How's life after college ?

Recommended Posts

Whats most difficult for me post-college is struggling with deciding whether i care or don't care about other people's judgment. I'm always wondering if i made an awful career choice by leaving my first job out of college (wonderful career growth opportunities, but toxic environment). Seeing former peers are moving up the ladder while i'm still where I was two years ago when I switched jobs. Some days I tell myself I don't really care where others are--I'm content where I'm at, and other days I second guess myself and ask myself if I truly am okay being where I am in life. It's like I'm having a quarter century crisis every day--except i'm not longer a quarter of a century old anymore!

 

sigh*. most days I wish I was still in high school.

well... in my imagination it seemed a bit different... I thought I'd party as always and spend on shopping, clothing, makeup and other stuff but the real life of course different

It's busy. I wish work days were shorter and weekends were longer so that I can spend more time doing things outside of work lol. Life after college is also very liberating in some ways. I moved out from my parent's house two years post graduate school and into an apartment with my fiancé. It's very different to have your own space and to be able to decorate your apartment reflective of your life style and personality. There's something very comforting about the whole thing. Socializing post-college is a bit hard outside of work relationships and outside of making friends through your own close circle of friends. It certainly requires more effort and proactivity to put yourself out there in social situations and make yourself feel uncomfortable :P . I also feel like the world is "your playground." There's no "set path" per say like there was when you're young (I.e Complete high school, go to college, get a job, etc.). Maybe you like to spend your evenings attending dance classes or yoga classes. I spend my weekends taking spinning classes and taking my fur baby to dog parks :D
