20 Ways To Make Your 20s Truly Roarin'

There's 10 years to party it up and make your 20s worthwhile

We've all learned a lot from our teenage years, but there's still so much life to look forward to. When I turned 20, I promised myself that I would accomplish more of my goals and would be more open to experiences and honestly, just find ways to live my life better. Now that I'm 20, this next decade is where life really picks up and gets "roarin'."

1. Take more risks. Be more open. Live in the moment.

Don't live with "what ifs". Stay out late, make stupid decisions... (just don't lose your common sense). Don't be afraid of what "could happen" rather focus on enjoying yourself, even if it means doing something stupid and laughing about it later.

2. Appreciate the little things in life.

They're not always noticeable and we all take advantage of them too much.

3. Let go of what you can't control and let life happen.

Sometimes life's just a b***h.

4. Be more adventurous.

Make a day trip somewhere fun. Do something you've never done before. Travel the world. Try a food you never have. Join a new club/organization because it sounds cool. Learn when to say yes instead of no.

5. Be more decisive.

Speak up for yourself. Be your own advocate. It's okay to say no. No one else knows what you want/need except for you. Take a day for yourself or surround yourself with friends. You're not going to be alright if you don't feel like yourself.

6. We're in college. Please for Pete's sake don't act like you're in high school.

Grow up.

7. Don't be afraid to ask for help.

You're your own best advocate. It's okay to ask for help when you need it.

8. Exercise. 

You'll thank yourself later. Or don't. It's your life.

9. Thank those in your life.

We wouldn't be who we are without our friends and family. Don't take friends or family for granted either. More importantly, don't wait for others who don't wait for you. Boy bye.

10. Don't pretend life is better than it is.

It's okay to struggle.

11. Create traditions.

Whether it's with friends or family, they're something that'll give you a reason to see family and/or friends every year even when life gets busy and hectic.

12. Don't be afraid of meeting people.

Whether it's through friends, at a party, in a class, or an organization meeting people is something that brings the potential for new relationships (not just romantic ones).

13. Take every advantage you can to put your best foot forward.

Whether academically, career-wise, or in your personal life- do what's best for you. Make yourself known to professors (past and present), employers, and within your future or current career.

 14. Don't let other's judgment stop you from living your life.

Enough said.

15. Live life in the moment, but don't forget to capture the moments that matter.

Take photos. Lots of them.

16. Learn to love yourself as you are.

After all, there's only one you in this world.

17. Love has its own timing.

18. Learn when you need to recognize that you're wrong.

But also stand up for yourself when you know you're right (but be gracious). No one wants someone yelling at them attempting to prove that they're right (even when they're wrong).

19. Work towards your goals and accomplish them.

Goals aren't any good if they don't have a result- whether it's good or bad.

20. Embrace life.

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. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.

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.
