16 Stages of Starting  a New Show
Gladson Xavier

With so many TV shows available on the internet, through Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime, it's sometimes hard to decide which shows to start. Of course, whenever you pose this problem to a friend or coworker, they are more than willing to give a list of shows that they have watched already. This list varies from person to person and the types of show suggestions range from Friends and the Simpsons to Doctor Who and Game of Thrones.

1. Excitement

Finally someone mentioned a great show that you haven't watched yet, and they're willing to watch it with you.

2. Expectation

You've heard of this show before and now you finally get to see what the hype was all about.

3. Starting the show

You don't realize what you're getting into until the end of that first episode.

4. Recognizing famous moments

You've seen that GIF somewhere before.

5. Spoilers

If it's a popular show, you've seen way more spoilers than you think

6. Knowledgeable friends

They know so much and just laugh at you when you get attached to characters that die.

7. Foreshadowing

When a friend uses past tense on a character, you know something will happen to them.

8. Predictions

When you think you know what may happen to a character or the way the story might go.

9. Season finale

You reach the end of a season, the first huge cliff hanger. Hopefully, you don't have to wait long to see the next season.

10. Binge watching

10 episodes in one day, a season in a weekend, no sweat.

11. True predictions

When you get far enough into a show, you start to learn the patterns of the writers, and sometimes you can guess correctly what they will do next.

12. Unforeseen deaths

Just when you think you know what will happen, a plot twist turns everything around.

13. Reaching the end

When there's no more to watch, all that's left is to wait and make theories.

14. Waiting for the next episode

The anticipation, the lack of patience.

15. Admitting you're obsessed

You have all of the merchandise. All of it.

16. Showing your friends

Now that you've fallen in love with this show, it's time to share it with others.

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.

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.
