5 Reasons To Write For Odyssey

Have you thought about writing for an Odyssey Community? I suggest that you go for it!

It has been one of my favorite things that I have been involved in on campus. My community, and I'm sure in others, there is so much diversity within the team. If that isn't enough for you, here are 5 more reasons why you should consider joining your local team.

1. You're building a resume

Odyssey looks great on a resume, especially if you're in school for a major that has to do with writing.

2. You get to meet people you might not have any other way.

For my community, and I would think others, we have a GroupMe that helps us to connect with each other and get ideas for articles. We also try to plan activities to do together.

3. Job experience

Writing for Odyssey, you have to deal with a deadline set by the editors. Working with deadlines is something that any job has to deal with.

4. You're building a portfolio

If you're a journalism major this especially applies to you. My school didn't offer many activities to help me build a portfolio for myself, but the Odyssey did just that. Plus, it's all in one place.

5. You get to be creative

The main reason that I joined Odyssey was to get job experience. Before college, I hadn't been able to write what I wanted and to see where I wanted my writing abilities to go. Odyssey has allowed me to branch out and try different types of writings as well as talk about things I found important, not just what I was told to write about. I have enjoyed writing for the website as well as meeting new people that it has introduced me to.

So If you are interested, they are always looking for new writers! Here is a link to apply:

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.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
