Blessed to be a part of this amazing group!

A Much Deserved Thank You for The Carroll News Part 2

A year ago, I wrote an Odyssey article entitled “A Much Deserved Thank You For The Carroll News.” At this time, I was just taking on my new role as Campus Editor, and I was still pretty shy and timid in the newsroom. The whole of my freshman year, I quietly sat and observed all the editors hard at work, and from time to time got to copy edit some of their pages. When I was given the opportunity to have the role of Campus Editor, I was elated and terrified, which made my first few issues very stressful but extremely fun.

Fast forward to today, a year later. I am currently serving as Editor-in-Chief at The Carroll News, a role I could only ever dream of having. I have had a year full of laughter and amazing memories as well as a year full of stress and tears of frustration, while serving as the Campus Editor.

Although I spent my column space writing about the seniors this week, I still feel that I didn’t express just how much I love them all, so I will continue my sappy rant here.

Seniors, you all have impacted my life so much. Every single week I knew that I could count on Tuesday nights to be filled with craziness and fun. I looked forward to joking with Op/Ed about how Campus was the best section, fighting with everyone about whose quotes should make the wall, laughing about our Minnesota memories and just getting to know each other.

There were weeks where the Campus section itself was a mess. There were weeks I was extremely overwhelmed because stories fell through or sources didn’t respond. There were weeks where I was writing three articles and I was super annoyed. There were weeks when I didn’t think Campus would ever make it through checks because it was 11 p.m., and I still had to write my articles and the Campus Briefs. It wasn’t smooth sailing, but the joy you all brought me really pushed me through those rough weeks.

The friends and the memories I made in the newsroom this past year have been unforgettable. The newsroom has become my home and the people in it my family.

Grateful is an understatement. I love you all, and I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for all of you talented, passionate individuals. As I ended my column, I’ll end this article: Onward On!

11 Songs That Will Hit You In The Feels, No Doubt About It

One of my favorite things to do when it comes to music is making different playlists on Spotify. I find it so fun to go back to old songs, find new ones, and categorize them into my different playlists. We all have that one playlist that we resort to when we are really feeling some type of way — also known as a "feels" playlist. If you have one of these playlists or feel ~inspired~ to make one, here are 11 songs that are a must to add.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.
