Best Albums Of 2016 (So Far)

So far 2016 has been the year of releasing good music. There have been so many good albums released throughout the year that I spend almost all of my free time listening to music. Music is always playing when walking to class, doing homework, in the car, and basically all the time. I have found a ton of good music so I compiled a list of my five favorite albums from 2016 (so far):

1. I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It- The 1975

The 1975’s second studio album was amazing, topping both the US and UK charts upon release. I listen to a song off of this album nearly every day because it is that good. The album is the perfect mix of slower ballads and upbeat jams. Every song was written by members of the band and highlights their incredible talent.

Favorite Songs: She’s American, Change of Heart, Somebody Else, Loving Someone, Paris, UGH!, and Love Me

2. Mind Of Mine- Zayn

After leaving One Direction, Zayn’s debut album was in a completely different direction and a definite success. Zayn had a part in writing every song on the album and his smooth vocals are featured on every track.

Favorite Songs: She, Wrong, Like I Would, Drunk, Befour and Borderz

3. Lemonade- Beyoncé

Queen B once again delivered an unbelievable album. It was filled with her powerful voice and emotionally charged lyrics. The visual album adds a whole other dimension to the album, I highly recommend checking it out.

Favorite Songs: Hold Up, Sorry, Formation, Don’t Hurt Yourself, and Freedom

4. The Ride- Catfish and the Bottlemen

Alternative rock band, Catfish and the Bottlemen, released their second album in late May. The album is filled with many different songs, ranging from slower ballads to high-energy rock songs.

Favorite Songs: Soundcheck, 7, Emily, Glasgow, and Heathrow.

5. Wild World- Bastille

Bastille’s recently released, second studio album is brilliant. Front man, Dan Smith’s distinct and unique vocals make the songs even more incredible. The album is filled with fun, energetic songs that would be amazing live (hopefully, they’ll be going on tour soon).

Favorite Songs: Blame, Good Grief, Fake It, Snakes, Two Evils, and Lethargy.

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. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. 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 or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
