Thoughts I Have Trying to Write an Odyssey Article

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

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!

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. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

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. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
