Welcome to Shahd H. Rashed's Tea Party Blog

26 before 26!!

I have always had certain age milestones that I am looking for (18, 21, 25, 30, 60). Last week, I have reached my third milestone. Now, I have lived a quarter of a century on this Earth. I might be having the quarter-life crisis, still not sure. In the middle of all of the celebrations, I have thought of 26 things that I want to do before this time next year.

First, I want to give you a glimpse on what is the quarter-life crisis I might be having during this time of my life for those who don't know it. Then, we will proceed to our blog topic (26 things to achieve before I reach 26). Quarter-life crisis is the anxiety you have over your live. Am I working on the right direction? Do I have a high quality of life? It all starts with questioning your purpose of life, then social media makes you feel anxious. There is an inner-conflict between being an independent grown-up & wanting your parents to take good care of you.
