Home Items You'll Need For The Best Semester Yet

In my first ever article that I wrote a little less than a year ago, I wrote about the items I bought for my dorm and absolutely loved.

This year, I'm upgrading from a dorm to an apartment so I'm going to be cooking more and decorating more space as well. As such, I'm going to need more stuff!

So, perhaps in starting a tradition here on Odyssey, I wanted to add more items that I've bought during this past year and ones that I'm going to be purchasing soon.

1. Tote Bags

Large grocery bags. Enough said.

But in all seriousness, they're great. Get a stylish one or one that you like. Use it as a normal purse, or as storage for small items, or anything you want. I love them so much and have a ton.

2. Pots and Pans

This one seems like a no-brainer if you plan on cooking, but I didn't realize that I under-bought and needed more than one if I'm making elaborate, healthier meals as I wanted. I would say two of each would be good, especially if you get one small and one large.

3. Tupperware

You're going to make leftovers if you cook and you won't want to waste it. That's inevitable.

Good food storage is essential if you cook, but still a good investment if you don't because some dining halls let you take food, or maybe you'll have extras from a restaurant that you want to keep.

4. Microwave

No matter how much I want to cook, there will be times when I want a quick meal (mac and cheese). A microwave is needed for that, so onto the list it goes.

5. Tapestries

I would say any sort of wall decor would be good as well (photos, paintings, etc). But I like tapestries because they're large and can be hung up easily and with items that won't damage the walls.

In addition to that, you can find a ton of different ones with various styles online so it's a good way to make a room feel well decorated.

6. Diffuser

Finally, to my most recommended item ever.

Yes, I wrote to get a diffuser a year ago. However, I'm putting it again because I cannot stress how much I love it. Please invest in one if you can. With the different scents, you can wake up easier in the mornings, or make your room cozier at night.

My two short lists obviously don't cover everything you might need. I focused more on forgotten stuff that probably isn't as important as huge items.

However, I think it's the little stuff that makes a home space go from good to great.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time
JoinOneLove

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Why go somewhere fun when you can go home?

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.

Airports

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

Airports

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.
