To My Odyssey Family, Thank You For Being Amazing

My creators are one of the biggest reasons I love my position as Editor in Chief.

To My Odyssey Family, Thank You For Being Amazing
Jenna Collins

Dear my amazing Odyssey fam,

This letter is to thank you guys for all the hard work you have put in and for making my experience as your Editor in Chief the best.

A year ago I accepted this position with no idea where it was going to take me. To be completely honest I doubted that I would make it this far. I didn’t think I had the skill to be the editor you guys deserve.

Deciding to take a chance on myself and taking on this position has been one of the best decisions of my life.

Thank you for putting up with me while I learn the ropes.

I know it was an adjustment for me taking on this new role and I’m sure it was an adjustment for you guys too!

Thank you for reading my overly excited weekly emails.

Once I learned how to add gifs to my emails (I’m old don’t make fun of me for not knowing how to do this at first!) I started having fun with my weekly emails and I’m sure when you see it pop up in your inboxes you’re like “oh boy, she’s back at it again with the gifs and the colorful font.” So I appreciate you guys reading my emails even if they annoy you.

Thank you for making me a proud momma.

I know that sounds really weird but every time you guys write a killer article I am the proudest human ever! No one will ever be more proud of you than your real parents but I definitely feel like a proud momma when you guys succeed. There are days when our Muse system is so annoying I want to quit Odyssey entirely and move to another country (okay, that’s dramatic, but Muse is annoying as hell sometimes), but watching you guys grow as writers makes every annoying thing Muse does worth it! You have all poured your hearts and souls into the articles you write. Some of you have written pieces that are so emotionally charged they have brought me to tears. Some of the other articles you guys write have me cracking up. I’m so proud of the wide range of content you guys have produced.

I hope you guys know how proud I am of you and how lucky I consider myself to be your Editor in Chief! I know this letter was super cheesy but you guys truly are one of the biggest reasons I love this position and I’m glad I didn’t turn it down a year ago.

Much love,

Your favorite (it’s okay, you can admit it) EIC

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
