Discussing The Obvious- Why You Shouldn't Write An Article When You're Tired

When you are tired everything is horrible. You have this tendency to not care at all. Right now, I am very tired. Still, I want to write an article that inspires those around me to be the best of themselves. I want those who read this article to get something out this article. It may not be much, but I am sure to give you quality worth reading.

Odyssey articles are fun to write. You get to enjoy the world that you create in each piece that you publish. My favorite part about writing an article is when I share information that ends up being constructive in people’s lives. Currently, the constructive material that I want to share is not coming out very well in this article. When your mind hits a billion road blocks, all you see is yourself closing your eyes and drifting off into a deep beautiful sleep. You usually don’t get any important ideas from being tired. Most of what you will be thinking is muddled down into this hazy distorted picture. Then you wake up the next day thinking about why you forced words out of your mind and onto a computer screen.

If I were smart right now, I wouldn’t be sharing this article. In fact, the only important material that I have shared with you so far is extremely obvious- do not to write when you are tired. I want to tell myself, “You can do better Michaela,” but I know that’s a lie for the state I’m in right now. I could be writing about something very interesting. Like this cute little puppy that I saw today. Or the fact that I find pineapples the coolest fruit around. I think pineapples are so cool that I have a giant pineapple tapestry in my dorm room that I paid $60 for (yeah, that wasn’t the best decision). I bet I could even write an interesting review on why I think pop culture is not overrated. All these subjects sound so interesting for someone who is mentally functioning at full capacity. But alas, I don’t believe I can produce something to its full potential. So instead, I will just rant about all these things I could say but won’t take any time to do.

Currently, I have this depiction in my mind of me finishing my last words. I can go to sleep and wake up the next day realizing that I obviously did not write the best article. I’ll probably be embarrassed about the lack of importance in my words. For now, I will live with the regret that I am going to have later on. Maybe I will inspire people to write when they aren’t ready to fall on their face. But then again, isn’t that what college is all about? I hope you found something meaningful out of this article. If you didn’t, I am happy you want to waste your time reading something that is probably ridiculous. Stay tuned for next week everybody.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
