I feel as people, we either really like people that share the same name as us or we completely hate them. But when you find somebody who you like and has the same name as you, what happens? You become best friends. And some pretty unique things come with sharing the same name as your best friend. So here are 12 things that happen when your best friend is also your name twin.

1. When you talk about them, people assume that you're talking in third person.

Listen if I was talking about myself I wouldn't use my name.

2. You have to use middle and last names in certain situations.

In band, cheerleading, school, work and around our families, we've been Sarah S, Sarah W, Sarah Maria..and so on.

3. You fight over who gets to be "Sarah 1" and "Sarah 2".

I'm slightly older so I feel like I'm the alpha and get the Sarah 1 privilege.

4. You get referred to as the "Sarahs."

Or whatever name you have.

5. You get to caption your pictures as "Sarah Squared."

Basic but necessary.

6. Their parents call you "their other daughter Sarah."

or their other son and whatever your name is lol.

7. People ask you if your only friends with people who have the same name as you.

No, but it's a bonus lol.

8. You get to confuse people when you introduce yourself.

The looks we've gotten when we say that we're both Sarah are great.

9. But you make it easier for other people to remember names.

I mean come on, there's only one name to remember.

10. They feel the struggle when somebody spells your name wrong.

Sarah with the h= the good Sarah, and Sarah without the h= the bad Sarah

11. You both look and respond when somebody says your name.

Uhhh we're going to need yo to be more specific.

12. You have a name twin, and one that you actually like.

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.

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.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
