Poetry On Odyssey: College

College is not all fun and games, let me tell you that right now.

Poetry On Odyssey: College

I arrived at college thinking that it would be like the movies, but boy was I WRONG.

I'm stuck here alone and broke, just my luck,

What can I say? Growing up sucks,

I'm getting fat because all I do is snack,

Don't grow up, it's a trap,

I have to set about seven alarms in the morning, not just one,

I'll let you in on something, growing up isn't fun,

I have all these responsibilities now, things I must do on my own time,

If I could go back to being little with no care in the world, that would be fine,

I'm running low on shampoo, I only have a small glob,

I'm seriously hoping this can of dry shampoo will do the job

I have no quarters, so my laundry basket is overflowing in my closet,

I don't use this textbook anyways, maybe I can hock it,

I stay up so late doing homework that I nearly fall asleep in class,

But I can't get by on exam grades alone, my parents would kick my ass,

I failed a math exam but luckily she curved the grade,

Now I'm only three letter grades away from an A,

I bought a fish so that it would make our dorm feel more "homey,"

A pet was supposed to fill my empty void but this guy is definitely a phony,

Our floor of the dorm is pretty nice, all girls, so there is always perfume in the air,

Just don't use the showers, they're cobwebbed with hair,

I have about eight exams next week and three assignments due at 11:59,

And I still haven't really learned how to manage my time,

I guess all of this is just part of growing up,

So to those who aren't in college yet — good luck!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
