Quarter Life Crisis

Came across this forward... Found it to be pretty relevant so couldn't help posting it here!!!

26-29 is not a nice age for a man... your ex-gfs are getting married, Your career has just started, Elders treat you as unproven theorems, College guys feel that you are too old to have in their group... You seem to enjoy both cartoon and news. You can no longer eat whatever you wish without putting on weight. You look like an ape if you don’t shave daily. You are not invited for weekend cricket matches.

Every Aunty you meet ask “Shaadi kab kar rahe ho beta!!” while uncle asks “Career ka kya socha hai beta…”... When the reality is that you are just riding the wave and going with the flow… You have all the confidence in the world but little achievements to show, You already have the first hand experience of the life, You know that whatever you have been taught about the world in schools has been sheer waste of time. You can be denied a job even after passing the test and you could be given a job if you know someone placed high enough… Politics till now was a dirty word but now you feel it everywhere.

You know now love is not that blind and that friendship has its terms and conditions…You know there is nothing for granted and free lunches are not free… Your overconfidence is now making way for a humble conscience… You now know it is not exactly what you thought it would be…

Hi Shri, nice write up. Makes sense!! Every age is a phase!! Move on and enjoy it, though in the beginning it can be a little confusing.

Hahahahaha :P ... Talk about 20's Mid Life Crisis ... I don't understand that why is everyone getting married these days? Keep it cool ... its never too late to get married or to live life ... Keep romancing with life. :)
