In a world where everyone seems to be hustling 24/7, it's okay to relax and not feel weird
about it. I've been out of school for over a month now and it feels GREAT to be at home. I don't have to worry about upcoming exams or waking up super early to find good parking - I'm actually loving my time being off. Throughout the whole month of January, I've allowed myself to r-e-l-a-x and do things I enjoy doing like...watch Jane The Virgin on Mondays and eat my favorite chocolate candies all to myself lol.
I'm not trying to make myself sound like a couch potato, I have been applying to jobs and networking online. I also started up a small invitation business and I'm currently working with a few clients. In the midst of all of this, I am genuinely happy with where I am at right now. At times, the guilt of being unemployed after college can kick in but you know what? I learned to not feel bad about spending more time with myself. Once I get in the working field (which will be THIS month) I know I'm going to work my butt off.
Life after college simply means pressing forward and applying what you learned in school to the real world. That's all. Drop the expectations. I don't have it all together but I'm learning along the way. Yes, I'm planning on going back to college to receive my masters but I would like to give my mind a much needed break. While I'm not in school I plan on saving up $$$ , paying off college loans (which isn't much), and building up my credit score. I want to do a bunch of other things but there's just too much to list.
I'm really looking forward to this year and all of the opportunities and learning experiences it will bring. Finding a job in my profession has been a little tough but I know that at the right time everything will fall into place. As I continue my post grad life, I'm counting my blessings along the way. I am a firm believer that things will eventually workout the way it's meant to be. The right opportunities will come at the right time and I am so grateful for what's to come.
