What Is A Quarter-Life Crisis?

Aw, the quarter-life crisis, some people believe in it, others think it’s a lame excuse for people in their 20’s to be free sprits and not do anything.  So the question is, does the quarter-life crisis exist?  I am here to tell you that the quarter-life crisis is in fact a real thing, at least I believe so, because I feel like in a way I am going through mine now.

The next question is, what is the quarter-life crisis?  Well my good friend Wikipedia says that, “people experiencing a quarter life crisis often feel “lost, scared, lonely or confused” about what steps to take in order to transition properly into adulthood”.   This sounds crazy, I know, but when you think about it, once you leave college and start living on your own, life can be pretty crazy.  Yes, you go to college and learn how do skills that will fit whatever profession you pick, but there are no classes on how to survive once outside of college.

I mean think about, between the ages of birth to 18, you are raised and taken care of by your parents, guardians or whomever; you are in a bubble of some sorts.  Then after those 18 years you go to college, and there you are in another bubble for 4 more years, you just go from one safe bubble to another bubble.  Now at the age of 22 you are being sent out into the world, the safe bubble you have had for 22 years of your life is being popped.  There are some who find a new bubble right away, they find a job, they get married, they go to grad school, but then there are those who don’t know what to do or what the next step is, they don’t find a new bubble right away, and those are the ones in a quarter-life crisis.

You don’t have to believe in the quarter-life crisis, for all I know this feeling that I’m having is just me being crazy and a sign I should get on some meds or see a good therapist.  But if you do believe in it and even think your going through it, know that you’re not alone and that one day you’ll find your new bubble.

I leave you with this:

Quarter-Life Thankfulness

Being that today is Thanksgiving I thought I would make a quick list of why I am thankful that I am in my 20’s.  I know this goes against everything I wrote about in my earlier blog 10 Reasons it Suck’s To Be In Your 20’s, but it’s Thanksgiving and I don’t care what you say, so here we go:

1 ) I’m thankful that my boobs don’t sag yet.  Enough said.

2 ) I’m thankful that I’m still young enough that people don’t feel sorry for me when they find out I’m not married or that I don’t have children.

3 ) I’m thankful for Google and their fun turkey on their homepage.

4 ) I’m thankful that I only have a few grey hairs.

5 ) I’m thankful that I grew up with T.V. shows like Doug, Salute Your Shorts and All That.

6 ) I’m thankful that I can still ask my parents for money and only be judged a little.

7 ) I’m thankful that I still get carded when buying beer.

8 ) I’m thankful that McDonald’s has no age limit when buying a happy meal.

9 ) I’m thankful to have a wonderful boyfriend who helps me through my quarter life crisis.

And lastly…

10 ) I’m thankful to have all of you who read my blog.

Well there you have it, what I am thankful for in my 24th year of life.

Happy Thanksgiving!

10 Reasons It Suck’s To Be In Your 20’s

So I thought I would make a list of 10 reasons why it sucks to be in your 20’s.  Now, I’m not saying that everything about your 20’s sucks, but come on, there are somethings that really do suck about being 22, 25, 27 or whatever year you are in.  If you are somewhere between 20 and 29 years of age, there are for sure things that suck about it, don’t lie.  So here is my list of 10 reasons why it sucks to be in your 20’s:

1) Dating, if you didn’t meet that special person in high school or college, then you know what I’m talking about.

2) Snow does not mean a snow day.

3) Work, the reason you don’t get a snow day and also that thing you feel like you’re doing all the time and that is coming between you and sleep.

4)  You have to be cool. I don’t care who you are, there is this unspoken pressure that once you turn 20 you must be cool for the next 10 years. Because once you turn 30 there is no way you can be cool. I blame hipsters and the Kardashians for this.

5) Car problems.  Your cars transmission could care less about the number in your bank account, it’s going to break when it wants to, just hope you’re 30 when it does.

6) You still get acne. I thought this went away once I turned 20, I was wrong.

7) Debt, do I need to say more?

8 ) You are still treated like a child. For some reason every person older than you in your family will not see you as an adult until you are 30. Even if you are living on your own, they just won’t, deal with it.

9) You can’t drink or party like you used to.  So stop taping those 40’s to your hands and trying to be Edward 40-Hands.

and lastly,

10 ) The years go by faster, no really they do. I mean wasn’t it just January 1st? Now Christmas tress are up? What the fuck!?!

And there you have it folks.

Enjoy.
