Poetry On Odyssey: To Girls Growing Up In The Age Of Trump

You are not just another pussy to be grabbed.

Poetry On Odyssey: To Girls Growing Up In The Age Of Trump

To celebrate Women's History Month, I wanted to write a poem directed towards girls growing up during the Trump Era (but mainly with just the theme of women empowerment). Unfortunately during this time both girls and women have been degraded by men. What I want both girls and women to know is that we are important.

We are strong, brave women who deserve the same amount of respect as men get. I should mention now that this is in no way trying to steer hate towards men, more so continue to voice about the importance of women and push for the support in men doing something right. Instead of fighting over "who is more right" lets fight together on the right side of history.

To all of my sisters,

Not just my cisters,

But my sisters.

I want you to know that during this era,

Where the only thing you are supposedly known for,

Is your smile and breasts,

That you are more.

Your legs may be long like valleys,

And your skin might be caramel,

But that does not define you.

Staying home is not for us,

Or rather...

What we are meant to do.

To all you little girls who dream to become President,

Become President.

To all you little girls who wish to discover the hidden depths of space,

Discover the Universe.

Why should we be degraded to nothing more than objects?

Hands to hold, lips to be kissed?

We are more than that.

What we are, is women.



What we are not are




Or pussies to be grabbed.

We are women who deserve the same amount of respect

As you give our so called "president".


To all the little girls who are growing up in this scary era,

I just want you to know that you are more than an object.

You belong in this world and the same respect as everyone else.

While it may seem impossible just remember that

In 2020 we will be able to make a change.

So be the change.

And let's make women equal...

Because this is long overdue.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
