To The Single Girls, I Can Only Hope

To The Single Girls, I Can Only Hope

Don't spend it being miserable because guys are stupid.


I know that you have probably gone through multiple heartbreaks and still haven't found the one. Trust me, I know that it is a struggle trying to find someone that treats you right.

What I am here to tell is that everything will work out for you.

I understand that at this point you are thinking about giving up because it just seems like it is not worth it anymore. I get it but I want you to listen when I tell you that it is.

I hate the male population just as much as you I am sure of it but what I’m told is that you know when you found the one.

With that being said, I say you stop stressing over trying to get into a relationship and just enjoy life. Go out with your friends and do whatever without having to worry about anything. I feel that girls our age think that we only have a certain time frame to find somebody and then once we hit a certain age it is like well looks like I’m single forever. That is not at all how that works.

The best things come to those who wait and you most definitely won't see them coming.

I understand that it is something that everyone our age is starting to want move out, find the one, and start a family. But let me ask you this: Would you rather rush through all of that and have it all come tumbling down on you? Or, would you rather take your time and find the one and enjoy the rest of your life with them? I think the answer to that question is very obvious.

With that being said, being single isn't really all that bad.

You have to take the time to really know and love yourself before it will ever work with anyone else. Being single is the time to figure all of that out. The time for you to figure out what your goals in life are. The time you, yourself, decide what you want your future to look like. I know that some of those questions are for you to answer with whoever you decide to spend your life with but there are some things you need to know yourself. You want to have a career that you enjoy and no one should get in the way of you being what you want to be.

You want to be a teacher, photographer, engineer, doctor... You name it, then go for it.

Don’t let anyone influence you making this decision. If doing want you want to do means lots of college, then do it. The goal, here, is to know what you want before you try going to make it work with anyone else.

So, to the single girl that thinks she will be single forever, I need you to do me a favor. I want you to take a couple steps back and enjoy this time in your life that you will never get back.

Don't spend it being miserable because guys are stupid. Just take your time and don't try to rush anything. Everyone finds the one at different times in their lives. So, no worries, your time will come and I know that it will be everything you ever wanted.

To all of the single girls out there, I can only hope that you take a bit of advice and be patient - your time is coming and the one for you is out there.

The worlds of beauty and fashion often collide, whether for good or bad. In both, underrepresentation has always been, and remains to be, a major unresolved issue. After the recent killing of George Floyd, many people are rightfully enraged, compounded by the fact his death in police custody wasn't an isolated incident.

Police brutality against Black people is not new, and isn't going away till we start dedicating resources to fighting it. Many of us, as individuals, have only begun in the last week scratching the surface of what it means to educate ourselves on race, historical race relations, and how to be an ally to the Black community.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Connect While Disconnecting From Social Media

Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

I don't know if you've heard, but there's a lot going on right now, particularly in relation to George Floyd's death, Black Lives Matter, and public protest of racial injustice in the United States. While we can all agree that this deserves conversations, change, and actionable good, social media arguments with Great Aunt Linda are not where social change begins and ends. Spending too much time scrolling through your phone has never been healthy, but now it's even more addicting — what does that one person from my hometown say about this? How can I further education within discussions? Am I posting enough?

The current state of the world has created the perfect storm for change in America. But with change there is always risk. Although protests have sprung up all across America, COVID-19 is still a very real risk. Luckily, you can help bring about change from the comfort of your own home. And no, I don't mean just by posting a black square on social media.

True Self-Care Is HARD, That Face Mask Isn't Actually Going To Solve Your Problems

There's a line between self-care and self-destruction.

Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock for the past few years has seen something somewhere about self-care whether it was on Facebook, Twitter, or their Instagram feed. Oftentimes it's pictures of celebrities or influencers sipping green smoothies or slathering on mud masks with #selfcare. It's posts like these that made me realize that "self-care" has become the ultimate buzz word, soaring in popularity but in the process, it's lost most of its original meaning. It's time to set the record straight and reclaim the term.

Although self-care has been around for quite some time, within the past few years it's been misconstrued and commodified as our capitalist society tends to do with things it thinks can be profited off. Self-care is now being peddled as something that can be bought and sold on the shelf at Target rather than something that takes real work to achieve. This fake self-care movement is not only enabling people to over-indulge themselves, but it has created a crutch for people to avoid the responsibility of taking true care of themselves. Instead of doing the work that needs to be done, many people fall into the trap of rewarding themselves for doing nothing at all — this can quickly become an unhealthy coping mechanism, especially with corporations cheering us on (to buy their next product). Long, hard day at work? Just grab your third iced coffee of the day! Fight with your SO? Buy that 50-dollar face mask, it'll make you feel better! This is how self-care becomes self-sabotage and self-destructive.

10 Home Items You Need For Stress Relief, On The Days You 'Literally Cannot'

Fill your home with peaceful, calming coping mechanisms.

I'd like to think that 2020 is teaching us a lot. Or will teach us a lot. Or will be a story we tell at parties one day. Ultimately, this year has been — and is probably going to continue to be — a bit of a mess.

At the beginning of the year, Australia was on fire and we mourned the death of Kobe Bryant. Then, coronavirus (COVID-19) took our spring and shut us in our homes, inciting panic over public health and sparking political upheaval at every decision made by local and federal officials alike. Now, a week after George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, a nationwide conversation is reignited with protests regarding racial injustice in the United States. There is an enormous amount of tension, hurt, and change that is upon the American people.
