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

It's been real, y'all.

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.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

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.
