27 Things To Add Culture To Your Life

27 Things To Add Culture To Your Life

All of which are low-to-no cost.


1. Find a Park

You don’t necessarily have to go to it, I suppose, just find where it is.

2. Look at Stars

Look at a light pollution map, find a dark area, drive there, and look at the sky (works best at night).

3. Watch a Film

Find something classy, like indie films that look like the entire thing has the Clarendon filter over it.

4. Go to a Library

I always forget how much I love libraries. Bruh, the entire place smells like old books and they’re ALL FREE. You can just take ‘em. Amazing.

5. Cook Something from a Video You Saw on Facebook

Technically, you're supposed to eat every day anyway, so no extra expense.

6. Draw Something

It doesn’t have to look good; just say that’s the aesthetic you’re going for, like a Picasso.

7. Exist

Just chill on this ride through space, fam.

8. Make a Website

Then you can update everyone with things you think they want to know, for some reason.

9. Read a Blog

Preferably about something incredibly specific and nuanced. Become an expert and tell all your friends.

10. Start a Blog

Preferably about something incredibly specific and nuanced. Become an expert and show all your friends by linking it to your website.

11. Transcend this Plane of Existence

Nothing says “cultured” quite like superseding your corporeal form.

12. Go on a Picnic

Basket: optional.

Tiny sandwiches: mandatory.

13. Start Learning a Language

Even just a couple words is a good start.

14. Speak with Computers

Learning a language = fancy. Computers = fancy. Learning computer code = nerd, somehow. You should still do it though.

15. Memorize a Poem

You never know when you’ll need it.

16. Call Your Legislators

Nothing is more cultured than being an involved citizen!

17. Do More Push-ups

You know who valued physical exercise? Leonardo da Vinci.

18. Run.


19. Take Super Aesthetic-y Photos for your Instagram

Be the aesthetic you want to see in your feed.

20. Make a Mini-Movie on your Snapchat

Or just take more videos of your dog wandering around your house. Up to you.

21. Collage Something

Video collage, photo collage, paper collage - it all works.

22. Write Letters to Your Friends

Bonus points for delivering through the mail.

23. Write Letters to Your Enemies

Bonus points for delivering by trained hawk.

24. Write Literally Anything

You could write the next great American novel. You probably won't but like, you could, theoretically.

25. Start a Dream Journal

Lucid dreaming is just the next step toward real-life Inception, I promise.

26. Study, I guess

You probably need to tbh.

27. Hang Out at Coffee Shops

The more obscure the better, and you can only go to Starbucks ironically.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

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?
