6 Things They Never Tell You Before Graduating College
“ 1. You’re going to feel heartbroken.
Something about what you’re leaving is going to make you feel a little lost and alone, much like breaking up with a significant other. You may even have that movie moment as you drive away from your university and break down in tears as the school gets smaller in your rearview mirror. It sounds silly, but it’s going to happen. You’ll go to hug a friend and out of nowhere you’ll start to ugly cry. You’ll get emotional about all the little things all at once and it’s okay to just let those feelings happen. It’s perfectly normal to be sad about leaving such a comforting place that helped you grow into a new person. When you come back to visit in a few months, you’ll realize that while you don’t necessarily miss college, you miss your friends. The hardest lesson about leaving college is realizing you’ll never be in one place with all of these friends again. Sure, you can have reunions, but there’s something wonderful about doing mundane everyday things with these friends and that won’t happen again.”
You all complain about how finding a job after college is impossible. It’s not. Difficult? Yes, but it’s not impossible and it’s not the worst part about life after college. THIS is the worst part. If the above excerpt doesn’t resonate with you, then you went to the wrong school.
This is so painfully accurate. Especially the ugly sobs part. Random breakdowns littered my senior year. I’ll never forget my college days.
And don’t even get me started on that triggering nonsense. And I’m not talking about a war veteran hearing gunshots, I’m talking about teenagers that are like “I used to get called ugly so now ugly is triggering me” like girl grow up get some vitamin D and I don’t mean of the wiener variety I mean get some sun. go outside.
