Poetry on Odyssey: Love At First Sight

Love at First Sight

Love is never an instantaneous feeling.

Love at first sight is a false sense of security,

A false sense of hope, reality,

An idea that causes people to seemingly

Fall in Love.

But falling in love is not as simple as looking into one's eyes for the first time,

Seeing the immediate twinkle, the rich depth of their eyes, the way that they seem to just


One seems to melt, feeling as if their new lover's eyes tell the story they've always thought,

They fill in the gaps, the holes they always knew were missing,

They hold the key to the glory, the richness, the enjoyment of love and commitment!

But that is because they show one's own reflection in them,

One does not see the other in their eyes, rather, themselves.

Most believe that the first glance is the most important,

It shares a story,

A story words often times refuse to tell.

But does that not mean there is darkness hiding in the lightness in their eyes?

Love at first sight is not truly love,

It is simply the idea of love,

The fact that someone seems to recognize what one has wanted all along,

When in truth,

It is anything but.

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.
