7 Thing We Are Finally Getting Back To At UVA

7 Thing We Are Finally Getting Back To At UVA

It's great to be back at college.


For me, summer break has felt like an eternity and I am ready to get back to college at last. Here are my top ten things I'm looking forward to experiencing again and I bet you are too.

1. College friends.

It has been months since you've seen some of these people and before you were basically seeing them every day. I know I'm psyched about getting back into the groove of chilling with my favorite people.

2. Having a routine.

I know I might be in the minority here, but I did not have a job or internship this summer and I have never been more bored. Watching YouTube till 6 am gets pretty old really fast and I'm looking forward to actually having things to do again that stop this awful sleep schedule. I am sick of waking up feeling like this.

3. Freedom again at last.

The free meals and stuff at home is great but even if you have your own car and are pretty independent you can't do ANYTHING you want. You still had to respect the wills and wishes of your parents, but now its time to pretend like we're adults and make horrible decisions about our health and sanity.

4. Perfectly toned calves will return.

I don't know about you but I've spent way too much of my summer not do anything resembling exercise. People talk about getting a beach bod but this is all a lie. The real ideal bod is that school walking bod. I've never been in better shape in my life and I played soccer in high school. Ready to get thin and have the best damn calves in my family.

5. Parties.

For some of you this may not be a problem, but for me my hometown is not really known for having great parties unless you consider guns being present as your ideal way of getting lit that night. Finally getting back to the parties and this year I might actually know enough people to get in. (I'm totally the guy in the very back btw)

6. School.

As much as we hate to admit it, there is something enjoyable about being intellectually stimulated. All the work is a pain in the ass, but you cannot say that there is not at least one class or one part of it that you enjoy. The routine makes me feel like my life is not completely falling apart at least.


I know I have put this one twice but it is the most important one. Months between seeing some of your best friends can be really tough and nothing will compare to getting to hang out with your best buds again. I know it is what I'm looking forward to the most. See you guys soon!

Get excited because we'll all be back at school soon!

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

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.

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?
