#OMG: 21 Signs You Are Having a Quarter-Life Crisis!

Remember Rachel from F.R.I.E.N.D.S.? She ran away from her wedding, moved to a new city, and started waiting tables at a coffee shop - a job she was no good at and hated. She constantly cribbed about the fact that her life had no direction, until one day she found her calling. There was no stopping her after that! If you are in your mid-twenties, stuck with a job you hate, and no life outside of it, you might just be having a quarter-life crisis...


1. Your mother never fails to remind you that she was married/ had kids at your age.
