10 Thoughts Odyssey Writers Have While Writing their Weekly piece of Content

I started writing for "The Odyssey" close to a year ago, and it really has been a great outlet for my mind to get off other things that are going on in my life. From homework, relationships, and the list goes on and on. Since we have to write on a weekly basis, there are some weeks where it can be quite difficult coming up with what to write about next. Something that we all call writer's block. Coming up with something to write about while having writer's block is very difficult. Sometimes I have written articles that I thought were not very good, but they have gotten a lot of views. However, I have also had those articles that haven't done so well and it just varies. Nonetheless, after writing for "The Odyssey" for close to a year now, I have definitely experienced many different thoughts while writing all of my articles and I think that most Odyssey writers can relate!

1. What should I write about?

This tends to be a long or short process depending on your week.

2. Is that idea stupid?

Some ideas that come into my mind, I have to take a second thought and think about this!

3. I don't have time to write this week!

With all that happens during school, the responsibilities can definitely pile up and be having to write an Odyssey article weekly does add some stress to those very stressful weeks!

4. It's 4:30 p.m. and I only have 30 Minutes until the deadline!

Especially when I get very busy, I sometimes forget about writing my article. Thus, comes the time when I am finishing the article in thirty minutes!

5. Did I write about that already?

After struggling to think of what to write about, sometimes old ideas might slip into my mind.

6. Will anyone notice?

Will anyone notice if I write about something that I already did before?

7. How do these people come up with these ideas?

I see some of these Odyssey articles that are really good, and I wish that I could come up with ideas like that!

8. All I can think of is writing about food

Food is something that everyone can talk about, and who doesn't love to talk about it! These type of articles are my go-to ideas!

9. Now I am hungry *goes and gets something to eat*

After writing about food or just thinking about writing about food, I just want to go get some!

10. Ehh, I can write my article later

After going through the struggles of pondering what to write about, sometimes it is just easy to walk away and do it later. But we try not to do this often...

All of us writers have different types of creativity, and that is what makes us all unique. That uniqueness is what helps to bring about all the different types of articles that we see and enjoy!

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Noah Centineo and Lana Condor are back with the third and final installment of the "To All The Boys I've Loved Before" series


Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
