Meet ASU Odyssey: Amanda Fennell

Hi! My name is Amanda Fennell, and I am a reporter for Arizona State University Odyssey. I used to write for Penn State's Odyssey team, while I attended PSU Abington and majored in Criminal Justice. For personal reasons, I took a break from school, and thankfully have been given the opportunity to enroll in ASU online classes, where I will major in...well...Something new! All of the crime shows are great to watch, but I decided making them real life for me as a career just wasn't the best choice. I am ready for new beginnings, a great positive outlook on things, and a new Odyssey team full of equally wonderful people!

Straying away from school, let me give you further insight on my life. I am originally from Brooklyn, New York, but moved just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania when I was younger. Yes, we do consume a copious amount of cheesesteaks! I live with my boyfriend and a few of my closest friends...a group of all guys...And then me. Let me tell you, that gets quite interesting. However, I can't say that the toilet seat has been left up more than twice in the two years we've all lived together, so I guess they stray away from the stereotypes. And before you ask, yes, Saturdays are mostly for the boys, and it is usually full of Yuenglings, junk food, and Fortnite. Also, I have learned to become wonderful wing-woman.

I love to paint, do photography, draw, create artsy stuff, and obsess over Disney. I honestly am an encyclopedia for Disney, especially Walt Disney World. I can't say where my love for the popular vacation spot started, but in my twenty-one years of life, I've been there well over thirty times. My goal is to get to Disneyland, and then the parks in other countries! Baby steps, though.

I also work as a Barista at Starbucks. I can honestly say that I have never been happier at a job in my entire life, and I plan on being there for a while. Also, the menu never gets boring! Being able to come up with the craziest drinks is awesome!

I really love to write, and my mom still finds passages from stories I made up when I was in kindergarten. I hope that everything I write for this team can inspire, reach out to, and inform everyone that reads it! Even if it's a good laugh or a new food item for you to try, I hope that you can take something from my page, and I look forward to creating!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

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

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.

Disney

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.
