Honestly, whenever I have an anxiety attack, listening to Vocaloid covers of Disney songs helps me calm down. Especially Kaito and Meiko’s cover of “Beauty and the Beast”! It’s fun to see two things I love (Vocaloid and Disney) combined

Inside Out hit harder home for me than I tho…

Inside Out hit harder home for me than I thought it would. My whole life I’d been subject to moving six times to all different states. I related so well to the feelings Riley had, and Disney explaining them more to me, even though I was an adult when the film came out, helped everything piece together and make more sense. I finally had some form of closure, and affirmation that it was okay to feel.

I actually really like dark imagery in cartoons, and one of the movie scenes that inspired that was the scene where Snow White is in the woods and running away from all the freaky things she’s imagining. I’d play out that scene along with the movie as a kid, and when I grew up it helped mold my rather morbid interest in scary animation.

The relationship with Fixit Felix and Sgt. Calhoun means a lot to me. I’m 6 feet tall and 260lbs, and my boyfriend is 5’6 and 145lbs. We definitely get stared at when we hold hands and walk down the street, and I used to feel insecure about it. Seeing a small guy and tall woman get together on screen almost never happens, and even though it’s a cartoon it made me feel special. My man and I have been together 8 years…size really doesn’t matter to us anyway!

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.

Seeing scenes where a character is cruel to their mother, like in Gargoyles when Angela tells Demona she hates her, or in Brave when Merida tears the family tapestry Elinor was working on and says she’d rather be dead than be like her, made me feel bad about the times when I got into fights with my own mother.

When I was going through a depression, I would Listen to “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You” because it made me feel like I could defeat the world

There’s a video on YouTube of Toni Braxton singing as Belle on the Rosie O’Donnell show. Seeing it really inspired me, because it showed that a person of color could play Belle. I’m half-white but I have a lot of ethnic features from my mom that might make others think I couldn’t play her. Now I’m more determined than ever to reach for that dream.

My favorite Disney song is Once Upon a Dream. I have a crush on this guy and he seemed perfect for me, we had so much in common. Anyway I had dreams about him, nothing bad just us being cute together. When I told him he respectfully declined. I guess visions are seldom all they seem.

Two years ago I took my twin daughters to see Disney Stars on Ice. I was hoping to see Tiana, as she is my daughter’s favorite princess. Imagine my disappointment when her portion (after intermission no less!) with Naveen felt like it was only five minute long. The other princesses portions had long and involved scenes from their movie, and even included snow for Elsa. Tiana’s was just a short dance that was not from her movie and then she was gone. They could have at least done her ending song.
