Three of my friends are engaged to be married. Two no longer live in the country. Someone else I know just bought a house. It’s scary and weird to see all of these major life achievements taking place for people around me, knowing that I will soon join their ranks and make similar life-altering decisions.
It has never been a reality until now: the “Real World” you are plunged into after graduation. What’s it like? Will you survive in it? And, especially in light of the current economic crisis, will it offer all it has promised? If you’ve graduated this spring, you’re probably asking similar questions.
Three years into my degree, I decided I just wasn’t happy. I ended up transferring and, as it turns out, it was the best decision I ever made. Now I know what it’s like to feel the immense satisfaction that comes from knowing you are on your way to doing what you love.
