For Every Post-Grad Out There…

There’s a bizarre stage in life that affects a very specific demographic of people but is widely regarded as one of the most the most pivotal and crucial a person will experience in his or her lifetime. It may be two months until you start that fabulous internship, a year until you move to that foreign country, a semester before grad school, or five years in your parents’ basement. It’s a total toss-up.

Yup, I’m talking about that dreaded POST-GRAD life. So here’s to you, fellow wanderers and societal misfits.

1. Everyone tells you that college is the time when you’ll find your direction and purpose….they’re lying. It’s really the few months after college when you realized that you wasted all your time with all that theory and “intentional living”. You think back to that happy, naive 18 year old idiot who thought “of course, I’ll be employed immediately with this superfluous major!”

8. You’re hoping for an eventual epiphany to get you out of your rut
