A Huge Thank You To The Friends Who Make College The Best 4 Years

A Huge Thank You To The Friends Who Make College The Best 4 Years

A day without you feels like a whole month.

The Odyssey

To my college best friend,

Coming to Syracuse University, I am most grateful for people like you. Without you, I would not have the same love for my school.

Of course, I have some of the most genuine friends from my hometown. That bond, however, was created over the span of many, many years. It bewilders me that I have formed the same bond with you at Syracuse in about a year and a half, unlike the numerous years for others.

It's honestly surprising, shocking, and baffling to go back to a time when I did not know you. It was only a year and a half ago, but somehow, you make up most of my life. I have been able to come to college and find people like you who fit me like a puzzle.

Thank you for the craziest nights out, but also the nights where we stay in watching movies and binge eating chips and queso.

Thanks for making me laugh until my stomach aches in the dining hall hacking up dry chicken.

Thanks for singing with me on the top of our lungs driving for hours on end.

Thanks for chatting and gossiping with me until the wee hours of the morning, instead of studying.

Thanks for making goofy videos taste testing the weirdest foods which I look back on and laugh until I cry.

A day without you feels like a whole month. You, my best friend, are my family at school and make every day a little brighter.

So thank you for making my life at Syracuse amazing. You have accepted me and allowed me to grow and develop while away at college. You have seen me at my worst when I am a zombie walking around after an all-nighter, but you have also seen me at my best when I am crazy and silly.

You are the absolute best!


Your college best friend.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

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?
