To My Future Little, You'll Never Be Alone

To My Future Little, You'll Never Be Alone

I hope you know that I cannot wait to meet you!


Hi Little!

You're absolutely incredible and I love you! I have so much I want you to know before you join the family.

First things first, I have been praying for you for a long time. I am writing this in November and I won't even get to meet you until next August. Since I met my big two months ago, I've been praying for your heart.

I pray that whatever is going on in your world that you feel loved and cared for. I pray that you aren't drowning in school work, have been getting enough sleep, and have been told how wonderful you are today. I pray the world is being kind to you.

I pray that I am growing into the person you will need me to be. I pray we will be able to talk about hard things. I pray that Christ will use me to positively impact your life and shape your experience in Alpha Delta Pi. I pray that when you go through Recruitment, you are able to see how wanted you are by our chapter.

In our Diamond Family, you will get to meet some of the coolest and funniest women ever. (and me!) My Big, your G, is such a treasure to the chapter and will love you almost as much as I do. She will make you sore from laughing and will champion you every step of the day. My G, your GG, has the sweetest smile and is always willing to listen, as long as you don't call her grandma.

We're a huge mix of personalities, majors, hometowns, passions, and opinions and we've saved a space just for you. We do share a name though and if your name ends up being Kate too, it may get a bit confusing. Oh - and I may or may not definitely l have a box under my bed that your G gifted me that's quickly being refilled for you!

I am stoked for you to see the reveal theme I'll be making for you. As much as I love me a good bid day, next year's big little can't come fast enough for me. I'm pumped to take you out for dinners when you wanna get off campus.

You'll always have someone who's down to make pillow forts and jam out to a Jonas Brother's album. I promise that I will be obnoxiously excited about every little single little thing. You will never be left to walk through college, or life, alone as long as I'm around.

I hope that when you step into the house, it feels like your home. I hope you have a blast on Bid Day and get to bond with AC'18! I hope you call me late at night when life is overwhelming or everything feels like it's piling up on you. I hope you send me all of the silly texts, gifs, and snaps your heart desires. I hope you know that I will always want to hear from you and that you're never a bother. I hope you know that I cannot wait to meet you!

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
