Entering The Real World

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , May 12 2012 · 414 views

life college graduation
Well, here I go. Graduation is about to start. Pretty soon I will be expected to actually get a "real job" (which is fine because hey I have this degree here), move out (which is fine because I like privacy), and become self-sufficient (which is fine because I practically already am).
I just don't like the pressure to get searching for those things...

But hey, I'm graduating! A BA in Journalism from Christopher Newport University with a minor in Philosophy/Religious Studies.

I've made plenty of friends (and some enemies) who I am going to miss (until I see them again, which I'll blindly assume will happen more often than it will, at least for the summer). I've learned a lot about myself and the things I believe in, the world around me and other people.

I am definitely not who I was when I moved in as a freshman, and seeing those marks in my life where I grew is exciting. And it is that fact that makes me realize that I can continue on in life, to develop myself so I make my mark on the world, however small (or large), and a mark for myself.

Granted, that is all pretty scary. I am pretty sure that were I to be handed $5,000 right now, I'd go escape and hike Europe for a few months, escaping all this madness and being able to be free of worry for just a little longer. No joke.

Fun fact: since graduating I have only seen four of the people I went to college with, and two of those were completely random chance encounters. I hope that works out better for you.

And find a job, you unemployed bum! :P

I've got a job at Barnes and Noble! It's a nice start while I look for someplace to practice my journalistic talents.

And heh, do you mind not seeing your peers (the ones you care about)?

:kaukau: Interesting read. It's nice to see your interests coming through in this article, if only because I can infer them through your major and minor, but hey, that says a lot about someone, and I find your areas of study intriguing.

Anyway, were I handed $5,000 right after graduation, I'd spend it all on repaying college loans because it's the most logical thing to do.

Either that or I would immediately buy one of the 3000 mind Helms of Sauron off of someone, because the price for those things keeps on going up.

Your Honor,
