But the poor princes and princesses don’t know the queen is evil, they just think she is helping them find each other to live happily ever after. Now in this story, there are multiple fairy godmothers, and/or godfathers. These are few students who have the courage to try to fight the dragon and distract the princes/princesses from the evil queen. They are the real magic of the story. Being a freshman at the University of Miami, you are forced to live on campus, not a castle. This means that unless you know every single person in your tower, you will endure at least one awkward elevator ride. The type of ride where everyone is just staring at a blank screen on their phone, pretending to text something super important while avoiding eye contact at all cost. And let’s face it- we are all guilty of this crime. Now depending on which floor you live, you may be able to skip the dragon altogether and take the stairs. But…

In fact, she sorts everything out for herself, considering that her "fairy godmother" is actually a magic tree and some enchanted birds.
