Wanna Join A Disneyland Gang?

If you ever seen groups of people in denim vests and patches... don't worry, they aren't a gang.

Wanna Join A Disneyland Gang?

Now normally this isn’t a thing at Walt Disney World. Since it basically originated from California, hence why there isn’t much of it in Orlando. You may wonder what I’m talking about, since I said that Disneyland basically has more than Walt Disney World. No I’m not actually here to talk about gangs. I’m talking about those groups of people around the parks with the denim vests filled with customized buttons, Disney-inspired patches and pins galore. They’re mistaken for gangs but really they’re just a sub-culture of diehard Disney fans. They don’t like being associated with the gang term, because they are really a social club. Just groups of people who come together through their love for Disney. Majority of them are Annual Passholders for Disneyland. Considering a good amount of them are based in Southern California. They're easily recognizable by their looks, inspired by motorcycle clubs with the denim vests and patches. They adhere to the park rules and corporate with Cast Members.



Since Disneyland has a really high percentage of Annual Passholders because of the existing Southern California level of Annual Passes. A lot of them come with friends and family alike, trying to spread the cheer and Disney magic to the public. A lot of them aren’t cast members but they do their best to include everyone and make them feel like they belong at the parks. They help clean up the parks, spread magic by giving out buttons, stickers and other random Disney-inspired accessories to guests of the parks. That also includes giving out paper fast passes. They also attend charity events, help run non-profit organizations and raise money for the needy. Not all groups are the same, some do charity events, some just work with non-profits. Not everyone has to be in southern California in order to join one. They’re just more of a family group that has their own little patches or symbols that just signifies their group. There are more always popping up every single year, and I think it’s a great way to show your love for Disney and care for the parks as well as a cool thing to join with friends and family.

The Disneyland Social Clubs are just one of the many ways that guests show their passion for Disney.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
