Mid-Life Crisis?

I want to quit my job so bad. SO. BAD.

It's become dreadful. I never thought that I would reach this point. But after two and a half years, and a new boss, point has been reached.

I think my new boss is the majority of the problem, and I can't wait until the day I can really give my notice, and tell them exactly why I am quitting.

Is it possible to go through a mid-life crises at 30? Because I truly believe that's what my problem is. I want to do something so different than what I am doing now. I don't want to be a part of the corporate world anymore. I want to be creative. I want to take photos, and make things. Paint. Sell the things I do create. I desperately want to be a struggling artist.

I'm trying to hold out until March, when I get my annual bonus. It will be a rather large bonus (hooray corporate world), and between that and some other things we have coming in, there will be a nice nest egg in our savings account. I'm pimping out my photography skills as much as I possibly can these days in an effort to try and save any extra cash.

I want to quit. So bad.

I do think it's possible to have a mid-life crisis at 30. Because I truly think I am there. I need to take this little time that I have and focus primarily on the creative. The things that make me happy. Prove to myself that I can do this. I KNOW I can do this. I want to do this.

I can do this.

Fingers crossed.

no, sweetie. It's not a mid life crisis. It's a crisis of your work life. You know what you DON'T want to do! As for what you want to do... maybe!
