pinterest ideas

With the invention of smartphones, boredom tends to never be a possibility, and let's be real: college students are usually super busy with homework and hanging out with friends that we never really have spare time to do every single thing we'd love to do. But when we do have a minute to spare, our hands absentmindedly reach for our smartphones immediately and click on the all-too-familiar social media icons that we enjoy so much, and ultimately waste our time.

One of the most underrated and pretty productive social media sites, however, is none other than Pinterest: a site where you can search a topic that scans throughout the internet for what you're looking for and fills your feed with pictures and all of your recent searches. The timeline becomes unique to the user specifically, and what's even better is that the feed is never-ending no matter how far you scroll down.

The next time you want to tap Instagram or Twitter when you have a spare minute, open or download Pinterest. Then, search these topics I've listed to have the ultimate experience all while being pretty productive by fueling your dreams with inspiration, and you might even find a new obsession to add to the slew of apps you love.

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.

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?

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.
