It’s entirely possible to care for someone, know they care for you, and be aware of the fact that you just aren’t on paths that will ever intersect long enough to be together in the long term. If one of you wants kids and the other wants to move somewhere new every six months, it’s safe to say you won’t settle down together. But that doesn’t discount what you have in the present.
Graduating from college is probably the most bittersweet experience of your young life. The best four years of your life are now behind you and if you’re anything like me, you have just about nothing lying in front of you.
I get it. No amount of Internet articles about how millennials really aren’t all that bad can alleviate the impending doom of our future (unless there is an abundance of GIFs, which this article is lacking).
Understanding this law is useful during a physics exam but surprisingly, I have discovered, it can also be applied to solve some of life’s more challenging personal problems.
As a recent grad, I can finally say it: I did it! Yes, I got my degree, but I also completed something else I’m proud of: I survived four years living 1000 miles away from home.

The process of applying for a new job is one of the most challenging phases in the life of a fresh graduate or an experienced candidate in search for a new career opportunity.
