30 Article Ideas I (Thankfully) Never Used, But Kind Of Wish I Had
Natalie Austin

This time last year, I was heavily debating whether or not I had the time needed to begin writing for Odyssey. Thankfully, I decided this would be worth my time, and it was!

I now have a few dozen published articles in my name, another bullet point on my resume, and an experience I would not trade for anything.

Every week, I wrote about whatever I chose. Some weeks, it was on my faith. Others, it was on dealing with school. And occasionally, it was on topics like just how rude it is to overlook the amazing holiday that is Thanksgiving!

With expectations of an article every week, my creativity often became desperate for a topic better than what I had written just seven days ago. Thankfully, some of my more - um - creative ideas never made it to an audience. Even so, I still believe they have potential for another writer to pick up and run with!

Here's a few ideas that sat around my dorm on sticky notes before I embarrassedly threw them away when my friends said, "um, really?". They're not the best, but they could be a lot worse!

So long, Odyssey!

It's been exciting.

It's been challenging.

It's been rewarding.

And most importantly, it's been fun!


Love,

Natalie Austin (UNC Charlotte, Editor-In-Chief)

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Soccer, Spain and Racism
