Best Places to Go in Seattle

Seattle is quite the place to go visit, with many attractions.

Best Places to Go in Seattle

Last week, I went on a trip to Seattle. It's a really interesting city with lots of attractions to visit. Here are the ones that I found the most exciting:

1. Pike Place Market

This is an awesome place to go shopping or to just browse. There are so many different sorts of shops here, and the best part is, the food places have samples. I sampled some delicious jam--Seattle has access to some great produce, turns out. Also, there's a fish shop where the workers throw fish around. Pretty exciting.

2. The Space Needle

I didn't actually go up it, but just looking at this landmark is pretty cool. But yeah, it's an elevator-like structure you can go up to see a beautiful view of the city.

3. Ivar's Acres of Clams

I have a confession to make: I had never had clam chowder until I went here. Yeah, that's pretty weird for someone who lives on the west coast. Anyway, the clam chowder here is delectable. Also, if you sit outside, you can feed some seagulls. Really, they even encourage it with signs. It does shut them up, which is nice.

4. Mystery Soda Machine

This is one a lot of people don't know about. On 918 E John Street, there's a soda vending machine. Its buttons all say "Mystery". Apparently, no one has ever seen who stocks it with sodas. Anyway, when I went with a couple of friends, we got cream soda, sprite, and ginger ale. Who knows what else it has? It's a mystery.

5. The first Starbucks!

Since Starbucks is kind of a huge deal, like the biggest coffee shop chain ever, it's cool to see where it all began: in Seattle. The vintage logo and sign is cool to see, as well as the old-fashioned decor within. I didn't actually enter the first Starbucks since there was a line out the door when I went, but it was interesting to see it from the outside.

Hope you get the chance to go to Seattle. It's quite the city with its own quirky, unique culture. And if you go, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

College Boy Charm is Real and it's Very Sexy

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
