8 Reasons Why Video-gamer Girls Are The Best

Being interested in and being able to play video-games doesn't mean you have to be a male. Female gamers exist and they're ready to show off their skills. Some may even be able to dominate their friends with their skills, so here are a few reasons why gamer-girls are the best when it comes to playing video-games.

1. We can talk to a fellow gamer for hours about our favorite video-games

You like The Legend of Zelda? Oh me too! *goes on for hours about characters, dungeons, storylines and bosses* or... You couldn't get over how the beginning scene in The Last Of Us drew you into the game? Me neither!

2. Never get bored if video-games is an option when hanging out

Conversation starting to become dry? Pull up a chair, take out the controllers and get to playing. Conversation about the game-play will surely happen. Plus if the person you're hanging out with isn't a fellow gamer, you could always teach them how to play. Show off those gaming skills.

3. We will always have merch on hand or nearby to show off

Oh the joys of merchandise when it comes to video-games. GameStop, Hot Topic, Spencers, and even Target will have loads of merch options for your video-game heart to fall in love with. (Take all my money please!)

4. Appreciation for what someone else may or may not like in a video-game

Some may enjoy music scores for a video-game more while others tend to focus on the game-play or story. Everyone's game experience is different and some may like the game while others don't. It's always an interesting conversation when someone may or may not like what you like

5. Competitive mindset

Four words: Let the games begin!

6. We are patient

Can't finish the level because you're constantly dying? Well one good thing about being a gamer girl is that we are patient and will not stop until we get past the level or finally reach the next checkpoint.

7. We are always up for some friendly competition

We are always down to show off our skills, hoping we can show off that we are the best, but of course, have to keep it "friendly". If we don't win, we'll probably act like it's not a big deal, but deep down we were really hoping you wouldn't get in that last KO.

8. Make life fun and full of adventure

Just like an amazing video-game, we are always up for a little fun and adventure to spice up our lives.

Girls playing video-games is not abnormal. It has become incredibly popular in today's society, so get out there girls and show that you can dominate at video-games.

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.

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.
