This past May marked my one-year anniversary since graduating from college. It’s funny… A year ago, I would have never imagined I’d end up where I am now.
Graduation was both a happy and stressful time for me.
On the one hand, I was finally being rewarded after overcoming countless hours spent in classroom lectures, several all-nighters studying for tests that meant the difference between passing or failing courses, and more unanswered questions than I care to remember.
On the other hand, graduation was also the final threshold to becoming a fully certified, professionally working adult, and I wasn’t sure if I was ready for that responsibility yet.
Now I know that some students may be having the exact same experience right now, and as much as I want to say don’t stress about it, I realize that’s easier said than done. I’m not here to sugar coat things: Life after college is hard.
