I am a writer, but I love sex more than I love writing. And I am not getting paid for sex. In fact, as you might imagine, my sex life is really tanking right now. But I don’t sit up at night thinking, should I do writing or sex? Because career decisions are not decisions about “what do I love most?” Career decisions are about what kind of life do I want to set up for myself? -Penelope Trunk
I can’t tell you how many of my friends are going through quarter-life crises right now. We just don’t know what to do with ourselves and are anxious about finding our purpose in life.

This article by Penelope Trunk was a refreshing take on career advice, plus the quote above cracked me up. Hope this helps you find your way and balance yourself out! Or at least stress out about it a little less.
