When Disney live action reboots go to theaters, a wide range of ages can be seen sitting next to one another. I am the 21-year-old shushing kids in the theaters because I want to watch Belle dancing with the Beast while Mrs. Potts sings “Tale as Old as Time” in the background. As a child, I was obsessed with all things Disney… that has not changed.

I was standing by the toaster waiting for my bagel when I tried making light conversation with the girl next to me, who was also waiting for toast. I mentioned how brave she was to be wearing Birkenstocks in 10 degree weather…but the conversation did not move past this. She didn’t even acknowledge that I was talking to her. The girl’s head was buried in her phone, unaware that I was two feet away talking and looking at her directly. It was in this moment that I became disappointed and at out annoyed with how disengaged college students have become, thanks to the trance their technologies send them into.
