What I Miss About College Already After My First Year

It was super convenient living no more than a 10-minute walk from everyone and everything.

What I Miss About College Already After My First Year

Ask any college student home for the summer and they’ll tell you they’ve already lost track of the days. We don’t know what day of the week it is or what time it is or if we have any responsibilities.

People will ask me what I’m doing on a certain day and my response is “I don’t know, probably nothing,” because I actually don’t know and am probably down to do whatever.

It’s weird. I knew I would miss college but I didn’t realize all of the little things I would miss.

First of all I miss my friends and living either right down the hall or across the street from them. I miss being surrounded by them constantly as opposed to my family. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family, but they tend to get on my nerves a lot quicker now than they used to.

I miss having meals ready for me whenever I wanted and having a variety of options. So far I’ve eaten pizza for at least one meal a day and I’m pretty sure I’ve accidentally skipped at least one meal everyday too. I just went grocery shopping with my dad and had to make sure we bought fruit and vegetables.

I miss the gym being across the street from me and jogging over at 4:15 to meet all of my running friends. I miss the Fort Collins trails being no more than a mile or two away from me. I miss the team bonding events.

I actually miss my job, which is crazy, and my coworkers. They annoyed the heck out of me but made coming to work bearable. It’s Thursday as I’m writing this and I miss walking back to the dorms from work with my best friend, gossiping, and grabbing a snack before procrastinating for at least an hour.

I miss having a lofted bed because that was super cool and gave me so much extra space. I miss my room being semi-clean. Now it just consists of semi-emptied boxes and clothes all over the floor and me spending a ridiculous amount of time looking for things that I want or need every day.

It's crazy how much your life can change in a matter of nine months. I’ll cherish the memories and friendships I made and continue to cherish and make more. After all, I’ve only got another three years.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

This month, Odyssey brings about awareness & normality to conversations around mental health from our community.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
