45 Library Thoughts Everyone With A Library Card Has
Tamás Mészáros

As someone who has held a library card for years, because of the school i went to or the area of town I lived in, I know my home library pretty well. I also know several other people who use the library and the privileges of a library card to their full advantage. Whether it was the teachers looking for books on any subject, kids looking for video games, or teens spending hours on the computers, the library has always had a lot of people come through its doors. Here are some thoughts from any library card owner who uses it:

1. I don't use this enough

2. It's so great that they have free DVD/Blu Ray rentals

3. I forgot the CD rentals!

4. The sign said something about renting game consoles as well as the games

5. And didn't they have e-books now? for Kindles or something?

6. Why is this library so big?

7. I can't find the book I want

8. Searching for non-fiction is so annoying.

9. I give up. I'll just wander the aisles and hope I find the right section.

10. *10 minutes later* never mind. I guess I'll go ask for help

11. Ooh, Garfield comics.

12. I'll look it up on the computer instead

13. I can't remember the title or the author.

14. Ignore the other people, they probably aren't staring at you

15. Finding an employee, literally everywhere you didn't want them

16. Like at the end of the aisle, staring while you read book you won't check out

17. Figuring out the elevators, and what is on each floor at any door.

18. Why is the library so big anyway?

19. *wonders aimlessly around the Children's section* *tries not to be creepy*

20. *finds Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows* Just to reread the best scene ever- Molly's cussing.

21. Oh, yeah, I was going to read that one series that's definitely downstairs.

22. What was the author's name again?

23. *arrives downstairs at teen section* I don't even know the title.

24. I can't look it up based on the plot, though...

25. Time to search for it, in every stack of books in this section.

26. *finds 3 series that I've already read*

27. *spots at least 5 new books to check out at a later date*

28. *picks up a couple books to reread*

29. Ooh, that title looks cool.

30. What a cool cover...

31. *checks inside flap* ... aaaaaaand the plot sucks. Dang it.

32. What was I looking for again?

33. Bag's full, guess it's time to check out.

34. *heads to check out*

35. *cue flashbacks of being buzzed at the security gates for not checking out correctly*

36. Because I usually have a bad experience with the machines

37. Let's check out with a person this time.

38. *gets to the front of the line* *gets out all of the books in the backpack*

39. *hands over library card* Why is she typing things in?

40. *gets card back* I handed her my student ID!!!

41. *embarrassed * My card was right there, behind the ID in my wallet.

42. *completely reorganizes bag for travel to the car*

43. *rushes because of the people behind me*

44. *walks out, checks phone* Wow, I only in there for an hour this time!

45. Crap, I forgot to get that book series! Guess I'll get it next week.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
