Poetry on Odyssey: Your Love

It's hard to love someone who hates you. They say they love you and that they'd give you the world, but how can they do that when their hands are wrapped around your throat?

One thing that I was told while growing up, is to treat others how you would treat yourself. But when that love is mistreated, and you're still giving out the same type of love from the very beginning, I believe that it would tie to go to leave that relationship. This poem is about the obsession and blindness that can come with love and how you can also become trapped by its aura.


I ain't eva had a love like this.
You make me sick.

It's stupid.

No other lover will ever be as good as this.

That flavor's bright and new.
Oh baby, you got me twisted in a bind.
I don't think I can get enough of you.
You're slicker than an eel with my hands wrapped around you,
A boa as you wrap and constrict yourself around me.

Your hand brings me closer to you.
Your arms to pin me to your chest.
I couldn't breathe,
And my body stiffened with those electrifying touches.
My once doting eyes of flatter,
Widen in terror.

Your body lets loose.
It springs away from me,
My body freshly burned.

You return once more.

An answer to my yearning,
Cool to the touch of your hand.
A balm against my singed flesh,
And we spoon once again.

First time, I couldn't remember a better place.
Second time, I thought you disposable.
Third time, I realized I loved you.
Now I don't think I'll ever get rid of you.

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.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
