Pursuing Your Passions

Having a passion is something that is so important. The things that we are passionate about are what push us and keep us going. So when you find something that you truly care about and enjoy doing, it becomes something that you want and need to nourish and pursue. It's what drives you, and it's important to make sure that you don't let your passion fall through the cracks in your everyday life. Have you ever thought about what it is that you truly care the most about in life? What are the things that drive you and make you the person you are?

Passion is one of those emotions that drive people to the ends of the earth. Everyone dreams of finding what they're passionate about. In fact, some people are lucky enough to mold it into their work and do it everyday. That is, after all, the ultimate goal in life. We all hope that one day we find ourselves in a career that we are passionate about, a career that utilizes the skills and talents that we nurture the most.

All of these reasons and more are why you should always make time for what you're passionate about, and if you have yet to find that, devote time to figure out what it is that drives you each and everyday. For some people, it's working with and helping others, while other people are driven by more artistic ideals. The list is really endless, because it's catered to each person. Either way, it's important to take your passion and work it into your everyday life, whether it's work or leisure.

One of my passions is writing. Even writing papers for high school and college was something I enjoyed. I preferred writing a paper to taking test any day. So when I graduated college, I started thinking about ways that I could still write. Then I happened upon The Odyssey. I've been writing for it for almost a year, and I still enjoy doing it. While there's still other ways that I could pursue writing, such as writing in a journal, I've found the Odyssey to be an outlet that suits me well. It also gives me the opportunity to share my writing with other easily because it can be shared to my Facebook, giving my friends and family instant access to my pieces each week. This is how I pursued one of my passions, because it's something that brings me joy and lets me forget about what happened during my day.

So if you have something that you're passionate about, don't let it fall to the wayside. Do whatever you can to make sure that you feed and nourish it. Look for ways that your talents can be used to their best potential. Volunteer, take a class in it, or find other people who share the same interests as you and pursue these things together. Because at the end of the day when you get home from a long day at work or school, it's really only your passions that you have to help you escape from it all.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

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

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.

Disney

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.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

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.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

7572

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.
