College Graduate

Graduation is a time of celebration. It's a new chapter of your life completed. Most people are ecstatic. They're excited to start a career, make lots of money, get married, have kids, blah blah blah.

I see graduation as a transition. A transition where the real world slaps ya in the face. A transition from sleeping in to waking up at the crack of dawn. From snowboarding frequently to being a frequent weekend warrior. A transition to minimal free time and social isolation (aka home).

But like the saying goes, "All good things must come to an end". Now I must pay off this debt that I am swimming in and get to work. I can cope with the real world.. I'm just terrified.


  1. Honestly I really needed to hear that. I have been super jealous of all of my friends that are graduating. You reminded me that there are ups and downs to every side.

  2. Oh yeah no need to be jealous kat. You're doing just fine with no degree and very much less in debt! lol
