High School The "Supposed To Be" Best Four Years

High School The "Supposed To Be" Best Four Years

We need to make high school a more enjoyable experience.


This is my first ever writing on here it might not be the best but I know I'll get better over time but for my first writing I'm writing something I know a lot about so I hope it's good for my first one.

I'm a sophomore in high school. They say that high school is supposed to be the best 4 years of your life, but in reality, it's not the best 4 years of your life. You're finding yourself and who your friends are. You're also trying to figure out what you want to become and what goals you truly have. High school these days isn't about who you truly are. It's about whether you can fit in or survive the stares and rumors. People divide people into all different kind of stereotypes and categories. That's what is really wrong with our teenagers today.

Teenagers don't realize the damage that they do to each other until it's too late or they get caught. Teenagers get depressed over this especially the ones that try to fit in, the ones that get bullied, the ones that only get attention when people need them, and the ones that get singled out. Kids need to stop judging people and putting them into stereotypes it's not helping our world at all it's just showing younger people to grow up and judge someone without knowing them. When I walked into high school I realized this isn't going to be easy everyone is divided and self-centered they only care about themselves and the people they bring along with them. High school people need to focus more on bringing each other together and not separating because it would be much more fun for people to get the actual "high school experience" if they didn't feel like someone was targeting them or staring them down, we high school people need to come together as one and not judge people based on the outside but we need to know what's on the inside first. People are always so quick to judge but we don't need to do that anymore.

High school really isn't the best 4 years of your life because you're figuring out a lot of things. The only way high school is going to be the best is if you make the most out of it. I think we need to set a better example in the world for high school kids and teenagers so that we can make high school a more enjoyable experience.

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.

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.
