I need an outlet. I need a place to vent. I need to know if there is anyone else out there who can remotely relate to my plight. (Insert dramatic sigh here)
Seriously, being a single, young professional isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s confusing and lonely and at times completely fabulous, but those times are far too rare. Somewhere amid all the pressure of finding your path, pursuing a career, getting hitched and making babies, there are young, bright, arguably stylish, career-oriented-ish people who are trying to figure out what the hell they are supposed to be doing with their lives.
I am one of those people. At least, I think I am. I have a good job, a great family and wonderful friends. So why do I still feel like I’m floating around without a strong sense of purpose? Career objectives? A mate? For me this blog is about differentiating between what I actually want and what I think I should want, what I’m actually doing and what I should be doing, and what my generation is struggling with every day — dissatisfaction.
But don’t worry, it won’t all be gloom, doom and malaise. Being young, wild and free has its perks — lots of free booze at weddings, the ability to blame your indiscretions on your youth (I think this excuse runs its course around 30, fyi), and the opportunity to explore the infinite possibilities that life has to offer.
