Odyssey Taught Me I Could Take My Passion For Writing Seriously

My interest in writing started while I was in middle school. Then it continued throughout high school. In middle school, I began writing my own songs. Eventually, I began to have an interest in writing poetry while in high school. I enjoyed having my public speaking class in high school because I was able to write creatively. Honestly, I did not think that anyone would see anything I would write until I joined Odyssey. It was a nice for me to write articles on topics I was interested in. I liked that there was an audience that could read my articles, and relate to them.

I have mentioned in previous articles that I am a shy person, and it can be difficult sometimes for me to express myself verbally. It is easier for me to express myself through writing. Well, I know that I need to find my voice, and not be afraid to stick up for myself in order to survive in this world.

That time will come, and when it does I will be surprised. Writing will somehow be in my future because there are many stories that I would like to share. Whether that would be from others' perspectives or my own. I am talented, and I will have a bright future ahead of me. If I continue to prove that I can achieve the goals that I set for myself by working hard.

But I would also like to be proud of myself for proving the people who doubted me wrong. People will say anything negative to get under your skin, and you have to not let what they say bother you. I struggle with not letting the little things bother me, and this is something I will continue to work on. At the end of the day, all that matters is that I am happy with choices I make in life, and not regretting them.

As I continue to write, I hope I can inspire people, and prove that nice people still exist.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
