Another Quarter Life Crisis Averted!

natalie dee

A couple of weeks ago I almost had another Quarter Life Crisis. I've had two official ones and several unofficial ones. I'm just the Quarter Life Crisis Queen. I guess I figured that wasn't enough and I should have one more before I turn thirty. Seriously, can I just turn thirty right now and leave my twenties behind? I can't take much more of this. I am my own worst enemy. I had myself so upset and frustrated with my life that I was contemplating joining a circus and traveling around the country. Ok. That last part is an exaggeration. I would never join the circus. I hate clowns. I really wasn't thinking very rationally or looking at the big picture. Luckily, a friend was able to talk some sense into me and I worked my way out of a full-blown QLC. It just wasn't a very pleasant experience filled with lots of crabbiness, emotional eating, and Radiohead music. Things seem to be much better since I got the last mini QLC out of me.

Ugh. I just need to turn thirty. A little less than four months to go! Seriously, my thirties have to be better than my twenties, right? Thirty is the new Twenty.

When I turned thirty, I had a full-on crisis. It hit me at that point that I will NEVER BE FAMOUS. And all my life, all I ever wanted was to be famous.

And now, at 35, I have a segment on Fox 9. Which is akin to fame - being on TV.

Your thirties will rock. Trust me.
