I am EUCRASIAC. According to the author: I exemplify a proper mixture of the four humors, or eucrasia. Unduly misproportioned humors cause disease, named dyscrasia. I am, in fact, unnaturally healthy. I have to check my pulse; I may be dead. ~ Kulot
Are You a Child of the 80s?
Trapped between the "Baby Boomers" and "Generation Y" is a special generation ... a generation we call "Children of the Eighties."
So, are you a Child of the '80s? You're facing a long uphill culture battle to stay tuned-in to that great decade, so follow our advice:
Never forget or deny your 80s heritage. Be sure to start most of your sentences with "Back in the 80s" or "When I was your age"...
Spend a majority of your time in your late 20s & early 30s obsessing over how much better things were "back then".
Never let them see you sweat.
HERE ARE LINKS TO THE WONDERFUL 80'S
The Quarter-Life Crisis: A must-read for the late 20-somethings and early 30-somethings!
It is when you stop going along with the crowd and start realizing that there are a lot of things about yourself that you didn't know and may or may not like. You start feeling insecure and wonder where you will be in a year or two, but then get scared because you barely know where you are now.
You start realizing that people are selfish and that, maybe, those friends that you thought you were so close to aren't exactly the greatest people you have ever met and the people you have lost touch with are some of the most important ones. What you do not realize is that they are realizing that too and are not really cold or catty or mean or insincere, but that they are as confused as you.
You look at your job. It is not even close to what you thought you would be doing or maybe you are looking for one and realizing that you are going to have to start at the bottom and are scared; You miss the comforts of college, of groups, of socializing with the same people on a constant basis. But then you realize that maybe they weren't so great after all.
You are insecure and then secure. You laugh and cry with the greatest force of your life. You feel alone and scared and confused. Suddenly change is the enemy and you try and cling on to the past with dear life but soon realize that the past is drifting further and further away and there is nothing to do but stay where you are or move forward.
You get your heart broken and wonder how someone you loved could do such damage to you or you lay in bed and wonder why you can't meet anyone decent enough to get to know better. All this while you had been convincing yourself that you didn't want to be tied down to any one person. Now suddenly you have moments of self-doubt when you wonder if you waited too long and let someone special get away.
You love someone but maybe love someone else too and cannot figure out why you are doing this because you are not a bad person. Random hook ups start to look cheap and getting wasted and acting like an idiot starts to look pathetic. You want to be independent but suddenly, the idea of having the stability of a special someone to trust and lean on doesn't seem all that bad. You want to be your own person and yet be taken care of at the same time.
You go through the same emotions and questions over and over and talk with your friends about the same topics because you cannot seem to make a decision. You worry about loans and money and the future and making a life for yourself and while winning the race would be great, right now you'd just like to be a contender.
We are in our best of times and our worst of times, trying as hard as we can to figure this whole thing out. Send this to your twenty-something friends...Maybe it will help some one feel like they are not alone in the state of confusion that is our post-grad years!!!
