As graduation is approaching, I find something new to worry about everyday. I feel like I’m the only one who is going through this, as many people I know have at least an idea of what they want to do. But me… I have NO clue, absolutely none. As I express these (sometimes) irrational worries to my friends, I have come to realize, most of us who are about to graduate, are equally scared. Of course there are those over achievers (just kidding, I’m just jealous of y’all) that already have job interviews lined up and a clear understanding of what they want out of life. But what about those who don’t? Well, don’t worry. I mean, do worry, but try and remember that you are not alone. Some of these fears may include:
1) What the fuck am I good at?
2) How am I going to find a job that can support my lifestyle?
3) I just graduated from a top university, but 50,000 people go there… so who cares.
4) Is this seriously happening to me?
5) When’s the right time to move out of this city?
(There are plenty more but we don’t need to go there)
Today while leaving my advisors office, he looked at me, smiled, and said, “Congratulations, you are so close to being done!” While this upcoming event is extremely exciting, it’s also extremely scary, and now all I want to do is lay in bed and have someone tell me what to do with my life. I mean if you decided to go to college you have been in school for 17 years (maybe more, maybe less) and do professors, parents, advisors, & God, even realize that this is extremely difficult to come to terms with. My whole life has been school, and I honestly feel like school is what I am good at. I’m not artistic, I’m slightly dumb in terms of technology, and I can’t sing/act/model. So what now!? I have seriously never related to a show more than I relate to Girls.
There is a silver lining though y’all! We are young, Barack Obama is president, we have the world at our finger-tips, we just need to figure out what we want.
