The Article About Nothing Because I Need To Make A Deadline

The Article About Nothing Because I Need To Make A Deadline

The long-awaited article where I explain what Odyssey actually is.

To be entirely honest, I have no idea what this article is going to be about, but I think we'll find out what it is on the way.

First of all, I would like to thank you all for this journey that you are going to be taking with me, because for the first time ever, we are both equally unaware as to what is happening next.

Usually, I spend at least five minutes trying to plan out what I will be writing for you guys and then think about what I can use for media and tags and if it will be a very good one or if I'm phoning it in.

Sometimes, I plan articles weeks in advance, so you should feel very good about yourselves because I often put a lot of effort in to make sure at least someone will enjoy what I write. But unfortunately, you caught me on a bad week. I have finals starting in a week, I've had a total of three nervous breakdowns over the last two days, and I left this for the last minute, and I have nothing interesting going on to tell you about. However, I am still putting a lot of thought in this.

I care about you all, 18 people that read my articles on a regular basis. (Hi Dad!)

Now that we've gotten this far, and I've been writing for Odyssey for about seven months, I've realized that many people don't know a lot about what it is that I'm doing. So, I think that it would be beneficial to everyone if I took this chance to explain it to you. That seems like something I should write about, isn't it?

(Give me a break, my brain is completely FRIED)

Odyssey is an online publication source that is mainly used by college students around the country. You can probably find an article about anything on Odyssey if you look hard enough, and eighteen thousand articles about Finals week as explain by Gifs from either The Office or New Girl. I write one article for it every week, and sometimes I'll write two a week so I don't have to write something for the week after.

I am part of the Odyssey community at the University Of Maine, where I am currently a freshman who has no idea what she wants to do with her life, as you can see from previous articles. It's been pretty fun, if I say so myself, and I have enjoyed writing for it.

I was planning on leaving it at the end of the school year, but I am seriously thinking about continuing to write for it for a while longer because It's kind of nice to write about something that isn't school work.

If you've liked my articles, or want to give me some validation, like them and share them. Also, check out my personal blog: Kate Went Exploring because I write there too.

Thank you for reading this article, and I should be back to some regularly scheduled fluff pieces next week!

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?
