10 Signs You Went To Oswego High School

Whenever you tell someone new you’re from Oswego, they automatically assume you went to Oswego East. Well at least that's how it's always gone for me anyways. And I always have to tell them “Nope, I went to the “regular” Oswego High School.” There were a lot of things that differentiated us from Oswego East. Here are some signs that show you’re an Oswego High School graduate.

1. Cinnamon Bun Friday! - Fridays were always great, but every other Friday was the best. 1 dollar giant, delicious cinnamon rolls to look forward too in 2nd period. Food & Nutrition 2, always coming in clutch.

2. East View Parking Lot – Route 71’s left turn lane was always so long you’d have to wait through at least 3 arrows to turn. Instead, you took a quick U-turn in East View to save loads of time. Only until cops started to chill in the parking lot.

3. Never Ending Construction – Teacher: “Why are you late?” Student: “Because the traffic outside sucks!” Teacher: “Makes sense” Year after year, more and more construction emerged. Once something was finished, something else began.

4. The Freshman Wing – The wing upper-class men refused to step foot into.

5. Orange Crew – The area students dreamed of being able to sit in all throughout junior high. Though the only game OC was ever really involved in was the Crosstown game.

6. Crosstown Challenge – Year after year, the games getting more and more intense, Oswego High School always comes through with a victory over East.

7. Music In The Hallways – The same old music would play for the last minute of the 6-minute passing period in-between classes, until it was cut off to tell us to get our butts to class.

8. "ABCD" Lunch or Guided Study – No matter what lunch period you had, you never got more than 30 minutes to eat. By the time you sat down with your flimsy chicken patty you heard the words “Alright lets go."

9. Bonnie & Mario – Always walking the hallways asking where our passes were. Though we were never really fazed because our relationships were pretty chill.

10. TALK Day – The best 4 days of the year. Being able to skip a whole day of classes to hang out in the gym, play games, and meet new people.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
