Writing For Odyssey, As Told By Kanye West Tweets

It's Ye's world, we're just writing in it.


Writing for Odyssey is awesome -- getting to harness your creativity to write about things you feel strongly about is cool enough, but using this platform to reach your peers in meaningful ways is pretty much unparalleled. What you may or may not know is that each and every Odyssey article is a product of lots of brainstorming, web browsing, GIF hunting, writing and rewriting, not to mention copious amounts of tender love and care.

But let's focus on this idea that Odyssey writers produce content that they're passionate about. Some writers focus their content on politics. Others on race, gender relations, sports, and often many choose to write about Greek life. But I just want to produce content that makes people smile as they hit the share button to let their 839 closest friends know they enjoyed a piece on the hot doctors on "Grey's Anatomy."

And that brings us here: What it's really like to write an Odyssey article. As told by Kanye West tweets, of course. Because, duh.

Choosing a killer topic for the week:

Writing your first few sentences:

So far, so good! You're on a roll and nothing can stop you.

But then, you hit a wall:

Inspiration strikes again! Your writer's block is over and you're back on track:

Only to get distracted a few minutes later:

Momentary panic that you'll miss your deadline:

Even if it's days away.

You finish up and read everything over, only to realize you totally digressed and nothing actually makes sense:

Going back in and fixing everything:

Finding the perfect gifs and pictures to accompany your piece:

You're satisfied, so you send it off to your editors so they can make sure everything's absolutely perfect:

And finally, your piece is published and you get to share it:

Boom. Drop mic.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

Naya Rivera Is Missing, And She Deserves SO Much More Than Being Labeled 'Big Sean's' Ex'

We are all sending prayers to Naya Rivera hoping she finds them so we can find her.

I woke up this morning looking to find Naya Rivera's name trending No. 1 on Twitter. I was reading all of everyone's prayers wishing to find her so she can be reunited with her baby boy who is only 4 years old.

Naya's son's name is Lord and the entire collective is hoping the Lord is with him right now. I'm a firm believer in the Fear of God, I hope all of Naya's love is protecting Lord right now.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
