It’s been a long time. For so long, I had no idea what I was going to write in this post but I knew it needed to be done. To be honest, I still don’t know what I’m gonna write but hopefully as I start typing it will flow lol. Let’s see, where did we leave off? I was in my last semester of college (which was kicking my butt). I was worried about finding a job, what I wanted to do, where I was gonna live, etc. etc. You know, the normal worries for someone who was about to graduate. The big question was do I move back home or stay in Orlando? I felt like I needed to stay in Orlando, but I didn’t know if I was going to find a job to be able to afford to live as an entry level employee. I felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders. It was tough. Especially being the planner that I am, it’s hard not knowing what your next steps are.
As graduation gets closer and closer, the one thing that’s on everyone’s mind is “What do I do now?” Should I go to grad school? How do I find a job? What’s the job hunt going to be like? We’ve been in school all of our lives and now we have to put to use what we’ve learned over the past couple of years and go out there and find a job. My beautiful and talented friend, Rebecca, gave me some of the best after graduation advice a couple of months a go. Today, I have asked her to share on the blog the process she went through finding a job after graduation and how she powered through it…
So a couple of weeks ago, I turned 22. You know that one age that no one really acknowledged until Taylor Swift made a song about it? Surprisingly, I did not have Taylor Swift blaring through the apartment, but I must say I am feeling 22. This year is a huge year for me. I graduate from college and end that season of my life. I have to put my degree to work and find a big girl job. This year, adulting happens in full effect. So many changes are about to happen and take place in my life. I honestly don’t know if I’m ready for it, but it doesn’t matter because it’s happening lol.
Through my many life experiences at 22, I have learned some things. You know that saying, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger?” I used to think it was a bunch of bologna, but it honestly is true. Over the past couple of years I have had amazing memories, but also some horrible ones. But in every moment, good and bad, I have learned a lesson. Here are a few things I’ve learned over the years:
