12 Signs You And Your Roommates Are Old Souls

12 Signs You And Your Roommates Are Old Souls

The only people who understand your lifestyle are fellow old souls


Does the TV in your room always seem to be turned to the game show channel? Does your house have an unusual amount of blankets or mugs? If so, you and your roommates just might be old souls. Here are 12 more signs that just might apply to your current living situation.

1. You've played a board game or card game together in the last month

Nope, Cards Against Humanity doesn't count.

2. Your dinner plans revolve around Jeopardy

Roommate: "I want Jim's. But I also want to watch Jeopardy tonight. What time is it?"

Me: "6:30. If we leave right now we'll have plenty of time to do both."

Roommate: "Or we could call ahead in 15 minutes, then leave, so we can bring it back here and eat while we watch."

Me: "I like your thinking."

3. You have more soup in your room than any other food

Perfect for nights when you don't actually feel like going anywhere to find dinner.

4. In addition to Jeopardy, you also watch a lot of GSN

If you don't know what that logo stands for, you clearly aren't an old soul.

5. If GSN isn't on, CNN is

Old people always seem to have the TV on, just like you and your roommates do. And you always keep it on one of these two channels, just like old people do.

6. You have enough throw blankets for all of you plus guests!

Because you guys are always cold. Or even if you're not, you always have a blanket. You know, just in case you might become cold.

7. You own more mugs than shot glasses

So. Many. Mugs.

8. You all still read as a hobby

Afternoons spent reading are not uncommon in your household.

9. More often than not, you guys decide to just stay in on Saturday night

Saturday evening usually consists of an hour of talking like you guys might actually do something, before ultimately deciding that none of you want to.

10. Meaning that you're too lazy to do your make-up even on a good day

If you've already found roommates who think you're beautiful without make-up, what's the point anymore?

11. Sometimes you just need to go to bed at 9pm

And when one of you goes to sleep early, you all end up going to sleep early.

12. You all argue like you've been married for 50 years, but you love each other anyway

If you're an old soul, the only people who will understand your lifestyle are fellow old souls. Find them. Room with them. They really do make the best roommates!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

One of the biggest discomforts I initially had with the stay-at-home order was feeling trapped and isolated from what was going on outside the walls of my house. Add that to living in a massive city, where social distancing is nearly impossible when doing something as simple as walking down the street.

I've always been a picture hoarder. No matter what happens with someone or how many pictures I have of the same thing, I hate deleting pictures. They all serve as memories to me, which is something I think is super important.

These Phoebe Buffay Outfits Prove She's A '90s Fashion Icon — We're Replicating EVERY Single One

In case you needed another reason to love our favorite coffee shop singer.


I've always been described as the Phoebe of my friend group — not just for being a vegan, animal-loving people pleaser, but also for the false sense of confidence in my singing and athleticism.

I consider it a compliment to be labeled a Phoebe. Besides her general warmth, I was always drawn to her hippy-chic vibes and passion for environmentalism before it was even cool to be vegan or to care about the planet. The way she carelessly ran through parks flailing her limbs without a care mimicked her effortlessly eccentric style.

I Talked To My Friend About Her Cystic Fibrosis And Wow, CF Patients Are WARRIORS

Not many people can say they've had a double lung transplant.

Alissa Katz

Forty percent of the United States lives with a chronic disease. These diseases are unique in their own way, but one thing is the same — every individual who lives with a chronic condition faces obstacles because of their disease.

Not only do these illnesses require a lot of education for the individuals who have them, but for the community as a whole. The more we as a society know about these diseases, the more well-rounded (and ideally, helpful) we'll be. If anything, we'll have a greater appreciation for the strength individuals with chronic conditions show on a daily basis.
