A Thank You Letter to My College Friends

Because I wouldn’t have made it through this semester without you.

To my friends I’ve made in college,

As we head our separate ways for the summer, I just wanted to thank you for making this my favorite semester of college yet (even though it was also probably the most challenging). I would not have made it through this year without you all by my side. This includes my roommates, teammates, classmates, and others who have been there with me through some of the best and hardest times of my life.

To my roommates (and honorary roommates), thank you for listening to me complain about organic chemistry practically every single day. Thank you for always being up for a trip to Dunkin to satisfy my coffee and donut cravings. Thank you for loving Olive Garden breadsticks as much as I do. Thank you for doing my hair and makeup, and for letting me borrow your clothes when I can’t find anything in my closet. Thank you for late night movies (and for sharing your popcorn with me). Most of all, thank you for the countless laughs and memories we’ve made.

To my teammates, thank you for going through those dreaded workouts, rainy runs, and weight room sessions with me. Thank you for understanding the struggle of going up the Mercy Hall stairs the day after a track workout. Thank you for always being willing to share food with me. Thank you for supporting me after a disappointing race. Thank you for basically being my family away from home.

This semester was definitely a tough one, but you know what’s also tough? Leaving you all for three whole months after spending practically every day together for almost nine months. Thanks for being the best friends I could ask for in college. Please keep the group chats and snap streaks alive this summer. See you (hopefully sooner than you think).

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

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?
