Have you ever noticed how everyone seems to have an opinion about everything when you're a college graduate? And have you noticed how their opinions all seem to contradict each other? You should go to grad school. You should take some time off. You should get a job, any job that comes along. You should fight hard for your dream job. You should travel the world. Traveling the world is a waste of money. You should get married. You're too young to get married. And on and on it goes. I usually just nod my head or listen politely while people give me these speeches. But hearing everyone else's opinions does make it difficult to listen to your own sometimes.
Ever since graduating from college in May, I've felt slightly lost. It seems that this is considered the norm among recent graduates, but it’s still slightly unnerving. I spent all summer job hunting, interning a few days a week and blogging, blogging, blogging. Then in late August I was offered and accepted the position I currently have. Although it’s a steady job and my co-workers are wonderful, I know and have known since accepting it that it is the wrong job for me.
On the bright side, I’m lucky that when I come home at the end of the day I get to work on the other niche of my life that I love so much. That little niche includes blogging right here and interning for The Everygirl. I can't even tell you how fulfilled these things make me. My days may get long sometimes but it's so nice to know that I get to work on something that I'm actually passionate about at the end of each one.
I just wanted to throw this topic out there for a day, mainly because it is on the forefront of my mind so often. Posts about budget finds and fashion essentials are all lovely, but sometimes it's nice to write about what's actually going on. Is anyone else in the same position right now? Is anyone else still just trying to figure it all out? Hopefully I'm not the only one.
