Odyssey Template: 10 Things You Only Notice About Your Hometown Or Campus In Quarantine

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is impacting everything in the world right now, including where you go, or more specifically, DON'T GO.

Sure you might be where you grew up, or where you go to school, but being quaratined in that location might make you notice things about it that you never have before.

In this template, 10 or more realizations you've had about the location you're in — after a certain amount of being quarantined there.

How To:

For each number, list what you notice. For some, provide a sentence or two about what specifically you've noticed about it, and why you didn't notice it before. Don't be afraid to add some comedic relief for these!

Then, follow these steps:

  1. COPY the text in between the begin and end template sections below
  2. PASTE it into a new post in Odyssey's CORE
  3. Fill it all in and add photos
  4. Submit under Community: Lifestyle for a chance to be featured on Odyssey's Facebook and Instagram
  5. Don't have an account? CREATE ONE.

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.

Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating.
