Sometimes all you can do is dream.

Poetry On Odyssey: When The One You Want Doesn't Want You

It's over. The beautiful love story that you thought was going to go far came to a startling end too soon.

Your heart is broken. Shattered to smithereens. Blasted apart at ground zero of an atomic blast.

You weren't ready for it to end. He never gave it a chance. He put everything else first. He didn't get to see the best of you yet.

It was only at the beginning. There was so much more to come.

You don't understand why. You weren't given a reason, and you have no closure.

You just know that you don't have him.

And he is what you want.

He is all that you want.

You can't stop the feelings that you have.

It was so easy for him to just leave. He just went on with life and forgot all about you.

Like you never existed.

But you did exist and you are left…

Without him.

How can you be giddy with the excitement of new love one day and be so crushed the next?

How can you just go on and forget?

You mourn what you lost. You mourn what you didn't get to have.

You mourn him.

You can't stop the feelings that you have. You can't lie to yourself. Your heart just knows the truth all too well.

It's one of the worst feelings in the world, wanting someone you can't have.

Knowing he doesn't want you. That he doesn't even miss you. That he doesn't care. That he never did.

And due to circumstances you have to see him every day.




The knife twists like a sadistic horror story. Every day it slowly twists. Every day deeper it cuts, gutting the most delicate parts of you.

Seeing him every day and knowing that he'll never be yours.

It's the worst feeling.

And all you can do is dream.

And wish for him…

… but never have him.

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

Google Images

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.

New millennial jargon seems to arise everyday, one of the newest being “daddy." While people have always said things like “sugar daddy" or “come to daddy" (which sounds a tad creepy to me...okay, a lot creepy), now just referring to an attractive man or one's boyfriend/husband as simply “daddy" has become the norm. *Gag*

Clarity To Confusion

How I lost my certainty of the future.

Clarity To Confusion

Last year, I knew exactly what I would be doing with my life. Not just what major I wanted, although, I did know exactly what I was going to major in during college. I went further, though, and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I aimed to be a book editor and use my French and English majors to go into technical editing after going to grad school. Yet this semester, disenchantment hit. I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life anymore. I still loved the idea of being a book editor. I still loved reading. I just couldn't feel any passion towards the courses I had to take this semester. They were amazing, but they didn't excite me the way courses I would love should. They didn't inspire feelings of amazement at how awesome my major is. It was then I realized maybe my major wasn't for me.

The Procrastination Station At College

We all have checked into "Procrastination Station" more than once..

The Procrastination Station At College
Achieve Center - Wendy Loewen

In high school, being a procrastinator wasn't that big of a deal in my own opinion. But coming from a school that didn't really have strict deadlines on things, meaning you basically got points for turning it in be it exactly on or before the deadline, or 4 weeks later when you realize your grade needs to be raised up. So, when I came to college, I knew it would be different. It hasn't really been hard transitioning into a good student when it comes to out of class work and projects, but it hasn't been that easy either. I will use myself for example. I am enrolled in Introduction to Public Speaking, and it's not that is a hard class, because it isn't, but I just get lost in other things and before I knew it, I had to present a persuasive speech the next day. I also realized this at about 11:15 the night before, and had about half of my outlines done, and my visual aid hadn't been started on. Though I got it done, I promised myself that I would not ever just wait until the last minute with specifically this class, but with any other class also. After that little dilemma, I decided to look for ways that I could get things done in a timely manner. So, here I have listed a few things that I now use in order to get things done before the deadline so that I do not have to rush and worry about it the night before:
