young adulthood and the dilemmas that come with it
My quarter life crisis has just begun.
Quarter life Crisis: 1) Somone between the ages of 23-30. 2) A marketing catch phrase used my the media and corporations to instill fear and insacurity in young adults to consume products; much like a 'mid-life crisis'. 3) Half way between a fetus-life cirsis and a mid-life crisis; however, only half a life away from a 3/4-life crisis and 3/4 of a life away from death.
Stuffy-Corporate guy: Hmmm. seems sales on cargo pants, SUV's and Life Insurace is down, what shall we do Jenkins?
Jenkins: I dunno sir. Perhaps we could fuck with college students minds by telling them they are having a 'quarter life crisis'; thereby, instagating mass consumption of these products; therefor, padding the 3/4 profits of the company.
Stuffy-Corporate guy: Brillant! Jenkins! Now, i'll have the usual Club sandwhich on brown bread if you please.
Jenkins: C'ommin right up sir.
a time period of confusion, self doubt, and need for change during the first 25 years of one's life.
Since old farts have midlife crisis, and I am under 25, I must be having a quarter life crisis.
From the John Mayer song "Why Georgia"
"Might be a quarter life crisis"
the moment you realize you are a quarter of a century old.
A: Dude, you're oooold.
B: I'm only 25.
A: That's a quarter of a century.
B: What? What?! Ack!
You are considered to have a "Quarter Life Crisis" if you have had a nervous breakdown between the ages of 20 and 30.
See One Eight Life Crisis
or Mid Life Crisis
for more information on the former.
"I am seriously, like, having a nervous breakdown"
(Evesdropping Bystander thinks...) She's having a Quarter Life Crisis!
1. Peroid of life following one's exit from college and preceding one's entrance into the real world.
2. Subject matter of an accurate John Mayer song.
~ see John Mayer lyrics
