Goodbye, Odyssey

To everyone who has read my articles over the past two years, thank you. I appreciate all of the feedback, kind words and stories that have been shared as a result of my writing. To those who I have received backlash from, thank you to you too.

Listening to both sides have helped me grow into someone I am proud to be. Understanding the thoughts of other people has benefited me as a writer. By having negative reviews and differences of opinions, I have only become stronger.

During the next few weeks, I am starting Pastry and Writing school, as well as finishing Hebrew (thank god) and my makeup certification.

Because I have so much on my plate, it is time for me to say goodbye to Odyssey, for now.
I am beyond grateful to be involved in such an incredible publication. I have learned so much and made amazing connections I would have never had if it wasn't for Odyssey.

Two years ago I was going through a lot and the only way I could express myself properly was through my writing. My mind goes a million miles a minute, so typing was the fastest and easiest way to get it all out.

As a result, I'm growing into someone I never knew I could be. I became more observant and my life changed for the better the more I wrote. I now do my best to walk in other people's shoes. Writing has helped me pay attention to detail in many aspects of life. I listen more, I learn more and am open to new experiences than I never was before. Being able to write for the Odyssey has given me a sense of fearlessness and confidence I had lost.

The fact that I have been able to reach so many people when I was writing for myself is one of the most incredible feelings. Now I do what I do not only for myself, but for others who aren't able to voice their emotions or even understand them. I still struggle with understanding how I'm feeling sometimes, but it is all a part of that adventure we call life.

It has taken me a lot to get to where I am and I know how hard it can be. I for sure am not done growing, but I am more grounded than before and have a new passion that I will continue carry with me for the rest of my life.

I wouldn't wish my past experiences upon anyone (for those of you who have read my previous articles or know me personally, you know what some of those are) but if it weren't for those situations, heartaches and losses, I wouldn't be where I am right now.

What I have learned through all of this, is that there is always a silver lining.

10 Shows Netflix Should Have Acquired INSTEAD of Re-newing 'Friends' For $100 Million

Netflix broke everyone's heart and then stitched them back together within a matter of 12 hours the other day.

How does one do that you may wonder. Well they start by announcing that as of January 1st, 2019 'Friends' will no longer be available to stream. This then caused an uproar from the ones who watch 'Friends' at least once a day, myself including. Because of this giant up roar, with some threats to leave Netflix all together, they announced that 'Friends' will still be available for all of 2019. So after they renewed our hope in life, they released that it cost them $100 million.

$100 million is a lot of money, money that could be spent on variety of different shows.

Contemplating Regret

A personal thought on love and regret.

29
views

BASED ON SONNET 116 BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE

LET ME NOT TO THE MARRIAGE OF TRUE MINDS
ADMIT IMPEDIMENTS. LOVE IS NOT LOVE
WHICH ALTERS WHEN IT ALTERATION FINDS,
OR BENDS WITH THE REMOVER TO REMOVE:
O NO; IT IS AN EVER-FIXED MARK.

THE THOUGHT OF YOU AND THE THOUGHT OF US BURNS THE HEAVY DARKNESS OF MY EYELIDS LIKE THE COOL STREAMS OF VODKA THAT SLIDE DOWN MY THROAT. WE WERE IT, YOU WERE IT FOR ME. WE WERE THE KIND OF LOVE, THE TRUE AND UNTAINTED LOVE.

WE WERE SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT.

YOU LEFT A TATTOO ON THE SINEWS OF MY HEART AND BRANDED YOUR TOUCH INTO THE SOFT SKIN OF MY HIPS. I CLOSE MY EYES AGAIN AND ALL I CAN SEE IS YOU, ALWAYS YOU. I'M NOT SURE IF I'LL RECOVER.

OR IF THE RADIANCE OF YOUR SMILE WILL EVER FADE FROM THE STARS.

OR IF THE SOUND OF YOUR LAUGH WILL EVER DISAPPEAR FROM THE FOUR WHITE WALLS OF THIS COLD AND EMPTY ROOM.

BUT HERE'S TO US, THE BROKEN COUPLE WHO COULD NEVER FIND OUR FOOTING IN THE WORLD.

I RAISE A TOAST IN A FRACTURED GLASS FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH A STINGING BITE OF REGRET AND DISAPPOINTMENT. THE SHARP SHARDS CUT MY TONGUE, AND A CRIMSON TIDE BLOCKS THE WORDS I NEVER KNEW HOW TO SAY.

TONIGHT I'LL LOSE YOU AGAIN TO A SEA OF LIGHTS THAT SHINE ALMOST AS BRIGHT AS THE STARS WE USED TO COUNT. THE SAME EXACT STARS THAT YOU SAID WOULD NEVER OUTSHINE MY EYES.
