The hidden treasures of a winter spent in Boston

6 Activities For A Winter In Boston
Able Grape

I have always loved living near the city. There is always something to do, inside and out. Living in Boston definitely has its perks, and since we endure such a long winter, we might as well make the best of it. If you're in the area, here are some uncommon things to do in Boston in the winter.

1. ImprovBoston

If you're looking to laugh until your sides hurt, this is the choice for you. ImprovBoston is a nonprofit organization that humors people five days a week through the improvisation shows directed by the audience. Nothing is scripted as cast members take suggestions on topics straight from the audience. This should definitely be on everyone's to-do list.


2. Chocolate Factory

This particular activity speaks out to the chocoholics out there. Located in the heart of Boston, we have Max Brenner's Chocolate factory. This place simply has the best hot chocolate I've ever had in my life. Everything about going there is an experience, and it is definitely worth it.


3. Bad Art Museum

It's funny that a place like this actually exists. Made for artists to showcase what otherwise wouldn't be showcased, the Museum of Bad Art is the perfect place to go for a quick laugh. You'll see all kinds of interesting and ridiculous forms of art which makes for a really fun day running away from the cold.


4. Brooklyn Boulders

Calling out to the athletic people! Brooklyn Boulders is a rock climbing gym located right in Somerville. Containing a variety of classes and events, this 40,000 square foot facility challenges those who walk in to take fitness fun to another level.


5. Mapparium

This three-story, stained-glass globe is perfect for an afternoon of flashing back to the past - 1935 to be exact. It shows a change in our world through music, lights, and words. It is located right in the Mary Baker Eddy Library. What better way to spend a snowy and cold winter day than here?


6. Wicked Escapes

This one's my personal favorite. Imagine being stuck in jail with a bunch of your friends and trying to plan a breakout. Wicked Escapes gives you the chance to do just that. Searching for clues and trying to figure out a mystery has never been more thrilling. Grab a few of your closest friends, split up into groups, and try to bail yourselves out of jail, orange jumpsuits and all.

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.

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.
