How To Guide: Post College Life

Graduating college is totally nerve-wracking. Figuring out your future is difficult enough when you don’t even have your life together now. Luckily for you, here is a short and to-the-point post college life guide focusing on the four most important aspects of your life: money, friendships, relationships, and the “real world.”

Problem 1: College loans, they’re not just imaginary numbers anymore!


Solution: Throw away your mail. If you never received your mail, you can’t be held accountable, right?!



Problem 2: Job Hunting, now that is hard!


Solution: Who needs a job?! Your whole goal was to get in and graduate college. No one said anything about landing some big-money job!



Problem 3: Friendships


Solution: You don’t really need them, only when you want to grab some drinks at the bar…



Problem 4: Relationships


Solution: Don’t stress over it, you’re better off single. 



Problem 5: Real Life


Solution: THERE IS NO SOLUTION! Everything in your life is going to change, there is no rule book to follow. Everyone will have their own path in life and believe me, no one has any idea what they are doing after college. So, Good luck! But remember, when all else fails…



Just embrace the “Real World!”



But also keep this in the back of your mind…
