My Quarter Life CrisisSo what do you do when nothing in your life goes the way you have planned?
No seriously. G-Fab will tell you, I have been going through my Quarter-life crisis for like a year now. I left a decent paying job (that i hated) as a bank teller to go back to graduate school because i thought History was my calling. I mean i have always loved it and I'd like to think I'm pretty good at it. Now that I've finished Graduate school and won't be going on to PhD this year, I don't really know what to do with my life.
I still think History is my calling and PhD is where i am going to end up. But i don't know what to do in the interim. I've started job hunting
It's just really scary having no idea where my life is headed. I'm used to planning everything in advance because i am an anal-retentive, micro-manager,
This just isn't where i expected to be at 26 years old. I thought i would be at some great job i loved and married and starting a family. Or at least I expected to be... somewhere. I don't feel like anything has changed for me since i graduated high school. Sure I have two more degrees, but i just don't know where my life is going. I'm still just pushing forward without being able to see the road ahead of me. I don't know what I'm searching for or where its heading. For all i know i could be going down the entirely wrong path. I just feel adrift in life...
Yes, I realize that i am blowing this out of proportion. I will most likely find a good paying job and be just fine. It's just the not knowing that makes me a crazy person...
