We met in college at the University of Richmond where we were roommates for three years and we’ve been soulmates ever since. The best thing about our friendship is that we challenge each other to think about things deeply and we encourage each other to be the best version of ourselves. Leading up to the creation of this blog we’d both been feeling restless and disillusioned about the state of our world and our lives. Soon we realized that almost every mid-twenty-something that we know felt the exact same way.
The quarter life crisis marks a period of idealism and passion that is constantly and brutally confronted by reality, pessimism and complacency. So we are struggling to live a life that preserves our passion and our values, and simultaneously keep our feet planted firmly on the ground. Which is no small task.
Yet there is comfort to be found in all of this. There is comfort in the fact that we are not alone. We are all going through these struggles together. We think that when we talk about these struggles and even laugh about them, they become less scary and more manageable.
We want to write about things that we think other mid-twenty somethings will be able to relate to. And don’t worry, it’s not just going to be serious stuff. This blog will cover everything from our observations about what’s going on in the world to our latest Netflix binge-worthy find. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll probably close this tab before you read this far. TLDNR. K bye.
