There’s more than one Kat that blogs around here. There’s my little girl, of course, but there’s also the Catholic nerd and the bitter one. (I’m not quite sure how I get the both the anti-Christ and someone who makes brilliant posts on blogs4God coming here, but I digress…
It is a mission from the Blissfully Bitter Kat that brings me to your door a-beggin’. You see, she is a real writer with one o’ them fancy jobs and stuff. Her topic du jour is the Quarter Life Crisis:
Okay lurkers, I’ve got a mission for you.
I’m working on an article about the quarter-life crisis and how we’re getting through it.
If you’re in (or have ever been) your long dark 20s, tell me what got you through the rough patch. You can also share your symptoms, stories of miserable twentysomething life, and how you think the quarter-life crisis is a bunch of hooey and is just another buzzword created by the Overlords. I’ll most likely agree with you on the latter, but it’ll get cut from the article because it’s not “inspirational” enough and once again I’ll have to sell out without getting anything in return, leaving me cranky, bitter, and ready for the sweet release of death. But you just might get your name in a pretty magazine and who can resist that?
Apparently, lots of people could, since she hasn’t gotten a nibble. I told her I’d toss it into the Solonor Show Ring and see if some of the goofballs here could help her out.
So, have you been through the crisis of confidence that hits at 25-ish? Did you come out sane? Write to Kat at katharsisjones AT hotmail DOT com (you know the anti-spam drill).
