Pre Mid Life Crisis???Previously looking back on my life I've never felt like I had any regrets. I was doing what I wanted: hanging out with friends& my boyfriend, having fun, practicing my hobbies(painting, drawing, reading, hiking etc), living on my own since 18 so lots of part time jobs and working, going out dancing, traveling to Europe for two months with my boyfriend.... There was never anything I felt I would need to change or regret.
But still, being 3 years away from 30, is making me feel as if I am having some sort of quarter(ish) life crisis. A practice round for the mid life crisis?
Why haven't I focused on my career in any way?
Why did I keep dropping out of college?
Why don't I have my driver license yet?
Why am I still working retail where my manager and all my coworkers are younger then me?
...I feel like a loser.
Honestly I guess the last point is the one that bothers me most. Working at a mall at a yoga/ casual athletic wear store where I am the oldest and newest employee. I am 27 turning 28 and selling people yoga pants.
So I guess the big questions for being 27/28 are "What do I do with the rest of my life?" and "What have I been doing with my life?".
Any one out there feel the same way?
Also is working in retail that lame/pitiful as a 27/28 years old? I just don't know anymore?!
