It seems unfair that it is easiest to live in the present when something is coming to an end. I had concluded that these types of moments -the ones that serve as poignant reminders of our existence, were fleeting.
No one has themselves figured out at age 22 or 23, and if they say they do, I can 100 percent guarantee you that they are lying to you.
Sweatpants serving as acceptable attire for any occasion. As opposed to after college, when donning sweatpants for seven days straight is about as far from acceptable as you can get. Passing stretchy jeans off at work might be the closest you can get to those glory days, but it does make you appreciate weekends that much more.
For the modern 20 something there are so many career options out there that didn’t even exist 10 years ago. In fact, the average millennial changes their job every three to four years.
I think for a lot of 20-somethings, there’s this panic after college that’s like, “Oh shit, this is it.” It’s a very turbulent time period, dramatic ups and downs. Being with my family reminded me to let go of the things that don’t matter. Not everything that goes wrong has to be treated like the end of the world.
Don’t be afraid to brag. Be proud of what you have done. If you’re anything like the people I graduated with, you’re capable of great things.
Finding a job is like having a job. It’s a tedious, demanding process that can sometimes drive you up a wall.
I guess paying for your own Netflix is what ultimately classifies someone as a real adult. But there’s something about it being free and under someone else’s name that makes binge-watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer that much more appealing.
I am worried that life is going to pass me by. That I’m going to get a job I hate but stay at for security. That I’ll make decisions in my life based on what I think I should do instead of what I want to do. That I’ll follow a path designed for me by people who think they know what I should do based on well-intentioned, yet often unsolicited advice.
Took a few really awesome road trips. I worked three jobs after college (so if you assume people who didn’t go full-time right out of school are lazy, you’re mistaken), but it’s a lot easier to take a random Monday off when you’re working mainly in the service industry.
