Post Grad Life.
You just got to go with it.
Here is my sappy bullshit attempt of sharing my personal experiences and advice of post grad life.
So first thing.
Whatever you’re doing make sure you’re happy.
I know working full time and having you’re college days tap out is shit.
But guess what?
It’s life. I have had a hard time accepting that yes, I did in fact graduate and I am no longer in college. Trust me I cried.
So a lot of tears, a couple handles and maybe a pizza…. or eight later I am learning this thing called copeing.
And I am not sure if it is a problem knowing I have had a harder time getting over graduating than any ex boyfriend…
Well shit. Sounds like a personal problem.
So, my overall point of this ramble is, what the hell do you do with your life?
Not so much.
But, I can reassure you that you are not the only one thinking it.
Ever since I’ve adulted, this is what I have learned:
1. Family. One of the most important things in your life
Yes, they are annoying. But, they love you dammit.
2. Friends. You’re support system who understands you on a different level than you’re family. Let’s be real, you won’t be telling your family about last night’s hook up. Sorry Mom & Dad if you’re reading this.
But not really.
Once you graduate college you chose who you want to have in your life. This time has shown me who I want to make the effort for. You know who you are.
3. Location. Probably one of the most dreaded things that you actually have to think about. Where do I work? Where do I want to live?
Writing this right now makes me a little nauseous.
But, if you look at it in a positive way you are a free little bird.
Take advantage. Similar to if a guy is willing to buy you a drink at a bar. You take advantage.
It’s called survival.
4. Career. By far something that has caused me enough stress eating to last me a couple months.
You apply for a job that you like and just like that you’re employed. Magic.
Except for not.
I hate to be that buzz kill.
You have to accept that this time in your life won’t be as ideal as you imagined. You have to start from the bottom and put the best you’ve got into what you want.
I am not going to lie to you.
I didn’t really like my first job, but I have learned that being down about it only brings you…well let’s just say it’s not up.
So keep on putting yourself out there and what you truly work for will eventually come.
5. Relationships. If you are not stable, somewhat like myself, commitment isn’t a thing.
This is the time in your life to be selfish.
I hate to get personal and shit but here’s my love life summed up:
Single. Broke. Foodie (Free food in particular). Judge me.
But a wise person once said,
“Getting married in your early 20’s is like leaving a party at 9:15pm.”
I think I want to be friends with the person who said that.
Now let’s connect the dots.
If there is one thing I have learned from my experiences so far is life is too short.
But don’t let yourself live a life if you’re not happy. Change it and don’t look back.
Essentially, surround yourself by people you like. Screw the ones who bring you down.
Aint nobody got time for negative bullshit & dream killas.
And please don’t read this and think my life is perfect and that I’ve got it all figured out.
Enjoy your life everyday.
I am not saying its easy by all means, but it helps.
End of rant.
