As of Friday, May 18, Karina and I are college graduates and officially “real people” (or so I’ve been told). We tossed our mortar boards high into the air, screamed out of joy, said our tearful goodbyes, then drove over a thousand miles back home to… do what, exactly??? My lazy ass has been glued to the couch for the past twenty four hours. NO SHAME. The TV has remained loyal to USA’s Law and Order SVU marathon for the majority of that time, with the exception of some occasional sports coverage and also Tabitha’s Salon Takeover. I’ve eaten cereal, an egg, some yogurt, and an entire bag of extra butter popcorn. These are the good days.
I realize how lucky I am to have 1. this education and 2. such a relaxing break, so I plan to make the most of my
weeks, months, F this economy, time before starting a job. Here are some fun suggestions to stay busy and keep that post-grad crash at bay:
2. Go out with home friends.
2a. Get your drank on
3. Call/Skype/Text besties from college
4. Do not think about the unemployment rate
4a. Get your drank on
5. Eat some homecooked food
6. Think about all the college-type things you can still do before it’s socially unacceptable in a few months (wear croakies, day drink, dress up in a ridiculous costume, dfmo, etc.)
In short, congrats to the entire class of 2012. Graduation has been equal parts bitter and sweet. Now, the real world beckons! Stay tuned for adulty posts written for mature people with actual responsibilities, like posts examining the economy, healthcare, and our environment.
Jokes, clearly. Keep checking in for articles on meaningless rants, fashion, music, beauty, and our neverending quest towards adulthood. xoxo
