21 Things I Need To Tell My Older Brother On His 21st Birthday

Love you, bro.

One person in my life who is a constant is my older brother, Davis. Through thick and thin, he's got my back (though he is kind of required to be because he's my family). With his 21st birthday coming up this week, here are 21 things I want my older brother to know on his special day.

1. Even if I don't call you very often, I think about you a lot. 

I just get kind of forgetful and forget that my phone works.

2. Your sense of humor always makes me smile.

As much as I hate puns, you are a pun master.

3. I can always come to you for an honest opinion.

Even if you tell me my hair makes me look like a cartoon character, I at least know that you're honest.

4. You're always awake for a 3 a.m. conversation.

You might be pissed that I woke you up, but you will definitely talk to me. At least until you fall asleep.

5. You have great taste in music.

Metallica, Billy Joel, and classical — your music choices say it all.

6. You may be a jerk sometimes, but you have a kind heart.

Even if you're kind of rude, you have good intentions. Most of the time.

7. When you send me memes or .GIFs, it's the best part of my day.

Never stop sending me memes and gifs. Ever.

8. You're incredibly talented at everything you do. 

Whether you're playing guitar or making guitars, your talent shines through.

9. You're the life of the party. 

The party literally doesn't start until you walk in. Mostly because you're hosting.

10. Even if we're having two different conversations at the same time, I'm always listening to you.

It's a habit we'll never break when we're talking, but I'm always listening to you.

11. You're a better driver then me. 

There. I said it. You're welcome.

12. You like some quirky things, but your quirks are what make you you. 

Dungeons and Dragons, old movies, and vintage cars are what make up your personality.

13. You're a whole lot smarter than you think you are.

Just saying.

14. You should never change for anyone. 

You're great the way you are.

15. You keep our family from being too serious.

If we didn't have you, I think Mom and I would fight way more.

16. Your cooking skills are better than my own. 

Just another thing that you're better at then me (I'm also expecting bacon-wrapped BBQ duck when I come home).

17. You're going to be successful in whatever you do. 

I have a lot of faith in you, older brother. Don't let me down.

18. I'll always give you crap for your Christmas gifts. 

Kazoos as Christmas gifts for the whole family probably wasn't the best idea.

19. You're one of my favorite people.

You know I only like so many people, so you should be excited to be one of them.

20. You're the best older brother I could have ever asked for. 

I may only have one of you (biologically), but I couldn't have asked for a better one.

21. I love you. 

Whether we're one door down or five states away, I'll always love you older brother. Have a great birthday!

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 Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
