10 Things You Might Forget (But Shouldn’t)
  1. Your I-9 documentation. Whether it’s your passport, social security card, birth certificate, and your ID, don’t forget them!
  2. Your boarding pass! You have to print out all the paperwork (you can’t just have it on your phone!) with the barcode included after you fill out your housing registration and bring it with you to check-in. 
  3. Renters insurance. Disney recommends that you have insurance (it’s required for the Disneyland program), but it isn’t necessary. Personally I’m not going to have it and I know plenty of others who are in the same boat.
  4. Locks. You’ll have a locker at your apartment and access to one at work so bring two combination locks with you or buy them once you’re down here.
  5. Umbrella! Whether it’s pouring rain or bright and sunny, a small umbrella can come in handy.
  6. Your checkbook. Disney requires you to bring a voided check with you for payroll purposes so don’t leave your checks at home!
  7. Vehicle registration and car insurance. If you’re bringing your car make sure to bring these documents.
  8. Medications. If you’re on any type of medication make sure you get a prescription to bring with you or get a vacation override from your insurance company so you can pick up a few months worth of doses before you leave.
  9. Shoe inserts! There’s a 99% chance you’ll be standing and moving around most of the day and one of the best ways to protect your feet is to invest in some great Dr. Scholls inserts. 
  10. Roommate gifts! This one is totally up to what you and your potential roommates want do, but the gesture is thoughtful and could be a nice way to start out your program!

I took my first college tour today and it made me realize that I might have to grow up...I can't be a little/middle in a four-year university.

I don’t really see why not….

I know PLENTY of littles and middles in university, big people jobs, and even those in their 40s and 50s

Little isn’t something you do… it’s something you are no matter what your environment happens to be.

Yes you may have to be restrained if you’re uncomfortable expressing it, but it doesn’t change what you are.

My little in college wasn’t blatant about her little side to others, she still wore cute panties and socks, she watched Disney movies with dorm mates religiously, and her big fat pooh bear stuffie spent many nights in my bed.. but the coloring books and paci were saved for weekends at home.

College is where I found a higher concentration of real genuine people in this lifestyle than I ever thought possible.

Do you really think you’re going to be the only little at your school?

Join a sorority and you’ll quickly find that you’re mistaken. Hahah.

Even if you have no idea who zendaya is—and it seems a pretty safe bet that most of the adult tourist crowd at Sarabeth’s (the bustling Central Park South restaurant that serves as the setting for the 18-year-old Disney star's Teen Vogueinterview) do not—you’d probably suspect, just by looking at her, that she’s someone. In sneakers she stands an imposing five feet ten, and at lunchtime her face is expertly made up; both her pink-painted nails and her jet-black lashes are improbably long. And if her attire—which includes a pair of slim-fitting gray sweatpants, a black hooded sweatshirt bearing a picture of rapper Tupac Shakur, and orange Nikes, which she kicks off almost as soon as she’s seated—sends a slightly different message, it’s one that serves only to underscore the larger implication: This is a girl who doesn’t need to worry about fitting in. (The gigantic bodyguard who’d waited with her by the host station is a somewhat more obvious tip-off.)

Among those in the know, Zendaya’s willingness to stand out is a much-admired quality. But that hasn’t always been the case: Back when she was 13 and first started trying out for professional acting gigs in Los Angeles, she says, “there was this kind of energy, particularly among the other girls, of, like, ‘Oooh, I’m going to get you.’ A lot of the kids who were auditioning had been doing it since they were, like, 2. They were these purebred Hollywood children, and I was this random chick from Oakland just doing my thing,” she explains. “They’re always onstage, and I was just so not into it. Like, you’re 12. Chill out. It’s not the end of the world. I’d literally sit there before auditions with my headphones on, listening to Michael Jackson.” Needless to say, it didn’t exactly help when she promptly nabbed a starring role in the Disney Channel series Shake It Up. “I think a lot of them hated me,” she admits.

Fortunately Zendaya seems to have had no trouble taking the haters in stride, especially given that she’s been busy pursuing her dreams at full throttle. It all began, Zendaya says, when she was a kid, accompanying her schoolteacher mom to her second job as a house manager at the California Shakespeare Theater. “My passion was always in the arts,” she says. “I was that weird 8-year-old who was into Shakespeare.” On show nights Zendaya sold enough raffle tickets to earn a free trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico—which, she notes, she never actually took. And when the curtain went up, she recalls, “I had a routine. Everyone knew me, so I’d go over to the food stand and they’d give me a chocolate-chip cookie, a Snapple, and a veggie burrito, and then I’d sit in the back and watch all the plays over and over and over again.”

Her favorites included Othello and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, but she made her own stage debut in a more humble production: a children’s theater presentation ofJames and the Giant Peach. “I played the Silkworm, which means I didn’t have any lines—I might have said, 'James, look!’ or something like that. But I was up there the whole time, reacting to things.” Zendaya was, she reports, an introvert (“When I was younger, my parents had to go to a seminar about shy kids”), and acting gave her a chance to break out of her shell. But it was still difficult to live apart from her mother, who remained in Oakland while Zendaya was shooting the first season of Shake It Up in L.A.—especially at the arrival of, as she puts it, “woman time,” which forced her to dispatch her clueless father to a drugstore in search of supplies.

Now, more than a year after the end of her first series, Zendaya is poised to conquer a larger audience. But she’s not quite following the path forged by fellow former child stars Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez; for one, she’s not ditching Disney at all. Instead she’s working with the network on her new show, K.C. Undercover, for which she serves, crucially, as coproducer. “It was going to be called Super Awesome Katy,” she explains, “but I changed it. I don’t look like a Katy, and I wanted something a little more mature. It wasn’t really right for the demographic that I’m trying to reach now.” Which is&? “Well, the majority of my fan base are young girls, and I don’t want to leave that world forever. But I also want to reach the preteens, the teenagers. A lot of college students watch the Disney Channel in their dorms, actually.”

The Aftermath || Open

Maya stirred in the unfamiliar bed. She turned her head to the side. Her head was pounding, her nose was killing and her body ached. She remembered going to the party, having a few drinks, escaping the men and running into the wood, she remembered laying on the ground, not being strong enough to stand. She slowly pushed herself up, only just noticing the person in the room. “Hey.”
