As highly evolved (for the most part) people that we are we tend to identify people, places, things, and emotions based on color cues. If you see a piece of food in tuperware at the back of the fridge and it isn't the color that it should be then you automatically know that chances are it's no good. If you are surfing the web and suddenly your computer screen turns blue, without reading the message you already know that your $2000 laptop or desk top has just turned into a $2000 paper weight.
So what about purple?
Well chances are if you are reading this, then you are a fan of disney, you are interested in the college program, and you already know what I am getting at. The color purple is a magical color thatcan turn even the darkest day into the best day of your teenage or young adult life. The color purple will symbolize your immediate transformation from an everyday run of the mill Jane or John Doe into an anybody who's anybody. That's right you know what I am referring to:

That's right! From the moment you open up your mailbox and realize that among the many menus for chinese take out and the notices from the housing department that you are on your 5th or 6th warning for a noise violation there is one peice of about 9' by 12' envelope with a mouse on it that towers above the rest. And as you rush to the elevator in your dorm you fight back the urge just rip it open right then and there because you know that in it lies the one thing capable of making you lose focus in all of your classes for the two to five weeks that it took for it to arrive. And as you enter your dorm room you slam the door shut and throw everything off your bed or desk so that nothing distracts you from the magical moment you are about to have. You then regain some composure and for the first inch of the envelope you use your finger to slowly rip rip so as to not disrupt the integrity of the envelope. But then you realize you still have eleven inches to go and you say screw the integrity and you shred the envelope like a lion eating it's prey and that's when you see it:

I will be using this blog to inform, entertain, and do pretty much what I want in terms of the disney college program. This first entry was meant to serve as a quick intro for the blog and why it is called The Purple Folder. My next entry will be a short blurb about myself and some preliminary information about the Disney College Program, so stay tuned and have a Zip-A-Dee-Do-Dah-Day.
