{ Quarter Life Crisis }

It seems like everyday since graduation is a rollercoaster of emotions. Is this really what I worked so hard on? I spent 6 years in school (ridiculous amounts in debt) for this? A barely making ends meet life of unemployement... well... I did start M+J Design Bureau, but even that, as wonderful as it is, is hard. Soooo much harder than working for someone, even if that someone is a total douche who under appreciates your talent and makes you create birthday cards for his slutty daughters, only to then give you a 25% pay cut, that really won't pay your rent.... alright... enough of these rambles... but if you are a 20-something, a highly encourage this read, I've included a snippet. Thanks Matt for the send.

You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you do not realize is that they are realizing that too and are not really cold or catty or mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.
You look at your job. It is not even close to what you thought you would be doing or maybe you are looking for one and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and are scared. {via}

Keep your chin up. You aren't alone with these sentiments. Maintain a clear head and it will improve over time. I know.
