This Isn’t A Goodbye, But A See You Later

It's been real, y'all.

95
not a goodbye

This is a sad one, but I wouldn't feel write (haha, get it?) if I didn't address this.

This is the last article I'll ever write for Odyssey. I talked about it before, and I'll talk about it again: Writing for Odyssey, writing in general, has been amazing.

The experience, the audience, and the overall confidence I've gained from writing weekly articles every week for the past year or so will never be forgotten or ignored.

I use to be that tortured writer who'd write something, delete it, and then write again because I never felt like my work was good enough to see the light of day. Now, I feel like I can go out there and apply to all the magazine jobs I want! Whether I get the gig or not is a whole different story.

Regardless, I just wanted to say how thankful I am to have had this opportunity. And to have been able to reach so many of you with my words when years ago, little, shy me would've never imagined.

Odyssey allowed me to showcase my

voice through my words. I accomplished so many things with Odyssey. For example, my graduation article was the first article that surpassed 1k views! I'll never forget the experience, the people, or the articles I've written in the span of a little over a year. I don't like goodbyes so don't consider this one. Consider it a "see you later." Maybe you'll see my name next to an online article again someday (hopefully in a future issue of Teen Vogue). Maybe you'll see me writing news articles someday! Who knows?

All I know is, this isn't the end. It's only the beginning. It's been real, y'all.

Do you endure a lot of persecution as a Christian but remember when you decided you wanted to "be like Christ"?

Didn't Christ suffer persecution? Didn't he suffer people talking about him, betraying him, determined to misunderstand him, and hate him?

It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D.

When Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in by the Supreme Court, she insisted overturning Roe v. Wade wasn't on her agenda. That landmark case made it possible for pregnant people across America to legally choose whether to have an abortion. There are many reasons a person would want to terminate their pregnancy. Money, age, health and sexual assault are just some of the reasons a person would choose to get an abortion.

The girl who was supposed to be forever

You become best friends thinking you’ll never leave each others side, that bff’s literally means forever and ever. You pick someone and you click. Random trips to wherever, tons and tons of photos. You spend years building a relationship and a special bond thinking it’ll be there when you’re gray and wrinkly. The endless nights staying up and talking about anything and everything, the stupidest things. Meeting each other’s families, calling their parents yours. You plan your whole life around theirs, future kids being besties and houses next door to each others.
