I wish I could say I had some method to my madness.

Thoughts I Have Trying to Write an Odyssey Article
Professional Grant Writers

Writing these articles isn’t exactly a piece of cake. Having to come up with one every week or two is a bit challenging unless you have a concrete set of plans for what you want to write about. Even when you do have a plan to write about something, it can be hard to transfer your thoughts onto the screen in a meaningful way.

Here are some thoughts I’ve had while trying to come up with Odyssey articles this past semester.

1. So should I write that article that I know no one will read about music or an album I really like?

2. I could write about cats. But what would be the point other than for me to stick cat pictures into an article and call it a day?

3. I could write one of those cool gif-filled articles. Those are really popular. But do those come off as just me being lazy?

4. But copying gifs is so annoying oh my goooooddddd.

5. What if I wrote an article about Lindsay Lohan or something? Or the conspiracy theory about how Avril Lavigne is actually dead and was replaced by a clone?

6. Hahaha, I have six other actual academic assignments to do and I’m doing this. Hahahaha!

7. Nope, can’t do that article, I’d rather not subtweet people because they might read this one day.

8. I’m too nervous to write a serious article but I also want to be able to use this platform to express my serious opinions about serious topics but I’m also nervous and a big ball of anxiety so let’s just stick with gifs from Friends!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season
