It’s been 4 years since I graduated from college. I remember being 22 and thinking that the whole world was in front of me, but at the same time I remember feeling really confused and cautious because it was like looking into a white-out snow storm. There were a lot of scary things being said at the time, things like, “recession” and “Snooki”. But, eventually, I realized all you can ever really do is go forward and kick as much yeti ass (see: work hard) as you can.
P.S. I’m not typically one to dish out advice, but if you’re a recent grad, here are some things I’ve learned along the way towards the twilight of my post grad years.
1. No one ever asks for your GPA
2. NO ONE EVER ASKS FOR YOUR GPA
3. Your Facebook News Feed is going to turn into a baby and wedding Tumblr.
4. You will absolutely miss mid-day naps
5. There’s nothing wrong with quitting 8 months into your first job out of college. It’s also okay to move to Chicago 2 weeks later, without ever having stepped foot in Chicago.
And what about you guys? What did you learn about yourself or the world around you when you were 22 years old?
