Post-Graduation Mental Breakdown

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , May 12 2012 · 414 views

First, first graduation entry from this morning.
I’m no longer a “college kid,” but I definitely do not want to identify as “adult.” Because no.

On top of that, I miss my friends more than usual. Probably because in the past, I was assured of seeing them again 4 months later in September. But now…plans are fuzzy. We all have our different directions to go in.

Combine that with tension of being home (sharing room with brother) and having the pressure to find a real job and eventually move out…

Yet, “all my feels” on leaving my friends and the place I spend the majority of my past 4 years living at and calling home.
I have literally stepped from one life into another, and it is new and foreign. I do not know what is going on and I am not prepared to find out. Yet I must.

What is important, however, is that I remain myself. And that I know how to do.

Congratulations, Ben! I know you'll do great wherever life takes you; good luck in everything! You'll definitely be in my prayers, and I do know at least a little bit what you mean, as I'm graduating high school in a couple weeks and won't be seeing many of my friends there again, either. It'll be a change, but change is good, right? Let's hope. Here's to hoping the future is great! *raises glass* (and obligatory secondary toast congratulating you!)

I'm right there with you. It'll probably sound entitled in my complaining given my situation is a little more clear, but I know what you're going through. I'm lucky enough to have a job lined up post graduation (which is this coming Saturday, the 19th), but it means moving to a new city, rooming with someone I don't know very well, having real world responsibilities like paying rent (something I'm at least used to doing), my own phone payments, car payments, insurance payments, etc... Every day I run through disaster scenarios in my head of how the wheels could fall off. I'm going to be off in a big new city without any of my friends alongside me.

In the end, I know I'll get through it. I know the wheels won't fall off and I'll meet new friends and have exciting new opportunities. And so will you. You're a smart guy with a lot to offer. Searching for a job sucks and it can beat you down hard for awhile, but the payoff is worth it and you've got a lot of life ahead of you and so much potential left.

Good luck, man.

Congrats! Enjoy the fresh start - you don't get too many of them in life and they're great opportunities!

Best of luck to you, man! Like Than and B6 said, it's a big change, but also a big opportunity.

:kaukau: I can't quite put myself in your place since I have yet to fully experience college friendships, but the sensation of saying goodbye to a home after a few years is something I'm familiar with. Tough, buddy, but at least you know how to be yourself. It's going to be a little weird, I'm sure, making friends in your "real" job as adults and not exactly knowing them as childhood mates. I hope for you, as I hope for myself, that it's still a really great experience.

For me, though, I plan on going to a 2-year tech school, then complete college at a 4-year school, then probably move on to a few years in graduate school. I don't anticipate any permanence in my life and I'm afraid of making friends at the moment. Lucky you: you probably have a straight path ahead (and loads of college debt). Meanwhile, I also hope you also find a job you truly love and can have a lifelong relationship with.

Your Honor,
Emperor Kraggh
