Have you ever read blogs and wanted to know what it was like to write them yourself? Odyssey gives you that opportunity and also, if you write through a community, you can meet new people who have similar interests as you. That's what motivated me to start writing for Odyssey and what I hope motivates you to start as well!

Do you have a love for writing?

If you answered yes to that question, continue reading. Personally, I have always loved to write. I took extra writing classes in high school. I love the feeling of writing and escaping from reality, at least for a little bit.

If you feel the same way or even just like writing and want your writing to be seen by others and heard, I recommend writing for Odyssey. There are little to no limits about what you can write and publish onto Odyssey.

For example, you can write about anything between Lifestyle to Health and Wellness to just random posts discussing any topic that you feel passionate about. The only thing you really can't do is say anything discriminating or use racial slurs, but that's obvious.

That's one of the things I love most about Odyssey. You can really write about anything you want and you're bound to find people who have the same interests and read your article!

You can make friends through Odyssey!

Usually, a lot of creators for Odyssey are members of different communities through their universities. For example, my university has a community and I'm a member of it. If you're in college and you want to start writing for Odyssey, try and find out who the President is and how to sign up. Within your community, you have the opportunity to make friends with the people you are in the community with. It is a great way to make friends with people who share the same interests as you!

If what I wrote about interests you, I highly recommend you sign up for Odyssey, you won't regret it!

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
