To Every Editor In Chief (Especially Mine)

To Every Editor In Chief (Especially Mine)

Thank you for teaching us your ways


To the Editor In Chiefs for Odyssey (especially mine),

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

Thank you for taking us all in as your own little ducklings and teaching us your ways. I would not be the same writer/content creator I am today without you. I mean let's face it, who else would put up with the last minute articles, grammar problems, and messed up punctuation? For our editors who sit hours upon hours staring at a computer screen making sure our grammar is correct, thank you.

Thank you for your patience. Thank you for your wisdom. Thank you for your goofy personality and overall humor. Thank you for being an incredible mentor and being so intentional with everything you do. Thank you for being the one to constantly remind us to capitalize the first letter of every word in the headline. Thank you for providing us with endless laughter whenever we need it. Thank you for being our shoulder to cry on. Thank you for allowing us to express ourselves and truly be who we are with no apologies. Thank you for creating a little family of weirdos who I would do anything for. I could go on and on with a list of thank you's for everything you have done for me and our quirky little family.

On top of having classes of your own, having a social life, and making sure your feet are washed before you go to bed; you spend hours editing articles, making sure we've chosen great topics, and just being there when we need it. So again, thank you.

No amount of words could help explain the gratitude I have towards my EIC and my Odyssey family. As most of us continue our Odyssey journey, many of our editors are leaving and continuing on with their lives away from Odyssey. From all of us content creators to the collegiate editors who are leaving Odyssey and furthering their careers - don't forget about us.

Only a truly dedicated, caring person could take on the role of mentoring young minds who just want to be incredible writers. I cannot describe how lucky I am to be a content creator for Odyssey and how blessed I am with a fun-loving EIC who does everything possible to make sure we all succeed. Every EIC is remarkable and they do everything they can to make sure our boats stay afloat and we take two steps forward every time we create new content so we can be confident when we hit that submit button every week.

To every Editor In Chief out there:

Thank you for teaching us your ways and assisting us in building our writing careers. Every editor deserves a huge hug from all of their content creators and a ginormous thank you for all the hard work they put in every day just for us.

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.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.

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.
