“Binging With Babish” did an episode where they made Kronk’s spinach puffs from “The Emperor’s New Groove”. I wish I could make them for dinner one day when I have guests over.

I keep on having dreams that Milo and Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire are my parents, and they’re such nice dreams. I always feel so loved and cared for.

I can’t listen to the song Reflection from Mulan anymore because it reminds me too much about how I’ll always be a failure in the eyes of my father, since I want to be a writer and he always pushed me to be an engineer.

My daughter’s favorite movie was Rapunzel. We used to watch it after her chemotherapy sessions and she’d ask me to sing the songs in the car sometimes. After she lost her battle with cancer this winter, nothing breaks as instantly as the healing incantation song. “Bring back what once was mine” makes me cry to type, let alone hear. I’ll never watch this movie again.

Elsa’s design makes me feel better about having a round face.

My stepfather passed away a few days ago, and I was closer to him than I am with my bio father. I’ve just been a huge mess lately and the one thing that’s helped me cope is watching Disney movies specifically ones that involve the characters who lose a parent or go throughout the movie without one like Frozen, Cinderella, Beauty & The Beast, Aladdin, etc. It may not seem like much, but with my loss, it’s the only thing I have right now.

The 2016 US election was hard on me. When I heard “I Am Moana”, it gave me confidence to go on and face whatever adversity came to me.

I relate a lot with “Reflection” because of the fact that I am constantly disappointing my parents, specifically my dad. No matter what I say or do, the tiniest of my mistakes outweigh the things I do right and I feel like I truly never will pass for the perfect daughter no matter how hard I try. Listening to the song brings me comfort because I know Mulan feels the same way.

I remember watching “Black Panther” the first time it premiered and as a dark skinned, Ghanaian woman, I cried. I finally saw Africa depicted in a powerful and positive light, free from the effects of colonialism, with characters that look like me having motivations beyond the portrayal of “black pain” and stereotypes on screen. I was finally seeing beautiful dark skinned girls being portrayed as queens, scientists, spies, and warriors because dark girls don’t get a lot of positive portrayals.

I’m going to Disneyland next year and I’m so so excited about meeting Rapunzel. She really helped me discover that I am an artist at heart, and has also helped me be a bit more outgoing with people. I cannot wait to see her in Disneyland to give her a drawing and express myself to her.
