If you are like me, graduating in December and trying to figure out what life is going to be like after this is all over then you are probably having some similar thoughts as me. I ponder everyday thinking if I want to stay in the same area for graduate school or if I just move back home with mom and dad to save money up? I often think WHY DID I RUSH SCHOOL AND WANT TO GRADUATE EARLY!

For anybody that has not gone through the stress of applying for graduate school, wait no longer and DO IT, you will thank yourself later. I like to say "it's like college applications, but on steroids".

1. I just want summer back.

This is the lame part of the year where we're all depressed because the beach is no longer a thing. Where long nights of summer fun turn into long nights at the library. We don't even have the motivation of winter break in the middle of it all.

2. Why are applying for grad schools so hard?

You want this for what and how much for that? Applying for graduate schools has been the absolute death of me since the beginning of August. First I had to conquer the GRE and now I feel like I am giving my life away.

Let me tell you one thing graduate school applications are like college applications on steroids!

3. You want me to graduate with HOW MUCH debt and gain even MORE debt for MORE schooling?

Because all of the money I just got in debt to do four years of school, yeah I just want to add more onto that.

4. Maybe moving home with mom and dad wouldn't be that bad...

A thought that often crosses my mind... If I just live at home with mom and dad then I can save some money, but do I really want to give that sense of independence away if I move back home?

5. How many more weeks until graduation?

Right now, as I write this only 12 and a half more weeks of the semester left!!

6. Crap, I have to find a full-time job after graduation!

How do I even write a resume? What are future employers going to think of me? How do I even find a job? What is a competitive salary?

7. Can I go back to bed yet?

9:00 - *wakes up to go to class*

9:30-10:45: *complains that she wants to sleep*

11:00-12:15: *more complaining about how I would rather be in bed than sit through class*

12:30: *ahhh, the sweet relief of my bed*

I basically just want to sleep all day, but can you blame me?

8. Why did I wait until now to take this class?

I have been holding off this class for a year now and here I am, last semester, deciding to take it now. We got through the first three chapters (I struggled) and the professor looks at us and goes "if you thought this was hard, wait until we keep going through class." Needless to say, I frantically searched for the tutors email.

9. How do I even adult after I graduate?

How am I even supposed to afford to support myself when we could not even go a week in college without calling home to my mom or dad because I had such a small problem?

10. GRADUATION IS UPON US!

THREE. MORE. MONTHS.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?

13782

If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
