Poetry On Odyssey: My Yellow Wood

If two roads diverged in the woods,

And I take the one less traveled,

Will our paths still meet one day?

Will I be able to see your shining smile and hear your bubbling laughter?

Or will what we have faded into nothing during our travels?

Let it be known that I never wanted to leave you,

I never wanted to go about it this way,

But times may tell if our love has remained constant,

If it has remained true.

I do hope it does.

I hope my travels do not interfere with your intentions,

With your life.

However, I do hope that in your life there is a glimmer of me.

And whether we remain together, or not,

That the image of me stays with you,

So I am not forgotten on that trail.

I do not want to become only a set of footprints on the ground,

Prints that will be washed away by rain and other people coming along the same trail.

Have I done enough to keep you thinking of me?

Have I done enough to keep the memories we created in your heart?

Do not see it as though I'm leaving you.

Though our paths may separate now,

We have no way of knowing what is around the bend.

And I long to see your path cross mine,


And again

And again.

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.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
