11 Signs You're Actually In A Long-Term Relationship With The Beach

Because who doesn't love the beach?


The beach stirs up a special type of emotion for those of us who love it so much. The feeling we experience from the minute our toes hit the sand to the ever-lasting joy we experience even after the leaves are falling and when the tan lines are fading is indescribable. Even if your love life isn’t always at its best, you know there is always one thing you can count on, the beach. Here are 11 signs you are actually in a long-term relationship with the beach:

  1. As soon as you leave, you can’t wait to go back. Just like leaving a significant other, you feel a sense of emptiness until you are reunited again. But once you are reunited, all is right with the world.
  2. You are able to be yourself while at the beach. You don’t feel like you are being judged for eating an entire bag of chips while basking in the sun and you will always feel confident rocking that bathing suit.
  3. The beach is always brought up in conversation. Just like that one friend who never fails to talk about her boyfriend, you always find a way to insert your love for the beach into any conversation.
  4. You can’t get it off your mind. Whether you are bored in class or extremely busy at work, the beach is always on your mind. You constantly wish you were there, swimming in the sea or feeling the warmth of the sun.
  5. There are numerous pictures, everywhere. From the endless pictures on your camera roll to the multiple framed photos around your room and bathroom, there are plenty of pictures to remind you of the good times.
  6. The beach teaches you lessons. Although you may not realize it, the beach teaches you many important lessons. Remember, life can be calm or rough just like the ocean, but in the end it is always beautiful.
  7. It overwhelms your social media. From Instagram to Snapchat, you are known for documenting every single experience you share together and, of course, you have to tag your location.
  8. You create incredible memories together. Even though the footprints you leave in the sand will wash away, your memories will be forever. From the endless trips with your family to the weekend getaways with your best friends, your favorite moments will always start with the beach.
  9. You crave its’ presence. You crave breathing in the salt air and hearing the crash of the waves. Most importantly, whether you’re having the best or worst day of your life, you would much rather experience it at the beach.
  10. It brings you joy and contentment. Just like being with a significant other, you are at your happiest when surrounded around sand and sea. You are most content with sitting in the sand with your toes in the water.
  11. The beach is always there for you and will never leave. Unlike other relationships, you can always count on the beach to be there for you and never leave. Through good and hard times, it will still be there and welcome you with open arms. Regardless of what is going on in your life, you know that you can always count of the beach to cure your blues.

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
