There are three weeks left until I graduate and I am feeling the stress that comes with being a soon-to-be graduate. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my future and about my life after college. Looking for a job has become a job in itself. It sucks to know that you’ve spent four years in college and you’re expected to have some type of plan for after you leave, but you realize you don’t have one. I do have some opportunities available to me, but they’re not paying jobs.
I have been thinking about signing up for the National Guard. That would be something that would keep me occupied while I’m home. I tried to join after my freshman year, but I think it’ll be better for me now since I’m older and a little more mature.
Life just seems to be moving so fast and it’s almost like I’m getting left behind. I look around at the people I know and they’re all either starting families, moving to new places or landing new jobs and I’m still here. It makes me feel like a failure at times, like I wasted part of my life. I hate feeling like this, especially since I’m going to be graduating soon. I’m sure other graduates have felt this way, but I don’t know how to cope with it.
It gets overwhelming at times. Life seems so easy, yet hard at the same time. I want to be successful in life and I know it’s going to take some time to get to where I want to be. A time machine to the future would come in handy right now. Just skip ahead to a better life and a less stressed out me. But that only exists in the movies. I’m talking about you, Marty! 🙂
I didn’t draft this post out so I hope you all don’t mind if my thoughts jump all over the place. That’s just how my brain works at times, especially when I’m trying to write about what it is I’m feeling and thinking.
I hope you all are having great weekends!
