Dear Family, Friends, Santa, or whoever is reading this right now,

If you’re still struggling to decide what to get us for the holidays this year, look no further. I took the liberty of generating a list of things us Odyssey Online writers REALLY want during those seven or eight nights or under our Christmas trees!

And if you can’t get us these things, no worries! We’ll accept cash, checks, or gift cards instead!

1. A Waterproof Notebook

An absolutely essential tool for when inspiration strikes in the shower! After all, we do come up with our best ideas for articles while bathing, and we’d hate to lose them!

2. "The Associated Press Stylebook 2017" to use when editing our own articles

Even though this would be more of a gift for our editors than it would be for us...

3. More views on our articles

Especially from potential employers who want to hire us to write for them!

4. A premium subscription for “Grammarly” (or another grammar-checking tool)

Because many of us still forgot, where to put those commas or which verb tense to use from time to time...

5. The cure for “Writer’s Block”

Just as long as it's not in the form of a vaccine! (NOPE NOPE NOPE)

6. For our family and friends to actually read our articles

I’m calling out the loved ones who "like" our articles on social media without actually reading them.

YES, we know who you are and YES, sometimes we can tell...

7. More time to write!

This year, consider giving the gift of EXTRA TIME.

What else would you give as a gift to the writer in your life this holiday season? Tweet me your ideas @missjulia1207!

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

Lorelai Gilmore and I are kindred spirits.

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee!

When I was in high school, I was the occasional coffee drinker, if you could call it that. I would drink Starbucks frappuccinos and iced mocha drinks, which were more like snacks than coffee, BUT they had coffee in them, so I said I drank coffee. I progressed from my love of “snack drinks" to a more general appreciation of coffee, and would have a cup of coffee once a week or so. My “cup of coffee" would consist of a little coffee and a lot of cream and sugar, but it was coffee nonetheless. Then I started college.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Well, this school year has come to a close, and it's off to having fun in the sun. For college students, summer offers a few different options: get an internship somewhere AMAZING like NYC, India or somewhere else awesome, travel, stay in your college town or go home for the summer. Whatever the reasoning, many people do end up going home and living with their parents during the summer. Many things are different when you go home for the summer. After almost a whole year being an adult, it's time to return to your parent's home and follow rules that you threw to the wind the second you stepped on campus last fall. And you get to see all your old friends, the ones who came home anyway. You'll also see people you haven't talked to since you graduated that you were really okay with never seeing again. If you are going home for the summer, here are some things that will happen to you.
