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

Writing For Odyssey, As Told By Kanye West Tweets

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.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
