If 5 Montana Colleges Were Odyssey Articles
Start writing a post

Welcome to Montana: Big Sky Country, home to more cows than people, and probably the nicest of the redneck states. Our state car is any model of Subaru, the state dog is a Labrador or Golden Retriever, and the state shoe is the Chaco--or, unfortunately, Birkenstocks with socks. Surprising to a majority of west-coasters, we do have electricity, and we don't ride our horses to school nor do we hunt for every meal (though, by how much camo is worn around here, I don't blame you for thinking that last part)! We also happen to have a bunch of awesome colleges scattered throughout this big, beautiful state; but as awesome as they are, it's just too fun to make fun of them.

In the spirit of having a good laugh, here is what every Montana college would be if they were an Odyssey (reject) article:

1. University of Montana (Missoula)

"An Open Letter To The Football Player Who Touched Me Inappropriately"

Okay, that one was probably below the belt, but I couldn't resist. How about a less offensive one?

"My WRIT 201 Professor Got High With Us And That's Okay"

May or may not be a true story.

2. University of Great Falls


"I Was A Bench Warmer In High School But I've Learned To Love Myself" or

"11 Reasons Why Binge-Drinking Alcohol In High School Got Me To Where I Am Today"

3. Montana State University (Bozeman)

"I Wear A The North Face Jacket Even Though The Only Outdoor Activity I Participate In Is Smoking Hookah Outside, And That's Okay" and

"24 Reasons Hunting Season Should Be A National Holiday"

Freakin' outdoorsy people, right?

4. University of Montana Western


"I'm A High School Sports Star That Can't Accept That I'm A Mediocre Athlete In College" or

"How Wearing Boots And Drinking PBR Taught Me To Be A Better Cowboy"

5. Carroll College



"Adderall And Weed Are Real Drugs Which Means I'm Hard Core" and

"17 Reasons My Talent Is The Reason I'm At A Private University, Not My Daddy's Money"

What stereotypes did I miss?

Sometimes I Prefer The World A Bit Blurry

Ignorance is actually pretty bliss...

I have been wearing glasses since I was seven years old. When I was young, I loved wearing my glasses. Noticing each individual leaf on a tree or the distinct smile lines on my mother's face was an absolute dream. Now I prefer to take off my glasses at times, despite being considered legally blind. Twinkle lights glow brighter when blurred. It is easier to ignore the graying hairs when viewed in a softer light. All in all, the famous cliche "ignorance is bliss" couldn't be truer.
