To My College Best Friends

To My College Best Friends

Because doing homework until midnight & living in a tiny room would not have been fun without you.

It is crazy to think that eight months have quickly come and gone. Before coming to school, I was nervous. Nervous I would miss home, nervous I wouldn’t be able to keep up with my new college workload, and most of all nervous I would not make friends. However, I could not have been more wrong. The friends I have made have quickly made school feel like home, and for that I owe them all a huge thank you.

Thank you for being there for the majority of my college “firsts”. I could not have made it through my first college party, sorority rushing or first finals week without you all by my side. No matter the problem, big or small, I always knew I could count on you if I needed a shoulder to cry on or snacks to munch on.

Thank you for never making me eat alone in the dining hall and for responding to all my ridiculous texts in the groupchat. Through the countless links, videos and pictures, you guys have never failed to respond with a witty comment that can make me laugh on even my worst of days. You were the ones I went too if I needed to borrow clothes for another formal or wanted someone to vent to at 2am.

Thank you for the car rides where we would blast music and sing at the top of our lungs. You are always up to try crazy ideas someone has and that’s led to some of our best memories. Thank you for pretending to like country music, encouraging me to eat that piece of chocolate cake and always giving me a hard time for how I say the word “bagel” (even though I say it the way it is supposed to be said).

Above all, I am thankful for the times you have made me laugh until I cried or the nights where we would sit around talking about anything and everything. I did not come to college expecting to make friends like you all but I am so lucky that I did.

Here is to three more years full of country music, dinner dates, and all of the memories to come. Hopefully you all will learn how to properly say the word “bagel” in that time.

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.
