Going Back To School As Told By 'Rick And Morty'


Going Back To School As Told By 'Rick And Morty'
Adult Swim

School is starting back up, and I can't help but feel a mix of "yay!" and "ugh..." simultaneously. A new school year brings with it new chances for growth and self-advancement but also many sleepless nights and wine ruined by your own tears. But take heart- we here at the Odyssey feel this pain and have the best thing to get you through the initial school year emotional roller coaster: sarcasm.

1. Excitement!

It's been three whole months off of school and you couldn't be happier to go back! You're excited to see your friends, start your classes and make your way closer to that sweet, sweet degree. You already have your pencil bag packed and ready to go.

2. Reality.

Uh oh, you just looked up text book prices didn't you? Take a deep breath and cling to your last free weekend before a black hole of work inevitably sucks up your social life.

3. Put on your game face.

You pull yourself together, give yourself a pep talk and head to campus ready to take on your first day!

4. "Oh sh*t."

You come back only to realize once you get to class you are not even prepared. Like at all.

5. Plan.

To try to stay on top of things, you reinstate your school schedule. You get up early, go to the gym, eat.. I don't know, kale? And make it a point to go to bed at a decent hour.

6. Team no sleep.

Just as you start to think you're on top of things, you get to lecture and realize you're going to have to SparkNote the hell out of the chapter you forgot to read just to get today's participation points.

7. Keep trucking on!

You keep at it; study groups, late nighters and coffee have once again become your closest friends. Sometimes though the pressure is too much, and you can't help but scream out in anguished agony.

8. "Extra-Curriculars"

To combat the stress, you may engage slightly in some rather..."adventurous" activities...

9. Treat yo self.

You wake up the next day and remember what you did last night... BUT tbh you worked hard and deserved it. So don't let any haters tell you otherwise.

10. Back to work!

OK, you've had your fun. You keep studying your tush off so you only to go into your first exam like...

11. But it's OK...

Because no matter how overwhelmed you may feel your studying and hard work IS paying off, and you come out victorious!! Look at that epic test score!

12. "I GOT THIS."

You realize that though this school year is sure to bring it's challenges, you're gonna get through it just fine. Therefore my children, do not fret. You've DO have this! Wub-a-lub-a-dub-dub!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
