Congratulations honey, you played yourself. But let's back up a little bit, it was late 2016 when we met and you were the complete opposite of what I was looking for, I just was not going to be with a guy like you. You thought you were the best thing since sliced bread because you played sports and were practically a genius, sounds perfect on paper except for the fact you were an absolute pushy little shit.

You knew how to get what you wanted, always. I thought I was getting to know you by February of the next year, but I was wrong, you cried in front of me once and for me that was the ultimate breakthrough, or so I thought. Listen, I understand loss, you know I do so I'm not going to sit here and downplay that, but it doesn't give you the excuse to play with peoples emotions. I became wrapped around your finger by the time spring came around and you knew it. I couldn't believe a hot shot like you would pay any attention to a girl like me, nonetheless constant attention so I fell for it. You said jump and I did, anything you wanted from me you had it and I regret being that available to you all that time.

You played me like I was a pawn in your game and then when you left for summer break you left me hanging. You promised you'd come to see me for my birthday, that you wouldn't be so distant, but you were, too busy for a girl like me. Three months went by, the hardest summer of my life and you weren't there. I cried over you so much, sobbing in the arms of a boy who fell for me, but I was too stuck on you and blinded by your perfection. I was leaving for college that August and of course you knew that but you had to sink your teeth into my skin one more time, I thought it would be the last.

Once I left for school you again distanced yourself until it was time for you to come up north to play a school in the town over from me, conveniently the school I attended let your team practice on our field, I fawned over the idea of seeing you. I told a friend all about you, you guys even briefly met when you came to my dorm. You and I had one last go and then I had a revelation, enough is enough. I am not about to give my body to this cruel man anymore no matter how perfect he seems, I broke contact and I thought that was that but I was so wrong. I did see you after that and I regret every second of it because you don't and you never did deserve a second of my time. You played the girl who would have done anything for you and led her into the arms of someone fantastic, someone she plans to marry and have a family with someday so hey thanks I guess.

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.
