Exactly a month from Friday I will be crossing the stage in Kingston, Rhode Island for my undergraduate college graduation. Adorned in the traditional cap and gown, I, like the hundreds of thousands of college graduates this year, will join the proverbial "real world". I will also be returning home to lovely Marlboro, New Jersey.
I'm not going to lie, I'm excited for my life to begin! But the idea of becoming an actual adult is nothing short of daunting.
How long will it take me to find a full-time job and start a career? Will my public relations internship for the summer transcend into a solid, well-paying job? How long will my parents let me live with them, or more importantly, how long will I want to live with them? Will I remain close with my friends from Rhode Island, or will those college bonds fade?
Am I alone in this thinking, or does this happen to everyone?
How did you handle college graduation? How are you handling it?
