This has been an amazing opportunity.

Dear Odyssey,

Thank you so much for this opportunity. I've learned so much this last year and a half.

A huge thank you goes to my OG ME Angelina Matarozzi for reaching out to me that one night over Facebook and asking me if I'd be interested in joining this company for their new group at my school. At the time, I'd only seen/read a few articles from the site, but I never knew that I could be one of the people who could actually write for it! Thank you Ang, for helping me get started and for all the guidance you gave me. I hope your new position at Odyssey HQ is treating you well!

Thank you to my amazing staff, both past and present. You all have done tremendous work and I couldn't be happier working with you all. Seriously, you all are truly rockstars. Oh, and of course shoutouts have to go to my original co-editors, Lauren and Lilly -- you two are superb human beings and I wish you nothing but the best. And thank you to Meagan for stepping in for us for that while there, a huge help!

This has been an amazing journey and I couldn't even believe it would happen if you had talked to me a couple years ago. Especially taking on this leadership role: those that know me know that I'm on the quieter side, but stepping up into this new position has taught me so much. I've learned to compromise, to be firm but fair, and to actually stand up for what I believe in. I've also learned that my prior journalism skills have served me well, but also that Odyssey is all about having creative freedom and power to say what you want. I think that's really cool, especially with the social media aspect involved.

Even though at times it was stressful (i.e: that GroupMe sometimes though!) I honestly wouldn't trade any second of this experience. I've gotten to meet some great people, learn some networking skills, and take with me some amazing pieces for my future portfolio. What more could I ask for?

So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. To Odyssey and everyone I've met through there or because of it, thank you to you all. It's been a wonderful journey. Can't wait to see what happens next for all of us.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
