5 Reasons Little Cousins are the Best

I have 21 cousins in total (11 on my dad's side and 10 on my mom's side). Having that many cousins means I'm closer to certain cousins over others and I get to see some more often than others as well. The closet cousins I have are my cousins Kaitlen and EJ, who are my mom's oldest sister's children. They're both older than me and they have their own families but that hasn't stopped us from being close. Kaitlen has two kids - Brooke and Bruno and EJ has three kids - EJ, Russ, and Jacqueline. I absolutely adore these kids (ask anyone in my family) and it's been a joy to watch them grow up. During the school year, I don't get to see them as often as I'd like (and Kaitlen lives in FL now so I'm not involved in her kids' lives as much as I'd like either) but I try to see them at every break to see the kids. Having them in my life is the absolute best because I have the opportunity to watch them grow up and help shape them into the best people ever. Here's why I love having little cousins.

1. Watching my favorite childhood shows.

Watching the same shows that I watched when they were my age makes me feel old but it's a great feeling that cartoons like Spongebob and Scooby Doo bring them the same happiness that they once brought me.

2. Being the cool big cousin who allows them to use my phone

Whenever we see each other, my Snapchat story is filled with selfies like this.

3. Having the cutest fanbase

4. Being a "big" kid

I love being around them and I get creative when playing outside or getting them to do clean up their messes

5. Getting Unconditional Love

No matter what, they'll always love me and look up to me.

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.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

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.
