Why You Should Always Wish Upon Shooting Stars

Dreams can come true, but you have to believe


Some people believe that shooting stars are a myth. They believe that the shooting stars are literally just meteors falling from the sky, and they are, at a scientific standpoint. But then there are those people out there, like myself, who believe that if you wish upon a shooting star, that you wish will come true.

I have proof that this can happen.

About a month to two months ago, I was driving to Kansas City. Something told me to look up at the sky as I was passing over the Missouri River, and when I did, a shooting star made its way across the sky. Of course, I did what any person would do. I made a wish. I wished that the person that I fall in love with will love me for who I am. That I wouldn't have to change anything to make them like me and that they would like me for my personality and not just my body. I wished that this person would be someone who I could do anything with, whether it be corny walks and picnics or nights in watching movies.

Big wish, right? I know what you're thinking, "How the hell did that come true?" Let me explain.

Three years ago, when I moved to a town three hours away from home, not knowing anybody but my sister, I met this guy who became my best friend. Now, I'm not saying that this friendship came easily, because it didn't. If you know me in person, you know that I'm a hard person to get along with. This progressed and we started hanging out more. It wasn't until this summer that we ended up actually telling each other how we really felt and ended up dating.

I never thought I would be able to tell someone that I loved them and actually meant it ever again, especially after everything has happened to me over the course of three years. But here I am, still standing strong, and being happier than I ever thought I could be. God has a plan for all of us, and even though you think He may be out to get you, He isn't. He can only do so much, it's you yourself who has to make the final jump through the ring or be give the final "okay, fine" and open the door up that He has placed right in front of you. If I never did, I wouldn't know what I would be doing.

So please, by all means, wish on shooting stars. Wish on every single shooting star you see, because even though it's classified as a myth, that could be God's way of saying, "I'm listening, speak to me."

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.

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 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.
