I hate how people treat the old Disney princesses saying that they’re bad role models. People act like they’re worthless because they didn’t travel across the ocean to fight a sea monster or don’t have icy superpowers. Sure, their goal is love but what’s wrong with that? Is it wrong to be stereotypically feminine? Whether you’re a boy or a girl it’s ok to dream about true love and it’s ok to be kind and innocent. I love that we’re teaching kids to be independent, but nothing’s wrong with being a little girly.
I’ve been thinking for a while about quitting the pre-med route and switching to music composition since music is my passion and this pre-med thing is really toxic to my mental health. Disney soundtracks are so beautiful and they keep me motivated and remind me why I switched paths! I can’t help but feel the music every time I listen to Disney music, especially the Tangled and Sleeping Beauty soundtracks.
I’ve always had a deep love for Disney ever since I was little. The movies, the parks, everything about it makes me feel comfort. And I’ve realized that I don’t just love the stories, but the art behind them as well. Sleeping Beauty is my favorite movie, and while people think it’s boring, I think it’s the most beautiful. The style and the characters are absolutely amazing and being an art major, I’ve found I can look deeper into how a movie is conveyed and it makes it so much more breathtaking
Sometimes I feel like I need some deep reason for a princess to be my favorite. Like when people say that Cinderella or Rapunzel are their favorite because they have similar family situations and they see themselves in Cinderella/Rapunzel. Obviously this is a completely valid reason for a princess being your favorite, but I feel like when I tell someone that Aurora is my favorite and my reason is just that I like her it isn’t valid.
When I was little and I listened to Tchaikovsky’s ballet Sleeping Beauty for the first time I thought that Tchaikovsky stole the music from Disney and my mom had to explain to me that Tchaikovsky wrote the ballet Sleeping Beauty way before Disney was even born.
I lost my “best friend” a few months ago to a boy who is a bad influence on her in more ways than one. She refused to listen to any advice and threw all of her friends under the bus. I’ve been turning to Disney for help again, to escape all the heartbreak and hurt. Winnie the Pooh movies and Sleeping Beauty, my favorites, have never failed to cheer me up. I just wish I had a best friend who I can count on and loves Disney as much as I do…I’m just tired, yah know? I’ve already lost so many…
