"Odyssey Rejects" That Shouldn't Be Rejects

An open letter to open letters? Genius.

"Odyssey Rejects" That Shouldn't Be Rejects

It’s the Twitter account that Odyssey writers love to hate. It makes fun of everything that we are. All of our “Open Letters,” “As Told By’s” and “500 Words On” are all up for ridiculing by the “Odyssey Rejects” Twitter account. And yet I find myself, and many other Odyssey writers, following it. But, why do we follow the infamous account? What is it about this account, that’s sole purpose is to mock us, draws us in? It’s probably the fact that while they do make fun of our countless “Listicles,” they actually have some of the most relatable article topics I’ve seen. From touching on Donald Trump’s gorgeous (and totally natural looking) tan to what it’s like to be taken back to the Stone Age by an iPod nano, Odyssey Rejects have article topics that should not be rejects at all.

1. One of these topics being “What Having $12 in my Bank Account After a Night Out at the Bars Taught Me About the Great Depression”

We’re college kids. We’re broke, we’re irresponsible and a topic like this just hits a little too close to home.

2. Another one is “Why Getting a College Degree is Overrated, as Told by the Guy Who Peaked in High School”

More like, as told by everyone I graduated high school with.

3. Probably the best piece of advice a single college girl will ever get, “Nine Reasons You Should Delete Tinder and Join FarmersOnly.com”

Everyone knows the guys on Tinder aren’t looking for a commitment, but the guys on Farmers Only. However, will probably be more than happy to put a ring on it.

4. One to help anyone improve their popularity at a party: “89 Taylor Swift-Inspired Dance Moves to Break Out at Your Next Party”

If singing (screaming) along to “Blank Space” while doing one of those moves doesn’t reel in the best guy there…you’re probably doing the dance moves correctly.

5. Obviously the most heartfelt Reject out there: “An Open Letter to My Future Food Baby”

I love you more than you will ever know.

6. The secret to life: “76 Reasons Why Passive Aggressively Subtweeting Will Solve Literally All of Your Problems”

If you and your roommates haven’t done this, you obviously aren’t as close as you thought you were.

7. And arguably the most relatable: “8 Steps to Surviving Finals Week, As Told By Britney Spears’s 2007 Mental Breakdown”

Trust me, we know all about stress.

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.
