Poetry on Odyssey: Nice To Meet You

A poem about...me.

Poetry on Odyssey: Nice To Meet You
Alexandria Nalevanko

Hi, my name is Alex.

I'm a sophomore at West Chester University.

I'm a business major with an actual passion for journalism.


But I know you don't care about that.

I know you'll forget about that by tomorrow.

Or maybe that's my anxiety talking--that's its favorite thing to do.


Maybe you won't forget that just like you,

I always wonder what words people use to describe me when I'm not around.

I wonder if I said anything that hurt someones feelings.

I worry that maybe I'll be the last person on the invite list.


But then again I really don't want to be invited at all.

Hi, my name is Alex.

My toes don't look like they belong on a human and I make a ton of mistakes,

I'm left handed and my car has never been over 65 MPH.

I'm scared of a lot of things, but at least I can pull off the color yellow sometimes.

I try to be a good person and I think I'm doing okay, but sometimes this 5'4" body can't contain it's opinion.

I regret things in the morning, then I do them again.

I fail. I learn. I try again.

Bikes and beer. Thats what I've gotten from all of this.

Moving to Colorado has been a dream come true for sure, but its hard not to notice all the little things that are different from my small, suburban Chicago hometown. I have loved living near the foothills and I still gasp sometimes when I walk around a corner and see them. Trust me, its a vast difference from the fields and fields of corn back home.

Thanksgiving

As much as I love birthdays, Christmas, Easter and Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. There's something so special about sitting down with family to enjoy a delicious meal without the added stress of finding the perfect gift for every single family member like Christmas. As an added bonus, Thanksgiving usually falls a little before finals week so it offers some time to recharge and then prepare for your last round of tests. In addition to being thankful for some time off from school, here are a few more things to remember to be thankful for.
