A few months ago I released a new survey on my blog, teasing and getting your thoughts on new series coming to the blog. One of which is Truthful Tuesday, where I would be sharing opinions about different topics (some serious topics some more jokey ones). And even though its been over a month since I first released that survey, I have yet to write my first Truthful Tuesday post. But here’s it is.
Now I have a confession for all of you.
I am a twenty-something grandma. No, I don’t have any real grandchildren but I feel like I live the life of an “old soul”. And to be completely honest I’m 100% okay with that.
Now some of you may be wondering what do I mean when I say that well let me give you some evidence.
–I go to bed super early! Now part of my reasonings for that has to do with the fact that I work long days. Most days I leave my house at about 6:25 AM and don’t return until about 6:30 (at the earliest), normally closer to 7. And I like knowing that I’m getting my 8 hours of sleep and most mornings when I wake up I don’t feel over tired and I’m ready to start my day at the early hour of 5:30am.
–I no longer sleep in on the weekends: Okay let me throw out a quick disclaimer, sleeping in is relative and trust me I get that. When I worked over night shifts in college I would sleep until noon or sometimes 2pm because I would be up most of the night. Now most weekends I don’t sleep past 8 AM and I get so much more done during the day. And I have so much energy.
–I’m not a huge partier (like at all): This is something that has always been true about me. I don’t like being in super crowded places especially if they are small and crowded. Which may seem weird since I love crowed places like Disney World. But the idea of being a tight space with a bunch of people that I need to be nice to and talk to and be social with, no thank you!
–I’m not a big drinker or smoker: I do drink, I’m over 21 years old so its perfectly legal for me to have a drink or two when I feel like it. And sometimes I do, it’s like a maybe twice a month thing but I do drink sometimes. And I do enjoy when I do, not that I get super drunk, I hate not being in control. And I don’t smoke at all. I don’t judge people who do (maybe someday I’ll do a Truthful Tuesday on my opinion on all of that) but I have never had any interest in that.
–I love cliche phrases from long ago: Most people my age use terms like “Lit” and “Bet” and sometimes I do. But I often use phrases like “I’ll that and bag of chips.” And when I catch myself using those phrases all I can think is, where did that come from?
–I often prefer older shows to newer ones: I would rather watch shows on repeat on sites like Netflix or Amazon Prime and watch shows from the 80s and 90s then watch some of the stuff on TV now.
Don’t get me wrong I also have aspects where I’m just like any other girl in their mid twenties. But I also truly believe that I have an old soul.
Do you think you have an old soul or young soul? Let me know in the comments down below.
