15 Reasons Why I Love Writing And Editing For The Odyssey

15 Reasons Why I Love The Odyssey
The Odyssey Online

When I got asked to write for the Odyssey back in March, I didn't hesitate to say yes. Let me tell you, that was the best decision of my life. Since I've joined the team, I've become a better writer and communicator. I get to write about things that interest and concern me, and some of the articles I've had friends tell me that what I've written have helped them or made them laugh. BUT i have a list of reasons why I LOVE writing and being an Editor for the Odyssey:

1. I Can Write About Whatever I Want

2. My Team is AMAZING

3. Weekly Articles are A Lot More Fun Than They Sound

4. Hearing People Say They Enjoy My Articles Motivates Me

5. Being an EIC Has Introduced Me to Some AMAZING people

6. Writing is my life...

7. Weekly checkins with the EIC tend to be very fun and/or rant sessions!

8. My creators make me proud week after week

9. It gives me a voice

10. Nothing beats getting the email saying your article has been published

11. Getting emails saying someone submitted an article

12. I have the most welcoming group EVER!

13. Getting asked what the Odyssey is

14. Seeing not only my articles but also my team members articles shared on social media.

15. Getting requests from people to join the team

Although I have many more, I've decided to keep the list {semi} short. Hope you enjoy! If any non Odyssey team members have any questions or are interested feel free to reach out to me!

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
