8 Fun Facts About Hailey

To start off my Odyssey career, here's a few things about me.

8 Fun Facts About Hailey

I'm new around here. Here's a few things about myself to introduce who I am.

1. I'm from Dallas-Ft.Worth, Texas. Grapevine, specifically.

There's a lot to do around here; you can go to the lake or you can shop. There's always something for everyone to do. I lived here from age 8 to age 17.

2. I graduated a year early!

I graduated from high school as a junior and went straight to Trinity University in the fall. A lot of people gave me a hard time for this, but I think this is my biggest accomplishment thus far.

3. Dance is my passion

I've been dancing since I was 12 years old and have loved every minute of it. The picture above was from my sophomore year in high school, where I choreographed and performed my own solo routine. I've taken classes in hip-hop, jazz, contemporary, and ballet. I'm now on the Prowlers Dance Team here at Trinity.

4. I'm a band geek

I've played the bassoon since the 6th grade and did color guard in high school. There's nothing like an auditorium filled with people or stepping out onto the field to perform.

5. My favorite dessert is ice cream

I'm a fan of all ice creams, but my absolute favorite is from Salt and Straw in Portland, Oregon.

6. Enchanted Rock is my happy place

Located just outside Fredericksburg, Texas, I loved this place before it was cool.

7. I'm a neuroscience major

I actually want to be a lawyer, but I also wanted to major in something that interests me. Brains are pretty cool.

8. I love my family

This is just a picture of my Opie and me, but I love spending time with my whole family and we're all very close (I know he'll read this, so I definitely picked this because my Opie is my favorite)

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
