    The memoir of Julia's post-college year in New York City is resplendent with epiphanies and the rollercoaster that is life. Specifically, it is the story of how Julia sank into her quarter life crisis and how she overcame it.

    As someone who is also experiencing the doldrums of post-college adult-life monotony and boredom, questioning "What's next?" and "What do I want to be when I grow up?", I appreciate this jaunt down Julia's Memory Lane. It gives me hope and inspiration on how to overcome this own downward hill of the quarter life crisis.

    I highly recommend this memoir-novella to anyone trying to overcome their own quarter life crisis.
