15 Signs You're Going Through a Quarter-Life Crisis

Now for those of you who haven't heard of "The Quarter-Life Crisis", have you been living under a rock?! Sorry, no really, a quarter-life crisis is defined by Urban Dictionary as "an age where a lot people start developing a more realistic outlook in life and start feeling that if they haven't accomplished certain things in life they thought they would by then that they may never (Even though this isn't true and they still have a long time to attain their goals and dreams)." 

If you don't get it by now, here are 15 signs that you're going through (or have gone through) a Quarter-Life Crisis.

1. You have so much wanderlust, you've googled "Best Cities to Live Young Professionals to Live" on Forbes at least 10 times this past week. 

2. On that note, you also have been calculating the cost of living index in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, and Nashville, and how long it would take you to move out there.

3. You are actually figuring out this whole "budgeting" thing. Or not, well at least you're aware that budgeting exists now.

4. Your thoughts on your love life have started to change. Do people actually talk about getting engaged now? Or can I use pronouns like "Us" and "We" now?

5. When your friends announce that they're pregnant, you're supposed to say "Congratulations!" instead of "What are you gonna do?"

6. It's finally not acceptable to eat Ramen or Mac & Cheese for dinner more than once a week. Unless you live alone and there's no one to judge you.

7. You're constantly comparing yourself to friends of your age or what your parents were doing at your age. Wait, you've had how many promotions?

8. All your friends are moving or have moved to other cities. I can Skype you tomorrow at 7 p.m. Eastern time.

9. Realizing that trying to make friends out of high school and college is actually really difficult.

10. But at the same time, finding really amazing friends that don't just use you because you were the "go-to party girl". No, sorry, I don't know the number for that frat boy we met last night...

12. Finding out that your college major really didn't matter. Can you mail merge? Great!

13. Accepting that day drinking, raging, and daily happy hours really are just not acceptable the majority of the time. And frankly, your hangovers just don't allow that sort of crap anymore.

14. Feeling wracked with indecision at every turn. But is this the career I want for the rest of my life? Should I buy this Kate Spade bag, or have grocery money for a month? Do I spell wracked with  a "w" or without?

15. Finally, realizing that this is what life is and after we've worked through our crisis, we've come through with wisdom. I haven't quite arrived at this point yet, so ya'll will need to let me know if this is true. Please tell me it's true!

Happy Friday!
