Odyssey: A Platform That Allows Writers To Find Their Vocations

Why Odyssey? Well for all you readers out there, you probably have seen thousands of articles appear on your facebook walls from the semi-random online forum called Odyssey. And as time has gone on, you've probably gotten annoyed of the thousands of posts of week popping up on your feed - well I am sorry and I get it.

Before being a part of this writing platform, I was annoyed too. I never understood what the hype of all these articles that seemed the same to me was. Now, being a writer for Odyssey, I understand the greatness.

Being a part of something bigger than myself has taught me many things that have changed me for the better.

Odyssey has allowed myself and other writers to have our voices heard. Whether we decided to write about politics, life hacks or just casual life experiences, we can choose. Having the ability to write whatever, whenever is a tool that has taught us how to reach our target audience and gain an understanding of what our voice wants to be as writers.

Being a part of a community that is so supportive of one another has been an experience in itself and one I would never take back. Even if cramming to write an article before the deadline was something that stressed me out at times, the outcome of seeing how many people read or share your articles makes it all worthwhile.

Just a year and a half ago, I had no idea who I wanted my future vocation to be. Now, after writing for Odyssey, I have gained a passion for writing. While writing I have discovered what I am most interested in writing about. Usually, as I cram to write an article or have an endless amount of time I find myself writing about travel, day-to-day experiences or certain opinions that I have towards technology or just life itself.

These 50+ articles I have written over the time being have shaped me into the writer I am today and person I strive to be. Someone who is informative, open-minded and knows the facts. Without Odyssey, I would still be the same person I was a year and a half ago not having an idea in the world on what I want my future to even hold.

Thank you, Odyssey for giving me that outlook and allowing others to experience the same.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
