Quarter Life Crisis

10 Aug

Life at 20-something, like any stage of life has its ups and downs. You are no longer dependent on parents but at the same time ‘adults’ don’t take you seriously. You are stuck between between being a naive teenager and a self-assured wo/man. Life as a 20-something is a roller  coaster of fears, failures and a hell of a lot of fun.

I luckily have no real responsibilities – no children, no husband, mortgages or investments I need to worry about. My nipples aren’t looking at the floor (yet) and I have the world at my feet. But that amount of opportunity comes with its fair amount of  pressure – Where is my career going? How can I earn more money? When will I have kids? When will I get married? When can I buy a home? Do I need to invest? Why is my skin getting wrinkles? And with the world at my feet, what the hell do I do with it?

On the eve of my 25th birthday, unemployed and about to make and a move to a new city I thought I would start a blog to help me get myself through (my 4th) quarter life crisis. Wish me luck!
