In roughly a month, I’ll turn 25.
It seems like an opportune time to stop and assess my life thus far, and by “stop and assess my life thus far,” I mean freak the hell out.
Here’s a list of typical “What the hell am I doing with my life?” reactions and a few things I should actually start to work on.
Impractical reactions to turning 25
1. Get a Tattoo
I’ve actually wanted a tattoo for some time but have never gone through with it.
A quarter-life crisis seems like an appropriate time to get one. I’m young enough for it to be socially acceptable, thereby avoiding being the weird middle-aged square in the tattoo parlor.
The only question is, what to get? I’m thinking a tribal arm band made up of Chinese symbols. Those things are still cool, right guys?
2. Buy a Motorcycle
Honestly, I really want a motorcycle, and I’m certain this impulse is directly related to the amount of Sons of Anarchy I watch–too much.
However, there are two huge obstacles standing in my way. One, I don’t know how to ride a motorcycle. Two, I don’t really have the money for one.
So if any readers know a generous, wealthy motorcycle enthusiast who would like to solve an existential dilemma, get at me.
