Design Assignment: Motivational Poster(3pts)- “A Tangled Dream.”


Tangled is one of my top favorite Disney movies of all time and I feel it sends a great message about the idea of dreaming and how it should be continuous. Flynn Ryder tells Rapunzel to find a new dream when she fears that fulfilling her dream of seeing the lanterns will mean there is nothing else to dream of. This is such a beautiful moment in the film and it honest;y is one of my favorite film moments I have ever seen. It is something I actually dream of doing and one day, I would love to see lanterns in the sky similar to this (that would be the best marriage proposal of all time for me). But I want viewers of this poster to feel motivated to make their internal dreams their external realities and to never stop finding their next dream. It is a human quality to have an unfulfilled desire for adventure and I think that is something that makes life meaningful; having a constant un-quenched desire allows one to explore different sides of themselves and do things they never knew they could do. One example of this for me is when I thought of myself joining color guard back in 10th grade, but never went out to find more information about it because I didn’t know if it was something I would ever do. At the time, it just seemed like a little daydream for me, tossing flags for an audience. But it was my senior year of high school that fate intervened. One of my friends randomly called me to have dinner with her and one of her marching band friends and I thought to myself, “Why not? I don’t have anything better to do.” The next day, I went to pre-band camp where the girl brought me to the color guard team and I came back for marching band the next week. Soon, I was an integrated member of the Cox Marching Falcons and I truly loved every minute I was with them, performing together. Being in color guard that year changed me and made me the happiest I had ever been all throughout my years at high school and honestly my life in general. I was at a time of depression before I joined guard and maybe in a way it saved me and showed me that every moment is full of inconceivable joy only if we allow ourselves to see it and never stop chasing it. Life began to have more meaning all because I followed this dream. I remember we gave speeches the night before our last show and I found myself in tears giving mine because I could not express how happy being a part of the band made me. Guard allowed me to see my full potential and I have met some of the most unforgettable people I can now call my close friends because of it. I don’t really know where or who I would be without this dream I made real. It still is the most unreal feeling even today when I perform for competitions at college, remembering that one summer day brought me here, brought me to this point in my life where I recognize that dreams can become real if you pursue them. When this journey ends, I know it will be time to find a new dream and life is certainly full of never-ending dreams that are magic in the making and remembering. For now, I will fully live this dream, the one that I believe saved me; saved me from being unaware of just how amazing life can be and how just one choice gave me this light that will never burn out.
