Poetry on Odyssey: War in Ukraine

In Ukraine's heart, a tempest brews,

A land once peaceful, now abused.

Amidst the fields and rivers wide,

A crimson stain, where hope had died.


From distant lands, the shadows came,

With fervent hearts and tongues of flame.

Their eyes alight with bitter scorn,

They sowed the seeds of war's cruel morn.


The echoes of a thousand cries,

Through shattered homes and darkened skies,

Resound in souls who bear the weight,

Of loss and grief, of love abate.


In Donetsk's streets, the children weep,

While mothers, broken, vigil keep.

The sound of gunfire, ever near,

A haunting song, a constant fear.


Luhansk, a city torn apart,

Where brothers fought with heavy heart.

In brotherhood, they once were bound,

Now foes in trenches, homeward bound.


Yet in this tale of woe and strife,

A glimmer shines to claim our life.

The strength of love, a beacon bright,

Guiding hearts through darkest night.


Amidst the rubble and debris,

Unyielding hope fights to be free.

In unity, they rise above,

A testament to human love.


A plea for peace, like flowers bloom,

Amidst the smoke, a sweet perfume.

Let not this land be torn apart,

But mend the wounds, embrace each heart.


For in the end, we must recall,

That love can conquer, heal all.

Let peace descend on Ukraine's soil,

And mend the hearts that war did spoil.


In forty-six lines, we learn this truth,

In war, there's neither victor nor ruth.

Only in unity, we shall thrive,

Together, let compassion revive.

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.

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.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
