Poetry On Odyssey: Three types of love

When we fall for someone it usually turns into one of these three types of love

Poetry On Odyssey: Three types of love

The first love is often the shortest

It happens suddenly and without warning

Like a firework exploding in the night sky

It is beautiful and wondrous

I cannot imagine life without it

But it ends

Usually for some silly reason

Or because neither I nor you were mature yet

Looking back upon it I try to pretend it was not love

But it was all the love I knew at the time

The second type of love is most hurtful

This is the love you imagine would last forever

You learn from this love and it makes you stronger

Like all things that become strong

To become stronger you must be broken first

This love will betray you, lie to you, damage you

But in the end, you grow

You find what you truly want from another person

You find your limits

However, this love closes you

You became cautious with your heart

The third type of love is the most unexpected

We were comfortable in our loneliness

In the bleak emptiness, we found ourselves

Love crept back into our lives

Like the silent dawn, its light covered us completely

We could see everything now

Despite every wall, we built

Despite every emotion hidden away in the darkness

Everything came to the light created by love

We no longer hide anything from each other

We can finally see the beauty in our flaws

Because we grow together in every moment

In all of the vastness of the universe

We found each other

True love is something developed

It is not stumbled upon but earned

It is the greatest blessing because of the journey to it

It does not need to change or adapt

It is simply enough

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
