Procrastination Has Gotten Me

Procrastination Has Gotten Me

Three things that should have been done, none are accomplished

Here at the University of Central Missouri, the dreaded finals weeks is upon us and many of us are not ready (I am included). This is when I am sad to say that procrastination becomes my best friend for a month. I have had this final to work on for a month; research out the butt that needs to be done, and I'm just now only on page two of it. Oops.

But my procrastination isn't on just my school work that needs to be done before the semester is done. My procrastination extends into my inner circle of my friends, my family, and the things I need to do at home (i.e. laundry).

I haven't even had the chance to go Christmas shopping or my family or friends yet, all because I want to stay inside where it's warm and I can't get sick..or so I thought. I woke up with the most discusting migraine and scratchy throat proving that I can get sick from staying inside. So not only am I procrastinating literally everything around me, now I have to get up and go to the supermarket to get cold medicine, when it's very, very cold outside.

So not okay.

I write this article not to complain, but to ask you questions as sort of a self-help. What would you get a 10-year-old and a 5-year-old? My nephews are the most important little kids in the world to me and I can't even figure out what to get them. They're into Pokemon, Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, and SpongeBob. As a college student, I would love to try and not break the bank but with what they like I don't think that's something that avoidable.

Second question, why do people procrastinate? I myself don't even know. I know that I do better on assignments if I literally wait until the very last minute, but is it like that for everyone?

Anyway, to those having trouble looking for presents for thos you love, good luck. For those who are like me and getting ready to enter the dreaded "Final's Week", may God be with you and good luck. And for those who are sick, also like me, with a wicked cold that you can't escape, let's go to the doctor together and get some better medicine than OTC medicine, okay?

Bless, Merry Christmas, and let's hope for some snow soon.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Now that college is around the corner for most if not all young adults, students once shook by a pandemic now have to shift their focus on achieving their career goals. As if we thought we had it together already! As an NYC girl, I have always seen myself as a hustler, hungry to advance my career in journalism by having one skill: working hard.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?

Disney Plus

Millions of musical-lovers around the world rejoiced when "Hamilton," the hip-hop-mixtape-turned-musical harder to get in to than Studio 54, came to Disney Plus.

For those who had the luxury of being able to watch it in person and rewatch it with us mere mortals on our screens, the experience was almost as gripping as sitting feet from Lin-Manuel Miranda himself. From the stunning sets, graceful choreography, witty dialogue, and hauntingly beautiful singing, the experience was one even my musical-averse family felt moved by.

Keto Is All Fun And Games Until You're Undernourished And Almost Pass Out

Keto is just another extension of diet culture that boasts rapid weight loss, but at a steep price.

There has been a Keto diet craze going around in the past couple of years, with many of its followers claiming significant weight loss. With any new, trendy diet claiming miraculous weight-loss, one starts to wonder what exactly is happening behind the curtain. The keto, or ketogenic, diet is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that claims to help the body shift its fuel source from carbs to fat. In the medical community it has been prescribed to patients with uncontrolled epilepsy to reduce the frequency of seizures, but other than that there is little conclusive evidence to other potential benefits.
