The Positives Of 2016

2016 has had some rough patches, but has also brought many great patches.

The Positives Of 2016

2017 is here? Wait, what? Not only is it crazy that 2016 is over, but everyone is only focusing on the negative things that have happened throughout the year. Sure, the year had some rough patches, very rough, but doesn't every year? I mean, at the end of every year, everyone says the same old thing. "New year, new me!" "I'm leaving all of this in last year!" You get the point. So instead of talking about every single negative things that have happened in 2016, I wanted to talk about positive things. 2016 has brought great things to me and I'm sure others. Here are some highlights of 2016.

1. Getting Accepted Into College

This was a major highlight in my year. I worked so hard to get into my dream school and this was just a dream come true! (Bonus: now I get to write for their Odyssey!)

2. Senior Night

Soccer was one of the biggest parts of my life throughout school, so senior night was a huge deal to me. It may not have been my last game, but it was still a huge one, especially coming back from an injury.

3. Graduation

Graduation was one of the biggest moments of 2016. It marked the end of one chapter and the start of a new one (basic, I know).

4. Visiting NYC For The First Time

Visiting NYC was easily one of the coolest trips I have ever been on. It was such a different place going from a tiny little town to a massive city. Seeing all of the major tour sights was unbelievable.

5. Move In Day

Move-in day was both very chaotic and very exciting. It took a long time for it to even feel real that I was moving into college.

6. Meeting New People

College has brought me the best little bundle of friends. They all contributed to making my first semester the best.

7. Meeting Waka Flocka

This was just really freaking cool and pretty lucky. I also pet his dog.

8. Finishing My First Semester

Finishing my first semester was a breath of fresh air and crazy to believe. The semester flew by and I'm proud to say I survived the first semester with good grades.

Although this was a pretty personal article, I just wanted to reflect back on the highlights of 2016 that overpower lowlights. 2016 has brought so many great things that the bad can't even compare. I hope everyone has a great New Year and focuses on the good!

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Every person, every couple celebrates Valentines in different ways, but there are a few things to keep in mind.

How I Celebrate Valentine's Day

Ah, Valentines Day, a day of excitement for some and heart break for many. There are three kinds of people on Valentine's Day: the ones who make it a big deal, a little deal, and those who are single, but Valentine's Day can be fun for anyone if you have the right spirit in mind.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)

Black History Month? Try Black History Year

What does Black History Month mean to you?


African Americans have done so much and will forever be remembered for their accomplishments. In my opinion, there is no such thing as Black History Month. All year, we should celebrate the amazing poetry, music, inventions, and accomplishments that has surfaced over the last 100 years. Let's take a look...
