I Am Proud Of My School That I Will Be Buried In My College Gear

I Will Be Wearing My College T-Shirts Until I Die Because I Am So Proud Of My School

College pride is NOT something be ashamed of.


I am four months away from graduating college and that's pretty scary. I know most people claw their way out to finish college, sick of the papers, the late-night studying and the early morning classes. I actually really loved all of that. Of course, not at the time. I have never walked into a mid-term with a smile on my face, but I am someone who really adored the college experience.

I think everyone's definition of a college experience is a bit hazy, but the experience I had isn't one I would replace.

There are things I am really not going to miss about college. I am not going to miss the stress of waiting for an assignment grade to come back. I am not going to miss the feeling you get after you did really horribly on an assignment that you needed to well in. I am not going to miss waiting in line for an hour just so you can get a mediocre sandwich to eat in your next class.

There are things I really am going to miss that I didn't know I ever needed in a college experience. I am going to miss getting dinner with your friends almost every night, even if you're quietly doing your own thing most the time. I am going to miss making new friends randomly on campus. I am going to miss basketball games and group study sessions. I am going to miss inside jokes with your whole class and the feeling of success when you finally got the grade you've been working hard on.

I am ready to graduate and I'm beyond thrilled to move on to the next chapter of my life, whatever it may be. Even though I will no longer carry a backpack around everywhere I go and hum school spirit fight songs that I chanted the night before, I will still hold my college pride with me.

I will remain best friends with my college friends, watch them get their dream careers, marry people who love them with their whole heart and even have little versions of themselves running around one day. I will fly across the country for birthdays, reunions or made-up reasons so we can see each other.

I will continue to achieve my own ambitions but carry these college experiences with me.

And of course, I will continue to wear my college shirts until I die.

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.
