If you ever felt like you were born in the wrong decade then most probably you’re an old soul. In the era of millennials where everything is about what’s currently trending or modern, old souls just appreciate things from the past and if you’re one, you’ll love everything listed below with a burning passion.
#1 Style: The world is your runway guys!
Current fashion doesn’t matter, what does is the vintage look from the 1950s to the 1990s. Style is a way of expressing one’s identity and emulating that retro look from your favorite decade is your fashion goals. Your style icons range from Audrey Hepburn to Kurt Cobain. So, raiding your parents’ closet is a daily habit and thrift stores are your go-to for a great haul.
#2 Hobbies: What you do in your downtime defines you.
Okay, so when it comes to your downtime you prefer things people used to do before smartphones were created. Reading, drawing, playing instruments and basically anything that takes you away from reality for a while. Going to bookstores is like your jam especially browsing for new books that can take you back in time to your favorite time period.
#3 Entertainment: Nexflix or Downton Abbey?
Alright, some people call you a snob but modern music just isn’t your thing. You prefer filling your playlist with old school tracks like Sinatra or The Beatles. You have no idea what EDM is and hate going to clubs for that exact reason. Also, when it comes to movies, period films are binge-worthy and will make you cry out, “Oh why wasn’t I born then!”.
#4 Anti-trend: Rebel with a cause!
What is even trending? It doesn’t, you don’t care anyway. When people gossip about their favorite celeb couple or that show on Netflix with the impossible cute guy, your mind kinda just goes blank. What does pick your interest is going against any trend there is; crop tops? Nope, you’re fine with the standard length of shirts.
#5 Tech-free: Who said you can’t be a 21st century hippy?
Lastly, what paradise is to you is leaving your phone or tablet in a dark corner to be forgotten for as long as necessary for your soul to feel burden-free again. Legit guys, old souls can go an entire day of not week of not looking at a screen. This might seem insane since the world revolves around the internet but they just appreciate life through experiencing it first hand.
