Thank You

You have a journey worth sharing too: get out there and have that adventure you deem worth sharing. Thank you all for allowing me to share mine <3

Thank You

I have always loved writing, and this blog for the last three years has allowed me to branch into topics I did not even know I had an interest in until I tried writing about them. It is because of writing for the Odyssey that I felt so confident in sharing my poems and work with others around me, and it is something I will be forever grateful for. From having writers block to sharing ideas, this platform has given me a space to express myself that has been so therapeutic.

I am heading towards a new chapter in my life. My time at Rutgers University is coming to an end, as I now graduate in less than a month (which is still fairly hard to believe, since I still remember the excitement I felt as I was accepted to write for the Odyssey in my first-year here) and so much has truly happened during my time as I have written here. I lived through a pandemic, solidified a career decision, fell in love, got accepted for my dream job, got into graduate school. I have felt many wins within my life, but also some loss, and a lot of in-betweens and unsures along the way. Every decision has brought me to this moment, where I am writing to you.

I have learned that you do not always need to make huge leaps. Sometimes the small, seemingly minuscule decisions and choices we make end up mattering the most. We do not always need to be the loudest person in the room to make ripples of effect, sometimes a page, one sheet of paper, can do the trick.

I cannot even begin to express how humbled I am for you to have read my work, and to believe in where my journey might be headed. You have a journey worth sharing too: get out there and have that adventure you deem worth sharing. Thank you all for allowing me to share mine <3

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
