13 Signs You Are An Old Soul Trapped In A Young Body

You feel more like a fifty year old than a twenty year old.

13 Signs You Are An Old Soul Trapped In A Young Body

"The old soul doesn't see the purpose of pursuing things that can be easily taken away from them. Additionally, old souls have little time and interest for the short-lived things in life, as they bring little meaning or long lasting fulfillment for them."

Here are 13 signs you may be an old soul:

1. You spend a lot of time doing things on your own.

You tend to be alone, and enjoy it. You likely have well developed social-skills, yet still choose to spend your days alone. This is not because of anxiety or depression, but rather something you are comfortable doing and seek out.

2. You are very inquisitive.

Because of this, you may find yourself spending a lot of time reading, learning, and exploring new things. You probably ask a lot of questions about the world and the things that happen in it.

3. You're not like the people your age.

You'd rather stay in on a Friday night instead of going out to that party everyone else is attending. Maybe the other college age people think you're boring, or even anti-social, but you're just doing you.

4. You're responsible and independent.

And you always have been. You're unusually stable and reliable for your age, every since you were a small child.

5. You're extremely sensitive.

You're an empath. You truly care about others and what they have to say.

6. Mainstream society seems silly to you.

You don't always understand the hype and excitement of things people your physical age are into. You don't always care, for that matter.

7. You're friends with people more than twice your age.

You relate to them better. They may even forget you're young enough to be their child.

8. You're more mature than most.

You're wise beyond your years, and it shows. You're the source of advice for your friends.

9. You value deep connections.

Quality over quantity. Surface-level relationships aren't for you.

10. You're early to bed and early to rise.

Your bedtime is 9pm, after all. If you sleep past 8am, you're sick.

11. Reading on a kindle?

Why would you do that? You'd much rather have the real thing in hand, so you can feel the pages and mark up notes in the margins.

12. You feel you were born in the wrong era.

You relate to other time periods and cultures much more than your own. You dream of what it would be like to live back then.

13. You're perfectly content the way you are.

Other's probably don't understand you, but you don't mind. You wouldn't change for the world.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
