To The Millennial With An Old Soul

You're not alone.

To The Millennial With An Old Soul

To the millennial with an old soul,

I see you. I know your plight so very well.

You don't seem to fit in with people your age.

It's likely that you have a hard time understanding why people your age act the way they do.

You'd rather spend a Saturday night having dinner with friends rather than partying.

You'd rather visit a museum or go for a run than get drunk.

If you have an old soul, you focus on the things that are eternal rather than material items.

You see a person's heart rather than the brand of clothing he or she has on.

You know that all of the nice suits and fancy cars will one day pass away.

If you have an old soul, you are genuine; you're you no matter where you go.

You're not easily impressed by titles or rank.

If you have an old soul, you're probably careful in the things you do; you like to have a plan.

You know where you want to go in life, and you don't have time to waste time.

If you have an old soul, you cherish those you love more than the average person.

You have strong family ties and though it takes a while for you to warm up to people, when you love someone, you love them well.

If you have an old soul, you probably feel older than you really are and you attract older people.

You take pleasure in the simple things, such as driving on a nice day with the windows rolled down or finding a good book to read in a rocking chair.

You often dream about the world before you existed; you're fascinated with people from the past.

If you have an old soul, you are careful with your body, including who you give yourself to.

If you have an old soul, you've learned to be careful with your heart.

If you have an old soul, you value respect and honesty. You say what you mean and mean what you say. You do your best to not lead people astray.

If you're a millennial with an old soul, there's nothing wrong with you. There's no shame in valuing your heart, body, and time. There's no shame in not getting wasted on a Saturday night. There's no shame in knowing what you want and what you deserve. There's no shame in being true to yourself.

Summer Slump

Summer isn't alway just fun in the sun.

Summer Slump

Summer is a time for fun in the sun, hanging out with friends, and living it up, but for some people, that's not the case. Summer is a nightmare for idle minds. Let me explain what I mean by that. For people with mental illness having the extra time to think and relax can be devastating for their mental health. Now, this isn't a problem for everyone but for some people who suffer from mental illness, this is a reality.

NYC Classrooms struggle with marijuana and high students

The Cannabis landscape has changed, and so have what schools experience
