The mid-”mid-life crisis”…

by guestofaguest · June 18, 2007

...Otherwise known as the Quarter Life Crisis, this is something that hits much closer to home for us.  Characteristics may include:

feeling "not good enough" because one can't find a job that is at one's academic/intellectual level

frustration with relationships, the working world, and finding a suitable job or career

confusion of identity

insecurity regarding the near future

re-evaluation of close interpersonal relationships

nostalgia for university or college life

tendency to hold stronger opinions

boredom with social interactions

financially-rooted stress

a sense that everyone is, somehow, doing better than you

Reading through the above characteristics is like reading a textbook on our life.  So, since we're not quite ready to start a band in our non-existent garages (need to own a house first for that to happen), the only thing that has been working to cure this crisis we're in is to act like we are 5 again.  And that's precisely what we did this weekend:
