Quarter Life Crisis

Quarter-life crisis is

  • Feeling like you have no one to talk to even when you have people by your side.
  • Watching ‘Gilmore Girls’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ episode after episode, at a stretch.
  • Sleep cycle follows a different time-zone than the one you are in geographically.
  • Living in at your parent’s place after 5 years of college freedom.
  • Unpaid internships and feeling lousy about it.
  • Scary thought of you turning out to be a cat-lady who knits all day.
  • Refreshing Twitter and Instagram page at a rate of million times per second.
  • Tweeting about your every mentally deranged thought.
  • Texting becomes way cooler than actual talking on phone
  • Terrified of the question, “So what are you up to these days?”
  • Wishing the earth would swallow you on hearing this, ” What are your future plans?”
  • Making wrong decisions after wrong decisions.
  • Finding God midst the confusion.
  • Feeling totally alone. A disappointment. A failure – all in the same minute.
  • Feeling like stuck in the same cycle of nothingness.
  • …while you see all your friends moving on with life.
  • Hating any public events, community get-together or family parties.
  • Missing all your friends, even your first-grade enemy.
  • Living in the virtual world aka ‘The Internet’
  • Unread books are your best friends.
  • Losing and gaining weight as though it depends on the air you breathe.
  • Wondering everyday when will this rut of despair get over.
  • Getting up one fine morning to realize you have successfully survived the crisis era.

    I remember being there too…trust yourself, listen to your heart, be grateful for all you have and all things change.
