Dear New Roommate

Sometimes finding a roommate can be hard, but maybe we were made for each other.

Wallpaper Abyss

I feel as though I know everything about you, yet I know nothing about you.

Over the past three years we have had our ups and downs in our lives and I can’t wait to be able to grow closer to you. You and I have a lot in common already, and I know that we’ll find more to obsess over together in the next few months.

We all have our problems. You know this, and I know this.

We also have our differences, which I’m sure we’ve pointed out plenty of times to ourselves already.

Both of us have had our ups and downs with roommates over the past three years, and I am so happy to be able to finally find a roommate who feels like the perfect fit! We’re both crazy at times and enjoy laughing together, but as we venture through our senior year together I’m sure there will be plenty of tears, especially as choir camp comes around.

As you know, I am an introvert and pretty much a homebody. I don’t go to the parties on the weekends, mostly because I would rather spend time with a few close friends or cuddled up in a blanket watching Netflix. I enjoy my alone time to recharge, as introverts do, so I hope you’re not offended if I don’t talk to you much after a weekend choir tour. (Though I don’t think you’ll mind too much since everyone is tired of everyone after choir tours.)

From what I know about you, you’re more of an extrovert, and you enjoy the parties on the weekends, to an extent at least. You enjoy being around people and messing with them in cute and funny ways. Of course, I can’t forget about your hockey obsession. How could I forget the person who introduced me to Check Please!

We have our common interests, such as our love of cats (I’m determined to cover our room in cats this year) and our love of musicals (which will be on play Non-Stop throughout the year). Just as you are determined to introduce me to new and amazing things, I will do the same.

I believe that our friendship will flourish over the next few months. We will grow closer together and we will find new things to obsess over together. Everything will turn out perfectly in its own way as things often do.

Hopefully we won’t grow tired of each other as roommates often do, that way we can bug each other well into the future. I love you and I absolutely cannot wait to see you again very soon!

(P.S. We need more pictures together!)

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.
