25 Signs You’re Having a Quarter Life Crisis
Remember when you were younger, and 25 years old seemed so grown up? I, for one, had grand plans of owning a house, getting married, and working in my dream (and very-well-paying) job by the time I hit 25.
However, the reality was very different.
By the time I blew out the candles on my 25th birthday cake I was in the eye of a rather rough, quarter-life-crisis storm. Despite many years of study, I had just decided that I didn’t want to be a psychologist after all. My back-up plan? Well, it was non-existent. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life!
On top of that, I was dating a guy who—quite frankly—couldn’t have cared less about me. I was drinking and partying A LOT to escape the feeling that I was seriously lost. I was so desperate to get my life on track after graduating university that I took the first job I was offered without any real thought as to whether I would like it or not. No surprise: I hated it!
Thankfully, I have since moved through my quarter-life crisis and out to the other side (yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel!).
From my own experience I can tell you there are plenty of signs, but here are my top 25 signs you're having a quarter life crisis:
 You feel like your job is a prison cell, and you’ve got to break out ASAP.
 You love buying designer brands because they make you look like you have it together on the outside (but on the inside you’re a hot mess).
 Seeing your Facebook newsfeed filled with wedding and pregnancy posts makes you want to throw your phone at the wall.
 You’re secretly (or not-so-secretly) dreading your high school reunion.
 You seriously suspect you’re allergic to ‘adulting.’ Writing a budget? Unbearable. Paying bills? Debilitating. Grocery shopping? Horrendous. Finding a matching pair of socks? Near-fricking-impossible.
 You’re highly skilled at watching entire seasons on Netflix in one sitting, while simultaneously Facebook stalking your exes.
