Netflix Keeps Burning Us - Just Like 2020 Has

Reminder: we started the year off by them taking Friends away from us.

Okay, Netflix. We officially have beef.

As a reminder to those reading this, we should have known that 2020 was going to be a disaster because they decided to get rid of Friends on December 31, 2019. They literally took our joy away from us before 2020 even began, and we had to start our year waiting for HBO Max to launch so we could finally have access to a show that made us feel happy and had been with us for too long for us to imagine our lives without it.

Well, friend, I'm here to ruin the remaining days of 2021 with bad news coming to us, yet again, from Netflix.

If you haven't already seen the list of items that are leaving the streaming platform at the end of 2020, you might want to check it out. There's a whole list of shows and movies that are near and dear to many people, but there are two, specifically, that have large audiences that are going to be very upset. Here we go:

First up: say goodbye to Gossip Girl.

Yup, we can kiss our high school gossip and scandal days goodbye because Gossip Girl is officially making its exit. How will we fill our nights with watching teenagers with insurmountable wealth live their lives however they want without a care in the world? We won't. Those who love this show know that there is a reboot in the works, and it's being reported that both the reboot and original show will make their way over to HBO Max. But, until then, we will be without this world we all wanted to be a part of in 2009. Netflix - this one hurt, and I'm not sure I could fully forgive you. And if this one didn't break your heart, get ready for a real heart-stopper.

We also have to say goodbye to The Office.

There. I ripped the Band-Aid off. Now, you might not have been all that upset about Gossip Girl, but The Office?! THIS ONE HURTS EVERYONE. Michael Scott, Jim, Pam, Stanley, TOBY. All of them will officially be making their way off of the streaming platform that we thought we could trust. This is one show that has so many followers that I'm surprised there hasn't been more uproar as 2020 draws to a close and we're so much closer to losing them. Having The Office move to NBC's new platform, Peacock, will hurt our hearts and we'll be sad until it's available again for us at the snap of our fingers.

Remember when Netflix had it all?! Well, now it sure as heck doesn't. This time, they've gone too far and I'm not sure it'll be easy to forgive them again since they keep reopening wounds that haven't even healed yet from January.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

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

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

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.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

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.

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 or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
