Summer 2016 Playlist

Summer 2016 Playlist

The good thing about coming home is getting to find out which music my family and friends are listening to.


Summer has officially ended for me and with school right around the corner I am reflecting on my summer 2016. It was great. I took a summer class, which I got an A on, and I took a well-deserved trip back home. Although I dealt with a family scare I am glad to say that it is over. All is well in that front. I also got my resume, portfolio and blog up and running which is something that has been on my bucket list for what seems like ages. I have also been reading a lot more and rapidly as well. All in all, I can’t complain about this summer.

The good thing about coming home is getting to find out which music my family and friends are listening to. It’s usually different from what I am listening to at home. When I left New York, Drake’s One Dance was in full force over there. By the time I got here there was a remix on the radio. Which means that particular song is played out. I wouldn’t doubt if it’s already played out in New York as well.

I get songs stuck pretty quickly, I don’t care how old or annoying I get to people. If I like the song you best believe I’ll be singing it at the top of my lungs and posting it all over my social media. Thank god that YouTube gives its users the ability to make playlists because I don’t know what I would do without my music as I am walking around New York.

Here are the songs that I have been listening to since school ended in May 2016. This is the order in my YouTube playlist:

Note: these are not all of them

Can’t Stop the Feeling: Justin Timberlake

Cake By The Ocean: DNCE

Work: Rhianna Ft. Drake

Una Vaina Loca: Fuego

La Tipa Me Mira: La Nueva Escuela

This Is What You Came Here For: Madilyn Bailey Cover

We Don’t Talk Anymore: Charlie Puth ft. Selena Gomez

Into You: Ariana Grande

All In My Head (Flex): Fifth Harmony ft. Fetty Wap

These songs have been playing nonstop while I have been cleaning, when I should be sleeping but I can't, when I should be doing work but I am not. While I've been in and out of the hospital and while I am in the car with my parents.

Yes. There are some Spanish mixed in there but I am Dominican. What do you expect?

What songs do you currently have on repeat?

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.
