Today I was called an "old soul"?

does that mean I'm boring and feeble or somethin?

It simply means you have wisdom, knowledge, and understanding beyond your years. It usually means you are able to look at difficult situations or concepts in terms of a larger, bigger picture. You've got a mature, thoughtful, wise head on your shoulders, more so than others your age.

From what I've understood about that term, it means you are knowledgeable beyond your years. You know more than you should for someone your age

I've been doing great until recently; going through a rough patch but I think it's getting better. :) I'm taking philosophy and psychology at the community college and really enjoying it! And I'm most likely moving out soon after the semester ends! I baby sat a German shepherd puppy recently, made me think of you, cause I know you love to take care of animals. :) I've missed you too! How have you been??

I've been busy and Happy2BeBusy2! We tore our house to shreds to redo the entire exterior. I've only been able to peek at Ask. I really miss the friendships here. I hope I'm remembered when I can really come back.

Sorry about the rough patch.... (Life throws those at us. Sometimes I feel 72 not 52. 0.o Hope you came through as beautiful as ever. I adore you!)

....Then, life sends a ray of joy!!!
A puppy? FUN!!!

Woa! Sounds like a lotta work! Sounds like you're busy; but I think being busy can be nice. :) Glad you were absent for BUSY-NESS, and not something else! Nice to see you back though. :) What? Forget happy? I don't think that's possible; I'm sure others will definitely remember you. :)

Thanks. It crazy how that works; things are amazing and you've got everything all figured out, and looking up, then an ugly hurtle has to make its way through. It'll get better though, I know that. :) Thanks, happy! And yes; I wanted to keep it!

Shaylen, I must say that reading your answers for my "star shower" reminded me why I enjoy following you. I have faith in you to overcome any hurdle life throws at you. You and Cj are always spot on. <3

Do you have a k or a v in your surname or given name? An "old Soul", as I understand the term is one who has collected wisdom from past lives and uses it to be helpful in this life. Some people believe on reincarnation and believe that in each life we get better and closer to perfection and God.

It usually means you have vintage taste. My mom said it to me when I commented about the beauty of an old painting. I believe it to be a noble complement. the up side is you are classy, the done side is you might not fit in all that well.
