If you’ve recently graduated college, congratulations! You’ve finally made it. You’ve finally checked off all the boxes on your college “to-do” list, and you may be more than ready to close this chapter of your life. Yet, this can sometimes be a weird time of your life. You may not have a plan to get up and move somewhere special, or even have any idea of what career path you’d like to go down.
Being a college graduate can be more than rewarding, but what you choose to do with it is the most valuable. You may be ready to kick back and relax with your closest loved ones while you contemplate the next big change. You have to sit there and ask yourself the hard questions. For instance, should you get a roommate or live on your own? What career path should you take your degree? Do you want to stay in the town you reside in, or move across the country? What should your monthly budget now look like? The world is your oyster — you’re now able to do what you want, when you want, and how you want without having school in the picture.
During uncertain times, you may find yourself stressing about this more than normal. From figuring out what area you’d like to apply your degree, to moving across the country, or even learning how to live on your own. Sometimes, getting your feet on the ground can be a little shocking. Even though college may have taught you a lot, there may have been some things that have fallen through the cracks. From how to manage your life, money, and passionate projects like a boss.
