To The One That Has Known Me The Longest

To The One That Has Known Me The Longest

We've gone through many life stages together but we are still going strong

Katy Revell

There are some people who would argue that you don't really stay close to anyone that you were friends with back in grade school. However, I beg to differ. Sometimes you just so happen, by the grace of God, find one that sticks around through it all no matter what. Once you find that person, latch onto them and never let them go because they are the ones who will always have your back. So this is an open letter to the girl who I have known the longest.

We have known each other for 10 years now. A whole decade. We went through those awkward and somewhat horrible life experiences with one another. We grew up together and still loved each other through the horrible fashion choices of the early 2000s. Those days in middle school and early parts of high school when we were learning how to do our makeup and we thought that our eyeliner wasn't too thick, but in reality, it was.

I will never forget when we would sit across from one another and flare our nostrils in a code to help us with answers on hard tests (just kidding mom we didn't do that). Or the late night jam sessions in your car after football games on our way to Waffle House. Everyone in school basically knew that wherever you were, I wasn't too far behind. We were inseparable, each other's ride or die. We tackled through the silly drama, the craziness from the immature boys who did stupid stuff in class because they thought it would impress us, and all the hectic-ness that high school threw our way.

Now here we are, juniors in college and still going on late night food runs and jam sessions all while trying to not have a mental breakdown every day because who knew how hard college actually is. I am pretty sure there are those out there in good ole States who think we are "together" which makes us laugh and so we just go with it.

You are the one who I share the fondest memories with. The one that no matter what life decisions I decide to do, whether they are good or bad, you still love me and will be there for me at the end of the day. You listen to my rants over and over no matter how many times I've talked about the same topic. Even though we went through periods where we didn't talk much or see one another, God knows that you are meant to be in my life because we always tend to find our way back to one another.

As we prep for our last year(s) of college, and how we vow that we will make 2018 the year of Mack and Kat, I pray each and every day that we remain humble and kind. That we push one another to be the best version of ourselves but remain strong in our faith and to become God-fearing women and that we will take grasp of every opportunity, no matter what it might be.

I pray and vow as your friend to encourage you, uplift you, and love you no matter what and I will remind you of your worth and how amazing you are and that one day God will bring someone who will honestly have to treat you better than me. I will be your support system and to help ease the stress of life when it might become too much at times. We both have had our trials and tribulations with boys, health, school and everything in between. I will always be here by your side.

You have changed my life for the better. And I will always be grateful for your friendship. "A friend loves at all times." Proverbs 17:17

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.
