Emma Sudderick learns from the lessons of her past.
Coming to University is a massive change. It’s a hurdle, a milestone, not least because during your time at University you will disembark from the voyage through your teens and become a dreaded adult. That means you are faced with the big, bad world of being responsible, practical, and can no longer justify childish behaviour.
It is impossible in these times not to be flooded with nostalgia. Childhood teaches us things which prove invaluable for adult life and of these mementos of youth, Disney teaches some less conventional but definitely memorable lessons.
It is always appropriate to sing songs. Even when nobody else is in the room. ESPECIALLY when nobody else is in the room.
Talking to animals and expecting them to respond is definitely a normal way to experience friendship.
There is no such thing as employment. Unless you’re Cinderella.
You should never swim away from your parents, especially if you have a bad fin.
I’m not entirely sure how these lessons relate to our lives, but I’m sure at some point we will all thank Disney for their insight.
