I didn't grow up with Disney as such, I just became obsessed with it as a teenager. I think it's a great thing to be in love with though, I mean better than Call of Duty and Halo and all those things. (That my brother plays non stop. Ugh.)

It does bug me when my parents think I'm sad or pathetic for liking Disney. They never say that but they do imply it sometimes. We live in the UK so aren't near WDW or Disneyland. We do have DLP but that is expensive and bad. Lol

Now, I don't go around saying I like Doisney at school, but for different reasons. I'm different, and I've had a history of bullying, and becaue I'm different and sometimes blunt people tend not to like me, and there's a lot of jerks at my school, so I don't mention Disney at school so as not to get targeted.
My school has loads of nasty people, and I've been bullied in the past too. My friends know I love Disney, but no one else. I wouldn't advertise my love for Disney because then... Everyone would look at me weirdly and make snarky comments.

I just think they would love Disney too if they went to WDW and saw what it was really about. My school is in a really poor area so most people have never even been out of the country.

In the US Disney seems to be aimed at kids and adults- product wise. Here, it is mainly kids products and I wistfully sigh when I see all the amazing things you guys can buy from your Disney store.

I am also going through a phase of loving America, as you can probably tell!

Yup I'm a Canadian, so I love Canada, but America's pretty cool too. I've lived here longer. And I have American blood as well.

That's probably exactly what the kids at my school would do. Why people feel the need to be cruel to other people is beyond me.

Yes, I think if they could actually go and see what Disney really is, then more people may like it.

That must suck. I've been disappointed by the lack of Brave things for adults. I saw it this summer and fell in love with it. It's become one of my obsessions, I even dyed my hair red. So I bet it sucks to have almost everything limited to kids.

It is a Role Playing game. You make up a character and write out what they do.

You're CANADIAN!!! Sorry lol, I have never met a Canadian before. You're quite similar to America though I am guessing.

People at my school go round beating eachother up and all sorts. They also throw drinks at you. I feel like I'm in a zoo- kinda really out of place. So best not stand out.

That's really adventurous dying your hair red! You must be obsessed with Brave to actually be that brave! My dad is Scottish and I'm half Scottish so we all love Brave too! You'll have to come to Scotland sometime, it looks just as amazing as the movie!

There's actually an 'Art of Brave' book that I was going to get. That's aimed at adults but the rest... I'm with you... For kids

Hope you had a good Christmas btw. It's sad that we are taking down our decorations this weekend. The Easter stuff is already in the supermarkets, 4 months early!

I've never played volleyball. I love badminton though. Football (soccer) is really popular here and that drives me crazy.

I haven't played badminton except in Gym Class. I also love playing soccer or as the English call it football.

Yeah, it's pretty cool. Pretty similar, slightly different though in some ways.

Oh yes, there's lots of fighting at my school too. This is a little exaggerated on my part, but you could say, "There was a fight today." the same way you could say "It's raining." Haven't actually seen a fight at school though. Yeah, I try not to stand out.

Thanks! For a little while I was hesitant to because some people call redheads "souless gingers" but in the end I didn't care. And I haven't been called it once this year(except by my older brother - but what can you do?). My dad wants to go one year and I'm totally up for it. I'm sure it does look amazing.

I've thought about that, but never got it. I do have a Merida pin and Christmas ornament though.

I had a pretty good Christmas. We've already packed up our Christmas stuff, but I have a few disney christmas ornaments I keep as decorations in my room. My mom also keeps out her Cinderella glass slipper ornament. Valentine's Day(which I only like because my mom gives me chocolate) usually comes first, and it's probably out now, but once February 15th hits it's suddenly Easter time.
