Says Nemo, I don’t recommend touching actual butts unless you know who they belong to. But what I do recommend is watching Finding Nemo, and taking the courage Nemo had to touch the butt (aka boat, for all you losers who have no soul and don’t watch Disney movies), and apply it to your own life. Yes, he did get caught up in the net, and lost for a good part of the two hour movie, but in the end he became the fish he was meant to be, met a lot of quality friends along the way, learned to speak whale, and experienced a life that he wouldn’t have got to if he stayed under the protection of his dad. Disney movies can be so deep sometimes.
If you’re never lost you never get found.
What I have been noticing lately amoung my friends is that we have all finished our undergrads and are either heading off to grad school or cringing at the fact that our new jobs will not be ending in September but are the never ending tunnel that is the “real world.” Either way, we have now entered the period of our life we like to refer to dramatically as the quarter life crisis. Similar to the mid-life crisis, the QLC is when we realize that we are getting old, and we are going to need to be responsible for the first time ever, and we don’t want to spend the rest of our days working 9-5. It really is quite the first world problem. It is the first time that we have been sprung free of school, with no one telling us what to do next. We have time now to find our passion, even if you have to work at a job that you may not like, you can find passion outside of it.
