Poetry on Odyssey: Buzz, Buzz

What if we all cared as much about one another as the bees do their flowers?

You followed the tiny bee
It moved from flower to flower
Never stopped its pollination
It worked and worked for hours


Makes a buzz, buzz
As it flew on by
Seemed most interested
In the sweetest nectar
It wandered past
The bushes and the trees
It sought the ripest flowers only


Fruitful endeavors it did want
But not the kind we favor
The essence to make its honey
Goal to serve only one


This worker bee lives
Only for the Queen
Until the moment
It comes to close
Your hand reaches out
Smacks it from the air
A bee in the face is
No laughing matter

The bee does turn swiftly
His ass is in the air
He points his tiny derriere
And stings you through
Your skin turns red
You scream and shout
Tiny bee falls to the ground

You'll survive, most likely
Even if you've allergies
But this little bee
Who loved to work
Will lose it all
Defending that which
Matters most

His life diminishes
You do not care
No more
So it goes

I mean, I am taking rigorous classes which allow me to devote a lot of my time towards them, but still...it is only two classes. By the time I get done, I have a whole half of the day full of nothing. I end up just sitting on my phone for most of the day instead of doing something practical.

So here I have compiled a list of how to keep yourself from not going crazy!

August rolls around, and school starts again...

Week One of Being A Freshie Again
Dear Freshman Me,

Most of us officially embarked on the journey of college. Yay! more school, how great is that? (Sarcasm people) This past week has been my first week at this amazing university. I've been finding all of the neat little short cuts that save me 10 minutes to get to a class, or just allow me to de-stress a little when I feel over whelmed.

The Life Of Leaving Home

Home away from homelessness.

Chris Barbalis

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.
