Poetry on Odyssey: A Lost Writer

Sometimes your best writing comes when you least expect it and when youre in misery. But sometimes it never comes back and your essence slowly diminishes into writers block.

Poetry on Odyssey: A Lost Writer
Camilla-Isabella Cantu

I am lost. She is lost

Writers block is creating a black cloud in my brain

And my fingers can't seem to think freely like they used to

My writing is my livelihood but I haven't had a time to

Introduce my poetry to the new me

She used to write from the abyss of emptiness she felt

A place so dark, darkness itself doesn't dare go in

And it's not like that place is gone

It's not like she could tell her new self to forget and reconstruct

Because from that place, she was born

She lifted herself from the ashes of the paper she burnt

Because she didn't deem it good enough

Because she didn't deem herself good enough

But her self-esteem only lifted her to the point of living

But never feeling alive

So she would spill her guts on the paper

Her beating heart dripped of red ink

And for those few pages, she was alive

But that part of her has slowly whittled

She tries to enjoy the little things now

To make an effort to go out with friends and leave the house

However, the constant moving and refusal to go back

Has left her in an empty abyss within her own writing

A place so empty of words that the silence is deafening

I am happy. She is complicated

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
