Dear Best Friend

I'd be lost without you

Dear Best Friend

Dear Best friend,

As a little girl, you meet so many people and you say, "this is my best friend!" You go through life and those friends fade off until one day you realize, you have no idea who those people even are anymore. But then it only takes that one moment to realize who your best friend truly is, and that your life has changed for the better.

I met you in middle school, in one of our classes. We did not know we would become best friends at this time, we were just two girls that sat across from each other. You had a spunky attitude and fun way of dressing. I admired that about you. We were both quiet, but laughed at just about anything, and that was just what I needed.

We would talk here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary. It was that spring that we shared a bunk on a school trip and laughed our pants off at basically everything one another did. The laughing continued through seventh grade and we looked forward to seeing each other every day and telling each other jokes and creating inside jokes that we did not realize would last forever.

I found out I had to move, which was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. But you stuck by me. You literally only had known me for a year and you stuck by my side. You came to visit me almost two hours away almost every weekend and let me come stay with you. We went shopping together, went to the beach and even went on vacations together.

We went through all of high school together, going to different ones, but still feeling like we went to each other's, as we rushed home to video chat and update each other on the gossip. We went through years at different colleges, but of course partying at each other's schools. Helped each other through breakups, loss, and learning. Then became adults and got big girl jobs and moved together to the city.

I honestly don't know how I lasted until eleven years of my life without a best friend like you. I cannot imagine my life without you in it, I know so corny. Laughing together is one of the best things about our friendship. When I am sad, that is all I want to do.

You have helped me become a better person and I forever grateful for you, best friend. I truly love you as a person and am so thankful for that day back in sixth grade that we met.

I love you best friend.


Your best friend and roomie.

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

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
