Cue the wind energy boom. Truly luck of the dumbest variety laid the perfect solution right at my feet. I've been involved in wind energy since 2007 and absolutely love my job. I could not imagine a better mix of purpose, activity, and technical challenge. I don't get out on the river as much but that's fine because I've been there and done that. I've got new challenges ahead of me and I'm very excited about the direction my life is going. By the way ... in my travels I happened to meet and marry the woman of my dreams. We live in a little house right next to a waterfall and just had our first baby. Like I said life is good!
Regarding the "quarter life crisis" I really think my life would've been remarkably different if I HADN'T listened to the devil on my shoulder that kept saying "This sucks and you know it!" My advice to folks about to experience the "quarter life crisis" is GO FOR IT! Results may vary but here's a couple guidelines.
1) get rid of the negative - quit your sucky job, dump your loser boyfriend/girlfriend, don't hang out with or listen to friends/family who are negative
2) surround yourself with the positive - actively seek out things you've always wanted to do, seek and explore other directions or career options, make life happen!
