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!

My Twilight Rant

I have always been a big believer of the camaraderie that comes along with midnight releases for movies, books, and movies made from a book.  I mean this was me at the last Harry Potter movie release…

 

As you see, I love midnight releases.  However I feel like there is one that has taken it a little too far, the Twilight movies.  Now, I will confess that I have read all the Twilight books and have been to the past 3 midnight movie releases.  However I have grown out of it and never once have I dressed up for a Twilight movie release, nor have a screamed when the movie started.  As I said before I love the camaraderie of midnight releases.

This brings me to my point….

The new Twilight movie comes out at midnight tonight and I’m sure there are lines forming at every theatre right now with crazy fans dying to see that weird vampire sparkle or the wolf boys abs.  I’m sure you’re wondering why after everything I said before I am not there with them.  Well here’s why:  I have realized that those ‘twihards’ that are over the age of 19 are giving the rest of us 20-somethings a bad name and I refuse to be a part of that.   I mean if you’re 26 and screaming when that Jacob kid takes off his shirt, then that is just weird and makes the rest of us look equally as crazy.  I mean the kid is like 18 or something, you could have been his baby-sitter.

Another thing that bugs me about these over 19 ‘twihards’ is the tattoos. I understand loving a book/movie series, I love the Harry Potter books/movies as we can see from the embarrassing picture above, however that doesn’t mean that I’m going to get a tramp stamp of a broomstick and wand on my lower back that I’ll have to live with the rest of my life. I mean tell me in 10 years they won’t regret these:

 

Yeah, that’s what I thought. Try explaining those to your grandkids.

And I’m all for team spirit but those Team Edward and Team Jacob shirts drive me crazy! They are fine to wear to the midnight releases, some might even call them cute, but when they become a staple of your everyday wardrobe, then you have a problem.  And if you are going to get a Team sparkly vampire, wolf boy or whoever shirt, please get one that fits, no one wants to see your muffin hanging out, remember you are 23, not 16.

I’m not saying it is wrong too like these books or movies, all I’m saying is when you turn into a little 14 year old screaming for the movies it gets a little annoying and no one thinks you are an grown 20 something, they think you’re crazy.  Because no one looks at this and thinks, ‘wow, those are some outstanding women’:

 

And there you have it, my quarter-life rant of the day.

Hello Crisis!

Well here I am.

I guess this is the time when I should introduce myself. Well, I’m 5’3, brown curly hair with big eyes. I’m that person who hardly ever laugh at other people’s jokes, I sometimes cry for no good reason, I like to dip my grilled cheeses in ketchup, I’m dating this amazing guy who is head over heels for me and the most important of all, I’m crazy.  I am in this moment going through what many might say is a quarter life crisis, yes I believe there are such a thing as a quarter life crises and I am going through it.  What is a quarter-life crisis you ask?  Well to steel from my favorite dictionary, the urban one, a quarter-life crisis usually occurs sometime in your twenties, a few years out of school and still feeling as thought you’re waiting for your life to begin.

And that is just what I am doing, I am 24, I’m back in school and I’m waiting for my life to begin.  So this blog is about me and anyone else out there who is just trying to find themselves.
