I am having a quarter life crisis.
I'm nineteen, a Sophomore and freaking out. Some would argue that this is not the quarter of my life. Because a midlife crisis happens when an adult hits their fifties. So half of that would be twenty five, thus not making this crisis I'm having in not a quarter life crisis, but a fifth life crisis. When you think about it though, now a days the life expectancy is not as high as it used to be, I'm calling what I have a quarter life crisis.
The crisis? I have no idea what I'm going to do with my life. I constantly worry about everything about the future like what will happen to me after I graduate. Will I find a job right out of college or would I find an internship then work my way up to a job. Will I even be doing what I want or flipping burgers at the BK Lounge. Everything about my future just kept rushing into my head. I get headaches a lot.
Then one day while walking back to my dorm I was worrying so much about the future I looked up and realized I had no idea where I was. That was when reality slapped me in the face.
I'm a college student.
I shouldn't be worrying about all of that stuff right now. I should be embracing the college experience. Indiana University is such a beautiful and historic campus. I should be taking advantages off all of the events and resources the school has to offer. It's cheesy, but it's true. I'm only here for 2 more years. I need to make the most out of it.
