Five Self-Care Tips To Celebrate The End Of Finals
Brunch News

Some days, you just need to get out of bed and spend a little more time on yourself. Since finals are (at least nearly) over, here are some things to do to treat yourself.

Channel your inner Tom Haverford.

We don't all have the money to go on a real spa day, but buying a nice face mask and lotion for later in the day is definitely something you should splurge on. A nice manicure wouldn't be so bad, either.

Drink a smoothie.

Nothing's better than a smoothie. It tastes like candy, it's cheap, and you're being healthy.

Have a good cry sesh.

I'm proud to say I haven't cried since I went off to college (Almost 5 months - a new record!), but I probably could do with shedding some tears. My friends and I decided we would watch either Charlotte's Web or Bridge to Terabithia, since those are the only two movies that have ever made me cry.


I'm not gonna lie, I pretty much only eat bread and potatoes. Every single lunch I've had at Bruff for the past three months has been a baked potato with a side of potatoes and a bread roll. My freshman fifteen isn't coming from drinking too much, it's coming from carbs. I've been really happy lately, though, and I really think it's the potatoes.


Honestly, cleaning is my favorite way of relieving stress. It's productive and makes me feel like I'm somewhat decent at this adulting thing. Plus, this includes taking long showers, and who doesn't love that?

If you can drag yourself out of bed, these self-care tips are amazing. Of course, staying in and watching Netflix all day works, too.

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.

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.

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.
