6 Reasons Why I Can't Wait To Go Back To College

6 Reasons Why I Can't Wait To Go Back To College

What's not to love about college?

Sara Clemens

With the new school year starting in a few weeks, it's just about time to start getting ready for another exciting year. Personally, I cannot wait to go back to school. I didn't really want to leave in the first place this past spring, but staying there for the summer wasn't in the cards. I've compiled a list of a few things that I'm most excited about for this upcoming school year.

1. Friends

They say college is where you meet the friends that you'll have for a lifetime, and I can say that I have made a few friendships that I know will last.

2. Freedom

Now don't get me wrong on this one, I'm almost 20 and I have all the freedom in the world, but there's a different sense of freedom at college versus the freedom you have during breaks from school while you live at home. (Side note: my dad bought me this mug because he knows that I do what I want, responsibly of course.)

3. Starting New Classes

I may be one of the few college students actually looking forward to this, but I truly love my major and I am looking forward to starting new classes in the fall that will help me toward getting my degree.

4. Buying new things

In the past, back to school shopping consisted of clothes and school supplies, but this year I had to buy things like a shower curtain, plates and bowls, and a pizza cutter. As exciting (and expensive) as this all is, I don't know how I feel about growing up.

5. Care Packages/ Mail

I know I'm speaking for most college students when I say I LOVE getting care packages and mail in general! It doesn't really matter what's in them, they're just an exciting way for someone to show that they're thinking about you while you're practically M.I.A. for awhile.

6. Having a set schedule

Between work and school, my schedule will be basically pre-determined for the entire semester, and I have to say I am totally okay with that. I like having spontaneity and freedom to do whatever in the summer, but I prefer having a set schedule most of the time. Maybe it's just my type-A personality talking, but having order in my life keeps me sane.

These are just a few reasons why I am very excited to head back to school. It's been said that college is the best four years of your life, and so far I can agree with that. Here's to starting my third year in a few weeks!

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.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

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?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
