Will 2017 Be My Year?

I'm hopefully optimistic that it will be great.

Will 2017 Be My Year?

Now that 2016 has officially come to a close, we can move on to 2017. After the great dumpster fire that was last year, I'm hopeful that 2017 will be the year that all of us need. There are so many good things coming our way in 2017 that, hopefully, it will turn out to be a good year. It would be difficult for things to go worse than they did in 2016, after all, and that's all I'm asking for.

This year there is so much for everyone to look forward to. Tons of great movies are coming out, so many great artists are going on tour, and shows will be coming back from hiatus super soon. I personally can't wait to see Panic! At the Disco in Columbus on their first ever stadium tour, and so many great movies are coming out that I couldn't begin to name all of the ones that I'm excited to see.

I'm also looking at a good year on a more personal level. I'm going to see Hamilton in Chicago at the end of January, and I absolutely can't wait. It might not be Broadway, but it's still going to absolutely phenomenal, especially with Karen Olivo as a member of the cast. I've been waiting to see this show for over a year, so I can't believe that it's almost here.

This year will also (hopefully) be the year that I am able to officially move out of my parents' house. I'm hoping to get an apartment for the summer and next school year so that I can stop living on campus and really start to experience life and everything college really has to offer.

Finally, I'm really hoping that I'll be able to find an internship in my field for this summer. I want to go into editing and publishing, so I'm planning to apply for internships in New York City so that I can really begin to experience my dream career. As much as I love writing and editing for Odyssey, it'll be exciting to experience the office setting of the job.

While I can't guarantee that 2017 will be my year, I'm hopefully optimistic that it will be. I really think that I have enough going for this year that I can make it mine, even if it isn't the best year overall. I'm excited to see what this year holds, but I won't know until I experience it.

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

9 Reasons 'The Wilds' Should Be Your Next Binge Watch

The Wilds is the Best New Show on Amazon Prime


As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
