As ridiculous as this sounds, I feel like I’m having a quarter life crisis (give or take a few years). I’ve been under a lot of stress and have been really unhappy for the past two months due to work. I feel guilty because I keep getting told “you’re lucky you even have job” and it just contributes to my overall bad feels.
All I want to do is quit working and go travel around the world with www.helpx.net for a few months living and working in different places with different people. I know this isn’t “good for my career” and that I won’t make any money during this time but I need a positive change. Maybe I just need a vacation or just to do something uplighting. Lately I’ve just been having feelings of regret over giving up my 6 months of work and travel in Asia in 2011.
"Ask your female friends, if you have any, if they’ve ever walked home late at night with a key pushed through their knuckles, just in case, if they’ve ever crossed the street to avoid a stranger, just in case, if they’ve ever taken the long way home because of the weird guy on the corner, just in case. Ask them if they’ve ever made up a boyfriend to get a guy to leave them alone, if they’ve ever gotten off a train car and moved to the next because you just never know, if they’ve ever shelled out for a cab because men like you were at the bus stop. Do you really want to be that guy?"

Remember the time when I had time to read tumblr and make posts? I wish I still had that time and happiness.
