Odyssey Template: Review A Product You Love

There are few things less satisfying than giving someone a product recommendation only to find out they actually took the recommendation and love it just as much as you told them they would. There exists a great sense of gratification in knowing someone valued your opinion enough to go out and make a purchase based on it.

We all have those products we love so much, we'll recommend them to anyone who will listen — whether it be the acne-clearing face mask you swear by, the comfy pair of leggings you've worn ten days in a row, your go-to cast iron pan, or the newly-released Halo Top flavor you buy Whole Foods out of every chance you get.

Now's your chance to shout your love for your favorite products from the (Odyssey) rooftops.

How To:

Here's where you come in! We want you and/or your friend(s) to create your very own product review on Odyssey using the template we created below. Remember: don't take it too seriously! Have fun with it and put your personality into it.

Then, follow these steps:

  1. COPY the text in between the begin and end template sections below
  2. PASTE it into a new post in Odyssey's CORE

  4. Submit under Community: Lifestyle for a chance to be featured on Odyssey's Facebook and Instagram.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

Tumblr

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
