7 Things I Wish I Had Done At The University Of Tulsa

What could have been at TU.

In Search of Grace

Everyone thinks about what would have been. We all look back and make lists in our head about the things we wish had done when we were younger. The following "stream of consciousness" are things I wish I had done when I was a student at the University of Tulsa (TU).

1. Joined Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia

I love music and singing, so this would have been a perfect fit! Instrument-wise? Give me a tambourine and I'll attempt to keep a beat.

2. Gone to at least one frat party

Not to party hard or anything, but to enjoy the entertainment that is intoxicated college students!

3. Drank more coffee

I am not normally a coffee drinker, but it sure would have come in handy for rare super late nights getting schoolwork finished! I guess they have Starbucks now, so that would have been extra motivation.

4. Not being so insanely busy with organizations from freshman to junior year

Being a Senator with Student Association, treasurer of Residence Hall Association, treasurer of Phi Eta Sigma, reporting secretary (later treasurer) of Beta Alpha Psi, and being involved with residence hall government was definitely a juggling act. Especially when they occurred around the same time! After junior year, senior and grad school years were definitely more relaxing, but still challenging.

5. Attended a TU softball game

No, intramural softball didn't count!

6. Submitted a film (as director) for the TU Catholic Newman Center Film Fest as an undergrad

It was not until I was a grad student that I submitted a film that I directed. I made cameo appearances in a few past films, but directing allowed me to be exposed to all the aspects that make a solid film. (The picture above is a still from the film I directed, "Liturgical Songs by the Fire".)

7. Been involved in a theatrical production at TU

I had supporting roles in my high school productions of "Harvey," "No Time for Sergeants," and "Inherit the Wind" from my sophomore to senior year at Little Rock Catholic High School, but other interests led me away from theater during college. A small role or even some behind the scenes work would have been enough.

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?
