theology regarding his lyrics. I think that by trying to clarify what the song was saying he added to the confusion behind the controversy.This is what he had to say,
"Many have asked me for clarity on the phrase, "reckless love". Many have wondered why I'd use a "negative" word to describe God. I've taken some time to write out my thoughts here. I hope it brings answers to your questions. But more than that, I hope it brings you into an encounter with the wildness of His love.When I use the phrase, "the reckless love of God", I'm not saying that God Himself is reckless. I am, however, saying that the way He loves, is in many regards, quite so. What I mean is this: He is utterly unconcerned with the consequences of His actions with regards to His own safety, comfort, and well-being. His love isn't crafty or slick. It's not cunning or shrewd. In fact, all things considered, it's quite childlike, and might I even suggest, sometimes downright ridiculous. His love bankrupted heaven for you. His love doesn't consider Himself first. His love isn't selfish or self-serving. He doesn't wonder what He'll gain or lose by putting Himself out there. He simply gives Himself away on the off-chance that one of us might look back at Him and offer ourselves in return.His love leaves the ninety-nine to find the one every time."
Some people are arguing that song is biblical because it makes reference to the scripture from Matthew 28:12-14 and Luke 15. Both of these scriptures talk about the parable of the lost sheep and the shepherd. The shepherd symbolizes God and the lost sheep are people that do not have a relationship with God. On the other hand some people are arguing that using the term reckless, referring to God's character is heretical and not biblical. I found two articles that discuss the controversy about the song.The first article is called, "Reckless Love" By Cory Asbury - "Song Meaning, Review, and Worship Leading Tips." The writer of the article, Jake Gosselin argues that people are "Making a mountain out of a molehill" and that the argument is foolish. The second article, "God's Love is not Reckless, Contrary to What You Might Sing" by author Andrew Gabriel argues that using the term reckless is irresponsible and that you cannot separate Gods character traits from God himself. For example, saying that God's love is reckless could also be argued that God himself is reckless. Reckless is typically not a word that someone would use to describe God and his love for us. The term reckless is defined as (of a person or their actions) without thinking or caring about the consequences of an action. However, Cory Asbury is not talking about a person, he is talking about God's passionate and relentless pursuit of the lost. While I would not have chosen the word reckless, I understand what he was trying to communicate through the song. Down below I have linked two articles that might be helpful if you are interested in reading more about the controversy.
