Friend Soulmates

I've Found My Soulmate But It Isn't Who You Would Expect

Who said soulmates had to be romantic?

Soulmates seem to be one fantasy everyone thinks about. I remember being little and dreaming of one day finding my soulmate. Thinking there was one guy out there that was made for just me and would turn my world upside down. Little did I know that by the middle of my sophomore year in college I would find my soulmate. Actually soulmates, seven of them to be exact. And these soulmates aren't guys that came into my life and swept me off my feet. They are the most incredible seven girls I know.

These girls are the fiercest, kindest, and most loyal people I've ever met. They push me to become the absolute best version of myself, not only by encouraging me to do so but by inspiring me with how truly amazing each one of them is. They are the type of girls who will drop whatever they are doing to come see me when I'm having a bad day. We've all wiped away each other's tears, shared countless laughs, and helped each other back up when one of us falls. Our similarities are what brought us together, but our differences are what cause us to all fit so perfectly together.

I've always wanted to be a part of a "girl gang", and now I finally am (and let me tell you it lives up to the hype). The memories I make with these girls are going to be what I look back on when I'm older and reminiscing on my college years. Whether we are having a night in that consists of eating junk food and ranting about boys or going out for a night of fun, we always seem to somehow get into some wild situation that we can't stop laugh about the next day. I am incredibly lucky to have found a group of girls that makes life so unpredictable and interesting.

Now I know when you think "soulmate" you probably think of who you are going to end up marrying and starting a life with, but I've come to realize soulmates can't be confined to just romantic relationships. Your soulmate can be anyone in your life, and I'm lucky to call my seven best friends mine.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

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.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

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?
