The College Program is perspective. It’s meeting new people from all around the world. It’s bonding with roommates at 1 a.m. at Cosmic Ray’s. It’s skipping down Main Street, arm-in-arm. It’s realizing that although the world is very large, it’s also very small. It’s hearing languages, and eating food, and experiencing culture. It’s trying new things with new people. It’s putting yourself out there. It’s creating lifelong friendships. It’s trusting others with yourself. It’s trusting you with yourself.
The College Program is stress. It’s rude Guests, long shifts, aching feet, and dark circles under your eyes. It’s learning to bite your tongue in difficult situations. It’s perfecting your common courtesy. It’s going out of the way to do something for someone who may not appreciate it, or may not deserve it. It’s watching an hour’s worth of work come down in minutes. It’s swallowing your pride. It’s a million and one things to do, and not enough time to do them. It’s expectations, and self-entitlement, and problem-solving. It’s learning to think on your feet.
The College Program is surprising. It’s being an adult. It’s realizing what you’re actually capable of. It’s pulling yourself up by your bootstraps, and advocating for yourself. It’s trying, and failing, and trying, and failing, and trying again for the amazing chance at success. It’s believing in yourself for the first time. It’s being responsible for your own well-being. It’s learning to love yourself.
The College Program is magic. It’s literally magic. It’s watching kid’s eyes light up when they see Mickey for the first time. It’s older Guests smiling, shedding years off their face and exposing the young at heart within. It’s couples walking slowly, their hands intertwined. It’s Tinkerbell flying during Wishes. It’s little moments. It’s the simple gestures. It’s Mickey gloves, pin trading, Disney pointing, and nametags. It’s wishing people a magical morning/afternoon/evening. It’s telling others that it’s ok to believe. It’s believing yourself.
The Disney College Program is, in a word, amazing.

SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR SHOW ME YOUR WAYS
"no i dont want your fucking autograph do the circle thing"
Even more, look at the first one compared to the second one. In the second one, she can just keep her arm moving in a circular motion and draw one that way. Still very hard but the arm motion would help out a lot. But in that first one…Jesus, she’s kneeling down and twisting her body and wrist and standing up and still drawing it flawlessly!
