11 Actually Useful Skills You Learn Creating On Odyssey
Haley Holden

Now that my time is coming to an end, I've been reflecting on some of the things I've learned from being a contributor to the Odyssey during my time at school. It's a great opportunity to get experience while you're still in school and earn a few bucks if you can crack the code like some creators.

1. How to make a bomb listicle

You can list almost anything in a clever way after a little bit of experience.

2. You can properly attribute any photo

Even the ones that you take yourself.

3. You can meet a weekly deadline

Without anyone breathing down your neck about it, you manage just fine.

4. You can make any need for an extension sound professional

You're hungover, but you can't say that. So let's talk about how you are 'currently unable' to write.

5. You can brainstorm like nobody's business

Your own articles, helping other people, rewriting, and all.

6. You can flip a headline around

It's always nice to see one of your team members being in the top shared article of the week.

11. You have random tid bits of expertise

beer on the beach

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages.

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.

You cannot beat the beach. Believe it or not (which many people may not), New England has a long and beautiful coastline.

It’s not a New England summer without that 4 p.m. text from someone, “Who wants to meet at the Wall tonight?” Nighttime is for Tripoli’s Pizza, the sound of waves, and wishes on shooting stars. Wednesday nights are especially important, as those are the nights that Hampton Beach sets off the weekly firework display.
