A Letter To The New Me

It's time for a change.

A Letter To The New Me

Dear New Me,

I want you to know that it is time to start living the way that you want and desire. Forget what people think, say, or do. In the end, all that matters is you.

We have come a long way these past few years; from heartbreaks to failures, we have gone through it all. There were times when you let yourself be taken advantage of, talked down to, or humiliated. I want you to know that those days are officially over.

Look how you have grown and transformed. Nobody could ever say that you went through hell and back for those you loved and cared for.

I want you to start looking after yourself even more now. I want you to live free, unapologetically happier, and without worries. I want you to continue to fight every day and to get sh•t done.

I also want you to put yourself first before anybody else on this Earth. No man is worth stressing over and you have to love yourself more than you ever love someone else.

Be sure to stick with those that are loyal to you and your time. Those who are happy when you are happy, those who cry with you during your worst moments. Please do yourself a favor and ditch anybody that comes your way who only comes by to disturb your peace of mind. Be with those who uplift you when you cannot do so yourself.

I want you to love with your whole heart and never be afraid to let the right one in.

Do not ever be afraid to stand up for yourself in times of injustice. And don't ever be afraid to raise your voice when you feel like you are listened to. (Of course, figuratively, never literally. That's how you lose the argument.)

Take time to nourish your soul, to talk to yourself nicely, to read new books, travel, go out for a walk. But most importantly, do what makes you and your soul happy.

I hope you continue to find yourself in the midst of this world and that you continue to better yourself. Please do yourself a favor and learn from your mistakes; with this, you'll grow wiser.


The Old Me.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
