Gary Chapman introduced the 5 Love Languages 23 years ago helping people express and experience love in a way that fills up their love tanks. For many years, people have taken tests to determine their love languages, their partner's love language, and their friends' and family's love language.

Acts of service, quality time, receiving gifts, words of affirmation, and physical touch have all been used to maximize human connection. It's been used to heal relationships, rear children, and better co-workers.

Most recently, we've seen comedically how to love people who love Target, Chick-fil-a, Costco etc. That's all great, but Odyssey content creators need love too!

We've had the singles edition, children edition, military edition, marriage edition, and loving teens edition.

It's about time we have the 5 Love Languages, Odyssey content creator edition:

1. Acts of Service: "Hey, I shared your article."

Happy Tears, I promise.

Giphy

Honestly, you could have just read our articles and that would have been enough, but going through the trouble of sharing our article. It honestly means the world!

2. Quality Time: "Do you want to get together and talk about article ideas?"

Giphy

Reading articles together or spending time writing is also acceptable, but nothing fills our love tanks like sharing our joy in writing. So yes, let's grab a cup of coffee and talk about Odyssey!

3. Gifts: "I bought you something from the Odyssey Online Shop."

Giphy

Buying us Odyssey merchandise shows us that you pay attention to detail. It shows that you care and that you know we write for Odyssey. Yes, it means the world to receive an Odyssey sweatshirt, Odyssey hat, and other Odyssey goods unexpectedly.

While there are plenty of gifts you can purchase at the shop, you can't go wrong with other perfect gifts for writers: pens and journals!

4. Words of Affirmation: "You're such a good writer! I love your articles."

Giphy

"Has your article gone live yet this week?"

*Commenting a well-written response to the article*

"I love you like you love writing."

Please, tell us more. As writers, we already love words, but we thrive on words of affirmation! So keep them coming because we can always ear more of it.

5. Physical Touch: Typing up the perfect headline on your laptop.

Giphy

What can I say? Most of our work is done online so it's a little difficult to find ways to fill up someone's love tank with physical touch. Let them use your laptop to type up the perfect headline and that will be close enough. But when all is said in done and they've met their weekly deadline, congratulate them with a hug.

What's your love language?

Chances are if you're reading this, you or a loved one you know writes for Odyssey. Find out their love language and get started, but just know that you can't go wrong with using all of the love languages.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.
