I Asked My Boyfriend What To Write About And Here Are The 8 Things He Came Up With

We clearly have different article-related interests.

As a writer, I occasionally experience the dreaded phase of writer's block. I have certain ways and methods of finding inspiration, though for this piece I thought I'd do something a little different. I asked my boyfriend what I should write about and I quickly found out that he and I do not have the same article-related interests.

As I tried to search through his scattered thoughts and make an article about one of them, I decided it may just be easier to write them all here.

1. Golf

He said that he'd be interested in an article about golf. While I can see how many would find interest in a golf-related article, I just don't really understand the game enough to even begin to formulate a thought or an opinion. In fact, up until about a year ago, I thought that there was only one hole on a golf course that was on the complete opposite side of the tee. I thought that hole-in-ones were absolutely insane as the ball had to travel miles over forests and ponds and hills. I thought an 18 hole course just meant that it took about 18 tries to get to the hole.

2. Fishing

OK, another topic that I could see how some would be interested in, but, again, not something I could personally expand on. I've been fishing many times in my life, but nothing too fancy. I can name a couple of specific fish, though I only know the majority of them through my boyfriend's teachings. I have also developed a large fear of bodies of water, so fishing is often a scary experience for me, but I have learned to enjoy it — as long as the fishies go back into the water safe and sound.

3. Living On A Budget

I think he may have just said this because, as an unemployed college student, I am currently living on a tight budget... which I suck at. Maybe he's just calling me out by saying this. Maybe he wants me to write an article about this so I would be forced to do research on how to adequately live on a budget. Whatever.

4. Cars

I don't know anything about cars. I know which ones are prettiest, most luxurious, shiniest. But I DO NOT know anything about what is going on under the hood of a car. That's my boyfriend's department. He knows pretty much everything there is to know about cars and he's actually taught me a decent amount. You know, the basics, like the fact that cars need an oil change more than once a year.

5. Responsibilities Of Living Without Parents

This is pretty relevant to our lives, as we both live without our parents, 1,600 miles away. It does come with quite a bit of responsibilities - I could actually write an article about this one. Maybe in the future, I could write an article explaining what it takes to live on your own, especially within the first year of moving away from home... interesting. Good idea, boyfriend.

6. Clash Of Clans

All of a sudden, my boyfriend has an obsession with this game that was really popular in, I don't know, 2012? He plays the game the majority of his free time. He talks about it all the time, he watches Youtube videos about it, and he tried very hard to get me to play it. Once again, I do not share this interest with him. Clash Of Clans? Not my thing.

7. (Turf) Grass

I feel like I need to expand on my boyfriend's interest in this: he works with ground maintenance at a golf course. He also has a little extra love for all things pesticide, fungicide, insecticide, grass, and more grass. He talks about grass-related things a lot of the time and watches a lot of grass-related videos. Don't get me wrong, I'm really glad that he loves what he does and has a lot of interest in it all... grass and all things related just aren't my things.

8. "The Bachelorette"

This is a lie. He has absolutely no interest in this; I've tried to explain the show and it's complexities to him multiple times, which was basically like speaking to a brick wall. He just does not care, which is very understandable.

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?

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. 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.
