Dear Senior Year

Dear Senior Year

I am prepared


As I complete my fall semester of my senior year of college I have a lot of thoughts going through my head. Many of them are my anxieties running wild because again, my life is going to change forever and very soon. But my head is also filled with nostalgic memories of the past three years and hopes for the one ahead of me.

Dear Senior year of College,

I am proud of you for not giving up. You made it this far. I know that getting to my senior year unscathed is not an amazing feat, many do it and many are far more successful than I. You did it kid. You've had many people telling you that you weren't good enough but you also had a huge support system saying otherwise. So, you completed your first semester of Senior Year. As to your Spring Semester (last semester), You will be good to me, I will make sure you treat me well and I will make sure I conquer you.

The previous years have been rough. I have lost many people in my life throughout my college experience. I have grown apart from old friends and new friends as well. At some points, I have even lost myself. But now, about to enter my last semester of my undergrad- I can say without a doubt that I am the happiest I have been since I left for college.

Make sure to help me to continue making the best of this. Make sure that I do my best, not only academically but socially. Make sure I don't only lose people but I gain some too. Make sure I don't dwell on what's coming but live for what 's happening. Make sure I make the most out of this year.

You will be the semester I go and experience life as much as I can no matter how much time I have. You will be the year I don't stress about my GPA or how I'm going to finish writing a 10-page paper in two hours before class, because you are the year that I will be on top of it.

You will help me grow into the person I have always wanted to be and am becoming currently. You will help me not only grow my wings but also soar. I will not sit here and worry about what happens when I graduate and what I am going to do without my best friends, because you will prove to me that these people will always be apart of my life.

You will show me that not everyone leaves. You will show me that not everyone hurts me. And, you will show me that I am the maker of my own happiness. Most importantly you will be there with me to experience this, to experience the happiness and love and friendship. You are the beginning of the next milestone in my life and I am ready to take walk this path hand and hand with you.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

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?

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.

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.
