We're going to Disney World!

What To Expect When Visiting Disney This Summer

This past week, my family and I went to Disney World. This is for the first time we've been in a few years and the first time we've done anything like this since COVID-19. While we were aware of all the new procedures Disney put in place, that didn't prepare us for what it would be like once we got into the parks. Overall though, it was a great trip but here are a few things to keep in mind and look forward to if you plan on visiting the Disney parks in the upcoming summer months.

1. Getting hot a lot quicker

As of right now, you are required to wear your masks from when you step out of your car on Disney property to when you get back into your car at the end of your day (unless you are eating, drinking or taking a stationary photo). While this is important in order to keep everyone safe, it also means you get a lot hotter in the Florida heat a lot faster.

2. Fighting for shade

Another procedure put in place by Disney was to expand the line queues to accommodate for social distancing. Once again while this is important to keep people safe, it often means you find yourself in the sun more than you ordinarily would. Hopefully, within the upcoming weeks Disney adds more fans and umbrellas in these areas to provide more shade from the sun.

3. Shorter lines

One of the biggest upsides to the new procedures is having less people inside the parks at a time. Since there are less people in there, you can expect shortened the wait times for most rides which allows your family to experience more throughout your day in the park.

4. All of the tan lines

Let's be honest, if you're planning on spending all day in the sun you were probably already going to leave with a sunburn and some new tan lines. Now if you want to avoid a mask tan line to go with them, I suggest applying sunscreen to your face frequently if you don't already.

5. New experiences

Although Disney might look a little difference since your last visit. It doesn't make it any less magical. Be open to the new experiences they are offering to you and just enjoy your time in the parks!

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
